@Aarhg and thehuw: I don't get the joke. What is Vectron. Google can't help

I have a feeling its parameter for something, so if Vectron intensifies, mening that the excitement of getting a lengendary become non existing because you would gat a legned in every booster.
I don't know. But I may need a T-shirt with "I don't agree with Vectron" With a thumb down.

@Pixi-Rex: For the legendary uncommon contest a few weeks back, I entered Vectron, God of Stuff, a silver-bordered God who was meant to express my frustration with not being able to think of a good entry that week. Then it won.

@sdfkjgh: Fine enough land, I suppose, but it really doesn't need the weird blendy frame. Also not 100% sure that it's rare-worthy?

@sdfkjgh: I like the design, but I can't imagine I'd ever actually put it in a deck — I'd rather have untapped basics or duals that provide net mana gain.

@huw, @yucca: you did notice that it's a Forest, right? It's a land that taps for one of three different colors, and even though it enters tapped, it can still filter for one Red mana symbol or one White mana symbol the turn it enters, and every turn after that. Plus, you could also look at it as one of a 30-card cycle: for each color, there are 6 two-color pairs that don't use that color. Who knew that such a terrible 5-card cycle could lead to such a rich bevy of actually good trilands?

@one1eye1: "Whenever Labyrinth Minotaur blocks a creature, exert that creature" is more correct wording, I think. Also, contest rules stipulate that you should change the name. And, since this is functionally damn near identical to the original, can it really count as an entry?

Contest rules also say you can't use non-evergreens.

Remind yourself that overconfidence is a slow and insidious killer.

The minotaur is a clever use of exert IMHO (to the point that I'd keep it for future reference). Shame that it doesn't fit in the rules of this CoTW.

And here's the next challenge!
