Proven Wrong 1 mana symbolBlue mana symbol
Instant Common
Target spell's controller names a card. Reveal your hand. If the named card isn't in your hand, counter target spell.
Investigate.
"I told you so."

Edit: apostrophes, blah

I believe this qualifies. Render to come.
Honestly, I don't know if I should cost this as is or at 1 mana symbolBlue mana symbol. Half the time it doesn't do much, the other half it's better counterspell. Not sure if the guess and check counts as a drawback.

My battle board!
I run a prompt board-- come on over and design some cards, will ya?

@Gurfle: names, not name's.

@Wapulatus: welcome back. That hyphen is really bothering me. Either move it in between Cult and Jester, or lose it altogether.

Idk if this is really "funny"

@jacqui I'd consider that hilarious, so you get a plus from me. Not that it means much, but hey

Beaten Horse 1 mana symbolBlack mana symbolRed mana symbol
Creature - Zombie Horse Uncommon
Unleash (You may have this creature enter the battlefield with a +1/+1 counter on it. It can't block as long as it has a +1/+1 counter on it.)
When ~ enters the battlefield, you may have a horse you control deal damage equal to its power to target creature.
1/1

This would be magics first three drop horse, and finishes of the curve for black red horses.

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

Render is up now. I know the art is already used on Hussar Patrol, so i cropped it a little. It's rather difficult to find magic art that is not already used in magic (of course ), but of course, Lavinia could always have used the Hussar Patrol to send the message either way Winking smiley

@Angelic_Bovines
I saw you had set your label to promo. But arn't all promo-cards considered Mythic Rare? I mean, because of the fact that they are promo.

EDIT: Never mind, I have a promo of Soul of Ravnica and thought it was rare and became mythic since it was promo, but that crappy card is actually mythic either way. I can't believe it


@Gurfle
Actually, I think your card could cost 1 mana symbolBlue mana symbol. For 1 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlue mana symbol, you can counter absolutely anything without any drawback, so why play a card like that? 1 mana symbolBlue mana symbol or Blue mana symbol are a lot more fitting costs in my opinion A happy smile

@Gurfle, since your opponent can guess basic lands I must agree with Mahx Michael, especially with how minor investigating is and that your hand is revealed either way.

A little Dungeons & Dragons pun...

Bog of Holding
Land Rare
~ enters the battlefield tapped.
Hideaway
Tap symbol: Add Blue mana symbol or Black mana symbol to your mana pool.
Blue mana symbolBlack mana symbol, Tap symbol: You may play the exiled card without paying its mana cost if five or more cards were put from an opponent's library into that player's graveyard this turn.

Based on bag of holding. Needless to say, it's something used to put away stuff, hence the associated mechanic.

@sdfkjgh
It looks the same as his set symbol, so I guess he might have used the "set symbol" watermark, that is the last option on the watermarks selection list.

@ Pixi - While I get the joke and I know of MtG Kobolds, this seems more White mana symbol than Red mana symbol.

@Ficus: here's my version of the concept:

NOT AN ENTRY

Kuldotha Clown Car 3 mana symbol
Artifact--Vehicle Mythic Rare
Hexproof, indestructible, haste, deathtouch
Whenever Kuldotha Clown Car deals combat damage to a planeswalker, exile that planeswalker.
Whenever Kuldotha Clown Car deals combat damage to a player, that player loses 1 life for each creature tapped to crew Kuldotha Clown Car this turn.
Crew 10
2/2

This thread is now closed, the poll can be found here.

And here's the next challenge!

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