The first three people to post a card in this contest are contestant 1, 2 and 3 respectively.

Once we have three contestants, anyone may vote (using the poll) for one or two of the cards you like. I will not vote, but I will break a tie if there is one when the time for voting is over.

If you win PBC1 you may not enter PBC2 or 3. Similarly if you win PBC2 you may not enter PBC3. This is because after three rounds the winners of each round will compete against each other in the PBC Finals.


Criteria: Make a creature that is either a Lammasu, Octopus or Hag. (No changelings).


Here are the three entries for this round, in order.
Medicine Woman
Creature - Hag (R)
If damage would be dealt to another creature you control, prevent that damage. Put a -1/-1 counter on that creature.
The black drink may keep you from death, but it will not save your life.
2/2

Steady Tentacles

Vigilance
Whenever Steady Tentacles becomes tapped, tap eight target permanents. They do not untap until Steady Tentacles does.

Death by puzzle.

2/3

Buried Guardian
Creature - Elemental Lammasu (R)
Flying
Whenever a face-down creature you control blocks, you may turn that creature face up.
Morph
4/5

OK, that's three. I have copied them into the first post so people can see and vote.

Maybe three entries was too few. I can't put up the second thread for five days since we have to see who wins this one first.

I voted for Buried Guardian because it tickles my Spike sensibilities. I think it's the most fun out of all of these to play with.

I voted for woman and tentacles, but I could be convinced to switch it around. I wasnt a big fan of any of them, but I felt woman and tentacles were trying to push the envelope a bit more, so I forgive part of my dislike.

Medicine Woman: Really powerful. This is probably too powerful in Aggro. I'd like to see it costed around 5/6 to put it out of aggro range. Right now, it basically gives your whole team Indestructible. Aggro will usually have them between 5-7 life on turn four. You play this, and the opponents chump blocks no longer matter, you can keep throwing bodies at them. At least at a higher CMC you have to choose between an efficient body or this cards ability.

Steady Tentacles: Way too powerful. It pretty much reads ":1:: Creatures you control are unblockable." It also has the advantage of locking them out of mana. I am charmed by requiring an outside card to tap, and by the flavor, but it's not hard to turn this on. Singing Bell Strike makes your card a one sided Wrathgeddon.

Buried Guardian: It's super efficient as a 4/5 flier for 5, plus it's scarier to attack into than Master of Pearls. I find it's ability a little at odds with it's body. I would rather cast this face up and start flying to victory. At that point it's ability is a bit moot. Free flips are always good, but the surprise board wipe is what you want. It's essentially Serra Angel that can't block fliers. I don't know...I hate to say it, but it kinda bores me. If I were running a contest, this would win, but I'm voting and my vote often goes toward potential+flavor.

bump for votez

@POS I most often just try to make cards that feel realistic, play well, and have some feasible mechanics-flavor connection. I also sometimes make a card that I wish had been in an existing environment/set and Buried Guardian is one of those (goes into Khans of Tarkir.)

I get it Metal...your card was SO CLOSE to the card I felt was missing (turn face up face down)...maybe that's why I'm biased against it lol. My Johnny is punching my Spike in the face and making it cry.

EDIT: Bah...I have to vote on overall design...

We need more people on the Phantom Nomad nostalgia bandwagon.

See...I saw it more as a reverse Infect that had an unfortunate Phantom Nantuko effect.

My card is a lot different from something that backslides or ixidrons. But I think it's likely something that does one of those effects will show up in Khans block sooner or later.
