Hello Artisans. Are you feeling cunning today? I sure hope so.
Your challenge this week is one for which I have not found any elegant solution yet.
Many people keep submitting cards with abilities like:
"Secretly choose a creature. If the opponent guesses that creature [something happens]. Otherwise [something else]."How do you secretly choose something without using pen and paper, counters or "simultaneously" revealing your how many fingers you are holding up?
Design a mechanic that allows you to secretly select a card or number and compare it with your opponent… without access to tokens, pen or paper.
This is something R&D seem to be struggling with too, so finding a solution to that (Clash, anyone?) seems like a worthwhile endeavor.
The art we are designing for is of this Sphinx by GaudiBuendia:
Try to design a card for that art that fits the challenge given above. Failing that, explore mechanics that are enigmatic. Bonus points if this can be printed at lower rarities.
I will try to give feedback on your submissions over the week-end. Each Artisan is allowed one submission, but can update it as many times as needed. Please state the rarity of the card you submit. If you have a creative-commons art that better fits your card, please include a link to it and I will render the card with that art.
