Some games have become so popular that they've been designated "official," with submissions arranged by the
staff into an open poll instead of being left for the previous winner to decide. If you would like to enter, simply
post your own entry for the current challenge. Winners may sometimes see their designs posted to the front page.

The winner must issue the next challenge.

okay... this sounds like a semi good idea thing is you make the card does all MTG cards no onc has yet to chose a planeswalker because they arent interested in it. I dont see this lasting long but Ill do it.

Hmm... A lot of entries... early judging!

Tomiix

Spoiler:
Wording kills you here. And if wizards made a flying PW, would they do this? And why green, the anti-aircraft color?

Balaam

Spoiler:
Firstly, your render does not match. I will assume the type up is the entry. And, what I was looking for was a flying creature with balanced flying support. I find putting a 9/9 token uncreative.

Anuttymous

Spoiler:
The first of the many keyword mashers I saw here in these entries. Your goal in the PW was to shove lifelink into your flying creatures, and give all your creatures first strike, flying, and lifelink. Feels pretty timmy.

Windandfire

Spoiler:
One of the more original PWs but the +1/+0 counter is slightly confusing, and not yet created. His ultimate is supposed to turn you into a Dragon. Pretty cool. Story wise, pretty cool.

Guitarweeps

Spoiler:
A flying and anti flying critter... Alright. Different, but it doesn't cut it for me.

Kikushadowblades

Spoiler:
Hmm. Different aproach at a flying PW. The ultimate doesn't seem too flavorful though. What do the birds care about your graveyard?

Trenchcoatguy

Spoiler:
A BLACK flying PW. Hmm. But a +1 ability for a Child of the Night with more toughness and flying seems to be too much. And why does she make everyone fly? If all creatures have flying, flying is useless. And a flying syphon? This PW is all over the place.

Bassplayer2319

Spoiler:
While I wanted to get a Flying Planeswalker, this is really cool. Anti-flying PW, with a swarm of spiders, it doesn't get anybetter than this. You could have gotten away with making his ultimate cost less though.

Sohel

Spoiler:
Why are the tokens scouts as well as birds? And they don't have to be white AND blue. Another +1 ability that simply boosts flyers... this should be -1. The ultimate is another timmy boost.

Elmdor

Spoiler:
It is hard to keep track of a flyer simply due to a +1/+1 counter. Some Phoenix Phenomenon to add on to it, but it doesn't fit. An ultimate groundscorcher. Cool.

Werrdna50

Spoiler:
This creature's first 2 abilities are not as much supporting fliers, but the flying creatures suupport the PW instead. Too much flying prerequisites. And owl is not a creature type. It is bird.

Nikeyeia

Spoiler:
Too much thopters. Sorry.

Lady of Armageddon

Spoiler:
Balanced, but it feels unoriginal when 2 abilities produce the same tokens.

Jhincherick

Spoiler:
Disqualified. Being a vampire, Alucard had potential.

Shinra974

Spoiler:
A mess. The 0 ability is useless, and the others seem too timmy keyword mashy. Tu peut faires des cartes meilleurs!(Terrible french grammar right here.)

Sorrow

Spoiler:
The first 2 abilities are okay, out after three turns if you blocked him propperly, you can get all your dragons and angels out when you should only have 7 lands if you played Trench on turn 4.

Skulduggery

Spoiler:
2 abilities that boost P/T and give reach. Wow. Completely underpowered too. If you posted a low rarity, I may have liked it more at uncommon.

Well, seeing as Spyra won, it looks like it's my turn to set the challenge. So, Feb 27 is the judging date so you have a week to give me your entries.

CHALLENGE: This will be an open theme. You can do whatever you want with your Planeswalker this week. However, I will be judging on these points

1) Flavor. The abilities have to work well together. Don't just throw together three random abilities.
2) Balance. Wizards is trying not to print cards like the P9 anymore. Make it playable, but not broken.
3) Originality. Don't just make a functional reprint of Jace or Elspeth. Do something new.

Have fun!

Erm... Not sure an open theme is a good idea. The whole point is that we're meant to be stretching our ability to make cards. By offering no theme/challenge/idea, there is no stretching going on. Just dig up an old planeswalker from recent times, and post that.

Maybe a theme is worth doing?

OK, not going to point any fingers here, but I've seen around the forums that some people are having trouble balancing cards and not making them overpowered, I've noticed that some people have trouble making a balanced card that has flavor, and I've noticed some people aren't putting as much originality into their cards. For these reasons I chose an open theme and those particular points to judge on since that's a really important aspect of Magic design. However, if that's not a good enough "theme" for people then the theme can be...idk...pick a Legendary creature from M:tG. They have just become a Planeswalker. Show me. Again, judging is based on flavor, balance, and originality. By this I basically mean I want the PW to be close to the original so that you can see the connection between them in more than just name, but I want it to feel new and different as well. Balance and playability should be kept in mind as well. Try not to make it "broken" in other words.

Thank you for the theme. It's quite a good one, seeing as Bolas seems to be the only one that this has actually happened to before.

Also, if you're worried about people not doing a very good job of their balancing, then just give them a low score, and move on. Eventually, people get better, or leave. But yeah, I'm not arguing.

@shinra Just another rules issue with your card you might not be aware of: When you activate the second ability (+X), you choose how much X is. That means I can choose 1 million, prevent the next 1 million damage dealt to something this turn (even if it doesn't receive that amount), and get 1 million loyalty counters on it. The -X ability doesn't have this problem because you can't remove more counters than it has, but you can always put more counters on for a +X.

+2 Draw a card. Niv-Mizzet deals 1 damage to target creature or player.
-1 During target player's turn, the next instant or sorcery spell you cast has replicate. The replicate cost is equal to its mana cost.
-5 If there is exactly 1 loyalty counter on Niv-Mizzet, he deals 6 damage to each creature and each opponent Then you draw 9 cards and untap all lands you control.
Loyalty [3]

Notes:
First ability represents the Firemind, the extrasensory link to Niv-Mizzet. It's based from Niv-Mizzet's card ability.

Second ability represents the Izzet's keyword mechanic "Replicate". Sadly, no space for reminder text. Based from Djinn Illuminatus.

Ultimate is based from "(Z–>)90º – (E–N²W)90ºt = 1" on Niv-Mizzet's very own card flavor text though the effect is more Fiery Gambit than anything.

-9: Exile target player's hand and graveyard. They lose life equal to the number of cards exiled this way.

I wanted to do Ob Nixilis and try to capture the Demon aspect of him. I tried it before and failed. The first ability is a reminder of the original. The second plays on the fact that Demons don't really care about sides. They are perfectly fine hurting your team as anyone elses. The third was my take on Demonic/Vampiric Tutor but to the next level. The final seemed like a good way that he preys on the destruction already wreaked on his opponent. Add pain to misery.

+1 Put a 2/2 green Bear creature token onto the battlefield.
-1 Kamahl deals 3 damage to target creature or player.
-6 Creatures you control get +3/+3 and gain trample until end of turn.
[3]

I've been thinking about everyone's favourite Odyssey/Onslaught-era barbarian turned druid, but was on the fence as to which version to work with. I used Kamahl's Summons as the base for putting out bear tokens. I thought that maybe that should be a -X ability to give you an army, but ultimately went with that being the +1 ability. That aside, I went with his abilities as Pit Fighter and Fist o' Krosa, respectively.

@New Kind of Christ: you said that it's hard to keep track of a flyer simply due to a +1/+1 counter, then you make a card with the same ability but without the counter. How are you supposed to keep track of this? I added a counter in order to help memory, as it happens on real cards like the volvers or Benalish Lancer or Aven Mimeomancer.

My card:
Shimatsu the Destroyer 3 mana symbolRed mana symbol
Planeswalker -- Shimatsu M Mana for MTG Extra
As Shimatsu the Destroyer enters the battlefield, sacrifice any number of permanents. Shimatsu enters the battlefield with that many loyalty counters on it.
-X: X target creatures can't block this turn.
-X: Shimatsu deals X damage to each creature that was dealt damage this turn and to each player that was dealt damage this turn.

Here's my twist on Mayael the Anima

Mayael the Awoken RGGW

Planeswalker-Mayael

+1 Search your deck for a basic land card. Put it onto the battlefield with an Awakening token on it. It has “Sacrifice an Awakening token: Put a green 0/1 Anima creature Token onto the battlefield.

-X Put X 0/1 Green Anima creature tokens onto the battlefield. They have: Sacrifice this creature, draw a card.

-8 Search your deck for a creature card with converted mana cost 7 or more. It gains affinity for Anima creature tokens.

I'll just do a tribute to my old username, Raksha Golden Cub.
Raksha, Kha Planeswalker 5 mana symbolWhite mana symbolWhite mana symbol
Planeswalker - Raksha Mythic Rare
+1: Target creature you control has Vigilance until EOT. if it is equipped, it gets +2/+1 until EOT.
-2: Search in your library for a nonlegendary Equipment card, and put it onto the battlefield attached to target creature.
-9: You get an emblem with "Cats you control get +2/+2 and have double strike."
4

His first ability is based on Raksha having Vigilance, and as I thought as a +1 ability it was weak, I made it give a boost.
His second ability is based on Taj-Nar Swordsmith. I dunno. I just liked it.
His third ability is a flashback to what Raksha did.
If you notice, 5 mana symbolWhite mana symbolWhite mana symbol is Raksha's original CMC, and 4 is his toughness.

This sounds like fun. This is my first post here and i don't do planeswalkers very well.

Based off of Sol'kanar the Swamp King.

Sol'kanar, Swamp's Gaurdian 3 mana symbolBlack mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Planeswalker - Sol'kanar Mythic Rare
Whenever a player casts a black spell, you may gain 1 life.
+1: Target Swamp becomes a 3/3 black Horror creature with Wither until end of turn. It still counts as a land.
-2: You draw a card and target opponent discards a card. You lose 2 life.
-6: Destroy each nonblack creature on the battlefield. Draw a card for each creature destroyed in this way.

When i look at the original, it doesn't make any sense as to why he is blue and red, so i removed them for his 'walker version.
