I got the clan name for the rider from its Planeshift colour shard since that's the last time and place we saw a printed Phelddagrif.
Is there a judging date for this contest?

However, I did successfully not screw up on the contest with respect to the ridden creature.
Duke did you abandon this contest or what?
I'mw waiting for more entries.
You may need to provide some additional incentive and clarity to encourage additional entries. There's no prize structure and the contest has been ongoing for almost three months with no end in sight. I would set a judging date and bump it occasionally so people know you still care about it.
1st place. A follow, seven favourites, and you may gift up to 3 faves to another cardsmith.
2nd Pace. Five favourites, and you may gift up to 4 faves to another
3rd Place. 2 faves

Did you mean the one person can make up to 5 entries because if so then I'll be happy to oblige
Alright, I'll edit in more entries into my previous post.

is an ostraga just a fantasy ostrich
yep, it's a flightless bird. I didn't want to give it the bird creature type because it doesn't have flying, and most Birds in MTG have flying.
Closed for judging!

Here are the results:
with R'ree the Fleetfooted and Hemnos, Archer of the Ostraga!
I like the first card especially because of its authentic balance and format. Nomads aren't a common creature type, especially in recent
sets. R'ree is cool, but I don't think Soulbond fits up with Gruul colours. Both well-designed cards, and its very hard to find art with similar aesthetic. Hemnos slightly over-powered. maybe?
with Goran Wartusk and Gothandi, Trumpeting Beast!
First of all, the names are very neat. Goran's first ability doesn't seem right to me. It seems conditional to me, at least. I appreciate that the partner is in fact 8 mana, but apart from that, it doesn't seem that useful. You would probably only want to run these commanders in an expensive-creatures matter and elephant tribal. The flavour is aesthetically pleasing and cohesive!
with Kyneal, Ground Razer and Kylox, Plane-Shatterer!
These commanders have the specific "Beasts, mindless destruction" aesthetic that appears on Gruul cards frequently. Flash doesn't really suit the Gruul theme. This 'Mount' ability is cool and definitely matches with the theme of the contest!! A few format mistakes, but they'll pass.
Thanks for entering, and please request your prizes!
, you have been followed!
Great contest! Congrats to all participants, well done all around
Here are my 7 to be favorited. They're all part of my Ganleya set, which is a WUR set that is trying to occupy the same design space as Zedruu the Greathearted.

; You can put my 2 favorites in any card you like in my Fabled Heroes set, thanks.
