The Finest Flavor Text Comedy

+1 Upvote :)

This deck (as the name implies) is the funniest and wittiest collection of well flavor-texted cards I could find.

Since there can only be 60 best cards, this deck has a format of: Bottom 10 - Good - Better - Best - Top 5, out of the 60 card slots allocated.

(10 cards-15 cards-15 cards-15 cards-5 cards)

I finally updated a bunch of cards on here, a lot of changes were made, if you would like to see them. This means new suggestions will be facilitated much quickly than they were before. Thanks for the continued support!

I feel like Foul Imp should be somewhere on this list

Hi! Love the deck. I always get a chuckle out of Goblin Offensive and Root Greevil, so I, personally, think they should be higher in the rankings. Also, here's a few personal favorite flavor texts: Goblin War Strike, Incendiary Flow, Sea's Claim, and Counterspell.

I like Knight Watch. Ekundu Cyclops isn't bad either IMO.

Bovine073 says... #5

beninator thanks! Ekundu Cyclops reminds me of Orwell's Animal Farm (if you have ever read that, lol).

So what about Night's Whisper or Riptide Mangler? Also, Divine Verdict. The version from Theros is the actual funny one, but I don't know how to bring it up instead.

Divine Verdict, for the above post.

October 28, 2016 4:06 a.m.

Bovine073 says... #8

Ah, didn't know Divine Verdict ever had a different flavor text! I think at one point the "guilty" one was on here, but has since been removed. I remember turning down a very similar card to the Theros Divine Verdict that was something along the lines of "the last thing to go through the mogg's head was its face" or something like that.

The chum one is a good pun but is kinda meh to me in terms of comedy. It's good, though.

Nights whisper, albeit great flavor text, isn't really comedic. Sometimes I wish I had a best "dark flavor text" list or something like that, that would it right in.

Thanks TheRedGoat!

Yeah, to think better on it the imagery involved with the phrase alone wouldn't strike me as funny either with Divine Verdict, so I can understand that. Guess that's a list for another day.

Great list, gave me some smiles and reminded me of some good memories. I always liked Carrion Beetles....though I'm not sure if it joins the funny section or the dark section! ( which you should definitely add :) )

November 1, 2016 7:38 p.m.

Bovine073 says... #11

BS-T that's the exact opposite of Vexing Devil, interesting! I think this one counts more as a dark flavor text, though. Thanks!

Great list. Here are some you forgot.

Wall of Swords

Bovine073 says... #13

JohnnyBoyG, I had Indestructibility on here, but it has since been replaced (I love the art with the text, it's great). Redirect has always been in the back of my mind, but not sure about it.

But Wall of Swords, now THAT is a funny one. Thanks!

Has anyone mentioned the SOI version of Macabre Waltz yet? Snerk.

December 14, 2016 12:19 p.m.

Bovine073 says... #15

No one has up until now. I really like the double meaning here. Perhaps into the Meta Irony? Eh, not sure. Thanks!

December 14, 2016 12:21 p.m.

VD_D says... #16

Just ran across this thread... Ad Nauseam as a Meta Irony? Considering that you make yourself "undead" when you play it with Angel's Grace/Phyrexian Unlife?

December 21, 2016 5:51 a.m.

Bovine073 says... #17

VD_D hadn't thought of it that way. I have thought about putting it in because of the actual name of the card (Ad Nauseam is a phrase meaning: "used to refer to the fact that something has been done or repeated so often that it has become annoying or tiresome.") but dismissed it because it wasn't the actual flavor text of the card. Will update, thanks!

Oh Bovine073 I almost forgot this one! All Is Dust is one I always liked.

January 9, 2017 1:37 p.m.

Bovine073 says... #20

I like Untethered Express, but not sure if it fits here. All Is Dust gave me a chuckle, it will be fighting for a spot here. Thanks!

Any love for Nausea or Nausea?

BS-T I love the EMA version. Will consider. Thanks!

frogkill45 it is already in the list :P

Goblin Spy could be a good card to look at

I love it nicobye. Love it.

From AER, we got the gem that is Sram's Expertise.

Both good suggestions, thanks!

Ski Patrol I like because it fits well into the goblin subtheme, and has a quote from Ib Halfheart.

But where is Mental Misstep? :O :D #Metairony

clayperce says... #34

Have you already considered Abrupt Decay? Saw one in an MM17 pack and immediately thought of your list ...

March 19, 2017 11:50 a.m.

Bovine073 says... #35

clayperce it was in here before... I could add it back. I really need to do a big update.

Dinrova Horror always made me laugh

Utter End Should have been an auto-include in Meta Irony

June 1, 2017 4:49 p.m.

Bovine073 says... #38

Master_Of_Obscure_Blue_Spells it just seems like good flavor text to me, not necessarily meta or ironic.

June 2, 2017 1:06 a.m.

clayperce says... #39

I stumbled across an old copy of Spike Jester today. Thought it went even beyond the typical Goblin flavor text ... to Rakdos Goblin! :-D
