Preferred Pronoun Set:
I wanted to give the Pro Tour (and myself) some room to breathe while I was running the Open Entry Rounds. Now that we're coming in up on the Finals, I thought it would be a good time to bring this back. TP has volunteered to pick up the slack for anything I can't keep up with from an administrative standpoint, but hopefully I should be good.

I'll leave the voting up through the weekend at least, since I'm starting this up again in a way that warrants a rebuilding of momentum. The winner will set another freeform criterion, as well as the first for the Red thread. After that, only the artifact/land thread will be left, and once we have all seven threads going, it'll only take a few more rounds to get all the cards we need!

Please vote for whomst you think made the best cards. I've also opened voting in the Green, White, Blue, and Black threads in the Community Sets forum.

ParadOxymoron - Wonderweaver. Was going to go with Cato, but I think that card is rare, not uncommon?

How wondrous that this card should be added to the spoiler!

Next Round: Make a blue common or uncommon that synergizes with LilyStorm's Starstill card. As of now, the only blue card that mentions upkeeps is a drawback.

It's occurring to me that the best way to use Lily's card—

LilyStorm wrote:
Starstill
Instant
This turn, each main phase and combat phase are replaced with an extra upkeep step.
The night seemed to last forever, then we realized a week had passed.


is to cast it on THEIR turn and get a lot of each-upkeep, or curse-y effects, off on them, so that they skip their main and combat phases, but you're still getting an upside. "your upkeep" is still cool b/c casting it on yourself is always an option, but just something to keep in mind that generally you're gonna be wanting to cast this on your opponent's turn so that you can maximize on THEIR upkeeps.


Also, don't forget the color threads! :)

Blue
Black
Red
Green

And, still waiting for TP on the White thread's prompt, so when that's up, that one too. Winner of this round gets to launch the Colorless thread, and then we'll have all seven going at once, so it'll only take a few more rounds to fill the set!

I had forgotten that there was a competition in this thread. Well, for starters it gave me reason to rework my green thread submission. Let's see what else I can come up with that makes use of upkeeps. 3 extra upkeeps for one turn for 4 mana. Got to make an effect that will justify that at common or uncommon in blue. Also, I have the option of punishing opponents on their upkeeps.

Idea 1-
At the beginning of your upkeep investigate. At the end of your turn sacrifice an artifact.
Sort of like Puppet Conjurer. Heck, a de-artifacted, colorshifted Conjurer would work here. With Starstill active you get a net positive off this guy without having to kill him.

Idea 2-
At the beginning of each opponent's upkeep tap a thing.
At the beginning of each player's upkeep they tap an untapped thing of theirs - eh, pretty odd at uncommon.

Chill Slime
Creature - Ooze (Uncommon)
At the beginning of each opponent's upkeep, tap target creature that player controls.
3/3

I vote for shadow amber, though it'd have to be a Rare.

I vote Shadow Amber's card. Could use a cost & stat boost at uncommon, or rsrity change, but \i'm not sure it's broken where it is.

shadow amber, you're up! I'm gonna leave this at uncommon. It's not that much more rare-feeling than Treasure Trove or Jayemdae Tome, for example.

Please set two criterion: one here, for one of the following slots:

SLOTS REMAINING wrote:
White:
2 Commons
1 Uncommons

Blue:
3 Commons

Black:
4 Commons

Red:
1 Commons
3 Uncommons

Green:
3 Rares


and one to start off the seventh and final thread, Colorless. There are no rarity restrictions there, as they won't throw off the distribution between the colors. (You can make the freeform prompt for this thread colorless as well if you'd like)

The full spoiler as it stands may be found here if you'd like to orient yourself. (but seriously, no pressure :P )~

[Make] a black common that helps enable a set mechanic

A quick review of set mechanics:

Mastery: As long as you control an artifact, a creature, and an enchantment, <effect>.
Clues.
Sylvan: Treefolk, Forests, and enchanted permanents are sylvan
Oblation: Whenever a [card type] enters the battlefield, you may tap ~. If you do, [effect].
Engrave <cost>: <cost>, Exile this <instant or sorcery> card from your hand: Create a 2/2 colorless Golem artifact creature token. When it dies, you may cast this spell without paying its mana cost. Engrave only as a sorcery.

The color distribution of these mechanics is:

Mastery: 2 White, 1 Blue, 3 Black, 0 Red, 2 Green, 2 Colorless
Clues: 3 White, 4 Blue, 0 Black, 0 Red, 1 Green, 4 Colorless
Sylvan: 4 Green
Oblation: 2 White, 3 Green
Engrave: 2 White, 3 Blue, 3 Red

Baleful Presence
Enchantment - Aura
Enchant Creature
Enchanted creature has menace.
Whenever enchanted creature deals combat damage to a player, investigate.
Only one person should be asking questions.

Not sure about the cost, but this feels like it could be a low powered uncommon at 2b or so.

Target creature gets -1/-3 until end of turn. If it's sylvan, it gets +3/+1 until end of turn instead. (Treefolk, Forests, and enchanted permanents are sylvan.)
The fungi on the borderlands of Illpyre and Maraka are fickle in the matter of to whom or what they apply their pestilence.
