Welcome to the Peculiar Flavor Roundup!
Every day at Peculiar Flavor, we bring you rejected flavor text from some of your “favorite” Magic cards. Whether it’s a visual joke, an absurd one-liner, or a response to the real flavor text, it’s guaranteed to make you laugh.* Each Monday on the Roundup, you’ll get to see a few of last week’s, ah… best entries.
On this Roundup: Experiment Kraj, Sun Droplet, Sunken Ruins, and Academy Rector!

“It says here you’ve missed class ten times this semester. That could jeopardize your graduation… [lets down hair, takes off glasses] now, what do you say we make those absences… disappear? [cue sexy synthesizer music]”
