In the theme of silver bordered cards...

Enchantment Rare
If you are in a stuck elevator, you may cast ~ without paying its mana cost. (You do not have to be in a game to cast this card this way.)

4, T: Draw a card. If you are in a stuck elevator, choose one:
- Wait for people to fix the elevator. (This is the sensible choice.)
- Climb out of the elevator, climb out the window near the elevator and fall 18 feet to the ground. (This is the stupid choice.)
"Hunter Paine Leapt Here" - Sign outside window

This is an in-joke. Some context: My father used to work in a place with this guy, who for the sake of the story we'll call Hunter Paine, because (a) this gives some sense of who he is and (b) he's a pain(e). They were stuck in a freight elevator together, and while my father decided to just wait for people to fix the elevator like a normal person, Hunter climbed out of the elevator and out of the window, attempting to ninja his way down to an overhang and then to the ground. He did not succeed.

@MysticalOctopus, Inverness, Daij_Djan: Thanks for the feedback. Good to know I was on the right track with the mana cost. A happy smile

I like how in the text version its a "Fearie". I know that's just a typo, but I actually like it better that way.

@sdfkjgh
No, the demonfairy is a sub-race of faerie that are reffered to as "demon-faries" because of their dark powers and hostile nature, as well as their slightly demonic apearance (if you count out the fact that all faeries on Lorwin have horns either way).
They are not demons at all, though they are just as powerfull. They are said to be able to grant any wish, but not unless you pay the price... But it's still a bit cheaper than bargaining with a demon. Unless of course you piss it off and get yourself killed...
To bad I can't add a description in the poll.

@MysticalOctopus
No, Fearie is not a typo. It is how the word "fairy" was originally written. The new spelling "fairy" has come later probably because it is easier to pronounce or something, idk.
Ooops! I didn't realize that was what you meant... English isn't my first language, so i sometimes mess up the order of a and e in some words... Pretty much because it is never the same and english doesn't make any sense to begin with
Well, the render is correct, so I won't change the text verion for now...

@Mahx: You're not the first to struggle with the inconsistencies of the English language, and you certainly won't be the last. The problem has its roots way back in the Norman Conquest. Since that time, English has become the linguistic equivalent of The Borg: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borg_(Star_Trek).

Just out of curiosity, what is your native language?

@Gurfle:
The +1/+1 counter text should be i line with the starting point. So "put" and "creature" should be under each other. Also I would nealy always choose to draw a card.
If you make it so you change "Draw a card" to "Create a 1/1 white Human Soldier creature token". that way it will be more situational on what to choose.
If you do that, you should make it cost Green mana symbolWhite mana symbol instead.

Thought I would throw something over here.

My Entry

Some gimmicky Simic +1/+1 counter shenanigans with weird tokens.

Flavor is that he harvests mutated bodies to research (card draw), creation of more mutants, or he just throws it on himself.

@BurningCreator: Welcome aboard! I don't see any wording issues, and the card looks pretty well-balanced to me - though do be aware that the text version is missing the P/T from the render.

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.
