Seeing as how there were no other participants in last month's contest aside from me (though I'll prescribe that to not having a journal entry earlier), I suppose I'll give an early start to this month.

The theme for this month is simple: Timmy cards. For those who don't know what a "timmy" card is, let me write a quick overview.

A timmy card is, simply put, a card with a huge effect. It can be either a spell or permanent, but regardless, it has a huge cost and an equally huge effect. Some examples would be Lord of the Pit, Jokulmorder, Progenitus, etc. Non-creature examples would be things like Cruel Ultimatum, Tower of Calamities, and Dark Depths. For further explanation, you can read this article (archive.wizards.com/magic/maga…).

So, the goal is such: make the biggest, most (reasonably) powerful card you can think of. Whether you make a creature, instant, land, whatever, I want to be able to look at your submission and feel excited about playing it and seeing the look on the opponent's face when it gets slammed on the table.

Of course, there are a few other things you should keep in mind when making your submission:
1. No Planeswalkers. The last contest that had multiple participants revolved around planeswalkers, so I would rather not be repetitious.
2. On creature submissions: there will be no Akroma style creatures, i.e. creatures whose "timminess" comes from having several different keywords slapped on.
3. Cards should have a converted mana cost of four or more. Any submissions with less than that will be discounted. Remember: Huge cost, huge effect. However, if an effect would allow your card to cost less than four under some circumstance, I'll allow it.
4. A Timmy card isn't synonymous with instant win, but it should give a relatively high chance of leading to a victory if left unanswered. Neither is it always  synonymous with no drawbacks (See Jokulmorder example above). Of course, your submission isn't required to have any additional drawbacks, but it would be a neat touch.
5. Your submission should preferably have artwork, but it is not required.
6. Lastly, keep it as a Timmy card. The focus should be on exciting casual players, not on destroying the competitive scene. Keep it within Timmy's realm and don't stray into Johnny or Spike territory.

And that's all. Good luck, have fun, and make big things.
Because I seriously doubt most people saw NO8ODY's Contest theme, which is down in the comments of the April contest results (only just found it myself,) here's a blog version of it.

This month's contest is going to be relatively simple. The objective is to create a card that would fit in the final never to be released un-set. deadline will be May 31st.

The cards can be of anything but planeswalkers. I'll be judging cards based on the following criteria:
1) Playability and Power Balance. Try very hard not to overpower your card even though it is an Un-card I don't want ‘T: You win.’.
2) Flavor. The card should be bursting with flavor.
3) Artwork. These should be amazing and if possible go outside the standard parameters if possible.
4) Spelling, Grammar, and Proper Wording. I want to feel like the submitted entry is an actual card. Unless the flavor demands that text is misspelled.

I have a question about these contests. Is it ok if i use a card that I made before now as my entry? Like for this timmy contest, I have a bunch of red X spells that i made for my inner timmy. Also, how do i submit to the contests?

Perhaps we should start working on that custom set soon?

i have been so swamped with work that I personally think that the Sigma set will never be realized.

I really want to see it realized but I really want to keep my job.

What are your thoughts?

I think we might as well give it a shot.

very well.

what do you propose?

The most common rarity that this group makes is rare, with mythic rare a very close second.  We need to set the stage for number of commons, uncommons, and rares; making the right balance.
I tried making a forum in the group boards, but no one is doing anything.

how should we proceed, based on your knowledge?

so I wasn't sure if I should post it in the group because it's not technically a custom card its more of a custom game. 
I bought a used Game of Clue that was missing cards so I used magic cards to replace the normal clue cards and then put printed off pictures of land art to replace the rooms in the game. 
Hers the link if you want to check it out.

I found this amusing. Could you explain more of how your Clue MtG hybrid uses the cards, i.e. do you have to guess the name of the card based on abilities and so on? Does the rules have any effect on the game? :)

for now it plays the same as regular clue. just different locations and names of suspects and weapons. I have been thinking of introducing abilities for each of the characters but haven't done so yet. in the new clue each character has a once a game ability but I haven't added that yet it also has 3 more weapons so I might do that as well.
