Sorry for the delay folks, but what you've all been waiting for is back! I may not be as alive as when I started this contest, but it's still the same game. Heck, I even copy/pasted most of the instructions!

THIS!
IS!
A!
CONTEST!
AND ANYBODY CAN JOIN (until the deadline passes)!

The story so far:
When we last left off (about a billion years ago), our intrepid hero Blick Winkel, WOTC sanitation technician extraordinaire had just finished replacing the card files he accidentally deleted from Mark Rosewater's computer. Whew, that was a close one!
Blick takes one last look at his handiwork before retiring for the night- and comes to a horrible realization- he overwrote the wrong card files! Instead of filling in blank card slots he overwrote existing cards! Blick searches the computer for the "undo button" but to no avail, his computer skills just aren't up to the task. Looks like Blick's night's not over yet.


Criteria - Submit a design matching one of these card descriptions from the Multiverse database:

Card A - About time MTG had a proper Ooze lord. Makes for a great uncommon in limited. I also like how the ability it gives other oozes feels, you know, ooze-like.

Card B - A rare Avatar type creature that costs exactly two mana of one colour and two mana of another colour. (for example )

Card C - There's no notes on this card, just an attached image:
Spoiler

from the NGA Art Vault.

Nitty Gritty:
Cut off at 8 entries or Friday night, whichever comes first.
I judge on both flavour and mechanics.
Winner gets their card done up in MSE with real art and everything! Also they get a free video game on Steam! Also they get to be a winner!
Prize list:

Your entries will effect the development of the "Chocolate" set in future contests.

Edit - I can't figure out a way to spoiler that image. Can somebody help me out please?
Thanks Tevish! I totally forgot sblocks even existed.

Use sblock rather than spoiler tags?

Making cards for all three. Just take the top one unless I cross out any EDIT: Ooze lord seems to mainstream. Going with CCD Avatar.

Primal Slime
:2::b::g:
Creature - Ooze [U]
Whenever a creature dies, put a +1/+1 counter on each Ooze you control that dealt damage to it this turn
: Regenerate target Ooze
3/3


Avatar of Despair
:u::u::b::b:
Creature - Avatar [R]
At the beginning of your end step, put a sorrow counter on Avatar of Despair.
At the beginning of each player's upkeep, that player sacrifices a permanent or discards a card for each sorrow counter on Avatar of Despair.
1/4


Orrery Technician

Creature - Human Artificier [U]
:t:: Draw a card. Then, discard a card unless you sacrifice an artifact. If you sacrifice an artifact this way, untap Orrery Technician
"Here goes nothing... again"
1/2

Use that one as my submission... but for kicks, I also had this for the picture:

Whenever you tap an artifact for mana, add one mana of any color to your mana pool.

What confirmed mechanics does Chocolate have already? Like, from the winners list, what can we work with without being caught by R&D for putting in a card that's clearly out of place?
EDIT: Nevermind, I looked it up and we have Champion.

Protobond Ooze
Creature - Ooze
Champion an Ooze (When this enters the battlefield, sacrifice it unless you exile another Ooze you control. When this leaves the battlefield, that card returns to the battlefield.)
Ooze creature cards you own have "Champion and Ooze," and "This creature has the combined power, toughness, and abilities of itself and each creature exiled by it."
2/2

I'd like to think that this is simple enough for uncommon. I could be wrong. :teach:

Tevish the avatar is supposed to two mana of each color. Don't want R&D busting you for deviating from the formula.

I dearly love oozes so...
Amorphous Slime
Creature - Ooze
When ~ enters the battlefield, put x 1/1 ooze creatures onto the battlefield.
Ooze creatures you control gain Absorb X, where x is that creatures toughness.
2/2

Mown and Tevish - you both did the mana cost for your avatars wrong. It's supposed to be AABB. I fixed the criteria wording to be more clear now.

Still looks fine to me.

Yes, I know you want an AABB cost, but making cards that don't fit the criteria is like 10% of my fun in ymtc. On that topic though, could I use (2c) or phy mana in the cost?

We are now at the entry limit. Contest closed.
@Mown: Sure I guess. I kind of assumed that the sot you posted was a typo and you meant to go with an AABB cost. I'll grade you last. You have until then to change your entry.

I was cool with mine until I realized that it makes infinite ETB triggers after a while. Oh well.

I'm not clever enough to think of a better name right now.

I considered "As opposed to a snowball." for flavor text, but decided against it.

I could put that on any card and I would somehow approve of it.
