CARD DESIGN CONTEST: March 3rd, 2018 - March 10th, 2018

    • CARD DESIGN CONTEST: March 3rd, 2018 - March 10th, 2018

      "Throw down your weapon and surrender. You can't defeat my army by yourself."
      "...uhm, I am
      an army."

      The Rules:
      Design a card (or possibly multiple cards) that meets the design constraint described below. The one that I like the best is the winner. You may submit multiple entries, but please be considerate of your
      fellow players and don't go too overboard. In the case of multiple entries, you will still receive one prize at most.

      In addition to any listed prizes, the winner then creates a thread for the next round, creates a new design constraint, and the game continues.

      Design Constraint:
      Design a troop who can be an army of one. The troop is able to produce copies of itself and gains power from controlling multiple copies of itself. The catch however, is you must include this in their description: "DeckBuilding - You cannot include any troop with a different name in your deck." Bonus points if you can turn this Deckbuilding into a benefit.

      Examples and Suggestions:
      Briar Legion strengthens all following copies of itself when played.
      Pack Raptor Creates hunting buddies and gains power from controlling multiple raptors.
      Mad Robomancer While it does not empower its copies, it gets the job done with mass production of itself.

      You are welcome to design a PvP card, PvE card, or even a PvE Encounter (please specify if you do).

      Judging Criteria:
      Here's what I focus on in judging, in order of priority:
      • Creativity - Create something interesting and fun to play with or against.
      • Balance - Make sure the design is not unfair to play against.
      • Elegance - The card's text should be easy to understand.


      [INVINCIBLE] Rewards [INVINCIBLE]

      1st:
      x3 Dead of Winter Packs

      2nd:

      Mina, Solitary Witch of Mirror Fountain

      S1


      Troop - Human Mage

      At the beginning of each of your turns, if you do not currently have a Mina, Solitary Witch of Mirror Fountain in your hand or in your control, put a Mina from your deck to your hand.
      Deploy, add a Mina, Solitary Witch of Mirror Fountain to your deck.
      At the beginning of each of your turns, create a random action you meet the threshold to cast and put it into your hand, then decrease the cost of each action created by cards named "Mina, Solitary Witch of Mirror Fountain" by 1. Each time you cast an Action, put a Mina, Solitary Witch of Mirror Fountain on the field under your control.
      Deck Building - You cannot include any troop with a different name in your deck".

      0/1

      "There was nothing in the world she loved more than the reflection of herself, then she found out the wonders of the Mirror Fountain. There is nothing in the world she loves more than the endless copies of herself she has created."

    • The Mad Chomper
      2 mana (ruby 1)

      Troop
      2/2
      Deploy: Choose at random: Summon a "Smell of Bread" OR Summon a "Taste of Butter", OR Summon a "Hunger for More", then change up to one action in your hand into a copy of this.
      Deck Building - You cannot include any troop with a different name in your deck.
      ----------------------------------------------
      Smell of Bread
      2 mana (1 ruby)
      constant
      All "The Mad Chomper" in all zones have +1 def
      ----------------------------------------------
      Taste of Butter
      2 mana (1 ruby)
      constant
      All "The Mad Chomper" in all zones have +1 atk
      ----------------------------------------------
      Hunger for More
      2 mana (1 ruby)
      constant
      Deploy: Choose a random socket ability, all "The Mad Chomper" in all zones get this ability.

      "The gruesome creature's only instinct was to feed and, despite any kinds of known logic, any time they fed, their hunger would continue to grow, at this pace, if they are not stopped, I am worried bout the fate of the world..."

      Creator note: Nota bene, nothing implies that the constants effect only the chompers on your side of the board ;) If unable to find sufficient food to fill up their eternally void stomachs, the chompers would in turn begin to eat up their own, in effect often miltiplying through their power of endless hunger :D
    • Archis, Dread Tinkerer
      Robot Dwarf
      ruby sapphire 3
      1/1

      Deploy: Summon a replica of Archis

      At the start of your turn, summon Dreadlings equal to the number of Archis in play

      When Archis leaves the battlefield, put a replica of Archis into your hand

      Deckbuilding: You cannot include troops with a different name than this into your deck.

      He claimed he was all Dwarf, with Dreadling parts. It was whispered that it was the other way around.

      Equipment: Spontaneous Fabricator Helm (head)
      Archis becomes Quick

    • My submission: Lixil has returned from falling into a portal and encountered the Enders in their home dimension. Where lesser individuals would be assimilated and lost, Lixil persevered and exerted her dominion over the Enders. With the opening of the Worldscar, she is now able to return to Entrath and will crush any who oppose her vision of perfection using her apocalyptic Ender army.


      Lixil, Queen of the End
      1

      Unique Troop - Necrotic Ender
      ---------------
      At the start of the game, if this is in your deck or in your hand, put Lixil, Queen of the End into play.

      [BASIC] X : Summon a random troop with cost X. It becomes an Ender in addition to its other types.

      DeckBuilding - You cannot include any troop with a different name in your deck.

      Troop - Temporal Insect

      Deckbuilding - You cannot include any troop with a different name in your deck.

      At the start of your turn, if this is in your deck, move it up one space.

      My brain is still on that tempo train, to be honest.
