I always saw a lot of White's life link as a morale boost of sorts, rather than actual life drain.

MaRo commented on Jay Treat’s card bought the farm saying they’ve never done Oblivion Ring style effects on an emchamt land, but isn’t that what Chained to the Rocks is?

yeah, I noticed that too, but like it's not really functionally an enchant land. mechanically that's how it works, but it doesn't actually do anything to that land so maybe MaRo's not counting it.

Huh, he's challenging them to make my circus-themed world! It's pretty hard to do, but I always loved the idea of a black-bordered set based around things like mini-games https://forum.nogoblinsallowed.com/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=18420&p=552054&hilit=clown#p552054

They all forgot. MaRo admitted as much on his Tumblr when asked today.

The Circus Challenge: Where MaRo just can't get over how many contestants made Unicycle an equipment rather than a vehicle even though choose to use vehicle would have cost them their one non-evergreen mechanic slot.

Given that it and Clown Car were on the list, Vehicles should have really just been allowed.

"I know you already used your non-Evergreen space on another ability and as a Unicycle isn't in any way enclosed so it wouldn't realistically or even fantastically offer protection to a thing piloting it or even be able to be said to be piloted, but why didn't you make it a Vehicle?" I like Mark well enough but that was a dumb critique. A unicycle is technically a Vehicle, yeah, but it's just a wheel.

Also yeah, right now Vehicles are more Evergreen than Prowess so it shouldn't've been a knock.

GDS #3's Mechanic's challenge:

Didn't someone here design Ancestry already? I feel like that mechanic looks familiar.

Hi! That was me ;) I did Bloodline and Lineage that would both show up in the same set. Bloodline would be a card that would exile a card from your graveyard as its ancestor, and Lineage would trigger from the graveyard, allowing any card to gain its bonus as an ancestor. You would be able to combine the two to have some really epic ancestry!

EDIT: Here's the link. It was neat, but felt overly complex at the time. I'd have to re-review some of it. viewtopic.php?f=17&t=3827&hilit=lineage+ancestor+bloodine
