Hey y'all, the word of the month is CHALLENGE!


No, seriously. The keyword is "challenge".

Here's my example

Now shoo! Get to card making!
Not exactly how I thought the Challenge Series would start on its first month.  Maybe the ability word I provided wrought your brains a little too hard.  Well, without further ado, lets us judge the only two people who participated in it.

First off, let us take a look at the individual cards.

:iconaurgelmir27:'s Greenglow Valley [… ]
I will say this, man; coming up with a souped up version of Suspend was unique. I never thought of having Traverse like that and you came up with a definition approach to it and I like it. At the very least, you put in "your end step" as opposed to "every end step."  That would make it too strong but a well balanced card overall.

:iconde-ep-th-ou-ght42:'s Relic Hunter [… ]
First up, using a Blink effect as the effect for Traverse is a cool approach.  What really got me excited is Relic Hunter's first ability; "if you didn't cast it from your hand."  The only downside of the effect is the legendary clause.  Personally, I think you added that word because of the awesome art of Indiana Jones.  May be a clause for a certain CMC and I think you might have something balanced.

Deepthought42's Akoum Raidcaller [… ]
Now this one is perfectly balanced with your version of Traverse.  Placed into hand would be a rare, maybe even uncommon. But "onto the battlefield" would send it up to mythic.  Awesome job, Deep!

Deepthought42's Kabira Recruiter [… ] and Magosi Peddler [… ] and Sejiri Scout [… ]
I guess when someone wishes to prove their ability works, they post 5 cards. For future reference, people, keep it 4 or under; writing analyzed reports for each one is time-consuming and laborious.
Kabira Recruiter: reduce the P/T to 2/2 and it would be better.  After all, a 2/3 uncommon with your Traverse effect?  In my opinion, it just overpowers it just tiny bit.  All in all, a B effort.
Mahosi Peddler: a weaker but blue version of Relic Hunter but it works.  An A- effort.
Sejiri Scout: not bad.  A rare 1 costing 1/1 with your traverse along with unblockable?  Each part is in balance.  Well done.

Since there were only two competitors, choosing a winner was difficult to say the least.
Deepthought42 and Aurgelmir27, you two have done great work and I sure hope you two have abilities to see what others will make of them.
The September winner of the first Challenge Series is Deepthought42!

Nice work and go ahead with your ability word.  Submit it as a card and I will start a new folder for the 2nd Challenge Series!

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...
