Welcome! do you like making cards? do you enjoy crafting elegant flavors and innovative mechanics? are you BelangiaJo? if you answered yes to all three, THIS IS THE CONTEST FOR YOU! step right up, take a shot, and you could become YMTC'S NEXT TOP BELANGIAJO! what are you waiting for? time is limited, so get your auditions in quickly for this, the first annual YMtC's Next Top BelangiaJo!

throughout YMtC history, BelangiaJos of all sorts have held a special place, hosting contests and designing cards while being BelangiaJo, a feat none have been able to match. from his current cudgel troll avatar to ones he totally had but I don't remember, the sight of a BelangiaJo was enough to make lesser YMtCers run in fear. can you capture this truly BelangiaJo essence? can you step up to the plate? can you become YMtC's Next Top BelangiaJo? only time, and this contest, will tell.

so what criterion could so perfectly distill the essence of BelangiaJo? how could one possibly capture all that it takes to be BelangiaJo in one simple, beautiful challenge? well, there's certainly ways to do it, but instead I just stole the criteria he posted for his own contest! because that seems easier to me.

criteria
CRITERION:
I have been relatively nostalgic lately, so let's revisit Ravnica again.
Choose one of the following guild combinations:


  • Gruul and Izzet

  • Golgari and Orzhov

  • Azorius and Boros

  • Selesyna and Simic

  • Rakdos and Dimir


Using the color that the two guilds in the combination share, make a card that fits the ideologies of both guilds. (You must use the color the guilds share. You may also use any combination of the other two colors of the guilds, but do not use colors not represented in the chosen combination.)


NOTE: contest only available to users who are BelangiaJo.

120.6. Some effects replace card draws.

Contest-Specific Redeemable Prizes: DaytimeLantern - +5 points on any score-based contest. Redeemable once. If contest is multiple rounds, only redeemable in a single round.
I still don't understand why the options aren't set so that each pair has a single, different shared color.

I agree with you.

but I didn't write the criteria.

I suppose that's just part of being YMtC's Next Top BelangiaJo.

It was the result of a mental misstep followed by the inability to change the criterion due to three submissions in progress.

In fact, being who I am, here is the updated criteria* for me to complete:

The foundations of creeds and compost are each borne on the bones of the dead.
 
I was originally going to make a new account called 'TotallyNotBelangiaJo', with an avatar identical to BelangiaJos except sporting a monacle and mostache and comment in this thread, but it turned out to be too much work. So instead, just pretend I did so. And find it hillarious.

Also, yay for a chance at being the judge who kicked me out of the first round of the Brain! No, I am not bitter, why do you ask?

Stop, Saproling Time
Instant
Put 5 1/1 Saproling tokens onto the battlefield. Then, for each creature you control, tap another target creature.
Forecast - Put a 1/1 green Saproling token onto the battlefield.
I'm actually an MUP of BelangiaJo. So are Razorborne, Elevate, Crouch and 1darkangel6.

Cataclysm Seeker
Creature - Wizard Rebel
~ is unblockable
When ~ deals damage to a player look at the top 3 cards of your library, reveal an instant or sorcery from among them and put it in your hand, put the rest on the top of your library in any order.
The Izzet had no idea there was a trator in their ranks, preparing for the disaster of the century.
2/4

Show
Dimir wants nothing more then to decieve and never bring up suspision. So i made an unblockable rebel trator in the izzet guild. The izzet are specifically toned to reserch against natural disasters (i took as instants ans sorcerys) so since dimir is so schemeing their train of thought is to uitilize this knowlege to create the disasters first off throwing off the izzet records and second uprise during the times of chaos and destruction leaving them in power and those that don't surrender to them under siege by the elements.

Each player discards his or her hand. He or she then searches his or her library for up to seven cards, shuffles his or her library, and puts those cards on top of it in any order.

Look at the top card of your library. You may shuffle your library.
Reveal the top card of your library. If was paid to cast Gather Intel, target opponent reveals his or her hand and you choose a card with converted mana cost less than the revealed card. That player discards that card. If was paid to cast Gather Intel, Gather Intel deals damage equal to that card's converted mana cost to target creature.

Counter target spell. If it was a creature, ~ deals 2 damage to each creature. If it wasn't, put a 2/2 white knight creature token with first strike onto the battlefield.

banslayeriscute, did you seriously just design a second, equally awesome card instead of just changing your first, incredibly awesome card to be a Human Advisor because he was cooler as a Demon? because if so then you're basically the coolest designer ever, and I don't believe that you actually only joined these boards four months ago.

baneslayeriscute: Sometimes the simple little effects are the best ones. This works, and the only thing that needs to be changes is "in play" to "onto the battlefield." Are you sure you only joined in August? With that, I've come to the fairly conclusive decision that baneslayeriscute made the most interesting card for us to build around. Here it is (with a slight templating fix), so congrats on getting the most important piece of the deck in there!
