On Silver bordered and/or joke cards (reply):

Also, Rourke's comment about this set being 'un-believable' made me think that is what this set (or the next Un-set Wizards does) should be called: Unbelievable.

When Amazon Starbait enters the battlefield, write a 'G' next to its casting cost. Amazon Starbait's casting cost is increased by {g} forever. (Forever ever.)

If you would play Rock, Paper, Scissors, you may throw with an extra hand and ignore one of those results.

Hexproof, Menace
When you cast Deckrunner Jerix, shuffle it face-up into target opponent's library. When that opponent would draw Deckrunner Jerix, instead they put it onto the battlefield under your control and each player draws a card.

On Hydra Hail!:

Strange aside: If you pay {6}{g}, you could choose to get a 1/1 Hydra with five +0/+0 counters on it. I'm just saying.

On Hydra Hail!:

I don't know. I guess this is what I'm doing right now.

[Edit. Originally was an enchantment that included this line: "At the end of combat, put a +1/+1 counter on each Hydra that was dealt combat damage this turn." It helped the Marvel Hydra theme, but chafed against the +Z/+Z counters. In the end, I decided I liked the +Z counters better.]

On Amazon Starbait:

I just right now got that the G is supposed to be green mana -.-"

I like the ridiculousness of this card - really represents the theme well. Would be interesting in a Cube as a card you will remember as once been a first pick "back in the days". ^^

EDIT: Btw, before reading your initial comment I thought the "G" was a reference to "GS cards" and similar gimicks from the Pokémon card game and Yu-Gi-Oh! where those cards can be super powerful but quickly forgotten with new releases.

Still felt appropriate.

On Amazon Starbait:

Yeah, this would definitely benefit from a custom frame. It's a pleasingly broken card :)

On Amazon Starbait:

Came up with the mechanic first, then doubled back and added the flavor. If it's not obvious, the flavor is based on an annoying phenomenom on Amazon in which people rate the quality of their products within the first couple of weeks of receiving them. This disincentives sellers to make products that last more than six months.

Originaly, I wanted to name this '★★★★★ Amazon' (Five Star Amazon). But when I put the name in the field, I had to admit that it probably hurt the joke more than it helped it. Could have been the first card in alphabetical order in Multiverse. Oh well.

Oh also, when templated, the casting cost on this card should be shifted as far to the left as possible so there's more space to write all the 'G's. I tried adding the casting cost to the name, but there's no way to force a {g} symbol in Multiverse's name field.

On Krark's Other Other Thumb:

Love it. Just... perfect.

On Krark's Other Other Thumb:

Was thinking about Krark's Other Thumb, and if Wizards did another Un-set, what else they could do. The artwork should depict a severed big-toe from a goblin. I tried to find an appropriate image already out there, but alas.

The tail end of the flavor text is referencing Firestorm. Not sure why I felt it important to include that. I miss him.

On Deckrunner Jerix:

Dunno, I think the cyberpunk / no literally, it's in your deck - pun is pretty good, personally.

On Deckrunner Jerix:

AKA, how I feel Letter Bomb should have worked. Flavor is supposed to be a S.N.E.A.K. Agent who infiltrates your opponent's library and returns with intel, but I couldn't come up with a good name to get that across; I'm open to suggestions.

On Marit Smol:

I forgot they were right back to back. Well, if I'd been plugged in to the gossip to have heard about it, I'm sure I WOULD have been rooting for Marit Lage. That wouldn't be a good choice, because lots of players weren't playing ten years ago, but those who were would have loved it (at least I would). But when they're trying to build up a narrative for players who don't know a lot of lore, the story is almost always going to be the "big obvious" one, whether I want it or not.

(I wish there were more stories where I'm really invested in which goes which way, e.g. battles between planeswalkers where people might legitimately root for either, rather than leaning on "destruction of the plane", but I understand why that doesn't happen so much)
