Punny Djinns

Posted in Arcana on August 8, 2005

By Wizards of the Coast

The color-counting djinns from Invasion were based on creatures designed for the never-printed Unglued 2. This cycle of Unglued 2 djinns were a bit of templating away from being ready for print -- they already had punny djinn names, art by Edward P. Beard, Jr., and in some cases flavor text! In honor of Invasion Week, today we present the full text and art of these proto-Invasion cards. (Click each djinn's card name to see the Invasion card it inspired.)

Ruham Djinn

Creature — Djinn
W: Cotton Djinn gains first strike until end of turn.
Cotton Djinn gets +2/+2 as long as white is the most common color among the permanents in play. If white is tied with another color for most common color, Cotton Djinn still gets +2/+2.
“Now hold on just a cotton-pickin’ minute...”
