Alright, so this forum game is about what a card would be like as a mythic rare version of itself. For example, this card,

Ardent Recruit White mana symbol
Creature - Human Soldier Common
Metalcraft — Ardent Recruit gets +2/+2 as long as you control three or more artifacts.
1 / 1

Would become something like:

The Ardent Warrior 5 mana symbol White mana symbol
Creature - Human Soldier Mythic Rare
Metalcraft — Ardent Recruit gets +3/+3 as long as you control three or more artifacts.
4 / 4

That's because it is what he would be like if he became a mythic rare, because it's himself later on, after he gets really good in battle or whatever.

After I announce the winner of the first contest, that winner will pick the next card, of which contest HE will be the judge, unless he specifically hands the responsibility over to someone else, who must accept before it's law.
The contest card MUST be a common. Making a mythic rare out of another rare or mythic is kinda pointless. Uncommons just aren't as fun. Also, the card must be from the latest set, and can't have been chosen before.

So, for the first contest, the due date is on next wednesday, and this card will be the weak version, and you make a mythic version:

Tine Shrike 3 mana symbol White mana symbol
Creature - Bird Common
Flying
Infect (This creature deals damage to creatures in the form of -1/-1 counters and to players in the form of poison counters.)
2/1

You might want to say when you will score a contest when you start when to give people a time frame they can reference if they want to. Also, just so you know; you can link your card like this:

[card]Tine Shrike[/card]

and it will create Tine Shrike.

Anyways, my entry is coming soon.

Soaring Hunter 3 mana symbolWhite mana symbolWhite mana symbol
Creature - Bird Mythic Rare
Flying, infect
Prevent all combat damage that would be dealt to Soaring Hunter.
5/5

@Balaam: Thanks, I thought I remembered to put a date of judging, but I suppose I forgot, (but I have fixed it now.). The card linking thing is nice, but I'm just going to show the parts of a card that I want them to change.

You can add a bit of flavour text if you want, but it's not mandatory.

Also, I would appreciate feedback on whether or not this forum game is a good idea, changes I could make, so on.

Great idea for the contest!

Here's my entry:

Whenever Norn's Predator deals combat damage to a player, you may exile target nonland permanent that player controls.

Sorry, I suppose I'm a bit late, but I will judge now.

Nerameshu - Srine's Predator

This is a good card, but I think it's more Rare material than mythic rare.

TheAmazingKamahl - Praetor's Scout

I liked this one, It's really good, It gives all your creatures bonuses, and, like a good Mythic Rare should, It's so expensive that you'll dread having it in your opening hand!

Balaam - Soaring Hunter

So, it's sort of like Guard Gomozoa, but he actually hurts the things that touch him, this will be a tough choice...

16Fudge - Norn's Predator

I like it, I like it, it is very well balanced, good job!

And the winner is...

TheAmazingKamahl!

Pick a cool card for your turn!

Thank you. Next card:
We go to:
Ulamog's Crusher
First of all, why is this card common?
Something to think about.

Ulamog's Annihilator 10 mana symbol
Creature - Eldrazi Mythic Rare
Annihilator 3
Whenever Ulamog's Annihilator attacks, target permanent's controller sacrifices it.
9/9

I actually think that Ulamog, The infinite Ghyre would fit the criteria for this pretty well, but I do think that it's odd that Ulamog's Crusher is a common...

Wed, 2011-05-04 03:13

Sfair, General of Ulamog 12 mana symbol
Legendary Creature - Eldrazi Mythic Rare
Annihilator 4
~ attacks each turn if able.
Whenever @ attacks, colorless creature you control gain +5/+5 until end of turn.
10/10

Ulamog's crusher was put in common for two reasons:

1. Show off Annihilator so that higher rarities with less space for rules text didn't need the reminder text.
2. To encourage attacking with annihilator creatures.

I think that if that card was mythic, it would be Ulamog himself, but anyway:

@Carn13: What if there is a card that says "Target creature can't attack this turn"? Which ability would overpower? Do you mean attacks each turn if able? Because that is different.
:Edit: Oops, time to judge. Here we go!

Spoiler:
Dawnk41
Spoiler:
I like it, but I think that 8/8 would of fit the picture too.

Nerameshu
Spoiler:
Good, but +5/+5 is a giant amount, even for the Eldrazi.

NKoC
Spoiler:
Bliss just isn't Eldrazi. Really. Otherwise, that seems like a nice twist on the original card.

16fudge
Spoiler:
This is good, all except Trample. Trample isn't colorless, sorry.

Sarkhan Vol
Spoiler:
Flavor is great, with the walls. One thing though: The wall ability is too situational.

Carn13
Spoiler:
Wow, this is good, except Annihilator should be able to work on it's own. It doesn't need assistance. But this is broken, as I pointed out, anyways.

So we have 2 finalists:
Spoiler:
Sarkhan Vol, and NKoC.

Winner

While what is done is done, I thought I should argue my case. Bliss' definition:
1. Extreme happiness; ecstasy.
2. The ecstasy of salvation; spiritual joy.
When I made my card, the intention was to make creatures "happy" in anger, thrive for it, blindly attacking each turn. The only way to stop it would be Planeswalker Intervention, who spend mana to stop the Eldrazi's essence.

As for the winner, lets be honest. You are right: Destroying walls IS conditional. And guess what. I could count the walls in stantard on two hands. And trust me, none of them are threatening. As for the creature itself, it is stronger than Ulamog in power and toughness. Flavorwise, Ulamog wouldn't be ruling it if it has a stronger body.

Nothing has to be done, but I thought I should be able to argue my point.

Ok, judging time:

K1l1

Spoiler:
If your opponent has 10 lives or less, you force him to sacrifice creatures to save himself. Pretty nice... or nasty, depends on if you are the one who cast it or not.

Carn13
Spoiler:
The "draw three cards" is too blue, and I would only choose this if I had 3 or less creatures. Also, it costs too much.

TheAmazingKamahl
Spoiler:
Pretty good against a token deck. It's a game-ending, like most mythics.

And the winner is......
