YMtC Idol 8: Audition Round

Welcome to the eighth installment of You Make the Card Idol!

YMtC Idol is the contest we wait for every year, anticipation cemented into our nerves. Its former host, the illustrious tyranno6, has left for greener shores; thus we wait no longer. I am your new host and the crowning contest of our forums is about to begin!

The names of former idols are etched into our board history, not just by their performances in this contest, but by their achievements in the YMtC community. The first Idol was Ephemeron, followed by Noddegamra, Rumor, Dream Spinner, zammm, Q_is_564453, and your recent champion, ObsidianDice.

You Make the Card Idol is an elimination contest. The winner of the contest receives a handsome "YMtC Idol" custom title — but don't think this contest only rewards the victors. Each contestant who participates in the contest inevitably grows stronger in their card creating abilities, and both the challenging criteria and the critical judging are there to help you with that.

Last year saw 61 hopefuls step up to the challenge! To become the next Idol, you first need to audition in this thread. After that, you will face ten rounds of elimination. Each round, contestants will be eliminated by the judges until only twelve remain. After those rounds, the judges will nominate one person each, and the public will vote on who they think should be eliminated.

Your judges for this event will be announced in the coming week. Until then, if you wish to audition for the contest, post a card in this thread which fulfils the following criteria.



Audition Criteria:
The history of the zones in Magic is one of necessity. The original zones weren't conceptualized as well as they are now; you simply put your permanents in play (now the battlefield) and kept your deck in your library. Ante wasn't thought of as an interactive part of the game for most, and the batch (now the stack) was more of a process than a place for your cards to reside. And when a card was removed-from-the-game (to a place we now call exile), it stayed there! As Magic evolved, so too did the function of zones. What once were places for cards to just be are now hotbeds for obscure abilities to exist. Since Magic's start, zones have not only been added to the game (as if we could forget phasing even if we tried), but have been used as central themes, and in the case of the graveyard, have even garnered their own sets!

Create a permanent card with an ability that functions from a zone other than the battlefield.



You have one week to post your audition.

Good luck!



(Note: To those contestants returning from previous years, all aspects of the contest are being scrutinized and some factors about this tradition are subject to change, such as the number of eliminations per round. If a change is made, a notification post will be made and the information will be edited into this post.)
When I looked at that 8, my first thought was "Spirograph! Spirograph! Beautiful designs..."

...I haven't thought about Spirograph in years. And now I'll be spouting that tune for days. I hope you're proud of yourself.

Come join me at No Goblins Allowed


Because frankly, being here depresses me these days.

Caracchaio, Banished Hero --
Legendary Creature - Human Soldier
First strike, vigilance
: Shuffle Caracchaio into its owner's library.  Until a permanent named Caracchaio, Banished Hero enters play, creatures controlled by its owner get +1/+1.  Any opponent may play this ability.
In the wind-smeared cloud and wave-tossed foam, the people of Latalla see Caracchaio's white banner everywhere.
2/4

My eagerness to finally have the opportunity to jump into this competition is probably going to bite me in the butt - but I just can't wait!
Edit: Man, I just looked at my audition card for last years - so that's why I didn't make it...


Martyr of Nhyll |
Legendary Creature - Human Cleric
If Martyr of Nhyll is in your graveyard, creatures your opponents control get -1/-1.
If more than one copy of Martyr of Nhyll is in a graveyard, exile all copies of it from all graveyards.
He went through life a simple soul. It his said that on his death, the heavens revolted and cursed those who would harm such as he.
2/2

I think I'll post a card.

HOLY TOLEDO!

I'm auditioning as well, although I truly believe my card making skillzors have take a turn for the worse as of late. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I don't make a lot of cards anymore?

Good luck to everyone and "Good on ya!" to Rush for hosting.

Almost tempted to have Elevate AND Crouch put in an entry.

My sentiments exactly. When was the last time there was a serious contest on these boards?

Regardless, I'm in. Gimme a coupla minutes/a day or two to figure this one out.

When you have eight or more solace counters, if Forgotten Martyr is in your graveyard, you win the game. 

Spell Ward
Enchantment
Flash
: Counter target spell or ability that targets a spell, card or permanent that shares a zone with Spell Ward.  If Spell Ward is on the battlefield, sacrifice it.  If Spell Ward is in the graveyard, exile it.  You may play this ability from all public zones. (The public zones are battlefield, graveyard, stack, and exile.)
The delicate Agreans fear might over persistance.

So I took a while making this card.  The idea I had was to transcend zones.  The way this card works is that is starts out in your hand zone, while you can not activate the ability from your hand, you can cast it, which puts it onto the stack.  From there you CAN activate the ability and more than once if you're mana rich.  If you do, the bonus is that the card will still enter the battlefield.  To do that this will basically be a counterspell, so the extra mana is paid for the residual effect.  Once it hits the battlefield, you get another shot to use it at every blue players dream counter cost (Counterspell).  Once that shot is used up it lingers in the graveyard for more schenanigans before finally heading to exile (still not useless there).

I know this type of repeatable counterspell seems a bit powerful, but after the first counter, this becomes a known entity and easier to play around.  Another bonus about this card is that with flash, this can fit into a draw go control deck perfectly and you don't HAVE to use it as a surprise counter, but can use it as a seal instead.

Impossible to catch, they are said to nest on the tips of tongues, and rumored to prey on the feeble minded.

Really annoying to cost the ability, I knew I wanted a flyer, but I hate 1/1 and 1/2 flyers (personally), and 2/1 is too big for 1U. That left me with 2U, but that is a little pricey for a 2/1 in my opinion, even an essentially uncounterable one, so I added shroud as a nice flavorful touch.

: Put another creature in exile onto the battlefield under your control.  Play this ability only if ~ is in exile.
5/5

I'll probably edit it around 631 times.  The Ethereal ability is from a set I stopped making.  There were a faction of WBu Spirits that had a lot of shenanigans with Exile.  Also note that Exile is the same zone for both players, so this can steal your opponent's dudes too.
REMEMBER FLUFFY, mercilessly slain by the bastard Useless Mancer
Fluffy, the cute and cuddly baloth beatstick of marshmellowy fluffyness and lolz, om-nom-noming Keeper's wicked soul; its insane, deadly amount of cuteness rips the fabric of reality to shreds, its pink, soft, round teeth dripping with honey, every breath spreading the repugnant smell of fresh flowers, this horrifying creature of destruction devastates Keeper by spreading its deadly, all-powerful fluff over the countryside, laying waste to dragon and furry bunny alike. It comes howling out of the east, an endless rattling and gnashing of teeth, a twisted grinding pull on the very fabric of reality threatening to consume body and mind alike in an endless glimmering pink torrent. Nothing is more terrible than the sun glittering on its teeth, save perhaps the light glancing off the oily tones of the sequins that cover its hotpants. Of course, there was that child who tried to eat Fluffy, mistaking him for a giant, walking piece of cotton candy. That child... is now the almighty leader of Fluffy, controlling his every move, sending him to devour the people that cross his path. And Keeper. Because we said so. Nothing can stop Fluffy's march to victory, spreading the sweet smell of strawberries where ever it lays its mighty paw. Followed by many jolly fairies singing joyful songs about Fluffy's cuddlyness, the baloth wanders the mountains of Zendikarland on a quest to share the love with Keeper, tough love that is...
Fluffy, we'll miss you friend. We'll miss you...

Distorted Path
Enchantment
: Exile ~.
At the beginning of your upkeep as long as ~ is exiled you may pay . If you do exile target permanent and return ~ to the battlefield under your control.
A guiding light coaxes anyone it can down the path. It returns for another victim only after the first is lost.

There has never been anything here...now there is.
Timeshredder
Creature - Wizard Mutant
Timeshredder is blue
Suspend 5 -
As long as Timeshredder is exiled with a time counter on it, whenever a player casts a spell from somewhere other than the exiled zone exile that spell, put 1 time counter on it and it gains suspend.
"Time is just another source of magic, waiting to be unleashed by the right hands"
1/1

This guy would suck to play against..... 

Edit: Fixed to meet criteria better, do I need to say "whenever a player casts a spell from somewhere other than the exile zone" or something to keep this from going infinite with itself?

Keep in mind that there are plenty of cards that let you reveal your own hand.

Ul Nasak, the Teeth of Night  
Legendary Creature - Vampire Assassin

Emerge . (Declare Ul Nasak, the Teeth of Night and pay its emerge cost. Search your library for a copy of Ul Nasak, the Teeth of Night and play it. If there is no copy of Ul Nasak, the Teeth of Night when you search for it, you lose the game. Play this ability only as a sorcery.)

Other Vampire creatures in your library have "Emerge ".

The night rises. His enemies fall.
