    Community Contest -- Songs of the Shards

    This contest is now closed.

    Hey everyone! Dino here.

    I am back with another community contest

    One of my favorite community building exercises to rise from gaming over the years is the Songs of the Summoned from League of Legends. If you are unfamiliar, you can go here or just type "Songs of the Summoned" into YouTube. There are a billion of them.

    Now sadly, music is not one of my gifts. I have never been *told* that I sound like a mad cat in a washing machine, but I think that is just because there have never been any survivors

    Still, I have been known to pick up a pen from time to time, and late last night I couldn't get this out of my head:

    Set to Kelis - Milkshake

    My Hex cards bring all the boys to the yard,
    My topdecks
    Are better than yours,
    And you’re like “why are mine so poor?,”
    I can teach you,
    But I have to charge

    I know you want it,
    The thing that makes me,
    What the guys go crazy for.
    They lose their minds,
    The way I wind,
    The curve’s so fine

    La la-la la la,
    Warm it up.
    Lala-lalala,
    The shards are waiting

    My Hex cards bring all the boys to the yard,
    My topdecks
    Are better than yours,
    And you’re like “why are mine so poor?,”
    I can teach you,
    But I have to charge

    I can see you’re on it,
    You want me to teach thee
    Techniques that freaks these cards,
    It can't be bought,
    Just know, thieves get caught,
    Watch if your smart,

    La la-la la la,
    Warm it up.
    Lala-lalala,
    The shards are waiting

    My Hex cards bring all the boys to the yard,
    My topdecks
    Are better than yours,
    And you’re like “why are mine so poor?,”
    I can teach you,
    But I have to charge

    Oh, once you get involved,
    Everyone will look this way-so,
    You must maintain your charm,
    And windmill slam the play-o,
    Just get the perfect hand,
    Plus what you have within,
    Then next his eyes are squint,
    Then he's begun to sweat,

    La la-la la la,
    Warm it up.
    Lala-lalala,
    The shards are waiting

    My Hex cards bring all the boys to the yard,
    My topdecks
    Are better than yours,
    And you’re like “why are mine so poor?,”
    I can teach you,
    But I have to charge

    So! My challenge to you is to do the same. I am calling on all the creatives out there (or just anyone with a spare bit of time). Write me the next Song of the Shards!

    Super extra bonus points if you actually perform the song, but to enter all you need to do is post your lyrics below with a link to the music so we can get an idea of how it would play. I will be giving away packs to the 3 entries I like best:

    1st - 5 Set 3 Packs
    2nd - 3 Set 3 Packs
    3rd - 1 Set 3 Pack

    The contest will remain up until Jan 1st to give you guys some time to get inspired. I will close it out before I leave to spend the holidays with my folks (don't worry, there will be a warning).

    Happy hexing everyone!

    Titania’s Majesty

    To the tune of Richard Cory - Simon & Garfunkel

    They say that Titania’s Majesty owns one half of this whole meta,
    With elves and Cressida to spread its wealth around.
    Born into battle, an archetype already made.
    It had everything a card could want: power, grace, and style.

    But I don’t have a playset.
    And I curse the deck I’m running
    and I curse my Kismet.
    And I wish that I could beat,
    Oh, I wish that I could beat,
    Oh I wish that I could beat
    Titania’s Majesty.

    The forums discuss its power almost every single day,
    Titania’s Majesty wins another, Titania’s Majesty you say?
    And the rumors of the winnings, and the killing of the lot
    Oh it surely must be happy with claiming the top spot.

    But I don’t have a playset.
    And I curse the deck I’m running
    and I curse my Kismet.
    And I wish that I could beat,
    Oh, I wish that I could beat,
    Oh I wish that I could beat
    Titania’s Majesty.

    It freely ran with wilds, it liked the ruby touch.
    And we were grateful for the power and we thanked it very much.
    So my mind was filled with wonder when the banner post read:
    “Titania's Majesty went home last night, and was banned from PVP.”

    But I don’t have a playset.
    And I curse the deck I’m running
    and I curse my Kismet.
    And I wish that I could beat,
    Oh, I wish that I could beat,
    Oh I wish that I could beat
    Titania’s Majesty.

    If Phenteo said it then we can assume that's what his native language sounds like in the Hex lore, it's official canon now.

    My ode about underplayed cards and the stigma that meta creates (in any game) in pro players only playing half the game. Set to Sir Mix-a-lot's, Baby Got Back

    Uzume Got Back

    Oh, my, God. Dino, look at her buns (referring to baby bunnies)
    There are so many, she looks like
    One of those cards some casual would play.
    But, ya know, who understands those casuals guys?
    They only play her, because,
    She looks like a total Concubunny, 'kay?
    I mean, she has, like a million babies randomly
    I can't believe there's just so many, it's like her religion or something
    I mean gross, look
    She's just so, shin'hair

    I like war-riors and I can not lie
    You other hexers can't deny
    That when a dwarf walks in with no way to reproduce
    And a beard up in your face
    You get sprung, want to pull up shards
    'Cause you notice that deck was stacked
    Deep in the deck she's waitin
    I need the shards and I'm starvin
    Oh bunny, I want to draw ya
    And play ya
    My guildmates tried to warn me,
    But with that random shinhair you got makes (Me so happy)
    Ooh, Bun-O-matic
    You say you want to get in me the Winz?
    Well, get played, help me
    'Cause you ain't that average concubunny

    I've seen her generatin'
    To hell with playin cards from my hand'
    She's fun, rare,
    Got it goin' like shes got speed
    I'm tired of that ruby wild thing
    Sayin' shes a crap rare
    Hexers, that aint even fair
    She gotta pack much back
    So, Hexers (Yeah) Clampions (Yeah)
    Has your deck got the Uzum? (Hell yeah)
    Tell 'em to Play it (Play it) Play it (Play it)
    Play that awesome card
    Uzume got back (O.P. plays with a casual playstyle)

    Uzume got back (O.P. plays with a casual playstyle)

    I like 'em fun, and new
    And when I'm playin a game
    I just can't help myself, I'm actin' like a casual
    Now here's my scandal
    I want to make you meta
    And get my tickets like a vandal
    I ain't talkin' bout V-Ks
    Just pump out dem Bunays
    I wanta playset
    So I can play it
    Greelic's in trouble
    Beggin' for a Uzume Double
    So I'm lookin' to rock IQ
    With an army of random dudes
    You can have them netdecks
    I'll keep strats like flo jets
    A word to the meta playas, I want to show ya theres more cards
    Even if you don't think they hit that hard
    But I gotta be straight when I say I want to metabreak
    Til yo booties shake
    Uzume got it goin' on
    A lot of pros won't like this song
    'Cause them punks like to play the same three decks
    And I'd rather stay and play
    Cause I play the entire game strong
    And I'm down to get fun decks on
    So, players (Yeah) hexers (Yeah)
    If you want to have fun with hex (Yeah)
    Then change your decks, take a risk
    Even pro players got to shout
    Uzume got back

    Uzume got back
    Yeah, players, when it comes to meta
    Uzume ain't got no love
    So player let me getcha
    To try on a new kinda glove

    Uzume got back!

    Fun fact! Parody is a protected category of speech in US copyright law. If you are changing the words for comedic effect (and especially if you are not making a profit off of the work) making silly songs should fall under fair use.

    TL;DR - post away!

    Maybe you won't be the only one embarrassing themselves this time.
    Also nothing could be worse than that Rap no one remembers.
