"Ah, the age-old conundrum. Defenders of a game are too blind to see it's broken, and critics are too idiotic to see that it isn't." - Brian McCormick
Doug. if you said that goblins could be omitted in Innistrad, and ditto for elves I suppose, why are there dragons in Innistrad?
This block has made a fan of devils out of me, I'm glad to see a little behind-the-scenes of them.I do wonder why they didn't just use imps as demon's peons like they usually do?
Doug. if you said that goblins could be omitted in Innistrad, and ditto for elves I suppose, why are there dragons in Innistrad? Couldn't they be left out too? I'm sensing a lil bias here (to dragon fans) but let's be fair. if you include angels, demons, wurms and dragons, where are the sphinxes/leviathians? what about Loch Ness???you would argue that sphinxes and leviathians are not suitable in this context but so would dragons too. you could have made a flying mythical devil for example. dragons are so overused and they all seem to work the same - firebreatheI would rather accept a ghost dragon, and that could actually fit the horror trope. it should be blue-based since it's a spirit
Besides, angels and demons are not that prevalent in gothic horror either. Innistrad is based on traditional medieval horror as well, so dragons make sense.
Devils sound a lot like gremlins.
Best guess: imps fly, and red weenies don't. Imps and demons are also very similar visually except for size -- imagine a child-sized demon that doesn't look like an imp -- so that's a novelty point in favor of devils.
But what's stopping me from just giving it a good old fashioned haymaker punch to the face... erhm... skull? After all, I decided to let my minions stand by and watch while I show them how it's done. I figured, in this sense, planeswalkers should have some way to deal damage themselves if they decide to let the attack through. And all players should have at least a 1-powered hit to represent the physical actions a planeswalker could do to attacking creatures, like a punch, a shield bash, or even an acidic spit in the eye! Hell, I'd love to get a kick in before getting pounded for 6 by a Skaab Goliath just for the heck of it. What do you think?
