6, 8, 7 . . . I'm actually surprised I'm in the top 10 at all.

Meanwhile, I'm clearly designing for Dudibus.

I would close judging if it weren't for the fact that I haven't given much thought to next round's criteria, so I'll hold off until tomorrow night. That'll give Mown some time to prepare rankings as well if he wants to.

Mown is really late so his grades should be weighted less :teach:

Mown clearly spent a lot of time really thinking about the designs so his grades should be weighted more.

Razor's point of having my card fetch spells with different names was actually really good.

sorry I just didn't really feel like adding a blue effect to a blue effect made the card green blue even if it was a neat design.
How much the card hit the criteria was a pretty big determinator to whether or not you ended up in the upper or lower half of my list, which means that even if Silly made a completely asinine card design that should never see the light of day, it still scored fairly well because it fit the criteria better than several other competitors. Also worth noting that BelangiaJo and Rubik took a fairly large hit because while their cards technically fit the criteria, they would under normal circumstances be templated as separate effects and I'm not about to hand out any free lunches.

In retrospect the only card I might have wanted higher was Tevish's for hitting the fantasy of WBR really well, even if it was an obvious design space, but I would kind of like him to design something for once that doesn't create a miserable gameplay experience.

also shoutout to JV for, when designing a card for "the perfect marriage between two colors", deciding to make his card weighted towards one color.

If not good, then at least sharp.

Razor sharp, in fact.

So mine was not WU? I'm not sure that w can draw a card each turn or that blue can cast creatures it draws for free.Figured the main issue was how unsinergistic it was for the decks that could run it.

I'm curious as to what I could've done better with mine as well; I attempted to base it on the Primary effects listed for Green and White within the 2017 Mechanical Color Pie:

WotC Article [LINK]

Also, Q; in case a similar criteria appears in another round, would additional timing restrictions count as a miss for the 'one sentence' bit?

As in "activate this ability only any time you could cast a sorcery"? I think that would have been fine, as long as the stuff preceding it was one sentence. Similar to the shuffle clause.

Yes, though specifically in the context of my card, "Cast this spell only during combat after blockers are declared." would have helped avoid skirting around the unblockability portion of protection. Good to know ^_^
