Last Week's Winner




The battle is not yet won.
A fleeting and tiny victory, ephemeral and amoebic. Such is the reward of Neru.
Spoiler



The Contenders



Rush into Battle
Instant (R)
Cast this spell only during a precombat main phase.
End the current phase. (Exile all spells and abilities on the stack, including this card. The player whose turn it is then begins their combat phase.)
"The time has passed for preparations. War is upon us! We must fight now, or Ravnica is lost!"
—Domri Rade

Stradtehude, Organ-Grinder
Legendary Creature-Skeleton
Lifelink, deathtouch
If a creature leaving the battlefield causes a triggered ability of a permanent you control to trigger, that ability triggers an additional time.
3/6

Failed Experiment
Creature - Vedalken Mutant (R)
When Failed Experiment enters the battlefield, scry 3.
, Sacrifice Failed Experiment: Reveal cards from the top of your library until you reveal a creature card. Put that card onto the battlefield and the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.
"Progress cares not for your silly morals. Put that thing out of its misery and get started on the next batch." — Momir Vig
1/1

Dimir Mindcutter
:u::b:
Creature - Vedalken Rogue
Whenever Dimir Mindcutter becomes blocked, you may untap it and remove it from combat.
Whenever Dimir Mindcutter deals combat damage to a player, search that player's library for that many cards and exile them face-down. Then that player shuffles their library.
"I do not need to skulk in shadows; none can remember seeing me unless I permit it."
1/1

Loyal Test Subject has vigilance as long as you control another untapped creature.

Indoctrinated Bishop -
Creature - Human Cleric | U
When Indoctrinated Bishop enters the battlefield, you may exile any number of creature cards from your graveyard. If you do, create that many 1/1 white Spirit creature tokens with flying.
2/2





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.

Thanks for nominating Loyal Test Subject! I hadn't gotten around to nominating anything from that contest, but if I had, that definitely woulda been on the list. :)

The flavor text is just so incredible.

So if I have a dozen creature cards in my 'yard, I could create up to twelve Spirit fliers?

Haste
A deck can have only one card named ~.
If ~ would leave the battlefield, it's owner shuffles it into their library instead. Then, for the rest of the game, if that player would draw a card named ~, they may put it onto the battlefield instead and draw an additional card.
It sprouts throughout reality like weeds, until all remaining is a thicket of its heads unending.
7/2
