[game] You make the uninteresting card!

42 posts / 0 new
Last post
In the ymtc forum, almost all the cards are flashy and fun. But flashy cards are not the only cards in existence. Here are the requierments:


  • It must be a common or uncommon

  • It can't be special.

  • It can't suck

  • It should be draft/sealed oriented.

  • no new keywords.


tips:


  • Just because its uninteresting does not mean it can not be flavorfull

  • Dont make it to simple. There is a fine line.

  • Only evergreen keywords are suggested, but you are allowed to use others.

  • Vannilas are for the lazy and week. But they may still win.

Hey diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon. The little dog laughed to see such sport, And the Dish ran away with the Spoon. He ran from conviction, and fed his addiction as the Dish heated the Spoon... The Spoon begged to go, but the Dish shouted : "NO!!" "The heroin will be ready soon!"

Graveyard of the Ocean

: Add to your mana pool.
, Exile a Leviathan, Kraken, or Serpent card from your graveyard: Add to your mana pool for each in the exiled cards mana cost.



hmmmm, I don't know if this SUCKS, kinda depends on the set for sealed. 

1) Are we designing with a particular sealed or draft in mind? and
2) How many can we submit?

Until the end of turn, up to three target creatures you control gain battlecry.

Many Boros recruits become so, willing to fight, follow and lead. Much to their surprise, they aren't taught to fight, or to lead, or to follow; they are taught to stick together.
