    Another example made by me.
    ^I'm not sure about the wording though. Should this say "that player's next turn." instead of "your next turn."?
  • @Tomigon
    Yes, it should say the "that player". Will be posting our first entry momentarily!
  • @modnation675
    Thanks! I'll fix my example card.

    Did you submit a card? I can't see the image and I can't click it neither.
  • Example card updated
  • I'll fix it shortly then.
  • @Tomigon
    Does this link work for you?
  • @modnation675
    Yes, it works now. Thanks!
  • @modnation675
    Are you going to make another card named "In the Valley of the Damned", or is that a mistake?
  • edited March 2018
    Oops, will fix shortly.

    Edit: Fixed, I'm not used to MSE.

    I also created this for an example card in my contest Out Of This World in case you would like to swing by there, @Tomigon!

    Thanks for the bump and entries!

    @everyone how about these ideas...
    "Choose one that hasn't been chosen at random-"
    "Choose a card type that hasn't been chosen."
    "Choose a color that hasn't been chosen."

    You can change the text as long as it says you choose something that hasn't been chosen.
  • I'll take you up on that offer @Tomigon

    I'm having a very hard time working out how to balance this. Feedback appreciated:

    I would have had the wording be "At the beginning of your upkeep, put an age counter on Blisstronator, then choose one that hasn't been chosen this turn for each age counter on Blisstronator," but that was unnecessarily wordy and the card already works with this wording. Does this work for you @Tomigon?

    Also, Tom Thordarson is a great artist.

    Woohoooo!!! Thanks for your entries everyone!

    That's an interesting card. but sorry,,it doesn't fit the criteria.
    You mentioned "'that hasn't been chosen this turn' is unnecessarily wordy and the card already works with this wording. "
    "this turn" is unnecessarily. If you see cards like Cryptic Command, Mystic Confluence, we can know that we can't choose the same mode more than once unless it says "You may choose the same mode more than once."
    But you need to add "that hasn't been chosen" to that card if you want to make it valid for this contest. The card is not the same with that text. If you put one age counter on it and choose the 1st mode, in the next turn, you can't choose the 1st mode.

    I like the card, but sorry, it doesn't count in this contest!

    If you choose a creature in your graveyard and return it to the battlefield and then that creature or the creature with the same name is put into a graveyard, you can choose that creature again. It's counted as a new card that hasn't been chosen. If it said "choose a creature card name that hasn't been chosen", I think it's close to your idea, but I don't know how to add "at random". If it said "choose a creature card name at random", it choses a card from all MtG creature cards. lol
