So, as I'm sure you're all aware, Magic: The Gathering is a vast, hugely diverse game, which has continued to impress and amaze players for over twenty six years. There are countless mechanical concepts and ideas floating around in this wonderful TCG - along with over 15,604 individual cards. As well as 238 creature types.
And that's what this challenge is going to be about - creating a card of every creature type. After one creature type has been claimed, that creature type will be crossed of this list, and you will only be allowed to submit cards with other creature types. Of course, this challenge will start off very easy, and then get harder and harder as your design options get increasingly limited.
And now for the...
1. Any number of entries - however, only new cards are allowed.
2. You are allowed to have more than one creature type on your card, even if one has already been claimed - however, each card requires one unclaimed creature type so far.
3. Tribal cards are allowed - a tribal wurm enchantment is fine, for example.
4. No/minimal off topic chat, please.
5. This contest will either end (1), when all creature types have been claimed, or, since this isn't very likely to happen soon, (2) in a month or so.
Prizes are as follows:
First place: five favourites and a follow, all rom an alt account. You will also havw a card made around your cardsmith personality by yours truly.
Second place: three favourites and a follow, all from an alt account.
Third place: one favourite and a follow, both from an alt account.
Now, what are these creature types, you ask, of course? Well, *takes deep breath*, they are:
Aetherborn, Antelope, Archer, Artificer, Assassin, Assembly-Worker, Aurochs, Avatar, Azra, Badger, Basilisk, Bat, Bear, Beeble, Berserker, Blinkmoth, Bringer, Brushwagg, Camarid, Camel, Caribou, Carrier, Cat, Centaur, Cephalid, Chimera, Citizen, Cleric, Cockatrice, Construct, Coward, Crab, Cyclops, Dauthi, Deserter, Djinn, Dragon, Drake, Dreadnought, Drone, Druid, Dryad, Efreet, Egg, Eldrazi, Elephant, Elk, Eye, Ferret, Fish, Flagbearer, Fox, Frog, Fungus, Gargoyle, Germ, Goat, Goblin, God, Golem, Gorgon, Graveborn, Gremlin, Griffin, Harpy, Hellion, Hippo, Hippogriff, Homarid, Homunculus, Hound, Illusion, Imp, Incarnation, Jackal, Jellyfish, Juggernaut, Kavu, Kirin, Kithkin, Kobold, Kor, Kraken, Lamia, Lammasu, Leech, Leviathan, Lhurgoyf, Masticore, Mercenary, Merfolk, Metathran, Mole, Monger, Mongoose, Monkey, Moonfolk, Mutant, Myr, Mystic, Naga, Nautilus, Nephilim, Nightstalker, Noggle, Nomad, Octopus, Ogre, Orb, Orc, Orgg, Ouphe, Ox, Oyster, Pangolin, Pegasus, Pentavite, Pest, Phelddagrif, Phoenix, Pincher, Pirate, Plant, Praetor, Prism, Processor, Rabbit, Rat, Reflection, Rhino, Rigger, Sable, Samurai, Sand, Saproling, Satyr, Scarecrow, Scion, Scorpion, Scout, Serf, Serpent, Servo, Shade, Sheep, Slith, Slug, Snake, Spawn, Specter, Spider, Spike, Spirit, Splinter, Squirrel, Starfish, Surrakar, Survivor, Tetravite, Thalakos, Thopter, Thrull, Trilobite, Triskelavite, Unicorn, Viashino, Volver, Wall, Weird, Whale, Wizard, Wolverine, Wombat, Worm, Wurm, Yeti, Zombie, and Zubera.
