CCDD 102014—Forced Retirement

Cool Card Design of the Day
10/20/2014 - It's awkward that Oblivion Ring and Banishing Light are targeted removal enchantments like Pacifism, but aren't auras, and you don't name your target until after the spell resolves. Here I take a stab at a couple alternate templates for an updated Journey to Nowhere.

CCDD 101614—Inevitable

Cool Card Design of the Day
10/16/2014 - Here's another keyword inspired from yesterday's Twitter discussion about auras. Inevitable shirks the fizzle rule (to an extent) by letting you choose a new target if your first choice bites it.

CCDD 101514—Invoke

Cool Card Design of the Day
10/15/2014 - This 'invoke' mechanic was basically invented by George Gone. It's like evoke for auras. One of the downsides of auras that always takes second stage to their grave potential for card disadvantage is how often they're just stuck in your hand. This site has messed with mechanics like living weapon already (and before living weapon was revealed), so let's explore this other solution.
