    Outflank - XU
    Sorcery - Uncommon

    Up to X target creatures can't be blocked this turn.

    Opportunity - If an opponent controls no untapped creatures, instead those target creatures gain "Whenever this creature deals combat damage to a player, draw a card." until end of turn.

    Thanks Sarge!

    I'll announce the next contest now. But by no means let that keep you from posting the reviews! I'd hate for anyone to miss out on a good review because of me.

    New contest:
    Design a card based on a game mechanic from a non-TCG game.

    Feel free to let us know what game you're referencing if it's something I might not get.

    *sigh* I'm sad, because flavour-text-wise the Cthulhu mythos is already represented by the eldrazi, but this mechanic is too good to waste.
    From Arkham Horror, JSYK

    Kethua of the Abyss - 10BB
    Legendary Creature- Ancient Horror MR
    A deck can only have one card named ~.
    If ~ is in your starting hand, you may exile it.
    Counters remain on ~ as it moves to any zone.
    When you cast a Horror spell, if ~ is exiled and you exiled it from your starting hand, put a doom counter on ~.
    When ~ is in exile and has 13 or more doom counters on it, put it onto the battlefield transformed.

    Kethua, the Ancient One
    Legendary Creature - Ancient Horror MR
    Shroud, Indestructible
    Counters remain on ~ as it moves to any zone.
    You can't lose the game and your opponents can't win the game.
    ~ can block any number of creatures
    ~ must block each creature if able.
    When ~ would be dealt damage, instead prevent all damage that source would deal this turn and remove a doom counter from ~.
    When ~ has no doom counters on it, sacrifice it. You lose the game.
    Remove a doom counter from ~: Return ~ from your graveyard or exile to play. Activate this ability only as a sorcery.

    Wavecast 2RR
    Instant - R
    Choose target instant or sorcery spell that targets only a single permanent. Copy that spell for each other permanent controlled by the same player as the spell's target the spell could target. Each copy targets a different one of those permanents.

    Based on the mechanic from SNES Final Fantasy games wherein you could make your attack spells target all opponents, at cost of reduced damage compared to just hitting a single foe. Reducing the effect of the spells would make an already complicated card much more wordy, so that part of the mechanic isn't emulated.

    Wording Help: Radiate

    Extra note: I think this card is okay balance-wise because Radiate is rather underpowered, and this card is more situational than it.

    This one is, obviously, from my favorite game. In case you can't figure it out, here's a picture that will hopefully help:

    (Made by my sister)




    Song of Time 1WW
    Instant - (Uncommon)


    Prevent all damage that would be dealt this turn.
    Return target creature card with CMC X from your graveyard to the battlefield, where X is less than or equal to the number of cards in your hand.
    Reveal your hand. Target opponent chooses up to X cards from it. Discard those cards.

    Edit: So, final version. Very wordy, but I didn't want it to simply be "Like Y card, except strictly better" or "Like Z card, except strictly worse". Because it is Uncommon instead of Common, I feel somewhat justified in wordiness and complexity, but I still feel like it's a little too wordy for an Uncommon card.

    I just checked that, and you're right. Thanks. It turns out I was comparing it to ones that put creatures from graveyard to hand.

    Fixed now, and not by changing the converted mana cost (Yet also keeping with the theme of the game mechanic).


    Although, now I suddenly got lots of ideas from the same game: Artifact - Equipments that are the masks, that change the properties of the attached creature. Maybe a Deku Mask that adds Plant to its type, changes its color to a green and gives it reach; a Goron Mask that gives it +1/+2, changes its color to red and gives it Protection from Red; a Blast Mask that gives it {R}, deal 1 damage to target creature and also deals 1 damage to itself; and so on.
    Anyway, I already made my card so I'm not making those.

    If this is what you want to use as the "drawback," then you need to add a "reveal your hand" clause; otherwise, there's no way for the opponent to verify it when you just say "no, I totally didn't have any others."

    Even with that fixed, I don't think that changes the power level concern. Reanimating a creature that cheaply is a massive, format-warping payoff, and it even comes with blanking an aggro deck's attack for a turn. It would be easy to fashion a reanimator deck that plays few, if any, other instants.

    Even with that fixed, I don't think that changes the power level concern. Reanimating a creature that cheaply is a massive, format-warping payoff, and it even comes with blanking an aggro deck's attack for a turn. It would be easy to fashion a reanimator deck that plays few, if any, other instants.
    That's a pretty valid point. (I didn't even consider the possibility of cheating...) Thanks!

    Anyway. I've now got three change ideas that I could do to make the drawback be a better power level concern. (1), Reveal hand, discard instants and sorceries, or (2) discard X cards, where X is CMC of card being brought back, or (3) reveal hand, opponent selects up to X (same X) cards for you to discard.
    Problems with (1) is that it only shuts down options in play. Problems with (2) is that it doesn't allow interaction from your opponent very much. (I read a design guide that said well-designed cards generally increase options for both you and your opponent.) Problems with (3) are that you can get arbitrarily strong creatures for the same cost of emptying your hand. I could combine (2) and (3) but that has the problem of being really wordy and complex. In spite of the complexity, I'll end up combining (2) and (3)...but I need to figure out how to word it still.

    Anyway anyway. I don't think it's particularly fair for people to continue helping me with my card when nobody else has been getting any help, so after this change I'm not going to make any more changes.
