Just a heads up, Parad, I changed my card. It wasn't that the old card was bad, just that this one has a bit more flair, which I feel will be necessary to compete with the other fantastic submissions.

Mown, I'm going to grade your first one. I hope that's cool.

Sure, it was the one I intended to submit. Although change the Vanishing count to 7, for... reasons. Balance, aesthetics, etc.

I crafted assignments for you based on what I thought you'd be good with.

I was impressed, even if the criteria by itself didn't really excite me, it was still uncanny close.

Hey Parad, any chance of comments sometime soon? I'm really interested to see what you thought of Brown.

Why us? Why these particular assignments?

I'm so glad you asked!

Each criterion was to create a card that matches the color of the designer who's designing it:

ty is very good at organizing grand projects
DS is brilliant yet withdrawn
Mown designs with a certain apathetic ruthlessness, a robe which is often only worn by the best
Libe doesn't go near sets but is the undisputed master of individual oomph
and Rush is very excellent at letting sets breathe, preferring to let them develop organically over time

I'm okay with presenting that image.

Going down memory lane, I'd probably touch up the flavor on my card if I were to submit it again, it feels pretty weak.

Q_is_564453

A couple of things to note:

First, I can see your point if we were trying to wedge a sixth color somewhere in the middle of the traditional color pie, or stick it in the middle. But as YMTC has shown us time and time again, doing so will always make us think, "Why isn't that this color? Or that color? This has elements of other colors in it! It's not unique!" And that's the point of the color dodecahedron. It's a matrix of alternate color pies, five of which share a couple colors from the traditional color pie, and also have three new colors. So it's not weird for the color to feel like it has elements from a couple other colors. (Of course, the link that used to go to the original post on the WOTC forums no longer works, so you might not have been able to read that. I'll have to make a new post at some point.)

As for the card itself, it is basically Avoid Fate in a 1v1, but it has entirely different (and really cool) applications in a multiplayer settings.

Edit: I found the original image I created of the color dodecahedron. Maybe this will help it make sense.

Hey Parad, any chance of comments sometime soon? I'm really interested to see what you thought of Brown.

I'll have comments posted by the end of tomorrow.

When you posted this, I thought to myself "If Parad doesn't give us comments by September 15th, 2017, then I'm definitely going to say something". It turns out that I didn't need to.

I'm flattered to have even been invited to this. Red is my favorite color, so spot on there. Though I can't say that I would have posted the same thing if this contest were held today.

Let's see! Make another one. Dual-colored this time (true not hybrid), one of the colors must be red. 17 words this time, no more no less.

Hey, hey, hey. I just can't make cards on command like that. I'm not a card-making machine!
