Hello! Most people in this community would tell you that the YMTC Pro Tour is the among most prestigious contests we have. But how can that be true if it happens every year? If the Olympics were that frequent, we'd all get sick of watching curling and pentathlon. If you really want to impress your Internet friends, you'll win something one-of-a-kind. Something created by a person who hosts contests infrequently, and grades cards slowly. This contest is your chance to make that happen.



The rules are simple: obey my commands. If you do adequately, you'll go along to the next round. If I'm not satisfied with your work, you'll get a warning. I won't tolerate disobedience: two warnings, and you're eliminated. I'll find someone else to do my bidding.

Here is your first command:

Choose two —
• Your card must have exactly one symbol in its mana cost.
• Your card must have exactly two targets or an ability with exactly two targets.
• Your card must have exactly three abilities. (Let's call keywords one ability, so Durkwood Baloth doesn't count.)
• Your card must have exactly four colors in its color identity.

For transparency: I changed the second criterion to promote more diversity. Parad's card is still valid.

At the beginning of your upkeep, if you have one or fewer creature card in your graveyard, you may put it on top of your library. Otherwise, sacrifice ~.

Yeah, that's fine if you don't want to change it.

sorcery speed 'cause otherwise it jangles up on-board combat math way too hard for a 1-drop.

• Your card must have exactly two targets or an ability with exactly two targets.
• Your card must have exactly three abilities. (Let's call keywords one ability, so Durkwood Baloth doesn't count.)


Breaking Point
Instant
Choose one -
  • Target creature gets -3/-0 until end of turn.
  • Destroy target creature if its power 2 or less.
Entwine (Choose both if you pay the entwine cost.)
"Whether despair or defeat comes first is inconsequential."

EDIT: changed wording to work as intended
