FINAL STANDINGS for the IZZET LEAGUE


Congratulations to Curious for winning and for everyone else that played, either right to the bitter and long overdue end, or who just dropped in a few designs and left. I had a ton of fun with this one and might even run another guild in the future when I forget how much work is it to properly judge a contest of this size.

You are indeed! If you can sacrifice all your copies of The Firemind, then everything will revert back to being whatever it is! HUGELY IMPORTANT! This is why the final sacrifice ability flickers all your stuff, so it's not on the battlefield for at least a moment, just time enough to stop being The Firemind. EDIT AGAIN: It also gives the "target player draws" cards ability, so with enough copies of the Firemind, you'll just force your opponent to draw their deck and win (though since you can only activate three a turn, this is, at most, 9 cards per turn).

The "win more" is debatable, since a pyroclasm gives you 2* (the number of creatures on the battlefield) to work with.
At any rate, congrats CuriousHeartless and thank you, Dudibus, for providing an experience I had not had since Noddegamra's Path of the Planeshaper.

And thus an era comes to a close.
Yariums design willat a minimum draw 3 cards and play 2 permanents for free. Well, assuming you have permanent cards. It could hit 4 pretty easy and still Un-Firemind them. Or you could just draw 9 cards a turn (but have no creatures or kill spells to defend yourself with). Or mill for 3. Let's the actual least impressive thing. I think it's a superzany Johnny card in the Izzet style.
CuriousHeartless still deserved the win though.

*"To YMTC it up" means to design cards that have value mostly from a design perspective. i.e. you would put them in a case under glass in your living room and visitors could remark upon the wonderful design principles, with nobody ever worring if the cards are annoying/pointless/confusing in actual play
