I think you mean "destroy target ATTACKING creature" ... not quite as strong.

Quote from Guardman »So after thinking about it I think I have an idea of what the Food token is supposed to do. Food reverts a creature or artifact back to its original state.
Here is my thought process.
1. His ultimate is meant to be used to exchange Elks he creates.
2. Exchanging a creature or artifact you control for a creature an opponent controls is powerful, but with the power 3 or less restriction it is not especially useful, especially to just get a 3/3 Elk.
3. But using a Food token to undo a transformation after exchanging control of an object seems a lot more like an ultimate.
4. There is a lot of transforming, cursing, disguises, and glamours in Arthurian and Fairy Tales. I could see it being a theme. And every theme needs a way to interact with it and what better way to interact with it than being able to undo the transformation/curse/glamour/granny-pajamas. Hence food tokens.
