*Ok, this is actually a reference joke that requires a bit of explanation, and some digging through the Wayback online archives. Longlong ago, before even the Beforetimes, during the previews for New Phyrexia, Noel deCordova (I think) wrote an article that compared the various monocolor factions of New Phyrexia to various genres of Metal music. He said that Green was Acoustic Metal, and then went on to burst the seeming contradiction in terms with a link to Tamacun.
Elesh Norn: I TOLD YOU TO BRING HIM TO US, AND SEND THE OTHER TO JIN-GITAXIAS FOR RECONDITIONING! YOU DARE DEFY A DIRECT ORDER?!
Guard: *Staying stock-still in panic, talking through clenched teeth and lips* But you also directly ordered us to, and I quote, "stand perfectly, inhumanly still, and woe be to the legionnaire who shirked this distinction to so much as wipe away a blemish on its armor."
Norn: Well, obviously, if I give you a new order that contradicts a previous order, then the new order supercedes the previous one for as long as the new one is being carried out. Once the new order has been fulfilled, the previous order goes right back into effect, you blithering idiot!
Second Guard: *Also in a panic similiar to the first* What, you mean like the LIFO rules for the Stack?
Norn: *As she's flensing them* NO METAHUMOR! I HATE METAHUMOR!!
First Guard: Then why are you participating in this extended bit of metahumor?
Norn: *Decapitates the first guard in frustration* You just can't get good help these days, not even if you create them yourself! Right, you insolent, devious little prick, what was it you wanted?
Tezzeret: *Desperately trying hard not to show the laughter that's paroxysmically rocking his entire body, and failing as badly as Harvey Korman*
So, last night I had the idea to do an Acorn card based off of the Droste effect, where the card art is the card itself, with a deeper layer of the card's rules text, and you would progress through the layers to get more powerful abilities (sort of like a level up creature, or a Class, that progresses along the z axis), but then I realized it's far too much work, for literally zero payoff, and I'm a lazy bastard.
So have a repost of a stupid idea that's kinda similar:
Inception Legendary Enchantment Indestructible, shroud Cumulative upkeep—Shahrazad(At the beginning of your upkeep, put an age counter on this permanent, then sacrifice it unless you pay its upkeep cost for each age counter on it.) ----------------------------------------------------- “We have to go deeper!”
Lazotep Convert is yet more proof that Nicol Bolas would've won against the Phyrexians.
