Welcome to the Card of the Week Contest! To participate in this Contest you'll have to design a card along the contest guidelines and throw it into the arena with other competitors' entries! At the end of each week, a winner will be determined by forum poll. The winner's card will be rendered and featured on the Welcome page, and the winner decides the challenge for the next week's Contest!

Here we go, competitors: our hundred and seventy-second challenge!


The winner of the "Murder is.. fun?" poll was Ziolang with...

As sadly neither our winner nor our runner-up responded in time, I'm using a backup challenge once again...

I wrote:
As you may or may not know, MSE Modern 2.0 has just started – seriously, if you don't know about this, you should totally check it out Winking smiley There's still a few more days till Grand Prix Alexandria begins, so sign up quickly if you want to participate!

At its release, the format currently contains twelve sets worth of cards – and as one might expect, these sets feature quite the high number of custom mechanics , keywords or similar (for a full list check the post below). So with this in mind, your challenge will be as followed: Pick one custom mechanic or similar from the list and design a card featuring it!

Please note: If you designed one of the twelve sets, you're not allowed to use your own set's mechanics! Also I suggest checking out the set the chosen mechanic is featured in to make sure you don't end up redesigning an already existing card Winking smiley

To increase your chances of winning and to also make creating the poll easier on whomever is doing so, please try to use a render.
Additionally, please try to keep your entry edits all in one post - if you need to change it you can put your old entry in a spoiler marked "Old entry" and leave the newest rendition to be seen. Just use the edit button in the bottom/right of your original post.

And now, time to begin the challenge!

Best of luck, competitors!

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

Here is my entry:

Cataclysmic Converter

Text Version:

Cataclysmic Converter 1 mana symbolRed mana symbol
Sorcery Common
Catalyze three times. (The next spell you cast this turn costs 3 mana symbol less to cast.)
The energy of an entire plane, used to fuel everyday convenience.

Design Notes
Inspired by the Microverse Battery from Rick and Morty, where Rick invents a device to contain an entire universe, evolve an intelligent race inside this universe, and give them treadmills so they can make electricity for his car.

The card is a different take on red rituals; instead of adding Red mana symbolRed mana symbolRed mana symbol for 1 mana symbolRed mana symbol, we just make the next spell cost 3 mana symbol less. It's worse than just straight up adding three red mana to your pool, since it's not always giving full effect; not every spell is going to have 3 generic mana in its cost. It does have a lot of value in a dedicated catalyze deck, though, as I know there was a card or two from OPO that cared about number of times you catalyzed in a turn.

Inverness, catalyze is an action word, so this would be "Catalyze three times."

Distill was originally in one of Yoshi's projects and is now also in some Dark Souls set. Idolize is from Nangjiao block. Profit is obviously from my Mercadian Tides block.

Woah, was not expecting that. Lots of awesome takes, especially @Daij: I tried to make a Black mana symbol glory mythic but nothing ever felt right, clearly because it was meant for Setheret. That last line is awesome in its own right but the whole card is great.
Also props to fluffy for doing catalyze right. I should have done more of that but mostly ignored it because catalyze spells were fine in their vacuum.

For this week, I'm going to revisit Sensaos, an Atuum fortress I made for another contest. Mechanically rebuilt but flavor's about the same, temple on the Njel River for the God of Death, though has traded exile shenanigans for punishing inaction.

render
Sensaos on the Njel 4 mana symbolWhite mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Fortress - Atuum
Whenever one or more creatures attack Sensaos on the Njel, you may destroy target untapped creature.
[+1]: Creatures you control get +1/+2 and gain lifelink until your next turn.
[-2]: The controller of target permanent sacrifices it unless they pay life equal to its converted mana cost.
[3]

I really like fortresses but they're pretty hard to gauge without playing them. May end up tweaking it by the end of the week.

This one is silver bordered, but I'm posting it anyway because, well, what do I have to lose? I don't expect it even to be considered, but hey, it technically respects the challenge. In fact, it technically respects it multiple times.

My first idea was this:

Hatsune Miku 2 mana symbolGreen/blue mana symbolGreen/blue mana symbol
Creature — ??? Rare
Shimmer
When ~ attacks, idolize.
Activated abilities of artifacts you control costs 1 mana symbol less.
2/2

Though I'm not sure what creature type to give it, nor if the colors and cost is right. Either way, you're probably tired of my vocaloid stuff already, so here is my entry:

Change list
  • Changed cost from 3 mana symbolBlack mana symbol to 2 mana symbolWhite mana symbolBlack mana symbol.
  • Made the card Legendary
  • Added render
  • Changed back to non-legendary
  • Updated render
Should this be WB? Legendary? Is the cost right with the shimmer part as well?

Black rarely gets first strike, and the only two creatures with "first strike, deathtouch" built in are Glissa, the Traitor and Master of Cruelties, so that matchup is what you should be worrying about.

Shimmer costs ~ +power/+0 and menace, there isn't just a 4/2 menace yet, but Cursed Minotaur and Maulfist Squad gives the starting point between 2 mana symbolBlack mana symbol and 3 mana symbolBlack mana symbol before the other abilities.
(It's worth around that much because it can never block with that power but gains token interaction)

@Inverness - Incredibly cool take on a Ritual.

Yes, that might be a problem... I totally forgot about that! Should I return it to not being legendary, or add "As long as there is exactly two copies of ~ on the battlefield, the legendary rule doesn't apply"?

Ok. Updated entry to non-legendary, still need to update render.

EDIT: Updated Render


@one1eye1
Then you can just sacrifice the shimmer clone and get a permanent copy instead, right?


I'm a little bit uncertain about something. If the copy also has shimmer (since the ability don't specify it doesn't), will the copy copy itself as well?
