During a stay on MTG Salvation, I found a few fun forum games this forum doesn't have. I decided to port some of them over, this one included. (Original game devised by MTG Salvation user meteo63 here.)
Shift the Card works on a post-by-post basis like other similar games here; each player comments on the card above, posts a card that meets the specifications given by the previous poster, then sets a challenge for the next one that demands doing one of the following to an existing MTG card:
1) Timeshift: Make a brand-new card that refers or alludes to the previous. Example: Verdant Embrace which refers to the Embrace cycle from Urza's Saga and Verdant Force.
2) Planeshift: Make a copy of the previous card, except in a new color and with new flavor. Be sure to include flavor text. The copy doesn't need to be exactly to the latter, as long as it produces the same or a very similar end result. Examples: Piracy Charm, shifted from Funeral Swarm; Calciderm, shifted from Blastoderm.
3) Alternate: Remake the previous card in a new color with new abilities that match that color. Example: Akroma, Angel of Fury, shifted from Akroma, Angel of Wrath.
4) Futureshift: Make a card that's a reference to the previous card but shifted forward in time, either flavourfully (as an offspring of a person or otherwise a representation of the passage of much time) or mechanically (similarly to the unique and hitherto unseen cards of Future Sight).
To start things off: timeshift Lys Alana Scarblade.
