Yes, I know it's March. Bear with me.

So here's how this is going to go down, if people are interested.

1) People sign up in this thread.
2) After a while, I close signups and secretly assign each user who signed up another user. (I'll be using random.org for this.)
3) Each designer makes a gift card (or several, if the mood strikes them) for the user they've been given. This can be a card featuring a mechanic that user has come up with, referencing a set, character or other lore thing the user has, a card that represents something they like in MTG game mechanics/flavour, etc.

Who would be interested? I think I'll be conservative and put the max amount of people at 8 for now, but I can fit in more if there's more turnout.

@Neottolemo: I was actually happy to receive you, because I know you love alternate mana symbols (Speedmorph, anyone?) and I've had this idea brewing around for awhile. So I present to you -- The Perfect Storm. I hope you like it!

@jacqui: thanks a lot for that, that's a beautiful cycle, and the flavor texts prove you read the story pieces which warms my heart A happy smile

@Zephyr: I already had an idea of what to design for each possible candidate, and for you I was planning on doing an Animara card, but I thought that'd be a bit too obvious/cliché, so instead I chose to make a tribute to your experiments with design space and original ideas for costing cards, hope you enjoy:

For Zephyr

NOTES: A tribute to the yellow mana on Ziltrem plus your considerations on card positioning in Delkor. Chose Earth Mana for MTG Extra because I thought of it as digging through the earth for resources. For any mods out there: the artist credit wasn't visible in the usual place so it is in the image instead.


NOTES: A tribute to Averlos, going for color-bends and white vampires.


NOTES: A tribute to Delkor's overlay, plus a little bonus because even though I didn't give you an Animara, I'm still giving you something that encourages you to play her ;)

Thank you so much for those cards, mario! Big smile

Comments on The Perfect Storm
Aether Whirlwind: Awesome, but White mana symbol probably shouldn't get to exile your opponents' lands since that's basically land destruction.

Spilling Sand: Beautiful card! Big smile

Fragile Balance: I like the flavour but it might be able to be pushed a little more.

Nomadic Pyroseeker: I really like this! Is it intentional that it has no species type?

Great Grove Guardian is lovely.

Eye of the Storm might afford to be able to tap for Colorless mana symbol on its own? I mean, that'd make it easier to use while deckbuilding, at least.

Arachnus Prime and the rest of the purple cards: This seems like an interesting interpretation of purple mana. Since it says 'you may', does that mean that there are other ways to produce purple mana that can be spent on this? Is the fact that you can only turn cards with a mana ability face down to pay for these a power level concern, a flavour thing ("look, my lands work from exile!"), both, or something else entirely?
Abomination seems like it overlaps with Horror a bit, but I guess that making it a new creature type might be okay, since Eldrazi and Nightstalker did it; Arachnus Prime should probably be a Spider as well, going by the name.
Sorry, but I'm not really a fan of shroud. It is 'weird', but there are probably other ways to represent otherwordly beings.

Thank you again for having done this for me! Big smile

My Secret Santa target was Sylphiod, and I decided to see if I could condense the Essence of Sylph as hard as possible into one card. This one has it all: harpies, flying "tribal", snow, big Commander-oriented gold rare status, skimpy harpy clothing... I hope you enjoy it!

@Neo: No problem! This idea came up before the SS was assigned, and it just seemed perfectly appropriate. A happy smile

Responses
I'm responding to your critiques since I may end up using these cards in a set down the line!

- Aether Whirlwind: this was always supposed to say nonland permanent for your opponents. Good catch. A happy smile
- Fragile Balance: I was trying to hard to make this not a 1-mana "target player sacrifices a creature". I think it will work fine at 4 mana symbolBlack mana symbol, but I don't want to push it any further as an instant.
- Nomadic Pyroseeker: Absolutely intentional. A happy smile
- Eye of the Storm: Should totally be able to tap for colorless. Oversight on my part!
- Purple mana: I'm leaving it open for possible purple mana sources down the line, but the intentions for this set was just flipping a mana source in exile. The ability is entirely flavor, in that these guys use mana WAY differently than what we've come to expect (i.e. from exile).
- Abomination: Is close to Horror et al, but I really wanted something completely new for creatures that no one would quite understand.
- Arachnus Prime: It irks me that Arachnid isn't the creature type, and they have Spider and Scorpion instead. Arachnus is neither of those, and as such doesn't have the creature type -- I may just move towards Arachnid myself though as a Mario-world change, in which case this card would gain that type.
- Shroud: I had an idea to replace it. How does this look:

Resolute (This creature can't be dealt damage or destroyed by spells and abilities that don't target it.)

I've always wanted to make a keyword like this work, and this seems like an interesting place to try it!

No problem for having done it, once again. I'm glad you liked them! A happy smile

Aight @Yoshi, I got some special cards for you!

Yoshi
I was inspired by your username (and my video game expertise) to create a character based off of Yoshi the Dinosaur (turns out its species is a Yoshi). From there, I knew there needed to be another character along with him, because what is Yoshi but a mount for Mario?

Yoshi, Loyal Saurus 2 mana symbolRed mana symbolBlue mana symbolGreen mana symbol
Legendary Creature - Dinosaur Rare
Whenever Yoshi deals combat damage to a creature, tap it. It doesn’t untap during its controller’s next untap step. //technical term for this is now "exert that creature," isn't it?
Tap another legendary creature you control: Untap target creature. It blocks Yoshi this turn if able.
Partner
2/7

Generic Hero Character 3 mana symbolRed mana symbolBlue mana symbolGreen mana symbol
Legendary Creature - Human Rare
Whenever Generic Hero Character becomes tapped, choose one —
• Target creature gets +2/-2 or -2/+2 until end of turn.
• Target creature gains menace until end of turn.
Partner
5/4

I then decided that no character is a hero without enemies to defeat.

Generic Enemy Minion 2 mana symbolGreen mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Creature - Horror Uncommon
Reincarnate 2 (When this creature dies, exile it with 2 time counters on it. At the beginning of your upkeep, remove a time counter form this card. You may cast this card from exile as long as it has a time counter on it.)
When Generic Enemy Minion enters the battlefield, if it was cast from exile, create a token that’s a copy of it.
3/4

Generic Antagonist 1 mana symbolGreen mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Creature - Horror Mythic Rare
Flash
Whenever Generic Antogonist enters the battlefield or attacks, creatures you control gain deathtouch until end of turn.
4/3

What I ended up with, it seems, is the beginnings of a duel deck, possibly centered around partnered commanders. Hope you like!

@ Kora - Interesting designs - I actually don't seem to have made a ruling for counters + Overlay zone, though I swore I did back then. I guess given the nature of the zone and tokens not being exiled, they'd stay, haha, so that card could work.

For marioware2, I wanted to do a tribute to both your Old World Order and your New World Order.

Spoiler:
First off, three false Gods, trapped on Ichatca!

Ancestry: Each <color> card in your graveyard counts towards your ancestry in <color>.

Tamiyo, the Presiding Moon 3 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlue mana symbol
Legendary Creature - God Mythic Rare
Cast Tamiyo, the Presiding Moon only if your ancestry in blue is five or greater.
When you cast Tamiyo, the Presiding Moon, tap all creatures target player controls. Those creatures don't untap during that player's next untap step.
When Tamiyo, the Presiding Moon dies, you may pay 3 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlue mana symbol and exile it from your graveyard. If you do, draw a card for each tapped creature target player controls.
4/4

Vaeco, the Horizon's Chaos 3 mana symbolRed mana symbolRed mana symbol
Legendary Creature - God Mythic Rare
Cast Vaeco, the Horizon's Chaos only if your ancestry in red is five or greater.
When Vaeco, the Horizon's Chaos attacks, gain control of target permanent until end of turn. Untap that permanent. It gains haste until end of turn.
When Vaeco, the Horizon's Chaos dies, you may pay 6 mana symbolRed mana symbolRed mana symbol and exile it from your graveyard. If you do, each player then gains control of each nonland permanent the player to the left of them controls.
3/3

Kaj, the Ancient Summer 2 mana symbolWhite mana symbolGreen mana symbol
Legendary Creature - God Mythic Rare
Cast Kaj, the Ancient Summer only if your ancestry in white or your ancestry in green is five or greater.
At the beginning of your upkeep, gain life equal to the greatest toughness among creatures you control.
When Kaj, the Ancient Summer dies, you may pay 3 mana symbolWhite mana symbolGreen mana symbol and exile it from your graveyard. If you do, you get an emblem with “Creatures you control get +5/+5 and have lifelink.”
4/4

And now, a Nangjiao Mythic reimagined in Pheris style:

Artifact Mana for MTG Extra = Mana produced by an artifact.

Morose Cogworker 1 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Artifact Creature - Human Mythic Rare
Whenever you cast an artifact spell, add Colorless mana symbol to your mana pool. Spend this mana only to activate abilities of artifacts.
Whenever an artifact creature enters the battlefield, you may pay 1 mana symbolArtifact Mana for MTG ExtraArtifact Mana for MTG Extra if you do, each opponent loses life equal to that creature's power.

Gor's Research Notes 3 mana symbol
Legendary Artifact Rare
Whenever you cast an artifact spell, put a research counter on ~.
At the beginning of your upkeep if there are 2 or more research counters on ~, create a 1/1 Servo artifact creature token. Then if there are 5 or more research tokens on ~, draw a card. Then if there are 10 or more research tokens on ~, you may put an artifact card from your hand or graveyard onto the battlefield. Then if there are 20 or more research counters on ~, you win the game.

Closed! You'll be informed of your targets soon.

EDIT: I'm posting them here this time to avoid DM clutter on my end. I'm keeping mine a secret, but read your spoilerbox for yours - and don't peek in the others, it'll ruin the fun.

Well, ok.. I literally just wanted to shut off my computer and catch some sleep, when I noticed your post. "Well.." I thought "..guess I'll take a quick look at whom I'll be designing a card for, so I can think about one tomorrow." Turns out however, I had an instant inspiration about what I wanted to do - so here you go already:

Hope you like it, fluffy! Big smile
