I think it's about time we ventured into an Un-set. And so my Extract is a whacky removal from such a set.

Extract - Remove target permanent from any sleeves it's in. It gains “0: Put this card in any sleeves you own, then sacrifice it.”
Live Dangerously

Sorcery (Uncommon)

Extract.

Each player orders a coffee and a peanut butter sandwich.

_

Painted Minefield

Enchantment (Rare)

When ~ enters the battlefield, Extract X times.

Each player must paint a picture using water colours during other players’ turns.

_

The Devil

Legendary Creature - Evil Incarnate (Mythic)

Flying

Whenever a player takes a bite of a food or a sip of a drink, Extract.

Praise the sun for a black keyword!!

I have two very similar ideas with despair, one regarding you and one your opponents. Both could be defined as Despair X, though.

Firstly the one regarding you:

Nightmarer

Creature - Nightmare - Uncommon

Despair 1, : Target creature gets -1/-1 until end of turn. (To Despair 1, exile the top card of your library. You lose 1 life.)

It's always there, waiting.

P/T 1/3

_

Mentally Deranged

Enchantment - Mythic

Despair 2: Draw a card. (To Despair 2, exile the top two card of your library. You lose 2 life.)

But I know it's true! - Found written on the wall of the mental ward.

And the one regarding your opponents:

Void Fuel

Creature - Horror - Rare

Protection from everything.

Whenever Void Fuel deals combat damage to an opponent, you may sacrifice a permanent. If you do, choose one:

  • draw a card

  • each opponent discards a card

  • destroy target creature.

Despair 5 (Any player may exile the top five cards of their library anytime they could play an instant. They lose 1 life for each card exiled this way. Sacrifice Void Fuel.)

Suddenly, there was silence.

P/T 3/3

_

The End

Sorcery - Rare

Destroy all creatures.

Despair 2 (Any player may exile the top two cards of their library anytime they could play an instant. They lose 1 life for each card exiled this way. Counter The End.)

Or is it?

Honestly, sounds like The Scorpion God is the perfect choice for you. I have one and it's one of tho most fun decks I ever made. Take a look, if you want, also it's easily under 250 bucks. The Scorpio Juggernaut

What comes to my mind when I read the word Nobility is that if you act nobly (are from a noble origin) you can do things others wouldn’t allow you to otherwise. With that in mind, my Nobility:

Duke of Gavony’s Messenger

Creature - Human Noble - Uncommon

Nobility - At the beginning of your upkeep, you may have each opponent draw a card and gain 2 life. If you do, Duke of Gavony can’t be blocked this turn.

P/T 2/3

_

Throne of Eldraine

Legendary Artifact - Mythic

Nobility - At the beginning of your upkeep, you may have each opponent draw a card and gain 2 life. If you do, your opponents can’t cast spells this turn.

_

Turntimber Glade

Enchantment - Rare

Nobility - At the beginning of your upkeep, you may have each opponent draw a card and gain 2 life. If you do, you may play an additional land this turn.

Ok everyone, a week has passed so I think it’s time to move from Collide to the next challenge.

First of all, I think all of your entries were great and so you made the choice quite hard for me. That’s a good thing, though, because every one of those is interesting.

The only thing that saddens me a bit is that I hoped someone would try to make Collide somehow associated with lands (you know, as in “When Two Worlds Collide” or something like that) but that’s a very minor grief.

dbpunk: The first creature-related take on Collide creates a difficult choice for the opponent, to take damage or lose at least one and possibly two permanents. It’s quite simple and fits the flavour of the mechanic well.

TypicalTimmy: I was absolutely thrilled by the idea of reverse (or defence) trample at first, but as I was thinking about it more, I began to think if it would ever do anything, actually? Because I would probably never attack into a creature that’s bigger than my attacker even if it didn’t hurt me afterwards. And so I think the idea is great in itself but needs to have a different outcome (do something for each point of damage of the colliding creature) or perhaps Flash? Anyway, I still like it a lot.

Boza and DwaginFodder: So first of all, interaction with the stack is something I never thought of when coming with Collide, so that itself amazed me. And to have two users to come up with it at basically the same time (six minutes from each other and both entries probably took more time to write) is incredible. Kudos to you both!

However, as was already stated, Boza’s entry would probably not work as intended on sorcery or enchantment without flash. The instant submission on the other hand is perfect.

DwaginFodder’s mechanic works better from the get-go, I just think that the presented cards are a little bit too powerful, because they’re limited only to being played in response to something. In this regard I think Boza’s limitation to the same cmc is better.

PlaysWithFire submitted the final Collide. And this one is so nice! Guaranteed to do SOMETHING, this mechanic would require careful designing and playtesting, because it would allow plenty of shenanigans if you countered it yourself. It is very flavourful, though, because if you interact with these cards in pretty much any way, you get a collision. Well done!

I had to double-check, but it seems that Tzefick didn’t submit their own take on Collide? Why not?

As it is, we have only 5 participants this time so I don’t want to announce a top 3, because as I already said, I liked all of them a lot.

After careful consideration, the one I liked the most is the one from PlaysWithFire, so congratulations to you and please provide us with the next keyword.

Woiteck, Golgari Artificer

+1 Create a 1/1 Black and Green [not sure of creature type] token or a Clue token.

-3 Destroy target creature or artifact or return target creature or artifact from your graveyard to the battlefield.

-8 Return all creatures and artifacts from your graveyard to the battlefield, than each opponent loses X life and you gain X life, where X is the number of creatures and artifacts you control.

Starting loyalty 4

Self-explanatory, I guess.
