I find it interesting how similar the results of this are to the results of my old random Magic card BNF generator, even though they're derived in pretty much opposite ways: my generator is hand-crafted top-down with an intricate knowledge of (pre-M10) Oracle templating and rules structure, while the neural network is completely naive, just building up what patterns it can observe from the existing Oracle text of all cards.

The early cards are hilariously non-sensical, but when it started making more coherent stuff, it's actually very interesting to see when it gets close to something printable.

Not too much input to give, but the idea is pretty cool, and I hope more work is put into it.

fuseback seems like a sweet mechanic
