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 eighty-first challenge!
The winner of the "The More the Merrier" poll was kinotherapy with...
And the challenge issued by our winner was...
kinotherapy said:Lately we've been seeing a few pushed cards designed for tribal decks, but outside of the set with the tribal, such as Shifting Ceratops and Knight of the Ebon Legion in M20 (well ok, M20 had a bit of vamp tribal, but not much compared to Ixalan.) In this vein (lol), pick an existing tribal strategy and design a new creature card for it, but without using that tribe's name in the rules text. That means no lords — i.e. if you're making, say, an Ixalan-style Merfolk then you can't give it an ability that mentions Merfolk — but you could still design it with a Merfolk counter strategy in mind, or design it to synergise with existing Merfolk cards like Merfolk Mistbinder or Jadelight Ranger. Though if you do, try to make sure your card isn't completely reliant on its strategy as it should still be useful in a vacuum.
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!
