Arakis' Quest - the Illustrator Team Quest 4/26/10-5/10/10
Written by lupos

We're going to try some thing a bit different.  It's a slight variation on the idea of Arakis' Quest, something I'm going to call a Team Quest.  What this means is, all (or in some cases, a subset of) currently released cards will be allowed, but they'll bedivided into "teams".  When you craft your entry, you'll need to choose one of these teams and only use cards from it.  In honor of the recently- released EX 6, which focuses on the work of artist Katsuya Terada, this Team Quest will be based on card art, specifically, which illustrator drew each card.

 

 

 

As far I know it is not possible to search the card list by illustrator, so I went ahead and presorted them all into twenty teams.  You'll find the listings below.  It's possible, though not likely, that I missed a few cards when constructing these lists.  If you happen to discover any missing cards, please notify me immediately.  These teams are obviously going to vary in size, and there's an important piece of information you should consider before you immediately go with the largest team or one in which you spot some killer combo. Only one (best) submission per team will be considered as a finalist for this Team Quest, and there will as usual only be six finalists.  Bear that in mind, as it might be worth yourwhile to try to use one of the more challenging teams and thereby face less competition in reaching the finals.

 

In order for an illustrator to have his or her own team, they need to have at least designed ten cards, and at least two of those must be units for the sake of soul card usage.  There are a number of illustrators who haven't met this criteria at this point in our set releases, and they will begrouped together into Team Miscellaneous. The irony of this is, Katsuya Terada himself only has nine cards to date so that's where he has to go too. For kicks, we're also including a team of thecards designed by your very own US GM team. 

When you submit, please state which team you're using as this will streamline the process.

The bonus prize for this Quest idea goes to DDrgn.  If you've neverentered a Quest before, be sure to check out the main contest page for generalinfo on formatting and such.  Get yourexisting or

You have until noon EST onMonday, 5/10, to submit, and please note that if there are any issues with your entry, they will need to be fully resolved before the deadline. One thing's for sure, this is going to be the most visually coordinated Quest yet, and possibly one of the more challenging ones.  Good luck!
