Reactivation Challenge #41 - Hybrid Contest CLOSED

Man, doesn't time fly? Especially when you are supposed to do something important, then forget about it and only realize it months later? I blame my faulty chrono-crux oscillators.

So without further ado, I present to you the 41st Reactivation Challenge!

Original challenge by @Stormtide



- Create a card that uses hybrid mana in some way
- Max 5 entries
- Nothing that would warrant being reported
- Remember, hybrid cards use BOTH aspects of each color that it uses. I suggest checking the color pie to confirm that your entries share a common ground.
- Creative usage of hybrid mana is much appreciated!


I recently had a contest that went really well, so I thought I'd try something else. Make a card that uses hybrid mana in some way. This can be in the mana cost, or in the abilities. Old cards are allowed, but new cards are encouraged. Here are some of Wizards various types of hybrid designs:

Hybrid mana is just such a cool idea, I wanted to get people to make a bunch of designs. In addition, I often see hybrid misused on this site, so I'm hoping this contest might help with that. Remember that hybrid cards must encompass a space shared by both colors. Make sure, whatever you do, you stick to the color pie. Consult MaRo's article if needed. Tertiary mechanics don't tend to be on hybrids, but might if the card is cool enough.

Cards will be more likely to win if they are a cool design, a creative use of hybrid mana, or find a niche space in the color pie of the colors. However, keep this to what Wizards might print. Note: a design that uses multiple types of hybrids isn't likely to win, as those won't be printed since they tend to be confusing, but a very creative use could have a shot, and MIGHT even be more likely to win for the creativity if it's designed well and creatively.

Contest closes on February 14th. Prizes:
1st: Follow and 5 favorites of your choice OR 5 favorites of your choice
2nd: Follow and 1 favorites of your choice OR 3 favorites of your choice
3rd: Follow OR 2 favorites of your choice
Honorable mention: 1 favorite of your choice
