Challenge # 143
Design a card with a mechanic fitting a previously suggested name

For an entry:

  • Choose a mechanic name from a previous entry
  • Design a card using a new mechanic with that name
  • Give a new mechanic name for people to use (feel free to skip this if there are several already unused)


  • You can re-use mechanic names if you think it's interesting, either making a new card with the same mechanic another player invented, or making a card with a different mechanic with the same name
  • Feel free to change the exact word form of the names, eg. verb to noun or vice versa. Mechanic can mean keyword, ability word (or something else if it seems appropriate).
  • Most of the mechanics will probably only be used once, it's usually easier to not add them as a mechanic in this cardset, but just write out the reminder text on the card (or in the comment if you design a rare card and don't think there would be reminder text).
  • Some of the names will not be a perfect fit for a mechanic, or accidentally duplicate an existing but little used magic mechanic. That's fine, just fit it as best you can and don't worry about it.

I made Flashing Forgeling.

New mechanic words:

• Corrupt
• Burden

­Perfect Spark using Eidetic

I created Examine the Data.

New words:

• Initiate
• Translate
• Buffer
• Longing

Ooh, I like your recur.

Can you give fewer new names for further entries? I really like all the names you've suggested, but I don't want the pool to just keep getting bigger.

Yes, sorry. :-) I'll skip new words for my next several entries.

­Grimmer Bolt with Eidetic. Sparkfire with recur.

Used 'Limit Break' in Arvil, the Hurler. Adding 'Elastic'.

­Rubber Band, with Elastic.

­Escaped Rager with Unlock.

Adding keyword: Rite

Used 'Corrupt' with Ungodly Oathdealer. Adding 'Mummified' to the mix.

Oops, crossover, Phyrexian Mass also with Corrupt.

­Spell Familiar using Initiate

And adding: Gargantuan

­Shotgun Blast with Burst.

Adding: Mastery (ignore the similarity to "Spell Mastery")

Added Practiced Learning using Mastery.

Used 'Burden' on Stalwart Shield. Adding 'Unintelligible'.

­Shaman's Secret Flame with Unintelligible

­Cursed Sword with Burden

Adding keyword: Anticipate.

And we're running lower on keywords that weren't made by me again so feel free to suggest a few extra, if we aim to keep the total number of unused between 3 and 10?

I would like to point out that Burst, Rite, Mastery, and Unintelligible have all been used at least once.

I added Limitless Angel, using Limit Break.

New Word: Pace

Added Automatic Crossbow, using 'Burst' one more time.

New Words: 'Royalty' and 'Unobtanium'.

­Wild Scion with Royalty

Used 'Pace' on Otarian Axehurl. Adding 'Forbidden' and 'A Horrible Night for a Curse'.

And just to make sure we don't stagnate on names, I'll also add in 'Justice' and 'Bumper Crop'.

­Garden Tender with Bumper Crop.

ETA: And Apple of Embiggening with a different version of Bumper Crop.

­Gentle Reminder using Justice.

­Censored Knowledge using Forbidden. I'd like to add in "Hatred" and "Subvert"

­Elder Spawnling also using Forbidden

­A Horrible Death with "A horrible night for a curse"

­Flitterspy using Subvert

I created Daring Trickster, using "Subvert."

­Horrible Burning another horrible night for a curse.
