New Ability Word Idea

Post  Zuty on Mon May 03, 2010 6:22 pm

I was going through the Invasion set when I came across the Djinn cycle in the set.

We can put that into a word:

'NAME BONUS as long as COLOR is the most common color among all permanents or is tied for most common.'

Dominance -- NAME BONUS as long as COLOR is the most common color among all permanents or is tied for most common.

Dominance Red -- Goblin Guy gets +99/-99 as long as Red is the most common color among all permanents or is tied for most common.

Dominance Black -- Big Bad Monster gets +666/+666 and Fear as long as Black is the most common color among all permanents or is tied for most common.

Dominance Colorless -- Imma Rowbot gains Phasing as long as Colorless is the most common color among all permanents or is tied for most common.

Why limit it to colors?

Dominance Enchantments -- Auramancer Dude is Indestructible as long as Enchantments are the most common permanents or is tied for the most common number of permanents.

Dominance Lands -- Treefolk Person gets +0/+0 as long as Lands are the most common permanents or is tied for the most common number of permanents.

-----

Can you guys help me iron this one out?

that Djinn cycle sucked. i dunno, i don't like this ability. you have to keep a tally of how many permanents there are with different attributes.... too much counting.

as an aside, "colorless" isn't a color.

My bad:

Dominance Colorless -- Imma Rowbot gains Phasing as long as Colorless non-land permanents are the most common permanents or is tied for the most common number of permanents.

Yeah, the cycle sucks, but it's on other cards too like Tsabo's Assassin, Heroic Defiance, or Barrin's Unmaking and all you would do for those would be to change the words around.

Black Aura Thingy
3BB
Enchantment - Aura
Enchant Creature.
Dominance Black -- Enchanted creature gets +5/+5 as long as Black is the most common color among all permanents or is tied for most common.

still, the counting thing is clunky and annoying. every time you do/look at anything to do with the Dominance cards, you have to count permanents. as such, they are totally anti-multiplayer, and they require a lot of building around to have their ability go online. basically, you'd have to pack every deck you play Dominance cards in with a playset of Painter's Servants.

this ability was fine for a cycle of limited-relevant Djinns in Invasion, and maybe for another cycle in a future set, but i don't think it's worth an ability word.
