Semifinals


I encourage you, dear voter, to peruse those at your leisure if you haven't been following along, especially the Quarterfinals and Semifinals entry, as the prompts for those were to give a taste of the flavor and mechanics, respectively, of the set they're designing for here.

Finals


It all comes down to this, most glorious combatants! As the decade winds to a close, so too does our contest. I'd like to thank everybody who came along on this journey.

Building on the work you did for your set in the Quarterfinals and Semifinals, I'd like you to bring it all together with a group of five cards:

• A Legendary creature
• A non-Legendary creature
• An artifact or enchantment
• An instant or sorcery
• A land…

with the stipulation that you may replace any one of these five slots with a Planeswalker card if you so choose.

— Exile Keju. Create a legendary colorless 15/15 Djinn Eldrazi Horror creature token named Aj-Keju with protection from non-planeswalkers.





May the best designer win.

I thought judges were supposed to be impartial, and now you're saying you want JV to win.

haven't read through them all yet but thanks to the designers for both replacing the same criterion with the planeswalker. makes cross-comparison way easier.

Was it ever explained why Krixix is Chandra, or was it a typo?

Thank you to all the judges, to everyone I competed with, to Parad for hosting, and to Cato for meeting me in the finals!

It's an honor to be a Pro Tour winner -- it's been a resolution of mine for some years now, and it feels good to have seen it through to the end. Love you all, and see you next time as a judge!

XO,
JV

Was originally designed by me to be a Chandra pw, but I decided to go with a more plane-appropriate flavor. I changed the name, but apparently forgot the subtype.
