Category for Escape

Escape is a keyword shared between each of the 5 monocolored civilizations.

However, it is primarily featured in the Light Civilization.

Details

It is a destruction substitution ability that puts one of your shields to your hand in order to keep your creature in the battle zone.

This ability is based on the effect of Pure Unicorn (and later, Javeleon, Beast Lance).

It can be combined with cards that add additional shields to continue protecting your creature.

As power decreasing effects generally last until the end of the turn, it would continually destroy the creature as a state-based action regardless of how many shields the creature's owner returns to his hand.

While it can't be used with the Shield Trigger Shield trigger keyword, it can be paired with Strike Back.

It has a variant, True Escape.
