Down Payment :b::b:ImageImage
Instant
(Image = One opponent chooses a permanent. At the beginning of your next upkeep, that permanent can't activate mana abilties, until your next upkeep after it.)
Destroy target creature.

NOTES:
1. I wish I had a better symbol for this. Something like a ring around a locking symbol with the inside being transparent. (Edit: aborted transparency since it looked weird.)
2. This ability doesn't dictate which opponent gets to lock down your permanents mana. That decision is left to the opponents themselves, and the controller of the spell can't pick what opponent interacts with their mana.
3. Pricing guide: ImageImage = :1:; :1::u:Image = :u::u: ()
4. Triggered abilities are not affected by this ability.

Edit: Thanks Silly.

How out there can we get for this round? Because I have some ideas that are really bordering on (or falling into) Un-Set territory...

Not a new mana symbol.
Not a keyword ability like Convoke that lets you use non-mana resources to pay for things.
Not a new resource like energy counters.
Not an effect like Delve that effectively turns other cards into a mana source.

*cough*

yeah that is an exemplificative list, not an exhaustive one. Transforming as a cost (i.e. downgrading the card) is not something that has been done.

Riorvard is correct. I was giving examples of what could qualify, not the only things that qualify. His card qualifies.

What matters is that something is spent as a resource in a new way.

Oh, after looking back at the card I realized that the transformation was a cost, not a product of the ability.

I will just grab one of the random symbols on the forums to use as a mana symbol.

This is gonna be cancer for mill decks but hey,

Corpsecart Ravager - :passion: :passion:
Artifact Creature - Construct
( :passion: can be paid by or by putting three cards in your graveyard onto the bottom of your library.)
As ~ enters the battlefield, exile your graveyard. For each creature card exiled this way, ~ enters the battlefield with a +1/+1 counter on it.
: ~ gains menace until end of turn.
Within the wastelands of civilization, many automations evolved their directives to a higher purpose.
2/2

Btw, I do like to confirm, are additional costs considered a new way to cast something?

Here's a question, you never said anything so I'm assuming I'm in the good but I was hut by tiredness induced paranoia. My ability uses lands as a resource by letting you exert them for double mana. Obviously lands aren't a new resource for spell casting so is the exert enough to count this as fitting the criteria?

Additional costs depend on the execution. CuriousHeartless, your submission meets the criteria.

I suppose I should mention I can offer prizes for the contest. I don't have a firm plan or anything, but maybe one for the winner of each round and then a 1st, 2nd, 3rd overall prize.
