    Next: Anime tropes or icons
    About the next challenge: Iconic anime characters, writers, series, movies, etc are all fine!

    Nothing too obscure or it's unlikely I'll get the reference.

    P.S. Re this bit, it's nice that you even considered it might be intentional. To be honest I just hurriedly copied my templating from way back when & spent longer thinking about the uncommonability than the type line. D'oh. To be fair, I did warn you! Still won though. Wink
    I wonder if you intended to leave it non-legendary.

    Can I just submit my Planeswalker design which won a previous round on here, but add a few intentional templating errors?

    That seems like enough to be worth judging! Shortish judgments this time, since I’m on my mobile while chaperoning an American tourist (not werewolf) in London... but this was a nice, punchy challenge. Thanks to all who entered!

    Sephon19 - Love the concept, very flavorful. This is a lot of sizzle (aka use of unique counters) for not much steak (aka excitement or viability) though. Also, I’m preferring entries where “interacting with enchantments” doesn’t just mean “punishing playing enchantments with damage”. 5/10

    mirrislegend - Pros: Very interesting & positive full-on multiplayer burn card to punish jank combo decks. Strongly characterful. Not too busy. Genuinely viable as a sideboard card. Exactly the right cost. Cons: This is such pure punishment that I’m not sure I can honestly say it’s “interacting” with enchantments to a meaningful degree. 7/10

    Legend - Eminently printable junk common! So a sleek piece of design professionalism... just not very exciting. Goes in a red deck with Curses, so that’s fun (...but see next entry). 6/10

    Mergatroid_Jones - Absolutely nailed it. The oread can punish Enchant Creature usage... but mostly it’s crying out to be in a deck packed with Curses. And looking down the Gatherer list of red Curses, it actually makes me want to build that deck. Bravo.

    Afterthought: The deck would totally splash for Mirrorweave as a win condition. Fun times.

    Hrothgar is nice iceing on the cake. As a general in EDH he proactively transmutes tiny aggressive red auras (ideally on creatures whicb are about to die) into the infamous swingy & massively overcosted red chaos enchantments. In constructed he semi-subtly hoses combo decks by disrupting & selectively milling away their combo pieces. Maybe I’m overanalysing this guy... but this is exactly the sort of imaginatively unconventional stuff which I was hoping people would enter with. 9/10

    graffd02 - At first I liked this as an elegant & straightforward design which probably could be printed. It’s the purest form of an enchantment punisher. But then while I was judging Mergatroid’s oread I read through the list of red Curses... which made me realise this is just Curse of the Pierced Heart with a serious limitation on its playability. So that’s less fun. 5/10

    Winner: Mergatroid_Jones, decisively

    Equilibrium and Conspiracy also relatively useful for achieving this. It’s still not viable... but it’s at least something you’d try to build around for fun, maybe?
