As most you you already know, we've recently got a surprise batch of early spoilers for the next set "Theros: Beyond Death".
Now, without getting into spoilers territory, we've seen enough mechanics through the six packs that were leaked that we can probably assume we've seen them all. I have to say, I'm a bit disappointed by the lack of novelty from these mechanics. There are certainly a lot of interesting enchantments in this set (I really like the Omens cycle, etc.), but the enchantments-centric mechanics seem very tame.
So this is the challenge I'm offering: let's make some more interesting mechanics around the enchantment type!Here are the rules:
• Each card must showcase a new keyworded mechanic that revolves around enchantments
that you invented. It can be any kind of mechanic (keyword ability, ability word, new card type, tokens, batching, action keyword, etc.) as long as it cares about enchantments or is a new kind of enchantment itself.
• You can make your card as if they were part of any black-border product
, not just Theros or even a standard set. So feel free to use any other mechanic and flavour you need to make your new mechanic shine.
• Each participant gets up to five entries
(one card is one entry, only the five last entries will be taken into consideration for judging, unless you clearly specify what are your entries). You're free to mix and match your entries any way you'd like so you could make a full set of five cards developing a single mechanic, or maybe just two cards but with a different mechanic on each, etc.
• Old cards are allowed
as long as they fit the other rules of the challenge.
• The deadline is Sunday, November 17th
which means this will be a quick 2-weeks challenge.
• As for the rewards
— FIRST PLACE: 5 favourites of their choice
— SECOND PLACE: 3 favourites of their choice
— THIRD PLACE: 1 favourite of their choice
Try to be original! Channel that sense of wonder that you experienced when you first discovered novel mechanics like Bestow, Sagas or Enchantment-Creatures for the first time and show everyone how you would push enchantments in a new direction =D
Good luck everyone, let the challenge begin!
