well I've been detained for being "off topic" so I'm creating this thread

the angler wants the posters to feel free to pirate this thread

I'm just going to talk mostly about card creation here (it's the sub forum)

The topic of this forum shall be that it has no topic
under the sun under the water atop the cooling crust, the water life wurm swirled crashing upon empty shores

Scattering seeds onto the shore for countless years, which took root and the land wurm emerged.

Sea lion cannot attack if defending player has no islands.
If Sea Lion eats (does enough damage to a creature to kill it) that creature cannot be regenerated and draw a card.

There are decks where spending turn 4 to get an awesome turn five is a good thing.

Actually, you need to play more EDH - It's quite good in a 1-of format.
Won a TPmanW contest with Demonic Arbitrator. (see below) My username is a simple continued fraction. Look it up. My favorite cards I've made:
Show
Æther Rider Creatuere - Spirit (U) Vanishing 0 (This permanent enters the battlefield with zero time counters on it. At the beginning of your upkeep, remove a time counter from it. When the last is removed, sacrifice it.) Flying : Put a time counter on ~. Any player may activate this ability. It comes on the wind, from realms unknown. 2/2 Kaldurian Behemoth Creature - Beast (R) Mana produced by lands may not be used to pay ~'s mana cost. Trample On Kalduria, the beasts are too good to eat common grass. 10/10 Demonic Arbitrator Sorcery Starting with you, each player may pay any amount of life. If any player paid life, repeat this process. If a player paid more life in total than any other, that player searches his or her library for a card and puts that card into his or her hand. Then that player shuffles his or her library. "Your sacrifice has been judged worthy. What power do you require?"

LOL for a number of reasons.

*Most of us would use +1/+1 counters.
*It's a 0/0 if you miss the first one. While Quetzalcoatl is the Aztec god of gambling, his price is the same as Rushwood Elemental for what will half the time be a 0/0, one-quarter of the time a 3/3, one-eighth the time a 6/6...
*Why no flying? Is this a North American thing? Flyers that really don't fly?

if you don't, your opponent(s) invent a card and Unlimited Imagination becomes a copy of that card.

I figured  the hippo was based off keyword ability

here are some key words I would change

lag(this remains tapped during its next untap )
opposed (the creatures that are blocking this creature)
unopposed (this creature is attacking and has not been blocked after blocking was declared)
deck(library)
mana count (converted mana cost)
SorceCast (use this ability until during your main phase and not in response to any other action)

Not sure we should introduce Impressionists to the mix, though. I mean, that'll lead to Post-Impressionism, and before you know it we're right back where we started.

Welcome to Kevin's world. I'm pretty sure Quetzalcoatl would be closer to red. He's associated with gambling, supposedly a good lover, and, oh yeah, while the other Aztec gods eat human hearts, he falls into Stephenie Meyer's conception of vegetarianism, meaning he doesn't eat people.

(Also, "Kevin is hot in the ass?" Seriously?)


I have family that in the 50s were part of an anti-art movement, mostly because Studio Style (ghostly 2D drawings with thick outlines) was the definition of what Sontag would later call "fascist art".


Anyway, let's keep making art history references. Karte ist tot!

Untap Upkeep instant
Take an extra-uptap step after your upkeep.

(The untap step normally ocures the first step of a player's beganing phase
  followed by the upkeep steap then the draw step.
A player untaps all their permenants unless otherwise stated.
The untapping happens simultaniously.
No other player may respond to the untapping. )

Paradox Haze

why at the beginning ?

Target players takes an additional upkeep step after his her upkeep step.

The upkeep step normally occurs during a player's beginning phase
 after the untap step and before drawing.
Upkeep costs must be paid before their abilities can be activated.
Effects that trigger during upkeep.
The active play decides the order of these effects.
Other players may respond with instant spells and abilities.

I never considered dark ritual to be that powerful. But it is certainly good enough to count as a playable 1 drop

Dark Ritual

This is not a 1 drop , it is a blanket patch

Does DNA helix rotate clockwise or counter clockwise?



DNA is right-handed, meaning that if you were to see which direction it rotates as it moves away from you, it would be clockwise. Choosing clockwise or counter-clockwise is misleading though, since if you were to look at it from the top, it looks counter-clockwise. It's best to think about it as a vertical strand. If a DNA model were in front of you, and you grabbed it with your right hand (hence, right-handed, above), it would turn in the direction your fingers are pointing.

This thread is like a black hole crossed with a gorgon. Once you behold its face you are transfixed and there is no escape.

Like, the above metaphor, for example, is total gibberish. But before the glory of Yawgmoth Kevin and Matt, even this makes sense.
