    At the beginning of each end step, if you gained life this turn, you may pay 1WU. If you do, create a token that is a copy of another target nonland permanent with mana value less than or equal to the amount of life you gained this turn.

    Well done, have an internet point. That reminds me of one of my favorite bits of Blogatog pseudo-canon, which is that there are ninjas on every plane, bot just Kamigawa, but only the Kamigawa ones are slow enough to get caught on cards.

    This looks fantastically flexible. For all that the intent at deck building should be to copy your own triggers, it really comes into its own when you use it to steal the opponent's action.

    Moreso than any other card submitted, this lets me just spam copies of something.

    It's fine but not OP on something like Prophetic Prism for card draw. And it potentially sets up engine combos by copying engine pieces.

    But it's pointless on most artifacts. Legendary targets legend-rule themselves. Most static abilities are redundant. Spamming equipment copies leaves me on the hook for Equip costs. Mana rocks are a net-negative barring large rocks and multiple Replicates at which point I don't need more mana. If I aim it at, say, Myr Galvanizer, I get a bunch of big summoning-sick copies that go away before they can block; that's still more useful than the baseline, since it Overruns my existing Myr.

    I had a lot of cool things in mind when I saw the design. One by one, they turned out not to work until I was left with Sleeper Darts and Sapphire Medallions and nothing in the middle.

    Hmm, so you spend some mana casting spells, then you spend five more mana to give the next spell Storm, then you need more mana open to actually cast the spell?

    I think this is a knife-edge design that goes from practically useless to blatantly unfair with very little room for games in the middle, both in play and in balance tuning.

    This is very specific about the environments it works in. While it's a fantastic burst of value when it copies multiple ETB or LTB triggers, you're still attacking someone with a comparatively vulnerable 1/4. Even in formats like Two-Headed Giant, it requires going out of your way to protect it before it's better than a Clone.

    It's worth noting that this functions very differently off some very specific reanimation effects like Alesha Who Smiles at Death.

    New keyword mechanic! And it breaks the card if you don't use it! I think card's main cost is severely overpriced as a result...

    Evaluating the Ninjutsu side, it needs a lot of help getting through; the opponent can hold it off with a 1/1. The payoff if you get there, is a growing swarm of (probably) evasive threats. Between the evasive threats and the 4 power, this will almost never get to ALL THE COPIES without killing the opponent.

    This is a color pie showcase. You're combining two Red things - Heat Shimmer and creature burn - to get a third Red effect, Threaten. It feels a bit unfair to directly kill the Threatened creature, but the burn aspect restricts what's it can Threaten to what it can actually threaten. I suspect the numbers would be tweaked in play testing, but it otherwise looks like a rare WotC would print.

    Keep ramping! Give me ALL the copies! Even when I can cast any two spells in my deck combined, I MUST have more.

    On a basic level(/land), this is surprisingly fair. It pays off in two turns, or three on a tapland. But to really exploit it, you need to specifically build your deck to take advantage of having 7+ lands without falling apart if it doesn't draw the Font. That means either {X} costs, a way to sacrifice lands for value, or some mana-bound loop.

    Or you could choose to use a land that converts itself into value. If you stick it on a Treetop Village, it builds up to large trampling attacks. If you stick it on a Glimmerpost and survive for a turn or two, some decks just fold in the face of accelerating life gain.

    Nice design. Don't make it share Standard with strong man-lands.

    I'm the wrong judge to submit this design for. I strongly dislike the more complex post-Theros planeswalkers. This design takes an already complex planeswalker on the field and adds more abilities to it. A couple of those abilities are themselves exceptional - the copying is an imperfect copy and the second Sakashima loyalty ability has a lingering invisible effect. That's way more stuff than I want to keep in my head for one Planeswalker.

    The first thing to synthesize, if necessary, is more life gain. The second, if possible, is another Synthesizer. The third, obviously, is some mana rocks.

    This card is an archetype definer. The slow engine lets its owner play an entirely different sort of game from conventional Magic, with an open "hand" of artifacts and enchantments on the table powered by lands and life gain from his actual hand. The life gain does double duty as a mana analogue and as a means to buy time to run the engine. Or it could be a Prison piece, churning out Spheres of Resistance and Ghostly Prisons while its own copying remains unimpeded.

    Yep, designed pretty much exclusively for Commander and would probably consider making it Jeskai to make it more viable as a commander. The only thing I'd add is that Myriad can mitigate the squishiness for attacking a bit - attacking someone who doesn't have creatures that can deal with it is when it works best anyway and if there aren't any scary etb effects it can copy, it might not be in your best interest to block and kill it if you can if it's going to keep swinging stronger creatures at opponents more.

    Thanks for the win!

    For the next challenge, create a card that could be in an underwater set. The mechanics can be anything you want, but the flavor should fit a plane where everything, or almost everything, is underwater.

    Destroy target creature. It canít be regenerated. Its controller reveals cards from the top of their library until they reveal a creature card with greater power than the destroyed creature. The player puts that card onto the battlefield, then shuffles all other cards revealed this way into their library. If that creature was a Kraken, Leviathan, Octopus, Serpent or Fish creature card then it gains haste until end of turn.

    I admit I have an ulterior motive. Having the rare lands in 3-color combinations means that each will have at least one of Red, Black or Blue on it. I felt it necessary to have a land be in a discard-friendly color if it's going to force you to discard.

    Target creature gets -8/-8 until end of turn. When that creature dies this turn, distribute X +1/+1 counters among any number of creatures you control, where X is its base toughness.
    Those that don't survive the crushing depths serve as bounty for those that do.

    This should kill most Serpent, Leviathan, Kraken, and Octopus creatures.

    I think this wording sets X to the creature's toughness when the spell is cast, rather than when it dies. Is that intended?

    From how I understood "base toughness", any modifiers such as the spell's -8/-8 wouldn't matter at all.

    Correct, and I'd overlooked that it was "base" toughness. But some cards directly change a creature's base toughness.

    6 mana for sorcery speed removal is pretty rough, even if it is exile, plus the color intensiveness seems unnecessary. The upside is also very minor, unless this an enchantment-focused set. The flavor is nice, though.

    A classic trope! The card seems fun, especially in something like Commander. I donít think this would do as well in a competitive format, even Limited, since an opponent would always get a stronger creature out of it. If anything, it might be used in a deck like the Lukka deck that cheated Agent of Treachery into play.

    Deal 2 Damage to any target, gain RRRR.
    In the deepest recesses-the heat and light is to be as feared as the dark and cold.
    Rituals are already pretty strong in the right decks, like Storm, so making one that does damage on top of the mana production seems a bit dangerous. This one also adds more mana than some of the rituals currently run in Storm. Maybe the sorcery speed would hold it back, but this seems like a card that just wouldnít be used fairly. The flavor is on point though.

    A very clean, resonant card with good flavor. The only thing is that I donít think this needs to be blue, since white is equally the color of ďflying-mattersĒ. Maybe this card could help make an Azorius Fliers deck viable.

    When this land enters the battlefield, exile a card from your hand until you have a red card, a green card and a white card in your graveyard. (The card isn't exiled if that's already the case.)
    T: Add W, G or R
    I think thereís an error here: you exile the card from your hand, but then it checks your graveyard for the right colors. This could end up locking up the game since youíll exile your entire hand but still not have the right colors in your graveyard, but itíll keep telling you to exile. Assuming that you meant for it to check your exile zone, an untapped triland is still pretty strong, and you may be able to make up for the card disadvantage with the increased speed. Plus, once youíve got one out, it makes the rest of these basically free to enter untapped.

    Target creature gets -8/-8 until end of turn. When that creature dies this turn, distribute X +1/+1 counters among any number of creatures you control, where X is its base toughness.
    Those that don't survive the crushing depths serve as bounty for those that do.
    This is a very potent removal spell that could single-handedly turn a game around by getting rid of their biggest threat and buffing up your board by a lot. With how many counters can potentially be distributed, I wonder if this would work better a black-green card.

    Choose one or both:
    • Tap target Fish, Octopus, Serpent, Kraken, or Leviathan.
    • Target creature that is not a Fish, Octopus, Serpent, Kraken, or Leviathan gains protection from the color of your choice until end of turn.
    This is a neat and flavorful Gods Willing variant. On the whole, itís probably weaker, but itís still a card that could see play in Standard Aura decks, and I think that Feather in Commander is always looking out for cheap protection cards like this. A solid spell!

    Very simple, but very resonant. I could definitely see a card like this being printed in an underwater set, and it seems like itíd be a strong pick in Limited.


    Glad to see that everyone brought some very flavorful entries to the contest this time around!

    Yay!
    In honor of MH2, make me a card that is a reference to something else in Magic.
    To clarify, this could be a mechanical reference, a la the recent addition to the sword mega-mega-mega-cycle or the new suspend cycle, a flavor reference to an old card or legend, a la the new Dakkon, a flavor reference to a previously uncarded piece of Magic lore, a la Asmoranomardicadaistinaculdacar, a reference to an old meme in the community, a la Jade Avenger, or some other type of reference that I didn't think to list. The power level should be closer to a supplemental set than a premier one (i.e. higher), and while not necessary, explanations are appreciated.
    Stop using good evidence and logic that makes sense to refute points, that's my job
    Lots of people seem to use blue for sarcasm, I decided I should too

    Liliana's Charm BB

    You may put a loyalty counter on a Liliana planeswalker you control.
    Choose one -
    * Create a 2/2 black Zombie creature token. Mill two cards.
    * Put a -1/-1 counter on target creature.
    * Search your library for a Swamp card, reveal it, put it into your hand, then shuffle.

    Quintessent Proposal 2WUR
    Enchantment (M)
    When Quintessent Proposal enters the battlefield each player exiles their library.
    If a player would draw a card instead they choose a player at random and then choose a random card that player owns in exile and places that card in their hard.

    Based on "Proposal"

    Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery you can pay R and discard a card, if you do Venerable Pyromancer deals 3 damage to any target.
    2/2

    Chandra is a Jaya imitator, young pyro is a Chandra imitator so Venerable Pyromancer is a Jaya cosplayer with mechanical similarities to both young pyromancer as well as Jaya Task Mage.

    Whenever a creature with toughness 4 or greater enters the battlefield under your control, draw a card.
    Ward X, where X is the number of creatures you control with toughness 4 or greater (Whenever this creature becomes the target of a spell or ability an opponent controls, counter it unless that player pays X.)
    3/2

    Play with your library revealed.
    You may play two additional lands each turn, and may play lands from your library.
