...and to the ever-more-curious and yet-further-uninitiated, the fella in the back is Anger. Hence, the sword-envy.

For the curious and uninitiated, the rodent thing in the art is Infernal Spawn of Infernal Spawn of Evil.

Aside from the obvious of something with an obsinly long name. Its one mana for a pump that it most likely going to be at least a little significant. Thrun, the last troll gets +4/+4 for 1 mana, and he's a powerfull card to begin with. Keeper of the sacred word gets +5/+5 and he's already epic. Naturally your going to want to run OMRSTPLRLCNSWMTCTHTALCNEE for a double-rainbow level of amazing boost, but its really not necessary.

Works well with Order of the White Shield in a weenie deck.

This is the only card in the multiverse for which quoting the flavor text verbatim in comments is awesome:

Suck on it, Stangg.

DarthParallax -- even if CorkBulb's point about the word 'card' was incorrect, or even if they printed The Comprehensive Rulebook on a card, your combo doesn't work because mathematics.

The technical problem working against you is known as the Incompleteness Theorem. Short and sorta butchered version, the complete rules of the game of Magic can't exist in the game, they exist in a meta-space encompassing the game. How can we know this for certain? Any sufficiently complex game created within a rules structure can't completely contain that rules structure. The minimal requirement is internalized logical and basic mathematical operations (all of which we can derive from Doubling Season, Opalescence, and Followed Footsteps enchanting Doubling Season); we can actually construct polynomial statements of arbitrarily high degree.

Quite possibly the best flavor text ever.

Enchant Our Market Research Shows That Players Like Really Long Card Names So We Made this Card to Have the Absolute Longest Card Name Ever Elemental for +25/+25 on a 2/2 for a total cost of WGG1 !

Or even better enchant _____ after using it's ability to change it's name to something amazingly long.

I just happen to be a rules lawyer and object to your interpretation of both the ruling for "_____" (the card with no name) and "Look at Me, I'm the DCI"

First of, lets take a look at the official Mark Rosewater ruling for "____" in the FAQTIWDAWCC (Frequently Asked Questions That If We Didn't Answer Would Cause Chaos) http://www.wizards.com/magic/tcg/article.aspx?x=magic/faq/unhinged)):


... Can I change this card to be Jojo, the Dog-faced Lizard Boy?


Can I change it to be Solar-Powered Ninja Penguin?


Can I change it to be Siamese Pygmy Pole-Vaulter?

No. To save us some space, maybe I should let you know what it can become. You may change this card to have the name of any _Magic_ card in existence.

So, you can only to change it to an actual printed card's name. As far as I know, there is no card printed with the name "The Comprehensive Rulebook". Lets check:

It doesn't quite work with ____ the way most people want it to.

You have to change ____'s name to the actual name of a card 'because it can only turn into things that exist in the game', according to Wizards.

Using this Knowledge, I completely obliterated the entire fabric of the game on a much more direct and fundamental and might I say FAR more DISASTROUS way than most people would have thought of.

Name ____ 'The Comprehensive Rulebook'. Because of Wizards' own ruling, either this works, or The Comprehensive Rulebook doesn't exist in the game. Which means....what? O.o LET'S FIND OUT!
They really need to be more careful about what they say, lol, BECAUSE-

So. Once you have a permanent named 'The Comprehensive Rulebook', target it with 'Look At Me, I'm the DCI!'.


I just BANNED The Comprehensive Rulebook. With cards that they actually made. I am the Ultimate Johnny. Bow to the Master and Lord of Chaos and Combos! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAA!!!!!!!
