New Miraculous Event Identifier

Something that I've wanted to see for a while is a focus on the miracles in the Bible.  A lot of these miracles certainly have good representations in the game already, but there is nothing that makes them different than other cards in the game and thus the collective significance of these events is not captured very well in the game.  To solve this problem, I propose the Miraculous Event identifier.  Current cards for Miraculous Events would gain this identifier retroactively and new cards would, of course, be printed with this new identifier.  New cards could be printed that would enable a player to search for a Miraculous Event or play a Miraculous Event regardless of brigade and so on.  These events are incredibly significant and powerful suspensions of natural laws, and they deserve special recognition in the game.  This new identifier can give them that recognition.

An example of a card that targets this identifier could be as follows:

An example of a Miraculous Event itself could be as follows:

Those seems pretty cool and I think that could definitely fit as a new identifier. Any reason for it to be "Miraculous Event" rather than just "Miracle"? Identifier space has to be highly optimized in Redemption these days. :P

a "Miracles" mechanic is already used by some other game...  :D

Not that that would stop Redemption from using it but, couldn't it just be represented by a symbol like is done with stars and clouds, and differentiating abilities on dual cards etc?

Honestly, if we did miracles we would probably put that it was a miracle in the identifier and if we use a search for one, or something like that, you just say miracle in the ability.  Miracles in MTG are star abilities, so that might get confusing for new Redemption players, but miracles are a thing Jesus and others did not an ability type, so that would be the major difference.

I agree it should be miracle. But those are great cards!
If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don't love I am nothing.

Yeah, calling it just "miracle" does make more sense.
