He is Lord

He is Lord. Purple/Clay. Enhancement

Interrupt the battle. If a disciple is in battle you may reveal Son of God from your hand to return all evil Characters in battle back to their owner’s territories. Cannot be interrupted or negated.

Luke 8:13
And He said to them, “Go!” And they came out and went into the swine, and the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea and perished in the waters.  (This card is in reference to Legion recognizing Jesus' authority and Jesus casting the demons out of the man).

I havent played Redemption in a few years and am trying to come back into the game. So I don't know if there has been a card released like this since but I thought this card would be a cool idea.

Yes it can help win a battle. However it can only be used by a certain identifier, you give up information that Son of God is in your hand, and you are not being to mean to your opponent as non evil characters just go back to territory. Feel free to give feedback! Glad to be back!

You dont need to put inturrupted and negated on there. just negated CBN covers all now

If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don't love I am nothing.

This is a cool idea. I think conditional battle-winners are good for the game and help encourage variety in deck building. To clarify what thecoolguy mentioned, the ability could be worded this way and have the same effect: "Interrupt the battle. If a disciple is in battle, you may reveal Son of God from your hand to withdraw all Evil Characters. Cannot be negated."

I think the card is strong, just like any other ITB and remove all ECs from battle (Royal Parade is a similar one from the most recent set), although the restriction might be too limited to make it playable. Since once you draw it, you might have already played Son of God or you haven't been able to draw it yet. Although with The Second Coming being a new card from the Cloud of Witnesses set that can search discard pile for Son of God, maybe it would work well. And the disciples theme also has Disciples of the Lamb. A CBN interrupt and withdraw-all definitely shouldn't be unrestricted though, so that's a good start.

I think you meant to use Luke 8:33, not 13, which is actually the reference for a card already called Suicidal Swine Stampede. It's from the Disciples set which, from your other post, sounds like was the next set being released after you stopped playing. I don't know if there's necessarily any issue with using the same verse on a different card, but there might be other options for verses that would fit better. One option to stick with the same story could be to use verse 28 in which Legion calls Jesus "Son of the Most High God" (NIV). There are a couple other cards too that have similar themes that could potentially be reprinted as well. My Lord and My God is another card from the disciples set in reference to Thomas' confession that Jesus had actually risen and was standing in front of Him. You Are the Christ is a card from the I Starter Deck that references Peter's confession that Jesus is the Messiah in Matthew 16:16. Just some ideas for you to consider.
