A few years ago I ran a contest/game about the Simic Combine. Here is the original link if you are so inclined: http://community.wizards.com/content/fo ... ic/3633651. AzureShade won, with Detektazoline a hairs breadth away.

GM_Champion had originally ran a contest that involved giving us two creature types and us attempting to design cards that best combined the two types. His contest was short lived as it quickly devolved as Champions threads tended to do, but I loved the content and so took up the torch. The game/contest proved to be a lot of fun. I thought, since its been long enough for me to forget why I don't have the time and energy required to run a contest, that I should start it up again! This time it will be for the Izzet League instead.

The Fine Print


You are a lowly denizen of Ravnica. Struggling for survival in the maze of streets and broken dreams is all you've known. One day, while digging around in a dumpster behind a large building covered with manacoils you can came across what appeared to be a cathode tube and some frayed wiring. Fiddling for a moment, you managed to get the cathode to explode with enough force that a member of the Izzet League noticed you and offered you a job lubing up some pipes. If you do a good enough job, there might be some gold in it for you.

Round one: Create a creature card that has a humble beginning but shows capacity for greatness in The Izzet League.

That sounds more like a comedy.

Grading is complete so far. Some very solid entries. I will wait for a bit to see if anyone else wants to post, but if I don't see anything new after lunch I'll post results and start the next round. No point in letting it sit for no reason.

Just in case you graded mine early, I switched it around a bit. Instead of having the reveal as a cost, I made it a requirement...I think its simpler that way...I think.

I think I got it. If you see any issues, let me know and I'll re-judge.
