    EDIT:

    The puzzle remains unsolved, but the card is now known.


    Nyxathid 1BB
    Creature - Elemental (R)
    As ~ comes into play, choose an opponent.
    ~ gets -1/-1 for each card in the chosen player's hand.
    7/7

    I will not reveal the puzzle's secret for now, so that those who want to try to be the first to solve it can do so. If it remains unsolved, I may reveal it or use the same puzzle for a future card. If they so desire, the mods can move discussion of the card or discussion of the puzzle to a separate thread.

    (Note: There are no spaces or lines in the puzzle. It's just a string of mana symbols.)

    I wonder if the diagonal line we can see towards the right is related to the solution
    Quote from "DarthQueeg" »

    Then, based on the patterns as determined by Roklar, the Lizard Lord, praise be to His name, I shuffle accordingly.

    Only 2 things that I can point out is the diagonal line going from top-right and the fact that the 2nd last line doesn't have any snow symbol.
  • #9
    There are spaces here and there, and he's using 6 symbols. Some of the "blocks" of symbols(by block, I mean "one sequence of symbols divided from another sequence by a space") are OVER 26 symbols long. So this is no simple alphanumeric puzzle.

    There it is without mana tags. I'm guessing another cypher, given the spaces.

    I didn't just wake up, but I can kinda see it too...I tried outlining it in paint, but it feels like we're missing something...maybe it's something beyond just the blue symbols.

    It's not a Magic Eye as far as I can tell.

    I sure hope it's a good card with this puzzle.

    I'm thinking about this can match to some game where :symr::symr::symg::symb::symb: could mean 2r g 2b...or maybe this could be a color code for some existant game too...

    If this is correct, the ability is characteristic setting - it works as is. Nyxathid will change size as your opponent loses or gains cards in hand.

    So, there are 25 blocks of symbols(without the last one), and each block is 50 symbols long.

    There are 6 symbols.

    The last block is only 10 symbols long.

    I'm not too sure I want to believe that.

    I think definitely the line shows a pattern exists, but don't get caught up on it going from the top-right because on my browser it is coming from top-left.
  • #23
    I took a look at it again, and I'm still seeing patterns jump out at me with the Island mana symbols, but it almost looks like mirror-writing, but I had to ask myself if fnord would really make it THAT difficult to read?

    -_- And people still Ignore the previous posts on it being solved. Knew the riddle things would be bad idea.

    On the supposive spoiled card: Its too MEH. Its only good if your playing against someone that dumps there hand quickly. Outside of that It is just bad.

    It hasn't been solved. That unconfirmed info from another sight. Once Fnord posts and says that accurate, we can stop trying to solve it, otherwise its still on.

    No. It's a great card. Bring back black discard decks - megrim + Nyxathid + Fugue (and I never thought I'd say that when I first saw it. With thoughtseize and Blightning, this is looking tantalisingly like a fourth turn 7/7 with then right discard to go along with it. Maybe a Relic to preserve the graveyard hate.

    In the meantime, I'm not going to even think about solving that code. Good luck to anyone else, I recommend you start with the current rumour and either prove or disprove it.

    Im gonna believe the unofficial info for now and say that I really like it. Great addition to Blightning.dec. Im sure it will turn out to be something completely different. A man can dream though. A man can dream. /farnsworth
