You missed the funniest thing. Your Egg doesn't say that you can't target lands, it says you can't counter target land. That's hilarious because lands can't be countered in the first place! Somehow that's more funny to me than all that still hilarious gibberish.

I don't even play Magic, and I'm still declaring this the best Gallery of the Day ever. You may have more spells.

I made the mistake of reading this in the office...

I now have tears streaming, and am shaking uncontrollably with laughter!

It's also overpowered if you happend to be playing on a battfield rather then a gaming table.

then again it never says under your control, so I guess you just put the creatures down, and can't use them.

I laughed out loud at some of these. They are very entertaining. Had the computer generated real/useful cards, then no one would care. And if you purposefully made dumb cards, then no one would care. But, accidentally make some ridiculousness and you get notoriety.

Kind of like that 80-year old dong her best to restore the 100-yr-old Spanish fresco of Jesus.

Yeah I'm suddenly not so worried about Judgement Day. The day machines learn to play Magic is the day we all die.

What a fascinating insight into the growing process of a NN learning though.
Clearly, it's just trying to throw us off the scent.

I'm convinced Skynet is just the AI from War Games gone mad from too much tic-tac-toe. Magic will make it consider the metagame too much to be effective at total world domination.
