  • What are mystery boxes? I'm pretty new but I love MTG and so far, this is awesome, but I am really confused about these Mystery Box thingies.
  • @Cybermarb welcome to the forums! @jpastor came up with this contest. Its a twist on ongoing contests basically but are real fun and can be challenging. So if your looking for material to help you get started in your cardsmithing career mystery box challenge is a great place to start and by being on the forums it can help get you more recognition and possible helpful advise from other cardsmiths then not being active on the forums.
  • @jpastor made my diamond artifact, hopefully an artifact creature counts!

    The power/toughness was corrected but not updated at the moment of this typing. Also, I would like another box please!

    Hi mystery boxers, a quick announcement:
    - I am flying home today and will soon have access to my computer. I will then go through every entry this week and double check to make sure I didnt forget any prizes, requests, etc. Cheers!



    @JoeMoose Your mystery box contains:
    - A Discussion Endorsement: If you have any active discussions, choose one. I will mention it in several posts across all my discussions until the end of the next deadline.
    - A Mystery Challenge: Create a rare, red creature that mentions "artifacts" in the text.

    @sorinjace Your mystery box contains:
    - A Tactical Nuke: Destroy all entries submitted this deadline. The following players are in posession of a prize that can prevent this bomb from exploding. . . Players with diffuse codes: @Battlesocke; @Lujikul; players with A Shard of an Unknown Object: @Baron-777. The timer is ticking: you have until roughly 1600 CDT to diffuse the bomb before it destroys every entry submitted this deadline.
    - A Mystery Challenge: Create a card that you can cycle.

    @Shadow29870 Your mystery box contains:
    - A Mystery Challenge: Create a blue (X) spell.

    @Cybermarb Hi buddy, if you can find this mention of your name amongst this lengthy paragraph of formatting then you on your way to becoming a good cardsmith. @sorinjace said it well. Forums are a great way to learn to create cards better or to participate in fun challenges regardless of skill. My mystery box challenges are for all skill levels and I have attempted to format them in a way that is beginner friendly. Forums are full of coding and formatting, so I try to keep these simple. If you wish to get started in forums by participating in my Mystery Box Challenges, all you need to do is post on here "I'd like to open a box!" or anything along those lines. I will then give you a challenge like the ones above and below this paragraph and possibly a prize. You have no time commitment to submit the card. So take your time or bust it off and ask for another box. Lastly, you can request a box at any point in time. This discussion is ongoing, which means I dont plan on ending it. Cheers!

    @Queen-Succubus Your mystery box contains:
    - An Extra Entry: You may submit two cards for this box's mystery challenge.
    - A Mystery Challenge: In magic, white has been known to harness the power of the sun to deal damage and heal. Create a monowhite spell that does this.
  • I will use my diffuse code.

    @jpastor I would like to open a mystery box please! It's been awhile since I've been around these forums, and this sounds like a fun way to get back into making cards.

    @JoeMoose Your mystery box contains:
    - Double prize choices for everyone this deadline!
    - A Mystery Challenge: Create the legendary planeswalker version of the above card.

    @Shadow29870 Your mystery box contains:
    - A Mystery Challenge: Create a Hellkite creature.

    @cadstar369 Your mystery box contains:
    - Choose one of the following two prizes--
    - Steal a card:
    You pick another player's submitted card from this deadline. That card becomes one of your entries. If it wins this deadline, you win instead of its creator.
    - A Bomb: Destroy target entry. It won't be judged this deadline.
    - A Mystery Challenge: Create a card with artwork depicting a battle or fight of any kind.
  • Honestly with so few entries I'm gonna just let the bomb hit. Just no one submit anything for an hour or 2.
  • @jpastor

    One more can't hurt eh? Hit me up again please.

    Also, a side note... I did notice the 'bomb' and 'Steal a Card' abilities and... well, those are cool, but they seem a little... mean, to me. All that effort someone may have put, shut down.

    @jpastor completed the Sun Challenge, and made two of them with my bonus perk. Was tough, wasn't sure what you meant by dealing and gaining life because drain is usually a black thing. Came to my own conclusions with the cards I made though one with the literal effect of damage+lifegain and one with a more direct Sun approach of it arising and good things happening. Pretty simple but I think I did the theme justice.

    Fun stuff, the power level concerning rarity, mana cost is definitely askew, but hey not the worst. Also, another box would be great.

    Not really my best work I admit; art was hard to find for myrs. Sometimes you don't always end up making lemonade outta lemons.

    Regardless I have not lost my love of this thread or its boxes. So i'll take another @jpastor.

    I had to curse a bit at the challenge, @jpastor, seeing that @Scott_Anderson's card had two characters in the artwork. I flipped a coin, and I got the lady. So!

    Hope this works! Another box, please. :3

    Edit: OMG! This is the 100th card I made! [has balloons and confetti rain down]
