    Algernone25: When I first saw this I thought you designed 2BB Dream Salvage, but this is in reverse. This I feel is properly costed. Very devastaing with any kind of cheap card filtration spell that draws (e.g. Brainstorm).

    mirrodin71: Reminds me of Sasaya, Orochi Ascendant but only for one land. I don't know if the base cost for this needs to be 6 - I couldn't see myself wanting to play this for that much mana, ever.

    Flatline: This is a very elegant solution to the challenge. It's a safe design, yes, but I have to give you elegance points. The only other thing I have to dock you for is there is ample room for flavor text and none has been supplied.

    Hemlock: This should probably be base 1/1 or 0/1 - it's a creative idea and has great synergy with the challenge. Just needs a bit more development.

    Cardz5000: This is a great puzzle for Johnny to solve, but without some kind of protection seems a bit difficult to pull off. Also why only sorcery cards? Are instant cards excluded for a reason?

    Legend: I get the feeling this would end up being problematic for big formats. I like the synergy between Urban Evolution and this, but I feel this would wind up being banned/restricted in at least one format.

    netn10: This needs more oomph. I think if this were a 2/2 for B I'd consider it for suicide black. Maybe a crude Madness enabler? Too weak as is though.

    BrainPo: Props for pushing boundaries with this one. I don't think this breaks anything, but I have a suspicion this is undercosted by half a mana (cf. Guttersnipe).

    Subject16: This does not meet the challenge.

    TheDrB: This actually doesn't work within the rules as they currently are, but there could easily be a new rule to handle this sort of interaction. The way it's worded, the ability would only trigger once, ever, plus memory issues (the granting of indestructible is indefinite.)

    willows: I don't think it's necessary for this to enter the battlefield tapped. This also feels like it should be an uncommon (for Limited balance as well as complexity reasons - indestructible should be used sparingly at common.)

    Jimmy Groove: My favorite submission out of the bunch by far. I do need to dock you for spelling and grammar in a couple spots, but the solid design more than makes up for it. The restrictive mana cost is needed for this to be balanced.

    Rouse the Gargantuans 5RGW
    Sorcery {M}
    Reveal cards from the top of your library until you reveal a creature card. Put that card onto the battlefield, then put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order. That creature gains vigilance and haste until end of turn.
    Epic (For the rest of the game, you can’t cast spells. At the beginning of each of your upkeeps, copy this spell except for its epic ability.)

    District Swallower 3GUU
    Creature - Leviathan {R}
    Flying, trample
    District Swallower's base power and toughness are each equal to the number of lands you control.
    Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, you may draw a card.
    Sacrifice three lands: District Swallower gains hexproof until end of turn.

    For each creature an opponent controls, that creature’s control choose one —

    • You creature a copy of that creature.

    Sure, but in your case bear in mind The Great Aurora is already a card.

    CCL February 2019 Finals

    “The Climax”

    Theme

    February will be Return month! Planar revisits have been some of Wizards' most popular sets in recent years. This month, you will be designing cards for a return to a plane that has yet to be revisited in a Magic set. Be wary of the design choices you make; the cards you design will influence your design limitations for future rounds this month.

    Final Challenge:
    Design two cards from your chosen plane:
    1) A mythic rare card representing an event with plane-wide consequences.
    2) Choose any one of your other cards previously submitted (from any round for the February CCL). Design a card that reflects how that card would change after the event depicted by your first submission this round has occurred.


    • The event does not necessarily need to be a physical reshaping of the plane - it can be something more subtle, but it must have an effect that transforms the entire plane. Examples of this include The Great Aurora (the event that transforms Lorwyn into Shadowmoor), Emrakul, the Aeons Torn (the invasion of the Eldrazi throughout Zendikar), and Conflux (the merging of the five shards of Alara).
    • Make sure to include a rarity.

    PLEASE NOTE: This month will NO LONGER use the "mandatory top 3" rule. Critiques and top 3s will each be worth one bonus point per round but it will be possible to score points and advance even without submitting a top 3. This will also be done on a trial basis; future months may once again require top 3s from contestants.

    Round 1 — Open to Everyone (Feb 1th-6th)
    Round 2 — Open to Everyone (Feb 7th–12th)
    Rounds 1 and 2 Critiques (Due Feb 15th)
    Top 8 — Open to top 8 finishers (Feb 16th–19th)
    Top 8 Critiques (Due Feb 23rd)]
    Top 4 — Open to top 4 finishers from last round (Feb 24th–26th)
    Top 4 Critiques (Due Mar 2)

    Final (End of month, winner determined by public poll)


    picnic_bomber (Kamigawa)
    Cardz5000 (Lorwyn/Shadowmoor)

    Your deadline for submission is March 8 at 11:59:59 CST.

    Hellkite Adolescent 3RR
    Creature - Dragon {U}
    Flying
    When Hellkite Adolescent enters the battlefield, it deals 3 damage to any target.
    Dragons of Jund are most dangerous when they are young, as they cannot be picky about what to prey upon.
    3/3
