War Tax

War Tax {2}{U}

{X}{U}: This turn, creatures can't attack unless their controller pays {X} for each attacking creature they control.
The worst thing about being a depraved pirate is having to work with a bunch of depraved pirates.
  • 2004-10-04 The ability only applies to attackers declared after it resolves. It will not add costs to any attackers already announced.
  • 2004-10-04 You can choose X=0. This doesn't have an effect most of the time, but it does mean that creatures can't attack unless the controller chooses to pay the cost (a cost of zero is not automatically paid, so the controller can choose to not pay).
  • 2007-02-01 In the Two-Headed Giant format, you still only have to pay once per creature.
  • Mercadian Masques (uncommon)
