My name is Casper k√łneke, I started playing Magic in 2010, so I've been playing Magic for a few years..

Speaking of Phyrexia, that's the next challenge: an updated Praetor (Keep in mind, we know that Elesh Norn has killed Urabrask and Sheoldred and taken over their territory.)

TypicalTimmy I think it's a alternate cost to paying the colorless mana. So sort of like a colorless phyrexian mana, but not quite (note that it is not a 1:1 relation between the number of life paid and the amount of mana saved).

Scallywallwest I think the mechanic works, but the spell could use a little streamlining. If no spell or ability ends, what happens to things like lightningbolt? Or to mana abilities? It would probably be better to have it say "end the turn", similar to Sundial of the Infinite.

As for your challenge, I really enjoy digging deep into the lore for these. So here goes:

Chromium's Retreat

Blood Drain 5

: draw a card

: draw two cards

: draw three cards

Enchantment - Saga

When he learned of the death of Piru, Chrominum retreated from the world in grief.

Kithkin Farmhand

Creature - Kithkin

When Kithkin Farmhand enters the battlefield, untap target plains or forest you control.

1/1


All I know about Kithkin is they are basically hobbits.

Next: Wildcard.

I think this qualifies as "transforms as a punishment", it's a huge creature for just one {U}, but all you have to do is block it and then it dies.

I also think it's flavorful that you have to buff it to "boost its confidence" enough for it to transform again (dealing 0 damage is not considered combat damage).

I imagine the art would be something like this huge shadow monster, then it transforms into a tiny Kaladeshi gremlin making shadow puppets.


Next: a card for your favourite tribe.

Oops, Apparently I was on the wrong page.

Flavor: "To save my world, I'm prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice" - Urza Planeswalker.


Challenge: metalcraft

Flavor: "Now The Champion was ready to face down the beast" - The Theriad


In line with the theme of Theros, it references the Magical girdle that Athena gave Bellerophon to instantly tame the Pegasus, when he went to kill the Chimera.

It's called social anxiety combined with near encyclopedic knowledge of mythology, theology, demonology, and just about every other -ology that forms the real world basis for cards in Magic the Gathering.

I can quote from both The Silmarillion and some of Shakespeare's works from memory, I studied ritualistic magic as a teen, I'm a former Doxx'er, I'm an educated mathematician and physicist (double degree). So my "superpower" is: I know things.

But that can also lead to over analyzing a thing (too many cards in hand). And my social anxiety in larger groups can be crippling at times (in inability to attack when there are creatures around).


Anyway, enough self-analyzing from me: same challenge as above.

May 22, 2020 10:10 p.m.

Kiran_M I don't remember if I have posted this here before, but I think it fit your criteria. I created this a long time ago for another Card Creation Challenge on Facebook (the promt was: counter to you most hated card).

Flavour: "Knowing too much can have deadly consequences. Especially when dealing with the House Dimir"

I played a lot of Modern at the time, and my most hated card was Spellskite.


Next challenge: New Eldrazi Titan

May 21, 2020 9:59 a.m.

philias there's a button called "Custom Card" at the top of the comment box. It's next to the "add mana symbol" button.

kpres my problem with Azor's Original Guildpact, is that while Azor wrote the first guild pact, it was not biased towards any single guild. Your's is clearly an Azorius card, which the other guilds would never have accepted.

As for your challenge:

Next Challenge: a Saga with flash.

May 20, 2020 11:32 a.m.

xjewgambitx We don't actually know what the original said, but we do know from Tome of the Guildpact that it is a sizeable tome, so representing Ravnican in a single card might be impossible, so here's an attempt to depict one of the parts of the Guildpact.

There would probably need to be a complete cycle of ten of these, but I would need quite a bit of time to figure out how to balance them against each other.

TheWild1s

Flavor text: When Heliod was exiled to the underworld, even his name was banished. Now only Kruphix remembers.


I had to make the lines of text a list, otherwise they wouldn't fit on the card.

I don't know if this is exactly what you imagined, I considered doing him colorless, but I couldn't figure out a way to do devotion, short of saying "devotion to WUBRG is less than 25", so I created a Enchantment themed Constricting Sliver combined with a repeatable Banishing Light instead.


Next challenge: non-legendary dragon that cares about other dragons.

May 20, 2020 8:49 a.m.

TypicalTimmy, I feel the reason why WotC cannot define a rule for sentient creatures, is because it would depend greatly on where that specific card is from, especially in regards to constructs and the undead. For example, a construct creature from Kaladesh or Dominaria is unlikely to be sentient, but if we get a reprint of that same creature on Mirrodin, it is almost certainly sentient. Just look at the Myr, I think most would argue that they are sentient, but they were supposed to be mindless robot drones (albeit with an advanced AI).

I think there's an official article discussing the emergence of sentience among the Myr (there's a bit of in-universe debate about which was the first self-aware Myr).

Epicurus:

The reference should be obvious: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The reason for the Mad Tea Party is that the Hatter pissed off Father Time, so as punishment, the Hatter is essentially suspended (ie Detained) in a time where it is always teatime.


lordlovat:

The Einherjar were the mortal worriors who fell and were chosen to go to Valhalla by the Valkyries.


'night everybody, I'm going to bed, so for the next challenge: do a wildcard.

May 19, 2020 7:44 p.m. Edited.

Scallywallwest Correct me if I'm wrong, but as I remember the book Finnick's death was pretty pointless (It's been a few years so I could be wrong).

As I remember, he only died because he was the last in that tunnel, but in this version his death actively helps his "team" get to where they need to go: President Snow (aka your opponent's face).


Next: More literary references! Doesn't have to be characters though.

May 19, 2020 4:01 p.m.

In answer to Rorolith's challenge:

I'm not sure this counts as a "book character", so do this challenge again.
