The Gold Dungeon comes later (after 28 wins), it should be a little bit harder than a normal duel.

I found the starting cards of Quest 13 interesting: Sensei's Divining Top for the human and Teferi's Puzzle Box for the AI. I was dissapointed to see that the AI deck doesn't interact at all with Teferi's Puzzle Box, so I came up with a new list that may not be as powerful but more interesting to play against:

quest13 | Open

DisplayName=The Court Jester
Icon=The Court Jester.jpg
Deck Type=constructed

3 Underground Sea

1 Reliquary Tower
1 Island
1 Swamp
3 Bloodstained Mire
3 Scalding Tarn
3 Polluted Delta
1 Mox Sapphire

1 Mox Jet
1 Obelisk of Grixis
1 Ancestral Recall
1 Timetwister
1 Wheel of Fortune

1 Vision Skeins
1 Words of Wisdom

Sloth, once Innistrad is released I expect to see two Laboratory Maniac in this deck.

Can the AI handle Windfall or Memory Jar?

I've added Windfall and Memory Jar (replacing Timetwister and Cruel Ultimatum). I'm not sold on Laboratory Maniac, the human should be decked much faster than the AI with Jace's Erasure.

Normally I don't like the Maro cards in AI decks because the AI will do stupid things with them, but in this case it's worth it and I've added 2:

Here is a first draft for a new repeatable quest:

AIExtras=Darksteel Reactor|Privileged Position|Privileged Position
[metadata]
Name=quest23
Title=Reactor Meltdown
Difficulty=hard
Description=Avert the impending desaster
Icon=
Deck Type=constructed
[main]
5 Island
5 Plains
4 Tundra
4 Flooded Strand
4 Glacial Fortress
1 Mox Pearl
1 Mox Sapphire
4 Steel Wall
1 Wall of Frost
1 Wall of Omens
2 Aysen Bureaucrats
1 Council of Advisors
1 Grand Arbiter Augustin IV
1 Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker

It will be available after 35 wins. Maybe it's too easy, what do you think?

I had an idea about the 11th challenge (The King's Contest): The AI deck has the theme of legendary permanents, so why not make it mandatory by starting with Leyline of Singularity?

| Open
[quest]
id=11
AILife=30
Repeat=true
Wins=40
Card Reward=3 random rares
Credit Reward=450
HumanExtras=
AIExtras=Loyal Retainers|Leyline of Singularity
[metadata]
Name=quest11
Title=The King's Contest
Difficulty=hard
Description=The king is holding a contest. You are invited to participate and compete against other legends of this era.

[main]
1 Plateau
1 Taiga
1 Savannah
1 Arid Mesa
1 Windswept Heath
1 Wooded Foothills

1 Rootbound Crag
1 Clifftop Retreat

1 Forbidden Orchard
1 Rupture Spire
1 Plains
1 Forest

1 Asmira, Holy Avenger
1 Ayumi, the Last Visitor

1 Cho-Manno, Revolutionary
1 Commander Eesha
1 Day of Destiny
1 Feast of Worms

It's a little harsh if you don't know what's coming, but I made it repeatable so you can have another try :D .

I searched google for an icon that could be used for this deck. I could only find two and they are not good candidates but they could be used. Which of these two do people like best?

The first one fits. I wonder if I can design a deck for the second icon (I kind of like it).

The Medium Blue Challenge deck w/ Forced Fruition:
It seems like there's a bunch of Blue Creatures in this deck that Bounce land. None of them seem to be bouncing my land, so the AI casts one, then targets his own land. Not sure if there should be an IsCurse$ True on these, or what. But I believe the idea is to bounce the Humans lands?
