Matt Tabak on typical snarky form on the topic of 100.6b.
Dropped mana cost, reworded ability to function in "silver border" games only.
I agree with jmgariepy on the cost of this. I didn't even take into consideration that you would, more often than not, have no real idea o what card you would get, or if the card would even be usable by you. I mean, I could tack on an ability to make the card playable regardless of mana cost, but this card is already kind o wordy. Also, it's meant to only affect other "Silver Border" games. I'll have to reword that. Also, I will definitely drop the cost. May make a card to combo wth this though (allowing you to pay for "stolen " cards with "any" mana), so I may only drop the cost by or .
Too bad you can't use this in tournaments anymore (assuming you're at an Un-Tournament) since you can't use electronic devices. :-(
My version of Spike would give you some kind of benefit for playing with money rares.
THE RULES OF MAGIC DO NOT APPLY IN SILVER-BORDERED LAND!
V: That's why this is a silver-bordered card...
Wizards have so far steered clear of that effect in mass-market silver-bordered sets, but they've used it in limited distribution silver-bordered holiday cards.
Also puts an opponents card into your hand, which is a no-no. Official approach seems to be something like "Exile it, you may play it as though it were in your hand" And then there's remembering to give it back to deck instead of their graveyard.
I like that last part, sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad. But this needs to mark it somehow.
Man, that's one expensive cantrip. Wouldn't , and no discard make more sense? I mean, even that's technically a worse card than Opt, most of the time.
Flavor text idea: "I prefer the term "non-consensual borrowing."
Did I just troll Link? That's awesome!
Gave a source for the quote. Don't know why I chose this one, but it's a reference to Phantasmal Bear.
No, because it gets to come back as whatever you feel like.
Strictly worse than Cheatyface.
I made it common for a reason.
I get the idea that he's a troll.
I'm hoping you're being sarcastic when you say that real adults don't play games. It's hard to tell in text.
I get the idea that you're very easily offended.
y'all just jealous i thought of it first. sorry, buddy, but you have to pay to see the rest.
should have been donkey.
before you fall off your high horse, you might want to check which topic you're in. clearly you missed the 'humor' in the title. god forbid, they print official cards based on toilet humor or racy body parts, or depict sexual acts or gratuitous boobs and nudity. nope, mature designers and artists would never fall to that level.
(yes i get defensive when people try to act moral on what is appropriate when it comes to creativity and self-expression. ironic someone calls out maturity on a game. real adults don't play games, or waste time making cards that would never see print without compensation.)
Yeah, these kinds of cards are very rare. When someone created a set full of pimp jokes I suggested he might consider whether this was appropriate, and he deleted the set, an outcome of which I'm broadly in favour.
I don't want this kind of card to comprise a significant proportion of the site's content, but I'll overlook one or two. I'd rather not see this expanded into a full cycle, though, please, amuseum.
It's really not the site as a whole.
The maturity level on this site always leaves me in awe.
How bizarre. I'm sure I've seen custom cards of Spike before. Maybe it was more around the time of Unhinged though, before Multiverse existed.
