Medicine, corrupts, aura, fear the old blood.

Lifeblood of Altheazar
Legendary Enchantment — Aura (M)
Enchant creature you control
If enchanted creature would die, instead exile it and create Altheazar, a legendary 4/4 white, blue, and black Sphinx Demon creature token with flying, lifelink, and all activated abilities of the exiled card.
"By this rite, you shall escape death, and you and I shall at last be made one."
—Altheazarean cult scripture


Five words or less.

Celestial Harbinger
Creature — Angel (M)
0/5
Flying
Players can't lose life. (Damage causes loss of life.)
"Rejoice, for Elois comes to sanctify your world. I come as her humble messenger to prepare you for the harmonious life you soon will live."


Medicine again, sort of?

Honor-bound Pacifist
Creature — Human Soldier Cleric (R)
5/5
Defender, first strike
If Honor-bound Pacifist would deal damage to a creature, instead prevent that much damage that would dealt to you this turn.
"In my youth, I took an oath to protect the throne. In my maturity, I took an oath to never harm another. In this capacity, I do both."

Amusingly I designed my third card starting with the flavor text.

Didn't really expect to win the final anyway .

Gl to the remaining designers.

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

* The first thing you think of when you see the word [SPOILER]
* Has casting cost 4B and is a 1/2 creature
* Hoses a specific thing.

Sin Feaster
Creature - Demon Shade (R)
Nonbasic lands are Swamps.
: Sin Feaster gets +1/+1 until end of turn.
To those that feed on the darkness of the human heart, there can be no better place than Paliano. And as the High City grows ever taller, the shadows it casts grow ever deeper.
1/2

Corrupt cities are a pretty good flavor representation of dark nonbasic lands, and flavor-wise the Conspiracy setting is about as corrupt as you get. Mechanically, this hoses your opponent's nonbasics, while also benefiting off of your own nonbasics to grow stronger.

* Has an ability that triggers only once.
* Involves a pocket plane adjacent to the main plane. (eg: The meditation realm, the Spirit World, etc)

Silent Plotting
Enchantment (M)
At the beginning of each cleanup step, if no spells have been cast this turn, sacrifice Silent Plotting and take an extra turn after this one.
Bolas slumbers beneath the sea, dreaming of his machinations. He awakens, ready to set his plans into motion.

The blue take on werewolves, punishing your opponent for not doing anything. Unlike werewolves though, who becomes scary furries when not kept in check, if you give Bolas enough undisturbed time to think then really bad things happen.

* From the plane where stone is alive and the ground is made of flesh
* Has extraordinarily good luck

Crimson Vein
Land (U)
: Add .
: Add one mana of any color. Activate this ability only if a player lost life this turn.
As the prospector pulled his pickaxe free, a gush of ruby red was uncovered. Afterwards, only one phrase could be heard throughout the camp. "Boys, we hit the jackpot tonight!"

I really like the idea of golems mining for actual veins in the ground, rather than the mineral veins that us humans mine for.

* Hoses death triggers
* The first thing you think of when you see the word
Spoiler


Infesting Souldrinker
:2::b:
Creature - Worm Horror
If a creature you don't control would die, instead exile it and Infesting Souldrinker, then return it to the battlefield under your control. When you do, it gains "When this creature dies, return an exiled card you own named Infesting Souldrinker to the battlefield".
2/2


* Involves a pocket plane adjacent to the main plane. (eg: The meditation realm, the Spirit World, etc)
* Has an ability that triggers only once.
* Has casting cost and is a 1/2 creature

Raider of Agyrem
:4::b:
Creature - Human Rogue
Flash, Spectacle :1::b:
If you would lose the game and don't have a fate counter, instead you get a fate counter and your life total becomes 5.
"There's cheating death, and then there's cheating death so hard you take him for his house. Seeing where I keep kip, you can guess which one I did."
1/2


* Has extraordinarily good luck
* From the plane where stone is alive and the ground is made of flesh

Fortune Heart
:w::g:
Artifact
:t:, Sacrifice Fortune Heart: Counter target spell or ability if it would destroy a permanent you control.
"One of the diggers mined up a curiosity the other day. It's still beating, which we take to be a good omen." - Foreman Terl of the Sharain's Tumor Excavation.

* Is one of the causes of the end of the world

Odette, Queen of the Dead
:3::b::b::b:
Legendary Creature - Zombie God
Forecast - :b::b:, reveal Odette from your hand: Seach each player's library for a creature card and put those cards into their owners graveyards. Each player whose library was searched shuffles their library. (Activate this ability only during your upkeep and only once each turn.)
When Odette enters the battlefield, an opponent separates all creature cards in graveyards into two piles. Return all the cards in the pile of your choice to the battlefield under your control, then return each card in the other pile to the battlefield under a random opponent's control.
"The Eternal Prison's Warden shall throw open its gates, unleasing the armies of the End." - Prophecy of the Alfar, Verse III
7/5


* Is a delicious fruit, such as has been sconed
* Uses poison counters
* Has three colors in its identity

Fruit of the Tainted Paradise
:b::r::g:
Enchantment
At the beginning of your upkeep, you get a poison counter and discard your hand, then draw a card for each poison counter you have.
What once brought eternal life and heavenly wisdom now brings creeping death and infernal inspiration.


* Is a duplicitous sheep, such as has been shorned
* Becomes a different card type

Skittish Springjack
:1::w:
Creature - Goat
Whenever Skittish Springjack blocks or becomes blocked, remove it from combat.
When Skittish Springjack is dealt damage, transform it.
Doyo's flock was too clever for his liking, and always knew to hide when the time came to shear them.
1/3
//
Cloak of Kith and Kin
Artifact - Equipment
Equipped Creature gets +0/+3. Prevent all noncombat damage that would be dealt with it.
Equip :2:
"Springjack Wool shorn when the sun is lowest in the sky is best for protection against all weathers" - The Book of Kith and Kin

As a Phyrexian agent, I appreciate that remark!

In all seriousness, I think that speed is probably one of my strengths as a designer: I can very rapidly get an idea for a card and throw up a functional version. On the other hand, I suck at editing and iteration.

May the best designer win :cool:
