Cereal and Magic

Discussion in 'CPA/WOTC Magic Issues' started by CAMDEX, Oct 17, 2001.

    How did they come up with naming decks Trix, and Fruity/Cocoa Pebbles?
  2. Chaos Turtle Demiurgic CPA Member, Admin Assistant

    It's a cutsey little trend. It started with (I think) Fruity Pebbles, then someone made Wheaties... It just snowballed from there.
    Some of the names are cute (Trix seems particularly appropriate) but in general I find it silly.

    I imagine someone is destined to make a "Nut'n Honey" deck sometime soon...
  3. Rando Freaky Bear

    I think it's only for combo-decks, though.

    There was also "Full English Breakfast," cause it was much more complex and fulfilling than regular cereal.
  5. terzarima New Member

    Don't forget, filled with fat :)
  6. FoundationOfRancor The Gunslinger

    Tinker or Wildfire decks should be called "Lucky Charms"
  7. Azreal the Soulmaster Sorrow's Rhapsody

    I'm waiting for the frosted mini wheats deck.

    The nominer "lucky charms" has been taken for several years. Their names are: Throne of Bone, Iron Star, Chrystal Rod, Wooden Sphere, and... there's also the white and artifact one that I cannot remember.

    They all are (1) cc artifacts with the text "(1): gain one life. Play this ability only when a (appropriate colour) spell is played, and only once for each spell."

    Full English Breakfast was called that because "It's full of fat, and far more interesting than just plain cereal." I played it for quite a while. :)

    Lucky Charms has been claimed by a variety of decks, ranging from a Tinker varient to a mono-green beatdown deck with maindeck Emerald Charms from the days of Replenish.

    The whole cereal thing started with Fruity Pebbles. MaRo told the team who invented the deck that they should call it "Trix," and that got them running on cereal. They decided on Fruity Pebbles, but Trix was later resurrected for the now-infamous Necro-Illusions deck. Since then, almost every cereal deck has had some logic behind its name.

    Cocoa Pebbles was Pebbles with lots of Black for Necro.
    Wheaties was Pebbles with "more to it." (A Survival/Utility deck featuring the Pebbles combo for the kill.)
    Cheerios is a Foster/Ashnod's Alter/0 cc creature deck with more 0 cc spells than any other deck.
    Etc...

    The rule now holds that Extended combo decks get named after cereals. I'm looking for a cereal name for Carpe Noctem, but none of them seem to fit. :)

    The white one is ivory cup.Are you sure there was an artifact one?
    The closest I could think of was soul net but that was life for creatures going to the graveyard.
  11. Elrond Veteran CPA Lurker

    Yeah there was an artifact one, it was Urza's Miter or something like that.
  12. TomB Administrative Assistant

    Or Tablet of Epityr, which is like a Soul Net for artifacts. Both appeared in Antiquities only, so most people aren't very familiar with them.

    I had a friend who played an Atog deck that was well stocked with lucky charms, but it really wasn't all that good back then, much less now, I'd imagine...:rolleyes:

    Count Chocula
  14. Elrond Veteran CPA Lurker

    Thanks Tomb, I was thinking of the Chalice.
  15. Zadok001 CPA Founder, Greater Good

    "Count Chocula"

    You.

    Are.

    The.

    Man.
  16. Thallid Ice Cream Man 21sT CeNTuRy sChIZoId MaN

    Darn!

    While reading this thread, I thought of that too, but Chaos Turtle had already posted it.

    Oh well... (ho hum)
  17. Duel Has Less Posts Than Spiderman

    *grins* ten points for Count Chocula....

    I refer to my green stompy deck as "captain crunch" for obvious reasons, but people persist in calling it "stompy"
  18. theorgg Slob

    But when you call it "Carpe Noctem" noone expects to be killed the fouth turn or before. If it's got a cereal name, they kinda expect it.

    Anyway, I thought bargain was "count chocula..."

    Mabe that was only a local pro's name for it.


    mmmmmmmmmm.... Total.....

    just total... J:{ )

    Let's start naming cereals that haven't been used yet.

    Raisin Bran
    Special K
    Chex (Wheat, Rice, Corn, Honey Nut, etc.)
    Mueslix (european)
    Kashi (health-food store type cereal)
    Reese's Peanut Butter Puffs
    Frosted Mini-Wheats (as Azreal suggested)
    Cinnamon Toast Crunch
  20. Duel Has Less Posts Than Spiderman

    I'd use Tinker/processor as cinnamon toast crunch....
