I was wondering how many magic questions people can think of that could fit into the much maligned IQ test.

For example ancestral recall is to ancestral visions as lightning bolt is to?

and the answer would be rift bolt.

a) Land, Creature, Artifact, Planeswalker, ______?

b) Forcespike, Rune Snag, Mana Leak, ______?

c) Bloodbirth Viper, Ophidian, ______?


2) Who am I? :

a) I am a legacy staple, cheap, soft and free but bouncey.

b) I have 1 cmc and what happens to me happens to you.

c) I am the blade for machines.

greenbear your ?? is as to this as ?? is to this make Zero sense. you are just taking cards that are similar and putting them together, Bump in the night and lava spike are Very different cards as are careful study and faithless looting. No to mention mana leak, rune snag and force spike are vastly different also, mana leak and rune snag are close but force spike does not belong in this sentence as its horrible. lightning bolt deals 3 damage for 1 mana Rift bolt deals 3 damage "later on". same goes for recall and visions Also recall can be aimed at your opponent. Diabolic tutor is horrible while demonic is good. Same goes for cancel and counterspell. I do not see how this makes any sense

OK, so Greenbear did not mention Rune Snag...
Sooo your post is trollage?

Complete the sequence (in IQ tests requests you to see a theme in the items presented and predict the next item) Thus:

Force Spike "unless they pay 1," "Rune Snag (taken by itself - "unless they pay 2," Mana Leak "unless they pay 3." it makes perfect sense...

See if you can figure out the: "Who am I?" questions.

Radioactivez, it works by spotting trends the difference between recall and visions, is recall is an instant, visions is a sorcery, and has suspended, the effect the cards produce once cast are identical. In the same vein lightning bolt, is a instant, whilst rift bolt is a sorcery, that also has suspend, that is once again once cast identical to the other spell.

It works the same with the careful study example, except the cards have different colours now and both have a flashback cost. however its less good an example, as lava spike deals damage, whilst bump in the night is life loss.

See if you can come up with one:)

I agree with lord cuddles on convolute

the who am I the first one is daze

b I have no idea

c skullclamp cranial plating maybe I'm not sure

I can not work out the land, creature, artifact, planeswalker question

c on the complete the sequence is clearly an ophidian creature that costs less than 3 mana, but I have no idea what that card is.

All good fun.

Convolute, correct! Jackal Pup - Well played! Daze - Correct!

Complete the sequence

a) 'permanent types' = Enchantment.

b) 'Mono blue snake creatures' = Ribbon snake

Who am I?

c) I didn't invent this one - but Sword of the Meek is apparently the correct answer....
