Vorthos Volleyball

Postby chetoos » 17 Apr 2016, 10:22

This is a game that I found on Tumblr, and I figured it could be applied to the forums too. Here's a link to the rules for the game, so with that said, I think we should theme this around Shadows Over Innistrad, at least to start off with.

Now, to begin:
Question: Why does the Pyre Hound get counters from instants and sorceries?
Flavor Text: Westvale Cult Leader (Bonus points if you make it thematically match the Hanweir militia leader's flavor text)

Question: You know that cold spot on your neck? That one that you feel behind you right now? But when you turn, it's nothing? That's a Geist, sneaking up on you.

Question: Milling is representative of you losing your mind in certain ways, since your library is your memories or whatever, so the Manic Scribe's writing, he comes with a set of his writing, and it makes you go a bit mad, which causes you to mill, and when he's delirious, he's just manically writing down whatever he can, which is what causes the milling every turn.
Flavor Text: "They say you can still hear the rattle of chains at the old jailer's house at the top of the hill."

Question: Because the experience you're feeling from seeing the Mindwrack demon, the creeping insanity in your brain, you already feel when you are delirious, so you're used to it.

Question: They're led by Niv-Mizzet, and if you think for one second he would let the plane be destroyed, you're as insane as some of the izzet. As for taking over, the guildpact prevents that, as does the fact that, as smart and powerful as he likely is, the other guilds would definitely step in to stop him.
Flavor Text: "You're farming what?"

Question: If Kytheon hadn't planeswalked to Bant his first time, do you think he would be RW, instead of just W?

Q: Because she takes those without energy and gets rid of them. Enchantments don't have the energy to resist, so they don't need to be tapped.
Flavor Text: If you don't tie yourself down to any one faction, you're free to find things from all of them.

Q: Why does the divinity of pride's edge not grant any kind of abilities that it has, aside from the getting bigger?

Q: The divinity has a serious superiority complex and can't be bothered to give the creture any abilities. (Seriously. The *Divinity* of *Pride.*)

Question: The Mirari is a very powerful artifact, and even its wake is enough to increase the mana generated from lands, and increase the power of the creatures who travel through its wake. Think of it like magical steroids from the air.

Question: In his efforts to hold back the future, he has unleashed magic that tries to keep things from changing. Change is at the very heart of morphing and is therefore harder to do.

Question: Mageta is a spellshaper, so he has access to powerful magics. The spell he has is unstable, which is why it requires two cards to be discarded, and is simply meant to utterly destroy all creatures within a specific radius of him, likely by purifying light, since he's white. He can't control it well enough to avoid his allies, but as he is casting it, he is immune.

Question: He uses the latent energy of the aura attached to him to make the saprolings. However, he can only do it each upkeep because that's how long it takes for the auras to recharge. He's only adept enough to make one each turn, though, which is why he doesn't get 1 for each aura. If he's not enchanted, there's no auras to draw energy from

I'll give this one a wack.

Question: Her sword clearly glows, she is getting her bonus from channeling your magic (the enchantment) through her sword. The sword is simply a conduit for your magic and her focused discipline, another sword wouldn't help her.
Flavor Text: "Her destiny is to stop evil, should evil ever manage to stop her, another will pick up her destiny."

Question: Why does you simply owning a enchantment make Blood-Cursed Knight more vamperic (Stronger, gains life drain)?
