Welcome to the Card of the Week Contest! To participate in this Contest you'll have to design a card along the contest guidelines and throw it into the arena with other competitors' entries! At the end of each week, a winner will be determined by forum poll. The winner's card will be rendered and featured on the Welcome page, and the winner decides the challenge for the next week's Contest!
Here we go, competitors: our two-hundred and sixty-forth!
The winner of the "Chaos Theory 2: Deterministic Hullaballoo" poll was voltaic-qui with...
And the challenge issued by our winner was...
voltaic-qui said:Guilds of Ravnica block had a lot of cool things in it, and also uncommon planeswalkers and proliferate. Possibly the strangest thing about the block, however, is the color densities of its mana costs. Consider the uncommon cycle of Nightveil Predator and friends; or randos like Kaya's Wrath and Expansion // Explosion. Niv-Mizzet, Parun, for instance, costs a whopping (and unprecedented) ! Even at common, the Locket cycle gets in on the action with four hybrid pips in the activated ability.
Accordingly, your challenge is to design a card with four or more colored pips in its mana cost. There are a lot of ways you can go with this - just in canon there's Cruel Ultimatum, Deus of Calamity, Last Stand... Let's see what you can come up with.
To increase your chances of winning and to also make creating the poll easier on whomever is doing so, please try to use a render.
Additionally, please try to keep your entry edits all in one post - if you need to change it you can put your old entry in a spoiler marked "Old entry" and leave the newest rendition to be seen. Just use the edit button in the top/right of your original post.
And now, time to begin the challenge!
Best of luck, competitors!
