Great multiplayer card for political games. You want to turn a skirmish between two of your opponents in your favor? This is your guy.

Alright card translation: Target blocking creature instead blocks an attacking creature of your choice. This ability can only be used during the blocking step.
Was that really so hard, Wizards? Really?

Sooooo many tricks with this card.

The obvious is to get your giant creature past a chump blocker, and if the opponent double chumps they're down an extra creature.

There are also cards that trigger on blocking or being blocked, or cards like smite that have targeting conditions.

Looking at the rulings shows another trick. Two of these can block three creatures. Have both block the same creature, then switch each to a different creature and the original remains blocked.



I also quite enjoy the wall of text. Seven lines of text, on an uncommon, really makes this card fit right in with the ice age cards cold snap was emulating.

and 4 mana for a 3/2 isn't entirely unplayable either. 3.5/5

I do not understand how this could possibly be confusing. Serious face, here. I once got one in a card lot and read it and instantly understood. I don't see why anyone is bitching about the rules text because you just have to understand what the words mean.

It's the "rules correct" way of switching over a blocker. A lot of the clauses are so that you can't have a creature double chump block two different creatures as the first would still be blocked if there weren't the clauses. Tut tut.

5/5

Basically, False Orders on legs.
