Magic: the Gathering in the UK

So part of the fun of formats is working out what is good and going through that learning curve.  Once you know everything it's less interesting.

One really good way to have things be unknown is to have new cards.  But that means someone has to invent them, or a new set has to be released.

Unless ... you play Chaos Badger!

I wrote a program that generates random cards by semi-intelligently "colliding" two existing cards.

Examples:

Raging Choker
1R
Creature Artifact - Cat
Haste

At the beginning of your end step, target opponent gains control of Raging Choker and puts a charge counter on it.
At the beginning of your upkeep, Raging Choker deals damage to you equal to the number of charge counters on it.
{3}: Put a charge counter on Raging Choker or remove one from it.
2/2

Darksteel Cohort
4G
Artifact Creature - Golem Treefolk Warrior
Flash
Vigilance
Darksteel Cohort is indestructible.

Darksteel Cohort gets +1/+1 as long as you control another green creature.
3/4

Linessa, Badger
2UG
Legendary Creature - Human Wizard Badger
{X}{U}{U}, {T}: Return target creature with converted mana cost X to its owner's hand.
Grandeur — Discard another card named Linessa, Badger: Target player returns a creature he or she controls to its owner's hand, then repeats this process for an artifact, an enchantment, and a land.

Whenever Linessa, Badger blocks, it gets +2/+2 until end of turn.
3/2

Living Mimic
3BU
Instant

As an additional cost to cast Living Mimic, sacrifice a creature.

Each player exiles all creature cards from his or her graveyard, then sacrifices all creatures he or she controls, then puts all cards he or she exiled this way onto the battlefield.

Search your library for a card with the same name as target nontoken creature and put that card onto the battlefield. Then shuffle your library.

War Wurm
5RGW
Enchantment Creature - Wurm
{X}{R}: This turn, creatures can't block unless their controller pays {X} for each blocking creature he or she controls.

Whenever War Wurm attacks, destroy all other creatures.
7/7

{B}: Regenerate Toxic Gardener.

When Toxic Gardener dies, destroy target land.

Devour 1 (As this enters the battlefield, you may sacrifice any number of creatures. This creature enters the battlefield with that many +1/+1 counters on it.)

OK OK I'll stop now!

How did you manage to get a 'Creature Instant'? Surely the Instants and Sorceries should have their own sections!

Way to obsolete all our hard work in the bakerverse!

Also I don't see a link?

How are you generating the mana costs? Some of them seem pretty crazy. Are you just adding half of each mana cost together?

Man of war/spawnbroker should be called manspawn broker.

Also this looks fun. Im back next friday. We should do this sometime after that

I see a serious chance of Chaos Badger derailing the Wednesday testing session :-)

No link, it's just running locally at the moment in a terminal.
