Welcome to the fifth season of Pro Tour: You Make the Card! This is your annual opportunity to put your fantasy fantasy card design skills to the test for a chance at internet immortality. Over the next several months, this competition will push you to be the best designer you can be to see which of you can join the ranks of YMTC legends.

Current Standings


Round 6

Multicolored sets have always been exciting. Slamming two (or more) colors together often results in much more powerful effects than you could get in monocolored cards with similar effects.

The cards I tend to appreciate the most are the elegant, one line cards that gloriously exemplify what two (or more) colors can do together. Vindicate, Temporal Spring, and Glimpse the Unthinkable are all prime examples of this. They have a single line of text, and yet that line of text feels like the perfect marriage between the two colors it represents.

Your objective this round is to do similarly. Design a multicolored card that captures why it's each of its colors with a non-keyword ability that is one sentence. Your card may have more than one ability, but if the card had no other abilities, it should still mechanically feel like each of its colors is justified.

You have until 20 September 2018 at 22:00 CT to post your submissions. Best of luck to you!

Oblivion
:3::w::r::b:
Sorcery
Exile all permanents.
When the mighty Planeswalkers of old were truly roused to fury, the devastation was beyond comprehension -- No wreckage was left behind, no lingering testament to tell of their foes. Entire worlds simply and silently ceased to exist, or perhaps never even existed in the first place.

No, this hasn't been printed, I checked -- the closest thing is Apocalypse. Nor has "Destroy all permanents", for that matter, but the essence of :w::r::b:'s greatness is "Get rid of absolutely anything and everything forever", which demands exile.

"Your card may have more than one ability, but if the card had no other abilities, it should still mechanically feel like each of its colors is justified."

This line confuses me.

also doesn't that contradict with this? "Design a multicolored card that captures why it's each of its colors with a non-keyword ability that is one sentence"

I'm still a bit sick with the flu or something but can you make multiple abilities in one sentence that aren't keyword abilities?

basically I think the point is you can make a creature that has flying or whatever and not have that be your one sentence.

What razorborne said. So your card can have more than one ability, but one of those abilities must justify all of the card's colors.

Pull from the Void
Sorcery (R)
Search your library for a permanent card and put it onto the battlefield phased out, then shuffle your library.
From thought to reality in a deafening whisper.


Rulings regarding this card and phasing:
Spoiler


Q: Please let me know if this card violates the non-keyword ability requirement and I'll design a new one. Nothing actually has or gets phasing as an ability, but I'm utilizing the mechanic (similarly to Reality Ripple). Thanks!

To my knowledge playing around with phasing, that will work, but it will also phase right in on your next untap step despite not having phasing. Of course, at 7 mana, that might be fine.

I am here to submit a card for this contest that is currently going on.

Sovereign Claim
Sorcery (R)
Untap all lands and gain control of them until end of turn.
"It is a king's nature to rule." - Arnest IV, on the occupation of the outlands

Totally not sure what colors this effect actually should be, but flavor-wise I felt that the sort of ruthless colonialism fit very well into BUG. Mechanic-wise, you have somewhat similar cards like Herald of Leshrac, Elvish Archdruid, Annex in these colors.

At the beginning of your end step reveal the top four cards of your library, you may put a creature card with converted mana cost 2 or less revealed this way onto the battlefield, then put the other cards at the bottom of your library in any order.

Echoes of Ignition

Instant
Search your library for up to X instant or sorcery cards with converted mana cost 1 and cast them without paying their mana costs. Then shuffle your library.
All things are good in explosion.

I take "Then shuffle your library" is one of those exemptions Q mentioned?

Conclave's Lullaby
Instant
You, creatures you control, and planeswalkers you control gain protection from creatures until end of turn.
"Rest easy," cooed Emmara. "You are safe with us now."

EDIT: Rationale; this is essentially a one-sided super fog that doubles as an alpha strike or combat trick enabler on your own turn. Was debating on making it GWU but who the heck would go three colors for a fog effect? Plus the unblockable perk can be justified as super-trample (G) partnered with prevent combat damage (W); same for casting this after blockers are declared.

OlahZep, your card fits the criteria. Flying doesn't meet the criteria, but "Creatures you control with flying have haste" does fit.

Riorvard, that one ability is technically two sentences, but I think it fits the spirit of the criteria, so I guess I'll let it slide.

They recently printed some cards that don't explicitly state shuffle your library because its implied with every search

I mean you could just use a comma instead of a period too. they do it both ways.

Hey it's Eminent Domain! IMO, the effect can be mono-red, because the effect is a) Ramp, b) Temporary land destruction, and c) Gaining control of stuff.

I don't think this is true.

Fun fact, there is a single card in Magic that lets you search your library without shuffling it. (Well, technically two cards if you count un-sets.)
