Custom Card Game Design
June 24, 2014Posted by on
In Beginnings, there will be two uncommon cycles of paradoxic creatures. These are split creature cards that represent the same character from different realities or timelines. You can cast either half of split creature card just like an ordinary split card, and while it is on the stack or battlefield, only the half you cast exists. Like their instant and sorcery counterparts, paradoxic creatures all have names that sound well when you say it as “X and Y.” For example, Bound // Determined is read as “Bound and Determined”, and Judge // Executioner is read as “Judge and Executioner.”
The reactions to the paradoxic creatures have been very split. Nonetheless, I am happy how they turned out individually, regardless of the worth of the idea as a whole. Below you can see all the paradoxic creatures from the two uncommon cycles. There will also be a few legendary ones at rare and mythic, but they will have different name templates. As you can see, among them three are still missing. I am looking for names for them and asking you to share any ideas you can come up with. The cards below should give you a good idea of what I am looking for. So, if you can think of a good name for the black, the red-black or the red-green one, please share it in the comments.
