I guess since I was winner of the October contest,i'll go with keyword.  I can't decide between Clarify or Distill. Choose which ever one you prefer to work with or I get a consensus from participants and choose one.


Originally I wanted to do a contest below.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
I like Magic the Gathering cycling old mechanics in new  sets along with new mechanics like in the set "Khans of Tarkir". With abilities like Morph and Outlast.

--> So for this contest I would like to see a combination of two mechanics on one card.  
--> The second requirement is that they both can't come from the same block/ set.

Rules:
- maximum two entries per person
-you can go more than two mechanics but be warned clutter can be detrimental to design.
- You can add a self made mechanic but card must contain two Magic the Gathering mechanics.


Looking for originality in creation and combination, along with synergy of mechanics working of each other.
Also preferred if at least one or both of the mechanics are from before Innistrad block.
WOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! Contest is over! Time to announce the results, and of course, the winner of this past month's contest.

So, it looks like we have 3 different entries: one from Alternatepony, one from TheTacoEaterMan, and three cards from Aurgelmir27

First off, we have AlternatePony's :iconalternatepony: Siege-Scaled Dragon

AlternatePony's take on Challenge is interesting. I like the alternate casting cost based on having more of BLANK than an opponent, although I do wonder about how good of an idea of doing that in red. With all of its inexpensive creatures, I'm not sure how balanced a 5/6 Flying Haste Trample for 4CMC will be. The dragonspawning in all likelyhood would rarely be used. That being said, the mechanic is pretty solid. There's plenty of room for expansion, rewards players for doing something everyone wants, which is playing more stuff than the other guy. Maybe it could be expanded to life total, cards in hand, etc. Dunno, food for thought.


Next up is TacoEaterMan's :iconTacoEaterMan:  Malathes, The Noble

The idea is interesting, but I'm not sure of how good this idea will be. You don't have a condition for if the card is the same CMC, or a reveal clause so that you have to prove their guess wrong or right (If I had a dime for how many times I dealt with someone trying to sneak a land or an enchantment as a Morph bug.) It's a little bit like clash, but a lot more controllable.  This guy is pretty crazy, I'll give it that. a 4/2 double strike that is effectively indestructable on attack, and is really only vulnerable to damage based removal the turn it comes down.


Finally are Aurgelmir27's :iconaurgelmir27: set of Dark Souls cards. Maldron the Assassin, Capra Demon, and Tower Knight

I will say that I don't know much about Dark Souls, so I can't really speak as to how accurate of a representation these cards are of the in game. That being said, this is basically the minor theme from Avacyn Restored that would do X thing if  Where X thing would happen if you only had one creature (See things like Demonic Rising and Fettergeist.)  Of the three, Tower Knight is on only one I feel makes good use of the ability. Capra Demon basically turns its own ability off, although it does leave blockers up after it attacks.... I'm not sure. As for the last one, Maldron, cheating creatures into play from hand is in no way part of Red/black. At best, R/B can cheat a creature for a turn, and then that creature dies.



Annnnnnnnyways, the winner is..........


AlternatePony!!!! Congratulations, Thank you to all the competitors, and good luck in the next round.

Ponyman, you're up!! What's the word, dude?

Well guys, after months and months of inactivity on this group, and even my own profile, I finally stepped down as Founder of this group, and made MTGEmperor my successor. 
I wish you guys all the best of luck in future contests, hope this group continues to grow, so when I ever get back on this page, I see a memberlist of epic proportions :P
Thank you all, for making this group into what it has become. I could never have dreamed it would ever get this far.. 
Somewhere, it still pains me to have made this decision. But all things end, and I've stretched this action way too far.

So with this.. I say you all.. adieu...
