[CON] Tukatongue Thallid

  • #1
    A little lemony garden bird told me a secret. Meh, I was never one to keep secrets. At any rate, I'm the thallid guy in my circles, so what better than to introduce a little thallid. So here is my go at a puzzle:

    Take a shifty card from a timely set with the card number that is LXXXVI. Of course it has a different ability. It would be silly to just reprint that, duh.

    The nifty thing is that when this little fungal infestation expires it is followed up with a 0011000100101111001100010010000001110100011010000110000101101100011011000110100101100100.

    Check it with the Orb and you'll see this isn't your grandmothers Thallid (and we all know about your grandmother and fungus). Works great with an Alara mechanic, eh?

    Orb:
    Thallid: 2
    Tukatongue: 2
    Spore: 1
    Burst: 1

    Tukatongue Thallid - green mana
    Creature - Fungus (C)
    When Tukatongue Thallid is put into a graveyard from play, put a 1/1 green Saproling creature token into play.
    1/1

    Sorry to the mods for going to sleep last night and not wrapping this thread up. Also my riddle was incorrect because a little lemony bird actually said it was a Thallid and not a saproling, but it is in fact a Saproling. Yay thallid lovers everywhere!

    Dunerider Outlaw, but since it's a Thallid it puts a spore counter on when it does damage?

    I assume the numbers are going to binary code something... there's 88 digits, so it would divide nicely into 22 blocks of 4, but you can't code letters of the alphabet without blocks of 5. Hmm.
  • #3
    So its a Thallid that makes more Thallids instead of saprolings... hm.

    Do we know the mana cost or p/t on the guy?

    Tukatongue: 2
    Spore: 1
    Burst: 1


    The set is Time Spiral Timeshifted
    LXXXVI = 86
    Binary = "1/1 thallid"

    It could just be Thallid with "When Tukatongue Thallid leaves play, put a 1/1 Thallid token into play." Maybe it could put in tokens equal to the amount of counters on it. But with that, it probably wouldn't cost one.
  • #8
    Not sure where burst fits in, or how there's only one copy of the word "spore". Fits in with an Alara mechanic is probably devour. Perhaps "At the beginning of your upkeep, put a spore counter on ~. When ~ is put into a GY from play, put a 1/1 thallid into play for each counter on ~"?
  • #9
    maybe the card is ever recurring. Like:

    2G
    Creature
    When this creature it put in the graveyard from play, put a copy of this creature into play.
    1/2
    This is probably the worst signature in the history of signatures.

    #86 timeshifted is definately thallid, i'm HIV positive about this one

    alas, i am not nerdy enough to know how to read binary Frown

    I believe it's a 1/1 Thallid that makes Thallids that are the exact same as the old Thallid, only tokens (no CMC). Obviously the mana cost has to be different.

    Decoding his binary text you get:
    1/1 thallid


    Damn. I am so slow....

    If it had the same ability as Thallid, and it put copies of itself into play every time it hit the graveyard, that would be a bit ridiculous. There'd be no way of getting rid of it except to remove it from the game. And if you had multiple copies in play, that's guaranteed blockers with no drawbacks. Maybe I'm thinking about it too much, but that seems a little too powerful to me.

    So with that... the mechanic he speaks of would obviously be Devour.

  • #17
    What I don't get is the "burst" he mentions in the first post.
  • #18
    I was thinking that it would be a Thallid that instead of Saprolings, put full blown Thallids into play. But the simplest wording that I can think of would require copy tokens, and a third instance of "Tukatongue Thallid", but there's only two.
  • #19
    It can't create a Thallid when it goes into graveyard, since Thallid only appears twice (1 in name, 1 in "When ~name~ is put into ..."

    Spore: 1 ? Spore counters? Makes no sense with only 2 references of Thallid...
    Burst: 1 ? Huh? :p

    Spore Burst is a name on the card lists.

    No spore counters for Tukatongue
    I'll hold myself to this. I'll get fancy dishes and everything.
    FoW will never be re-printed for standard use. If it is, I will eat a playset of Alliance copies.
  • #21
    Maybe "whenever ~ is Devoured, put a 1/1 token copy of ~ into play"?
  • #22
    maybe "burst" means something like...OMFG!
    [CARD]
    saproling burst[/CARD]

    something related to that?

    saproling burst could've been good with devour, after all

    Oh, that makes sense. And pretty much confirms:

  • #24
    maybe its a 1/1 for 1 green thalid when Tukatongue Thallid becomes sacrificed/dies either return it to play, or put a token into play. probably put a token into play because that is more in the flavor

    Whenever Tukatongue Thallid is devoured, put a token copy of Tukatongue Thallid into play.

    1/1

    thats kinda what i said, but they wouldnt make a card that narrow. it would only be played in standard and block.

    The first time things trigger is when the creature is in play, so you can stack the triggers whichever way you want, saving your thallid.
    This is probably the worst signature in the history of signatures.
