Last minute entry, had this lying around and I believe it fits the challenge. If not, just ignore me Daij, but if it does, bonus points!

Nature and stuff

For glory!

I've been a little busy this week, but here's my entry.

You gotta be smart about how you play your lands, if you want the most out of this guy.

Thornwood Musa 1 mana symbolGreen mana symbol
Creature - Plant Rare
As additional cost to cast Thornwood Musa, sacrifice a creature named Maro.
When you cast Thornwood Musa, creatures you control gain trample and get +X/+X, where X is the number of cards in your hand.
At the beginning of your upkeep, you lose the game.

@guhkun: Why would I ever sacrifice a specific creature that hasn't been printed since Ninth Edition for six mana invested over two turns when I could just skip Maro and cast Overrun on turn five, for one mana and one card less overall? Even if you do squeeze an extra bit of pump out of the Musa, there's the small matter of you losing the game next turn to balance that...

Its supposed to be a satirical card. Musa is the scientific name of the plant that give us the ultimate, horrifying Banana. Which is Mark Rosewater's most hated fruit and which will kill you after you eat it. lol

So in other words, it's an un-card?

Laugh Out Loud You just double-posted

Seems daij_djan has a hard time deciding on the next contest, since it isn't up yet.

@Mahx Michael, countries other than Canada have holidays on this particular day, I don't now if this is the case for daij_djan but it may be worth considering.

New card game development, resource centre.
Put urls between a [img=375x523] and a [/img] to make them normal sized renders.

Sure. I didn't mean it as an offense. Sorry A sad 'frowny'
I'm not from Canada either, but I had no idea some might have holiday now. But I do know Daij_Djan has a lot to do outside of MSE, so I do understand he has a lot to take care of (or not to take care of if it is his holiday).

Yeah, sorry for the delay guys. Actually it was a national holiday last week for me, today I had to work. Which indeed was the issue as my work shift was changed at short notice, so I wasn't able to take care of stuff before heading of to work. Have to admit Mahx Michael wasn't completely wrong - as you'll see in a few minutes Winking smiley
