    How about this one (not to be alarmistic, this is not such, I hope):

    Name: Corona
    Card type: Virus Sorcery
    Mana cost: BBB

    Text:
    You get an emblem with:
    This emblem comes into play with 14 time counters.
    During your upkeep, remove one time counter.
    When there are no time counters on this emblem, it is sacrificed.
    Whenever another player shuffles your library or targets one of your permanents, role a die:
    1-2: that player copies this emblem.
    3-6: nothing happens.
    A player who has previously had this emblem cannot have it again.
    During your upkeep, if your life total is 1 life or less, you lose one life.


    It's not entirely playable, but... It's actually an interesting design space, having spells creating emblems and the tribal card type Virus.

    A saga seems ok, it may be a better way to fit the functionality on a card. Emblems are typically rather simple. I do like the emblems though. Having players sit with emblems that replicate.. Would feel, poxy. Yes, we need more pox style emblems.

    I was considering again what would make this card actually playable, and in a multiplayer game it's "value", or playability, grows with the amount of players, similar to a virus. But it still needs something else to be useful, and also some functionality to illustrate what happens when someone gets the virus. I think adding "you can't gain life" to it would be relevant and representative, illustrating that when you get the virus you get some kind of symptoms, although they are typically very weak, and potentially coughing and fever. It would also make it useful in a multiplayer game, can be coupled with for example Sulfuric Vortex and Eidolon of the Great Revel, also increasing the lifeloss it incurs.

    You can give players counters, but giving them emblems is bad: Emblems should never be given willy-nilly because the only way to get rid of them is to end the game.

    non-ultimate Emblems like Chandra, Awakened Inferno are an interesting design space.
    Some pox-y Planeswalker with a +1: each player chooses 3 cards in their hand and discards the rest, and 0: each opponent gets an emblem with "at the beginning of your upkeep, if you have 3 or fewer cards in hand, lose 1 life"
    Could be fun

    Re: Obligatory shitty card creation thread

    I think you both have good points. FourDougsInahorseSuit, you're probably right that the emblems shouldn't have counters; although they are needed to imitate reality they are perhaps less fitting game-technically. Also agree with PirateKing, I think I may have had the Chandra in the back of my mind here, perhaps, anyway it would be interesting to see a similar Pox-style planeswalker, plussing to give Pox-emblems.

    You could do something like:

    B

    Flip a coin. If you lose the flip, you lose 1 life, and cant gain life for the rest of the game.

    Contagious - for the rest of the game, whenever a spell or ability targets you or a permanent you control, that spell or ability's controller flips a coin. Anyone who loses the coin flip copies this spell.

    (It's worth pointing out that this doesn't have the "except this ability" clause that Epic spell does, so it has the potential to get out of hand quickly. It would probably be better if it only got stacked "one deep" but I'm not sure that there's a clean way to template that. Random mechanics tend to be cumbersome, but seem thematically necessary here.)

    Edit: Nah, I like it as enchantment:

    Global Pandemic
    BB
    Enchantment

    When Global Pandemic enters the battlefield put a Virus Counter on target creature.
    Each creature with a Virus Counter on it is a Carrier in addition to it's other types and gains "At the beginning of your upkeep put a virus counter on a creature of your choice. If you can't, destroy all creatures."
    When a creature with a Virus Counter dies its controller loses one life.
    When there are no Carriers on the battlefield, sacrifice Global Pandemic.

    Is playing around Chaos Orb social distancing?
    "I only drink whiskey older than my girlfriends. It's an expensive hobby at either end of the scale, no matter which way you work it. Do you go with an expensive lady, or a smooth drink? It's a real dilemma."

    "I'm your Huckleberry."

    "If it takes more than a day to decide, you'll never decide"

    Apparently John Cox, LordofthePit, Einherjer, Mr. Safety, Imnotbrown, Treefolk Master, and Parax love what I have to say.
