    @Cantrip: since the town wincon is posted publicly, don’t you think the scum wincon should be posted as well?
    Some mods do; some mods do not.

    Judgeholder - Design a card with "Assist", "Surge" or "Lieutenant" in its rules text.

    Assist: http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Search/Default.aspx?action=advanced&text= [%22Assist%20(%22]
    Surge: http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Search/Default.aspx?action=advanced&text= [%22surge%20cost%22]
    Lieutenant: http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Search/Default.aspx?action=advanced&text= [lieutenant]+[%22control%20your%20commander%22]

    Design -
    (X/3) Appeal: Do the different player psychographics (Timmy/Johhny/Spike) have a use for the card?
    (X/3) Elegance: Is the card easily understandable at a glance? Do all the flavor and mechanics combined as a whole make sense?

    Development -
    (X/3) Viability: How well does the card fit into the color wheel? Does it break or bend the rules of the game? Is it the appropriate rarity?
    (X/3) Balance: Does the card have a power level appropriate for contemporary constructed/limited environments without breaking them? Does it play well in casual and multiplayer formats? Does it create or fit into a deck/archetype? Does it create an oppressive environment?

    Creativity -
    (X/3) Uniqueness: Has a card like this ever been printed before? Does it use new mechanics, ideas, or design space? Does it combine old ideas in a new way? Overall, does it feel “fresh”?
    (X/3) Flavor: Does the name seem realistic for a card? Does the flavor text sound professional? Do all the flavor elements synch together to please Vorthos players?

    Polish -
    (X/3) Quality: Points deducted for incorrect spelling, grammar, and templating.
    (X/2) *Main Challenge: Design a card with "Assist", "Surge" or "Lieutenant" in its rules text.
    (X/2) Subchallenges: (1) Color identity doesn't include any colors from round 1 card. (2) CMC of 6 or greater.

    Total: X/25
    *An entry with 0 points here is subject to disqualification.

    Oh! No, no, I'm fine, I feel great! Just ordered some more vitamins and stuff. I was just exercising. I taped a 20-minute workout and played it back at high speed on my machine so it only took ten minutes. I got a great workout.

    This is going to be a lot of sound and fury building to an inevitable Rod or Fuwa lynch. Can we pretend the deadline is like Friday at noon and do something?
    Hey, there's an idea! Although I've always thought that "player count + lynch threshold = Day deadline" was appropriate, I've never run a larger game. After some discussion in spectator chat, I'm immediately updating the D1 deadline to this Friday, 9pm, MST. If you have concerns or objections about this change, please PM me via MTGS or on Discord.

    Day 1 Deadline is 9pm, MST, on Friday, December 14: Countdown Clock

    I think this building should be condemned. There's serious metal fatigue in all the load-bearing members, the wiring is substandard, it's completely inadequate for our power needs, and the neighborhood is like a demilitarized zone.

    Skyclaw Fossil 1(U/R)(U/R)
    Artifact (U)
    T: Look at the top 2 cards of your library, then put them back in any order.
    Sacrifice ~: Exile the top two cards of your library. Until end of turn, you may play them as though they were in your hand.
    I don't really see why this has to be a colored artifact. Compare to Sensei's Divining Top. The "may play as though they were in your hand" might need the color restriction, I suppose, so why not lower the cost to 2 mana , then change the cost on the last clause to " U/R mana , Sacrifice ~"? Other than that, I think that it's a nice card. I would prooooooooobably err on the side of rare, mostly for the whole "pseudo-draw 2 cards" concept (and for the similarities to Top), but it might be ok at uncommon. The reorder clause is pretty much a must, for the reason you list. I like the card mechanically. Flavorfully, the name makes me feel like it ought to echo Skyclaw Thrash (like "flip a coin, if you win target attacking creature gets +1/+1 and flying until end of turn" or equipment that grants that ability, or somesuch).

    I wonder what happens when Golgari punk-zombies and Izzet frat boys get drunk together and design new spells:

    Grave-Muck Flashbang UB
    Instant
    Undergrowth - Counter target spell with converted mana cost less than the number of cards in your graveyard.
    Jump-start (You may cast this card from your graveyard by discarding a card in addition to paying its other costs. Then exile this card.)

    Thought: Make the specialty queue be for semi-completed to completed specialty-level setups at any time and the FTQ be for completed specialty-level setups only?

    Alternatively, combine the two. Make the specialty queue the submission zone, and then at regular intervals, an FTQ search for ONE, COMPLETED setup will lead to one being picked off the specialty queue by a fair process.
    This is effectively what I was thinking, but wasn't sure how it was significantly different from just a specialty queue.

    I'd be fine with 12-8-4. Generally the more the merrier as long as it's not oppressively time consuming. I mean, the point of the contest (/entire subforum) is to spur creativity.

    Effective immediately, Rhand replaces rezombied. To prevent angle-shooty speculation, the slot that Rhand replaced into was decided by random.org.

    Thanks, Rhand!

    This feels fine, for the most part, very utilitarian, solid concept. It *might* even be able to be a 3/5 for that cost. You know what would be a nifty twist?

    Golgari Elemental 3 B/G mana B/G mana
    Creature - Elemental
    When Golgari Elemental enters the battlefield, target creature gets -1/-1 for each black mana spent to cast ~.
    When Golgari Elemental enters the battlefield, you gain 2 life for each green mana spent to cast ~.
    2/4

    So the evoke is severely curtailed (maybe up the evoke cost to 1 mana B/G mana ?), but the creature itself is a 2/4 that gives you up to 10 life and/or a creature gets up to -5/-5. That would be some pretty fancy Spike/Johnny candy. Heh, what's really cool (well, maybe "interesting" is a better word) is that you could make the Evoke cost 1 mana (or 2 mana in my alternate version) and it would be just as effective as B/G mana (or 1 mana B/G mana ).

    Glimpse of Desolation BB
    Enchantment
    Flash
    Creatures controlled by opponents get -1/-1.
    At end of turn, sacrifice ~. If you do, each opponent discards a card.
    A moment of insanity for a lifetime of regret.

    Dr. Venkman, we believe that the purpose of science is to serve mankind. You, however, seem to regard science as some kind of dodge or hustle. Your theories are the worst kind of popular tripe, your methods are sloppy and your conclusions are highly questionable. You, Dr. Venkman, are a poor scientist.
