And it's only worht 30 cents.
because it sucks that's why. People on the internet hype stupid things all the time, storm crow is just an addition to the stupid things that are hyped.
Oh, ok. Thanks a lot.
No prob, I didn't understand at first either xD
I had made this card a while ago because I never really liked the artwork for it.

Here is what one person said about Storm Crow on Gatherer
My only regret is I can only have 4 of this in every deck... Along with 4 Dovescapes, just to do dear Storm Crow proud *wipes tears*
Things you can do with Storm Crow:
-Win on turn 23 by itself. I know right. Crazy stuff. Imagine that with extra turn effects.. broken as hell.
-Pitch it to Force of Will. I mean how many cards can you do that with?
-Fly over Phyrexian Obliterator, Progenitus and Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre. So you can't even stop that 23 turn clock. That's power creep for you.
-Kill 1/1 soldier tokens all day. Yes I'll kill that one.. and this one and that one.
-Make it indestructible with Darksteel Plate. That's why it's banned in Commander.
-Give it infect with Phyresis and win in TEN turns. Oh my god.
-Give it protection from black with the swords and it's immune to Doom Blade! or red and it's immune to Bolt!
Here's my entry -

, I believe the contest clearly states that the card must be "new". I'm assuming that means you must have made it after this contest started.
I believe it said "new art" meaning you just had to make an already existing card with different art.

, it says you need to remake it "using new art", but it
The card must be new
." - and I interpret that last one to mean newly made (for the contest). I could be wrong.
, please clarify.
, I meant to make a new entry for this contest.
ok then mine is invalid. sorry for the confusion.
One of my favorite cards: Birds of Paradise! (
As a note, there have been 15 different printings of this card; there have only ever been 3 different pieces of artwork for it.....
This is a remake of one from before I had an account. Sara Palin just endorsed Donald Trump. Need I say more?
Storm Crow jokes first emerged with Alliances, because you could pitch Storm Crow to Force of Will. The joke began as a reaction to the over-the-top blue hype of the day -- between Force and Diminishing Returns, many people said that Alliances had given Blue all the best cards. There was some serious-sounding hyperventilative discussion of whether it would ever be sane to play any other color. "Alliances broke blue" is the sort of thing people would say, as well as "Force of Will makes any random blue card better than every other card in the game." Stuff like that.
In response to that, people would jokingly assert that Storm Crow must be the most broken card ever, because it was blue and printed in Alliances. This made all the more sense because of the flavor text
[note: "It tells you that the worst is coming. Do you listen? —Lovisa Coldeyes, Balduvian Chieftain is the original flavor text]
(you can read "the worst" as "the worst card ever" literally or as "the most devastating card ever" playfully).
Most players who make Storm Crow jokes nowadays aren't aware of the history of this tradition, but hey, it's great fun to see people get so much amusement out of such a mediocre card. And I like the jokes about the new reprint flavor text better anyhow. Storm Crow returning, we'd best get to burning!
The flavor text is from a trailer I made. This is my friend doing what someone thought was the "Coin Flip Face". So I made a trailer out of it. Sorry I don't have it on me, as it was on a school computer.
, Birds of Paradise has 4 arts : Alpha , 7th , Ravnica , M11 Buy-a-Box Promo.
Actually, more. It's in 10th edition, 2010 Core, 2011 Core, 2012 Core, and the original Ravnica.
Wait, that's a real thing?!

? what is the Fourth? Where can I find it? Is it better than the others (please let it be better than the others)?
It has been printed more times but it only has new art in Alpha , 7th Edition , Ravnica , and the M11 Buy-a-Box Promo versions.
