Flavor Text Challenge (Ongoing)

I really enjoyed the "Flavor Text Challenge" by @ImBadAtBalancing. But he is not active recently, and the thread was closed. So I decided to do the same challenge myself.

What we do here is the exact same thing, so I'll just copy @ImBadAtBalancing's comment.

"You'll make a card based off of / including the flavor of the previous entrants that is included with their comment/reply to this. Then you'll add flavor text of your own that you want the next person to do! It works within itself :)

If someone already made a card for the line you've been working on, you can still share it no worries! At the very least you must give two lines of flavor text, that way it gives at least a little more freedom. "

If you don't know how this goes, check out the original thread: http://forums.mtgcardsmith.com/discussion/727/flavor-text-challenge/p1




I'll start off with these two flavor texts-

"We're not losing you. We're just passing you on to something greater."

"All shall love me and despair."

    Chosen Flavor Text: "We're not losing you. We're just passing you on to something greater."

    New Flavor Text: (Source: 1 & 2, *Undertale Spoilers*)
    1) "I made it out", may be misleading. A wrong direction with a new addiction, has got me not breathing!
    2) "I exist outside it. Even if restarted, your actions won't erase."

    1."If you don't know who i am, then maybe your best course would be to tread lightly."

    2."Even the smallest person may change the course of the future."
  • Lol @djayhero, I think you were meant to use the full flavor text-

    -"I made it out", may be misleading. A wrong direction with a new addiction, has got me not breathing!-

    But I guess the card reflects the full flavor text... so, yay!

    1. "Where do you think YOU'RE going?"
    2. "I wonder how long it will take you to bleed to death."
    3. (Because that second one's pretty morbid) "The spell goes something like...Whoops."
  • I also created this card with "All shall love me and despair." before I checked out the other discussion to figure out how it works.

    Yeah, that happens sometimes, but it's ok! Thanks for the card!
    I really like the Siren. Very clever idea! I think it should be legendary though. Also that mana cost uses gold border, just fyi:)

    I'm calling the card after @22cjohnson. We've got amazing art, waiting for just this! XD

    I saw this and I had to use it - My grandma always said "slow and steady wins the race." She died in a fire.

    To bring balance I will make one for the actual next flavor text as well.

    "The only time to give up is when you die...or when you get lost in your own mind."

    Two new quotes

    "They will get themselves killed or die trying."

    When I saw "Only the frail prevail, for no one thinks us a threat" I knew I needed to make a card based on the anime No Game No Life, because that is a central tenant of the show and multiple characters make very similar statements.

    The new quotes are;

    1. "To be sure, love can kill, but always remember, hate can never save."
    2. "Fear is Freedom! Control is Liberty! Contradiction is Truth! That is the reality of this world!" 

    And yes, one of those is a repeat from my previous post that wasn't chosen. ^_^

    @RayearthIX ...I choose you! (wacks him with a pokeball!)

    I used this quote... "Fear is Freedom! Control is Liberty! Contradiction is Truth! That is the reality of this world!"

    New Quotes

    "So much for that theory..."

    "There's no way anyone could ever be that stupid!"







  • @lastjustice

    (rub my head) Like, ouch man. Honestly now, who throws a pokeball! ... ... Oh, right.

    And good concept with that card, especially by making it disappear on its own. One thing to consider though is that if played in an America deck, all your lands still produce the colors needed for the rwu color scheme. Only change I'd make is to ensure that at least one of the colors for that deck are removed as well.

    Quotes:

    "And why did you think i would care?"

    "Perspective turns evil to good, compassion to treachery, and brilliance into Impulsivness."

    @RayearthIX

    As I admitted in the comments for the card, I based it off reality twist. http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=2530 It normally didn't mess with Islands being a mono blue card, it just had a stupid Cumulative upkeep of 1UU that made it impractical keep up for more than a turn or 2. I copied the text box, and added Islands to the colors to hinders, but made so it still allowed the person to set the trap to be potentially ok keeping the flavor of the original. I gave it fading so it still ends at some point, but it slows a game down for a time. (Unless no one is playing basic lands, then it does nothing but draw a card much later.)

    As for "So much for that theory..." I heard it said, but was a thing that stuck with me when I was playing Soul Calibur 3 years ago. As Siegfried I beat the last boss for the first time playing thru the story mode, he says," I avoided your vitals, you'll live."...Then the boss explodes..LOL. I was like so much for that theory.

    That way you can show the card in thread.

    If you copy what Tomigon has at the bottom of his first post, it does exactly that as well.
