    Keeping it open for a couple more days I guess since there seems to be no rush here.

    I don't think we have any reason to believe the guy in the art is Matias - I don't think anyone knew what Matias looked like at the time those cards came out. It's a Twitter joke.
    On the other hand, the original ability here was pretty prescient - just got printed as Morophon, the Boundless.

    Thanks, I guess it worked out well enough for being completely made-up on the spot. I'm sure there's something cool I could have done, had some thoughts about tracking down people's first CCL posts or repeating challenges from a selection of past CCLs but it was too ambitious for the time I had. Fun to jump in one more time for the old CCL though.

    Card Creation League The Last (June 2019)
    Final Salvation



    We skipped from the first CCL in 2007, ahead four years at a time revisiting past mechanics. Subject16 and void_nothing made it to the present, and have prepared a set of cards following some design notes from this year while tying it in to some meta flavor.
    Get to voting!

    Challenge:
    Create any number of cards that collectively fulfill all of these criteria
    • The words Subject, Void, and Salvation must be included
    • A card using proliferate
    • Continue a cycle formed from one or more past cards
    • A wedge-colored Legend that is a follower of your Legend from Round 1


    Quote from Subject16 »
    Completing the Eminence commanders and providing a wedge Emrakul follower:
    Tovolar, Arcane Alpha 2GUR
    Legendary Creature - Werewolf Shaman (Mythic)
    Eminence - Whenever another Werewolf you control transforms, if Tovolar, Arcane Alpha is in the command zone or on the battlefield, you may pay 2. If you do, create a token that's a copy of that permanent and a 2/2 green Wolf creature token. They gain haste.
    Trample, hexproof
    GUR: Search your library for a Wolf or Werewolf creature card, reveal it, and put it into your hand. Then shuffle your library.
    5/5

    My namesake:
    Subject of the Moon 1G
    Creature - Werewolf Horror (Uncommon)
    Whenever Subject of the Moon is put into a graveyard from anywhere, its owner may shuffle it into their library.
    At the beginning of each upkeep, if no spells were cast last turn and you both own and control Subject of the Moon and a creature named Tovolar, Arcane Alpha, exile them, then meld them into The Mondronen Voidpack.
    2/1

    //

    Void's namesake:
    The Mondronen Voidpack
    Legendary Creature - Eldrazi Werewolf (Mythic)
    Trample, hexproof, haste
    Whenever The Mondronen Voidpack attacks, for each other attacking Wolf, Werewolf or Eldrazi,create a token that’s a copy of that card and that’s tapped and attacking.
    At the beginning of each upkeep, if a player cast two or more spells last turn, create a 4/4 colorless Eldrazi Werewolf creature token with menace.
    8/8

    Proliferate/Salvation:
    Steward of Salvation 3WW
    Creature - Elephant Cleric (Rare)
    Vigilance
    Whenever you gain life, proliferate. (Choose any number of permanents and/or players, then give each another counter of each kind already there.)
    1W: Target creature gains lifelink until end of turn.
    "The Conclave's reach is too short. Now we must protect all Ravnica."
    3/5
    Quote from void_nothing »
    Menial Subjects 3RR
    Creature - Ogre (R)
    Trample, menace, infect
    When Menial Subjects enters the battlefield, proliferate.
    RR, Sacrifice Menial Subjects: Proliferate twice.
    Not Urabrask's slaves - compelled to follow him by something dim and suppressed inside.
    4/4

    Eight years later

    Voidheart Vizier 5BBB
    Creature - Djinn (R)
    Lifelink
    Whenever you cast a spell, look at target opponent's hand and choose a nonland card from it. That player exiles that card. When they do, each player loses life equal to half that card's converted mana cost, rounded down.
    His ego trips make others fall down.
    5/5

    Assure Salvation WU
    Instant (R)
    All spells lose all types and abilities and become instants with "Create a 4/4 white Angel creature token with flying."
    "Can there even be a path not leading to a brighter future? Not so." - Ooria, Archangel of Clocks

    Noklis, the Abnormal Bloom BGU
    Legendary Creature - Elf Druid (R)
    Deathtouch
    T: Untap up to two target tapped lands. Each land you don't control untapped in this way deals 1 damage to its controller.
    4, T: If target permanent had a counter removed from it this turn, destroy it. Otherwise, put on it your choice of two +1/+1 counters or two counters of a kind already on it.
    1/3

    Oh I forgot to type to the end of that line where I was going to have you put those words in the card titles, but no worries. Flavor text is fine too. You could even make a salvation mechanic if you want :p

    Quote from Manite »
    Instants and sorceries are of course the most convenient way to pump the effect. Here are some examples with cmc 1-10:


    Just to clarify this again, while those certainly are different CMCs and therefore different mana costs, you can ALSO have different mana costs within each CMC, like the example explicitly laid out on the card.
    Fun card but I don't know how this is in a core set instead of like Modern Horizons - multiple people here have already confused how it works.

    Waiting for Subject16 - they will advance but the other finalist depends on their scores.

  • posted a message on Kethis The Hidden Hand Mana Source Preview
    Covers Arvad the Cursed, Reki, the History of Kamigawa, old Captain Sisay, Day of Destiny, Time of Need, Primevals' Glorious Rebirth, Yomiji, Who Bars the Way - definitely a theme I had not identifed among these colors, but there's enough there to make it work.

    This one is Hemlock for me - Hall of Gemstone is a way more fun choice of Magus than Chains, which who knows what it really does.
    The land is the most interesting card of Eventide's for me, but soft countering every turn seems kind of unfun. Hemlock's land ability is clean and cool.
    Eventide's atog fits a Dominaria theme but it seems really hard to do much fun with. Eating historic stuff would have opened some possibilities. The Forceatog is an interesting source of burst damage, feels like it could almost be red.
    Neither of the lords really did anything new.

    Yes please proceed. I'll look to get the final competitors determined and round posted on Saturday.
    Sorry about the color identity Algernone I may be totally making this up as I go...

    Haseph, Blade Harvester 2W
    Creature - Artificer (R)
    Whenever a Plains enter the battlefield under your control, create a colorless Equipment artifact token named Razorgrass Blade. It has "Equipped creature gets +1/+1", equip 1, and living weapon (When that Equipment enters the battlefield, create a 0/0 black Germ creature token, then attach this to it.)
    2/2

    It makes BLADES OF GRASS and WHEAT GERMS

    Yeah either of those are fine - the general idea was just to replace/fix megamorph but "face-down card as 2/2" is the core idea. Both of the challenges use both sides of the card.
