Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - The Movie

Casual BUG (Sultai) G/U (Simic) Theme/Gimmick



Re-enactment of a (slightly altered) TMNT movie in Magic.

The PlanTM:

Turn 3: Horned Turtle
Turn 4: Master Biomancer
Turn 5: Sakashima's Student
Turn 6: Xenograft, name "Teenage"
Turn 7: ???
Turn 8: Profit.

Plot synopsis:

Four little Horned Turtle s go to Explore an Underground River but accidently stumble upon a Simic Growth Chamber. The Master Biomancer s that work there regularly use it as a Breeding Pool, but their Experiment One1 failed. Furiously they left that evening but without stowing their Ooze Flux away.
The four Horned Turtle s come in contact with the Ooze Flux and almost immediately begin Bioshift ing into fully grown Mutant Turtles. With their new found intelligence they seek Alchemist's Refuge and find another Bioshift ed animal, a rat named Master Splinter (portrayed by Nezumi Shadow-Watcher ).
Splinter helps them by teaching them the way of the ninja. The Horned Turtle s are very good Sakashima's Student s, so they progress fast.
Each of them develops his own unique fighting style, Leonardo wielding two blades, a No-Dachi and a O-Naginata , Donatello wielding a Skyblinder Staff , Raphael two Sai of the Shinobi and Michelangelo a pair of Nunchaku2 Inquisitor's Flails.

Meanwhile an Archivist named April O'Neil3 is researching a story on the Master Biomancer s that would incriminate them in using Xenografts on their Experiment One. Without proof, she can't do anything though. Fortunately she runs into the Horned Turtle s who help her on her quest...

1 Experiment One was cut from the movie since it was irrelevant to the plot.
2 The Nunchuks have been replaced with Inquisitor's Flail for budget reasons.
3 The director almost cast Azami, Lady of Scrolls but then decided against it in the last moment.

This. This is why I love this site. Not necessarily for the deck ideas, or un-thought of combos. But to those clever few who can pull a pop culture reference out of anything. You sir, I salute you. +1

From the Xenograft Oracle page:"6/1/2011: You must choose an existing Magic creature type"http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=227544

Sorry man, you can't choose "Teenage" as it is not on the grand creature list. http://wiki.mtgsalvation.com/article/Creature_type#Grand_Creature_Type_Update

However, I do love your deck and the Turtles that inspired you!

The closest you can geg to "Teenage" is the "Child" creature type from Unhinged's Little Girl . But I'm sure we could bend the rules for once and allow for a new creature type loll ;)

This is the funniest thing I've seen all damned year! 1000 internets for you, sir! If I had a hat, it would be so tipped that it'd come full circle, and tip it all over again!
