TTC 77 - Fate Reforged Nicknames

Postby Graham » 13 Mar 2015, 17:10

By popular demand, Graham takes Kathleen and Alex through every card in FRF and assigns nicknames to all of them. Some are less good than others.

I'm very sad that "Old Man Daghatar" hasn't propagated to a point where it was the nickname here, but not really surprised.

I'm partial to "The Leader of the Bunch" for Tasigur.

Because bananas.

So many good nicknames, Sage-Eye Avengers and Whisperer of the Wilds being my favorites! Still, Mardu Scout will always be Goblin Brah to me.

So good! Sage-Eye Avengers takes the cake for me, it just works on so many levels. Happy to hear nickname podcasts will be for every set going forward, always so much fun.

As for other nicknames, I like "You're Grounded" for Return to the Earth and "Honey Badger" for Arashin War-Beast (that stance!).

This is hilarious - looking forward to seeing these for future sets. "Bouncy Castle" was probably my favorite. Although, shouldn't Soulfire Grand Master be "Grandmaster Flash Lifelink"?

That's a really good point about Weave Fate fitting the previous block better. I wonder if this has ever led to: "Hello, Wizards of the Coast Customer service? I found a card from Theros in my pack of Fate Reforged."

"Bouncy Castle" and "Prowess for Dummies" were probably the best.

The forum had previously come up with "Dog Confidant" for Abzan Beastmaster, which I thought was better than G's one, but he did suggest on Twitter "Dog, from Accounting", which is also pretty damn good.

I like Flame On! or The Efreet Torch for Smoldering Efreet and "Well I'm Dead To It Anyway" for War Flare

At our store, I have successfully spread the use of "Batman" for Smoldering Efreet and "my friend, Will, of the Naga" for Will of the Naga. I believe he's mentioned in the flavor text of Friendly Fire.

Just watched this, because I don't know why it took me so long, and really enjoyed it!
When I saw/heard 'Get the Band Back Together' for 'Rally the Ancestors' I could only think that it should be 'Get the Sand Back Together', since there is so much sand in the card art.

also @steric hindrance:
I hear that Will guy is really forceful.

Really good episode with a bunch of literally laugh-out-loud moments.

I have one but it's not really meant to be funny, more of a cute pet name, but I've always called Frontier Mastodon "Phanpy."

The Booster I sent LRR was Weatherlight, which actually makes me wish that I *had* made a custom pack of the goofiest crap cards I own. :P
