Chah: 2.7 (Fun: 3 Aesthetics: 3 Mechanics: 2 Bonus: 0)

Average: 2.35

Jay Treat: What the Hell is a Petter and why does it hate Earth Elemental?

Chah: The ability is kind of narrow. Also first strike shouldn't be in blue.

metaghost: ?

Jay Treat: Wavebreaker might be my favorite mash-up of this pair. Not quite the cleverest, but certainly the cleanest.

Chah: I wish the wording separated the cost-ish part and benefit part into two clumps.

Pair 5: Lightning Blast and Gift of the Woods

Jay Treat: 6.3 (Fun: 7 Aesthetics: 6 Mechanics: 6 Bonus: 0)
Jonathan Woodward: 3
metaghost: 1
Chah: 3.7 (Fun: 6 Aesthetics: 3 Mechanics: 2 Bonus: 0)

Average: 3.5


Chah: Why gain only 1 life? Also, the trample makes your opponent not want to block it, making the life gain part even less significant.

Total for all 3 cards: 12.1

  1. I think you took the easy route and just glued together the parent cards to make your mashups, and I feel that's unimaginative. Not bad per se, but there's a lack of surprises in your submission.

    I think your second card is the best from the bunch. The first card has too many abilities to be common, and two of them don't feel blue. The third card feels glued together and the abilities don't match well.

    Other than the first one, I like them, and you certainly did what you were asked to do. :-)
