Overall Standings


Unlocked Titles


ROUND THREE: Snagglerot has been working you extra hard the last couple of weeks. He seems nervous. He's certainly been watching the harvesting a lot more closely, almost like he was looking for something. But the farm is moving along well. One day, just going about your hooking and pruning, you here screams from the next field over. Fodder and sifters are streaming away from it, moving through your field frantically trying to get away from something. That's when you hear the roar. Not sure where your courage is coming from, you shamble along with the Overseers towards the commotion.

Thrashing around madly in the midst of one of the fields is a huge insect creature with antenna and massive claws tearing up the farm and the fodder that was too slow to get away. The carnage is terrible. Snagglerot stops beside you and breathes one word through gnashed teeth. "Excellent."

CRITERIA: Create a Kraul.

As a reminder, neru will not be up for a double promotion next round, but if he produces the favorite card of the round, no one else will be either. Other than that it is open to anyone.

10,000-Year Kraul
Creature — Insect Soldier (C)
When 10,000-Year Kraul enters the battlefield, reveal cards from the top of your library until you reveal a card named 10,000-Year Kraul. Put that card into your hand and the rest in your graveyard. If you don't reveal a card named 10,000-Year Kraul, shuffle your graveyard into your library instead.
"The devkarin, the terratogen, they have fought for dominance of the Golgari for ten thousand years and all they have done is weaken themselves for us."
2/2

10,000 Year as a reference to 17-year cicadas and because the Guildpact is about 10,000 years old.

Whenever a creature you control dies, you may sacrifice a land you control. When you do, search your library for up to two basic lands and put them onto the battlefield.
"The Golgari share but one important belief with the Boros; the best resource for expansion is new recruits."

I have graded up to this point, but the round will still be up for the rest of the day at least.

Undercity Umberhulk
Creature - Insect Berserker
When Undercity Umberhulk enters the battlefield, exile up to X creature cards from each graveyard, then put a number of +1/+1 counters on this creature for each creature exiled this way, then Undercity Umberhulk fights up to one creature you don't control.
There's often a danger in overfeeding a young kraul too much sentient flesh...
3/3

Kraul Thoughtpicker
Creature — Insect Shaman (U)
1/2
Deathtouch
When Kraul Thoughtpicker enters the battlefield or is scavenged, look at target opponent's hand and choose a nonland card from it. Exile that card until target creature dies.
Scavenge
"The easiest secret to keep is the one you didn't know you had."

A few design notes:
  • Scavenge is sorcery speed. No draw step shenanigans with this guy (blink effects aside).
  • Memory issues can be avoided by tucking the exiled card underneath the creature you targeted.
  • You can target this creature or the creature you targeted with Scavenge, so you'll nearly always have a creature to target with the ability for creature light matchups.
  • The name heralds back to Thoughtpicker Witch.
