Unstable spoiler season

Postby Marek14 » 14 Nov 2017, 16:10

Well, maybe. While some Unstable cards that were previewed care about things like presence flavor text or number of capital letters in the text box, there are some that are just completely passable, like this one:

Code: Select all
Name:Crow Storm
ManaCost:2 U
Types:Sorcery
A:SP$ Token | Cost$ 2 U | TokenAmount$ 1 | TokenName$ Storm Crow | TokenTypes$ Creature,Bird | TokenOwner$ You | TokenColors$ Blue | TokenPower$ 1 | TokenToughness$ 2 | TokenKeywords$ Flying | SpellDescription$ Create a 1/2 blue Bird creature token with flying named Storm Crow.
K:Storm
SVar:Picture:http://www.wizards.com/global/images/magic/general/crow_storm.jpg
Oracle:Create a 1/2 blue Bird creature token with flying named Storm Crow.\nStorm (When you cast this spell, copy it for each spell cast before it this turn.)
Perhaps more importantly, what do you think about Contraptions? They are weird and they would probably require lots of work, but they seem to work...

Thanks for your effort, Marek! :) I agree that some cards are workable!
Contraptions are interesting, though not sure if there will be someone who would be willing to code the relevant mechanics when it comes to contraption deck and all (but lol, finally there's that one card from Magic history that will now at least make some sense in the context of Unstable - Steamflogger Boss or whatever it was called :))

IMHO it's worth adding contraptions to Forge; it's been heavily hinted that they're going to end up in black-border land eventually, and according to MaRo the existing contraptions will be black-border legal when that happens (they lack a border and were intentionally designed to all be viable in black-border sets; the only reason they're illegal at the moment is because of their card back.)

(most) Silver Bordered cards are now legal in Commander. So, yes, it's probably a good idea to write the code required for Contraptions.

Started coding some cards from Unstable even though I'm late to the party here.

1

Earl of Squirrel: http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/ ... eid=439497

Earl of Squirrel | Open
Code: Select all
Name:Earl of Squirrel
ManaCost:4 G G

2

Squirrel Dealer http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/ ... eid=439512
It's impossible to code this 100% so I made the ETB ability a coin flip instead.

Squirrel Dealer | Open
Code: Select all
Name:Squirrel Dealer
ManaCost:G
Types:Creature Raccoon Lizard Bird
PT:1/1
T:Mode$ ChangesZone | Origin$ Any | Destination$ Battlefield | ValidCard$ Card.Self | Execute$ TrigFlipACoin | TriggerDescription$ When CARDNAME enters the battlefield, flip a coin. If you win the flip, create a 1/1 green Squirrel creature token.
SVar:TrigFlipACoin:AB$FlipACoin | Cost$ 0 | WinSubAbility$ DBToken
SVar:DBToken:DB$Token | TokenAmount$ 1 | TokenName$ Squirrel | TokenColors$ Green | TokenTypes$ Creature,Squirrel | TokenPower$ 1 | TokenToughness$ 1 | TokenOwner$ You | TokenImage$ g 1 1 squirrel
SVar:PlayMain1:TRUE
SVar:Picture:http://www.wizards.com/global/images/magic/general/squirrel_dealer.jpg
Oracle:When Squirrel Dealer enters the battlefield, ask a person outside the game "Do you like Squirrels?" If they do, create a 1/1 green Squirrel creature token.
Then, editions file modification:

res/editions file updated | Open
