    My submission: remove all creatures from the game, at end of turn return all creatures to play under its owner’s control.

    A massive otherworldly journey without the +1/+1. Not very innovative, but this was my first thought seeing the art. So I went with it.

    Counter target spell.
    Gain life equal to that spell's converted mana cost.

    It's never been done before. Closest they ever came was Absorb, and that's a hard 3 life no matter what you counter.

    My submission:

    Until end of the turn, target permanent is indestructible. You gain life equal to its total mana cost.

    It explores a mechanic that is new to Magic, and the first time in an Instant/Sorcery form. Not to mention how powerful a card like this would be, given the right mana cost, of course, which I envision at 2WW, if not 1WW, and at Instant speed, of course. Not broken, not over the top, just interesting.

    I submitted a 'gain one life' card that automatically went to your hand when it was put into the graveyard.

    If ~this~ would be put into your graveyard, put it into your hand instead.

    Gain one life.

    Orgg, if your card does what I think it does (it isn't worded "from "anywhere" but it doesn't specify that it had to have resolved in order for the ability to work either, so I'm unsure), wouldn't it be pretty crazy with stuff like Wild Mongrel?
  7. orgg Administrator

    Yea.

    I figured since all the cards made so far were nearly broken, I might as well continue the trend.

    If it's selected... I'd be SHOCKED.

    They could like the general idea of the mechanic but change it or balance it as it's play-tested...

    It's finally back on.

    You Make the Card 3 Step 5

    Mana Cost Vote

    White sorcery 3W

    White instant 4W

    White/Blue sorcery 1UW

    White/Blue instant 2UW

    Mechanic J won from Step 3 (I think they skipped Step 4)

    Remove target creature from the game and draw cards equal to its power. At the beginning of your next upkeep, return it to play and discard cards equal to its toughness.

    It's horrible as a sorcery. This is more of a combat trick card for instants. In that case, 4W is way too much, so anyone who votes, please make it a gold card. :D
  11. orgg Administrator

    Gold Instant, definatly.
  12. jorael Craptacular!

    Agreed.

    Wizards: stop the poll, ignore the votes. We have decided!

    I sent in Whisk Away.

    I know, it doesn't have a prayer. But it seems like the best way to tie in the art to the effect.

    D. Dust of Dreams
    E. Journey Through Dreams
    F. Somnomancy
    G. Tranceport
    H. Trial of Sands
    I. Vanish into Memory
    J. Wander in Dreams

    I like B.
  17. orgg Administrator

    "Dream Magic," or F. Somnomancy seems to fit it best in my mind.

    The creature is sent to dreamland, and its dreams are your own.

    (reference 'Dream Cache')

    Trial of Sands

    Sounds best, IMO. Besides, I find the person in the picture more some kind of desert spirit, than something from a dream.

    I submitted 'FRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRTTTTTTT!!! EXCUSE ME!
    -Furt, Goblin Extrordinairre'

    Y'know, Furt Farts.

    's just a throwaway. Could be fun if it was selected.
