Bola Binding
Instant
Bola Binding deals 2 damage to target attacking or blocking creature. At the end of turn, you may pay . If you do, gain control of that creature.
Minwaean honor battles are less about winning and more about proving one's strength and cunning. Nevertheless, it is still considered bad form to switch sides, except for certain traditional circumstances.

I don't believe rewriting the criterion mid-round is kosher. I've decided not to change my card. I put too much love into it. I leave my fate up to the judges.

if you make a card you can play in a mono-colored deck that has extra use in a multi-colored deck then I am personally okay with that, but I am only one mere judge

Thanks for the prompt clarification on the round criteria/intent, as well as the deadline extension. Excited to keep brewing and refining!

I like my submission, but point of order: Court Hussar-type effects meet the criteria, do they not?

Guys, we aren't even a day into the round, and I gave you that day back as a result of how vague my initial wording was. I apologize for that and will do a better job with making my criteria clear in the first pass in the future. All I ask is that you be patient with me as I do the best I can to run this contest.

To clarify further, the ability must use mana of a different color. That does not mean add mana, or cost reduce mana. It means you spend that mana on that card, or your card somehow benefits from that mana being in your mana pool.

Ultimately, the intent is that the card can stand alone, but it is better if it is supported by another color of mana.

Yup, that kind of card is an excellent example of what we're going for here.

i feel like i already failed. i want to play but kinda pointless. the point system is harsh.

it's not as bad as you think. the harsh gradient means that it rewards a couple stand-out performances over consistent mid-level scores, so even pretty deep into the contest you have the ability to make it to the top by winning a round or two. last year, for instance, the cut-off for top 7 was 15 points, which means winning a single round gets you a third of the way there. basically everyone's still in this.

on the criteria: I kinda get both sides here. I think it's reasonable for Q to clarify the intent, and I don't mind the change. I do understand Parad's issue too, though: it sucks to put a lot of work into something only to have the rug pulled out from under you. sure, there's plenty of time left to make a new thing, but it's frustrating to have to when you made something that fit the criteria as it existed at the time. if Parad leaves her card as-is, I don't intend to hold it against her, but since it was the only submission I saw that met the first criteria but not the second one (ELC's original one, in my estimation, didn't meet either.) I'll stick to the new one for everyone else. I don't think the change is unreasonable but I don't think it's necessarily fair to throw out Parad's submission either. that's my two cents, anyway.

:duel:

That's a fair assessment, razorborne. Thanks for your input.

I think Q already has a better way of stating the original criterion:

"Ultimately, the intent is that the card can stand alone, but it is better if it is supported by another color [snip]"

My original design failed to meet this criterion as it only worked equally as well in monocolor as it did in multicolor; multicolor would just have more options. However for the entries using permanents of other colors and such, they should meet the spirit of the original criterion given this clarification.

Not going to argue for a further extension however; recreating a freshly made design is easier than creating a brand new one; merely that the original criteria be considered (reworded as above) over a different criterion so that others that followed the original criterion in the first place can have that design space to work with.
