Flavor text quizzish thing

Postby Atomic » Sun May 23, 2004 3:12 pm

I like flavor text myself... for example,
Sometimes it's possible to pull a meal out of thin air. - Silk Net
Now... anyway... can you geuss what card this one's from?

Perception is more pleasing than truth.

when someone geusses it i'll post another one...

Hehe I have no idea but if I guess the color it's from will that count? I think it is from a blue card because blue is control and likes to change the perception of what cards really are... or maybe I'm totally wrong. ><

Hehe, well at least someone took a shot at it... i suppose if you're close i'll count it :P No, actually, it's not blue. It's white. The card is Erase. (It's one kickass card, btw.)

Here's another one. (Geuss color, name, anything about it... also since the flavor text of cards is one of my favorite parts, post your fav. flav. texts.)

There's no difference between bone and crystal when it's piercing your throat.

That's right!

Hmm... sounds red to me. Either red or black. Fallen Angel perhaps?

Ok, it was Bottle Gnomes from Mirrodin.

How about this one. I'll try to keep it relatively recent. I'll give you a color even, it's white...:

That is the Glory Seeker, a 1/1white soldier I believe.



Try this one

Obviously blue....
Dog carcass in alley this morning, tire tread on burst stomach. This city is afraid of me. I have seen it's true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"...

...and I'll look down, and whisper "no."

I'm not sure... ray of command perhaps? Can you give us a set?

WHile we puzzle that one out, here's one i found cool. It's the 8th Edition card Curiosity.

Mine was an 8Ed blue card called Puppeteer.

I have no idea... Visions you say? i never saw much of that set, i have a few cards but not enough to even represent a collection.
try something a little newer... perhaps Tempest? or even newer, like Nemesis, or Torment...

Heres a couple from Fifth Dawn (my friends and i just bought and split a booster box 4 ways, so i have a bunch):

Perhaps he shuns technology. Perhapsy he appreciates nature. Perhaps he doesn't know the difference.

There's know word in the goblin language for "strategy." Then again, there's no word in the goblin language for "word."

Goblin cards always have funny flavor text... but that's all the hints you're getting... what cards, anyone?

(One more, from Nemesis: "I am the romancer, the passion that consumes the flesh." ---Seal inscription --Seal of Fire)
