Diabolic Creation 3BB

Sorcery - Rare

You may sacrifice two creatures rather than pay Diabolic Creation's mana cost.

Return target creature from a graveyard to the battlefield.


Heh, this is probably really broken. Oh well, I like it. I'm not sure if it's better or worse than Dread Return. A

Giant of Olympus | 2GGGG
Creature - Giant (Rare)

Shroud

You may discard 2 non-land, non-creature cards rather than pay Giant of Olympus's Casting Cost.

Whenever a player casts a non-creature card, sacrifice Giant of Olympus unless you pay 2.

5/6


Hrmmmm... the flavour is pretty awful for a magic card. I guess an Olympus based block would be pretty sweet, but highly unlikely. This card is too complex as well. I don't like it. C

Ritual of Revenge
2BW
Sorcery - Rare
Lose 10 life
For every non token creature put in your graveyard this turn you gain 2 life.
Instead of paying Ritual of Revenge's mana cost you may gain control of a creature and sacrifice it.


So.... wait. Huh? what the.... Why would you ever actually cast it? I don't like how it's cost is taking a creature. This is overly complex, and tbh, not even that good. All the abilities don't even really tie in together. Very sloppy card. D

Blister RRRR

Sorcery - (M)

If an opponent was dealt 6 or more noncombat damage this turn, you may cast Blister without paying its mana cost.

Blister deals 5 damage to target creature or player.

"The lavamancers are sometimes called 'blistersmiths, and for good reason"


Burn is playable with just burn. To make a card that's only good if you play a million bolts... well that's just making burn better. And Burn is dumb. This card is dumb. D

Cleansing Trap 3WW

Instant - Trap [Rare]

If an opponent had three or more creatures enter the battlefield this turn, you may pay 0 rather than pay ~'s mana cost.

Destroy all creatures.


heh, it's already broken just being a 3WW instant wrath. The free part is just gravy. I think this thing is probably too overpowered. And it's not very innovative. It's just a cheaper Route. D

You may have Squabbling Devil deal 4 damage to a creature you control instead of paying Squabbling Devil's mana cost.

The best way of getting a devil into your service is not wanting it at all.


Now THIS card is pretty sweet, very well designed. Playable on its own, conceivable to cast it with the alternate cost. Fucking amazing flavour. A+

Enigma Insignium WUB

Instant - Trap MYTHIC RARE

If an opponent casted a spell this turn, you may exile your hand instead of paying Enigma Insignium's mana cost.
Search your library and exiled cards you own for a white Human card, a blue instant card or a black sorcery card, reveal it, and put it into your hand. Then shuffle your library.
This turn, creature cards in your hand have Flash and you may play sorceries anytime you could cast an instant.


Too complicated, bad flavour, dumb name. D

Advance the Struggle 3R

You may skip your next turn rather than pay ~'s mana cost.

Untap target creature. After this main phase, there is an additional combat phase, followed by an additional main phase.


Hrmmm.... Neat idea, but it seems really weak. No flavour either. C

LOL, 2nd copy is free, nice. This thing is probably too good. The fact that your opponent can do it too may make it fair, but having your opponent gain the benefit as its drawback is just dumb. Makes for very awkward unfun cards. So either it's balanced and unfun, or completely broken. Therefore... D

You may sacrifice a creature with power X instead of paying Coffin Exchange's mana cost.
Return target card with converted mana cost X or less from your graveyard to the battlefield.


This is a free sorcery speed flicker for zero mana at the worst. That's debatably broken, but the fact that you can get another permanent from your yard just makes this way too broken. And yes, you can target the creature you sacrifice. Google it if you don't believe me. This is way over the top powerful. D

Reckless Extortion - 3BB - Rare

You may reveal your hand and exile a nonland card of target opponent's choice instead of paying Reckless Extortion's mana cost.

Target opponent reveals his or her hand. Choose two nonland cards from it. That player exiles those cards.


YOWZA! LOL, that's awesome. I love it, I want to play with it, and it is way way way too overpowered. D

As an additional cost to play Step In, return a non-blue creature you control to its owners hand.

Remove any number of cards from any number of graveyards, creatures get -1 -1 for each different card type removed this way.

Edit 1: mana cost


Too complex. It's too hard to even gauge the power level. BBB isn't that hard to cast for this instant Mutilate. What a dumb card. C

Why is squee accidently casting a 5cc green sorcery? I don't even know what to say about this card. Is it playable? Is it balanced? Is it too good? Is it's casting cost too low? Too high? I have no idea. So... D

Well, overall I was pretty dissappointed in the submissions. Lots of boring cards or widely over powered cards, or overly complex cards where the power level was too hard to gauge.

pseudodespot is the winner because his card is flavourful, simple, skill intensive, and powerful without being broken.

You may dislike it, no problem there, but the alternative casting cost is extremly good for the player playing it.

Well firstly I'm on Jacois's team, and I'm a fellow canadian, and he gave my card a C, when by your logic he should have given it an A+++. I liked Pseudodespot's card and I don't think you can justify saying it was worse than 80% of the cards here. I thought it was simple but also very original.

So... turn one drop, sacrifice it and get a 4/2 HASTE creature in turn one is just fine, but not a 2/1 shroud just because let's you keep your creature.

Turn one: Birds, 4 damage to it, play a 4/2 haste, attack

Turn one: Birds and free 2/1 shroud creature

They are plays of similar power, probably the first is better, but mine's too powerful, It's ok if you don't like it, but don't say it's just too good when you give the win to a card of similar power, I think Pseudodespot is really good and deserve to win, but there's not so much diference in power.

I personally think that every card with Shroud should get an F because it is the worst mechanic ever.

But in terms of power level, yeah, it does not seem broken when you look at Gravecrawler, Strangleroot or Invisible Stalker.

Your card is too odd to ever get printed I think. He said in the end "or overly complex cards where the power level was too hard to gauge". I think that describes the major flaw of your card.
