hi! I'm bored and wanna judge some more things so I figured I'd make a contest. on the other hand, I'm lazy and don't wanna come up with good criteria, so I find myself in somewhat of a pickle. fortunately, it's not that hard to devise a criteria format and then just iterate actual challenges, so let's do that and pretend I know what I'm doing, 'k?

Premise:

mash-ups. I'll use scryfall to generate three random cards, and then you make something that is inspired by all of them. to be clear, the inspiration can be loose and it does not have to be mechanical. I'll accept basically anything you feel you can reasonably justify. in fact, I may even prefer entries that take their inspiration in unexpected, clever ways instead of just copying a line of rules text from each one. (although also feel free to use rules text from them, I'm not saying don't do that. just don't make an obvious mechanical frankenstein that doesn't make much sense as its own card.) however, if you feel like it's not gonna be obvious, I would advise you to add a (brief) blurb explaining what you took from each of the cards.

This Round's Cards:

make something that draws inspiration from:



I'll leave this open for about a week or so (I'll give y'all 24 hours warning before closing) and then I'll grade 'em, probably on a 1-5 scale but we'll see.

Identity: Male
Preferred Pronoun Set: he/him/his/his/himself
Emrakul's Broodlord
Creature - Eldrazi
Emrakul's Broodlord has base power and toughness equal to the number of colorless or Eldrazi creatures you control.
Whenever you cast a colorless or Eldrazi spell, Emrakul's Broodlord gains annihilator 1 until end of turn.
[*/*]

Name and Type: Ulamog's Crusher
Cost and P/T Ability: Keldon Warlord
Triggered Ability: Orbweaver Kumo

Note: Outside of a deck that can facilitate this card, it is typically a vanilla 1/1. With proper support, though, it can become a big beater that can get multiple instances of Annihilator; 2CC seems like a reasonable cost for that kind of power disparity.

Reach
All creatures block each combat if able.
Creatures you control with reach or defender have deathtouch and indestructible as long as they're blocking.
"A prisoner pleads with bended knee. Between the locksmith and the guard, which one can claim to hold the key?"

3/4

Keldon WarLORD. this one crowns QUEENS, and is meant to be something of a warweaver behind the scenes. def. the loosest connection; the others should be obvious.

The Inwardly Hatched
Creature — Eldrazi Spider (U)
4/7
Emerge
When The Inwardly Hatched emerges, create a number 1/2 green Spider creature tokens with reach equal to the sacrificed creature's toughness.
Reach

Eldrazi Spider with reach — pretty clear that it matches the first and third cards. The second one is a bit more of a stretch, but the warlord counts something and this counts something too. Plus you'd love to have this emerge from your Keldon Warlord.

Voidswarm -
Creature - Spider Spirit
Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell, ~ becomes unblockable until end of turn.
Whenever ~ deals combat damage to a player, create a token that is a copy of ~.
1/1

the connection to cards 1 and 3 should be obvious enough
the connection to card 2 is largely card 2 being about building a wide board and this card being about building a wide board.

hi razor

Eldritch Orb
Artifact
At the beginning of each player's upkeep, that player exiles a card from his or her hand.
When a player has no cards in hand, sacrifice Eldritch Orb. If you do, create a colorless Eldrazi Horror creature token with “This creature’s power and toughness are each equal to the number of face-up cards in exile.”
Staring into its depths, the explorers discover something incomprehensible.

ingest is a useful mechanic, i swear

black primarily for flavour reasons, although i wanted it costed at XYZ for balance reasons. It could have just as easily been red instead of black, and would have fit a lot better with red's pie mechanically.

ulamog inspired both the flavour of the card (eldritch thingstuffs) and the vibe of an unrelenting force swinging at your opponent every turn.
