A while back I made a card called Rakdos Aristocrat. The idea was to make a 10 card set of Aristocrats based on the Ravnica Block Guilds. I was never truly happy with the cards I made for this, and I was waiting for the moment when inspiration would strike, and then I realized that this would make for a great challenge!
We just completed the third challenge for the Simic Aristocrat.http://forums.mtgcardsmith.com/discussion/213/simic-aristocrat
So here it is... The fourth of 10 challenges (As long as you all like it and it continues to be popular)
The guildelines are as follows...
1. CMC of 5, 4 or 3.
2. Must have at least one white and one blue mana in the casting cost.
3. Should be Uncommon or Rare.
4. Should fit the feel of Azorius.
5. Subtype should include "Advisor"
6. I would prefer the name of the card be Azorius Aristocrat, but that's not required.
The judging will be comprised of Comments made on the cards by other cardsmiths as well as favorites on the cards, and I will also take into consideration your thoughts as well. Any ties will be broken by myself, or a vote.
The reward for this challenge shall be a TROPHY and a custom card of choice! The top three cards will be announced.
The contest ends on May 15th
Here is a recent sample I madehttp://mtgcardsmith.com/view/azorius-aristocrat-3?list=user#.VUzjbJVFCP8
