Um... I think that'd be an illegal block and thus impossible... Rules guru, someone help.

"Wait a minute. Somethings wrong here. You see this text?"
"Yeah, I see it.... We don't use the word 'blocked' much anymore. We better change those two instances to 'was blocking'."
"Good call. That could have just been confusing."

But seriously, the goal is that you can veto one of the defending player's blocking assignments. That creature still blocks something else (your call) and if whatever it was originally blocking is the only valid choice, you have to let it go right back to blocking that guy. But 90% of the time, you get to say, "No, I think your 1/1 would be better off not blocking my 8/8. Here, he can block my 2/2 instead. Oh look, you're both dead."

edit: I also love how I managed to type out almost exactly the same example before I read DoctorKenneth's comment.

This card is probably an intentional reference to the super-confusing cards of yesteryear. Probably.

@Wormfang: "I wait until the combat damage step, then cast two giant growths on this guy."

this is awesome against green

Opp: I swing with 2 grizzly bears

Me: I block one

Opp: ok, *taps 2 green* 2x giant growth on the other

Me: "taps warlord" reallocates chump to other grizzly

I take 2 dam he wastes 2 giant growths, WIN

If you don't want to bother deciphering the card text, just use this rule of thumb: if it's from Coldsnap, it's, more likely than not, not worth your attention.

Yo dawg, I herd you like blocking...

Put it like this: Say an opponent blocks a creature you attack with. You can tap this to make that blocker block another attacking creature. Unless the first blocked creature was blocked by multiple creatures, there is now no blocker on that creature and its attack goes through.
