    I've culled through the Card Ideas thread to find what I think are some legitimate ideas. (Warning: you'll see a disproportionate number of my ideas in the first post.) You're welcome to post new block card ideas here or at the old forum. I found we were repeating ourselves sometimes.

    Block. Silver Quality.
    Block Melee. Push Attacker Forward 2Fly. Turn to face attacker. unblockable

    Blackout block
    Type: hybrid block/drawback
    quality: tar
    item slot: shield/weapon/staff
    Block melee 4+. You discard a random card.

    Magnetic Block
    Block. Bronze+ quality
    Block magic. Block projectile 2+.
    If this card blocks magicPush 2the attacker.

    Feedback Block
    Block. Silver.
    Block any. Discard each card attached to attacker. 3+

    Cutlass Parry
    Paper+ quality
    Block melee. 2+
    Subtract 2 from your roll if the attacker is in your forward cone.

    Wary Block
    Silver quality
    Block any attack that would do damage to you. 3+

    Pommel Block
    Block. Tar Quality
    Block melee. 6+

    Backing Block
    Block. Silver- quality
    Block any. Move back 1. If you can't discard this card instead. Keep. 5+

    Mystic Stab
    Hybrid Block/Attack (Silver+)
    Damage 6 Range 2, Block Magic/Missile 3+
    (Weapon or Elf Skill, Attack/Block)

    Adaptive Block
    Block any (3+). When you block damage, create a new card that grants you immunity to the damage type of the attack and attach it to yourself.

    Weird Block
    Block. Paper quality
    Block any, 6+. If this card was not revealed, add 2 to the die roll.
    That was unexpected! But I'm ready now.

    Steadfast Shield
    Block any 4+
    You can block cards with Unblockable; if you block a card with unblockable, push back 2 the attacker.

    Human Shield
    Block, warrior card. Block Any (Roll 5+), swap places with and redirect the target of the card to a random adjacent enemy, this block can only trigger if there is an enemy adjacent to you that is not the attacker.

    Dragonflame Block
    Block. Silver+
    Block Any. 3+ Attach to attacker.Burning 2. Duration 2

    I don't think you are the best person to determine the best card ideas, also I don't like the branching off of the thread.

    Also, there is a disproportionate amount of blocks made by you, not to suggest any bias or anything. How about only pointing out others' good blocks?

    Maybe I'll rename the thread. I'm totally biased. I mostly wanted my (decent) ideas in an easy place to see so I don't repeat mine or others ideas.

    Caught up to page 80 on the card ideas thread. I think some of these might be viable.

    Obvious block

    Block any 5+. Blocks in your hand are visible to opponents.

    Ball and chain
    Block any 6+ Keep
    Encumber 1

    Vicious Dodge
    Block Projectile/ Magic
    If this card blocks an attack deal 4 damage to each {characters in} adjacent squares. 4+

    Stalwart Block
    Block any, 3+. If the roll is 5 or above, this block gains Keep.
    Note: Inspired by Hold the Line! by @WexMajor - I guess that the two could be even combined.

    Shield Bash:
    Block Melee. Attacker takes 5 crushing damage. Slide Back the attacker 1. 2+
    4 damage. Slide Back 1. (this is buffed by bruiser and bash)
    Suggested as a Bronze+(4, C+) card.
    Attack, Block. Melee, Crushing.

    Imperfect Block
    Block any. You discard a random card, then your opponent draws a card.

    War Cape
    Heavy Armor only
    Hybrid block/boost
    Block 6+
    Melee Frenzy 1

    Premeditated Block
    Bronze Quality
    Block any. 5+. Add 1 to the die roll for each card in hand.

    Shield Bash (alternative)
    Hybrid block/attack
    Block any 2+. Take 5 crushing damage.

    Range 1. Damage 5. Melee crushing. Slide back 1.

  9. Is this supposed to deal damage to the blocker when it stops an attack?

    Yes, I should have said, 'you take 5 crushing damage.' cf. Jarring Block

    I just noticed that cushioning armor basically functions like a block with high damage attacks.
    I love cards that are usable but force decisions and can be risky.

    Something I wrote for an old April Fool's joke...

    Still, I never did dislike the repeatable Block mechanic I invented to make that Black Lotus parody work. To rework it a tad:

    Vigilant Interrupt
    Rare, Gold+
    Block (roll 3+)

    Block Any. Attach this card to yourself. Duration 1. At the start of each round, return this card to your hand.

    "Stay sharp. An ancient magic is gathering..." - Svitlana, Warden of the Forest

    I think I'm satisfied with the new level of obscure MTG parody alluded to in its title, hinted at in its flavor. $¦^ J
