Entropy
Cost: BB3
Summon Master of N00bie Slapdown
5/2

When Entropy comes into play, tap all n00b cards. Those cards do not untap in their controller's untap phase.

1, tap: Destroy target n00b card.

I think it should be "B, tap" to restrict it a little.

B as in blue or B as in black.  It should definately be either red or black.  Blue wouldn't make sense.  Red is anger, black is death, makes sense.

okay, well, I guess that makes sense, but I would just type out the whole thing, I mean, what is that, and extra half a second?

He typed it that way because that's the OFFICIAL way that you type out cards in text.  Typing 3Black,2 can be confusing, so they use the letters to stand for the mana symbols.

You just got served. Know why? You didn't think. So next time as you think, use up that time to think about a new way to think.

Y'know, Gemm's right.

FuzzyOctopus
Cost: 2UU
Summon Octopus
2/2

FuzzyOctopus's Controller may give FuzzyOctupus +2/+2 until the end of turn. If this occurs, FuzzyOctupus's Controller must pay 2 and Tap during controller's next upkeep. FuzzyOctopus does not untap in the next untap phase.

Are you sure you wern't pulled over twice?

I think an extra tapping kinda represents the situation there. The card isn't anywhere near balanced though - if you want me to come up with balanced cards, get me to design Shadowfist ones.

Hang on, why exactly am I being made fun of for being right?

I'm not making fun. I'm giving you a card as thanks for thinking my other one was funny.

Technically, the way you phrased that card makes it so the card's controller has to tap, not the card itself. That makes FuzzyOctopus the first card to make dancing an official part of the game.

I noticed that, but I listen to J.T. talking about the exact ruling on every card, and technicalities and such so often that I let it slide.

Yeah, well I was sleep deprived and lacking caffeine when I wrote that.

Besides, I like metagame effects.

Hey, if there was a card that made a player tap I'd play it in a second.
