[CON] 2 New Lands (Rupture Spire and Unstable Frontier)

  • #1
    My sources have given me two new cards. The first puzzle was apparently too easy for you, so I hope this will be a little more entertaining. Well you asked for 'Nerd' hard.....

    Edit:
    Solved and confirmed
    Unstable Frontier
    Uncommon Land
    :symtap:: Add 1 mana to your mana pool.
    :symtap:: target land you control becomes the basic land type of your choice until end of turn.


    Rupture Spire
    Common Land
    Rupture Spire comes into play tapped.
    When Rupture Spire comes into play, sacrifice it unless you pay :1mana:.
    :symtap:: Add one mana of any color to your mana pool.

    Yes! Clues like this! Smile

    Go to work Rumor Mill! Thanks Little Birdy!

    I don't think the first one has anything to do with land, but you can see the word land in there...

    I think the last phrase of the first clue is "until end of turn" somehow...hrm...cipher time?

    first one seems to have the word basic in it aswell so i would think something to do with basic land types.....or interactions with a basic land permanent

    My guess something along the lines of.....Target land becomes basic type of your choice until end of turn.

    I got the secconf one:
    land
    rupture
    spire
    comes
    into
    play
    tapped
    when
    rupture
    spire
    comes
    into
    play
    sacrifice
    it
    unless
    you
    pay
    (1)
    tap
    to
    add
    one
    mana
    of
    any
    color
    to
    your
    mana
    pool

    Something else I noticed...it feels like there's a substitution cipher going on...

    Look at this:

    UnaFrrLdTtd(1)rmoolpaanntontaetland

    Then these...

    UnaFrrLdTtd(1)rmoolpaanntontaetland

    the two letters missing are "rg" to make it target...so where do they show up together? On down the string:

    ycrolindtotouhe baTatursicldtyrgpeofyontieourchoontceap

    Note they only show up once together.

    Sensibly I can't imagine the "static" ending up having pieces of EOT text is likely for anything since the rest of the text surrounding is useless for even piecemeal application like EOT is gotten by.

    I'd recommend starting with the CC - since the (1) is quite likely intended as a single character to represent 1 and the only other mana symbol friendly character is the U towards the front - I'd imagine we're looking at a U1 CC card with some sort of skipping mechanism to determining the letters, but with a simple skip 11 pattern it doesn't work - although assuming normal formatting CC should be after card name, which would obviously be a bit more difficult to toss into the blender to figure out.

    i.e. stop madness based chaos thinking and start thinking more methodically - I doubt it's just a random jumble.
    Quote from blueconcept
    Black Lotus is a vanilla creature. Deadbore is a counterspell. Artifacts are lands.

    Dungeons and Dragons is an operating system. Baldur's Gate is a magic card. Experience is reasoning. Reasoning is experience.

    I still dont know the 1st one, working on it, but its different from the 2nd, Land for now it seems.

    It seems like its some kind of: pay 1 to make any land a basic of your choice until end of turn. or something like that.

    Rupture Spire

    Land

    Rupture Spire comes into play tapped. When Rupture Spire comes into play sacrifice Rupture Spire unless you pay (1 life/mana?).
    Tap: Add one mana of any color to your mana pool.

    1 of what?

    So from cha0s's post, it is:
    Rupture Spire
    Land (unknown rarity, probably rare)
    ~ comes into play tapped.
    When ~ comes into play, sacrifice it unless you pay 1.
    T: Add one mana of any colour to your mana pool.

    OR

    Rupture Spire
    Land (unknown rarity, probably rare)
    ~ comes into play tapped.
    When ~ comes into play, sacrifice it unless you pay 1 life.
    T: Add one mana of any colour to your mana pool.

    Probably gonna get used with reflecting pool. Lots.
    With all, put the same thing except with / in front of what type of tags they are (like [/card]) to close them.
    Card: [card]
    Hybrid: :symub: = U/B mana order doesn't matter

    Spoiler: [spoiler]
    Deck: [deck]

    I agree. I personally don't play anything but lands in my decks, because almost everything else is hosed by Cancel.

    Here's what I've done so far on the first one, sometimes moving letters, sometimes re-arranging, keeping them in order...

    Original:

    UnaFrrLdTtd(1)rmoolpaanntontaetlandycrolindtotouhe baTatursicldtyrgpeofyontieourchoontceap

    Modified:

    UnaFrrLdTtd(1)rmoolpaannton target land you crolind to the basic land type of your cho ontceap

    Tatur

    ontie

    Something like... "target land you control becomes the basic land type of your choice."

    It must be mana, which would make it quite interesting. If it were life...it would be too good. However, it now seems hard to analyze, because it slows you down the turn you play it...but after that it's insane...

    I see 5 color control abusing this in standard.

    ew no way. Rupture Spire's art is pure Esper/Grxis. NO GREEN

    lame flavor wise if correct.

    5cc... pfft
    okay
    so whats the 2nd one?
  • #18
    Yes it is Mana. not life. I didn't get the rest of it. That first puzzle is a pain. I have 3 of my friends helping me figure it out...
  • #19
    working on first one.....its something like

    Turn Target Land you control into the basic land type of your choice until end of turn.

    UnaFrrLdTtd(1)rmoolpaanntontaetlandycrolindtotouhe baTatursicldtyrgpeofyontieourchoontceap unoutilestoytndofanapbletoaurn.

    So far I've been able to see within those letter these prashes/words: Until end of turn, Target, Mana Pool, You Control, Add Colorless, Tap...

    I think it may be something like "Add 1 to your mana when you tap a land you control for mana until end of turn"
    "In response to your Brainstorm, I use Vedalken Orrery to play Chains of Mephistopheles as an instant."

    I didn't say a second one... I guess whatever comes up to you. Thtas why the games called MAGIC! Anything could happen. :/

    Actually 5CC and Maybe a new "Zoo/Control" like in Ravnica will form? I just wish Glare of Subdual would be reprinted or remade on a new card...

    I guess I'm just underestimating the amount of free time some of you have. Now I'm getting a little aggravated. I may just have to spend more than 5 minutes on these puzzles.
