    NAME IDEAS: "Frosttouch", "Freezing touch", "Frost strike", "Frost aura"

    Reference the updated Omnath, Locus of Mana wording for how to word mana retention.

    Lavatouch N (Whenever this creature deals damage to a creature, put N -1/-1 counters on that creature. Then add {r}. You don't lose this mana as steps and phases end.)

    Also note, as currently worded, this means that the creature is dealing both normal damage and N "wither" damage. Please design accordingly.
  • @Corwinnn, am I allowed to participate?
  • @Ranshi922 - Why would you not be?
  • IDK, that I had "experience" with Lavatouch?
  • You do seem a little "Lavatouched" today!
    Get it?
    Because you said...
    Oh...
    wait...
    If you have to explain the joke...
    Nevermind… Of course you can!

    @Faiths_Guide... better?
  • lqtm... It's funny bc I have only had one card with the Original lavatouch XD

    @Corwinnn
    If you're going to take the step to put "instead" (which I prefer), the wording could be cleaner:

    Lavatouch (This deals damage to creatures in the form of -1/-1 counters. Whenever it does, add {r}. You don't lose this mana as steps and phases end.)

    Now it is Wither with perks.
  • I like that! I went through a wither phase just before the phobia project so it seems fitting!

    And Root by @Credius, modified by @TheMechanix

    @Corwinnn
    Here's the revised N version for TheMechanix:
    Lavatouch N (If this would deal damage to a creature, you may add {r} and put N -1/-1 counters on that creature instead. You don't lose this mana as steps and phases end.)
  • Is that your version @Faiths_Guide?
  • @Corwinnn
    Personally I like the no-N version.
  • Cool. Tomigon gave me the other one that I posted. I'll leave it up to him which version he prefers.
  • @Corwinnn
    I think we can add all versions of lavatouch to the list and let participants decide which one to use!
  • Sounds like a wonderful idea, @Tomigon.

    Made with Lavatouch. After all, I do need to use my own mechanic more than once! XD

    I think this is a unique use of Blight by @LeviathanSoul...
