So the original version of this game died over 7 years ago, let's see if I can get it going again by changing it up a bit.

1. The first person posts flavor text they make up.

We have to go deeper!

2. The second person makes a card around that flavor text.


Dwarf Prospector 2 mana symbolRed mana symbol
Creature - Dwarf Uncommon
First Strike
Tap symbol, Discard a card: Excavate 1 (Draw a card from the bottom of your deck.)
We have to go deeper!

3. Then, that person posts a new flavor text they make up for the next person.

*Grumble Grumble*

4. The third person rates the previous card and repeats steps 2 and 3.


Dwarf Prospector: Not bad, maybe give it the Soldier or Warrior type. 9/10

Ravenous Volpe White mana symbolWhite mana symbol
Creature - Fox Common
As an additional cost to cast ~, you can sacrifice a creature. If you do, this enters the battlefield with a +1/+1 counter and you gain 2 life.
*Grumble Grumble*

Next: "If I only had a crane..."


Right, let's start things off with the first flavor text:
"They don't look THAT tough."-Captain Shadowfang's last words

Hella yeah, I waited for something like that a long time (IMO I could make it myself but I was lazy)

Let the Hunger Games begin!

Gargantua Tortoise 1 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlue mana symbol
Creature - Turtle Uncommon
~ must be blocked if able.
Creatures blocking and blocked by ~ have first strike.
Whenever ~ is dealt damage, it gets +5/+0 until end of turn.
"They don't look that tough."-Captain Shadowfang's last words

Next text:
"Another one bites the ash."
-Jaya Ballard, task mage

I just dont understand why people pay thousands for a piece of cardboard.
Why just don't play some casual? Gee, it isn't even fun to play with, and especially against.

Sad to see no one else jumped in yet. :/

Gargantua Tortoise: I like how it really doesn't seem like a threat; 0/5 that gives the oppoenents creatures first strike. But, it gets a +5/+0 boost whenever it's dealt damage. I've got plenty of ideas already to make this three drop into a massive threat. 10/10

Hades Hazard 2 mana symbolRed mana symbol
Instant - Trap Uncommon
If an opponent cast a white or blue spell this turn, you may pay Red mana symbol rather than pay ~'s mana cost.
~ deals 3 damage to target creature. If that creature is white or blue, destroy it instead.
"Another one bites the ashe."
-Jaya Ballard, task mage

Next FT: Absolutely nothing...
