Hello, fellow Cardsmiths!
The Ixalan block saw the return of the Dinosaur creature type. Since then, they have appeared several times, especially in Ikoria. Recently, that got me thinking. So here we are: a contest dedicated to creating dinosaurs and a dinosaur-themed park!
The challenge is, of course, based around dinosaurs, but that doesn’t mean they will be the focus for all of the contest. There will be several stages to the contest, with prompts ranging from dinosaurs to the park to human(oid) trainers.
At the end of each stage, I will award points to the participants and post the rankings for everyone to see. 3 extra points will go to the #1 cardsmith of the stage, 2 extra points to the #2 smith, and 1 extra point for the #3 smith. Each bonus challenge smiths complete also count for 1 point each.
At the end of the contest, the top three cardsmiths will get the following rewards:
1st place: 6 favorites on cards of their choice, a follow, and feedback on up to 3 cards from the contest of their choice.
2nd place: 4 favorites on cards of their choice, a follow, and feedback on up to 2 cards from the contest of their choice.
3rd place: 2 favorites on cards of their choice, a follow, and feedback on up to 1 card from the contest of their choice.
If I’m already following your account and you’re in the top three, I will instead favorite an additional 3 cards of your choice.
I’d prefer new cards for the contest. Otherwise, up to two old cards for each stage.
I’d prefer Cardsmith cards. You don’t have to enter the cards at the same time, though, so you can think about them for a bit.
Please post an image of the card(s) you’re submitting, with either the link to it embedded in the image(s) or below the image(s).
Edits are allowed, but only until I start judging the stage.
Only one Elder Dinosaur per cardsmith. Not everything can be an awe-inspiring ancient reptile, after all. Sorry to people who wanted to make a lot of Elder Dinosaurs.
Best of luck to you all, hope you enjoy, and Stage One will be posted shortly.
(A note: I’m using the term “dinosaur” somewhat loosely here, so pterosaurs, aquatic things like ichthyosaurs, and dinosaur-esque creatures such as Yidaro and the Tarrasque are acceptable as dinosaurs.)
