The Simic Labratory - DNA Splicer [Contest]

528 posts / 0 new
Last post
GM_Champion's thread is likely dead (he mentioned that he might pass it to someone else anyways) but I thought it was a very interesting idea so I would like to keep it going since I think the various random creature type combination could make for some very interesting cards.

I have never held a contest before so I have no idea how well I might judge it, but I am willing to try!
For the record, flavor is one of the things that tickles my fancy more than anything else.  I'm not saying that any judging I might do will be affected by my personal prejudices.

Rounds will last about 24 hours at most to keep it moving.  Anyone can play whenever they feel like it.  Come and go as you see fit.  You are completing for props, bragging rights and maybe a title or two.

On to the gene splicing! 

Your first assignment as the co-op intern in the lab is to splice:

ELEPHANT + RAT

So it did, so it did.  Pure coincidence this time around as my process of creature type selection is a secret blend of special algorythms that concern hitting "random card" on gatherer until I get two creature types.

That being said, I might have to include a playtpus bear in the future, or maybe a turtle duck.

I've always wanted Vivisection to be a real card to fear. Also anything that is fueled by Polymorph or Beast Within makes me happy.

ok Closed so I can actually conceivably grade these today.

Wynzerman, this round was  to focus on a splicing of Elephant and Rat.  I like your card, but for this round I'll have to disqualify it based on the criteria.

Feel free to post a new card if I haven't posted any comments yet.

EDIT: I just realized a serious problem.  The mana cost symbols are broken for me so I can't actually tell in some cases what people have costed their cards at.  If I hover over I *sometimes* can see the text for the symbol.  I only have this problem at work for some reason. At home I have no issues...anyone have any idea whats wrong?

All comments are subject to my own prejudices, life experiences, and current mood. I'll comment on each one as well as give a grade out of 10, since I like that stuff when I post cards. I tend to under cost cards myself


Elephantine Rodent

Whenever Elephantine Rodent deals combat damage to a player, you may pay . If you do, that player discards a card.


The diet to foster disease, the body to push it through.


4/3


Now find a way to give him double strike.



Thats a magic rat and a magic elephant, no denying. I like that it hits on all the basics. It's well costed, its got great flavor text. This card is highly printable as well. At the cost, I think it you might have been able to do away with the having to pay for discard, but it is in keeping with the Rat Code. Of course, the Rat Code is more of a guideline than a rule.


8/10


Plague Pachyderm

Creature-Elephant Rat
When Plague Pachyderm enters the battlefield, sacrifice it unless you discard a card.
The Simic are known to engineer problems exclusively to the annoyance of people who have slighted them.

I'd have to say this card is overpowered. The decks that would play this monster would only use the drawback as a huge positive. I mean, I like the card, but who wouldn't? Love the flavor text and the flavor all round. Just too darn good. Wouldn't it be arguably one of the best one drops ever printed?


6/10



Plagued Pack-Aderm Virulent Elerrat

Whenever a non-token creature dies you may discard a card. If you do, put a token onto the battlefield that's a copy of Plagued Pack-Aderm Virulent Elerrat.

Well costed, strong card. Very printable. I can think of at least 4 decks of mine that would kill for this card. The flavor text makes me chuckle everytime I read it. One of my favorites so far.


9/10


Relephantless Rats
Creature - Rat Elephant
Trample
Spells called ~ that you cast cost less for each creature named ~ you control.
A deck can have any number of cards named ~.
3/3


This card needs to be printed NOW. It captures the flavor and playability of both rat and elephant (herd mentality) perfectly. I'll give it a 10/10 even though I love me some flavor text. The name is great too. My inner Simic is weeping with joy at this success.


10/10



Brain Mole creature elephant rat
Whenever Brain Mole damages a player, that player discards a card
"~it's much larger than most rats" - Wizard of the Seven Eyes
1/1


But..the name isn't a snappy elephant/rat cross/allusion. Its very safely costed with an effect that is tried and true. Flavor text is about the same.


5/10


Reoccurring Ratodon B/G B/G 3 Creature Rat Elephant You may cast Reoccurring Ratodon from your graveyard. 4/4 No matter how many times the Simic attempted to eradicate the wayward experiment, it managed to keep coming back.


This is a fine general idea for just about any experiment instead of specifically a rat/elephant. It's not a bad card, it just doesn't seem like a rat elephant.


6/10


Elephrat |
Creature -- Elephant Rat (U)
Trample
Whenever Elephrat becomes untapped, return it to its owners hand.
The most common defensive strategy is getting it to look at its own shadow.
3/2


A fun card that makes my inner Johnny start churning. I'd say it appeals to spike as well. Rides the edge of too strong since it is so easy to cast again, especially in green, fits in at least 3 of my decks. Plus it answers AzureShades question of what would an elephant rat be afraid of.


9/10


Luxodon Recruit
Creature - Elephant Rat Horror
If was spent to cast ~, it enters the battlefield with a +1/+1 counter on it and has vigilance.
If was spen to cast ~, it enters the battlefield with a +1/+1 counter on it and has trample.

Good card. It's not particularily ratty or elepanty (don't look that up, I just coined it.) however it does feel like an experiment and captures the flavor of splicing and mixing different ingredients to get something new.


7/10


Pygmy Tuskrat ()

Definitely feeling the rat here. I like the herd mentality flavor with the +1/+1 counters as well. It's a good card with excellent flavor text.


8/10


Pachyrodent
Creature - Elephant Rat
Whenever ~ attacks, you may sacrifice a Swamp or Forest. If you do, put a token onto the battlefield that is a copy of ~.
"They're like a blight of locusts. Except they're rats... and elephants."
3/3


Definitely feeling the elephant on this card. Its easy to picture a herd of elephants crashing through some woods, which in reality would like never happen, although reality doesn't have Pachyrodents. But maybe it should. Might have to pull out the chemistry set and start taking some samples from whoever happens to be sleeping tonight. Possibly a blend of wife + sexy neighbor...hmm...that might be illegal...if I don't grade tomorrow you'll know why...unless I can get computer access from prison.

Many of the simic creations require precision timing, and accurate data collection upon years of study to become elegant mutants. Others, not so much.

Good mechanical combination of rat and elephant abilities. If this card hasn't been printed yet it really needs to be. It's not flashy at all but it makes perfect sense. I would say the Simic would consider this a success.

Perfect originality is overrated and often ugly. The best and most beautiful cards I've ever seen were clearly inspired by something else. Cards are not entirely unlike living organisms in this regard. All the good ones are a result of long evolution; the 'original' ones are either monocellular or mutant aberrations.

The weird part is reaching over the table, grabbing a card from their hand, and just staring slowly back at them, awkwardly, as you slide their voice of resurgence slowly into your pants.

Graveborn are strictly better than Zombies. I mean, look at that wicked beard. You try growing that when your dead. And I know aging fellows who are suffering from Male Pattern Baldness, who would kill for a Mop like Ribsy's over there.

Sabertooth Dragon
Creature - Dragon Cat 
Flying, lifelink
When ~ enters the battlefield it deals 3 damage to each creature target opponent conrols. You gain life equal to the amount of damage dealt this way.
5/5
Experiment Zero
Legendary Creature- Dragon Cat
Flying, haste, lifelink, trample
Commissioned in secrecy by the Boros War Council, it would have been considered a failure...had there been any survivors.
4/4
Charmed Nekoru 
Creature - Cat Dragon Monk
Whenever you cast a spell, choose one -
~ gets +2/+0 until end of turn;
~ gains lifelink until end of turn;
~ gains first strike until end of turn.
