sdfkjgh Hehe thanks, and you know what is always said, what matters more is the inside- which in this case might be a kitten, a Porcuparrot, and/or a Vupikeet. And then it would even become prettier as well!
*Checks date of this Challenge's posting* July 25th? WOW. Ok, I may have forgotten about this one...
viriss: There's already Essence Symbiote, Vulpikeet, Glowstone Recluse, Mysterious Egg, and I'm sure I'm missing at least one other, so the fact that you can still manage to eke out a bit of a difference in such a crowded field of similar/exact same abilities deserves kudos. However, there's not much innovation beyond that slight difference, which won't actually matter ~89% of the time, and I'm speaking from experience. Mutate is more of a go-tall mechanic than a go-wide one, so the target is most likely going to be itself. I do love the idea of a Faerie Crab, though.
PEacefulOtter: Similar to viriss' entry, yours just doesn't do enough different from what's already out there. Plus, your mutate cost seems a little too high for so little an effect, just look at Vulpikeet and Majestic Auricorn (who just yesterday I realized has John Woo birds, and they're entirely appropriate, as this card's saved my life in many a game).
Flo00: Now, THIS is more like it! I have no idea what I'm gonna do once Paradise Druid rotates out. Prolly build a shrine, watered with my tears. Mutate creatures NEED this sort of protection & early-game play, and I'm still wondering why Auras decks haven't adopted them into their loving arms.
It's boogy & Flo, tied for first! You both offered much-needed protection for the precious mutators, and while I'm a little upset that no one thought to use indestructible, I'm also cognizant enough to realize that no strategy should have zero weaknesses (looking at you, control...).
Congratulations to the co-winners, and I'm mostly sorry I forgot about this. I guess it worked out, because Boogymanjunior turned in a real beaut.
I don't want to postpone the challenge too long, but Flo00 do you want to take my half of the mantle and be the one who pushes the next round? If you don't want to (or I feel like others begin to stomp their feet in the background) I could take over as well.
There used to be a lot of cards that would destroy the creature blocking or blocked by them after combat, regardless of damage dealt. Oftentimes with specification on which kinds of creatures would be affected. Future Sight introduced Deathtouch, which ultimately replaced these abilities. ...but what if R&D had gone in a slightly different direction? Well, somewhere is an alternate future where they did.
Bane is a keyword that destroys any creatures blocking or blocked by the bane creature after combat, whether they took damage or not. Like the abilities it replicates, it includes a condition for what kinds of creatures it affects. Meaning that you could errata the old cards to use Bane, which Deathtouch was unable to do. For example, Abomination would have "Bane of green and white.", Thicket Basilisk and Cockatrice would have "Bane of non-Wall creatures", etc...
Infect (This creature deals damage to creatures in the form of -1/-1 counters and to players in the form of poison counters.) Prowess (Whenever you cast a noncreature spell, this creature gets +1/+1 until end of turn.)
With the simultaneous compleation of Ojutai in the present, Shu Yun in the past, and Narset in the alternate timeline, the full annexation of Tarkir was declared a resounding success.
This one is more towards possible alternate futures. I like to imagine what would happen should the Phyrexians ever manage a multiversal invasion.
