Let me share alittle story for you all......."Years ago a smith created an amazing contest, then another and another. Each new contest more amazing than the last. Eventually someone made what many deemed, the greatest contest OF ALL TIME!! Countless Entries were made, so it would take months to judge... or so it seemed. The community patiently waited for an answer that would never come as it's creator vanished mysteriously without a trace from the pages of history. It was then that Tomigon joined forced with Corwinnnn and they formed the cardwatch. The merry Band of Misfits vowed never again would this happen, and thus the Reactivation Challenge was born! "
I got selected due to a loophole or a dare something to host the next Reactivation Challenge.(and boy are they paying for it, as am I.) I knew whatever it was I needed a contest that wasn't currently happening or too close to something happening to not step on the toes of other contests. (Granted probably going allow some crossover still.)
It needed to be a contest I easily made the max number of entries for myself. (No, I not rebooting Mechanix 29 where I made 12 entries.)
So I thought I will pick Mirrored Pairs that @TezzeretofCarmot21
Original contest: http://forums.mtgcardsmith.com/discussion/3562/mirrored-pairs-circuit-challenge/p1
So the rules from the original with some minor tweaks.... (I highlighted the important stuff)
a) Two cards that are functionally identical except the colors are reversed. Ex. Red Elemental Blast / Blue Elemental Blast. White Knight / Black Knight.
b) Two cards that have the same mana costs but opposite abilities. Ex. Chief of the Edge / Chief of the Scale. Veteran Swordsmith / Veteran Armorsmith.
Guidelines for this contest:1. ten mirrored pairs per user incase anyone wants to do a cycle of some sort. (Twenty cards total.)
2. WORD YOUR CARDS PROPERLY. If you're not sure how to word your cards, find a card close to the card you want to make on Gatherer.
3. For type a mirrored pairs, they should be in different colors, preferably enemy colors but anything goes. For type b, they should be in exactly the same colors.
4. Keep the art and names appropriate. I'd prefer not to be existing Magic card art.
5. I will automatically disqualify any card that I deem has inappropriate art, names, or flavor text, or terrible wording.(I am pretty lax judge but it's there.)6. Cards made after May 20th are allowed.
All card types are allowed! Long it's a pairing that makes sense and fits. 7. The deadline is June 15th though could be extended if requested. *Special additional rule*
In the event you make Planeswalker or creatures, I will strongly encourage you to use the new partner mechanic from Battlebond for those creatures.You can leave off the reminder text if you are need space, unless you change the way it functions.
You can tweak the idea to your liking, but needs stay with in the concept. This not required, but I'd like to see it used. if you can come up with a way use it for Noncreature spells that makes sense, more power to you. I encourage people take risks since you got a couple entries to make. I want to give you room to show me what you got. I don't however expect you to have art that connects, but if you can do that sort of thing, that's just gravy.You can leave off the reminder text if you are need space, unless you change the way it functions.
