Red mana symbolRed mana symbol, sacrifice a land: Kruss, Gorger of Worlds deals 3 damage to target creature or player. Then, put a +1/+1 counter on it.
When Kruss, Gorger of Worlds leaves the battlefield, each opponent sacrfices X lands, where X is Kruss, Gorger of Worlds's power.
His judgement is dark, burning, and climactic.

Kruss is endlessly roaming around the plane of Colfbrand, terrorizing the countryside, incinerating the villages and livestock. He does everything a classic fantasy dragon should do (except hoard treasure). He wants nothing less than the total destruction of the wretched species that is man.

I'm actually not sure. My original intent to have it just be from letting mana empty from your mana pool between phases, and then I thought, "Maybe it'll apply to when you use mana to cast spells..." And now I sit here and wonder.

So now the next challenge is something I have wanted to post here anyways but the timing is ironic as there has been some recent controversy on this subject here lately... I want you to design a card that does do what a color can't do. There are some rules though:

1. It HAS to make sense mechanically and in flavor.
2. You cannot simply raise the CMC or rarity (not to be confused with appropriate balancing).
3. It does not have to be mono-colored but it has to do something that all colors it possesses does not do.
4. It cannot have anything to do with a color that has that effect aka no "if you control an Island" or "if Red mana symbol was spent to cast this".

If I have confused anyone here are some examples:

Green does not get spot removal.
Wing Snare is a good example of how green can do it. Unyaro Bee Sting is a bad example since it is just a raise in CMC.

Red does not get card draw.
Browbeat is a great example of red getting around that.

White does not get counterspells.
Lapse of Certainty is a great example of how it can.

Hope that sets the stage. I will shoot for judging next Sat or Sun (my schedule is determined by my newborn). Let the games begin!

So, I thought of many concepts as to what certain colors can't do and that many colors can do stuff that is outside their specialty; and of course, black can do anything if you pay the price (or life). But what about stealing your opponent's stuff? Blue's specialty for sure, but we've seen our fair share of it in red, certainly black, and even a bit in white; but green? May I present:

Soryy Teljilad, but green can destroy lands. And it does it a lot.

Red can't destroy creatures (other than by bringing them to a horrible death by burning alive) and enchantments, and blue can't destroy any permanents (with rare exceptions like Pongify or Frozen Solid, and when it does the phrase "It jumps though a loop or two" is the understatement of the day).

This:

Target permanent becomes an artifact in addition to its other types. (This effect lasts indefinitely.)
If Chrome and Crush was kicked, destroy target permanent if it’s an artifact.

Oh my god, kill it, KILL IT!”

It's basically Memnarchs first ability with a simple Shatter, with a different wording to make it work.
Memnarch + Shatter = Vindicate

At the beginning of your next main phase add White mana symbol to your mana pool for each Cleric you control.

I don't think I need to say any more!

Target creature gets -X/-0 until end of turn.

In Llanowar, even the smallest distraction can be dangerous.

This is traditionally a blue ability, and green doesn't have much in the way of tricks or dealing with creatures (other than fogs).

In black, Clone ability shows as an impostor-generating. Isn't it interesting?

Okay, but it's rarely appeared and it's also a form of removal, when my card isn't. I edit my card so it won't be a dead card at any time

Flip a coin. If you win the flip destroy target artifact. If you lose the flip destroy target enchantment.
Draw a card.
I'm pretty sure blue rarely gets any of these effects (other than the cantrip obviously)

Holy crap. Nice card Lord Joakim; way to twist a red ability onto a blue card.
Also, I think your wording works perfectly.
