ah, forced-blocking is the obvious way to do it.
ok, fine - inventing 'first fight
Fight is precisely identical to saying "Each creature deals damage equal to its power to the other". The only abilities that affect the outcome of fight are those that affect damage dealing (lifelink, deathtouch, wither, infect) or damage receiving (protection, indestructible).
Oh for... seriously? First strike doesn't work in a fight?
I... fear you're running into the "fight isn't combat damage" problem again. This will die the moment it fights anything with more than 0 power.
Very interesting! Half of it you can get without the charge-and-sac part, with something like Blood Artist, but getting both halves on one card is pretty potent, so the sorcery-speed delay makes sense.
yay, Azaezelbunny. And Bob.
Mashup of Elephant token + Port
Elephant giving islandwalk? Possible, but not quite right. Let's colourshift the evasion ability into green. And I added the pump so it's not as much of a letdown if you sac this.
I can't decide if this should have trample itself.
On a related note, I am constantly disappointed that elephant-themed auras like Elephant Guide and Mammoth Umbra are never called "Pachydermis" :)
It didn't really get reprinted. Just in Masters Edition which is "get all the weird old cards into MTGO" and in a From The Vault set which was "foils for the collectors and EDH players".
It's not been reprinted in an actual paper set with modern design principles, is what I'm saying.
Yeah, Maze of Ith ot reprinted, so we know it's allowed sometimes. This still feels a bit unsatisfying.
Maybe: ":Add to your mana pool, and put a +1/+1 counter on a legendary creature you spend this mana on" or something like that.
To be honest, I know the arguments, but I wish they made a few more lands that don't produce mana, since I like the stress they provide. But only a small sprinkle, though, because of... well... stress.
"isn't there a forest with a +1/+1 counter you can move onto a creature" - Yep, Llanowar Reborn.
This is actually very similar to Novijen, Heart of Progress, but removes the 2-mana cost to make up for also losing the ability to tap for colourless. Which is a big problem - this isn't really a land.
You can click the mouseover link to see the Oracle text. In this case the Oracle for Ogre Enforcer includes the pretty yucky phrase "lethal damage dealt by a single source is marked on it".
(fix typo) Not seen the enforcer. I guess the comp rules version of it would be something like "Damage to ~ wears off whenever you have priority."?
doing that (Also, darn, the cutesy fire elemental is mostly out of view)
Very nice. Sensible costing, interesting ability. Reminds me of Ogre Enforcer, but a lot nicer within the rules. Good one.
