I was going to make a deck, inspired by Ice Cauldron, that was entirely cards that fill their text box. One of my friends recently told me frustration is a win con and I want to make him suffer for it, so now he has to read my paragraphs.
Ideally, it's cards that have had to have had their text size changed.
So.... I was bored and created these two lists. I forgot about the Planechase Anthology cards.
Since different printings will cause the text to expand or contract due to how Wizards likes to mess around with things, I examined each individual printing and noted that printing here. More to the point, if there were two printings with identical text, I chose one.
Due to how cards are typically kept in databases, non alphanumeric characters such as mana symbols count as three characters. In addition some cards have font markup (such as italics), I made no effort to strip that out either. I also didn't filter out unsets or er... that set that no one ever really plays, Planechase? Whatever....
I'm also enjoying the info, as I'm working on an alexander clamilton list. Which might be a good option for a commander for you as well, samzeman, if you don't mind playing an un-commander (and restricting yourself to 2 colors).
Akroma, Angel of Wrath (original printing, as Vigilance was not a keyword yet).Okay this one isn't as wordy as others, but it does require the reader to know what all of those things mean within the context of the game.
