A Contest To Name My Deck!

Discussion in 'Casual Decks/Variants/Etc' started by Jigglypuff, Jan 8, 2002.

  1. Jigglypuff Big Cute Pink Thing

    This deck was born when I looked at the Squirrel Nest/Earthcraft combo and thought, "There has to be another way I can abuse this." And presto! This was born:

    4 Llanowar Elves
    4 Wall of Blossoms

    4 Counterspell
    1 Time Walk
    1 Time Stretch
    4 Gaea's Blessing
    3 Opportunity
    3 Capsize
    3 Vitalize

    2 Soothsaying
    4 Squirrel Nest
    4 Earthcraft
    3 Treasure Trove

    4 Tropical Island
    4 Treetop Village
    7 Island
    8 Forest

    To answer the burning question, yes I am aware that I can take one extra turn and wipe the table out by attacking with my squirrels. But I thought it would be more elegant to Capsize everything and then take a million turns while attacking with Treetop Villages like TurboLand used to do.

    Whoever comes up with the best name for my deck will win a Squirrel Nest, signed by me! Post or PM me your suggestions. You have until January 15th!

    To Spiderman and Ransac: LMK if you want to add your suggestions made in the other thread to the contest.

    I merged the two threads because I thought it was redundant to have the decklist in another thread and a post announcing the contest in another.

    And yes, add my suggestions to the contest, please.

  12. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    That's a great one.

    Now all it needs is an actual Drop of Honey :)
  13. ElGato New Member

    How about one of these:

    Screwball (an old cartoon squirrel)
    Chattering Death
    Suffocation by Squirrel
  14. Istanbul Sucker MCs call me sire.

    Note the presence of Wall of Blossoms.
  15. Killerbob Official CPA European Guy

    How about "Squirrel Time"?

    just imagine your opponents crying in horror "oh, no! It´s Squirrel Time again!"
  16. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Isty: True... but if the idea is to Capsize everything anyway, why not have Drop of Honey as the creature control instead of the Wall as a blocker (aside from drawing a card)?
  17. Istanbul Sucker MCs call me sire.

    Drawing a card is the whole point.
  18. Killer_Rabbit New Member

    Squirelly Rampage
    Capped Elves
    Capped Squirells?

    Yes, I know I can't spell, but give me a break. If anyone knows Yellowjacket, I go to his school so.....
  19. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Isty: So is it that big of a problem if the Walls fall first to the Drop of Honey if all you want to do is draw a card?
  20. Jigglypuff Big Cute Pink Thing

    I've decided to step in and resolve this debate between Istanbul and Spiderman.

    My official statement is:
    After reading Istanbul and Spiderman's statements, I did consider adding Drop of Honey. However, after careful thought, I realized that 0- and 1-power creatures are rare in my group. Therefore, the Drop would most likely kill off my defenders before it could deal with the other creatures.

    As for the contest, I will close the contest and announce the winner after I eat lunch, which gives you approximately 2 more hours.
