Each player hides at least one item, then all players reveal them simultaneously. Each player loses life equal to the number of items he or she revealed. The player who revealed the fewest items then loses half his or her life, rounded up. If two or more players are tied for fewest, each loses half his or her life, rounded up.

Goblin Game could be fun? Or, it might not...but isn't that the point?

Nemesis on Can we take a moment ...

I'm at work now so I can't really dive into this yet, I may come back to it later, but I can tell you something that helped me deal with my need to make fun decks in a group that evolved passed that point: I taught new players the game. New players don't have a good gauge of what's good or bad and they tend to go for the things they think are cool or the things that look fun. They're the perfect people to play your Goblin Game / Plague of Vermin + Worst Fears / Mindslaver deck against.

HappyMilkXD on The Actual Weirdest Cards

I was looking for the wierdest Magic cards in Google, and stumbled with this magnificence. But I also think you're missing some good stuff:
- Chaos Orb : demands physical interaction with the game
- Shahrazad : the card that created
- Divine Intervention : 8 mana to just tie
- Floral Spuzzem :
- Goblin Game
- Scrambleverse
- Furnace of Rath
- Shared Fate

And then there are the cards that make you play cards from outside the game:
- Mastermind's Acquisition
- Burning Wish
- Coax from the Blind Eternities
- Cunning Wish
- Death Wish
- Research
- Glittering Wish
- Golden Wish
- Karn, the Great Creator
- Living Wish
- Ring of Ma'ruf
- Spawnsire of Ulamog

Hope any of these cards work for your list!

I'll do the Un-card that wasn't in an unset:

Goblin Game

Legendary Planeswalker - Meme

When Goblin Game enters the battlefield, hide X objects

+1: Reveal a hidden object. Then, add

0: Hide an Object

-7: Reveal all hidden objects. For each object revealed this way, put a 2/2 goblin creature onto the battlefield. They gain haste until end of turn.


I set it up this way so not only do you have to manage your loyalty, but also the amount of objects you have hidden. I think it captures the essence of the card.

, Exile all cards you own in all zones and remove them from exile into the "never in the game in the first place" zone then put target deck from the same format from outside the game where your library was. Shuffle it and draw 7 cards then continue with mulligans.

If I was playing my other deck you would be so dead right now.

make an unset card that does something unique

e.g. Goblin Game, Modular Monstrosity or any of the gotcha cards
