Someone please find the original thread if you can, so I can post it here.


Hopefully some of you remember this but for those who don't: Unnatural is not normal magic design, neither is it un-card design. Unatural is about making a card that makes sense when you read it but has absolutely no rules value. Unfortunately the only example I can currently remember is the classic indicate.

Indicate U
Instant
Target

My personal favorite that I made for the last thread:

Home Improvement :1: :w: :u:
Instant

Choose one: Add a threshold to target gate, or plane target counter top.


Edit: http://community.wizards.com/content/fo ... ic/3698501 <-that's the thread I started, which has a link to the original in it.

Also, for reference: The Comprehensive Rules

So, I guess the name of the card is excluded from the restriction?

Depression | :b:
Instant
Draw a card and lose 1 life. Then cry about it since you fail at everything. Every person everywhere realizes it, and you should, too.

Hope | :w:
Instant
The next time you would discard a card this game, don't discard a card instead. Find your power from within and take heart; life is full of win.
