Thanks to thelemys for the win.

Today's challenge fall's on memorial day, yesterday I did the murph http://www.mensfitness.com/training/endurance/are-you-crazy-enough-do-murph-memorial-day-weekend?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=crazytodomurph took me an hour 52 minutes to do as my mark of respect.

The challenge for memorial day is to create a magic card in honor of murph himself. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_P._Murphy

As always I place emphasis on creativity, printability, balance, flavour will also be graded as well.

Am I reading this correctly? you want to research some family that controls the world...That is a lie. Humans control the world. No one family has such power. Now if you want a card about the end of the world, I can. or do you want something about hiding from the public eye? I can do that. But I will not beseech some unknown entity.

If you don't like the challenge I've created you don't have to take part. I will provide some links to help.

its not about personal like. You want us to take part in the berating of some fictional family agenda that does not exist. Conspiracy theories are one thing. I am ok with that but it sounds like you want us to put down this family for no reason at all except because you think it's funny.

Is it enough in the thema?
You should have made it a "banker card contest", it would have been less cleaving.

It does not appear to be very popular, if by tuesday it's still generating little interest I will change the competition a little. If other people are unhappy with the contest please speak up.

You say to avoid antisemitism, but what else could possibly happen when you encourage baseless conspiracy theories about the Rothschilds? Even the introduction to the contest states that the Rothschilds "are the most poweful [sic] and rich family in the world." Maybe you don't realize that is a conspiracy theory itself. Sure, there are wealthy Jewish people in the world, but that doesn't mean they exert control over global economic and political systems. You are merely propagating antisemetic theories that were designed to disenfranchise Jews when they became successful in the only business available to them: banking. In medieval Europe, Jews were literally barred from other occupations because they were considered subhuman. To then resent them for doing what they had to do to survive is absurd. Do you also believe that they drank the blood of Christian babies and secretly have horns and claws?

Yes, I'm Jewish. Yes, I found this contest to be extremely offensive. Magic League is the last place I expected to find such ignorance and antisemitism.

Ditto, I suggest changing it to something EDH based.

Sorry Greenbear, I had come up with several ideas but they were either noncreature spells (End of Days) that made some obscure reference to the family or creatures that "donated artwork" or "invested." Sometimes a challenge works out, sometimes it doesn't.

The conspiracy does not really have much to do with the religion, I asked people to avoid that part. I'm sorry that you found it offensive. I think the conspiracy has more do with there vast wealth and secrecy about it than anything else.

Like i said i left it open, you could have made them good or bad, or neither, in terms of their involvement, I said creativity was key, I was looking for good conclusions to the conspiracy. There's so much information if you look for it on the rothchilds, which is why I thought it would make a fun challenge.

I will change it however, I think it's better we deviate away from banking conspiracies so I will make it about memorial day.
