Untapped, a Community Joke Set!

  • #1
    Recently I came up with an extremely serious, complex block idea's storyline in which I think I've gotten as much input as I'll get. Before I start putting out some cards for each of that blocks sets (which still need some tweaks, revisements, ect.) I thought it might be a good idea to have a reliever... Untapped! A community mtg joke set!

    If you are interested in contributing in any way, by all means let me know!

    Although there are a couple of cards I want to include regardless of mechanics, I do hope to get some ideas in crafting it. Before submitting the card, imagine people playing it at your nearby hobby shop. Would they find it hillarious? Is it something that would cause people to laugh their ***es off, or atleast act in strange, yet hillarious ways?

    Let humor insue the world!

    Keywords that we come up with will be placed here, as well as ongoing themes.

    There would have been a message here about Jace, but Jace feigned interest and counterspelled any other reference of him in my signature...

    Troll creatures that force you to troll somehow or another?
  • #5
    I think my reaction would have been different if you had described the "setting" almost any other way. I'm 40 years old. At our game shop there are kids as young as 8 who have graduated from yugio or whatever other non-sense. Further, there are often way more male players than female and probably even more male gay payers than female.

    So I think "I'd Tap That" card is a lawsuit case waiting to happen or a little weird looking when a 35-year pats the butt of a 14 year old girl.

    Tapping someone in real life can be more appropriate:

    Made You Look U
    Sorcery
    Target player closes his or her eyes. You stand on either side of them and tap one of their shoulders. If they turn their head towards you, they draw two cards. If they turn their head away from you, you may draw 2 cards.

    Anyway, there were two main problems with former Un-sets. One was that a lot of jokes weren't funny after the first few times. Jokes only work once. These cards should be humorous, not jokes.

    Second is that a lot of these cards are terrible. For instance, Goblin Mime has a great effect, but it's a 2/2 for 2 with a downside. No one would ever play that. Even if these cards are funny, they should still be playable.

    Also, I love the troll idea.

    True enough. Changed the wording to just touching the opponent, doesn't have to be behind.

    Yeah, changed it according to what you and Revolutionary said.

    Like your card idea! Definately will add it in later during the day. (going to bed now)

    You are right in terms of alot of the cards simply being jokes, and not that humorous. Thanks for some more of the insight of how I should go about this, although it may be difficult to make a full set of completely hillarious cards without reducing the hillarity with similar features from one card onto the next.

    Here's an example of a card that is UN in it's nature and is totally playable.

    Rare-B-Gone

    Now a card like this could be made even more "relevant"

    For example.
    Anex Gold Card 0 Common Instant

    You may play ~ only if you control no rare cards.

    - Choose one or both
    Exile target rare card, or Counter target spell if it is rare.
    If a spell is countered this way, exile it instead.

    Whe do you mean you thought I said Amex Gold Card?


    Here's another interesting card...harking back to the days of "Ante"

    Truth, Dare, or Bribery 2BB
    Sorcery - Rare

    Each player writes down a question and a dare for the person on his/her right.
    Each player get's an emblem saying: "Each player who doesn't win this game must pick truth, dare, or bribery. A player who picks truth must answer the question written for him/her honestly. A player who picks dare must completely the dare. A player who picks bribery must buy the winner a junk rare."

    "Oh, thank you, another Vizzerdix, thank you."

    Based on a comment from a review on my Egyptian Themed set (which I assume is a joke since he made a smiley) ... How about this...

    Common Struggle. 2WB (r)

    When ~ enters the battlefield select either common or rare.

    Creatures of the selected rarity get +1/+1, creatures of every other rarity get -1/-1.


    Common Fate. 3GG (R)

    Name a common creature card. You may put as many legal copies of the named card into the battlefield as you own.

    At the end of game, the winner takes ownership of these cards.

    I remember that one quite vividly, and I made my own recommendation that complimented it! Might as well include the two!

    Personally I would try and lean away from Ante related cards. Sure, it spices it up, but it doesn't really make it overall fun.

    As stated before, would prefer not to go the route of ante. Rarity, maybe a couple of cards relating to it, but not too many, as then the joke or the fun playstyle of one kinda wears out. Think of it if a comedian played the same joke at every show. Naturally over time it would get a bit boring and uninteresting. I will use Common Struggle though, but just my thoughts in regards to it.

    @Tyrantherus: I made a topic about this card and everyone instantly fell in love. The topic title is the same of the card, so you can just search it in the search bar or in google and you should get it.

    Other wise, do you want more modern cards? Like Myr and Eldrazi?

    I think it's because Chickens were the "joke" type in Unglued, just like Donkeys were the joke type in Unhinged. Untapped should probably get it's own joke type to make it unique. (I still love the Troll idea.)

    Sorry that I haven't been as active lately.

    Regardless, I feel that Trolls should be the most unique staple creature type this time around.

    @Shikadi, Static Field, I liked! Empty Battery actually feels like it could, in fact, be a playable card in the real game if it had a more serious name. Amorphous Titan I also liked.

    @Evilferrit, Not too sure on Ned...
    Survival of the Sittest will never last unless there is another card that compliments it. If you do add a card that does, I'll consider adding it to the list.

    Another joke set on this forum had cows as its primary white creature type. That said, I don't want to exactly copy his theme.

    Ground Hog, although it makes sense what it is doing with its ability, doesn't really add any humor to the game so to speak.

    The other cards you posted I did like however, and have added them to the list.

    There would have been a message here about Jace, but Jace feigned interest and counterspelled any other reference of him in my signature...
