This is a contest. Hopefully the first of many, all culminating in a super epic final contest that will rival A Silly Contest in size and will probably ever. You will get grades and everything. The grades may or may not be slightly arbitrary but they will be there. Trust me.

Basically, I'll post these when I come up with a good criteria and have some free time in the near future to do grading.

This first criteria is cool and also maybe a little challenging. Razorborne would probably be excited.

Criteria


The funnier to say outloud the better.
Two winners.
One for actual card design.
One for funniest (for me) to say outloud.

==xx==

Some good examples cards I enjoy saying aloud...
Jackalope Herd - Funny things
Jorubai Murk Lurker - alliterations (ish) I dunno where this falls under, but you can't deny that "murk lurker" has a nice ring to it.
Chains of Mephistopheles - A lot of syllables
Taniwha - Short sounds for me to put emphasis on
Crimbil, Boubuon.
etc...

Unholy Banana Split

Artifact - Food (U)

When Unholy Banana Split enters the battlefield, destroy target creature an opponent controls with no +1/+1 counters on it.
When a creature devours Unholy Banana Split, that creature becomes a yellow Banana Demon and gains deathtouch. (This effect lasts indefinitely.)

The fruit of all evil.

OOH! I'm adding that you can submit two cards. One per category.
BUT remember that both need to have fun to say (aka potentially ridiculous) names otherwise they are disqualified.

Some good examples cards I enjoy saying aloud...
Jackalope Herd - Funny things
Jorubai Murk Lurker - alliterations (ish) I dunno where this falls under, but you can't deny that "murk lurker" has a nice ring to it.
Chains of Mephistopheles - A lot fo syllables
Taniwha - Short sounds for me to put emphasis on
Crimbil, Boubuon.
etc...

No... in hindsight, people might just make words and thorugh it on a vanilla sorcery.

Just one submission...

I like to think most of the time people can tell when I am kidding or not.

And here are the grades! I know it took a while, sorry, but there was far too much participation this time around.

Runcible Spoon wins funnest to say outloud.
Unholy Banana Split wins card design.

==xx==

While the designs were close, Runcible seems a bit overcosted to me. Even with the varietability (it seems overcosted to me). In hindsight I might be very undervaluing it, but at the same time it doesn't stop this nagging feeling that it's overcosted.

Unholy Banana Split might run into issues regarding devour. I think devour only affects creatures, but I think that's stupid and I obviously understood what you were going for, and I like what it does.

Also go cheer Silly on for a far superiorer contest. And more than likely far superiorerer grades.

  • Tails, then Heads: Put a -0/-1 counter on Quantum Wombat.
  • Two Tails: Sacrifice Quantum Wombat.

I'm feeling generous so I'll comment...
Did you know that wombats poop cubes! The more ya know...

The name I personally would've preferred if it were Quantum Phantom (word-end alliteration and all that).
As for the ability, I absolutely love it, but it would never happen :(
I do think having two really negative abilities is a bit much, but then again, you have a 25% chance of duplicating the thing. This thing would be killer in limited.
