Alternative,Pop Punk, Rock Culture Contest

So if any of you know my of my profile on mtgcardsmith you can notice that i have really short hair. the reasons for this is because 1: I really was depressed and didn't brush my hair for days so i had @sorinjace take an electric razor to it. 2: Because It's something I've always wanted to do. Well since I'm feeling down I made this contest.
I love Pop Punk. I feel like when my hair is spikey really it's silly because it reminds me of the singer from Green Day. There are a lot of great bands that band names or songs can be used to make magic card names. My favorite band is Rise Against.

Making this contest you have to have a song or a band name used on your card that is in Punk culture. I don't care if it's a band outside the US. You can also do any band you'd like if it's alternative.

Can enter as many as you want.

I'll also take post hard core bands.

End date is going to be the my birthday in August which is the 14th. Going to be my 21st birthday. (Yay)

Hall of fame will be for 1st 2nd and 3rd places along with 4 favors each. 4th 5th 6th will get 2 favors each.

    For those of you, like me, that know nothing whatever about "Punk" or affiliated... things.

    That gives the "Top 100" bands and the name of a song from each.
    I feel dirty for linking it...

    FYI, Green Day is the No. 1 band (according to that list).
  • @Faiths_Guide Thank you. Sorry about you feeling dirty about punk. I do love Punk but I have my limit on what i'll listen too. Like Rise Against is anti war, disaster relief, and anti bulling for lgbt. I don't however like punk with extensive cursing.

    Here's an entry for Jawbreaker:

    I can't get into punk except for a little Green Day. But I adore alternative rock and pop rock. I'm going through @faiths_guide's list to see if there's anything I recognize and will make some card out of.

    p.s. I have short hair, have had for a long time now. I prefer it over when I had long hair which was such a hassle to take care of
  • @saveria201 I have dimples on my back and my hair uses to be down to the dimples below my shoulder blades. My friend got killing in a car accident two years ago and she used to come over and brush it when I was to depressed to.
  • Nice to know we are never alone...

    Come to think of it I have cds by Gang of Four and The Clash that I love, so maybe I enjoy punk more than I thought.

    Let's break down this card.

    In Spanish, "Despacito" means slowly. So, obviously, creatures entering the battlefield tapped represents slow-ness. Think Diregraf Ghoul or Authority of the Consols.

    Next, I wanted this card to have a stapled-on win condition that killed the opponent in a very Despacito fashion. Milling seemed to work here.

    The problem is, milling is a very blue ability. People would get upset if I made a white card that milled (even though any can technically mill given the correct circumstances. Take Millstone, for example. Any deck can play it, since it's colorless).

    Luckily, the song Despacito mentions Puerto Rico, an Island. So, we can allow Despacito (the card) to mill as long as the player controls an Island like in Despacito (the song).

    However, the card wanted to be Mono-white, so I decided to allow Despacito to tutor for a basic Island. This only helps you fix once, so it's not an amazing effect, but it helps.

    Last, I used Thanos for the art because Thanos is set to release Despacito 2 later this year and I really wanted to make a Thanos card. MaRo has even said that Thanos is a very White character, so I feel nothing wrong with sticking him on a white card.
  • @Aryanf I never know that you have short hair.

    Ok then.

    Well, Daft Punk has "Punk" in the name, so I'm gonna pretend it counts. This is a design I've had in one of my custom sets for a while.
