    50 Cases of Multiversal Scrying.

    So, I've been seeing a lot of other people make these headcanon posts recently, and my brain just decided, "What the hay, why not." As my muse has had very little to do lately (through no fault of hers, I might add), she practically leapt on the opportunity and wouldn't leave me be (not that I don't like having her around, just that it gets ever so slightly frustrating when she's trying to bounce

    Still Alive

    Hey guys, or at least those of you that care enough to read this, just letting y'all know that I'm not dead, as I imagine none of you speculated. What happened was I got introduced to this webcomic called 'Homestuck' and really enjoyed reading it, hence this kinda fell to the wayside.

    Not much to say here. Just uploaded the first(not counting the prologue) chapter of Equestria: City of Guilds. Decided I'd give the three of you that follow me a 'sneak preview' of what is to come:
    Card of the Blog #1:
    Atzo, Legitimized Crusader 2BR
    Legendary Creature - Pony Crusader
    First strike, haste

    Returning from my short stay in Western Europe, I bring with me, along with the usual bollocks and an altered idiolect, potential stories that you might see sometime in the near future:
    -One that alters one thing that is integral to Equestria: the tribes.
    -One that brings a Timelord from our world into Equestria.
    -One that takes the ideas of Equestria and Ravnica, and fuses them.

Crusade — Whenever Atzo, Legitimized Crusader and at least two other creatures with crusade are attacking, attacking creatures get +2/+0 for each blocking creature.

Oh dear. You went and got my attention. And when you get my attention, I'm going to go digging through your posts. See what happens when you favorite my stories? :raritywink:

It's interesting to note that this card could theoretically be pure red. Given the setting, it comes as no surprise that it isn't, but still worth mentioning. Especially when, let's be honest, the card has bargain-basement battalion.

Unless you have a very compelling reason to make a new creature type, I'd recommend sticking with established ones. In this case, I'd say Warrior, which has plenty of support.

The crusade ability doesn't work as written for two different reasons:
Firstly, ability words are italicized because, as far as the rules are concerned, they aren't actually there, just like flavor text. As such, not even Atzo has crusade. It has an ability that's similar to those of other hypothetical cards, but the rules do not recognize that ability as one named "crusade."
Secondly, there's a minor but critical miswording. "Whenever" indicates a triggered ability, something that looks for a specific event or state and goes off like a spell. You want a conditional static ability, one that begins with "As long as". What's the difference? Well, the triggered ability would trigger and thus resolve during the declare attackers step. That is, before the declare blockers step. Thus, it would always count zero blocking creatures.

Let's fix this:

Atzo, Legitimized Crusader 3BR
Legendary Creature — Pony Warrior
First strike, haste
As long as Atzo, Legitimized Crusader and at least two other creatures are attacking, attacking creatures get +2/+0 for each blocking creature.
"No, I am NOT adorable!"
2/3

I upped the mana cost a bit to make up for widening the scope of the ability.

Now, just in case you've got anything else planned, I'm going to keep an eye on you. Just to be safe. :raritywink:
