As my username perhaps suggests, my favourite creature type is zombies. I have a (moderately) powerful casual zombie deck which, thanks to core 2019, got some sweet new additions.
There are still some missing pieces though. That's why I created this competition! The requirements are demanding, so prepare yourselves.
You need to create a Zombie creature card. It must be Dimir (blue/black) colours and be powerful without being broken. It must also solve one of my following problems. It can solve more than one, but you won't get bonus points for solving more than one. If you can solve all of them in a single card I will be impressed, but you still won't get bonus points.
Problem one: I need another powerful and aggressive two drop to go alongside my Graveyard Marshals.
Problem two: I need a way of protecting my powerful zombies and my lords from removal.
Problem three: I need an (in colour) way of dealing with pesky enchantments, even if it is only temporarily.
Problem four: I need a way of generating a lot of black mana in one turn to cast a kicked Josu Vess.
Problem five: I need a way of getting a lot of cards in my graveyard quickly so I can start casting my Dread Wanderers and other similar creatures from the 'yard.
As I mentioned above this has to be a zombie CREATURE. Why? Because I want to maximise the power of my lords, so as many of the cards in my deck as possible have to be able to benefit from them. The one exception that I will permit is an instant or sorcery that also creates zombie tokens.
As if that wasn't hard enough, the card must be flavourful. What's the point of playing a zombie deck if they don't feel like zombies?
Each entrant may submit up to five cards, potentially solving each problem with one of their cards (though you can make multiple entries for the same problem). The competition closes on August the twelfth. Prizes are as follows:
1st place: 5 favourites of your choice, a follow and a spot in the hall of fame!
2nd place: 4 favourites of your choice and a spot in the hall of fame!
3rd place: 3 favourites of your choice.
All cards I like (which will likely be all of them) will be favourited and these favourites don't count towards your prizes.
Good luck! Make me some amazing zombies!
