    Counterspell would push the staff into (minortoken)(minortoken). That seems quite high for staff which gives no card advantage.

    How about:

    Over-thinking (Human skill, (minortoken))

    Arcane Curse is hardly what I'd think about when it comes to big drawbacks so I don't think the design fits the guidelines myself. Sure, Arcane Curse annoying and can be a problem, but usually it's just a weak Zap, it's not something that causes you pause when it's drawn or something you'd want to take precautions for.

    You can raise the token count by one (making it level 17,5) by adding pulverizing bludgeon instead of clumsy chop.
    You keep your theme, and make an all out attacking weapon, worth of any berserker around.

    I disagree, you have to get rid of it one way or another. Forward Thinking actually makes it almost impossible to get rid of by discard, so there's anti-synergy there. And since FT is giving you advantage for the next round, you don't necessarily want to engage this round. So that makes it potentially harder to get rid of. There are certainly more devastating handicaps, but this one has to be worked with in some way, even if its just attacking an ally.

    I like that sword, no movement is a bit awkward with dropped guard, but 2 high level weapons should fix that.

    Arcane Curse is only on wizard items. 'cause it's not much of a handicap for warriors.

    That's weird. I thought I posted this the other day, but no, it's still in the little auto-saved draft thingy. Hm.

    @Founder: @tolkien makes the great point that every card on the sword deals with blocks except Sundering -- and Unnerving should keep the level the same, eh? (Of course, now, you've already posted with Unnerving, which is great.) I don't really get the name, though -- whereas Memory Stick (item and name) is thematic, fascinating, kinda funny, etc., despite Mind Worm being a Priest's card so far. $:^ J

    I'm open to ideas for better names. I was trying to think of a name which covered the fact that it's a laser-based sword which is hard to block but is hard to block with. I couldn't really think of a pun so I went with 'Phase Sword' because it's a sword which phases in and out (and is therefore hard to block / block with). Open to better ideas!

    It is a hybrid so in this case both a boost and handicap:
    Color Class: Boost, Handicap

    Obviously Tolkien's comment went over you head; he's clearly stating that even though it's officially a handicap, it's much more a benefit than a hindrance on any weapon. That said, quoting Flaxative's "I'm looking for items that are worth running but have a serious drawback", I'm positive that he won't be choosing ANY item with a Blind Rage as a winner. (unless there's also another much more debilitating handicap)

    Also, what's up with all the "illegal" cards in many of the designs? It's like most of you don't even want to have a chance of winning :rolleyes:

    Dont start trying to explain to me that you were talking about weapons and that my point about wizards having blind rage is not much of a hindrance etc etc

    Here is my original submission, but I'm going to change it for the reasons below:

    Decided to change it mainly due to Cowardly Attack not being on any items at the moment and Clumsy being only on a single item (boots). Figured having two cards that are basically never found would almost instantly disqualify it. Going to replace one Cowardly Attack with another Massive Chop (since that card is rare but could use more love). The theme is still the same (serial killer from a horror film uses this weapon) and probably doesn't fit as well as with a backstab-like attack, but yeah.

    New version:



    Thoughts?
