Sorry my health took a sharp turn. Couldn't stay upright most of last week.

AzureShade *

Knight Otu *

Dudibus *

Q is 564453 **

YingLung **

Confused ***


Gratz Confused. Totally worth cotw nomination :D.


Mirage
I think the criteria last round had good intention but turned out ****. Sorry guys. This round will be interesting (at least in my head). But it's another pretty-open-ended-and-I-have-no-idea-how-it-would-turn-out criteria.

Scrolling through the card list. I think the suite of tutor is quite innovative (borderline broken imo). But one thing definitely caught my eyes was the price tag of Lion's eye diamond. holy moly. Not sure if it was already abused back then but I remembered seeing that card and in my head going "uhh.... duds...". What is cool about the card at the time though is that Magic was only 4 years old and it was already doing "throw-backs". I want to say LED is the start of its kind? but don't quote me on that lol. Till this day, every time i see a throw-back card, I get a tiny rush in my heart.



Criteria
Design a throw back card or a card with nostalgic elements. A remake of a past iconic/unique card but not something they do in every or every other set.

Examples:
:thumbsup:: Ramunap Excavator, pain seer
:thumbsdown:: extra turns, wrath's

Recover - Exile a nonartifact creature card from your graveyard.

Search your library for a card, then shuffle your library and put that card on top. You lose 2 life.

Also, why is the blue sun called Eye of Doom and the black sun called Ingle?

weird i kept running into cards I am not sure how to judge this round... (just a small reminder, if you want to do well in my contest, elegance is something i always look for)

Yarium *

Knight Otu *

AzureShade *

YingLung **

EpicLevelCommoner **

Confused **

Tekkahedron **

arathinius ***

Q is 564453 ***




Gratz Q is 564453. You read my mind that round. :D


Vision
This round will be "easy". According to wiki, Vision introduced ETB trigger. (I would think the mechanic already existed before then.) This is the greatest unsung hero of mechanics. It opens up so much design space and it adds value to creatures without complicating board state. Man-o'-War and Nekrataal are some of the most memorable non-rare creatures from that era.



Criteria
This round I am looking for innovation. Can you reinvent the ETB trigger to something we've never seen before?

EDIT: In other words, if this is any clearer, take the ETB trigger as inspiration and design something "never done" before.

Woo! I was really proud of that one!

Can you clarify what you mean on this criteria? Do you mean slap a spell effect to an event like they did with ETB effects? Or do you mean create an ETB effect for something that never had an ETB effect before?

Both would work. As I said I am looking for innovation so take the criteria however you read it and do something i don't expect. Sorry for being vague but i think if I were to be any more specific it would be very restrictive.

If i have to reword it, I would say: take the ETB trigger as inspiration and design something "never done" before.

Like it could even be leave play trigger? etb replacement effect (as X enters battlefield)?

Baton of Courage :3:
Artifact - Equipment
Equipped creature has firststrike.
Whenever Baton of Courage becomes attached, equipped creature gets +1/+1 until end of turn.
Equip
Leadership takes many forms, in many contexts. However, fundamentally a leader is one who goes before, supported by all those behind them.
