So, knew the scrambled bit was Greek, but I still tried to search for it directly in Google until I realized it was scrambled.

Since there are only 24 Greek letters as opposed to English's 26, I am going to assume that the English equivalent of each letter is that which produces the beginning consonant sound.

β = B(eta)... lowercase
Π = P(i)... uppercase
ο = O(micron)... lowercase
λ = L(ambda)... lowercase
ύ = U(psilon)... lowercase
ς = S(igma)... lowercase and final form (what does that indicate???)
ι = I(ota)... lowercase
ο = O(micron)... lowercase

So... what we have is bPolusio, assuming certain letters were capitalized on purpose.

BRB to cross-reference the spoiled [CON] list for matches.

Part 6:
For the first one I get something like 4,05 bla bla so I guess its a 4/? creature but what is the second part?
I have no clue how to convert that tons per second, kilogram per minute etc

Supporter of the theory 1+1=2 aka take the simple solution...:rolleyes:

By being wrong, apparently... I've left my original explanation intact, but, well, you get 3 colorless, not 19 colorless, and that's probably not the whole casting cost. Apparently it's actually 3RR.

Part 2. The symbols are clearly chemical elements; if we ignore the usual order of operations and just calculate left to right as he says, we get the number 19. (If we do try to do the ordinary order of operations, we end up with 38 instead, which is A. even more ridiculous and B. ignoring the instructions.)

(Guys, Y is 39; V is 23.)

Then we have "green ideas sleep furiously", clearly a reference to Noam Chomsky's famous sentence "colorless green ideas sleep furiously". So the missing word is "colorless". 19 colorless.

Now for the P/T... unfortunately the calculations given aren't really meaningful, because pure numbers are being mixed with dimensioned quantities, but if we assume that for the first one all distances should be thought of as numbers of feet, we get a power of 8. If we do yards, we get 4. This is once again computing left-to-right, as if we do the ordinary order of operations, we'll get a fraction.

For the toughness, assuming it's tons/day, well, whether you do it left-to-right or ordinary order, either way you get a fraction... but rounding, we get 4 if it's left-to-right, and 1 if you do ordinary order.

So its power is probably 8 or 4, and its toughness is probably 4 or 1, more likely 4 for consistency. Which seems decidedly underwhelming for something costing 19, but there's still the rest of the card...

Part 6:

It's 3 - 1 x 3 - 2. Doing from left to right (so NOT the usual order of precedence), we get 4.

I think that's a lowercase beta. Also, we can be certain the sigma goes at the end, because that's the final form of a lowercase sigma.

Thanks. I'm not Greek.

Note: Wording may vary slightly.

Oh, crap. It seems everyone's making calculation errors... it's actually 3, and later posts point out that that's not the whole mana cost.

...and later posts show that it's actually 3RR.

How do you get a mana cost of 19?

Thanks to Le_Gambit for the Amazing Sig.

are we supposed to figure out what they have in common?

british film stars... so?

Glad your not a detective. You have no idea what the rest says. It could be amazing and you are jumping to conlusions based on the mana cost alone.

So, knew the scrambled bit was Greek, but I still tried to search for it directly in Google until I realized it was scrambled.

Since there are only 24 Greek letters as opposed to English's 26, I am going to assume that the English equivalent of each letter is that which produces the beginning consonant sound.

λ = L(ambda)... lowercase

ύ = U(psilon)... lowercase

ς = S(igma)... lowercase and final form (what does that indicate???)

ι = I(ota)... lowercase

ο = O(micron)... lowercase

Though this was only discovered after we'd already figured out that the card was a dragon and thus "Devouring Dragon." =P

Only problem is if you proceed L to R, you get a decimal.

26 / 6 - 4 ??

Yes, but he said proceed directly from L to R, which would make it (26 / 6) - 4 or roughly 1/3.

but keanu reaves is in that... wait, no

that makes sense
