This is a [Created Card]

This is a [Created Card]

Lithmono Monolith: colorless Artifact [6]
If you only control characters from one fraction, all your deployed characters, gain +1/+1. Pay 12 and exile 2 cards: your opponent loses 100 Health and 100 morale. your opponent can pay 10: destroy this card.

Your thoughts?

The way priority works, it is close to a free win if done properly (and you manage to defend, of course).

1. Play this artifact on opponent's priority (after ramping to 12 resources)

2. Next turn activate the ability. (I assume exile in this case means remove from game)

3. Even if your opponent pays the 10 resources to destroy the card, the 100 hp and 100 morale loss comes first due to priority.

4. Profit

Perhaps wreckful walrus or a luckily-timed growth can destroy this. Aside from that, it can be an instant win condition.

Could make it so the opponent destroying it is a start of turn effect like paying for cards such as Shikana, Bomb-bot or (most relevantly) Vasir. That should make it so that paying to destroy the card goes before activating its ability regardless of who has initiative.

Then you have the other side of the coin of the opponent spending an entire turn to counter the card, only for the opponent to instead pump out a bunch of characters/abilities, and who wouldn't spend the 10 to destroy it when the opponent happens to have 12 resources? It'd be an insurmountable risk of losing to leave it standing, and the one using it could easily capitalize on that.
Just so you guys know, if you're ever vs WWK, just start putting out random numbers and mathematical symbols, he will surrender.

I dont get what the point of the second ability is. Seem like just a broken win condition.

Now the first part is kinda interesting. Maybe buff it to +2/+2. Would it work with hybrids?
