So for this challenge I want players to create a Legendary creature that cares about the cost or number of things you control designed with commander/EDH in mind. What thing effects the creature and how is up to you. It needs be multicolored in it's identity, 2-4 colors. Not looking for 5 colored, as I want to be about something those colors care about. It can be monocolored in it's cost, but then needs have an ability that is in another color in it's rules text. A card's color identity is its color plus the color of any mana symbols in the card's rules text. I recommend 2-3 colors, as it's easier for the card zero in on what those colors are about, but if you can find a strong theme for 4, then that's ok. Hybrid mana is acceptable, but color breaks still apply, as you need pick abilities that both colors have access to, as you need treat as if it's solely one of those colors.
As another way I will accept a mono colored creature, is if you put Parter With on it, and have another creature partered with it. Each count as still 2 entries, but they will counter toward each others identity. Be sure post them together. Like this two cards. http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=445978
Again they still need make sense together and count something that they interact with.
I did a recent batch of cards that do what I am talking about... Here's my examples.
The really simple answer, the card just needs you count something and be effected by that number or numbers, hence the title. If your cards does that, then it's probably okay.If you look at my examples...
- Aurina Songspire and Taya, Angelic Warden both care about enchantments are effected by how many you have.
-Gan Cean, Doomed Rider, Cares about how many cards you have, and has abilities to help you draw more cards.
-Erim, Mistress of Darkness, cares about instants and sorcery spells you cast, and gets power based off their casting cost. She helps get them back from the graveyard to keep you casting.
-Skulis, Ravager of Worlds, Wants you to put more mana in your mana pool. He gets more power based off the amount stored. He likely will have high power and trample over creatures causing opponents to sac permanents.
-Fyndra, Collector of Ships, She wants you get have more vehicles. She helps crew them, and turns thems into artifact creatures with mana.
So again figure out whatever you want your creature be about, and have it effect it in some way based off those numbers. It's a pretty open ended thing. -Rules breakdown-
- Creature must be Legendary and have 2-4 colors in it's identity. Not five colored.
- Card must card about the number of something and interact with it in some way that fits those colors.
- Up to 10 entries old or new, long as it fits the other requirements it's creation date is not important to me.
- Reasonably powered.
- Keep the text off the walls of the card. This is completely avoidable.
- Custom or existing mechanics are completely fine, just include the reminder text somewhere if it's not on the card.
- Ends on the 25th ..ish.
-Prizes will be favorites top 5, and hall of fame for top 3. Additional favorites for honorable mentions and subthemes.
Any questions let me know. If you feel your card fits the spirit of this contest, go ahead and try entering it, as I will let you know. I am flexible enough on these things. -Lastjustice
