Type 1 Scavenger Hunt

  1. Dead CPA thread-killer

    Don't know if any of you saw this as it was buried pretty deep in the coverage, but the event horizons invitational had a pretty cool new format: the type 1 scavenger hunt. With a couple of altered categories my playgroup is hopefully going to give this a try during half term week. I like it because whilst it's not too tough to find cards that match the criteria, to get synergy between them is tough. Anyway here's the rules, lifted from http://www.ehevents.com/invitationalformats01.html :

    Decks must be Type 1 legal, even if the deck fits within the confines of the hunt. In other words, even though Black Lotus can be used for more than one category, only 1 copy is permitted since it is restricted in Type 1. Of the 75-card hunt list, 15 cards of the player's choice will be assigned to their sideboard.

    A single card cannot count for more than one category, but the same card may be used to fulfill multiple categories by playing with multiple copies of that card. In other words, Ghitu Slinger (eligible in several categories: echo, "187", gray ogre, etc.), only counts once for whatever category it is placed in, but multiple copies of the slinger can be played to fit into other categories.

    -The 75 cards required are as follows:
    Any non-artifact card with an upkeep cost
    Any spell with X in its casting cost
    Any cantrip (a spell that draws one card in addition to its normal effect)
    Any Gold card
    A snow-covered land
    Any card with cumulative upkeep
    A permanent with Echo or a creature with Shadow
    Any card whose card name contains the letters "E", "H", and "I"
    Any creature with creature type: Wall
    Any spell which has an alternate casting cost
    Any spell with buyback
    Any card with converted mana cost greater than 5
    Any card with cycling
    Any spell which has an optional kicker
    Any land which can become a creature
    Any spell with gating OR a growing enchantment (Saga Block)
    A split card
    Any spell with flashback
    An enchant land
    A legendary artifact, land, or creature
    Another legendary artifact, land, or creature (not the same card as above)
    A card whose flavor text contains words that rhyme
    Any rare of your choice
    Any uncommon of your choice
    Any common of your choice
    A creature with creature type: Spellshaper
    Any card that has at least triple color intensity (of the same color) in its mana cost
    Any card featuring the artwork of Adam Rex
    Any card featuring the artwork of Brian Snoddy
    Any card featuring the artwork of Carl Critchlow
    Any card featuring the artwork of Heather Hudson
    Any card featuring the artwork of Rebecca Guay
    An artifact that produces mana
    Any enchantment that can be played as an instant OR any permanent with Fading
    A land that does not produce mana
    Any ryhstic spell or perpetual enchantment
    A "hill giant" (a 3/3 creature for 3x mana)
    A "gray ogre" (a 2/2 creature for 2x mana)
    A "grizzly bear" (a 2/2 creature with a converted mana cost of 2)
    A 1/1 creature for 1 mana (any color)
    Any creature with a landwalk ability or protection
    A "187" creature (a creature with a comes-into-play effect)
    A card that depicts a female in the artwork
    A spell with converted mana cost greater than 7
    A permanent with a phasing, flanking, OR threshold ability
    A sleeping enchantment (veiled, opal, etc.) or any card that requires a coin flip
    Any card with a mechanic originating in the Torment set
    Any FOIL card of your choice
    Any card whose flavor text mentions Urza and/or Mishra
    Any card appearing in a winning deck (or SB) at any MTG: World Championships
    A creature with creature type: Licid
    Any non-basic land (A or B)
    Any non-basic land (A or B)
    Any non-basic land (other than A or B)
    Any non-basic land (other than A or B)
    20 basic lands
