So I want Imaginary Numbers - but I can't have them, so I'll settle for Imaginary Creatures.

2/2

Rules for Imaginary Creatures - not formatted well and not finalized:

1. Spells and effects that don't target don't effect Imaginary Creatures.
2. Imaginary Creatures can not interact with combat.
3. Some more?

Thoughts and tips?

So it can't attack or block?

I don't get it.

Um, yeah. That's right. It can't attack or block, and you can't kill it via Wrath and the like.

Perhaps I should cut Two, and just keep one. Since there isn't a lot of interaction there. I just feel like it could just be a keyword, unless I give it some more rules, and I like the idea of Imaginary Creature as opposed to Creature with Imaginary.

Change to a keyword bro.

Imaginary (This creature assigns combat damage equal to the opposite of its power, and dies if it has damage equal to the opposite of its toughness or has non-negative toughness.)

Huh, from Storm Crow jokes? That's not Storm Crow, that's a creature that you're pumping with Grasp Of Darkness and that you're killing with Vines Of Vastwood..
If you want to get pedantic with the math aspect though, multiplying P/T by -1 gets applied before addition and subtraction, so it's functionally the same as having positive P/T to begin with...

That's cool, cats, but wouldn't imaginary be more a i/1.4142135...i?

I'm scraping this anyway, but out of curiosity, how would one represent that as a card?

Power or toughness change when it's tapped?  Multiplication by i is a 90-degree rotation in the complex plane...

I like this one. Kind of hard to really work as a mechanic though. COmbined with the even-odd power matters though, could be interesting,

Moriok Rigger is not a Rigger in print. Only in Errata WHAT NOW! (yes, I did put that phrase in for that exact reason)
Congratulations, they have activated your trap card!
Last night I had an idea. "They have tapping, flip cards, even double faced, but no turning counter clockwise?" I couldn't think of anything good though.

Q feels underappreciated.

Q is just reverse T, you know what I meant!
