Further, there are actual situations where the size of a token matters.  If you animate Chaos Orb and make a token that's a copy of it, Cackling Counterpart for example, you can then use a pillow as the token to destroy the entire board.

I think this is too funny to have a rule stopping it.


It sounds hillarious and I want to try it now. 

I just need Tezz, the orb, Cackling Counterpart and some throw pillows...

@mikemearls The office is basically empty this week, which opens up all sorts of possibilities for low shenanigans

@mikemearls In essence, all those arguments I lost are being unlost. Won, if you will. We're doing it MY way, baby.

@biotech66 aren't you the boss anyway? isn't "DO IT OR I FIRE YOU!" still an option?

@mikemearls I think Perkins would throat punch me if I ever tried that. And I'd give him a glowing quarterly review for it.

Take the one that says "Counterspell This!" for added measure

That is hilarious! Especially for those of us who get it...
Oh man, they can't spread those perminants out far enough now.  Time to get some body pillows.
Doesn't Chaos orb have a several game radius of effect? What's the largest object you could throw?

Also, applying this to chaos confetti leads to some hilarious results, like forcing your opponent to blasphemy.
Check out my cube!

The correct object to use as a Chaos Orb token is an open pitcher of lemonade.
The best way to use chaos confetti, is to rip up all your opponents cards.
I'm pretty sure this came up on the judge's mailing list a while back. The list of acceptable token choices included things like index cards and coins. The list of unacceptable choices included kittens and iPads.

EDIT: It was from Cranial Insertion (A Rules Q&A by a handful of higher level judges)

Relevant quote:

Q: What can I use as a token copy for casting Heat Shimmer on a Xenic Poltergeist-ed Chaos Orb?

A: Anything that doesn't obstruct the playing area or interfere with the game. This is always a fun question to answer, so let's look at a few examples of each.

Good: Coins, playing cards, waffles, iPod Minis, ears.

Bad: Rai stone coins, kittens, Luftwaffe, iPads, kidneys.

But they keep returning to the battlefield too.

Funny story:
InQuest Magazine (I think it was InQuest) had an oversized Chaos Orb which I totally rooked someone into allowing into a (non-sanctioned) game.  
I had a proxy card that was a Mountain with "Chaos Orb" written on it. When I played it, my opponent cried foul:

Him: "WTF? a Proxy? no-one said anything about Proxies. Do you even own an actual Chaos Orb?" 
Me: "Yes, but I thought it would be better to use a Proxy."  
Him: "No way. If you're going to put a Chaos Orb in your deck you have to use your actual Chaos Orb."
Me: "*Sigh*. Okay."

I pulled out this huge Chaos Orb and placed it on the table. He tried to cry foul again but everyone else said he insisted I use my actual Chaos Orb and that was my actual Chaos Orb. I used it, flipped it and wiped most of his board. 

Unsurprisingly, that only worked once and only because everyone present thought it was hilarious.

No need to be so obtuse, maybe he's just trying to complement her. That's not too radical of a concept, I mean she is pretty acute, right?.
This right here should be a bannable offense :p
No, not an outright banning, that's too easy. He should be punished ... ... by degrees.

Does this trigger any 'leaves the battlefield' abilities?

It causes "Failure to Maintain Game State" penalties. The kitten receives a warning from the judge.

I know these are supposed to be silly examples... but I feel the need to point out....

What?  How can I use the German airforce as a token?  Were they just trying to flip a Chaos Orb token on to all of London's permanents during WWII?
