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.

Logistics

Quarterfinalists

Pairings


Quarterfinals Criteria

New sets and blocks in Magic: the Gathering serve multiple purposes. One of those purposes is to get fresh, new, exciting cards into the hands of Magic players to get them to buy booster packs and make Wizards of the Coast copious amounts of money. Another purpose is to tell a story, and in order to tell a story, you must have a setting. And a classic way to establish the setting of a Magic: the Gathering set is through land cards.

This round, your objective is to design two land cards to help establish the setting of an upcoming set.

The first card must be a legendary land. As is typical of legendary lands, it must be an iconic or significant location in the plot of the set it is in.

The second card must be a part of a five-card cycle. Use this card cycle as a way to visit the various locations of the plane that may not be as crucial to the storyline, but more to describe the general feel of the plane.

You have until Sunday, 11/4 at 23:00 Central to complete your submissions. At that point, I will post a separate thread for each pairing, where the community will vote for their preferred submission in each pairing.

Congratulations to all of you for making it to the quarterfinals, and good luck!

It's a phenomenal pair of cards, but i couldn't help but notice that someone has seen Thor: Ragnarok! :p

fr tho, if we end up facing each other in the semis and i lose there, i'm not even gonna be mad about it. (I'm undefeated in quarters but have never won the semis, so that round is kind of like my Soviet Union in the 1980's Olympics, where the finals are just the Finns)

First of all, who hasn't?

Second, Sakaar was not the inspiration for my world... but now that you mention it, yeah, there are definitely a lot of similarities.
