I found the anonymized list to be very helpful last year — I understand why you like it that way. It's no problem.

The downside is that I more or less can't read the thread while it's ongoing, and I'm not into that.

That's true — as the guy running the contest, it was almost impossible for me not to know who designed each card, even with the anonymized list. Would you rather I not worry about doing that in the future?

Yeah you can spare yourself the effort, I probably won't be using it.

just finished my initial pass, and it looks like this round was a hard one. very few stand-outs, and some of my favorite designs felt like they missed the criteria. not a lot of duds, either, though: most things wound up roughly in the middle. gonna be tricky to sort everything out.

:duel:

Here's a trick I use to save me effort- just rank them reverse alphabetically by last letter in the user name. It's unintuitive enough that nobody's caught on to me yet!

I've sorted four out of the five groups. just need to grade the mid-tier ones, but that's the largest so probably the hardest. grades hopefully done today though?

actually that didn't take as long as I thought it would, most of the decisions were pretty clear.

Manafying Glass
Artifact
, : Add one mana of any color.
Glitter - Whenever a source you control produces mana that can be of any color, ~ deals 1 damage to any target.
There are more efficient ways to harvest blinkmoths, but none so satisfying.


Motivations:
- 5 colours is already its own reward: you have access to all the strengths of all colours and multicoloured spells.
- So instead of focussing on a player's achievement of 5-colours, I focussed on the way you get there: mana fixing.
- This fits nicely into an artifact block: First,artifacts are great colour fixers because they're colourless.
- Second, some of the most iconic artifacts (cf Lotuses) in Magic's history have fixed mana.
- The wording of the ability is hard. If was lazy I'd just have used , but I'm not sure how interacts with e.g. cards that produce two mana of any one color.


Yes please!

Turns out razorborne took TP's advice about ordering submissions reverse alphabetically by last letter of username. :)

Curious for comments.
