Split second and cannot be countered are the same no?
Split second spell can be countered by triggered abilities. Spells that cannot be countered can be removed from the stack (Venser, Shaper Savant and Mindbreak Trap) to prevent them from resolving.

Ruins of the Forge
Land - Mythic Rare

Tap: Add R to your mana pool. Ruins of the Forge deals 1 damage to you.

2R Tap: Put a 1/1 goblin creature token onto the battlefield.

4R Tap: Sacrifice any number of goblins, Ruins of the Forge deals damage to target creature equal to the number of goblins sacrificed. If a creature delt damage this way dies, transform Ruins of the Forge


Kuldotha, Reborn
Planeswalker - Kuldotha


+1 Sacrifice an artifact, Search your library for an artifact with converted mana cost equal to 1 plus the sacrificed artifacts converted mana cost and put it into play. Shuffle your library

I have no idea if she's overpowered or underpowered or just right.

Alright, here we go. Sorry for the delay, I overestimated how much I could get done in one sitting. Just in case, I'll restate the challenge here:

For this Create a Card, create a removal spell. Cards will be judged on printability, flavor, and creativity.


And now, on to the judging.

Ice Beam UU

Instant - UC

Ice Beam deals 3 damage to target creature or player. A creature dealt damage by Ice Beam does not untap during its controller's next untap step.


Printability: 5/5
Flavor: 7/10
Creativity: 3/5
Total: 15

Perfectly printable, and the flavor matches what an ice beam would do. Kinda like a blue Searing Blaze or somesuch.

You control enchanted creature. Enchanted creature deals double damage to its owner.

If enchanted creature would die exile it and return PotM to hand

This is a really, really pushed Control Magic. Borderline broken. The flavor is a bit hard to read into, but I guess I understand how it works.

It's pretty lazy to submit a card without a name, but I see what you're going for even if there's really no flavor to judge as a result. This feels a lot like a functional reprint of Vendetta as well.

Mechanically I'm not sure how this is supposed to be worded - but that's probably because there isn't a card like this already. As far as printability goes, it's hard to judge. Having one of your creatures take out multiple of an opponent's creatures is good, but at 5 mana it seems fine.

Okay, we get it. Sorin killed Avacyn - I think that horse has been done to death at this point. This is just a more narrow version of Anguished Unmaking.

Tentacles from the Deep UB (common)

Enchantment - Aura

Enchant Creature

Enchanted Creature does not untap during it's controllers untap phase. At the beginning of your upkeep put a -1/-1 counter on enchanted creature.

The Aegis suddenly lurched and was dragged backwards against the wind. Grog was not sure if it was one creature or many but the Aegis was a mass of writhing tentacles. It didn't take long for her to disappear beneath the waves.

A slow, crushing grip of tentacles. I like it. Nicely done.

Flint gave up on the trial, but Soro never did. Only 1 year later that Flint was in jail and his brother mysteriously missing from the grave.

Another Anguished Unmaking. Yawn.

Rocket Jump - UR

As an additional cost to cast Rocket Jump, return a creature you control to its owner's hand.

Rocket Jump deals damage to target creature or player equal to the converted mana cost of the returned creature.

Grog watched in awe as the enemy he was about to bash with a club rocketed into the sky. He greatly enjoyed the view until he realized that the force of the launch had left him without legs.

This is a... weird, weird Fling. Great in Izzet colors, especially when combined with enter the battlefield effects.

Inspiring Sacrifice 3BW

Sorcery - Rare

Target creature's controller sacrifices it. Creatures you control gain your choice of haste, first strike, trample, or lifelink until end of turn.

After the vampire king drank the blood of the humans' leader, the vampire attack was so fierce it seemed that this one death had nourished them all.


Printability: 4/5

This is pretty cool as a way to make your team awesome while killing your opponent's biggest threat. Having options is also always nice.

This seems really strong, especially at only 3 mana. Maybe a bit too cheap? I'd expect something like this at 4 or 5 mana, especially when you can use something like Martyr of Sands first to wipe the board.

This is non-creature removal, so it fits the criteria I guess. I don't know how I feel about the flavor of a planeswalker going into the Blind Eternities though - I was under the impression that they couldn't or absolutely didn't want to go there.

(3) Jace's Interrogation
Artifact

You may choose to not untap Jace's Interrogation during your untap step.

{U}{T}: Tap target creature, it does not untap in it's controller's untap step for as long as Jace's Interrogation remains tapped. Activate this ability only if the creature's power is equal to or less than the number of card's in it's controller's graveyard.

With the name being what it is, I feel like this would be better suited as an Enchantment. As an artifact, it should be something like "Interrogation Chair". Otherwise it's an interesting form of removal that aspires to be Vedalken Shackles.

Stay strong, McDonalds. You'll get your chance eventually.

Entomb + Murder. Cool. I don't know anything about Voodooism except what I've heard, so I'm not sure I can really judge the flavor, although it seems like it fits.

A land that turns into a planeswalker. Odd, but okay. It definitely has the removal part, so creativity is spot on. The formatting of the transform clause needs to be fixed so that the Planeswalker side actually enters the battlefield, otherwise this just flips, sees it has no loyalty, and immediately dies.

Winner is Jacois, with Voodooism. Runner up is kamphgruppe, with Tentacles from the Deep.

I was a little disappointed with how little explanation you gave for each card, but I found this one in particular to be baffling. You gave a card that literally breaks the color pie a 5/5 for printability? Why? A card like this would never be printed outside of Planar Chaos.

I have to agree about duodax's submission, wizards are making removal weaker and weaker and weaker and more circumstantial with every set that comes out. This might have been printable when searing blaze was printed, in a planar chaos like set but this is 2016 and they do not print removal like that anymore.

I also think the spell would prove to be stronger than lightning helix.

Not a fan of Voodooism because it doesn't require the creature you're putting into your grave to be similar to the creature you're destroying in anyway.
