Challenge #9: Duh, Winning!

L'Shana Tovah, designers! May the year 5773 be happy and Magic-al for all of you.

This week's contest is difficult, and will present a serious challenge to your creativity. Alternate victory condition cards only come along once every few sets. Your challenge is to design one that's different from any we've seen before. (EDIT: This includes the recently spoiled Azor's Elecutors.)

E-mail your card to by midnight (Pacific Time) on Friday, September 21. The winners will be posted on Monday, September 24. This challenge is open to everyone. One entry per person. Please specify your preferred name or pseudonym. Entries may be edited slightly for consistent templating. If you are interested in having your submission publicly critiqued, put the word "critique" in the subject line of your e-mail.


  1. Oh man, I've got an awesome one:

    Mr. Smith, Goes to Washington 3(U/W)(U/W)
    Creature - Human Advisor R
    At the beginning of your upkeep, put a filibuster counter on Mr. Smith. Then if Mr. Smith has five or more filibuster counters on it, you win the game.
    Whenever a source deals damage to you, remove a filibuster counter from Mr. Smith.

    Dig that groovy top down flavor?

    1. As if: Mr. Smith would be lucky to be 1/2!

    2. Also, he is refering to the upcoming Azor's Elocutors. Which I kind of parallel designed when I read the assignement, then had to submit something less elegant.
