  • @FireOfGolden we’re currently in the middle of a collaborative story event, so Mystery Boxes are coming one at a time for a little while.
  • Wait does that mean I might story make 3 or 4 times @cadstar369?
  • @DrakeGladis potentially yes, but there’s 4 people in the rotation at the moment, so given that each entry must directly succeed the previous, you’ll probably only get one more box before the deadline arrives and the event ends.
  • Mystery Challenge: Create any card and continue the story with 1-2 sentences.
    Twilight Blessing

    In the village's crumbling church, an elderly priest speaks blessings over the hunters and their weapons, one of the final preparations before the hunt begins in earnest...

    What was the Legacy Prize you chose?
    Your mystery box contains:

    Your mystery box contains:
    • Prize 61 - Art Thou Great: Activate this draft anytime and everyone in the mystery box queue will draft from a list of artworks for their mystery challenge.

    • Prize 6 - The Gold Plate: This deadline's winning card will be featured. [Activate before a deadline finishes.]
    • A Mystery Challenge: Create a flavorful Serpent creature card.
  • @jpastor When do you expect my box to become available? I'm getting slightly jealous of the people who are getting boxes while I'm waiting.

    I thought the wait was because only one person could continue the story, but that doesn't make sense with two boxes coming in at once...
  • edited September 22
    @stijnhommes your box above has the current story continuation challenge. I presume DrakeGladis and I received boxes to retain engagement while you and FireofGolden take a turn at the story.
  • Sorry! I totally missed that part of the post. I guess I need more sleep. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

    Night of the Hunt


    Once the blessings were completed, the villages took their weapons and their torches and headed into the forest, ready to track down the ghoulish, undead creatures that had invaded their home.

    @jpastor:
    You asked: "@stijnhommes What was the Legacy Prize you chose?"

    After I won the Legacy Negotation prize, I decided on the option of mood rings mode instead of a tournament raincheck and later selected the Dinner Role that led to the current story sidequest. 

    I'm not sure what else there is for me to choose. Have I overlooked yet another post?
    I'll hold off on asking for another box until we've got this thing sorted out.

    Inventory:
    Prize 3 - Glyph of Hileandr (Reroll): Cash this in any time to replace one of your mystery challenges with a new one.
    Prize 82 - Freaky Friday: You and target mystery boxer may trade any unused prizes and incomplete mystery challenges with one another.
    Premium Prize 8 - Wonderbar: Swap a prize in your inventory with a newly created prize of your choice. (You create the prize, but it must first be approved by me.)
    Premium Prize 86 - All-in Bundle: You will get X prizes of choice, where X is the number of deadline points you earn this deadline.
    Prize 87 - Silver Key: Guarantees a new discovery in the box it's used to open.
    Prize 77 - Legacy Negotiation Prize: Chosen Mood Rings - Dinner Role

  • @stijnhommes
    OH!!! My bad

    This is yet another community-driven event with all box requesters in the loop. We will start it after the Snake modifier ends. Just remind me if I forget. I tend to do that sometimes.
  • All right! I just hope my vacation won't interfere with "my" event. I won't have access to enough electronics, artwork or time to keep making cards during my vacation.

    Please give me a box when there is space in the story. (My vacation will begin in October)
  • @stijnhommes
    we can activate it any time you'd like

    Beyond Death {x} - You may cast it for its Beyond Death from your graveyard.

    My thoughts on the winning cards:

    @The_333_
    I feel like that should be black mana for the casting cost. The blue version of this, as a common, would be something like an instant speed, "Create a 1/1 colorless Eldrazi Scion creature token. Creatures your opponents control get -X/-0 until end of turn, where X is the number of colorless creatures you control."

    This idea though of a tradeoff for you opponent to get tokens in exchange for sacrificing creatures, let alone tokens that provide mana.. i like this idea and rewarded you 1st place for the thought.

    @cadstar369
    Another solid card. It's unique to see an Angel without flying. I like to see a monowhite lifegain creature that uses non lifelink mechanics. This is an interesting card, but it is a very useful mechanic for white, since card draw is uncommon. Nonetheless, good enough for 2nd place!

    @stijnhommes
    I'm confused on the color identity of this card, but let me explain why I like it. I like the flavor of the mob in the forest on the hunt for something. In this case, they're after zombies, I think, which is such a clever and unique concept. I haven't seen a lot of anti-zombie apocalypse flavor in custom cards, but if you think about it, it makes sense. Good idea. 3rd place.
  • September Mystery Box Featured Card Winner

    @cadstar369 gets to choose who this month!

  • Whoa! To what do I owe this honor @jpastor?
  • You're my most active Prestige, and I can't decide this month!
  • edited September 26

    @jpastor have a Naya Beast.  Top of the curve, limited bombshell, probably not great in standard since it costs 2 mana to kill unless you have a +1/+1 counter on it, which is easy but might cost another 1 or 2 mana.  

    Now, for another bocks!

    .... also do I have to keep track of my prizes?  If I do I'm probably never using them since I'll forget.  Or i'll use them immediately.  If I don't, do I just ping you and ask for them?

  • @DrakeGladis I don't keep track. If you wish to save them for later, keep track..otherwise just use em if ya want right away
  • Prize 84 - The Ancients: A full set dedicated to gods/deities. When activated, cardsmiths will, for the remainder of the deadline, choose one god/deity and create a mini-set for that being. No mystery boxes the remainder of the deadline for everyone that participates. Just 50/50 shots at prizes for each entry.

    Prize 61 - Art Thou Great: Activate this draft anytime and everyone in the mystery box queue will draft from a list of artworks for their mystery challenge. 

    And counting!

  • @jpastor Until new contest starts, hit me one.
  • @FireOfGolden
