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-fifth challenge!
The winner of the "One in every set" poll was myself with...
And the challenge issued by our winner was...
Daij_Djan said:In the summer of 2010 Emblems were introduced into the game – originally to avoid memory issues with Elspeth, Knight-Errant's ultimate. Since then, 51 cards able to create an emblem were designed, all of them planeswalkers. But why is that? WotC officially confirmed this being a deliberate design choice but (as far as I can tell) never gave a reasoning why cards like Stigma Lasher wouldn't cause the same memory issues good old Elspeth did.
So how about for this week's challenge, how about we follow Wizard's old habit of sometimes intentionally ignoring previous design standards? Design a non-planeswalker card creating an emblem!
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!
