[CON] Jhessian Balmgiver, Drag Down

  • #1
    Ok...Let's me make two easy puzzles..


    How to Make Magic: 961
    Today I am sharing the cards that I love a lot and hopefully will bring inspiration to all card designers!

    This is how Jhessian Balmgiver is born:

    Mark1: So we need to fill in this slot.
    Mark2: Ok, My head hurt, shall we just look at Invasion?
    Mark3: Good idea, since we are reprinting those bears anyway!
    Mark1: (pointing at one card) How about this???
    Mark2: Not bad..But one of the ability no longer fits the colour wheel!
    Mark3: We gave this to red already, you forgot PC?
    Mark1: Well, shall we just keep the other ability and change this one to the Jhessian ability, since it is called Jhessian anyway.
    Mark2&3: Yeah..sounds good to me!

    Another Day in the office:

    Mark1: oh dear..keep thinking variant for this type of effect is boring..
    Mark2: Yes, but we have to do it..This is what this colour is meant for!
    Mark3: Um..couldn't we sort of do a variant like the one in Morningtide
    Mark1: Not a bad idea! Well done Mark.
    Mark2: Yeah..and clearly we can use the keyword of this set.
    Mark3: Wait..This will be too good. We don't want it to be as good as the one in Rav or Lowryn!
    Mark1: That is right! We want White to be the new King. Let's up the mana cost by one!

    This is how Brag Down comes into this current form.




    Jhessian Balmgiver 1WU
    Creature - Human Cleric? (Unc)
    :symtap:: Prevent the next 1 damage that would be dealt to target creature or player.
    :symtap:: Target creature is unblockable this turn.
    1/1



    Drag Down 2B
    Instant (common)
    Domain - Target creature gets -1/-1 until end of turn for each basic land type you control.

    Your riddle seems entirely too vague...
    I will leave the thread alone for a little bit, but if it turns into a disaster...


    Oh wait, I know what the balmgiver does.
    It taps to make a creature unblockable, or to prevent damage.

    1WU
    Creature - Human Shaman? (U)
    T: Prevent the next 1 damage that would be dealt to target creature or player.
    T: Target creature is unblockable this turn.
    1/1

    Drag Down is a Domain -x/-x sorcery or instant, I suppose.

    Jhessian Balmgiver, lol. That card should be famous, you know. It's because of it that captaindecoy discovered the complete Conflux name list so many moons ago.

    Brag Down 2B
    Sorcery
    Domain - target creature gets -x/-x, where x is the number of basic-land types you control.
    Each reality is but the dream of another, and each sleeper a god unknowing.

    I can't figure out if you are talking about Samite Archer or Treefolk Healer. I'm thinking the Archer, but damage prevention is still W, right?

    The riddle says one of the abilities is not in color anymore, but the other is fine.

    I'm guessing the Balmgiver is similar to Samite Archer. Am I close?

    I figure

    Jhessian Balmgiver 1WU
    Creature - Human Cleric Archer
    :symtap:: Prevent 1 damage
    :symtap:: ~ deals 1 damage to target attacking or blocking creature.
    1/1
    "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."


  • #9
    Well. if damage Prevention is still in white..that means?
  • #10
    I'm guessing they changed: "Tagret creature can't block." (red) to "~ becomes unblockable" (Jhessian)

    Something like:
    Jhessian Balmgiver 1UW
    Creature - Human Cleric
    Exalted
    T: prevent 1 damage
    1/1
    Quote from luminum can

    Intervening if clauses are similar to Santa Clauses in that they always check twice.
  • #12
    Samite Archer
    Jhessian Infiltrator
    Outrider of Jhess

    So... Unblockable seems unlikely on a healer, and I believe we still miss an instance of Exalted...

    Jhessian Balmgiver 1WU
    Creature - Human Cleric
    T: Prevent the next 1 damage that would be dealt to target creature or player this turn.
    Exalted
    1/1

    ?

    1, 2 - The TS angel wasn't Serra, and doesn't have Echo, Echo; 3 - Mindstab has suspend, not split second; 4 to 125 - TS bonus cards exist, not added in Development; 126 - Linessa is a legend; 127 - Vengeant is a planeswalker; 128 - Golden Lotus was fake; 129 - Only 3 Eldrazi Titans; 130 - Scars factions not equal; 131 - Besieged not split; 132 - Corrupted Conscience ; 133-137 - M12 Titans
    Anti-Crows - 5
    1 to 5 - The new card type introduced in Lorwyn will be Planeswalker.

    Yes..so my puzzles seem not hard enough Wink

    Brag Down 2B
    Sorcery
    Domain - target creature gets -x/-x, where x is the number of basic-land types you control.


    Is black meant to give -x/-x? when i think of black, i think of other things, before that..

    riddle is a bit too vague. but i think someone will get it.

    Okay, yeah it is Samite Archer then. I misread it and was thinking damage prevention (mostly Fog) was now off-color for G. So yeah, Samite Archer.

    Way too vague. But, guessing regardless...

    Here's what I've got:

    Jhessian Balmgiver 1GU
    Unblockable
    : Prevent the next 1 damage that would be dealt to target creature or player this turn.
    1/1

    Edit: P/T 1/1 not 2/2

    Jhessian Balmgiver 1WU

    T: Prevent the next 1 damage that would be dealt to target creature or player.
    1/1

    And the flavour text is something like:

    "You either stay here to be healed or listen to my advice in the battle"
