Hi,

Scars of Mirrodin Spoilers

Spoiler:
Poison counters will make a comeback in Scars of Mirrodin, so I thought this might be fun.

I thought it might be fun to create our own poison cards.
Comment on the last card posted and then post your own.
I'll start:

Herbalife (C)
BG
Instant
Choose one — Target player gets 3 poison counters; or destroy target nonblack creature; or exile all cards from target player’s graveyard.

Herbalife 6/10 - 3 poison counters for 2 mana is rather powerful, don't you think? And the name seems a bit misleading - the name sounds the complete opposite of the function.

Burden 3 mana symbolBlack mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Sorcery
Double the number of poisons counters target player has.

Hidden Viper can't block.
Poison X
1+X/1+X

Burden 7/10 - Overpowered, but probably unplayable in constructed.

Tainted Lavaflow
Land - Mountain Red mana symbol
(Tap symbol: Add Red mana symbol to your mana pool)
~ enters the battlefield tapped.
Tap symbol, Pay 3 life: Add Black mana symbol to your mana pool. Instant and sorcery spells cast with mana produced this way have poisonous (Whenever they deal damage to a player, that player gets that many poison counters)

I know that is not the real poisonous reminder text, but I changed it to fit my needs.

PS. The card is part of a cycle.

EDIT: Ninja'd

Second Edit: Sourlake Tarantula 9/10 fine playable common or uncommon. Next person rates the Lavaflow.

In a space where there is no room, in a structure that was never built, meets the guild that doesn't exist. And they'd like to keep it that way.

Hidden Viper: 8/10 Why can't it block?

Sour Lake Tarantula
2B
Creature - Spider
First strike, poisonous 2
UU: Sour Lake Tarantula is unblockable this turn.
1/2

Tainted Lavaflow 8/10 - I quite like the change to reminder text, as it makes things more adaptable. Although it now becomes rather powerful, no?

Seeping Vein 1 mana symbolRed mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Enchantment
Whenever a source you control deals damage to a player, that player gets half that many poison counters, rounded down.

Seeping Vein - I like it, but it should say "whenever a source you control without poisonous deals damage to a player". 8/10

Venomspore Thallid Green mana symbolGreen mana symbolBlack mana symbol2 mana symbol
Creature - Fungus
At the beginning of your upkeep, put a spore counter on Venomspore Thallid.
Remove three spore counters from Venomspore Thallid: Put a 1/1 green Saproling creature token onto the battlefield.
Saproling creatures you control have poisonous (Whenever they deal damage to a player, that player gets that many poison counters)

My poisonous reminder text without a number (Whenever this deal damage to a player, that player gets that many poison counters) And with a number (Whenever this deals damage to a player, that player gets X poison counters)

I challenge the next poster to design a white card with poisonous.

In a space where there is no room, in a structure that was never built, meets the guild that doesn't exist. And they'd like to keep it that way.

Spoiler tags around future set spoilers! The set is too far away for that kind of crap to already be happening.

So did you get invited to join the design team pich, seeing as you already did poison again so many years ago?

Ha! No, not hardly. But from what I can tell, there's no confirmation they're doing it.

I like Venomspore Thallid, but it feels just slightly overcosted to me.

Spiritual Cleansing
Sorcery
You lose one poison counter.
Target player chooses one - creatures you control gain poisonous until the end of turn; or that player gains a poison counter.

I hope this fits the spirit of the challenge.

Enchantment
All creatures have poisonous 1.

Season of the Serpent: Barely useable at all, but a fun idea anyways.

Toxic Plane 2 mana symbolRed mana symbolGreen mana symbol
Enchantment
At the beginning of each players upkeep, that player flips a coin. If it heads, that player gets a poison counter. Otherwise, each of that player's opponents gets a poison counter.

Spoiler:
In the rules insert that comes with fat pack, which update once annually, per Core Set, there's a mention of "Poison Counters" in the rules glossary. If that doesn't confirm it, nothing will.

Regarding your spoiler jrzman - still not convinced. Confirmation means a real card with the mechanic, a rules insert from that set confirming the mechanic's presence, a tips & tricks card about it... Even a trust-worthy rumormonger saying "Poison is in."


Here's a hint. I already said in this thread to keep spoilers under wraps. Continuing to post spoiler information outside of spoiler tags makes me want to suspend you. DON'T DO IT. DON'T DO IT. NO, REALLY, DON'T DO IT!

And don't double post either, MiruNuva. :\

Pich - sorry, but

Spoiler:
Poison in Scars is as real as Chuck Norris's beard. WOTC just confirmed it today.

Gee, really DH? I didn't see the post today.[/sarcasm]

My posts on the subject are older than today. The one that looks like I made it today is because I edited instead of double posting myself. A sad 'frowny'

No, I think thats just a lame excuse for not keeping up with stuff thats as real as chuck norris's beard. Come on pich. You have to step up.

Har har har.

No, but seriously, looking back, sorry DH. I was snippy with you, and you didn't do anything wrong. Still coming down off MiruNuva's unspoilered spoilers, I suppose.
