@Daij/thehuw: I'm glad you guys like my card. I'm aware that it isn't really an entry (It's kind of only half an entry, haha). But as I said before, I'm just gonna keep it this way for lack of better ideas. Also it's a pleasure to at least make some of the people that vote on this laugh.

@Aarhg: Thanks for your suggestion. I liked it so much, I went with it, tweaking the numbers to gain 5 & lose 15: http://magicseteditor.sourceforge.net/node/13252#comment-290476. I even gave you design credit.

@ﻼ (Arabic "no"): Your fltxt is missing a couple of words "...it’s healthier just to deal with a problem..."

@Ziolang: See, this is something that was already shot down in the GDS 2 (search for Flint Mine). MaRo said all that needs to be said about it.

@Pixi: Your card, as submitted, is apt to cause a bit of confusion as to whether or not one draws cards if it's cast outside of your turn. A better template would be: "If it's your turn, end the turn, then draw four cards at the beginning of your next turn's upkeep. Otherwise, you win the game."

@sdfkjgh: Maybe. but if its not cast on your turn you win then you don't draw cards. if it is on your turn the game moves on and you draw cards next turn. I dont know. Winking smiley

@ssdfkjgh: Personally I have never found the cons toward Artifice to be enough to prevent its creation. It's a bit more intricate than MtG tends to like in a token generator, but it's not hard to work with.

Exile target planeswalker. If you do, search its owner’s graveyard, hand, and library for any number of planeswalker cards that share a type with that planeswalker and exile them. Then that player shuffles his or her library.
Planeswalkers, too, must fear the Blind Eternities; for even the Spark cannot protect them from all its dangers.

@Pixi: I think your card is too strong. Winning the game for casting a 4 mana sorcery on an opponent's turn seems pretty easy and abusable.
Also since ending the turn exiles Time Waste itself, I think it's second ability wouldn't be executed at all. I think it should be written before the other ability.

@Curse of Swine: I really like that card. Combines well with scry effects.

OK. Here's the render for my entry:

It might look a little cramped, should I remove the flavor text?
Also, I wasn't able to find the art I wanted, but this kind of visualizes it pretty well: Everything is slowly withering away and there is war and sombody died, idk... Another alternative I had to the render art was a picture of Salem (character), gazing out at the twisted landscape around her headquarters while plotting the destruction of mankind.

@Flo00: I think your are right about it shall exile itself. (I will add that) I can't see why it should not work with the card draw. Arcane Denial is worded like that, but maybe my design ends that efect when it exile itself?

How would you balance it out? or should I try to modify its efect so it not wins the game, on opponents turns?

@Pixi-Rex
Yes, the first ability on your card makes it so that the second will never trigger. Put the draw ability first and the problem will be solved.
And also, being able to win the game by only playing a sorcery on flash is way too easy. There are multiple cards that gives you this opportunity, as well as to get to draw four cards for cmc 4 is also a little too strong, while three has a minimum cost of 2 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlue mana symbol! (Exept from Ancestral Recall wich is vintage and restricted).
To balance it, maybe reduce the card draw to three and probably cut or add more conditions to the "wint-the-game" part.

What do you guys think? Is the textbox on my render to cramped? Should I drop the flavor text?

@Mahx Michael: Tough to say, actually. Technically, eight lines are still ok - but it might still look better without the flavor text nethertheless. This probably boils down to personal preference imho.

@Mahx Michael: I think the render looks fine, not hard to read. The flavor text adds something to the card, and the art is a good fit.

@Fermat
I'm not sure losing a walker is viable for reducing Utter End's mana cost by 1 and making it hit lands. That's basically suggesting, to me, a walker is worth about 3 mana symbol-- which some are I s'pose. Tibalt can be cannon fodder here, but none-the-less, I feel like this card is kind of pointless and wouldn't do much anything in just about any format-- even super friends would feel kinda iffy about it, I think.

That's just my opinion, maybe I'm missin' something, I like the idea but I think it's just kind of... underwhelming? Just some friendly advice-- sorry if it sounded rude at all.

@Gurfle: *shrugs* I guess went too much with flavor with that one. I imagine one of the Gatewatch will die taking out a big bad somewhere down the line. If I can think of something better later on, I'll change it. Thanks for the feedback. And no worries. You weren't rude at all.

@Fermat: That's an awesome new type of mana - really like it! Nice way of doing rather subtile "signature spells".

@Pixi-Rex: I still don't think a spell can continue resolving after it exiled itself. But it's just a feeling.
EDIT: Forget what I just wrote. Part the Waterveil does the same thing and it works perfectly. X)
