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 ninety-first challenge!
Your card doesn't have to have anything to do with your set (e.g., a card named Worldwake doesn't have to be Zendikar-related).
Let's run this with "Space Monkey Mafia" rules - no repeat names among entries, first come first serve.
Planechase is a thing.
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.
Before Theros got leaked I was hoping we would see Sagas again whenever we had a 'return to' set. That we could have Sagas depicting events that took place the last time we visited that plane, so I've been brewing up some cards that already fit this challenge.
Rise of the Eldrazi Enchantment - Saga I & II: Each player sacrifices a creature, a land, and a noncreature nonland permanent. III: Create three 10/10 colorless Eldrazi creature tokens.
Torment - Instant - Put a -1/-1 counter on target creature, then Torment deals damage to that creature's controller equal to the number of -1/-1 counters on creatures they control. For some sorcerers, the efficiency of their spells is secondary to the pain that those spells cause.
EDIT: Dang it, there's already a card named Torment. Well, how about...
Invasion - Sorcery - Exile the top X cards of your library, then you may put any number of creatures exiled this way with converted mana cost less than or equal to X onto the battlefield. Those creatures gain haste. Sacrifice those creatures at the beginning of your next end step. As swift and deadly as a sudden storm, and just as unexpected.
Worldwake Instant Choose one: - Untap up to one target land. - Search your library for a Forest card and put that card onto the battlefield. Then shuffle your library. - Target land becomes a 4/4 creature with trample. It’s still a land.
"Throne of ELKdraine" Seriously though, I claim Antiquities
Dimir? Never heard of them. I'm just a simple Orzhov defect turned Selesnya recruit after my Azorius mother gave me to my Izzet father in Gruul territory. I've also overseen Boros projects, but I turned to the Golgari after the Simic augmented me with a snake tail after a Rakdos bet me that it wouldn't work.
I do have a set name in my card name... "ice age"... but it has to be the individual words?
I'll change it.
The official wording on the challenge says "your card has to share a name with a set", so I think that it has to be exactly the same. On that note, jarribas309, "The Dragon's Maze" isn't the name of a set - I would name it just "Dragon's Maze."
(I put "Sacrifice at IV." because III will be useful mostly during the untap step just before putting the 4th lore counter on the Saga. Also i know Sagas shouldn't be artifacts but for Urza i wanted to make an exception.)
