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 seventy-eighth challenge!
The winner of the "Draconic Rainbow" poll was the5lacker with...
And the challenge issued by our winner was...
the5lacker said:A subtle but important feature in modern set design is the Signpost Uncommon (Or as we often call it here: Arcun ~Daij_Djan), typically a cycle of two-color cards that indicate which archetypes each color pair is aiming for in draft. A recent twist has been to make these Signpost cards Legendary Creatures, both to serve as medium-low power Commanders and because it just seems fun, so that's what we're going to do. The challenge this week is to design an Uncommon Archetype Signpost Legendary Creature, which means:
- The card must be a Legendary Creature.
- The card must be an Uncommon, with an appropriate power level and complexity.
- The card must be a signpost for a draft archetype. This typically means being two-color, but there have been mono-color (Eldraine and Theros), tri-color (Alara and Tarkir), and even five-color (BfZ) draft archetypes, so feel free to experiment so long as it's clear.
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!
