Hello MTGCS community.
First off I didn't know whether to put this is Custom Card Discussion or Off-topic Chat, so if this is wrong, I'm happy to change the location.
I'm looking for a bit of help/pointers on the wording on a custom card I'm working on. It's likely I could dig around the internet and find the answer myself but I'd rather ask the community and be sure.
The current iteration of the ability reads:
"At the beginning of your upkeep, target opponent loses 1 life for each life you have above your starting life total."
I've also considered:
"At the beginning of your upkeep, target opponent loses life equal to the amount of life you have above your starting life total."
But they both sound wrong and wordy in my head.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you :)
