Type of the Day: Splinter

Over 280 creature types exist in Magic. Some of them have been more prominent than others. All of them deserve some time in the sun. That's where this daily contest thread comes in. The rules are detailed below:

To Enter:
  • Note the type for the day, which will be the creature type directly after the previous day's in alphabetical order.
  • Design a creature (or kindred, previously tribal) card that has the day's specified creature type. This is the only restriction - as long as you have the right typeline, you can design any card you want. You can include any other types you like, as long as you have the specified one for the day.
  • Vote for two of the other entrants from the previous day. (In the event that there are two or fewer entries that you are allowed to vote for, you may vote for only one.)

A running score tally will be kept for all players' totals throughout the length of this contest. In addition, an honor roll of the winners of each day (the champions of that day's creature type) will also be maintained in spoilered form in each day's thread. Once all the creature types have been cycled through, and voting for the final alphabetical type (presently Zubera) is done, there will be a highly prestigious overall winner as well!

Other Rules:

Just like any other daily contests, anyone is free to enter as many or as few days as they like and begin entering at any time.

The list of creature types that will be used in this contest is the Comprehensive Rules list, which includes "canon" creature types, those which are only used on tokens at this time, ones only used in Universes Beyond or D&D crossover products, and ones only used in Unfinity, the most recent acorn set. If new types are added to the Comprehensive Rules list during the run of this contest, they will be included in a thread if and only if they are alphabetically later than the current day's type.

The penalty for entering without exactly two votes for the previous day's cards will be 7 days probation, during which there will be no restrictions on continuing to enter the contest or score points. However, if a player fails to vote properly again during probation, their card will not be eligible for voting the next day.

Threads will be archived by letter: Once the first day with a type starting with B is posted, for example, all threads for types starting with A will be sent to the Contest Archives.
