Unintentionally Hilarious or Suggestive Cards

General forum

In this game, there are some cards that players find to be either hilarious or suggestive, even if WotC did not intend for them to be so, so I wish to create a thread to honor such cards.

The first card that I shall mention is the classic Uktabi Orangutan, notable for its artwork, which one could dismiss as being unintentional if it were not for the flavor text of the card, and the fact that the artist's last name is "Fricker" adds further unintentional hilarity to it, as well. Uktabi Kong does not qualify for this thread, because it was intentionally hilarious and suggestive, as it is referencing and parodying the orangutan.

Next is Clergy en-Vec, which again has artwork that could be dismissed as harmless and innocent, but has flavor text that makes it clear that WotC was sneaking an adult joke past the censors.

There is also Stonecloaker, in which the titular creature is touching the human in a manner than is very suggestive.

Bone Flute is entirely self-explanatory.

The artwork for Crossway Vampire is supposed to convey a sense of danger and dread, but I cannot help but feel that the vampire in the artwork is about to prey on the human in an entirely different manner than drinking his blood.

I am not certain if Earthbind qualifies for this thread, as it is almost certainly suggestive deliberately.

What does everyone else say about this? What cards do you find to be unintentionally hilarious or suggestive?

Besides the last two, I find them all very funny. Thanks for a good laugh!!!

I think that Morkrut Banshee and cards like it are funny (strange funny) in that they’re some random mytical creature with massive breasts. Way to sexualize some fantasy art, Wizards. Completely out of context compared to characters like Liliana of the Veil and Rakish Heir that are supposed to have some sexual vibe.

I found a few lists that are on-theme for this thread.

Check out MTG controvercy plz look at it, it must be spread. & Sexy Women Collection.

Just in case you don't feel like clicking, the important ones are Glory Seeker, which has some unfortunate placement of something "down there," and Ekundu Cyclops in which the tree seems very... erect...?

And also... Invoke Prejudice is not funny, so much as one of the most inappropriate cards, ever. Intentional or not, the card is just a total "oops!"

Gattison, the thing hanging from Glory Seeker is the scabbard of his sword, not his actual "sword."

I also forgot about Rakdos Keyrune, which again ahs suggestive flavor text, and there is also Fists of the Anvil which is entirely self-explanatory.

Gleeock, what about Corpsejack Menace (although I do find it to be difficult to believe that the artwork on that card is unintentional)?

Gattison, how is Congregate either hilarious or suggestive?

Well, the structure in the picture looks like a flesh-colored monument to man's lower half, and then there's that "angelic beauty" in the foreground, approaching eagerly, if not ecstatically. Plus the upskirt shot on the bottom left.

More suggestive than hilarious.

Can someone please explain why Macabre Waltz is on the list? Necrophilia?

Gattison, yes, that makes sense.

Homura_Akemi, I do not find Macabre Waltz to be either suggestive or hilarious, merely creepy and disturbing, especially with its original artwork.
