    April CCL 2018 Top 4 - History Repeating

    Welcome to the Card Creation League!


    Theme

    This month we shall wallow in the nostalgia boom of Dominaria, visiting sites, cultures and events across the plane of Magic's birth.

    Challenge
    Design three cards:
    • A rare Legendary sorcery in both of the colors chosen for your original card. This should show an event from Dominaria's past.
    • An uncommon Legendary creature that is two colors, and neither of the colors used above. This legend should be a descendant (literal or ideological) of one of the uncommon Legends from Legends.
    • A common card that is the last unused color and which uses the "historic" term in its rules text.


    Top 8
    mirrodin71
    IcariiFA
    Hemlock
    void_nothing
    • In sum you should use all five colors, once each.
    • The creature does not have to be the exact same colors as its "ancestor" from Legends, but can be if you like.

    PLEASE NOTE: This month will continue the use of the "Mandatory Top 3 Rule." For this month, you must submit a Top 3 during a round's critique period in order to receive any points for the round. Submitting critiques as well will be worth 2 bonus points in the round.

    Your submissions are due Monday, April 23rd, 23:59 PST.
    Your judgments are due Wednesday, April 25th, 23:59 PST.

    Schedule
    Top 4 — Open to top 4 finishers from last round (April 20th-23rd)
    Top 4 Critiques (Due April 25th)
    Final (End of month, winner determined by public poll)

    You don't lose the game for having 0 or less life as long as you have unspent red mana.
    You don't lose unspent red mana as steps and phases end.
    Whenever you lose life, lose an unspent red mana.

    Sorry yes, please proceed with critiques. Have to get a certification this week so haven't had much time to check in.
    I pushed the critique deadline back a day.

    Oops yes please proceed with critiques of everyone else.
    Let me give you another day since I wasn't on top of this.
    Two people didn't submit so you should be looking at 5 cards from the list below.

    Sure, that works for me. It can be a made-up location that we haven't seen yet as long as the general location or continent is clear.

    Quote from Dom4419 »
    "Golden shadows formed around him as he turned away, as if he stalked through a field of high grass. Then a heartbeat later he vanished as he walked from the plane."

    Am i the only one who thought about Theros during this passage

    I thought that was just "he's a lion so his planeswalking is reminiscent of lions moving around in their habitat", but I suppose it's possible.

    BTW I just noticed this but what do you guys think about consolidating the "top 3 required but critiques get bonus" system into just "critiques and top 3 required"?
    I haven't seen many people give just Top 3s with no critiques recently, and I think it should really be discouraged. The people who don't make it into the Top 3 need to know why, and it's also something of a check to ensure that everyone critiqued the right people.

    Hemlock would still make it into the top 8 based on his round 1 performance, so luckily it didn't really matter in this case. I should probably watch for that during the rounds I guess, I don't want to disqualify people on a technicality but they need to stick to the prompt.
    Also @Hemlock, I assumed your Top 3 were ordered from 1 to 3, but please make that clear in the future.
    Jimmy would have had the second best score but he didn't submit any critiques Frown I know time can be an issue but this contest relies on peer participation so sadly had to zero out those scores.
    Top 8 going up shortly.

    Is this the place where they include the word "Scourge"? I've seen that all the names of sets on Dominaria are showing up in flavor text at least.

    I just PMed everyone who hasn't submitted critiques for the first two rounds in April yet but I'll share here as well. I'm probably going to be doing the calculation and posting of Top 8 in late morning tomorrow, over 18 hours from this post, so I'll be looking at the final scorings then.

    Breya's Lifestaff RW
    Artifact - Equipment (R)
    Equipped creature gets +1/+0, has haste, and attacks each combat if able.
    At the beginning of combat on your turn, you may return target creature card with converted mana cost 2 or less from your graveyard to the battlefield and attach Breya's Lifestaff to it.
