YMtC League

Welcome to the YMtC League, a massive contest designed to run until the end of time. It will test your abilities to design cards consistantly and continually. Cards will be made, Judges will be judged, points will be calculated, and winners will be crowned.

The league is essentially an eternal "join as you please" style contest, with rounds about every 48-72 hours. Each round has a 24 hour submission stage, then a 24-48 hour grading stage. If the current judge for the round is absent, then whoever choose the criteria for the current round may choose a new judge, or have that round be scored by community vote. Whoever is declared the winner of that round gets to choose the criteria for the next round, and may pick a judge from a list of volunteers, or choose to have the round's winner decided by vote.

Each player who participated in the round gets points equal to the judge's score, or if it's a voting round, however many votes they got. This does in fact mean that certain judges will give many more points than others. This teaches designers to learn how to create cards for particular people, as every judge appreciates different designs, just as every player does. Points are tracked for a month, and then whoever has the greatest ammount of points is declared the monthly winner. Number of wins and lifetime points will all be tracked, so don't worry about your bragging rights.

So let's get down to business:

Judge: ?


Criteria: find a judge and someone who still cares about this :c

A business card. But really this is just to get a list of judges for people to pick
I'm not at all qualified to judge, but this sounds awesome :O
I'll judge. I have a suggestion about the banner too. I say we make another thread and vote on what the community thinks are some of the best designed cards in Magic's history and put those into a banner.

Do it! As long as they have nice art I can put anything in it
I will gladly volunteer to be an as needed judge.

I'm probably going to be too busy to be a "full-time" judge (I have two contests going), but I can judge every once in a while. Any day really works well for me except for Friday Nights (FNM) usually.

Cheers, vlord.

Heat
Creature - Incarnation
Whenever a creature deals damage to another creature, it deals that much damage to that creature's controller as well.

Flavor text meant to imply a duel between Planeswalkers. Don't know how clear that is. Also, Chaos, you can add me to the judge roster if you want. I promise to catch each and every pun.

In Texas, Summer is drought season, and yet, we still randomly get thunderstorms. I messed with the counter machinations to stop proliferate shennagins.

I believe nothing, so I don't think that has anything to do with it.

@Dr_D: As they say in Texas, if you don't like the weather, just wait 5 minutes. I've never heard anyone say it though >_>

I hear it said on occasion, but it isn't exactly news to anyone... Also in the summer, Thunderstorms are still hot.

Summer means a few things to me...
1) Stay inside to keep cool
2) Stay in the shade to keep cool
3) Go to the beach to keep cool
4) Pray for winter
in short, it means making more work to keep cool.

Enchantment (U)

Triggered abilities of creatures don't trigger unless that creature is untapped.
Each activated ability has "Tap this untapped creature" as part of it's cost.

I'm both chaotic and orderly. I value my own principles, and am willing to go to extreme lengths to enforce them, often trampling on the very same principles in the process. At best, I'm heroic and principled; at worst, I'm hypocritical and disorderly.
I don't really care if you lie about your season, as long as the card is seasony. Now wait for purple shrimp to make a pun card about seasoning.
Song of Storms
Enchantment

Whenever a player taps a land for mana, that player adds one mana to his or her mana pool of any type that land produced.
At the beginning of each upkeep, each player returns a permanent he or she controls to its owner's hand.

Permanents have ': Add to your mana pool.'

when ~ enters the battlefield, exile target creature you control.
at the beginning of your upkeep, put a sleep counter on ~. 
when ~ leaves the battlefield, return the exiled card to the battlefield with x +1/+1 counters on it, where x is the number of sleep counters on ~.

I like the card and the inferred flavour, but that's still the worst name ever.

It's fine, it just seems oppressive and unfun. Just like a real drought.

Interesting, but unwieldy. Good work in the colours and synergises well with traditional cards like Tranquility.
