False Prophecy

An idea I had from my pastor's sermon yesterday and fits well with a subtheme in the new set.

False Prophecy
TC Grey/Crimson EE
Place on your demon: If your evil prophet or heretic of the same testament as bearer is defeated, you may discard this to add bearer to battle. Cannot be interrupted if played in battle.
1 John 4:1 "Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world."

Perhaps not the direction that we want to bring the game (with more evil battle extension), but it seemed a natural idea from the standpoint that false prophecy has demonic origins. It in itself is not orange, so you not only need to have demons to play it on but a grey or crimson character to play it from. Orange has a bit of synergy with crimson and not much with grey, so that's a bit of opportunity cost right there. I also restricted it to same testament in an attempt to prevent just splashing Abaddon/Dragon/Gates into a deck with Balaam and the new grey prophets (although the revelation stuff still works with heretics and the grey stuff works with KoT and the new Terrifying Beast).
The longer everything goes to plan, the bigger the impending disaster.

I like it, and I personally think that more battle extension isn't bad, as long as it's defensive, not offensive.
It's the year of the Mighty men!

I'm inclined to agree, although the issue here is more that it's stacking it into one theme. This + Gates gives an orange splash two extensions, while most themes don't have any.

Maybe there's a different way to do it.

"Place on your heretic or evil prophet: At any time, you may discard an orange card from hand or territory to add this character to battle."
