tfw they introduce an evergreen keyword out of nowhere, in the one set you skipped, and it works the opposite of how you expect from evergreen keywords

that unless clause in the Ward flavortext is really throwing my brain for a loop and I'm kinda feeling alone in being confused by it


update: in response to being reminded that menace is equally confusing, I'm trying to reframe Ward the way I think about menace

Menace reminder text: this creature can't be blocked except by two or more creatures

How I remember menace: if this creature is blocked, it must be multiblocked

Ward reminder text: When this becomes the target of a spell/ability, counter it unless its controller pays X

How I'll remember ward: anything that targets this creature costs X more.

uncounterable spells are an edge case I'm happy to leave out of my mental quick reference
