Creature - Frog Beast
Creatures blocking or blocked by Anurid Slateback get -3/-0.
Whenever Anurid Slateback is dealt combat damage, destroy it.
Covered with shell-like plates, they're surprisingly vulnerable to anything that can pierce through them.
3/4

I just discovered something that I designed 4-5 years ago! The card interprets "toughness" differently..
Neat!
This is one of your best cards.
Awesome! I like the way it hoses things like wither.

Not enough mathy-wathy mumbo-jumbo complicatery for me...

I like it!

I loved the Anurids back in the day, and not only does this bring back memories, but it does it in an interesting way. I like it. Even if it was designed years ago lol.

I'll admit that I like it quite a lot.
However, I wonder if it's all that different from:

Anurid Slateback
Creature - Frog Beast
Absorb 3
3/1

Aside from "looking" more blue.

This is more powerful against creatures with militance. Wait, is that the bankaimechanic that stops you from editing the creature's power and toughness or the one that stops it from ever leaving the battlefield for any reason even after the game is over.

Probably the bankaimechanic that makes you want to kill the designers. Just like the rest.

Sometimes the abilities you want for a narrow card like this are just slightly awkward to put into text, and that's not necessarily a bad thing.


which is why text should be as succinct as possible

it's subject to -1/-1 attacks unless those are also absorbed

Double Strike, multiple blockers, -1/-1 counters/debuffs. cats' version looks more difficult to kill during combat.
Actually, it's possible to replace "combat damage" with "damage" to make the card a lot more different from and much weaker than absorbing 3/1 creatures, but then it's hosed by lots of random cards..

Absorb prevents each instance of damage, so double strike and multiple blockers are handled about equally.

Originaly version is a bit more interesting when double-blocking.

also, burn spells.

 
120.6. Some effects replace card draws.

I'm feeling like dumb now. You're right.

It DOES look like absorb, but I feel the slight differences are worth it.
Nifty!

Make it mono-blue.



The reverse-deathtouch says green or black is here to stay.

what? green and black are the ones that have actual deathtouch, not give their opponents it.

It just seems weird to "give your opponent X" when you have it. I guess it could be blue, though, keeping with illusions.
