So, Bailey isn't showing up, so I thought I'd go ahead so this doesn't die.

Create a card: Round 6.5
General rules:

1. Judge posts the card criteria;

2. People make card(s) based on the criteria;

3. Judge picks a winner; and

4. The winner becomes the judge for the next round.
Addendum: Unless Bailey comes back and judges his set before it's done, in which case winner of /that/ does.

---
In order for the judging to not be totally random, this is what I will be looking at.

Rarity - 5pts - does this card make sense as a rare? Does it have a powerful, flashy effect?

Flavor - 5 pts - does the flavor match the effects? Is it in the right color? Does the flavor text help instead of hinder?(There should be flavor text on a card with one line of rules text)

Fun - 5 pts - would this card be fun to play with? would it create fun interactions with other cards?

Originality - 5 pts - does this card do something that we haven't seen before?

Clarity - 10 pts - Is it easy to tell what this card does? It is a big run-on sentence?

---

Rules for Round 6.5

1. A rare or mythic rare.

2. Exactly one sentence of rules text.

Anything which does not have precisely one sentence of rules text or is clearly not a rare will automatically not win.

If you just want keyword abilities separated by commas, you can do that for your one sentence, but I imagine it'll make it hard to be innovative.

Judging in 24 hours. Or a little after.

Loxodon Warmaster | 2GW
Creature - Elephant General (Mythic Rare)

(Generals count as soldiers)

Cumulative Upkeep {G/W}
Fiery Spirit (If you control a red creature, this creature gains haste)
Band of Brothers (Whenever this creature attacks, up to X attacking creatures get banding where X is the number of age counters on this creature.)
Determination (When this creature is put into the graveyard from the battlefield, return it to play with a -1/-1 counter for each time it has entered the battlefield this game. If the number of -1/-1 tokens is equal to or greater than this creature's toughness when it goes to the graveyard, remove this creature from the game instead.)
Vigiliance
Battlecry
Banding
Horsemanship

1/5

"Even if out-manned, even if out-numbered: hold the lines, never back down, render the enemy asunder."
- Loxodon Nursery Rhyme


-------------------------------------------------------------------

Defining the cost of this card:

Notice that while this card has a crap-ton of keyword abilities, it has 3 major draw-backs that balance this card out. First is it's rarity. Second, cumulative upkeep. And thirdly, it's power and toughness are only 1/5, which is amazingly chumpish for both green and white creatures.

Other drawbacks that are less obvious include the manacost, which makes you have two different types of mana, and this creature is still weak against Wither, Infect, Black Sun's Zenith, etc. etc. etc.

A better name for this card would be "Easy Money".

search your library for a planeswalker and exile it. You may use one of it's abilities regardless of cost.



the ruling for gideon would be that if you use the 0 ability it would activate however gideon is not on the battlefield so he would become a creature in exile.
Moral, don't chose gideon.
