Our current winner is a violation of the design parameters.

Technically, it's not. The rules say it has to produce only colourless mana, or mana of any colour. It only produces 1 mana symbol, it's the activation ability that requires Blue mana symbol A happy smile

Remind yourself that overconfidence is a slow and insidious killer.

Hm. Yeah I suppose you're right. I just wonder why it's so popular. If you have 11 creatures on board and haven't already won that's pretty odd. It seems like I'd rather just play an Island.

But really my sense of fairness in design is violated. This seems like it needs to be part of a cycle but it isn't. It's just Blue mana symbol.

Also I think each land could really use some tweaking in balance and it was not sufficiently established to the pollers that these cards would be refined and not accepted strictly as-is in the final set. So far example Alex-Ryugami's card could end up looking like the alternative card I put up in the challenge. Similarly Cradle of Primordium could be changed to have a simpler creature with less text and Guitarweeps card could be changed to have a trigger for his creature that is actually feasible. It also locks the slot for the Grootslang which could be an actual legendary creature in the next set.

Yeah I would kind of rather see Grootslang have its own card too.
