I never liked the shield mechanic. Just putting that out there

Barrier X- If this character were to take damage instead deduct that damage from the Barrier amount. If the Barrier amount is less than or equal to 0, remove it from this card.

So if a 4/2 with Barrier 1 were to take 10 damage, it would survive with 4/2 but the barrier would be removed.

A card can have multiple barriers, the first one placed will have its effect first. Adding barriers does not increase X.

So: 4/2 with Barrier 1.

-Add Barrier 2.

-It becomes 4/2 with Barrier 1, Barrier 2 [NOT Barrier 3]

-Takes 10 damage

-Becomes 4/2 with Barrier 2

-Takes 1 damage

-Becomes 4/2 with Barrier 1

-Takes 10 damage

-Becomes 4/2
