CARD DESIGN CONTEST 4/8/18 - 4/14/18

    • CARD DESIGN CONTEST 4/8/18 - 4/14/18


      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:
      Create a lore based card which combines two different unaligned factions. You cannot combine allied factions such as the Rotpaw Gang. You may also use an already existing character and creating a new variation of them such as Prince Talysen being murdered and then having his body used to awaken Prince Zakkaz. If you need to, you may include a short one paragraph story with your card.


      Examples and Suggestions:
      Void Star, the Sightless A coyotle tainted by thechaostouched.
      Hap'ie, the High Hero A former Shin'hare soldier who left his life for the Merry Caravan.
      Lazgar Chul A kidnapped female Vennen raised by Orcs.
      Lord Bernard P. Dunthorpe A human explorer who rescues and befriends an abandoned Shin'Hare.

      Judging Criteria:
      Here's what I focus on in judging, in order of priority:
      • Creativity - Create an interesting story behind the card.
      • Balance - The mechanics of the card combines two unlikely mechanics.
      • Elegance - The card's text should be easy to understand.

    • When one of the Luminaries decides to start making Wax Sculptures for the Merry Caravan:

      Madame Tussaud
      3 [DIAMOND] [WILD]
      Unique Troop - Human Cleric

      Deploy - Illuminate 1.

      When you Illuminate, you may choose to Sculpt instead of Ignite or Flare.

      1 [ATTACK] / 3 [DEFENSE]


      "Who knew wax would be so easy to shape?"



      Designer notes: The idea behind Madame Tussuad's ability is to add another option when you Illuminate. The wording of Sculpt X would be "Candlekin you control transform into random troops with cost +X, but change the name to Candlekin." So basically, Illuminate gains an option like Holiday's Whim. It also changes the name of the newly transformed troop to be Candlekin so that you can still Illuminate these troops later.

      In other words, with her on the field, you can choose to Ignite (summon Candlekin), Flare (make Candlekin bigger), or Sculpt (transform candlekin into random troops of an increased cost).
    • 3 - Dark Moon, the Converted
      [BLOOD] [SAPPHIRE]
      TROOP - Gnoll Mage - Legendary Unique

      Prophecy Deploy - The next card in your oponent's deck gets "When you draw this, discard a random card."
      When a prophesied card is played, trigger this troop's Deploy ability.

      2 [ATTACK] 3 [DEFENSE]

      Very nice combination of Locke's thievery ability and chaostouched burial. The only thing I would suggest is adding a sapphire threshold to weld it all together as a chaostouched troop.

      @invinible
      I am having trouble understanding what the troop does. From what I understand, its main ability is to inspire and conscript horses, but the parameters for the start of the game power has nothing to do with it.

      @SlayerStronghold
      All in the universe is suffering with Bloodpaw. Really nice use of prophecy and return to turn your action deck into a lethal burn deck.

      @Firellius
      A simple and clean revival of Winter Moon. The creativity behind the card is very unique and intriguing.

      @Arcanyx
      The Luminaries and the Caravan huh? Quite an interesting combination. Love the idea of escalating candlekins via transformation as opposed to just Flare.

      @AxelDWater
      A gnoll raised by coyotles is an interesting and very possible combination. A stackable negative prophecy can really force an opponent into a corner very quick. Very nice control power.

      Madame Tussaud has such a unique power when it comes to combining two factions. I never thought of the Luminaries and the Merry Caravan to have much in common, but with their powers combined, it can be a real threat.

      [FLIGHT] Honorable Mentions [FLIGHT]

      Firellius
      Love the creativity behind the card. The flavor text is just :thumbsup:

      SlayerStronghold
      Very nice take on Lanupaw becoming corrupt and built for control.
