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.
