Ninja'd... I will work on the new challenge tomorrow, if it's still active.

Spoiler:
Jace's Companion: its abilities fit in blue, but it's unusual to see a 0/1 drake, even if it gets bigger over time. Its first ability is a bit weird, as card-drawing instants aren't very common, so it usually gets only a single counter each turn.
I would suggest a change:
Whenever you draw a card, if it isn't your draw step, put a +1/+1 counter on ~.
At the beginning of your draw step, remove all counters from ~, then draw that many cards.
1/1
This version would probably require a higher cost.

Spawnpeddler 5 mana symbol
Creature -- Eldrazi Blue mana symbol
Annihilator 3
Whenever -this- deals combat damage to a player, that player puts that many -Eldrazi Spawns tokens, you know their stats- onto the battlefield.
5/5

@Uprisen Demon
I could care less about the balance of this card. The assignment, however, is what I'm going to focus on. The assignment of creating a white demon is difficult, since a demon is a magically created embodiment of black mana. The same is true for the white angel, which is the embodiment of white mana. Fallen Angel works because it has been corrupted by black mana or something. I expected to see a 'forgiven', 'purified' or 'arisen' demon, but this demon still plays with black mana, and it does not explain itself throughoutly. I'm going to give it a worse grade (Although I don't grade things in here, I just talk about them. A happy smile ) but remember it's because the challenge is so <EXPLETIVE> hard. A white demon? But how?

Next challenge: Make any iconic creature for green. The iconic creatures for the other colors are white angels, blue sphinxes, black demons and red dragons. It must be rare and shouldn't trespass on common creature types.

I rate boarswine nurturer 7/10. I like how with 3/3 beast creature tokens circulating, you can use a goblin and pump them up to 4/4, honorary green fatties, even with the "sac: gain life" effect that belongs to a lot of them. I would love to play these in my token deck along with some mighty leaps. Also, swearing is NOT good.

I did'nt quite understand your challenge, am I supposed to make a creature that represents green as a color, or a green sphinx, angel, etc.?

I'll try the former.

I'm not for erasing the challenge of the Shakespeare, I just don't think it's magic related enough. How bout a legendary like Shakespeare? Or make Shakespeare into a legendary?

@Cthulhupwn - You might want to check out this link to know what iconic and characteristic means. An avatar is alright, but green's problem at the moment is that green doesn't really have a creature that can showcase the color. They're playing with Hydras, but they're very hard to design.

Wurms! Wurms! Wurms! Very green iconic. All I can say!

1. They're almost never anything but green.
2. They are tough and powerful.
3. They are ferocious at times.
4. They are natural.

Need I say more?

@frederickwaffles:
Not magic enough? Lots of things in this game are not related to magic besides the fact that they are cards. There was a santa claus card, and donnie darko to boot. There were even some historical figures.

BUT the challenge was DEFINITELY NOT to make SHAKESPEARE HIMSELF!Weird smile

I don't get why Shakespeare would be easier or more magic related than making a magic card for Prospero or Richard the 3rd.

Mercutio: 9/10. The only real flaw is the wording of the ability, since (as noted) it can be discarded to nuke critters for free (just wait till you're holding 8 cards).

Einaki, the Mad Bishop: 8/10. For this price, I'd like to see more power on my first-striker, and I don't like seeing "planeswalker" written in text boxes. I think it would still be a powerful card even if I was forced to choose between damaging the opponent or their planeswalker, and I'd like to not whack my own 'walkers in the face. Stick out your tongue A solid concept and design, though, and I'm not going to nitpick red vigilance. Winking smiley

4.5/10 You have a basic idea, but the card doesn't show how it became a mono-white, and it doesn't feel at all like a Goblin. Defender? More toughness than power? I just don't see Goblin in that.

Hurin, the Savior 2 mana symbolWhite mana symbolWhite mana symbolWhite mana symbol
Planeswalker - Hurin
[+1] Regenerate target creature. This ability can be used as an instant.
[-1] Target creature is indestructible until end of turn.
[-7] Sacrifice ~, if you do, all creatures you control are indestructible until your next upkeep.
[4]
"I found a people, oppressed, enslaved, bereft of hope and love. They are now my wards, and I will do anything to save them."

Next Challenge: A card that gives your opponents life (but not you) and damages you (but not your opponents) but you would still want to play.

Hurin - I like what you're trying to do, making a saving, self-sacrificing planeswalker, and he is properly colored. But as a planeswalker, he isn't very neatly designed. He's actually horrible. So I wouldn't score this good.

Your challenge is tough.

Flesh Injection Black mana symbol
Enchantment Red mana symbol
~ is indestructible.
At the beginning of your upkeep, you lose 2 life and target opponent gains 2 life.
When an opponent has 40 or more life, sacrifice ~. If you do, you gain control of all permanents that player controls.
"Take my flesh, eat my bread, and my soul will be truer than yours to yourself."

Next challenge:

Make me a Minotaur. Show me why it should be more important as a red creature.

Flesh Injection - I actually like this from a design standpoint. All permanents is a little over the top though, I give it an 8/10.

Now to the challenge:

Talruum Chieftain
2 mana symbolRed mana symbolRed mana symbol
Creature - Minotaur Warrior
Minotaur spells you cast cost 1 mana symbol less to cast.
Minotaur creatures you control get +1/+2 and have haste.
Talruum chieftains called for blood, and it is usually what they received.
3/3
Rare

Next challenge - Create a planeswalker with an ultimate that can't be activated unless another card makes it possible. (usually this will mean no add loyalty ability, with starting loyalty less than needed for ultimate, but could be anything)

Ok.

First off, Frederickwaffles, you have to rate the entry before you. (That would be me Big smile )

Secondly, k1l1 you didn't do anything wrong. This game is very much first come, first serve, so Frederickwaffles was a little too late. A happy smile

The Hexlores: This is a very messy way to deal with the challenge. It does too much. It's interesting how one of them is a beatstick beatifier while the other is a control helper, but that doesn't decomplicate the final token. The last token could just as easily have been Blue/red mana symbol or Green/blue mana symbol. For the rest of the challenge, I think you nailed it - somehow. But this wouldn't go for modern Magic, really. Sadly. A sad &#039;frowny&#039; Something like mentioning the planeswalker/legend rule outside Mirror Gallery - and especially without reminder text, albeit that could be fixed - shouldn't be done. The minigame this creates is good. (Attack either one to screw with the plan while hoping the other doesn't grow too big to ultimate.) The implementation isn't really top notch, you're trying to do too much with these cards. The token is too messy. Dual hybrid on a token's activated ability? Really?

windandfire - 9/10 It's a good card, the only reason I'm not giving it a perfect score because it seems as though the only reason it is common is to meet the challenge. This card just doesn't "feel" common. It's a great card, just the challenge brought it down.

@frederickwaffles: You only get to rate when you post a card. Thus, in this thread, the person who gives the challenge is rarely the person to judge it's fulfillment.

Etherium Egg: Solid card, a few minor things though: When you use an egg on mtg, usually people want to see it hatch. I like the way you took with "to hell with hatching. I'm hungry.", but I'm not perfectly sure I understand why it sprouts homonuculi. Also one technical thing (which is just me nutpicking, really), the defender would be above the other abilities.

Ugin, Spirit Dragon 5 mana symbol
Planeswalker - Ugin M Mana for MTG Extra
+1: Target creature is colorless, loses all abilities and gets +3/+3 until end of turn.
-2: Target creature gets -X/-X, where X is the number of colored mana symbols in it’s cost.
-5: You get an emblem with “any time you could activate a mana ability, you may pay White mana symbol, Blue mana symbol, Black mana symbol, Red mana symbol or Green mana symbol. If you do, add 2 mana symbol to your mana pool.”
Starting Loyalty: 3

So, yes, this is the colorless Spirit Dragon that helped sealing away the Eldrazi. The first ability represents cleaning away all traces of color within a creature. As this also washes away the abilities that color granted (oh, and any other too), this may be a good or a bad thing.
The second one is just a general dislike of color, and the ultimate grants loads of colorless mana. Have fun.

Next:
An aggressive creature with a absurdly good price/power ratio. In order to do that, use a drawback that we don't see every day.

Sun, 2011-04-03 20:14
elmdor
elmdor's picture

Ugin, Spirit Dragon: the only thing I don't like of it is the ultimate, which isn't game-winning enough for a planeswalker that costs five mana. Its other abilities are fine; maybe the -2 could be -1/-1 for each color of target creature.

A creature I made a lot of time ago fits the challenge perfectly. I wanted to post it but I always forgot to do...

Syobon 1 mana symbol
Legendary Creature -- Cat Red mana symbol
When Syobon is dealt combat damage, you lose the game.
4/4

It comes from a videogame named Syobon Action, which is like Super Mario but with a cat as the main character; it's filled with traps like enemies that appear out of nowhere and power-ups that kill the player, everything is deadly.

Next challenge: make a legendary Cyclops creature.

@frederickwaffles I'm sure people won't mind if you rate anytime, as long as you have good constructive criticism for them. After all, the main purpose of this thread is to practice our design skills, what good is practice if we can't see how to improve?

Also, on ratings:

I really rather approve long, well-thought sentences about specific designs than "10/10 Great card. Next."

The purpose of this thread isn't to get good grades, it's to get better as a designer; challenge game challenges your skill.

It's the reason I type so much random stuff onto my gradings and don't give actual grades. It's the exact above ideals I have.

elmdor - Wow. You lose the game definitely isn't a drawback you see everyday. Is he supposed to be an artifact or just colorless? If it wasn't for that drawback I think it would actually see play. I think the losing the game thing there is a little too extreme. I think it would make more sense to have it drain half your life or mill you. Those are rarer drawbacks and would make this guy a lot more useful. Bend it without breaking it. 9/10

Timebreaker: 1/10. Sorry if that's harsh, but your card basically reads like this:

Quote:
Timebreaker 2 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlue mana symbol
Creature — Vedalken Wizard Red mana symbol
When Timebreaker enters the battlefield, take three extra turns after this one.
When Timebreaker leaves the battlefield, skip your next three turns.
0/1

What we have here is Time Stretch stuck on a Time Warp stuck on a Goat. You do get a point for trying to make a system for repaying your turns, but I think you should look towards Time Vault and Magosi, the Waterveil to see ways of doing that in less easily-abusable ways. Perhaps something as simple as this:

Quote:
Timebreaker 2 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlue mana symbol
Creature — Vedalken Wizard Red mana symbol
When Timebreaker enters the battlefield, put an eon counter on it and skip your next turn.
Tap symbol, Remove an eon counter from Timebreaker: Take an extra turn after this one.
2/3

One last bit of parting advice: Always reread your cards, in case they do something you never noticed.

Onward, to the challenge.

Sensei Le Roof - You're first ability is unnecessary. Just make it say "Enchant creature with infect" and you wouldn't need that clause in there. I don't like the swapping of infect for absorb. The card would have been better if it just removed infect. The only reason most people would use this is to immobilize a threat of poison. So why not just eliminate the infecting abilities instead of shifting them to some other benefit? 7 out of 10

Oops!
I'm really sorry! The Timbreaker in the rules text should be Timebreaker. It's just the same fault at multiple times. Sorry Frustrated

EDIT: added "be" between "should" and "Timebreaker"
I really should learn to write. A happy smile

Rating: I like this card. The protection from humans is really cool... It's very balanced. But it's exactly on treshold between rare and mythic rare. 9/10

Now my card:

Panda Bear 2 mana symbolGreen mana symbolGreen mana symbol
Creature - Bear Beast Blue mana symbol
Trample
Green mana symbol, Sacrifice a Forest: Panda Bear gets +1/+1 until end of turn and you gain 1 life

It really loves bamboo, but when aren't any bamboo here, it enjoys even the normal wood.
2/2

I hope there are no mistakes in the rules text.
And next challenge: make a creature that will attack two times each turn.

Creature-Zombie Knight M Mana for MTG Extra
Deathtouch
Black/red mana symbolBlack/red mana symbol, discard your hand: Untap ~. You get an additional combat phase this turn. Use this only if you have cards in your hand.

Rakdos destroyer: doesn't fit the challenge. If I were to play with it, I would ignore the ability in favor of keeping my hand, and it would not get to attack twice. The only idea i had for something that actually worked that way was this:

Keyword (whenever this creature attacks and deals combat damage to a player, exile it and then return it to the battlefield tapped and attacking and it loses this ability until end of turn.)

on to the card:

I tried and tried to make a card that actually gets a subliminal message across, and failed miserably at it. The problem with sending recognizable subliminal messages is that it destroys their sublimity. Due to the fact that I try to post here at least once a week, I must try your challenge though. I have decided to, instead of following completely the challenge, make a card that represents a subliminal message. I took my cue from brave new world, by Aldous Huxley. delightful reading. I recommend it.

Sleep-conditioning Slip 4 mana symbol

Artifact-- Blue mana symbol

At the end of your upkeep, put a Hypnopaedia counter on up to 1 target tapped creature you control and up to 1 target tapped creature an opponent controls.
Black creatures with Hypnopaedia counters on them cannot block or be blocked by green creatures.
Green creatures with Hypnopaedia counters on them cannot block or be blocked by black creatures.

Flavor text, though it probably wouldn't fit (I can't do italics):
"Gammas wear black. Black is such a beastly color. We betas wear green. No, I don't want to play with gammas. No, I don't. We betas are so clever."

Challenge:
Turn any lovecraftian monster of fiction into an eldrazi.

Cthulhu eats YER MIND SOUL AND BRAIN.
He also makes for a kickbutt eldrazi deck.

No, I thought somethink like this:
CARDNAME MANACOST
TYPE RARITY
Whenever CARDNAME attacks, if it's the first time it attacks this turn, untap it and after this phase, there is an additional combat phase followed by an additional main phase.
POWER/TOUGHNESS

Legendary Creature - Human Monk Rare
Tap symbol, Deal 3 damage to target creature.

Last card: 7/10. Pretty good card, though the text could be better.
