Card of the Day - Orcish Roulette

Human games suck.

Original Art


  1. So, this is kind of a flavor nightmare. Killing a permanent simply cannot be done by the same means that kill players. Planeswalkers are simply made of sterner stuff. Also, weirdly, if you float four mana around a Jokulhaups this card reads "The game ends with a coin flip, I hope you enjoyed yourself."

    Cards that end games suddenly are gigantically un-fun to play with.

    Guess who is procrastinating again?

  2. Gonna have to disagree with you on this one, Chuck. For one thing, there'll still be enchantments and planeswalkers sitting out there, feeling nervous, as well as indestructible permanents, who don't have to fear the roulette in any case. So there may still be a large number of cards floating around out there, depending on who's playing what deck.

    Secondly, it depends on what type of planeswalker we're talking about here. If you can kill a planeswalker with a fireball, then they're probably the neo-planeswalkers, which means they're really not made of sterner stuff then permanents. So yeah, this card isn't a flavor nightmare.
