    A cycle of very nice "Twist cards." The second Red and White ones are missing, but...


    Lifetwist 3BB
    Rare
    Instant
    Exchange life totals with target opponent until the end of the turn. If that player would lose the game, you lose the game instead. If you would lose the game due to life loss, that player loses the game instead. You may not play this card during the combat phase or in reaction to a spell that would cause lethal damage to a player.

    Knowledge Twister 4BB
    Rare
    Sorcery
    Each player shuffles his or her hand and graveyard into his or her deck, then searches his or her deck for up to five cards and puts them into his or her hand.

    Reality Twister 4Bu
    Rare
    Sorcery
    Each player shuffles all cards that he has on his side of the field into his or her decks, then may play any number of cards from his or her hand without paying their mana costs.

    Multiversial Tornado 3BuBu
    Rare
    Sorcery
    Each player shuffles all cards in play, in their graveyards, and in their hands into their decks and draws as many cards as were shuffled in this way.

    Instinct Twist 3GG
    Rare
    Sorcery
    Exchange control of all creatures you control with the creatures target opponent controls.

    Primal Twister 4GG
    Rare
    Sorcery
    Each player shuffles his or her hand and graveyard into his or her deck. Then each player removes all creatures he or she controls from the game, and then searches through his or her deck for up to that number of creatures with different names and puts them into play.

    Mindtwister 3RR
    Rare
    Sorcery
    Exchange your deck and hand for your opponent’s hand and deck.

    Verdictious Twister 4WW
    Rare
    Instant
    Each Player removes all permanents he or she controls from the game, shuffles his or her hand and graveyard to deck, and draws seven cards.

    Nevertwister 8
    Rare
    Instant
    Split Second
    Nevertwister is colorless.
    Each player removes his or her hand and graveyard from the game, then remove all permanents in play from the game, then each player shuffles his or her deck. Shuffle Nevertwister into your deck and then each player draws seven cards.

    Nice ideas!


    I like this a lot. I'm not opposed to the cost or anything.

    I'm torn on this. I see this being the precursor to a lot of drawn out combos, effectively winning the game once you play this.

    Like the previous one, undercosted. There should be a downside to playing this card.

    Repeating, undercosted. I think the fact that it's a complete reset button for only 3UU makes it completely broken. It should be at least 5UU or 6UU.

    This cost is a little overcosted. In fact, it already exists in the 2UU instant form of Reins of Power......... Hold on, just noticed that it's a permanent effect. Okay, maybe this is fine, but it's very undercosted for it to be in Green.

    Eh..... I don't think I have a problem with this.

    Maybe half your life, too?... and black?

    Maybe I misunuderstood your concept of "twist." Are you trying to reallocate typical color abilities to other colors?

    EDIT: And you added another one!

    I can live with this as is.

    Knowledge twister... Huh, i dunno. It could lead to auto-wins. but maybe the downside should be that you have to tap out and end your turn, that would actually force you to think: Will your opponent kill you with the cards that he gets?
    Mindtwister was the first one. I really like that one as it is, and I'd say, it's the ultimate weapon for the budget player!!
    Knowledge twister: when I look at it, you're right. It really sets everything back to point zero, and if you can somehow hold onto a megrim when it goes off, someone is really gonna be hurting. so yeah, raise it to 6UU.
    The other blue one: I should actually pull it. it really doesn't fit all that well
    Verdictious Twister: I define under a 'Twister card' a card that first of all gets seven new cards and shuffles everything, or a card that switches stuff around. And the white one... Well, it's timetwister with a very white side. But also underpriced, I guess.
  4. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    Perhaps it leave you to tap yourself out, but there are too many combos that can go off with having the perfect 5 cards. Imagine this card thrown into a BU tinker deck....

    My only negative thought on the card is the fact that "Mind Twist" already exists."


    :D

    :D

    Yes.... very underpriced. If you're going to add an effect based on the color, you should also add a downside to compensate.

    Darn! Curse you mind twist!
    I've never had a situation that I was glad to see that card...
    Oh, and about tinker... I run that in my affinity deck once, what's a tinker 'deck'?
  6. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    Tolarian Academy, Tinker, Mana Artifacts, Stroke of Genius, Mind over Matter, etc.

    It can win on turn one already. It came out during the Urza's Cycle.


    Ransac, cpa trash man
  7. Budget Player Cadet Where in the world is BPC

    Why did I see tolarian academy coming? I want that card!!!!
  8. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    It's definitely all kinds of amazing....... the kind of amazing that requires it only being legal for one week of Type 2 before they banned it.


    Ransac, cpa trash man
  9. Budget Player Cadet Where in the world is BPC

    How did I see that coming? The good news is, only ante cards and shazarad are banned in Vintage, and that's the format I (some people would call this dumb, the rest would call this absolutely idiotic) play in.
  10. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Well, Chaos Orb and Falling Star are also banned...

    But there's several Restricted cards, of which the Academy is one...
  11. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    A crime in itself....

  12. Budget Player Cadet Where in the world is BPC

    There really should be a tournament format where everything is allowed up to four times.
  13. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    There is.... it's called "Playing with your friends."

    Ransac, cpa trash man
  14. Budget Player Cadet Where in the world is BPC

    I wish I could do it even there... My friends all start to complain when they see an artifact land!
  15. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    They tried that in Magic's beginning. Lots of first turn kills, hence, it came down to whoever went first. Not very fun or exciting - you can roll a die without Magic cards to get the same result.
