Card of the Day - Easy Target

This card has awkward rules text.  Is there an easier way to make the same effect happen?


  1. Enchant creature
    Each other creature gains "T: This creature fights with target creature enchanted by Easy Target"?

  2. Enchantment
    As Easy Target enters the battlefield, put a hunted counter on target creature.
    Each creature without hunted counters on it has "T: This creature fights target creature with a hunted counter on it."

    I don't think an aura can (or should) grant stuff to creatures other than the enchanted creature.

    1. With this version, the enchantment just sits around after the creature dies... I made it an aura so this wouldn't happen. Maybe if there were a way to produce hunted counters the card would be better in this form.

  3. how about this:
    Enchant creature
    Enchant creature has "O: tap an untapped creature you control. If you do, it fights enchanted creature. Any player may activate this ability."

    Very similar in function, though doesn't care about summoning sickness. It does keep the ability on the enchanted creature and is less wordy and more clear.
