Do R&D's Job (Fix broken cards)

Discussion in 'Home Made Cards' started by Landkiller, Nov 17, 2000.

  1. Landkiller CPA Menace

    This thread is for writing fixes on broken cards.

    for example :

    Yawgmoth's Unbroken Bargain 4BB
    Enchantment
    If you do not control at least six lands when this comes into play, lose the game.
    Pay 1 life : Draw a card.

    I'm sorry, but that makes it useable only in black/green.
    There's a difference between powering down and screwing up.
    I think you powered it down too much, way too much.
    Nice idea though.
  3. Landkiller CPA Menace

    Ok. The only way you could accelerate this out is if you can accelerate your lands, in some kind of black green deck.

    But what would you do?
  4. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    He's a non-broken version of Tolarian Academy!

    Tolarian Monkey Ranch
    Legendary land
    T: This card does nothing. Stare and ponder

    What do you think?

    Ransac, retard
  5. Landkiller CPA Menace

    Oh, man, that Monkey Ranch is broken. Shouldn't it have echo, or at least come into play tapped? ;)
  6. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    Tolarian Whore House
    Legendary Land
    Echo
    Kicker: Pay life equal to number of hairs on your opponent's head.
    Phasing
    T: This card does nothing. That's right, nothing. If you paid the kicker cost, this card still does nothing. Just stare and ponder of why you paid the kicker in the first place, you retard.

    Nontolarian Acadamy
    Land
    T, sacrafice an artifact in play: Add U to your mana pool for each artifact you control. Lose life equal to the converted mana cost of the artifact with the highest converted mana cost you control.
    Stupid kid!

    Dwarfling
    2UU
    Creature- Dwarf
    Tap a creature you control: Dwarfling Gains flying Until end of turn.
    2: Must be the legal target of all creature targeting spells until end of turn.
    U: Untap Dwarfling.
    UU: Dwarfling is Unblockable until end of turn.
    1:+1/-1 till eot.
    1:-1/+1 till eot.

    Firestorm, Artifacts don't have converted mana cost.

    Rancor (yes it IS broken!!!) G

    Grey Lotus
    1
    Artifact
    T, Sacrifice: Add 3 colorless mana to you mana pool
  11. Lotus Mox New Member

    first: Artifacts do have a converted mana cost
    second: Grey Lotus is BROKEN, it is better than Sol Ring in most circumstances and don't tell me Sol Ring isn't broken.

    Here's my fixed Yawgmoth's Will:

    Yawgmoth's UnBroken Will
    3BB
    Sorcery
    Choose up to two target cards in your Graveyard, until end of turn you may play these as though they were in your Hand.

    I doubt it is really unbroken, but it ain't that freaky anymore.

    Come on now everyone, let's actually try this.

    Tolarian Academy v 2.0
    Legendary Land
    T: Add U to your mana pool for each artifact you control. Use this ability only once each turn.

    See? Easy right?

    Yawgmoth's Bargain v 2.0
    Enchantment
    3BB
    Pay 1 Life: Draw a card.
    Whenever you would draw a card, instead remove that card from the game.
    0: Put a card removed from the game by Yawgmoth's Bargain into your hand. You cannot play this ability on your turn. You cannot play this ability if you have more than 6 cards in hand.

    Masticore v 2.0
    Artifact Creature - Golem
    4
    During your upkeep, pay 2 life or sacrifice an Artifact.
    2: Masticore deals 1 damage to target creature.
    2: Regenerate Masticore.
    2/3

    Morphling v 2.0
    Creature - Shapeshifter
    2UUU
    During your upkeep, tap all basic lands you control.
    U: Untargetable until end of turn.
    U: Flying until end of turn.
    1: +1/-1 until end of turn.
    1: -1/+1 until end of turn.
    3/3

    Replenish v 2.0
    Sorcery
    2WW
    Remove the top 2 Enchantment cards from each graveyard from the game, then return all Enchanment cards in all graveyards to play.

    Voltaic Key v 2.0
    Artifact
    1
    T: Untap target artifact. Target opponent may then pay 3 to force that artifact's controller to sacrifice it at end of turn.

    It's a start.
  13. Thallid Ice Cream Man 21sT CeNTuRy sChIZoId MaN

    I think that if you Capsize the Academy, then even your version wouldn't fix anything, because infinite mana can still be generated. Am I right?

    This should probably be what Tolarian Academy is:

    Tolarian Academy v. 2.0
    Legendary Land
    Tap, Remove Tolarian Academy from the game: Add U to your mana pool for each artifact you control. At the end of the turn, put Tolarian Academy into play under its owner's control.

    Also, here's another thing:

    High Market v. 2.0
    Land
    Tap: Add one colorless mana to your mana pool.
    Tap, Remove a creature you control from the game: Gain 1 life.

    This prevents you from sacking a Rector to it and getting Bargain. In fact, High Market was the culprit for W/B Bargain's brokenness.


    P.S.: If fixing broken cards was truly R&D's job, this discussion wouldn't be happening right now because none of these cards would have been printed.

    Your version of Academy is better, I like the self-Flicker (NOTE: even sorta goes along with continuity stuff of Pendrell creatures and Temporal issues)

    Taking out High Market doesn't take out Bargain though, they'll just use Phyrexian Tower. Market's fine right now (maybe make it Legendary for the new environment?)
  15. K9Archmage He Might Be Giants

    Tolarian College
    Land

    tap: add a number of colorless mana to your mana pool equal to the number of softmores you control.

    Hoipa
  16. Cateran Emperor Passed On

    Tolarian Grad School
    Legendary Land
    T: Add UU to your mana pool for each artifact you control.
    And you thought our undergraduates were bad...
