YMTC Random Inspiration[Tournament]



It would seem that the forum in bountiful in all of its contests. So I have decided to throw my hat into the ring and come up with a Tournament of my own.


Participation: All are welcomed to join this Tournament at any time as it is a round based Tournament, but I must warn you, being one of the first will surely help you.

Rules: The rules are simple, I will give a source of random inspiration that has to be part of the card you will create in some way. The more your card relates to it the better of a grade you will get at the end of the round.

How to win: The winner will be declared when someone wins 15 rounds. So Those who wish to participate. I hope your willing to put on your A game, otherwise you can be here for a long time.

As said before being one of the first could give you an advantage, but if a true creator comes in late game... they can still steal the tournament.

Grades: Cards will be judge by me, and will be graded on the following Criteria.
2/10 - Random Inspiration: Does your card relate to the Random Inpiration?
2/10 - Playability: Would people want to use your card in a game?
2/10 - Creativeness: How creative is your design, the more original the better.
2/10 - Mechanic: Does your card look like it's mechanic belongs in its color and on the card itself?
1/10 - Flavor Text: Inspire everyone with your witty flavor text to earn yourself an extra point!
1/10 - The Tie breaker: So what happens when we have two people with 9/10 points?! I will determine the victor via a council that won't be participating in this Tournament.

Time Limit: Each round will run for 48hrs to be fair to all time zones. Except on certain holidays. Events during holidays will last 72hrs.


Current Round: Round Three: Time to send them a Message. [48hrs]

I know. I think I might've fucked up my adrenal medulla the other night.

How about this:

An Explosion of Emotion
Sorcery
Each player may feel the emotion of their choice until end of turn. (To feel an emotion, pick a colour. That colour is your emotion. You own all cards of the chosen colour, but if any other player owns a card that you own, it may not be returned to your hand, or shuffled into your library, and if it would be put into a graveyard, it is removed from the game instead.)

And, in logical procession:

Depress
Instant
Target opponent feels Blue. (This effect lasts indefinitely.)

"Stop it. You'll put out my hair."
- Chandra to Jace

I quite like where that is going.

I am going to attempt going even deeper.

Flatter
Instant
Target opponent blushes. (This effect lasts indefinitely.)
"Awwwww, you didn't have to!"

ROUND 2: Good Gosh its a Mystery Box!
Round 1 Grades

2/10 - Random Inspiration: Does your card relate to the Random Inpiration?
2/10 - Playability: Would people want to use your card in a game?
2/10 - Creativeness: How creative is your design, the more original the better.
2/10 - Mechanic: Does your card look like it's mechanic belongs in its color and on the card itself?
1/10 - Flavor Text: Inspire everyone with your witty flavor text to earn yourself an extra point!
1/10 - The Tie breaker: So what happens when we have two people with 9/10 points?! I will determine the victor via a council that won't be participating in this Tournament.


Esterdi- 5 this card extremely strong for it its mana cost, fell a bit on relating to topic though.

Fenix - 9 all around good card.

vlord - 5 lost some point mechanics wise, not alot of red cards that remove damage.

Ulcaster - 8 all around good card. lost 1 point in playability due to triple black cost.

altimis - 6 it was a good card but fell a bit on topic relation, as well as counter is really a red thing.

AzureShade - 6 was a good card, lost some points in playability.

IceMetalPunk - 3 I feel like this card started out as one idea and you tried to change it to something else and didn't finish it.

magicpablo666 - 6 simple/boring/playable card. I picked your first one since you didn't specify which one was your entry.

WINNER: Fenix - Archangel Wrath
..."window.parent.tinyMCE.get('post_content').onLoad.dispatch();" contenteditable="true">AzureShade - 6 was a good card, lost some points in playability.

Can you elaborate on that?  Playability seemed to be the card's strongest thing.

"Boo!"  - Liliana Vess

Lost on points in playabilty due to high mana cost and a great deal of black creatures are less than 5. as well with certain combos this card could
be vicously strong. total breakdown of points lost was, 1 - random inspiration, 1 - playability, 1 - creativeness, 1- tie breaker.

its not so much as this card suffered strongly in any point. just little things here and there. and in certain situations this card could come out strong.
Woo, one first round... FIRST BLOOD

card for round 2 to come soon

updated current round info. Restarting time as info was misleading at the time
Round 2:

Aether Portal |
Artifact
, sacrifice ~: Each player reveals the top five cards of their library, then puts all creature cards revealed this way onto the battlefield, and the rest into their graveyard.
The ground trembles as order is driven back into darkness. Chaos has arrived.
teferi's puzzle box

Darksteel box

Artifact

~ is indestructible.

If Darksteel Box is removed from the battlefield, flip a coin. If heads, put an artifact creature from yoir hand with power 4 or greater onto the battlefield. If tails, put an artifact creature from your hand with power 3 or less onto the battlefield. 

"Don't touch it! Who knows what kind of creatures it could contain." Kemba, Kha Regent 
Dungeon Box
Artifact
Imprint - When ~ enters the battlefield, exile a card from your hand face down imprinted on ~.
When an opponent casts a spell with the same name as the face down card, you may turn that card face up. If you do, counter that spell. (It is still imprinted.)
Opponents cannot cast spells with the same name as the imprinted card if it is face up.

If someone does the bogey-bogey, eats the cards, waits until they come out, look out the approximate order, place replacements in the same order, calls the president to ask him to give him a string of numbers, puts the card in the given order, then pick the cards in the order given by taking the date of birth of his opponent, reversed, and taking only every other number, then a judge can clearly declare that he's random enough.

Planeswalker's Journal

Artifact

(Art depicts a box. A big metal box. Yep... A box.)

Play with the top card of your library revealed.
As long the top card of your library has an activated mana ability, ~ gains that ability.
: Add to your mana pool.

"A planeswalker does not keep a diary of the places they go. They carry the very essence of places they have been away with them."
Pandora's Box --
Artifact (R)

:WM::UM::BM::RM::GM:, :T:, Sacrifice Pandora's Box: Choose one at random - You gain 20 life; or you draw 60 cards; or destroy all creatures; or Pandora's Box deals 20 damage divided as you choose among any number of target creatures; or prevent all combat damage that would be dealt for the rest of the game.

Pandora didn't want to open the box. Nothing says you shouldn't.

Did I lose a point because of flip a coin?

I'mma be pissed... 
nope tiebreaker wasn't used this turn, in fact I've yet to use it all this tournament

I expect tiebreaker will be used in the future as people are creating better and better cards. but It's yet ot be used

If you didn't loss the 1 point in playability I would of had to use tiebreaker, but I will say, it's not choosen by a coin flip, but rather than a group of peers on the forums that I pm. some of which havn't been seen in months
