Offend us all contest (Warning: Offensive cards!)

Hello fellow cardsmiths, today I was searching youtube and ArtStation for the most offensive content because we like to understand unpopular views. So I wanted to see who can best offend us with the most horrifying card to look at.

The goal of this contest is to make the most offensive card ever, without breaking mtgcardsmith rules. By that I mean we want to see the most grim and disturbed cards we can find. So, hands up you little miscreants!

    Gotta love the red counterspell. I remember Guttural Response from back in the day.

  • This creature art was offensive for a few other cardsmiths back in the day because her armor was impractical. Just read the comments and you'll see.

    I made this card later in honor of the most cool looking equipment you can get in RPGs.

  • What kind of offensive are we talking about here? The real world social kind or the mtg design kind?
  • If I just put a pic of some cringy kid dabbing would that be sufficient
  • @DoctorFro isn't that already your profile pic?
  • This is a tough one...

    I don't get why you're asking for offensive things?
  • @Faiths_Guide
    It was mostly an experiment on thy part. We wanted to see how popular such a contest will be.

    @fiskerton
    The real world social kind.
  • So if I post cards pertaining to extremely controversial or sensitive topics, I have good chances?
  • I'm going to be remaking an abusive orphanage card as an example.
  • I think I remember that one.

    Ok, how about this one?

    Edit: Fixed and found a better picture

  • My best advice is to keep away from offensive stereotyping. There's always a thin line between funny and truly offensive...

    @fiskerton Seemingly busted for such low cmc.

    Give that guy a protection and an indestructibility and you would instantly win 99 percent of the game.

    @Corwinnn but isnt the point of the contest to be as offensive as possible?

    @Fallen_Lord_Vulganos that's part of the stereotyping too.

    Edit: I mean just to be clear, I'm not trying to offend anyone. By nature of the contest, everything should be taken lightly as a joke. Its a contest of trying to be offensive through mtg. To me that sounds like telling racist jokes but in the form of cards.
  • There is? I feel like as long as it practically has big flashing warning saying that it's not meant to be taken seriously, it should be fine.
  • edited September 6
    Is this offensive enough?

    Ok name changed.

  • @Fallen_Lord_Vulganos
    I suppose. I mainly am looking at the quality of the cards and if they are offensive in some form.

    So I'd say that counts, as transmutation is an offense against nature.

    They don't actually have to be completely desensitized or pertain to a real group as that may be inline with being against mtgcardsmith rules, I'm just looking for cards that cover dark topics. Examples could include assault, torture, disfigurement, abuse or anything that could be triggering to a demographic. So long as it doesn't break mtgcardsmith terms of service, you're fine.

    Most of the mtgcardsmith rules, cover things in the nature of nudity or imagery that is too graphic. (Eg. Real violence) But as long as your artwork follows typical WotC guidelines, it should be okay.

    Keep in mind, this is a card game that features dismemberment, assault, torture and abuse of varying natures depending on the set theme.

    @fiskerton @Corwinnn
    Sorry, I missed that card looking through the comments. Fiskerton, I'd recommend keeping to subject matter more than actual groups. This is due to the topic of racism needing to be explored through artwork/theme of a different nature.

    A perfect example for a card would be @Fallen_Lord_Vulganos card above, or an abusive orphanage as demonstrated in the image below.

  • @fiskerton - Yours is more of a basic stereotyping. I'm talking about offensive stereotyping, as an example, THOT cards are offensive to women and are not acceptable on published cards or Cardsmith names.
  • Curse you Bidoofs!!
  • I offended someone:D ..Wait, what is this sound? Oh no! It's Squirrelzilla! https://mtgcardsmith.com/view/squirrelzilla
  • @Corwinnn Unless the card is about slaying thots, then it would be approved.
  • @Corwinnn An example:

    Crovax slaying a chicken THOT card :

  • This guys' 'burping' may be offensive...!

    Liking most of the cards so far everybody.

    Thanks for not taking the cards too seriously. We thought this contest could be an interesting subversion of expectations and overall be a good change of pace for a bit.

    @Corwinnn
    Can you explain what a THOT card is, I'm not familiar with the term?

    Edit: Corwinnn explained it to me, thanks for increasing our awareness!
