I’ll try the hound

I didn’t know you were writing the story in real time, thought you had prewritten win and lose story for each totem

May I challenge the Dragon Totem? I suppose I'm technically still challenging the Pegasus totem, but I promise I shan't edit it until you've completed the grading.

And if there's anything we can do to make this easier besides just be patient, please let us know. You've got a great contest going here. But I know how hard it can be to finish things, believe me.

Once I've graded your Pegasus card I can send you the Dragon criteria.

Here are a couple things you all can do to make it easier:
  • Be patient. :P
  • Including the totem you're challenging in your post is super helpful to give me the context of where the design is coming from.
  • Design to your absolute best each time. The better your designs, the more points you'll get, and the shorter the contest will be. :)

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know, I need to reorganize the Current Failures sblock in the original post. I've been having a hard enough time keeping up with the entries that I haven't been able to get around to other optimizations. Ultimately the grading is what keeps the contest moving, so that's what I prioritized.

Yeah, I was writing them on the fly. I realized after the fact that it would have been worthwhile to write them all ahead of time, and a couple of times I literally copied and pasted the failure story from a previous failure.

Alright, I'm gonna try to crank out some more grades. Good luck folks!

Well look at that — the whole board has now been revealed! For those who are curious, here's the number of points that are still available:

  • 1 point totems — 11 points
  • 4 point totems — 24 points
  • 7 point totems — 28 points
  • 10 point totems — 10 points
  • Total points — 73 points

That's quite a lot of points still up for grabs, so it's still anyone's game. :)

Ideologize - :w:
Enchantment - Aura
Enchant enchantment
Enchanted enchantment has indestructible.
What began as merely a good idea soon became a right, and eventually became a bad idea that no one was willing to challenge.

As an FYI, I reorganized the Current Failures sblock in the opening post. Hopefully this will help you guys to more easily determine which totems you can still challenge.

Meh, can't believe I missed that typo. As for the name being iffy, I got it from binary numbers (000 to 111) and it turns out that binary also means composed of two things so I think it fits.

Kinda guessed the Hydra's criteria but still, giving Hydra a try.

Second, these are way cooler (and better) than Auras. The problem with Auras is that removing the target results in the loss of a card. Imbue is designed in such a way that the only loss if the target is removed is some mana, which is an acceptable fail state.


I also like it, but I don't understand how it works if the target is removed?
