NEXUS FLAMINGO

Check Near the End of the Thread for the Current Challenge

Remember: Use IIWs for all challenges

Welcome to NEXUS FLAMINGO! If you aren't familiar with the rules for offshoots of a wildly-popular custom card game that are now hosted on a forum created as a response to the fallout from multiple corporate buyouts and the logical conclusion of the changing trends of internet discussion, open the spoiler right here. If you've posted in "the Winner is Judge" before, you'll be fine.
Winner is Judge Rules
Show
1. Submit an entry that fits the current criteria along with a suggestion for the next challenge (an "IIW").

2. If you win, you are the judge for the next round.

3. If you're the judge, evaluate all of the entries and choose the best one.

1. While I may more or less be in cold storage here, you can still reach out to me (people know how to find me) for help moving the thread along.

2. If you are the judge and fail to judge in a reasonable time frame, other members may summon me to judge for you, using whatever criteria I feel like. Don't subject your fellow posters to this. Have a heart.

3. If you do not post an "if I win" challenge, you cannot win.

4. Double posting and certain spammy posts are not allowed. Please be courteous to other posters and the server hardware.

5. I deleted the other rules that used to be here.
Miscellaneous
Show
Use any criteria you want for the judging! It's up to you (and sometimes me)! If you can't be bothered, use the below rubric.
Default rubric for boring people
Show
Card Balance /10: Is the card printable?
Card Innovation /10: Is it new and exciting?
Card Extras /5: Flavor, punctuation, whatever.

Hello CCC&G!

Welcome to the eighth (I assume) WINNER IS JUDGE KNOCKOFF STYLE THREAD!

This double post will be your introduction to the thread.

For your inaugural challenge, I will judge!

Your challenge is:

Make a non-legendary card that would fit into one of the Commander 2019 decks!

For reference: https://mtg.gamepedia.com/Commander_2019

I'll be judging using a method of judging that I discover sometime between now and when I feel like judging. I'll close at approximately 10 entries.

Enjoy!

I hope you remember who exactly was CCC mod and administrator during the time

Of course it didn't lead to any infractions because Clan Flamingo was the shadow government of MTGS

The card initially said "cast that card without paying its mana cost", but I'm not going to stop someone from paying half of their life total to play a discarded land instead of just playing it. It's not my job to tell you how to live your life.
