[CDC] Useless but fun [CLOSED]

(1/5) > >>

NatoPotato:
Design a card that is “useless” or non-advantageous yet very cool to play during a match.

We all know how useless Puffy the goldfish is! Yet I love using him, torturing him with new card combos and experiments, but most of all, taking my sweet sweet time beating him. Maybe that’s just me.
Regardless, that lovable fish gave me the idea for this next challenge.

Non-advantageous in this case means to not give a player advantage over another.
The card can be any card type or purity. Free range!
The card should not be annoying in that it would make players have a bad experience or ruin a match. That said, the card can have good or bad affects (advantageous or inconvenient for both players) as long as it doesn’t unjustifiably disrupt a match.

If a player during a match finds a way to make use of the “useless” or non-advantageous card, kudos to them, but the card should be designed not to give a player advantage over another as previously stated.

I am curious to see how useless, funny, cool, tragic or even bizarre you can make your card.

Hope you have fun with this challenge,

WolfLionHead

Deadline is May 7th 2018

Location

You no longer draw the top card of your deck, instead you draw the second card.
Exhaust: Gain one Soldier of Fortune in your hand. You don't draw a card at the start of next turn.

Cavalry Paladin: Where did I put my motorcycle. Better look harder.
Cavalry Paladin: Wait Soldier of Fortune what are you doing in my garage?

NatoPotato:
Counterfeit Cards
Factionless
Rare
2 cost
Unique Mission

Exhaust: Select a faction and a premium type (options include default and random), all cards you control (in play or not) gain the selected factions border, become the selected premium type and have their art displayed upside-down until the end of the game.

"Dude, look how many holographics I've got!"



Aside from messing around with the purely cosmetic qualities of the cards for puffies and giggles it would also let people see how it would look to have a full premium deck.

This cards resource cost is lowered by nothing because then it wouldnt have the best numbers.

Instead of paying this cards resource cost you may instead sacrifice 3 ultra units. If this card were to enter the deployed area through any means other than resource cost paid or 3 ultraunits sacrificed, then return this card to your hand.

Consume 100, Flying, Reach, Untouchable, Shield 10, multistrike 15, Indestructible, Infect

Cannot be removed from the game.

Additional rules text is added to this card each time a new card is printed to ensure that this card has the most rules text out of any card in existence.

The rules text added is as follows: "this card is still the best". This phrase will be repeated until this card has the most rules text out of any card.

(a card with infinite attack will always kill anything it does damage to including the fortress [assuming the card receiving the damage can die to combat damage])

infinite/1000

This card will add flavor text each time a card comes out just like the rules text rule.

The above mentioned flavor text will not actually happen because it is flavor text and not rules text and also because it would probably cause way too many bugs.

Possibly playable but unlikely so.

Communications Blackout
1p gi + 1p exiles
6 cost
Mission

When you deploy Communications Blackout, move all deployed cards to the support zone. Turn all cards in play face down, then randomly rearrange their positions. Cards deployed while this is in play are turned face down. No player may look at face down cards. Deployed cards remain face down as long as this mission is in play.

Mission: Anyone deploys a card.

Completion 10
---

Face down cards retain original stats and abilities unless indicated otherwise. They will still fight you just wont know their power and health or abilities unless you look at them (which this card doesnt allow).

Keywords still happen, a character with charge will still deploy in the assault zone, but now the opponent doesnt know what it is... and if you get mixed up you might forget what it is. basically the turn just resolves as normal except you cant tell what's fighting what.

Discard and then resurrect from the grave for a op card. But you can add to the card text to prevent that and make the rules text even more bloated.
