[Challenge] Come At Me Bro!

84 posts / 0 new
Last post
I've recently come to realize that I've lost motivation to design cards when there isn't any form of pressure or competition (however small) involved.

So, this thread is an invitation for anyone to challenge me to a one-on-one card making duel. Best of one, best of three, whatever, as long as it's within reason (read: I agree to it). If things go smoothly, the whole process should go something like this:

1) Community member A challenges me to a duel.
2) Community member B comes up with a criteria and judges our submissions after a set amount of time.
3) I celebrate my crushing victory over community member A; or whine about how B sucks at judging fantasy fantasy cards.
4) Repeat steps 1-3.

This is mostly just for fun, so feel free to rejoin as many times as you wish. We could even set up duels between other players if this is popular enough.

P.S. Try not to make us design Un-cards, mmkay?

I have a sig because it gives my posts better spacing.
I challenge you to a best of 832.

A card beginning with each letter of the alphabet for each possible color combination (ranging from colorless to five colored).

Each round will also have an additional criteria based on whatever the judge chooses to come up with.

A little bit of courage is the real magic.

I think it'd be fairer if the judge came up with his own criteria.

I don't think you can stipulate the duel's requirements, silly.

I'll judge one duel with this criteria:

Create a non-un card that interacts well with Now I know my ABC's

You have until 18 hours from this post, go!

Silly, this will be a single duel, no questions asked.

~ doesn't untap during your untap step.
Sacrifice three permanents: Untap ~ and remove it from combat. Any player may activate this ability.
10/10


It only lacks the letters J, K, M, Q, U, V, and W. I think that's pretty good synergy.

@Imidazoline: I accept your challenge, good sir.

ROUND 1 OF 832:

Create a non-un card that interacts well with Now I know my ABC's

Magox, of Many Faces
Legendary Creature - Human Rogue
:Xm:: Choose a creature card you own from outside the game with converted mana cost X. Magox, of Many Faces becomes a copy of that card and gains this ability.
All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players. Know how to act, and you can go anywhere, do anything.
3/3

Becomes a copy of whatever letters you still need.
A little bit of courage is the real magic.

@Imidazoline: I accept your challenge, good sir.


Criteria.

Make a card with a Characteristic Defining Ability that defines the card's color.

Examples include Ghostfire and Evermind.

You have 24 hours.

I'm gonna give this one to Silly Dragons. The way tutor effects synergize with Now I Know my ABC's seems to be more creative than just having a complex name. Magox of Many Faces is also a very unique clone variant while high power demons with drawbacks are somewhat common.

Congrats Silly!

Evermind no longer has that ability!! Now it has color indicator. The same as all the pacts and probably the kobolds. :P

Shuffle target creature or creature spell into it's owner's library. Reveal cards from the top of your library until you reveal a creature card with converted mana cost equal to the shuffled card's converted mana cost, and put it onto the battlefield. Then shuffle your library.

Make a card involving subgames that doesn't take forever.

:/ Trying to make me spoil my set early.  Fine... :P


Peer into the Multiverse

Sorcery
If this isn't a subgame, each player searches their library for 3 basic lands and 7 other cards and exiles them face down.  Begin a subgame of MAGIC.  Each player puts up to 3 basic lands exiled with Peer into the Multiverse into play in the subgame, then uses the 7 cards exiled with Peer into the Multiverse as their starting hands.
Each player who won the subgame draws 4 cards.
If this is a subgame, draw three cards, then discard two cards.

Okay... you'll have fun with this one:

Make a card that uses both the Innistrad transform and Kamigawa flip abilities (yes... this means your card should have 3-4 different forms).

Oh, I don't like either.  And they functionally do almost the exact same thing, with the only major difference being the question of how atrocious the card looks (Transform sacrificed the ability to have it physically in your deck for the advantage of being able to throw more words on the card).  Combine both on a single card, and... well, who needs pictures?
