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 sixty-fifth challenge!
The winners of the "Oddly specific" poll were Daij_Djan (left) and Giraculum (right) with...
And the challenge issued by one of our winners was...
Giraculum said:This challenge is inspired by last week's "skyworld" challenge. One of the most common top-down world ideas asked about on Mark Rosewater's blog is a plane that's completely underwater. As he's remarked, it's easy to design blue cards that match the world... but the other colors not so much. That's your challenge: Design a non-Blue card for an entirely underwater plane. No blue mana symbols anywhere!
I expect the color pie to do some heavy bending in terms of flavor. On any other set, your design might look like a blue card. But on an underwater world, there's a blue tint to everything; what matters for determining color is the relative flavor. Still, your card should try to adhere to the mechanical color pie as closely as usual
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!
