So I want to make a card set of Norse mythology (Like Thor, Loki, Odin) and I need some ideas to help. So my challenge is for the community of Tappedout to submit ideas for cards. I've made one so far and im liking the feel of him.

if they made a set like this I would buy a playset of every single card! epic artwork too man I love it! I may post some card suggestions but the card creator won't work while im at work :-) I'm thinking Odin should totaly be black! his -2 should be something like remove target permanent from the game his +1 could be erm....creatures you control gain doublestrike until the end of turn, his -6 ability would be something like you get an emblem called Gungnir that has attacking creatures you control get +3 +0 and gain doublestrike or deathtouch he would cost 2 black 2 colourless and have loyalty 3. his artwork needs to be Odin on his horse Sleipnir with Gungnir in the ground next to him his armor should be epic and black as should his horse :-)

sorcery ragnorok, 3/R/B/W restart the game with 20 life a new hand no permanants on the field and once this new game starts put all creatures in graveyards into play under their owners control they all gain flying and get +1/+1 (flying signifying that they are the honoured dead fighting at the end of days)

legenedary creature - Thor. P5/5 gets +2/+2 for each equipment attached to him. he is indestructable. he costs 3r/3b/3w and has hexproof. (basically this dude should not and cannot die cuz hes a fuckin god of gods!) Thor can only be cast using mana generated by lands and his mana cost cannot be overwritten by the affect of any other cards. When Thor enters the batllefield attach all equipment in play to him that you own and these equipment cannot be unequipped. Thor takes one additional creature to block for each additional equipment equipped to him past the 1st

Planeswalker- Loki

+2 Tap 2 creatures you control. Gain Control of target creature.

-2 Put 3 1/1 Human Follower tokens into play under your control.

-12 Target opponent separates their battlefield into 2 piles. Select one of the piles and gain control of all permanents in that pile for the rest of the game.

buky92 says... #35

Here is what I made Loki look like

Do you think i should make Thor a planeswalker as well since Loki and Odin are?


February 29, 2012 10:54 a.m.

maiden77 says... #36

it suits Thor as a creature he is more people orientated than the other gods tbh and he wields a hammer which is just begging to be made as a legendary artifact and it also begs for thor to be a hammer weilding maniac IMO :-) his final could be for him to sprout an ultimate equipment i suppose if he was a planeswalker and his +1 or +2 could be equppied creatures you control get +1/+1 for each equipment attached to it and he could have a 0 cost of like equip costs cost 2 less this turn? something like that. and his -2 could be search your library for an equipment card put it onto the battlefield

buky92 says... #37

I can make each of them a planes walker and a creature. I'm also thinking about valkeries as a creature type. Idk what other creatures to do. Maybe humans, ice giants(like the movie:)) and some more

elbenji says... #38

I was thinking something like:

Frost Troll

Creature - Troll




When Frost Troll takes combat damage, tap target permanent. The target permanent does not tap until after the controller's next untap step.


Light Valkyrie


Creature - Valkyrie (or Angel)


Flying, Vigilance

When CARDNAME enters the battlefield, you gain X life where X is double the number of permanents you control.

They would have to be Frost TitanMTG Card: Frost Titan in this set for the feel of a frost giant. I feel that the titan gives a feel that would be wanted in the set. Then there would have to be a card for Jorgumand...would that be considered a serpent or a leviathan?

Hella, queen of Nefilheim 1BB (?) Legendary Creature - Undead B (Tap) - Target creature gets -2/-2 Until end of Turn.

If a human would be put into a graveyard from play, put a 2/2 black zombie token onto the battlefield


I don't know if that would work for a card but its just something I came up with off the top of my head.

I support this thread. Honestly, I'd buy a set of these in printed card format if you guys nail them all down. Seriously.
