If you can come up with your own MTG card mechanic, what would it be called and what effect does it bring? Does it align to only a few of the colors? Does it align with only a few creatures? Is it similar to a pr-existing mechanic? You decide As for me, my mechanic is... Frost (creatures dealt damage by this creature get an Ice counter. A permanent does not untap during their controller's untap step unless their controller pays for each Ice counter on that permanent) It will align strongly with but also and and is for a new creature of Ice Elementals. This ability is solely used to slow down the opponent and will even have non-creature spells that will either move or place down Ice Counters.
