    Okay, here's some from the slang-book of a veteran player. These come from people who've been playing since before 1995.

    Gang Bang: When more than 5 weenies attack you simultaneously.

    Suicide: When you know you're going to lose, and decide to tap all of your lands and mana burn yourself to spoil your opponent's fun.

    Casper: Blinking Spirit

    Frogments: What's left of a Spore frog after it prevented combat damage.

    Lock: Any situation where a player has little or no copable actions, usually by limiting his mana or by producing some constantly recurring effect.

    summon counterspell= a key card in your deck, played when you know you're going to die against a counterspell deck, and you know he can counter it.

    nasty whore = masticore

    topdeck skills = pure luck. pulling the card you need when you need it
  9. Multani Treetrunk Guy

    This is the stuff that my Magic Group uses:
    Are you sure you want to do that = If you do, you die next turn
    I don't like you = I attack you with everything I've got.
    That creature's annoying = It's dead meat
    Annoying deck = My Blue Counter-Control Deck
    Smile = Counterspell(s) in hand
    Hippie = Hypnotic Specter
    Hymn = Hymn to Tourach

    That's all I can think of.

    Here are some of the things that me or people from my group said:
    Replentish - Replenish
    story behind it: no idea
    Capsize - Cryptsize
    story behind it: the guy who calls replenish replentish, has the crypt rats/spirit link/inviolability/ a whole lot of other studd/ deck. As soon as he uses the rats ability my other friend kept on capsizing the rats. Go figure :)
    Magetnta- Mageta. No Idea. I say it like that sometimes. Stop making fun of me :)
  11. theorgg Slob

    Hmmm... All of that's true for my group, too, except for "that annoying deck" is fog'ive and Fog'et(read Turtle's Prophecy pre-relese report for the summary of it... I played him with it there.)
  12. Istanbul Sucker MCs call me sire.

    Thought of some more.

    Pile - Any deck that's very poorly constructed.

    Urza's Masturbator - Urza's Incubator

    "Stupid Glacier Tricks" - (My invention) Using Glaciers at the end of my opponent's turn, even with the current errata, to grow my mana supply.

    "Stupid Soothsaying Tricks" - (also my invention) Tapping out at the end of my opponent's turn with Soothsaying in play to rearrange my deck.

    "Pop" - to tap and sacrifice a permanent for an effect. "I'll go ahead and pop my Nevinyrral's Disk."

    City of @$$ - City of Brass

    Pimpy - Any card that's especially cool (ex. My Japanese foil Archivist is pimpy. The fact that I bought it for $5 is *extremely* pimpy.)

    Walk - Time Walk

    Lotus - Black Lotus

    Creep - To cast Creeping Mold on something. "I'll Creep your Worship." "Aw, crap."

  13. Mundungu grumpier than ever

    Ah ! I cant believe no one mentioned that one :

    (To) stroke = make target player draw cards from his library ..

    "He stroked him for 60 and went all the way to win the grand prize"
  14. Lythand Veteran CPA Member

    Stroke: Refering to Stroke of genius.
    "I stroke myself for 12" Meaning to draw 12 cards.

    Mill: To force and opponant to take cards from the top of the Library and put them into his graveyard. Derived from the old artifact Mill stone

  15. Chaos Turtle Demiurgic CPA Member, Admin Assistant

    Yeah, I can see this thread's been inactive for awhile, but I just wanted to throw in a couple of things that I would have added had I noticed this thread way back when it first started...

    My trade phrases:

    "This game... is over."

    Distorted Fight Club reference.

    Usually said when playing Absolute Law/Grace against a mono-red/black deck with my first-strike white weenie deck.

    Could refer to any card play which ends all hope of a recovery by the opponent.

    "I have you now."

    Darth Vader, in [/i]The Empire Strikes Back[/i]

    Usually facetious, it means I just made a mistake that will probably cost me the game.

    "Bend over and take It like a man."

    Sorry you're getting land-screwed (or creature-screwed, or just plain screwed). That's the way the game goes sometimes.

    "Sh**s and giggles."

    As in, "Let's play a game for ~."
    Means to play a game for no reason other than to play a game (no tournament, no Arena, not even testing a deck).

    "Rob Deck"

    I didn't make this one up (Rob is me). Another player in the local group did.

    It refers to any deck which relies on an engine of some kind to win. Examples would be Living Death, Recur-Survival, Palinchron (with Vanguard Sisay), Dream Halls Engine... stuff like that, which I played almost exclusively back in my deck-invention days.

    I later swore off combo, to focus on my play skills (as opposed to my bore-you-to-death skills).

    The term still gets applied to those in the group who play a deck like this, especially if it's a deck of their own design.
  16. Gerode Becoming a Lurker Again

    Tim? (Monty Python reference), TIMMAY! (South Park reference), SuperTim - Horseshoe Crab with Hermetic Study

    Big Mama - Mother of Runes

    UNWORTHY! - When one of my friends plays Unworthy Dead.

    Fog Frog - Spore Frog

    You hippie! (in Cartman voice) - Hypnotic Scepter

    Counter bait - A spell you that you know will be countered

    Smack - Trash talk (talking smack to someone)

    You might want to think about that - Casting Rethink to counter a spell

    And, yes, you've guessed it,

    SHINY! - Foil card
  17. Cateran Emperor Passed On

    Rage - Urza's Rage something
    Nuclear strike - casting Obliterate
    Wave (out) - remove a creature with Parallax Wave

  19. Neil Rigby New Member

    Are you Tim Hall = Whenever someone ask's if they have already played a land this turn, or say's that they haven't played a loand this turn. Tim Hall was a player who dominated the magic scene in England for a while whilst playing the CadBloom deck, and he always said that he had not layed a land yet before and after casting Natural Balance

    Cheat = To use a Thawing Glacier (possibly the best card in the game) i.e At the end of your turn I will cheat.

    I drafted with Northerners = Whenever you get a really powerful draft deck.

    Cheeky XXXX = When you play/try to play a card that is unexpected at that time of the game (this is one of our phrases that was nicked by some famous Americans in Rome).

    Why are you still here = When the game is quite obviously beyond you opponents reach yet they insist on still playing.

    Can't think of any more at the moment but will keep you updated if I suddenly can.
  20. Gizmo Composite: 1860

    Cheeky XXXX - as in, 'Cheeky Wrath' or 'Cheeky Scroll'. Not as in Cheeky F**k' - that`s what you say to your mates after the game.
