Community Mashup Set: Cardlist | Visual spoiler | Export | Booster | Comments | Search | Recent activity

This cardset is dedicated to the kind of design challenge known as Mash-ups. The way a mash-up works is: you select two cards and try to create one card that contains elements of both of them, combined into a reasonably elegant whole. A common way of selecting cards is randomly: to select a random printed card, you can use the Gatherer Random Card button. If you want to use Multiverse cards in your random selection, you can use Multiverse's random cards function.

This cardset is free for anyone to create cards, so feel free to mash away! It's a good way to keep your card design skills exercised. Post in the comments what the source cards were.

When Two-tone generator enters the battlefield choose any number of your other artifacts. An opponent chooses to put a shield counter either on all the ones you selected, or on all the others.
Artifacts with shield counters are indestructible.

Landfall – whenever you put a land into play Ragoth, Coralhelm Dragon deals 2 damage to all non-dragon creatures.
The retreat was shattered, the city became part of his hoard.

Trampling Creature – Elephant
When Elephantine Korvax enters the battlefield, distribute four -1/-1 counters among creatures you control; choosing no more than those creature's toughness.
When a creature blocked by Korvax dies, you may remove a -1/-1 counter from it.

On Cabalizer:

­Cabal Shrine + Channel Lightning

"Stop doing the same thing over and over" black enchantment; and red... spark I think? That's fiddly - stops lifegain, and then deals 1 damage a turn until you use a card.

So.. voluntarily stop doing anything, please?

On Aven Dreamship:

True, it maybe should be each colour gaining a different thing.

On Aven Dreamship:

Hm. Yes. A sensible tweak on the Kraken's Eye cycle of lucky charms (Angel's Feather, Demon's Horn etc). It's... been done once or twice, but not in a way that fits into the lucky charms cycle slot: Kor Firewalker is mainly a colour-hoser, Sol'Kanar the Swamp King is a weird three-colour legend, and Apothecary Initiate was in a different cycle.

So yes, I could definitely see this cycle happening. I'm not sure if it'd come across as a bit of a colour pie bend, though. Blue cards are allowed to care about blue spells, but not normally meant to gain life (even though artifacts can). Maybe that's why Wizards haven't done this.

On Aven Dreamship:

­Abyssal Specter + Kraken’s Eye

Huh, Ice Age, and a spell from a set that's deliberately trying to be 4th edition. Nice.

Anyway, a powered down Hypnotic Specter (can't cast it turn-1 off a single Black Ritual, and 1 extra toughness doesn't stop it dying to Lightning Bolt) and blue life-gain artifact.

I could try "Even Alpha would have though twice about printing this" with "Whenever a player casts a {b/u} spell, target player discards a card"

But yeah, not fun.

Could put lifegain-on-spell on a creature? You know, that feels like a thing that should be done. The life-gain-spell-rocks were always quite well liked by new players, but never lasted long once people started needing to trim their decks. As a small-bonus on a creature? More likely to find deck-space I think.

Modern-style makes this only your creatures. I think we're done here.

On Two-tone generator:

That's the "Secretly on your team" part.

On Two-tone generator:

I see 5/0 splits off of FoFs all the time in multiplayer formats

On Two-tone generator:

­Steam Augury + Gensto Mines

Huh. Draw up to the worst 4 of the top five cards; or the best one; opponents choice. (Or a 2/3 split, or a 0/5 if your opponent is asleep or secretly on your team or something)

And a land that regenerates artifacts.

A loot-land?

Regenerate the top two artifacts in your deck?

Select some, but not all, of your artifacts to shield? I like that.

On Ragoth, Coralhelm Dragon:

­Retreat to Coralhelm + Territorial Dragon

Noice. All landfall is also Twiddle or Scry.

Plus... a 4/4 flash dragon that burninates attackers on ETB.

Landfall dragon? Reading the comments, the idea was supposed to be a dragon that defends its territory. So that fits.

Four damage on landfall is a bit much. Let's down it to 2 (in a landfall set, that's probably still too much; but 1 just doesn't LOOK splashy.)

... uh; all OTHER creatures. Dragons don't typically set themselves on fire.

Ah heck with it; let's make it really breakable. All non-dragons.

Suitably legendary name; and some flavourtext.

On Elephantine Korvax:

­Deep-Sea Kraken + Infected Roots

I do have a fondness for the big blue stompies. This one is actually really good, because it usually comes out about the time you could normally cast it. And is just flat out "6 damage a turn till you kill it"

And a forest that can explicitly make colourless, and it ETB tapped unless you -1/-1 a creature you control. So it exists in "play shenanigans with -1 counters" world; but ugh do I have loathing for explicit colourless.

A big green stompy that comes out faster if you throw around some -1 counters? That feels reasonable. Although green gets relative cheap stompies anyway.

Green does trample instead of unblockable. And... damnit, for some reason I want to call this "Corvax" but that is, of xcourse,a bird - and green really shouldn't get 8/8 trampling fliers :)

I guess this is sort of 'champion' (or some kind of freaky inverse modular). And... ugh. The simple wording "When ~ ETBs, distribute four -1/-1 counters among creatures you control." doesn't prevent you from just bunging them all on a sacrificial 0/1 token.

I want "Ok, 4/4 trample is good enough right now" to be an option, when the alternative is wiping out your four utility creatures. Bleh. "Such that they don't die" probably isn't template.

Ah well, words that convey the intent used; Werner von Browning the rest.

So here we go. 8/8 for... five? I'd like to say 4 - but that's probably pushing it too far; even if it IS only 4/8 really.

I think I want to push it slightly though. Flavour is some kind of big hungry thing. Either it's fed and healthy; or it's unfed and withered itself. So let's be explicit, and give you a way to feed it up after it ETBs too. That may not tie up quite nicely enough; but it's sure stompy.

"When a creature damaged by ~ dies; put a +1/+1 counter on ~."

Ugh; I just used +1 and -1 counters not only in the same set; but on the same card. Despite the sneakiness of it, that's a big no-no. We'll just remove the counters instead; that's probably clearer flavour anyway. And means you now maybe want to play risk games with it "I can keep more power on the table long term by weakening it as it comes into play... but will it survive to get bigger?"

Too many words for a green rare; really. But most of them are ETB. Make text box saner by using my "Let's move keywords to the type line" tech previous seen on Pegasaur Archer

On Wind Stoker:

Been a while; lets do another one.

­Wind Sail + Incense Stoker

A Jump variant, and... a creature that says that opponents aren't allowed to have cards on your turn any more.

A card that says creatures cannot gain flying? Pretty niche.

Whenever you cast a spell, also jump a creature? That seems niche and also useful. Flavour is presumably "A wizard does it". Though spring-heeled jack is tempting, that's just "This creature jumps when you cast a spell" which pre-exists.

Text box could almost be "Splice flying onto non-creature spells." But, yeah, this isn't my set, it's the mashup set, let's spell it out.
