Challenge wrote:
I would like to play a little word game with you. Magic has many words and terms to explain what the cards does. Some are simple, others are quite difficult to understand. I would like to have you make a card that as a minimum INCLUDES three of the following words:

Otherwise, Instead, Except, Equal, Activate, Source, Choose, Becomes, Among and Addition/Additional.

I have chosen words that should provide a great potential for designing spaces, but also allow you to think and put words together. If you can fill more than three words in that's super. Hope this is not too difficult and too easy. Good luck.

PS: Write the words you choose to use.

Please remember: You're not allowed to vote for yourselves. For further information please look at the CotW Rules.

Note: I didn't copy the chosen words here to save some time. Checked all entries to fit the challenge, though.

Please message me immediately if you notice a discrepancy in your entry or another's entry.

As Photobucket wants me to pay 400$/year to link to my images, I'll relocate all renders.

I don't get why Gaea's Awakening can't use "for each Forest you control" in both of its modes?
Although I doubt there's precedent for that, I think that Grow in Battle could probably use the term "bolstered creature" rather than "chosen creature".

My first draft indeed used the term "bolstered", but I decided to drop it exactly because there was no precedent so far Winking smiley If I were to include it into a complete set, I'd use it while adding a few other cards using it as well.
