Welcome to the Card of the Week Contest! To participate in this Contest you'll have to design a card along the contest guidelines and throw it into the arena with other competitors' entries! At the end of each week, a winner will be determined by forum poll. The winner's card will be rendered and featured on the Welcome page, and the winner decides the challenge for the next week's Contest!
Here we go, competitors: our two-hundred and eleventh challenge!
The winner of the "Exam Week" poll was kinotherapy with...
And the challenge issued by our winner was...
kinotherapy said:First challenge of the new forums, how exciting! Alongside the return to Dominaria, the many callbacks and new rules/formatting, and Magic's 25th anniversary, it feels like the perfect time for a lazy meta contest. Design a card that calls back — in flavour, mechanics, or both — to some aspect of Magic or MSE history.
I've left this open-ended intentionally because I want to see your different interpretations: you could design a card that would fit well in Dominaria, or a "Return to X" card. You could design a modern take on a classic concept, something that refers to a specific card, either real or custom, or one that fits into an MSE set. You could even make a Saga if you have the photoshop skills (or if the template is ready by the time this contest starts)
Note: Feel free to note what your card calls back to, the reference will be included in the poll! ~Daij_Djan
To increase your chances of winning and to also make creating the poll easier on whomever is doing so, please try to use a render.
Additionally, please try to keep your entry edits all in one post - if you need to change it you can put your old entry in a spoiler marked "Old entry" and leave the newest rendition to be seen. Just use the edit button in the top/right of your original post.
And now, time to begin the challenge!
Best of luck, competitors!
