Suffocating Faith
Enchantment
If a player would gain life, that player mills twice that many cards instead.
Hope rests here.

Demolition Works
Enchantment - Aura (U)
Enchant artifact or land

Possessed Puppet isn't a creature unless it's haunted.

No strings attached.
4/4

No sweeter song than the warning cry that saves you.
1/1

Hidden Cache

When you cast Hidden Cache from exile, if it was exiled by a permanent with hideaway, create five tokens that are copies of it.
, Sacrifice Hidden Cache: Add one mana of any color.

Postal Operative

0/0




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.

You may spend as though it were when paying activation costs of abilities from artifact sources.

Split second (As long as this spell is on the stack, players can't cast spells or activate abilities that aren't mana abilities.)
When enchanted creature attacks, reveal up to one creature card from your hand or graveyard. If you do, enchanted creature becomes the revealed creature until the end of turn.
When enchanted creature dies, return Mirrormask Shroud to its owner's hand.

yeah, I debated between and , but it doesn't actually net you anything but tempo, so it felt weaker than savor the moment.

Breaking the tie in favor of Slagheap Monstrosity. I suspect it leads to more interesting decks and gameplay than possessed puppet.
