    Overall I think a time based challenge run works better than the first to get a certain amount of points. Three weeks seems like a good amount of time, but I'm not against shorter intervals either.

    Kashimi, the Molten Tyrant
    Legendary Land Creature - Elemental (Mythic)
    Menace, Dormant (This permanent enters the battlefield tapped with a slumber counter on it. It's not a creature for as long as it has a slumber counter on it.)
    T: Add R. If Kashimi, the Molten Tyrant is a creature, add BRG instead and sacrifice another land.
    Kashimi gets +1/+1 for each land card in all graveyards.
    2BRG: Untap Kashimi and remove a slumber counter from it. If you do, each opponent sacrifices an artifact, and enchantment, and a land.

    Design -
    (X/3) Appeal: Do the different player psychographics (Timmy/Johhny/Spike) have a use for the card?

    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?

    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?

    From the Multiverse's most important locales like Dominaria to mysterious and little-known worlds like Xerex, some planeswalkers aren't content to keep their battles to a single plane, going head to head even while 'walking in a Planerush.

    Right sorry for the delay on this one,

    Mirrislegend: This card is pretty overpowered. Repeated creature stealing usually requires a lot of setup to do so, but this does it with no drawback at instant speed. A walking angler fish is a good Krasis design however.

    Graffd20: Nice design, with good flavor text. The counter removal might be too efficient without a mana cost considering it comes into play with two of them already. Octopus Cat is a very cool design and I'm sure I'd be horrified at the art for this card.

    Ukla: Quite a good card all things considered, but this should be more of a Colossal Whale callback with the "exile until" type. It's also a bit too expensive for my tastes. Ooze Whale isn't too interesting of a creature type considering you could just slap Ooze on anything and make it Simic though.

    Sephon19: They'll only print this card when pigs fly!! All jokes aside, Serra Avenger shows us you can get more power for restrictions on cheap but powerful creatures, so I could see this as a 4/4 or a 3/3 with trample. Boar Bird is good alliteration and I like it.

    Mergatroid_Jones: Cool card that's very similar to Animar. Ooze Fish Ape is a nice creature type, makes me think of the "missing link" concept.

    willows: This probably has some wording issues that play design would change to fit their card structure. But it does a good job bridging the gap between fish and humans with Merfolk as well as provide a lord for the two tribes. However the Krasis are definitely animalistic hybrids rather than humanoid so I wouldn't say this card fits the challenge criteria.

    Cardz5000: Holy mother this card can get big quickly as well as filter through your deck? There's a lot to process here and you conveyed the octopus feel well by implementing Adapt exemptions. I also appreciate the fact you gave it a name and tried to add a callback to Fblthp.

    Void_nothing: Good callback to Simic Ragworm. The second ability makes me think that it's swallowing the creatures and transporting them across in its maw as some sort of infiltration tactic. Leviathan Worm makes me think of the Sky Swallowers but without flying. Interesting card and very strong for limited.


    Cool designs overall, but I'm giving the win to Cardz5000
