A season of great reckoning approaches. The Dojo is here to keep your wits sharp.

Welcome to my Dojo! Not enough contests these days. Let's cut some teeth before the GDS. These Dojos are going to be quick, three-day-long one-shots. This might be the only one but I'd like to do others.

For this Dojo, we're thinking about blade runners, blade running, the ongoing cyborgization of our civilization, the queering of the cyborg, the strange and fascinating and beautiful and awful ways in which, more and more, the robotic replaces the organic, the mechanical apes the biological...

In any case, your criteria: create an artifact creature with a creature type that has never appeared on an artifact creature before. You all have three days! This will close sometime around noon PST on Saturday. Let's see what you got!

Wrench Monkey
Art

Artifact Creature - Monkey
When Wrench Monkey enters the battlefield, add or remove a counter from another target permanent. If you add a counter to a permanent in this way, you decide what type of counter is added.
You'd be surprised how effective throwing it into things can be!
2/1

Tin Wiggler :1:
Artifact Creature - Ferret
Tin Wiggler can't be blocked by creatures with toughness 4 or greater.
Whenever Tin Wiggler becomes blocked, it gets +1/+0 until end of turn.
Whoever built the clockwork ferrets probably did so hoping they wouldn't be as bitey as the real thing. They were wrong.
1/1

Aptyx, March of Progress
Legendary Artifact Creature - God (M)
Affinity for artifacts
Indestructible
All enchantments lose all abilities.
The foolish pray for miracles.
The worthy forge a path with their own hands.

5/5

Hunter-seeker Servitor :3:
Artifact Creature - Cephalid Assassin
Deathtouch
Tap an untapped creature you control: Target creature blocks Hunter-seeker Servitor this turn if able.
1/1
In one of nature's cruel ironies, a shape well adapted to swimming through water is only slightly less effective at swimming in blood.


I still love how there are actual sandworms in m:tg

i hope you dont mind me submitting again

because i get ideas sometimes and have to post them

and this criteria is open ended enough that i will probably submit at least four times

Noh Face
Artifact Creature - Ninja (R)
Whenever Noh Face deals combat damage to a player, you may draw a card.
, Reveal Noh Face from your hand: If you control no creatures named Noh Face, target artifact you control becomes a copy of Noh Face until end of turn.
The mask stares back, stoic and unblinking. Tadeshi moves to uncover it, only to discover what lies underneath is equally as horrifying.
1/3


if you want to only rank one for the purposes of your contest

just pick the last one

but i would appreciate it if you humored me and graded them all

Lasersight Deadeye :5:
Artifact Creature - Cyclops

3/4
"Don't blink."

Ghost in a Shell -
Artifact Creature - Spirit
Whenever ~ dies, manifest.(Target non-creature artifact you control becomes a Spirit artifact creature in addition to its other card types with power and toughness equal to its converted mana cost.)
Whenever a permanent manifested by ~ dies, if ~ is in your graveyard, manifest ~.
2/2

Hmm, need da review the wording.


The Aloof -
Creature - Unicorn
Absorb 1
Spells and abilities target ~ if able.
Whenever ~ becomes the target of a spell or ability, you gain 2 life.
Its beauty invites envy.
3/3

Ahh, screw my unicorn too. Aww, back to me, Unicorn.

The Reflection -
Artifact Creature - Samurai
Bushido 1
At the beginning of combat each turn, create a token copy of each equipment your opponent controls that does not share a name with an equipment attached to ~ and attach it to ~. When ~ leaves the battlefield, exile all equipment tokens created this way.
Equipments attached to ~ can't be equipped to another creature.
It seeks your perfection.
3/4

I believe "attached" covers "equipped" as well.

The Stubborn -
Artifact Creature - Goat
Trample
~ attacks each turn if able.
If an effect would prevent ~ from attacking, ignore that effect.
It pulls its own strings.
5/1

The Fool -
Artifact Creature - Advisor
At the beginning of each player's upkeep, he or she fateseal 1.
It wonders who that is.
0/4

The Silent -
Artifact Creature - Eye
At the beginning of your upkeep, look at the top card of any library and put a observe counter on ~.
Remove all observe counters from ~ and sacrifice it: Reveal the top card of any library. If its converted mana cost is equal or less than the number of Observe counters removed, exile that card.
It waits for its purpose.
1/1

I would say Dancing Scimitar, but really Horrible Hordes is a much better example. Just look at that art.

Yo it would be unfair for me to do unto Silly ( ;) ) what I would not do unto all of you, and since this is a Dojo setting here, specifically for training purposes, let me make this clear:

Submit as many cards as you want, I'll rank them all. (Up to five, you chuds, let me breathe.) I'll commit to only commenting on _one_ card per submitter, a la carte. Since this is a training exercise, I hereby encourage group discussion and critique on any and all cards before, during, and after the close of the Dojo.

I can't tell you how upset I was when Phyrexian Soulgorger didn't get the Dinosaur subtype. I spent months theorycrafting Kinjalli's Caller decks.
