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.
As a quick note, in addition to the URL above, Peculiar Flavor can now be found at FlavorText.LOL. It goes to the exact same site, I just thought it’d be fun to have a dedicated domain name.
On this Roundup: Elephant Resurgence, Nuisance Engine, Riddle of Lightning, and Lantern-Lit Graveyard!
An early cut of Dumbo tested very poorly with audiences, particularly with little children horrified by the scene in which Dumbo’s mother was resurrected as a zombie.
Nuisance Engine, aka your mom whenever she asks you if you’ve met someone nice, yet.
When ancient Greek playwrights wanted Zeus’ opinion of their latest tragedy, they’d simply hold the manuscript aloft to get his opinion.
“Honestly, why do we even bother lighting these things every night? The only people that come here when it’s dark are those punk teenagers that knock over the headstones.”
Is there a card you’d like to see infused with a Peculiar Flavor? Request it!
