  • For a second I thought this was a repeat from an earlier tournament because of a card I submitted to the "Choose one that hasn't been chosen" (Not an entry)

    The name for the card comes from this thread. I figured I'd use as a shout out. http://forums.mtgcardsmith.com/discussion/3476/fronteria-the-wild-west-world#latest

    My second and final entry for this contest.

    A mana rock that copies the named spell, but can only be for mana for used toward casting said spell. I figure cards like nevermore prevent you from casting a spell. This just makes it so opponents probably won't want to give you free copies of said spell. If their hands are tied, they just might or in a group game someone might say screw it, and let you go wild heh.

    I think this the earliest name a card spell in the game.

    Back when Enchant world was a thing heh. Concordant Crossroads and this were only ones I think I ever played, such an underused mechanic that never went anywhere. Ultimately it's much better younger sibling showed up.

    These are real cards, not entries. Thought might serve as inspiration and a shameless bump since I did my two.

  • Enchant World was a lot of work for a little payoff. Kind of like Tribal cards. Still, I played in the days of Enchant Worlds, and I miss them.
  • This contest ends around this time tomorrow.
  • This contest is now closed for judging.

  • @Lastjustice - I know that artist, I've wanted to create a kithkin card from that piece for a while now. Haha!

    I just thought people should post something to show it's done, as a trademark thing hehe. They know it's really done then. That said, there's alot of fun Poppy Art if you want make a bunch of hammer wielding Kithkins as I looked thru a bunch of hammer cards to find one I liked.
  • *dies from suspense and turns into one of King @TenebrisNemo 's undead minions.
  • @Lastjustice - I will judge this one out when I have time. Right now the tournament has kept me busy in this site.
  • It's cool man, life happens, I just remind people stuff ...or am really pesky, take your pick.
  • Judging Results

    When an unfinished contest constantly haunts your mind, I think it's high time to judge it out. Seven entries isn't much, but still enough to determine three winners. And these cards weren't bad at all!
