New card type: Plant

Hey, we have animals, why not plants?   ;)  Plants would use the Seed mechanic, which is my name for a counters mechanic.  This mechanic doesn't have to be unique to Plants though.

It's simple:  The identifier line will have Seed +X, which means that the card enters play with X Seed counters on it.  It will have abilities that have a cost of increasing the Seed counters (notated as Seed +X), or more likely, decreasing the Seed counters (notated as Seed -X).  These can be used at any time, which is why Seed +X abilities need to have a negative effect to the user.

They may also have ongoing abilities, which will usually increase or decrease the Seed counters passively (as seen below).

The Great Oak
Plant
Identifiers:  Seed +3
"Seed -6:  Discard a human in a territory or a captured human.
When a human is withdrawn, Reserved, or enters a deck, you may capture it instead and Seed +l (limit once per round)."
II Samuel 18:9

The Tree of Life
Plant
Identifiers:  Seed +4
"Seed -3:  Heal a hero.
Seed -12:  Rescue a Lost Soul.
When you attack with a Revelation hero, Seed +l (limit once per turn)."
Revelations 22:2

I really like this mechanic! What would the Icon be? Something brand new, or would you reuse an existing icon?
Some call me "Goofus"

It would be brand new.  Like a Fortress or Site.  You just play it and it becomes active.

Worm isn't even tournament legal yet and we already need a reprint so we have a way to get rid of these new planeswalkers plants ::)

It's a really interesting idea, although I think that in its current state Great Oak is maybe a little too good with Raider's Camp.[EDIT: I forgot a detail on RC, as Justin points out below]

The longer everything goes to plan, the bigger the impending disaster.

I think that’s a cool idea (the card type and counter). Honestly, I like it better than the star abilities. 😆

Raider's Camp specifies that a human must be doing the capturing...plant capturing would be excluded... ::)

I think it would be cool to also have these played when drawn like LSs.

Maybe draw a replacement, maybe not...but they hit the table immediately. For one, they would start working right away. Two, there could be some strategy and/or draw back as “board advantage” gets used more.

Hey if this becomes a thing there can be a dominant that specifically discards plants, like a DoN but for plants. It can be called ROUND-UP! A side effect of the discard can be if there are any humans in your territory they all get poisoned and decrease 0/3 per upkeep, so you’d want to play it with a non-humans offense/defense. 😁
