Heya! ManaChrome here! I know I haven't been making cards recently, but I will be getting into card making as the days go on for summer break! Yay! I have recently gotten into playing cards instead of making cards: drafting, commander, modern, standard; you name it! I recently got into a bit of a deck building addiction phase XD
And to kick off this return, I want to make a contest to not only test your card making skills, but to also further progress my deck building skills!
Here is how this is going to work, any of the cards that will be featured during this contest WILL have their own commander deck tailor made for the card made by me!
So what's the contest about? Here's how this is going to go down: Pick a name being quoted in a flavor text from a printed MTG card (For example, you may pick the name "Kordel the Cryptic" because he appears in the MTG cards Conjurer's Closet and Overworld Atlas). Then, make a legendary creature based off of that card's name!
Rules for the contest:
1.) The card MUST be playable as a commander.
2.) The card MUST not have been made before 3/27/2018.
3.) The card MUST not be colorless.
4.) Each cardsmith can make up to three cards for the contest, but only one of those cards will count towards placing for the contest.
5.) Please, no joke cards. I am aware that in the past that MTG used to quote lines from plays and books of REAL WORLD authors for flavor text. I advise you guys to avoid those if you are hoping to place.
6.) If the person being quoted in the flavor text already has their own printed MTG card (for example, Pia Nalaar in Ornithopter), you may not use that name for your own cards.
1st Place: 6 favorites of cards of your choice and a follow!
2nd Place: 5 favorites of cards of your choice and a follow!
3rd Place: 4 favorites of cards of your choice!
Honorable Mentions: 2 favorites of cards of your choice!
And all the cards that placed and/or got an honorable mention WILL have a commander deck tailor-made for that card made by me!
I will be judging the cards by art, how the card relates to the quotes that were found in the flavor text, mechanics and how they translate to the flavor of the card, balance, how playable they are as a commander, and overall fun factor!
You can suggest any custom cards made by you or another cardsmith that can be used for the commander deck of the legend that you made! Or just suggest to me any custom cards that can be used for commander for the decks I'll make!
Good luck to you all! Contest ends on 4/1/2018! Happy cardsmithing to you all!
