Magic: The Gathering has a new Infinity card called Devil K. Nevil, a legendary creature whose description links you to a guide on its official website. Type it into your browser and you’ll get a YouTube video called “K. Nevil’s Rules of Devil Jumping,” a two-minute walkthrough that should make things easier.
It begins by telling you to place a card hanging slightly over the table. Then arrange all the creatures on the table horizontally above Devil K. Nevil – the edges can touch but cannot overlap. You can place as many as you want, but Devil K. Nevil will only get a bonus if he clears them all.
Yes, it’s literal – this is not a bonus based on the number of cards or anything written down. You must actually flip the card over the creatures you placed with one hand, and the bonus will increase depending on how many creatures you manage to pass. If any part of the map touches creatures, you don’t get the bonus.
You can use Devil K. Nevil with or without card sleeves, but you can’t make any changes to spice it up for a big jump. No thrusters, no rocket propellers – nothing. Or more realistically, without sleeve weights or bending. You can only use the card in normal condition.
After you turn your MTG card into a Tech Deck, you have to put the creatures back where you got them from, so it’s best to remember where each one was taken from, or make a note of it before you make the big leap. “Don’t worry about him, he’s been through worse”.
Devil K. Nevil is a parody of Robert Craig “Evel” Knievel, a famous American stuntman who was known for his big motorcycle jumps. Now you can recreate his antics in MTG, if that was ever something you even remotely considered – just don’t cheat. With one hand, move a little and see where the cards are literally well yes.
