10k, the Carrion Crow
Legendary Creature - Rogue
10k, the Carrion Crow, can't be blocked.
Whenever 10k, the Carrion Crow, deals combat damage to a player, exile the top card of their library face down.
Discard a card: Look at target player's hand. You may exile a card from it face down. Activate this ability only any time you could cast a Sorcery, or on any player's End Step.
While any card exiled by 10k, the Carrion Crow, remains in exile, you may play it, and you may spend mana as though it were mana of any color to play it.
I could make a half-dozen cards for myself, depending on my mood, which is why I've never participated in one of these challenges before.
The Carrion Crow is the clever thief aspect, the part that will take and utilize any implement or tool at their disposal to triumph. This is why I thrive in EDH above all other places: I'm great at both politics and strategy, setting up other people to do the dirty work while I subtly bleed off their resources.
Make another card mirroring a facet of yourself.

For each opponent, create a token that's a copy of a creature they control, except it's a blue illusion in addition to it's other types and colors. Exile these tokens at end of turn.
Enchantment Creature - Beast
When Stormfront Pack enters the battlefield or attacks, reveal the top card of each opponent's library, then choose one card revealed this way. If that card is a permanent, put a token onto the battlefield that's a copy of that permanent. If that card is an instant or sorcery, you may cast a copy of that card without paying it's mana cost.
Rolled a 6 for a 5 and a 2. Then I realized...I could...do all of them.
But I did both.
Here, let's try this. I made (almost!) a titan, a la Sun Titan. Considering how CMC6+ creatures need ETB abilities and just to be powerful, let's try making a new "cycle" of "titan"s! The catch? They're high-level demigods from Theros, created by the will of multiple gods.
Thus, it needs the following traits:
-Needs ETB ability, which also triggers on attack. Try not to reuse previous titan abilities.
-Three or more colors. They must also express the gods involved in their creation, if not by rules then by flavor. Example: Stormfront Pack is related to Keranos, Nylea, and Kruphix.
-On the edge of constructed viability.
Go forth, little ones. Restriction breeds creativity!

The Duel of Fate
Legendary Planeswalker - Bolas Ugin
+4: Destroy target noncreature permanent and target colored permanent.
-2: Gain control of up to two target creatures or planeswalkers. They gain haste. Sacrifice them at end of turn.
-X: Duel of Fate deals X damage to each other planeswalker and each creature.
-14: Exile all other nonland permanents. All players discard their hands.
The idea with this card isn't that Bolas and Ugin are helping you out, because that'd be OP.
The card is that Bolas and Ugin are still dueling and you're just dealing with the side effects. Remember, this isn't Amonhket Bolas, or Alara Bolas. This is Pre-Mending Bolas and Pre-Mending Ugin. It's an apocalypse.
Make another two-for-one deal.

Schmendrick, Incompetent Magician
Legendary Creature - Human Wizard
: Put target instant or sorcery spell on the bottom of its owner's library. That spell's controller then reveals cards from the top of their library until they reveal an instant or sorcery spell. They may cast that spell without paying it's mana cost. Then that player shuffles their library.
I didn't mean to do that, honest!
Creature - Wierd
When you cast Unstable Wierd, it deals 2 damage to target player or planeswalker.
"I guess you can't mix self-propogating waves with a constantly looping ion coil. But maybe if I amp the power up a bit more...."
Well, my knowledge of The Last Unicorn comes from long ago and a brief scan over the Wikipedia article, but I think this is good? Also, it's a fun card. Is it a counterspell? Or just a spell polymorph? Who knows!
The problem with creatures with Jump Start is that Jump Start exiles the spell while it's on the stack, as soon as it resolves. So you need a cast trigger for it to matter. This makes it really tricky to balance payoffs, because you spend a card to cast the card in the first place. Eh. Unstable Wierd was nice though. Captures something very Izzet, that they keep trying to make new wierds...that never work, so they hurt something and aren't very useful. But you never know, try doing it again! It might work this time!
Okay, this is something that's come up a couple of times.
I generally don't like people doing requests about specific fiction, especially if it chains into a long term thing. It has a tendency to lock people out. Generally, if I'm going to do something for specific fiction, I leave an extra, option challenge you can look at instead.
But the requests are the requests. If you're going to hop in the middle of a chain, reiterate the previous challenge. Don't toss in an unrelated one. Yours can wait.
Make something that futzes with cards on the stack, a la Schmendrick or Nivmagus Elemental.

You Will Bleed For My Amusement
If a player would be dealt damage, they discard a card.
If a player would discard a card, they lose 1 life.
At the beginning of each end step, if an opponent discarded three or more cards this turn or took 5 or more damage, abandon this scheme.
Archenemy is one of my favorite formats. I don't know if this scheme fits what you wanted, but I think that it has some promise: threatens the Archenemy, but it's of far more benefit to the Archenemy then to their opponents.
Make another scheme card that leans white. We don't have enough white villains in MtG. Remember the name! It's the most important part.

Tomar, Zealous Lawmage
Legendary Planeswalker - Tomar
+1: Create two 1/1 red and white Soldier creature tokens with Haste.
+1: Detain target nonland permanent.
-3: You get an emblem with ", exile this Emblem: Copy target instant or sorcery with converted mana cost X you control. You may choose a new target for the copy."
-7: Detain all nonland permanents your opponents control. Tomar, Zealous Lawmage deals 3 damage to each opponent and each creature your opponents control.
To Be Sure
Copy target instant or sorcery spell with one or more targets.
"Better do it one more time."
Tomar is an Azorius lawmage with a particular affinity for a more...bombastic approach to enforcing the law. He uses whatever he deems necessary, which often includes pyroclastic displays, semi-tested Izzet technology, and favors called in from Boros.
Then I had the idea for To Be Sure. It can't redirect targets, so you're stuck with whatever you were killing/targeting initially. But if you need two bolts on the same thing, or even better, double damage/draw for Electrolyze....
Make a 'walker that every ability concerns emblems somehow. DO NOT make it OP, skew UP if you can't tell. Try not to make it...too complicated. :D
October 8, 2018 11:59 p.m.
Creature - Human Wizard Soldier
When Wojek Replicator enters the battlefield, copy target instant or sorcery with converted mana cost X you control. You may choose a new target for the copy.
One thing that Boros and Izzet share are a love of spectacular entrances.
The Madaran Rift
Enchantment - Saga
: Exile target creature or planeswalker from your graveyard. Sacrifice a land.
: Scry 3 and you lose 3 life.
: Exile target creature, then return the exiled creature or planeswalker from exile to the battlefield.
Legendary Planeswalker - Corvo
+1: Corvo Tempestas becomes a 1/2 Bird creature with Flying until your next turn. It gains haste.
0: Scry 1. Creatures without flying can't attack Corvo Tempestas until your next turn.
-6: Create a token that's a copy of Corvo Tempestas for each spell that was cast this turn, except they aren't legendary.
There were two when I started. Then I got ninja'd. You're welcome.
Wojek Replicator is influenced by a draft deck I piloted last weekend. I drafted every piece of removal that came to me, and ended up in Jeskai. I went undefeated.
The Madaran Rift tells the tale of Bolas returning to life, and then using another's life force to seal the Madaran Rift during the Time Spiral block. Yeah, this was already kind of told in The Eldest Reborn but I love Bolas so there.
Corvo Tempestas is the planeswalker we need. With a little bit of support, he can destroy anything! A swarm of bird 'walkers will do the trick nicely. Also tries to be a decent 2-mana 'walker. He turns into a Storm Crow for his +1, flies very high to do recon for his 0, and MAKES A STORM OF CROWS FOR HIS ULT.
Make another saga that represents the sealing of one of the rifts during Time Spiral. If you're not into old MtG lore, you can make another saga, with the following stipulation: some ticks must be positive, and others must be negative: a saga with a cost.

Artifact Creature - Knight Construct
When you cast Modular Knight, choose one:
-It has First Strike and Haste.
-It has Vigilance and enters the battlefield with two +1/+1 counters.
Make another permanent with Entwine.
October 3, 2018 11:32 p.m.
Artifact Creature - Knight Construct
When Modular Knight enters the battlefield, choose one:
-It gains First Strike and Haste.
-It gains Vigilance. Put two +1/+1 counters on it.
Make another permanent with Entwine.

Sheoldred, Heir to Phyrexia
Legendary Creature - Planeswalker
+2: Each player sacrifices a creature.
-3: Return target creature from a graveyard to the battlefield under your control. It's an artifact in addition to it's other types.
-11: You get an emblem with "You can't lose the game," and "At the beginning of your upkeep, sacrifice an artifact or creature you control or exile this emblem." Your life total becomes 0.
Bringing the Black back to Phyrexia. The ult is you achieving what level of compleation is possible of planeswalkers. Like everything else phyrexian, however, it has a cost....
Make another Phyrexian rare or mythic rare.
October 3, 2018 1:45 a.m.
Enchantment - Aura
You may activate abilities of enchanted planeswalker as if you controlled it during your turn.
Whenever you would add counters to enchanted planeswalker to pay for a cost, you may instead add 0 counters.
I think you'll find that I can be quite...convincing.
Make another 'walker enchantment.
October 2, 2018 3 p.m.
Counter target spell if it wasn't the first spell cast this turn. That spell's controller can't cast any spells until their next turn.
Order in the court!
White makes tax effects. This seems like a nice expansion on the concept, and throws in an extra Silence too while you're at it. In honor of Azorius coming in 3 months.
Make another white instant or sorcery with a "hatebear" effect.
October 2, 2018 11:26 a.m.
The Itsy Bitsy Spider
Legendary Creature - Spider
Whenever the Itsy Bitsy Spider would die or a player adds , exile the Itsy Bitsy Spider. Return it to the battlefield under your control at the end of the end.
I hate that I made that card.
Make a land that warps the way the game works for both players.
October 1, 2018 8:45 p.m.
The Greatest Wall
When The Greatest Wall enters the battlefield, sacrifice two lands.
Creatures can't attack you unless their controller pays .
: Destroy target creature that was attacking you that was dealt damage this turn.
Wow, this is weird. I dug around in my brain before deciding to make a land wall. Then I had to figure out what it did for simulating people falling off of it. I think I did pretty well.
If a creature is knocked unsteady on the wall, it might fall off!
Make another powerful land with a hefty cost to play.
October 1, 2018 7:28 p.m.
Wizard aggro is nice. I'm so happy Izzet is viable in standard now.
I think that you are drastically underestimating Risk Factor. Have you playtested with it at all? It's nuts: it works in Modern. Whatever your opponent picks, they're going to be hurting. It gives you late-game staying power and a way to close out the game, which is vitally important. I've playtested this a bit, you might stand to drop a land, and maybe a few of your 1-drop Jump Starts.
It will slow down your deck, but you can easily push your opponent down by a lot. Your curve already tops at three, so it's probably fine.
October 1, 2018 8:37 a.m.
At the beginning of each player's draw step, that player draws two cards.
At the end of each opponent's draw step, Fevered Visions deals X damage to that player, where X is the number of cards in their hand.
I want Owling Mine to be viable in Modern so much. Alas, it is not a Turn 4 deck.
Twofold challenge, pick one or both:
-Make your favorite rare a mythic!
-Make your most hated mythic a reasonable rare. (Looking at you, Doom Whisperer)
September 30, 2018 9:21 p.m.
I saw this deck concept and thought "Wow, this is so janky! I love it!"
Then I playtested it and thought "WHAT THE SHIT."
Well done with this. I love Cruel Ultimatum. Being able to play it five times in one turn is good for my soul.
September 26, 2018 4:29 p.m.
Copy-pasted from the previous post, for your convenience:
Challenge: Enough Daedric madness. The real monsters await in the Borderlands! Like Crawmerax! Terramorphous! Or even Verrimvorous! (basically pick one). (Post #46 on Page 229, TheRedGoat)
