...You mean a prudent update, right?

Prurient means something that would inspire the :kank: emote from MTGS, lol.

Whaaaat?! I can't imagine that I'd ever confuse those two words.

Anyway... that really doesn't change the meaning of the category imo, but it seems like it makes it clearer.

Is devotion to must be the only one on card, as in Thassa, God of the Sea, or the mixed devotion, as in Athreos, God of Passage, counts as well?

Theros had five mono devotion Gods needing five pips on board to become a creature. Born of the Gods and Journey Into Nyx each had five dual devotion Gods needing seven pips on board to become a creature.

The challenge is for a God of . While it would not result in a DQ, you might receive a point reduction from Judges if other pips are involved.

I considered Intentionally forfeiting the Generic Mana Sub-challenge to fit better with the god Cycle but I think this works assuming the set has Wastes and enough colourless support.
Wanted to give you a heads up, because you're relatively newer to the MCC: this sort of explanation in your entry is liable to earn the displeasure of the judges, if not an outright disqualification, since it seems to be pretty clearly trying to influence the judging in one way or another. If you want to avoid possible penalties, your submission should include only your card text, plus optionally a render of said card. If you do feel like there's any point that *really* needs explanation (say, an important rules issue), then this forum is the place to do that, but in general your entry should be able to stand on its own.

Fair enough, I'll remove it. I didn't realise it was a faux pas.

Thank you for the heads up.

I may or may not have lost track of time and forgotten.
But in my defense, I've been working on something you will all hopefully love >_<

I'm going to get my judgments in late (by less than a day) - I'm in the middle of a move and need to be up at 6AM, and won't have the time until tomorrow afternoon. My apologies!

@Sojourner Dusk, I am sure that Freyleyes submission's activated ability reads similiar Mind's Dilation, in that it casts all the exiled spells at once at the resolving - if you choose to not cast them, you have to activate the ability once again.

The devotion requirement is deeply confusing on multiple levels, and I honestly don't even quite understand what it's supposed to mean. But what it literally says is "devotion to each color and to colorless," which I think literally means "count up every non-generic pip," so that's how I'm interpreting it. I don't think that's actually what you meant, but this is a case where reminder text is necessary. Maybe you meant "devotion to any color or to colorless"? Genuinely not sure, so I have to go with the text of the card.
The intention was to have your devotion to every color (and colorless) need to be two or more, meaning Progenitus and itself would make it a creature, not just two devotion to any one thing. The wording is a little weird, but I based it off of Altar of the Pantheon since it's the only card that references devotion to all colors.

@Subject16 I'm happy to reevaluate it in light of that new information if you'd like, although I should warn you that I'm not actually sure it will help (and might actually hurt) since the increase in Balance will be counteracted by a decrease in Appeal and Quality. I can see how you ended up at that wording, but I am fairly confident that the correct one is something like "devotion to any color or to colorless," since Altar of the Pantheon is a inclusive statement (*all* your devotions go up) whereas Nyx has an exclusive statement (if *any* of your devotions...).

Regarding "non-evergreen mechanics", would Colourless Phyrexian Mana count? I know we're supposed to keep to mechanics that "existed" at the time of the set in question, but considering the theme is the premature introduction of C, is it ok to assume that Image would have been included? Or is that bending the challenge too far? If this question is inappropriate feel free to refuse to answer.

Do we need to keep the "to your mana pool" rider that would have existed at the time of Future Sight?

Phyrexian mana (pay 2 life or one of the chosen mana type) is a non-evergreen mechanic.

You do not need to use period accurate rules text for Future Sight (and some Judges may appreciate using current templating).

@Feyd_Ruin Your current submission does not produce/generate mana on its own, Creating a Treasure token does not meet the Challenge.

Subchallenge 2: Your entry includes a non-evergreen mechanic from one of the following sets: Conflux (2009); New Phyrexia (2011); Innistrad (2011); or Fate Reforged (2015).
By include, does that mean it needs to have the mechanic itself like Yidaro, Wandering Monster, or can it simply interact with it like Gavi, Nest Warden?

Oops. I guess I took the challenge more generally than literally.
Removed invalid entry; will have to think on this again.
Apologies.

If an entry only interacts with a mechanic on another card, by definition that would mean it doesn't include it.

Clarification Request: Are coloured artifacts a non-evergreen mechanic from New Phyrexia? I assume Infect is anyway.

As of Core Set 2020, colored artifacts (we only use real English words here, not that British nonsense) are deciduous, but are not yet evergreen, so it works for Subchallenge 2 as being either for New Phyrexia or Conflux, depending on the entry's flavor.

After a week of curveballs, sliders, and chin music, final scores for August are in.

BaconCatBug: 58.5
Feyd_Ruin: 62.5
Subject16: 56.5
LAS: 58.25

This month's winner is @Feyd_Ruin!
Contrary to rumors, Judges were not threatened with having to listen to Megiddo sing "Let It Go" for 72 uninterrupted hours if Feyd didn't win.

Thanks to all the contestants that suffered through this month's challenges.
