Last Week's Winner

The Contenders


Riorvard wrote:
Twisted World (M)

Instant
Randomly redistribute power and toughness of each creature.

Haze-Shrouded Steppe
Land (U)
At the beginning of each upkeep, add :w:. You don't lose this mana until end of turn
The future from which the Time Rifts brought oddities into Dominaria can neither exist nor fail to exist, a paradox resolved in the haze.

Shimmering Knight
Creature - Human Knight (C)
First strike, kaleidoscopic (This creatures is all colors.)
Whenever another white creature enters the battlefield under your control, Shimmering Knight gets +1/+1 until end of turn.
"Dawn breaks; the enemy will see only its blinding end."
1/1

Level the Field :1::w:
Enchantment
If a creature's power would be higher than its converted mana cost, it is equal to its converted mana cost instead. The same is true for toughness. (This includes base power and toughness)

Si'thelek, Simic Visionary
Legendary Planeswalker ─ Si'thelek (M)
: Si'thelek becomes a copy of target creature until the start of your next turn.
: Create a token copy of target creature.
: You get an emblem with "At the beginning of your upkeep, create a token copy of target creature."

Rubik wrote:
Zera, Seeker of Truth -
Planeswalker — Zera
: Exile the top card of your library. Any opponent may have you put that card into your hand. If they don't, put loyalty counters equal to that card's converted mana cost onto Zera, Seeker of Truth
: Put target card from exile on top of it's owner's library.
: You get an emblem with, "You may cast nonland cards from your hand without paying their mana costs."

Desperate Impulse |
Sorcery | {U}
Add X amount of , and exile the top X cards of your library. You may play a card exiled this way this turn.
They only call it "one last trick" if they live long enough to find out.

razorborne wrote:
Gift Of The Whisper Child-
Enchantment
When three or more creatures die, sacrifice Gift of the Whisper Child. If you do, draw two cards. (They all must die at the same time.)
"Though some have called him monster, let him be,
He has no heart nor mind nor soul to save,
His sunken eyes are blind and yet they see,
The road we walk from birth towards the grave"




The Rules


How To Nominate:
Quote the post with the card you want to nominate. Delete everything in that post other than the card. Copy and paste your quote into a post on this thread.
If you did it right the quote tag should link to the original post.

What's Eligible?
Any fan-designed M:TG card posted since the most recent CotW thread went live is eligible. It doesn't even have to be the first time the card was posted. Yes, Un cards are valid. No, Yugioh cards are not.

What's Not Eligible?
  • Nominating your own cards. You can only nominate cards by other people
  • Nominating a card from your own repost, regardless of whether or not the original post was yours.
  • Nominations that result from collusion. If a nomination is made in exchange for some sort of favour, or under some sort of threat, then the nomination is void.
  • Cards that have already won CotW are not eligible for future CotWs.
  • Nominations that I consider to be jokes or trolling.

A Note On Contests:
Many contest holders feel that having an entrant nominated for CotW will skew the results of their contest. To prevent this while still allowing those cards their chance at nomination, any card submitted to a contest is eligible for nomination to CotW as though the date the contest (or pertinent round of the contest) ended was the date the card was posted.

Preferred Pronoun Set:
Ariah, Deliverer of Justice
Legendary Creature — Angel (M)
1/5
Flying
If a source would deal 1 or more damage to a player or a permanent other than Ariah, Deliverer of Justice, it deals 5 damage instead.

My card should probably be legendary since it's no longer 2016.

Twisted World is one of those cards that read better than it plays.

Twisted World Is the perfect concept for an MTGO only set. That would be a good brainstorming topic actually.

Preferred Pronoun Set:
Moment of Distinction
:1::g:
Sorcery
As an additional cost to cast Moment of Distinction, sacrifice a token creature.
Search your library for a creature card that shares a type with the sacrificed token and put it onto the battlefield. Then, shuffle your library.
Chiaya had already taken up her bow to protect Llanowar, but it was when she was released from Marwyn's care that she felt she was truly part of the elfhame.

This is the second time I've nominated a Tevish card for CotW that didn't win the contest it was posted in. All I can say is that the characteristics of a card i consider when grading it and when nominating it are different. nominations get much more points for "YMtC-ness" and don't really have to be balanced.

Protection from creatures with power 4 or greater

3/2

As a classics major, I had to nominate this for the flavor.
