How would the MtG playerbase react to a futuristic setting? Would it harm the game?Pic unrelated.
You saying you shoot hamburgers at my sister?
"Last night I Bondburger your sister?" The hell?
LAST NIGHT I BOND-BURGERED YOUR SISTER
>>26394297Magic has futuristic elements in it with Artificers, though they still use Magic in the creation of their technology. Simic, for example, has a tendency to fuck with genes. Izzet runs the whole "mad science" thing, and then there's the entire plane of Mirrodin.Unless you mean "futuristic" as in "blatantly cyberpunk", I'd say it's already been done.
>>26394297"Last night I Pierce Brosnan Royale w/Cheese your sister"

Pierced her Buns?because it's Pierce Brosnan
>>26394400No, he britburgered her.
Last night I placed your sister in bonds and pounded her?
>>26394297.... Does, uh. Does anyone know what this one is actually supposed to mean?It's really late where I live, and I don't think I can fall sleep if I don't find out.

Hey guys, what would you all say to a movie where Daniel Craig's Bond had to hunt down a double-oh agent who had gone rogue, and it turned out to be Pierce Brosnan's bond?
>>26394393That has to be it!
Last night I spied a bun your sister?
>Last night I bondburger your sisterI don't get it
>>26394437But that one was with Roger Moore.

I pierced and pounded your sister?
bonded wich your sister?
>>26394511>implying Roger Moore exists
>>26394519That sounds close, but it's kind of a stretch with those two images.
I bonded with your sister in hamburg
>>26394454Nah, wouldn't be that cool since Brosnan was a cool Bond. I do like the Theory of the Multiple Bonds, too bad they can't get all of the Bonds on one movie to do such thing as it would be too cheesy.
>>26394549What if it was the Lazenby Bond? He already went off the reservation once.
>>26394522but then where did the burger go?
>>26394549>Nah, wouldn't be that cool since Brosnan was a cool Bond. I do like the Theory of the Multiple Bonds, too bad they can't get all of the Bonds on one movie to do such thing as it would be too expensiveftfy
I Irish movie star with an American sandwich your sister. Got it.
>>26394575a burger is a sandwich.
>>26394569sorry, brainfart. Dalton Bond. Not Lazenby.
>>26394575Into the Bond it goes.
>>26394589oooh. you said "wich" not "with" sory, i missed that.
>>26394586holy shit, the dude went from agent to rogue trader
>>26394607It's a bit of a stretch but it's all I could think of.
>>26394589More like, he had a threeway with Pierce Brosnan and some guy's sister.
>>26394636and you know he paid more attention to Brosnan than the girl. Who wouldn't?
>>26394636>threeway with Pierce Brosnan and some guy's burgerFTFY
>>26394586He should do some movies with that exact look. He can do any role like that. Villain, ambiguous hero, straight-up hero, love interest, whatever.
>>26394667Next bond girl?
Okay, that's Pierce Brosnan, as James Bond, from (I guess) GoldenEye.Now we need to find out what that thing next to it is, so we have all the pieces to the puzzle.
>>26394297fuck you for making me think longer than 30 seconds on a single topic

I agree with OP.
>>26394837Don't you dare johnny flowerpot with my mom again!
>>26394387>>26394877Does anyone have the screenshot for the classic blunder?
That is the 60's bond, and a #9 on the Mcdonald's menu during the 60's, ergo, I 60-9'd your sister (69)
>>26394837I deported your mother?Prepare el rectal cavities because homeland security are coming for you next, ¡hombre!
>>26394837Alright, the answer is"Yesterday i johnny planted with your mother"
>>26394912I can dig that
>>26394297Oh i got thisMy little sister can't possibly be this burgerbond
>>26394912But Brosnan did Bond movies in the 90's.
>>26394912.... That would make plenty of sense if the picture was Sean Connery, but it's actually Pierce Brosnan, the 90s Bond. So he 99ed your sister? Is... is that a feasible position? Spooning, maybe?
>>26394955no no you switched them around, you can't do that. rooky mistake, i understand. but its pretty obvious he pierce brosburger'd your sister.
>>26394361I like the flavoring in those a lot better than standard magic...

Netrunner has already been done by Richard Garfield.Pictured is the reboot of it.It's not like Magic at all, but whatever.I was obsessed with MtG in 10th grade, nobody wanted to play. I quit, get back into it at the start of 12th, still nobody playing so I quit again.Lo and behold now everyone has friggin $100 decks and everyone's playing. Pisses me off to no end like what the fuck.
>>26395012>>26395047The smug asshole is a British comic strip character called Rodger the Dodger. So he tau-something-something-rodgered your family? ('Rodger' is British slang for 'have sex with'. But so are most other words. English is a good language for innuendo.)
This whole fucking thread. My sides have atomized.
Have you guys never seen this image before? It's pretty common on /v/.
>>26395174It's pretty ancient, and still brings about joy and excitement
This thread, I don't even know anymore.
>>26395183Well then tell us the secret! The secret is that there is no secret. It exists purely to drive puzzle-solvers mad.
>>26395233I swear, it's "secretly beefed"
>>26396194That's kind of a long shot.
>>26396205I'm only guessing there. But given the number of insane attempts we've made to solve it, it makes way too much sense.
>>26394297>>26394837>>26394899>>26394981>>26394986is it helicopter?
>>26396228How is it a long shot? Burgers are beef and James Bond is a secret agent.
>>26397583Yeah, but look at all the guesses in this thread, it'd take some word assosciation and mix-matching similar phrases to reach that conclusion. The pictures just aren't clear enough.

Last night I Goldeneye quarterpoundered your sisterLast night I tuxedo junk food you sisterLast night I spy burgered your sisterLast night I Brosnan cheesed your sisterLast night I gunbeefed your sister
I'm really confused right now.Can someone properly explain me the implications of James Bond/Burgers/and my sister?
>>26401029They both beget storytellings?A group of ravens, while more commonly called a murder, can also be referred to as a storytelling. Same for crows.
>>26401029They both begin with the sound "Rrr"
>>26401029In an introduction to a later edition of Alice In Wonderland, Lewis Carroll addressed the issue, saying “Because it can produce a few notes, tho they are very flat; and it is never put with the wrong end in front!” In the original preface, “never” was spelled “Nevar,” which is “raven” backwards. Carroll's pun was unfortunately lost to the red pen of a proofreader, confusing the issue of the riddle even further.

>>26395103The 2nd person I only reconize as "ching chong potato"The doll is specifically a raggedy ann doll.Every day last weak I tauching (touching? touchingly?) raggedly rogered a female member of your immediate family?

>>26401029There is a B in both and an N in neither?
>>26394297Last night I black tie western sandwiched your sister.
>>26401476What if I just say it's a group or a bunch of ravens?
>>26396310well done you.
>>26394297I seem to recall seeing a more plausible answer than 'silently pounded' at some point in the past. But, of course, I've forgotten it now.
Spy sandwiched?Agent beefed?Double-oh Burgered?Bond Stacked?I am confus
>>26401421>>26401476I thought it was a conspiracy of ravens.
>>26394297Last night I ordered your sister to infiltrate my secret base for $1.99 an hour.
>>26401715My sister is worth at least a double whopper and a side of fries.
>>26401706Apparently, there's a bunch of ways to refer to a group of corvids. People really seem to take a liking to groups of more than two of them.
>>26401776Nigga, your sister got the fries to go with that shake if you na' meeeeen.

>>26394297Last night I gave your sister seven double-Os then took her out for a delicious burger. I know how to treat a lady right.
WHAT THE FUCK IS A BONDBURGER.
likely a futuristic setting wouldn't be too different from any other block, however most of the higher-ups at wizards have pretty much agreed that magic is generally a high-fantasy setting and you can't go too much into the future. Mirroden is about as futuristic as magic will get and Innistrad is about as far as it will go when it comes to times and places.
Last night I pierced your sister's burger. If you know what I mean.
>>26404295Nigger this is a question unanswerable by man
>>26404295I think I half-cracked it. That burger's a Qt. Pounder. So, Brosnan Qt.PounderI have no idea.

Well on topic:Define "Futuristic."Because I mean, force fields, lasers, large walking battle mechs, and planet busting battle moons might be too much for MtG players to handle.It might completely ruin the setting forever.>007 cheese burger, what?
>>26409646Don't forget "Fryfall".Also, I think I read somewhere that Weird Al was thinking about writing a spoof of Live and Let Die called "Chicken Pot Pie", but Paul McCartney (vegetarian) said "no thanks".
>>26409769Agreed. If MtG started doing something more than just swords, magic and lord of the rings eqse stuff. It would completely lose it's player base forever.I don't think they could handle robots, plasma chambers, fusion generators, or anything similar.
I special agent sandwiched her?

Last night I Bond-pounded your sister.
holy shit this is still goingGood luck, fair riddlesolvers.
>>26410706I thought it was supposed to be "Last night I bond-burgered your sister". I was about to ask what the fuck bond-burger was.
>>26411381It's when you fuck someone through a burger, so even after sex you're stuck to them because of this greasy, crushed burger mass.
HOW ON EARTH IS THIS THREAD STILL ALIVE!?
>>26411594Relax, it's only been less than a day. I've seen threads last 3, and I'm to believe that there were threads that lasted /weeks/ in the early days. We are not a speedy board
>>26411623Shit, son, my longest few Emperasque threads lasted eight or nine days, and that was only a year or a year and a half back.
Old school magic was futuristic as fuck. Robots, an android as a MC, all of phyrexia having flying stargates, spaceship phyrexians, urza walking onto dead moons n shit and newt not being able to breathe cause it was fucking SPACE.MTG started off as mage punk. That ended when the lore of the game ended - time spiral block. So basically I blame the Jew.

>Pierced and Pounded your sisterObviously.
>>26423235WIZARDS WOULD GET ALL OF MY MONEY.
Where's this from, OP? I swear I've seen it before.
>>26423235>a lot of cards feature "players" of various rarity>have multiple effects to represent their decks (the lower the rarity, the shittier their deck, the shittier their effects)>you can only activate one of these effects per tern for a set amount of mana/when the creature come into play>each effect represents a card in their deck>roll a dice (1-6) to see which effect happens (which card they draw)
>>26394297What sort of bugs me about Magic is that they've demonstrated that they're willing to put dynamite, primitive rocket launchers, proto-aircraft, hypercomplex mechanical automatons, steampunk-style creatures and structures, and more things I'm not even going to touch on into the game, but they seem to be avoiding straight-up guns and gunpowder like the plague.Even in settings where they would fit perfectly flavourwise (such as Innistrad), they always replace what would make more sense as guns with crossbows, and replace what look like they should be cannons with ridiculous ballistae and magicpunk mortars.And it's not like it would ruin the game's flavour/balance either, since power and toughness are always indicative to how strong a creature is relative to others on it's home plane, and tech doesn't really travel between them.tl;dr I see no reason for there not to be primitive flintlocks and cannons in MTG and it annoys me that they'll add any number of things that aren't quite guns, but functionally are.>inb4 bondburger thread
>>26423879>inb4 bondburger threadHave you read the last 290 replies? You'd best start believing in bondburger threads, because you're in one.
>>26423879Fantasy gun ban, yo.it happens.
>>26423904Go back to /vp/ Gary. Anyway, I didn't really expect to get the thread back on track or anything, I was just wanting an opportunity to vent and didn't think the sentiment deserved it's own thread.
>>26423879Apparently, the Alaborn's use of guns proved to be unappealing to the mass audience.I kind of like that MTG stays way from too much tech outside of Mirrodin.
>>26424078My main problem is that they don't stay away from tech, though. I mean, Mirrodin might be the most sleek and futuristic plane but it's more magic than automation. What bothers me is that they're willing to say "Yes, entirely (or almost entirely) mechanical combat-capable constructs, industrial-revolution era explosives, and hypercomplicated steampunk stuff exists in multiple planes but not a SINGLE one has even a primitive gonne."If they just said, "We won't do high tech on this plane, period." it would be fine. If they said, "We want this plane's technology and atmosphere to be Victorian/steampunk/highly advanced artifice and therefore they should have basic gunpowder weapons." that would also be fine. But if they go out and say, "We're going to have sophisticated explosives and a society based on a time that had guns but then replace every gun with a crossbow (even though we're fine with electricity-powered alchemical Frankenstein's Monsters)." That's where I have a problem.
>>26424242But... they didn't have guns in Frankenstein, did they? And like, all the films have retconned the original's alchemy to be alchemy + lightning.
>>26424290I suppose. Not much of a horror buff, but it should be noted that Skaberen laboratories have been shown to be full of what appears to be relatively advanced electronic equipment.
>>26424359Mad scientistry tends to do that. I think the problem with guns is that, well, a gun would've probably solved the plot of a cheesy Frankenstein movie in minutes.Shit seems a lot less threatening when you have firearms. Like the whole, why not just shoot a shotgun at voldemort thing?
>>26424418I guess. But it would've made the setting more interesting (for me) if after Avacyn disappeared they discovered that it took their best guns with holy silver bullets to kill monsters (whereas pre-disappearance a simple talisman could fell a demon) rather than simple crossbows being enough. It would really drive home just how threatened humans were, seeing these modern icons of finality and human dominance barely puncturing the embalmed mutt-flesh of a rampaging skaab. And again, it would really demonstrate how big a deal the archangel's vanishing was, since a job once for a simple silver talisman now demands a finely-crafted, silver imbued blessed armament, which may not even be effective in some cases.
>>26424587Man, I'd call shark jumping so hard if that happened.
>>26424652Maybe. I guess that's likely their main fear. Still, they're willing to have actual fucking mortars and rocket launchers(which were in as far back as Revised, so that shark's probably died of old age/ paper cuts from flying cards by now).
>>26424701They've had some mistakes in the past for sure.I guess Mizzium Mortars doesn't bug me because it is obviously just a fancy name for a run of the mill magical burn spell.
>>26424776True. I just wish there'd be more... Consistency I suppose. Like how every cultures artificers can make a potentially combat-capable mechanical flying machine, but nobody can make a metal tube with explosives in it.
>>26423879>And it's not like it would ruin the game's flavour/balance either, since power and toughness are always indicative to how strong a creature is relative to others on it's home plane,But isn't Magic about using your universe hopping powers to teleport in an army and take over every Prime Material plane in the multiverse? If Cthulhu and a steampunk tank squadron operate on completely different power levels, how does the latter manage to damage the first?
>>26424895I think here's where there's a rift between game balance and universe. I mean, you have really harsh planes out there full of big brutal things like Zendikar, and you also have relatively low-powered planes like Ravnica. If power and toughness were universally consistent between plains, then either they could never experiment with truly dangerous places for fear of balance issues, or everything would be utterly unbalanced (how's a Bantian Knight supposed to fight a Phyrexian one?).I guess what I'm trying to say is that in-game power is relative to the creature's home plane, and although flavour-wise one point of X plane's power isn't equivalent to the same amount on Y, it is in game terms to be consistent and balanced
The fuck is all this Magic discussion all of a sudden? Stay on topic of bondburgers.
