Flavor Text

Cards are not popular just for their effects, brokenness or artwork. Many cards find their ways into players' hearts because the Flavor Text accompanying the card ties everything together and is often hilarious.

 "Some have said there is no subtlety to destruction. You know what? They're dead." --Jaya Ballard, task mage

 "Of course you should fight fire with fire. You should fight everything with fire." --Jaya Ballard, task mage

 "I said 'pick his brain," not 'tear off his head.'"

 "Everybody but me--CHARGE!"

 They certainly are.

 The correct answer to a barbarian's riddle is to choke on your own cleverness and die.

 The knights see a worthy quarry. The dragon sees breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

 Step 1: Find your cousin.

Step 2: Get your cousin in the cannon.

Step 3: Find another cousin.

 "So they want to kill my men? Well two can play at that game." --General Khurzog

 "The enemy has been destroyed, sir. So have the forest, the city, your palace, your dog..." --Keldon soldier

 "We'll scale these cliffs, traverse Brittle Bridge, and then fight our way down the volcanic slopes on the other side."

  "Garl, adjust the slurry dispensers. Garl, fetch more corpses. Garl, quit crying and give me your brain tissue. If he doesn't stop being so rude, I'm quitting."

 "I want a banana this big!"

 In addition to killing peasants, punishing subordinates, and raising an army of nightmares, Braids somehow found time for her favorite hobby: petty extortion.

Tournament Play and other meta humor

  • During the launch party for Unglued (the joke set that makes fun of Magic itself), Mark Rosewater took the role of a judge...while wearing a chicken suit. He wore a donkey suit for the release of the sequel set, Unhinged. On a related note, Mark also made a list of his favorite funny quotes from the players at the Unglued launch party, found Here (at the end).
  • Anytime you and your friends play a game of Magic where Unglued or Unhinged is included. Anytime. Just an example:

 (on turn 3)

Friend 1: (stoic) For 3 mana, Farewell to Arms. Right hand. Go.

Friends 2: (manages to go through his turn with his right hand behind his back) Go.

Friend 1: (still stoic) For 3 mana, Farewell to Arms. Left hand. (smiles) Play with your feet, motherfucker.
