    Whats your favorite counterspell flavor text, and why?
  2. FoundationOfRancor The Gunslinger

    Personally, I like Rewind's flavor text the best. Even when you know nothing about Tolaria or the Magic story plot, when it rolls of your tongue a smile touches your face.

    ...or maybe its all that pot I've been smoking.

    Actually I like the memory lapse, its just funny. Ertai has to make the funniest quotes.

    I like the Saprazzan vizier one (although it's a close call). It's a long-winded sarcastic version of "Was that it?"

    Damn it.
    We need more Pulp Fiction fans.

    Simply because it's the most demeaning to your opponent

    Such as "your 7/7 Thornie isn't gonna hurt me, but it is pretty" :D

    Such as " your 20 point fireball isn't gonna burn me to a crisp, but it's SOOOOO adorably :D
  8. Almindhra Magic's Bitch

    I voted for Bo Levar's quote...Its so, *ssholish...It kind reminds me of something I would say...*g*...
  9. Gerode Becoming a Lurker Again

    My favorite has gotta be on Medicine Bag. It's too long for me to remember, unfortuanately :(

    Mogg Fanatic is also good. "I got it! I got it! I..."

    Medicine bag.

    "Never have I seen so many so sick for so long, we will never eat squee's cooking again."

    Pulp fiction? Mmmm don't be a


    (Just ignore the dots) :)

    I wish I had seen Pulp Fiction. Unfortunately, it never came to the theater here in What.

    I voted for the Saprazzan Vizier/Counterspell one. Spidey has the reason down pretty well; it's the same sort of insult as "Was that it?", but vaguely...cerebral.

    Actually, my favorite flavor text of all counterspells is from Intervene: “At first I simply observed. But I found that without investment in others, life serves no purpose.” --Karn, silver golem

    Not all that clever, but very nice.

    Does no one feel the love for Pulp Fiction? Come on.

    The Saprazzan Vizier one is good but it just doesn't hold up against the might of Samuel L. Jackson and Quentin Tarantino.
  14. Sammy Dead-O wasting away again

    Spidey: I've seen it; I was just making a joke based on the part of the movie with Frank Whaley and the Big Kahuna Burger...y'know, a place called What, "Say What again!" and all that...I guess it didn't come across very well...
  15. Gerode Becoming a Lurker Again

    Whoa... I just noticed that these were counterspell flavor texts. I guess I pulled this off-topic.

    "It was probably a lousy spell in the first place."

    The irony! DAMN IT, THINK OF THE IRONY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  18. Zadok001 CPA Founder, Greater Good

    Dude! What's up with THIS? And not a single vote for the brilliant Deflection? :) THAT'S the great one!
  19. TomB Administrative Assistant

    I'm rather fond of the quote on the Ice Age Counterspell...

    "The duel was going badly for me, and Zur thought I was finished. He boasted that he would eat my soul - but all he ate were his words."

    Sammy: You're fine. It is I who hasn't seen the movie that you were referencing; thus it was I who missed the joke. :(
