Sweep, Channel, and Epic from Kamigawa.
Megamorph from Tarkir.
Haunt, Hellbent, and Radiance from OG Ravnica.
Horsemanship from P3K.
Infect and Phyrexian mana from New Phyrexia.
Rampage from Legends.
Substance (which was never seen on an actual card!) from Mirage.
Landhome, Banding, Bands with other, and tons more.
What do these mechanics all have in common? In my experience, they are some of the generally worst received mechanics ever.
(This is just an overall thing I've noticed online and in my community. Individual opinions may differ. For instance, I know a guy who swears by his Megamorph deck, but the overall reception of that mechanic is negative.)
Anyway, "what's the point of all this, ToC21?" you may ask.
I want you to make up to 5 cards for the Generally Unpopular Mechanics Challenge, or GUMC - each with only one of these mechanics, but none with overlapping mechanics.
For example, you can make Sweep, Mountainhome, Megamorph, Haunt, and Radiance, but you cannot make 2 Radiance and 3 Banding. And you CANNOT make a card with Horsemanship and Megamorph.
New cards only, please.
The GUMC ends on May 22nd, a week from today.
First prize - 7 favorites and *maybe* a follow if I like your cards a whole lot. I'm not big on favorites and follows but I will do it.
Second prize - 5 favorites.
Third prize - 3 favorites.
Anyway, time to get smithing! Hope you enjoy the GUMC. (I give extra points for Sweep cards that are actually half-decent.)
