Rockjaw - An awesome card, but he's so strong that the life gain seems like an after thought. I think it would have been better if he hurt you when attacking & blocking, thus you have to sac mountains to gain back the damage he dealt. 9/10

Swamps

Mire Surge - Black mana symbol
Sorcery Chaos Symbol
Search your graveyard for a basic land and put it into play tapped.

Next, green - Make a massive green flier! (Double points if he's not a dragon.)

Mire Surge - Very interesting ... I like it! 9/10

Winged Kong 4 mana symbolGreen mana symbolGreen mana symbol
Red mana symbol
Creature - Ape
Flying
6/7

Next Challenge : A colorless non-creature / Eldrazi spell. The card cannot have a line saying '~ is [COLOR]'

EDIT : Completely forgot the 'massive' part of the challenge. Fixed.

Ouch, had my post ninja'd, and then gobbled up by the next page. =/

Doesn't really matter, though. I think I took the "can't fetch only Swamps" part too far.

I would not call Winged Monkey massive, nor possible in green nowadays; Scryb Sprites isn't coming back any time soon. I think the only possible green fliers would have to be very big to offset that weird colorshift, much like how Black gets trample at higher costs, and Red gets flying at higher costs.

EDIT: A much nicer fix, however, I don't think those are very befitting stats for a green flier. To offset the weirdness of flying in Green, I'd say it needs a steeper cost; for instance, 6 mana symbolGreen mana symbol gets you a 7/7 Enormous Baloth, so 4 mana symbolGreen mana symbolGreen mana symbol shouldn't get you a flying 6/7.

Nullblight 2 mana symbol
Instant Common
As an additional cost to cast Nullblight, exile a black card from your hand.
Destroy target colored creature.

Next: Make another card that has an additional cost to cast it. (Not optional)

Nullblight - A simple Eldrazi removal spell. Great job with it. 10/10

I'm not sure if this qualifies as an "additional cost" but it is an "additional requirement".

Anamoidyx Blue/red mana symbol
Creature - Weird Blue mana symbol
Flash
You may only cast ~ if there is a spell on the stack.

Next: Make a red/green Giant.

Spellproof Giant - Right to the point. Giant that doesn't like spells. Simple. Works. 10/10

While I don't think any color is "off-color" for a Phyrexian, I will give it a go.

Trenec, The Will Bender 3 mana symbolWhite mana symbolWhite mana symbol
M Mana for MTG Extra
Planeswalker - Trenec
+1: Put a +1/+1 counter on up to two target creatures.
-1: You get an emblem with "1 mana symbolWhite mana symbolWhite mana symbol, Tap symbol:Sacrifice this emblem. Gain control of target creature with a counter."
-7: Gain control of all creatures with counters. Then put three +1/+1 counters on each creature you control.
4

Next Challenge : Make me an aura that costs COLORLESS mana to cast, but does nothing unless COLORED mana is used. (Think reversed Burden of Guilt)

Rating: That second ability is a bit clunky, and should be "with a counter on it". Likewise, for the third ability, "with counters on them". Also, having a permanent +3/+3 boost to all your creatures (and stolen ones, no less), is pretty dangerous; +2/+2 seems fairer (since I understand it's meant to be used in case you don't want to steal guys). I do really approve of how well it works with proliferate.

Nullshimmer Cloak 2 mana symbol
Enchantment - Aura Rare
Enchant creature
1 mana symbolRed mana symbol: Copy target instant or sorcery spell that targets enchanted creature.
1 mana symbolBlue mana symbol: Change a target of target spell to enchanted creature.
Magic itself breaks down in the presence of nullstuff, bending and diffusing chaotically, as the laws of wizardry and physics break down piece by piece.

Nullshimmer Cloack - Interesting... And pretty scary too. Don't really have a word to judge them. 10/10

It was meant to be funny though.

Bite the Dust 5 mana symbol
Tribal Instant - Eldrazi Uncommon
Target player sacrifices a colored creature of your choice.

All is Dust, just bit smaller.

Next: Possibly one of the hardest challenge. Make a card with effect "Player plays a MAGIC subgame" that would not be banned, and its not even near unhinged, and possibly playable.

EDIT:

Doh! Beaten to the draw. My (invalid) entry hidden below.

Spoiler:
Nullshimmer - Definitely handy- worthless on it's own, but gains power through color. To get full 10 points, it would have to justify a little better why it's not a simple Blue mana symbolRed mana symbol spell. Maybe when you used the Red ability, the aura became "red" for the turn. 9/10

Spectrum Fugitive - 3 mana symbol
Creature - Specter Blue mana symbol
2 mana symbol: Spectrum Fugitive gains protection from the color of your choice until end of turn.
If Spectrum Fugitive becomes colored, destroy it.
The aether is filled with quantum creatures, that only exist until someone observes them long enough to realize that they don't.
2/2

Next:
Creature a non-blue card that changes color (of either itself or of other cards.)

I'll try it:

Eldrazi - very nice. Probably balanced at 4 mana symbol, considering how strong dust is at 7. 10/10.

subgame -

Challenge of the Mind - 3 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlue mana symbol
Sorcery - M Mana for MTG Extra
Choose a target player. Both you and that player reveal cards one at a time. Add 1 to that player's "Challenge Total" for each power of any creatures revealed and each for damage that a sorcery or instant would deal to an opponent. The first player with a total of 20 or more wins- the opposing player loses half of his or life, rounded down. Shuffle all revealed cards into the player's library.

Next: Same as my earlier attempt, Creature a non-blue card that changes color (of either itself or of other cards.)

@Inanimate - Ah, I knew I was forgetting something. I think I had the P/T at 2/1.

Challenge of the Mind - An interesting little game, but I don't think that was what the challenge was asking for. It believe Kagerows wanted something like Enter the Dungeon, but not Un-. If I'm wrong, then the card is still very clumsy and has a LOT of text. The wording is off here and there, and the card is overall kind of confusing. 5/10

Spectra Chameleon 1 mana symbolGreen mana symbol
Creature - Lizard Red mana symbol
1 mana symbol: ~ becomes the color of mana paid to activate this ability and gains protection from that color.

Spectra Chameleon: Normally protection is in white's color-pie, but I think the limitation on it being your color is far more safe; it's akin to how green gets landwalk. I approve! I think this could pass as uncommon, possibly? Possibly.

Conglomerating Slime X mana symbolGreen mana symbolGreen mana symbol
Creature - Ooze Rare
Conglomerating Slime enters the battlefield with X +1/+1 counters on it.
1 mana symbolGreen mana symbol, sacrifice an Ooze: Distribute X +1/+1 counters among up to X target creatures, where X is the sacrificed creature's power.

Conglomerate Slime - The "s" in "sacrifice" should be capitalized. I only bring that up because that's about the worst I can say about this card. Well, that I and I suppose it isn't a strict lord-type creature (much like Goblin Chieftain), but I'm not even sure that that's what k1l1 was looking for. It's a pretty neat card. I like the flavor of it, and it really fits the whole "lots of stuff" Ooze creatures seem to have (Ooze Garden, Gutter Grime, Mitotic Slime). 8.5/10

Memory Gel 1 mana symbolBlue mana symbol
Creature — Ooze Blue mana symbol
When Memory Gel dies, draw a card for each +1/+1 counter on Memory Gel.
1 mana symbol, Discard a card: Put a +1/+1 counter on Memory Gel.
1/1

Next up! Design a noncreature Elemental card (so, you'll probably wind up using the Tribal supertype).

Enchanted creature gets +4/+0, gains haste and trample, and is an Elemental in addition to its other types.

Overcharge: Great job capturing the flavor of an elemental. I think the cost is right for the rarity as well. One gripe I do have is that it could have easily been made into a sorcery instead. Also, I understand that you were trying to keep it from being OP by using "exile" instead of "dies" (otherwise indestructible would break this card), but the same effect could have been achieved by using "sacrifice" and been much more within red's comfort zone (see Ball Lightning, etc). Overall, solid card.

Conduit of the Queen Blue/black mana symbol

Soooo this might not actually work, but I could not resist that challenge.

Conduit of the Queen - Love it. The balance, the flavor, everything. I don't think it needs to be a Rogue, though (at least, not until it reaches its lowest level). Four creature types is a bit much. 10/10

Calista's War Room 1 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlue mana symbol
Enchantment Red mana symbol
There is an additional main phase before your untap step.

I balanced it against Leyline of Anticipation. Not really sure if it's actually balanced or not, though.

Next up! Design a creature card. The word "double" must appear in its rules text. It can't have double strike.

Hunter of the Wicked deals double damage to Black creatures.

Hunter of the Wicked - Very white. Just a lovely little creature :3 10/10 Sorry, I am too nice with my reviews ><

The red burn spell was : Blazing Salvo which is (in my opinion) one of the greatest burn spells of all time.

Stubborn Barbarian 2 mana symbolGreen mana symbolGreen mana symbol
Blue mana symbol
Creature - Human Barbarian
Trample
Whenever Stubborn Barbarian is dealt damage, prevent that damage. For each 1 damage prevented this way, put a +1/+1 counter on Stubborn Barbarian.

Barbarians equate courage with the ability to endure pain.

Interesting - a Hydra ability, without the Hydra. You took that flavor text and very deftly translated it into mechanics. This is a quintessential green card: "For the love of God, you do NOT want to block me", it says. Very, very nice job!

Ursa Astera 2 mana symbolGreen mana symbolGreen mana symbol
Legendary Creature - Bear Spirit Incarnation Mythic Rare
Ordained (This spell costs 1 mana symbol less to cast for each green spell cast before it this turn.)
Green creatures you control get +1/+1, have trample, and are Bears in addition to their other types.

If a creature would enter the battlefield under an opponent's control this turn, instead creature on the bottom of its owner's library.

Kagerows: It's green creatures you control, which is very limiting. I balanced that off of the series of Liege cards in Shadowmoor, which indicate it's probably fine. Further, it can't stack, unlike those buffs and Lieges.

I always like doing two challenges at once, so I call dibs. To prevent another ninja, I'll just post this and edit my entry into it in a second.

While it'll only 'catch' the first creature played (who would be silly enough to play another after that), putting it on the bottom of the library is very evil. Excommunicate, as an instant, would definitely be far more than 1 mana symbolWhite mana symbol.

Nice interpretation of the flavor text; it is very fitting on a Silence spell. I also took the liberty of editing your wording.

This allows permanents to hit the field, so people can still set up, but basically shuts off any shenanigans or damage that could be inflicted. It'd be more balanced at 2 mana symbolWhite mana symbol, or if it affected you (fitting, since white likes enchantments and defensive creatures and artifacts anyway). I approve.

Devour 2 (As this enters the battlefield, you may sacrifice any number of creatures. This creature enters the battlefield with twice that many +1/+1 counters on it.)
Hellkite Monstrosity has all non-activated abilities of each creature it devoured.
3/3
Its food just got a lot smaller and its stomach a lot bigger.

Would this make sense or would I have to pull a Cairn Wanderer here and say "~ has flying. The same is true for fear, first strike, blahblahblah..."?

((Since mine got skipped)) Next Challenge : Take the flavor-text of a white creature, preferably an angel, and use it on a non-white creature card. Make sure you provide the name of the card used.

Horizon of Awakening comes into play tapped and it doesn’t untaps unless you control a basic land.

Flamefists - I like where you were going with this, but I think you should have had it "Red mana symbol: This creature gets +0/+2 until end of turn." The 'First Strike' is the weapon part of the FT, so the second part should have been the armor. Either way, I like the card, just didn't feel good with the flavor text you were given. 8/10

Land - Island Swamp

Golgari Replica - A very nice card. For 3 mana you get a mana-filterer, a gravedigger, and a 2/2 blocker. Not bad, although I've never heard of an "Artifact Creature - Zombie". 10/10

Creature - Human Coward Artificer Chaos Symbol
Whenever another creature enters the battlefield, ~ becomes an Artifact and loses all abilities until end of turn.

1/1

Next: Design a blue Demon or a black Sphinx.

@K1l1 - Nim Replica as well as most of the replica lines are pretty much just a class with no race. So wizard or shaman, but not also a human or elf.

Timid Townsman - Interesting ... It's ... Just interesting ... 10/10

Skip your draw step.
Pay 1 life: Draw a card.
6/7

Not sure if I got the cost right ... My thinking is if Sphinx of Uthuun is the creature form of Fact or Fiction, why not have a creature version of Yawgmoth's Bargain. Necropotence would have been too much.

Next : Like how I described above, make a White, Green, or Red creature that embodies a spell of the same color (IE. Rune-Scarred Demon is a 6/6 flier with a built in Demonic Tutor, an extremely good black card.)

Timid Townsman: Using the Coward type is great enough, but you also made a good card, too. It seems to serve as a weird card to support a set that cares about the number of artifacts you have, or just helps out artifacts in general. Definitely interesting way to avoid creature-based removal, and I like how he can't dodge out of the way of spells fast enough.

Flying
Whenever an opponent draws a card, that player discards a card.
Sphinxes are well known for their trade and knowledge of secrets. Yet, one must wonder: how does one make a secret?
6/5

Next: Make a red Wurm or a blue Angel.

Sphinx of Forbidden Wisdom: Very cool, but may be a tad to powerful in conjunction with reanimation. Still, coolness goes off the chart. 9/10
Starshadow Sphinx: I don't like how this can lock an opponent out of the game. I don't know how you would circumvent that and keep the effect, but as it is now, I don't enjoy the card. 6/10

I'll take both challenges.

Next: Make a creature that is literally forever alone (interpret as you wish, but balance it.)

Plateshaker Wurm - Amazing! really fun card to use in limited. Use burn deck with several ritual and song to pull it off fast, good card. While it feels bit dragon though. 9/10

Did I balanced it? I'm not sure, I tried some crazy things on this card...

Survivor of End World 9 mana symbolWhite mana symbolBlack mana symbol

<10>

Next : Make a card with "Exile everything else you own." Although I'm not sure that is even valid wording.

Survivor - I can't really understand it. Faction X?

Creature - Demon M Mana for MTG Extra
When ~ enters the battlefield, exile all cards you own on the battlefield.
Trample, Deathtouch
~'s power and toughness are each equal to the number of permanents exiled with it.
If a creature dealt damage by ~ would be put into a graveyard this turn, exile it instead.
