Wouldn't be allowed in modern expansions, because you can name "land". This is also strictly better than Ostracize and Encroach at the same time.

Oh - okay, not strictly better because the opponent can discard their least useful creature rather than their most useful one. Still a problem about land though.

The funny thing is, I was going to suggest what you thought the card was, Alex, since now that Despise exists, this card is kind of worse than both Despise and Duress. Though, I do appreciate how this card could be used to cover both categories, yes. So, it seems printable as is (minus the land thingy). And I must admit that while you could make the card equal to or possibly better than Duress, I'm not really sure if you should.

Yeah, I misread it too. If it's nonland, this seems about right after all. Sorry for misreading it, I like it quite a lot now!

And you have some choice -- you can often name "creature" and get something, but naming something else will sometimes be better. And it's a lot better if you have too of them, which is interesting.

Another templating quibble, if it's to do what I think, I think it should probably not have "up to one"? I think if it just says "one", then they have to discard one if they can, but if it says "up to one" they can always discard nothing?

Yeah, the templating needs to say "discards a card of the chosen type if able".

Heh, true. "Ok up to? I discard none of it. Done." The definition of a card better players get more advantage from (and know not to play)

Whoops! I don't know why I worded it like that.
