I remember the original GDS's Art Challenge had like no Green card arts. And this one has basically no white ones. Most likely color for each art:
A- Blue. It's a Merfolk using water magic on something.
B- Blue or Blue/White. The long stream of Blue means they'd definitely make this a Blue card but the fact he seems to be boosting his own weapon and the meantioned above likeliness of being from Bant makes me think a WU dual card could work.
C- Black as she's surrounding herself in the void. Though a colorless card also could work.
D- Green. It's a wurm lunging at something flying, this looks like an underwhelming 1990's Green card that would like deal 5 damage to one Flyer for too much mana compared to Plummet.
E- Blue because it's so goddamn blue. SOme sort of reading, probably would let you search top five cards for an Instant or Sorcery.
F- Red or Black. Giant demon in field of flames, it's Red or Black.
G- Green. This is obviously a fight card. I could see this being one of the enchantments.
H- Hard to tell for sure but looks either Green or Green/Black.
I- Red. It's flaming rain.
J- Green. It's an Ixalan Merfolk which means Green or Blue and the framing of crouching, looking at tracks makes me think Green. Probably with Explore.
K- I actually thought that was a construct before, but yes it is a DInosaur. Gonna be honest this art makes me think Ixalan reprint of Temple of Enlightenment for some reason. Just really strikes me as a WU dual land. Most likely to be used as White as it's the most color neutral.
L- U or UB, most likely some sort of control card and not a creature itself. Could work as an enchantment, probably that grants a Saboteur ability.

A looks more like a salamander to me (Amphin Cutthroat) which I think would put them on Shandalar.

I know I'm super late but does anyone feel that converge is a better flavored mechanic for Bigtopia than OGW? Maro thinks it isn't a good fit for a circus but I think is because the mechanic that we saw didn't have the feel that he wanted it to have in OGW.

I like the idea of Converge, especially in conjunction with Gold tokens. I just am not sure the contestant did a great job of showing it off.

I still don't get Converge in OGW besides "How about we try pushing Colorless AND 5-color decks in the same Set! It's a genius idea, isn't it?"

For the record, converge was in BFZ and not in OGW, but yeah it felt pretty out of place regardless.

I'm not too happy with it, but here's my attempt at the newest challenge:

I’m none too happy about Scott’s showing. He pushed some odd shard stuff for a set where everything was 2-color. No reason for the white Werewolf card or ue Human one besides shooting himself in the foot

Is there a way to see the final challenge designs without watching a video?

We're supposed to get an article about the finale next week.

Article was posted up, I think yesterday, with the final challenges. Here's my take on the Challenges. Threw these together in 10 min. Didn't bother with names.

Seance-Replacement 1:
Enchantment | {R}
Non-Spirits you control get +1/+1 for each Spirit in your graveyard.

Seance-Replacement 2:
Sorcery | {R}
Search your library or graveyard for a creature with power equal to or less than the number of creatures you control and put it into your hand, then shuffle your library.

Seance-Replacement 3:
Enchantment | {R}
Whenever a Spirit is put into your graveyard from anywhere, scry 1, then you may reveal the top card of your library. If a Spirit is revealed this way, put it into your hand.


Grading these myself based on the comments from the judges, I would have to say that Seance-Replacement 1, as a Glorious Anthem-type card, would probably be the most liked of the submissions, with Seance-Replacement 2 and 3 being thrown out. #2 would be thrown out because of the hesitation on searching for stuff, somewhat off-colour, might be too risky this late in the process. #3 would be tossed because it's more like an Uncommon than a Rare. Congrats to the winners.

1 feels way too dangerous to print at the last minute.

I found a bit weird that the winning submission used rules that weren't aviable at the time instead of the oblivion ring wording.
