21 people is apparently a pretty awkward number for this sort of thing so i guess only half of you will be competing in the first round

Sorry!

Bracket: https://challonge.com/14o65psj

Image

The theme for the first round is races that aren't the colour they are usually associated with. I mainly chose this theme because there were five of you and there are also five colours. I'll be grading primarily on how good I feel your card is and on whether or not it meets the criteria.

First Round pairs are as follows:

PBP vs JV


Elevate Vs Razor


Arathinian vs Mown


Curious Heartless vs Knight Otu


Q vs Flopfoot


also apologies to mata i tried to set you up with JV but i messed up with the software and didn't feel like remaking the bracket you'll just have to hope you and him both make it to the third round

Whenever a creature with toughness 4 or greater enters the battlefield under your control, target opponent discards a card.

i was a little disappointed to see you and elevate squaring off right away b/c you two are two of my favourite designers but i decided that random was fairer than some convoluted skill measurement system thing

gl razor i believe in u

i forgot that deadlines were a thing

I'm going to set a tentative deadline of Friday (may 18th) Noon EST. If we get all the entries in before that it can end earlier or if there are still a lot of people left we can switch to a slower pace or if one person needs an extension b/c their grandpa is falling down the stairs that might be fine too

Dude I'm super impressed you remembered I went by Crouch, even I forgot about that.

I went by Crouch first on Gleemax then Elevate after that.

if I make a white card that destroys demons is that against the spirit of the competition

also I want to mention that I also knew you went by the name of crouch please love me
although I thought you went by elevate and then crouch and then elevate again
There were at least some mental gymnastics going on as to why you were eligible for the "curse of ymtc champs", but I don't remember entirely what.

Yeah the conjecture was whether or not the curse was still a curse based on my actual join date or Elevate's start date.
The rich lore of YMtC history coming to the fore

Dunora, Arbiter of Omens |
Legendary Creature - Sphinx
Flying
Whenever another creature enters the battlefield, its controller names a card, then reveals the top card of their library. If the revealed card isn't the named card, destroy that creature.
He is judgement given form: piercing and without retribution.
4/4


I think my wording is a little rusty, but you get it.

Fallower Hellkite
Creature - Dragon (R)
Flying, menace
Whenever Fallower Hellkite deals combat damage to a player, put a fallowing counter on a random target nonbasic land that player controls. If that land already has a fallowing counter on it, destroy it instead.
The dragons of Baradhan are a greedy and jealous bunch. What they can't have, no one else shall, either.
4/4
