Special note: From here on, there will be more cards, more criteria per card, or both. I understand that there is/will be a lot to do in a limited amount of time. As such, try to make at least one criterion per card if you can't spare the time for more. You will lose points for not including criteria, but not as much as not making the required number of cards. Obviously, if you can make all the cards and include every criterion, that will be to your advantage. Thank you for your time, and keep up the good work.

(This notice has been added to the round announcement.)

Gustcloak, rules text > 13 words.

Burnwillow Lyrist
Creature — Dryad (R)
2/2
Haste
Burnwillow Lyrist must be blocked if able.
Whenever Burnwillow Lyrist becomes blocked, you may untap it and remove it from combat. If you do, you may put a creature card from your hand onto the battlefield tapped, attacking, and blocked by each creature that was blocking Burnwillow Lyrist.
“Oh, my. Seems you’re not the only one who finds my voice enchanting.”

Land, consequences of greed.

Forgotten Paradise
Land (R)
: Add one mana of any color no other lands could produce.
“Oh, how we loved this spot of land. We’d play and learn here, a place where our imaginations ran wild. But as we grew, it became mundane, and we sated our curiosities elsewhere. How greedy we were to explore, and rob this place of its wonder.”
—Rinaea, somber wayfinder


Biocurse, doesn't untap, also rules text > 13 words.

Torgaar, the Howling Famine
Legendary Creature — Avatar (R)
7/7
Torgaar, the Howling Famine enters the battlefield tapped and doesn't untap during your untap step.
Whenever another creature dies, untap Torgaar.
: Put a -1/-1 counter on each other creature.
Hunger only ends when there are no stomachs left to feel it.

Ithichian Maze
Land - Maze | {R}
: Untap target attacking creature and remove it from combat. Ithichian Maze doesn't untap during your next untap step.
: Add .

Notes: Non-white gustcloak, doesn't untap during controller's untap step, is a land, uses 13 or more words. Pretty standard Maze of Ith variant, literally. I don't care if you think it's too simple. In fact, I think the fact that I've been able to fulfill such criteria using Commons is something I can take pride in.

Counting Collector |
Creature - Vampire Advisor | {U}
Whenever Counting Collector or another creature you control dies, create a colorless artifact token with ", Sacrifice this artifact: Add one mana of any color." and you lose 1 life.
Whenever you sacrifice an artifact, you lose 1 life.
[3/1]

Notes: Tragic greed, could also be 13 or more words. You want lots of mana? Counting Collector can give it to you. We don't see enough black "power, at any price" cards, and I always liked them. This can rocket you up in mana, but it'll cost you a lot of life to do so.

Curse of Many Forms |
Enchantment - Aura Curse | {R}
Enchant creature.
Enchanted creature is a Shapeshifter in addition to its other types.
Whenever another creature enters the battlefield, put a -1/-1 counter on enchanted creature and it becomes a copy of that creature.

Notes: Biocurse, could also be a tragic consequence of greed for copying effects, but that's a stretch, and also 13 or more words. A classic sci-fi trope is a creature that changes shape, but painfully so. This creature will keep changing its shape until it dies.

Unstable Mine Shaft

When ~ has three or more Greed counters on it, transform it.

So, I have the grades done for this round. If every contestant agrees, I can post it early so you all have more time to work on the next round.

Sharain, Sultan of the Dark Maelstrom
:1::u::r::b:
Legendary Creature - Human Djinn Wizard
At the beginning of your upkeep, draw a card and Sharain, Sultain of the Dark Maelstrom deals 2 damage to you.
Whenever a source you control deals damage to you, Sharain, Sultan of the Dark Maelstrom deals that much damage to each opponent.
Sharain may have been born the son of a Juzam Djinn, but his cruelty was all his own.
3/5

Sharain's Gift
:2::b:
Sorcery
Search your library for a card. An opponent guesses that card's name. If Sharain's Gift wasn't cast from your hand, they guess twice instead. Reveal that card. If they guessed wrong, put that card into your hand. Otherwise Sharain's Gift deals damage to you equal to half your life, rounded up. Then shuffle your library.
Flashback :b:

Well, the idea for Grim is to flash out, block and then cull on your turn. Giving haste makes him a 4-cmc one-sided boardwipe of sorts.

For the mine, control decks don't play creatures, yes?

Hmm. I see what you mean about haste being unnecessary.

Depends on the control deck, and I'll admit I wasn't thinking about balance in the context of a creatureless deck.

Conceding this round. Confused can take my spot. I spent all day working and traveling, and I'm finally looking at the criteria and it's 11 pm in a time zone two hours behind my normal time zone and I have work early tomorrow and I'm exhausted.

Fun contest, though. I agree with razorborne that this would be much more doable with week long rounds.

Sorry to hear that, Q. Good luck with work.

Confused, if you want, you may take his place.

Demon of Wishes |
Creature - Demon | {R}
Flying, Trample
Demon of Wishes enters the graveyard with three wish counters on it.
, Remove a wish counter from Demon of Wishes: Reveal the top card of your library. You may play that card without payings its mana cost. If you don't, exile it. Only opponents may activate this ability while Demon of Wishes is in your graveyard.
[6/6]

Notes: Corrupted wishes, works from gaveyard. An evil version of Djinn of Wishes. I kept trying to make something that was working on the concept that wishes in Magic take the form of casting from the library, grabbing from the library, or grabbing from outside the game. A lot of those templates used Djinn of Wishes. Then I realized that a more direct homage might be very appropriate here. Was originally going to have it enter the battlefield with wish counters, but I needed to work in the graveyard mechanic somewhere. Inspiration struck, and I got the idea of having the first card in a graveyard that gets counters on it. It might seem a little weird at first, and maybe some rules would need to change, but its a neat way to show how you get your "wish" of a big, powerful demon to destroy your opponents with (in the same 4cmc big demon that helps opponents vein), but once destroyed, your opponent can get powerful benefits out of.

Bountess of Rivers |
Legendary Creature - Merfolk Angel | {MR}
Flying, Islandwalk, Hexproof from converted mana cost 3 or less
Merfolk you control have hexproof from converted mana cost 3 or less.
Permanents you control untap during each untap step.
[3/3]

Notes: 3-color identity, legendary, greater+minor race. Bountess of Rivers is something that a lot of Merfolk aspire to be; hard to hit, and easy to slip by, while never really giving your opponent a chance to catch you unguarded. She flies in case your opponent has no islands, but if they do, she's unblockable. She is hard to hit with the small-time kill spells, which would make her stronger in Constructed, but more easily answered in Limited, so she doesn't horribly skew games. She untaps all your stuff each untap step. Very powerful ability befitting a 4cmc legendary creature of 3 colours. She's also helping her people, making them also hard to hit, and untapping them as well. All in all, feels very Merfolk-angel-ish.

Not sure if I have enough time to think of something though. If it is past the end time, then just end the round.

Due to the late notice, I can extend the deadline to 5PM MST today, if you need it. The last round will be 48 hours long, so an hour's difference shouldn't make as much of an impact.
