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 three-hundred and forty-fifth challenge!
Design a card that both negatively effects and positively affects one or more opponent(s). (EG: cards like Generous Gift)
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.
Duelist's Dilemma Sorcery Each player chooses a card in their hand and reveals it, then discards the rest. ~ deals damage to each player equal to the total converted mana cost of cards revealed this way. Spare a friend, or slay a foe?
This could also be black, but I think it's a lot more interesting in green.
While an interesting idea, it doesn't quite follow the idea of the challenge because it doesn't directly negatively affect your opponent more than it buffs your own creatures in a way that they might not want to block.
emteedy I'd argue that most symmetrical effects would likely affect an opponent both positively and negatively. Wrath of God negatively affects your opponents by destroying their creatures, but positively affects them by destroying your own creatures as well.
Yeah, this challenge naturally has a rather wide grey area as far as entries being legal and/or in its spirit. I think it's best to let the voters decide here?
To be honest, I might be kind of biased considering my card also gives a different spin to the challenge - my opponents get affected positively but the negativity comes in this being an unrestricted tutor (for potentially several cards even)?
Daij_Djan, I like the card, but wouldn't it be a problem if your opponents can simply claim they disliked the present after they get it. You could do something like "You may offer any number of opponents a present. For each opponent that did not decline their present..." to get around that.
Trample When Endbringer Demon enters the battlefield, choose target player. That player gains 5 life and gets a deal counter. When Endbringer Demon dies, each player with a deal counter loses 15 life, then remove all deal counters from all players.
Foiled Ruin Sorcery Destroy target land you don't control. Its controller creates a Gold token. (It’s an artifact with “Sacrifice this artifact: Add one mana of any color.”) "Well, I certainly had no intention of helping him start a mining business."
