Daily Card Redesign #66: Entangling Vines

Daily Card Redesign is a daily Magic: The Gathering design exercise where I randomly choose a card for the scenario of it being killed late during its own set's development. I design a replacement card that uses the same art, is the same color, is the same rarity, and has a name that, alphabetically, keeps it within the same collector number for the set.


Huzzah! Yet another card that makes 0/1 green Plant creature tokens! There's only two other cards in all of Magic: The Gathering that makes these Plants. Instead of tapping a creature or saying that creature has become blocked or can't attack, green does this flavorful method of stopping a single creature from hitting you for a turn. 

And because the effect is so weak, I stapled on a cantrip. Perhaps if I came up with a name that implied that what's happening is the plant is holding down the creature for a temporary amount of time while you study the creature for just enough time to gain a bit of knowledge (drawing the card).


  1. I like that it's a cheaper version of Flash Foliage.

    1. For sure! But the trade-off is a useless Plant! Flash Foliage, however, can possibly kill some dudes!
