Saw a new Terry Brooks book was coming out and got me to thinking some ideas for some Elfstones XD

Blue Elfstones
at a cost of 5 Resource and 3 or 4 magic cost -
search library for any magic using card and deploy/use it for free.

Crimson Elfstones

Destroy enemy creature and heal your hero Half of that creatures remaining health

Emerald Elfstones ???

The mechanic of searching your library for magic already exists in a few cards. The idea of destroying an enemy creature for health is novel to the game, but there are less expensive ways to heal your hero already in the game. Of course you want to sack the largest enemy creature you can, and some enemy creatures might have 8 or 9 health... Also of course you'd be destroying your opponents best creature (in most cases) so it shouldn't be a cheap card... I'm thinking it should be more like 5 Resources, 6 Magic, and 3 Destiny, destroy target creature and gain health equal to its remaining health (not half).

Also, I'm not sure I like the name Elfstones. Especially if they're what they're called in Terry Brook's books.
