They had a cycle from SOI, which were sac effects designed to help with delirium.
Theros had some, obviously, the non-creature ones also being sac triggers. But these were mostly here because Theros had an enchantment theme and helped with stuff like constellation.
BFZ had one which was a little odd; I think it was there to help with creature removal as — surprise! — BFZ was creature heavy.
Anyway, I think my point is: common non-Aura enchantments typically don’t exist because unlike creature removal, enchantment removal is not in all five colors. They can exist for the right reasons, but knowing the type of set they are being designed for is necessary to determine the reasoning behind the design decision for the card.
I think designing a non-Aura enchantment as a common may be a mistake… unless you are actually a genius and are simply trying to weed out those who fail to understand why non-Aura enchantments aren’t at common and are in fact looking for enchantment cards of multiple types.
Also, if you get no takers, I could totally host a CCL again.
@kjsharp — I wrote my response hastily. I should have mentioned it is only primary in Green and Blue. Red can, less often, and in a Red way, perhaps like Combustible Gearhulk. Drawing off a scry feels too aggressive to me.
Higher rarities do card bends from time to time, centered around a color’s particular themes (for The Scorpion God it’s -1/-1 counters and creature death; makes sense).
You can disagree with me if you like, but overall I didn’t like your card as much as some of the other entries.
I haven’t hung around here much lately, but what intrigued me to participate originally, and later host, was the ease of participation. The contest is laid back, the themes are generally fun, and it’s quick to submit an entry. Please don’t ever change any of that. 👍🏼
@kjsharp, I think you’re right about asking for more Top 3’s. Fortunately while I was hosting it was rarely an issue. A Top 3 is really one of the easiest points to get, so it surprises me people haven’t submit more. That being said, I do believe that sometimes deadlines can be missed when real life kicks in, and I would feel absolutely horrible if the best design didn’t advance because they simply missed a Top 3.
If the CCL taught me anything, it’s that it’s really a contest with yourself — it’s actually a mastery of timing. To help with this, later rounds I directly messaged participants to remind them they got in and get them to post. (I don’t know, maybe that served those months well?)
In any case… my goodness your posts here came off quite combative. I think it’s great getting new blood, and new ideas, but can you turn some of your passion into a more friendly manner next time? If people are being belligerent this will only turn others away and have the opposite effect: less participation.
As long as the environment remains positive and courteous around here (we are human, after all, people make mistakes) I will try to participate. But if things turn sour, I’m not going to stick around.
