MicroBalrog
July 23, 2003, 09:44 AM
Well, MicroBalrogs are great for sneak sabotage attack on antis.
Being small, cute, and liberal, they may infiltrate anti societies and slowly convert them or make them doubt their convictions.:D

Or, as I always explain my nick: "you know the difference between Uzi and Micro-Uzi? Balrog and MicroBalrog are the same. I'm just more discreet and concealable."

You think I merit a card?

Here's a pic for you to use if you want to make a card.

I gotta disagree with other pumpgunners getting a penalty when Dave McCracken is in play. His teachings should give all of your shotgunners a bonus.

I respectfully propose:
First Strike
Shotgunner: Dave McCracken may block flying creatures. Tap to do 3 damage to target flying creature.
Instructor: All shotgunners under your control gain +1/+0.
Oh, and he should be a Legend. :)

Before I got sick i used to play MTG a lot. I still have a 50 caliber can full of the cards. Anyone in NJ interested in them? If so send me a PM. I dont use them anymore. They're from Unlimited through 6th.

Edited to add that i cannot give them away due to the money i have invested in them, however I have no use for them so I will let them go at the best offer. I appologize to the moderators, didnt mean for this to happen. Either send me a PM or an E-mail.

The fiancee brought home one of those meal deals from KFC with a half-gallon of Diet Coke.. I got so busy doing those cards I wasn't paying attention, and drank the whole dang thing. Brilliant.

Skunk: I didn't know Kirk had a web site, I may redo his card.

As for Dave.. excellent points. Look for the Revised Edition soon ;)


EDIT: for those of you that have no idea what we're spoofing, check here (http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=mtgcom/welcome) for information about the game. I have to admit to being pretty hard core from 1993 to about 1997.

George Hill
July 23, 2003, 08:16 PM
Where are the following cards?

LawDog, with the power of stunning quips and the ability to summon lovestruck fuzzy animals... +3 vs Saint Nick or other Holiday Avatars.

Correia, with his 200 yard headshots? +3 vs Maniquins and Tornados. - 1 vs Tents.

Tropical Z? Summons Ugly Chunk of Pistol. Stuns all other players for 1 round.

Mike Irwin - Summon Anti-S&W Bevet. +3 vs S&W.

The rest of the THR crew is going to take a little longer, for a couple reasons: card art has to be created, as opposed to just grabbing a photo off their web site. Also, I don't know as much about some of these other folks, so smart-assed flavor text may be harder to come by :)

I'm committed though.. this is fun.

I can not believe so many people play Magic the Gathering. I still have a large collection of revised, fallen empire, fourth, etc from that time period, about five years ago.

For those wondering, the colors and numbers in the upper right are what is needed to cast or summon the card from your hand.

The lower right is attack/defence for creatures.

There are five colors(elements), and some multi color, and colorless cards.

It is a fun, but expensive game, you spend about 10 cents for each card give or take which adds up.

This gets the CSLINGER seal of approval. Well almost, where is the Holy SIGs card. All those enchanted with SIGs get a +1 to attack and +1 extra turn due to reliability.

We need SIGs in this game.

How about a The Cult of the P7 card. Black card cult member. The possibilites are endless.

Still waiting for the LawDog card.

Coronach needs a card. Something about spit polished leather and starched white police uniforms. Coronach - His own parade. Something like that.

CR SAM needs a card. Old gaffer with a cane and about a dozen large framed wheelguns hidden on him and in his beard.

A few more... and I will print them all out. Okay... maybe not... but these are still funny. I don't understand the numbers or little icons. I've never played Magic. But I do get a good joke.

Unfortunately, in Vasconcellos' case it WAS temporary. But John Burton held up, which was amazing enough.

There's going to be armageddon in Senate Approps though. I can prove lies were told in the previous committee.

I don't do Photoshop, and yall would probably not like my attempts at "art", but some more card ideas:

"Excessive Tacticallity"
White, two manna casting cost
Caption: Becoming overly clever, the Leader of the Mall Ninja outsmarts himself.
Effect: Causes Skunkabilly to become tapped with no other effect.

"Too Much Gun"
Red, three manna casting cost
Caption: Having attached superfluous accessories to their gatage, the Mall Ninja need to sit down and quietly recover.
Effect: All Mall Ninja or creature cards with two or more Tactical cards attached may attact with +3 this turn only. All cards used in such fashion do not automatically untap at the end of this turn, but may do so at the end of the next turn. Discard 1 Tactical card.

"We need bigger guns..." part I
Blue, two manna casting cost. Picture is of a Sharps falling block.
Caption: For those occassions when .308 just won't cut it...Sharps .50-120
Effect: Instant. Give one attacking card a +3 bonus for any one attack. Discard after use.

"We need bigger guns..." part II
Black, two manna
Caption: Holland & Holland .700 Nitro Express Double Rifle.
Effect: Gives a single card, with NO Tactical Accessories, two attacks at +4 for one turn. Both cards then are put in graveyard due to mortgaged house, depleted bank account, and fractured collarbone.

"Return of Mikey"
Black, one manna
Caption: Some...persons...gave the overweight twit money for another propaganda film.
Effect: Half of the opposing players cards that posess Common Sense and/or any Gun become tapped while they go in search of asprin and a quiet place to lie down.

"Keystone Cops"
Red, 2 manna
Caption: Hehehehe...now you are subjet to your own rules, dammit.
Effect: Use on opponent who has "Dianne Feinstein" in play. All of his useful and/or entertaining cards are shuffeled back into his library and cannot be used (and must be returned to his library, not discarded) until "Dianne Feinstein" is removed from play and burnt in front of onlookers.

Summon staunch defender of the mini-14 and mossberg 500

Tap, pay three colorless. target player who talks smack about the mini-14 for being innaccurate is treated to a rant about how the mini-14 is a fantastic carbine that handles better than any ar-15 variant.

Tap, pay 1 red, target player who says bad things about the mossberg gets challenged to a tactical COF.

I'll run a tactical COF against you and your oh so superior defender any day.

Bogie, since it would take all day for you to set up your wind flags and rest, and then you'd only fire 5 shots at 200 yards, you'd only get a -1/-1. If you bring voodoo equipment it gets worse.


Sorry bub.
