Works for very defensive decks... except against exalted...

I was waiting for a better version of Caltrops to pop up. This thing can be very handy - especially against token decks.

Ohhh this would go really great with Godhead of Awe in play! Solid 4/5

Quick question... Would this work good with nacatl war-pride or... would it pretty much kill all of the tokens and the original?

@ __Silence__:

As long as you didn't attack with 3 or more creatures including Nacatl War-Pride, Lightmine Field will not deal the lethal 3 damage to each creature named Nacatl War Pride, given that you put Lightmine's effect on the stack above the token generation. Lightmine resolves, pinging all your attackers, and then tokens get put into play tapped and attacking (an action that thankfully doesn't trigger Lightmine all over again).

Combos very nicely with Rage Nimbus. If your opponent sees this and suddenly becomes more cautious, you can force a lot of his creatures (or all of them, depending on how many he has and how much mana you have) to attack. Even if Lightmine Field doesn't kill all of his attackers, at least they'll be softened up for your blockers, or you can Smite them. Take that, Elves! You also might consider using other red creature-control cards as well, such as Traitorous Instinct, Act of Treason and Conquering Manticore.

This plus leyline of sanctity plus asceticism pretty much makes you untouchable. I play it in a defender deck, Im a fortress. hoses everything im worried about, mainly token swarms that I can't stop and infect, cuz walls cant do anything but die to infect creatures. Enjoy spending the rest of the game ramping up to genesis waving for 26 and dropping the three legendary eldrazi.

Combos beautifully with Siren's Call in a U/W control deck.

One thing I still struggle with is when effects are redundant or cumulative. If I have two Lightmine Fields on the battlefield and one creature attacks, does that creature take one damage or two?

stupid question- is the damage dealt to the creatures before blockers are declared?
