So, it turns out I'm lucky enough to win a contest. The concept of the contest was to design a mechanic that works best in the Red Zone. I'm currently trying to make a mechanic for each of the ten guilds, and this was the perfect opportunity to create a mechanic for the most Red Zone-y of the guilds - the Gruul.
I wanted something simple, powerful, and resonant. Something that has an easy trigger, and is useful on creatures. Here's what I came up with:
Enrage (Whenever this creature is blocked, put a +1/+1 counter on it.)
Very simple. Very resonant of what the Gruul are about. Potentially very powerful.
Here's the simplest version of Enrage.
This week, we'll be exploring what we can do with this simple but powerful mechanic.
