    CLUB FLAMINGO



    Check Near the End of the Thread for the Current Challenge

    Remember: Use IIWs for all challenges


    Quote from Little_Money

    There is only one flamingo, that is Megiddo

    it's Megiddo's club we just post in it.



    Welcome to Club Flamingo! If you aren't familiar with the rules for gentlemen's clubs, open the spoiler right here. If you've posted in "the Winner is Judge" before, you'll be fine.

    1. Submit an entry that fits the current criteria along with a suggestion for the next challenge (an "IIW").

    2. If you win, you are the judge for the next round.

    3. If you're the judge, evaluate all of the entries and choose the best one.
    But isn't this Club Flamingo? Yes. This automatically makes it classier than basically every other thread on here. But this thread isn't made just for me to dress up like a flamingo. In the next spoiler you will find the special rules for this club.

    1. I will facilitate proceedings by sending out PMs and things when needed.

    2. If you are the judge and fail to judge in a reasonable time frame, I will judge for you, using whatever criteria I feel like. Don't subject your fellow posters to this. Have a heart.

    3. If you do not post an "if I win" challenge, you cannot win.

    4. If you DO post a challenge and it's dumb and/or nobody enters, I will take over with a new challenge. You may still judge this challenge if you want, but I'll do it otherwise. If you choose not to judge, see rule #5.

    5. This isn't intended to be Club "Megiddo Does All of the Work." Please try not to abandon things, though I understand that real life is more important than the internet. It really shouldn't be, though.

    6. As detailed here, double posting and certain spammy posts are not allowed. Please review that link before posting.


    Use any criteria you want for the judging! It's up to you (and sometimes me)! If you can't be bothered, use the below rubric.
    Card Balance /10: Is the card printable?
    Card Innovation /10: Is it new and exciting?
    Card Extras /5: Flavor, punctuation, whatever.

    Chemtrails — 101 wins
    Oculus — 69
    AsianInvasion — 65
    Sir Aureus — 60
    PanchoPonceN — 46
    k-rad — 40
    avatarz — 38
    Cythare — 35
    Megiddo — 34

    Hello CCC&G!

    Welcome to the seventh (seriously) WINNER IS JUDGE KNOCKOFF STYLE THREAD!

    This double post will be your introduction to the thread. (Please don't merge if reported, just delete!)

    My original thought for our first challenge was to make a card styled in my image. But we've done that before, and I'm no fan of idolatry. So instead, I started thinking armageddon and came up with this: Make a mass removal card.

    It doesn't have to be for lands, but it can be! Be creative!

    I'll be judging using a method of judging that I discover sometime between now and when I feel like judging. I'll close at approximately 10 entries.

    Enjoy!

    Exile all lands, creatures, artifacts and enchantments.
    Each player searches their library and graveyard for up to X lands where X is equal to the number of lands exiled in this way and puts them onto the battlefield, each player then repeats this process for creatures, artifacts and enchantments.
    There are other possibilities, other worlds, other realms beyond our own petty understanding. Reflect upon the consequences of this.

    Each player sacrifices all permanents he or she controls. For each permanent sacrificed this way, that player searches his or her library for a permanent that shares a type with the sacrificed permanent and puts it onto the battlefield under his or her control. Then each player shuffles his or her library.

    Take a mechanic from the pre-mirrodin era, and a mechanic after the mirrodin era, and create a card that flavorfully melds both mechanics.

    Basically yeah.

    I could have called it "The Best Thread in CCC&G," but that would probably earn me some sort of warning.

    BOOM!

    DESTRUCTIVE FORCE 5/7: C-C-C-ALTERNATE WIN CONDITION!!! Except that you immediately lose, and there's actual no way to work around it (except for Angel's Grace or similar). So your 10 mana card can sometimes just win the game. The fact that you need to play ten mana spells AND bad cards to win makes me think that this is acceptable. As for destructive force? This card will probably take out more actual cards than every other card here, so high score, though it doesn't really count as a removal spell. You know, unless you count Leveler as a removal spell.
    RUINATION 3/4: The first time somebody loses to the deck that can pull this off, there will be much laughter and japery. If you ever manage to figure out how to make it consistent, you'll just lose to a counterspell anyway probably, so it's ok.
    ARMAGEDDON 1/2: It can destroy all lands... that are still in a deck. So I dont' know if it counts. I guess you get half.

    DESTRUCTIVE FORCE 6/7 Or, wait, no. there's other words on the card. The land restriction seems dumb but actually is clever. Artifact accelerants can't be used to get a quick armageddon out there. Not too much to say. Blows up lands.
    RUINATION 3/4: I mean, this is going to basically be as fun as armageddon, which may or may not be a fun card. The differences are slight, really.

    DESTRUCTIVE FORCE 7/7: EVERYTHING EVER IS DEAD FOREVER like unless they have twilight shepherd, but even then they're probably just discarding all of those cards anyway. Feels too similar to All is Dust to me. And it's cheaper?
    RUINATION 1/4: If you ever cast this card against me, I would fly into an unmitigated rage and throw my deck at you. Then I would grab your deck and destroy it with the anger I have built up over 20 years of my life. Then I'd flip the table onto you and pin you underneath it. My fists would be like a meteor shower, pummeling your face to leave craters like on the moon. By which I mean this card is basically not fun at all.

    DESTRUCTIVE FORCE 4/7: Mirror Universe? Oh, wait, Warp World. I was all excited, but you just give everything back! This card is pretty powerful, of course. It's like polymorph, but you can actually run creatures in your deck. It's like Scapeshift, except that it's three colors that aren't red. It's like Shape Anew, because Wizards apparently thinks that we need MORE polymorph variants.
    RUINATION 2/4: Is instantly dying to whatever dumb combo your opponent is going to get with this "fun?" This is entwined Tooth and Nail for 6 mana, you know.

    RUINATION 3/4: Ok, Fireball is a real card that actually exists. But I'd enjoy it to lose that way one time. So you still get points.

    Whenever Gate to Oblivion enters the battlefield, put a chosen counter on up to two target permanents.
    At the beginning of your upkeep, put a chosen counter on target permanent.
    8, Sacrifice Gate to Oblivion: Exile all permanents with a chosen counter on them.

    DESTRUCTIVE FORCE 4/7: You and your strange card types and all that. This is like oblivion stone in reverse, a fact that I think you know, since it's called Oblivion something, whatever. I don't read the entries, just btw. The huge activation cost is a deterrent, but you're hitting probably 5 of your opponent's permanents with it on turn 8. I assume this is a mythic rare. It barely counts as mass removal.
    RUINATION 3/4: Well, if it ever goes off, it would be a beating. But I can't imagine it ever doing that.
    ARMAGEDDON 1/2: You could blow up 5 lands?
    TOTAL: 8

    Haha, seriously? Sure, why not.

    Total War 2RW

    Put a 3/1 red and white Soldier creature token onto the battlefield, then copy that creature token for each time ~ was kicked.
    Untap all creatures. Starting with you, each player taps a creature he or she controls and that creature deals damage equal to it's power to target creature an opponent controls. Repeat this process until no player can tap a creature or if there are no targets.

    DESTRUCTIVE FORCE 5/7: This is the most long-winded wrath I've ever seen. But it's also like, "suddenly, I have 9 power of creatures on the field" when your opponent doesn't have any out there. I don't feel like figuring out if this card actually works as written, but when you get down to it, it's a very abusable wrath and/or not a real wrath.
    RUINATION 4/4: Seems ok.
    ARMAGEDDON 0/2: Unless there are some Rude Awakenings going on, this is not going to be armageddon.
    TOTAL: 9

    This is hard. I have to choose from the 11-pointers I guess.

    This means: OWA's Mudhole variant, Asrama's weird counterspell, and pstmdrn's green wrath?

    I can't give it to a 4 mana "everything ever dies" green card. And I can't give it to mudhole. I think Asrama's card, though ugly and an instant-speed wrath, is very interesting and a new twist on the concept.


    So, Asrama wins!
