Last Week's Winner


This is nothing special. Winning CotW always grants you immortality JV.

Exile target creature. (You may cast a legendary instant only if you control a legendary creature or planeswalker.)

Search your library for a basic land card, put it on the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library.
If you control a Plains, Island, Swamp, Mountain, and Forest, untap all lands you control.
I have seen the Felds of Alcorran, the Isles of Hemdor, the Bogs of Swive, the Peaks of Duroc, and the mighty oaks of the Elish Trail. Only now do I understand the world.

Search your library for a card, put it into your hand, then shuffle your library.
Suspend 4-- :b:

Sphinx's Probe
Sorcery (U)
Starting with you, each player names a different card. Then each player reveals his or her hand. Each player who named a card in another player's hand draws a card. Then if no cards in a player's hand were named, that player draws a card.
All questions demand answers, and all answers yield questions.

Golem Servitor
Artifact Creature — Golem (U)
3/3
At the beginning of your upkeep, if Golem Servitor is on the battlefield, return each creature card named Golem Servitor from your graveyard to the battlefield.
It never tires of reassembling its comrades.

History Repeats Itself
Enchantment (R)
If a Saga on its final chapter would leave the battlefield, remove all lore counters from it instead.
"The key to becoming a legend is interrupting history at just the right moment."
—Teferi



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.

Can we please update my design to include the shuffle clause? Right now you're searching your library without shuffling it afterwards.

That seems like a necessary fix to a mundane typographic error. Consider it done.

still think two or even one token would be more reasonable but it's the idea that counts

If enchanted creature would leave the battlefield, you may put a +1/+1 counter on it instead and remove all damage from it. If you do, return Mark of Revivification to its owner's hand.

All creatures phase out.
"What time is it?" Squee asked as he twiddled his thumbs.
"It's the same time as the last time you asked and it will be the same time as the next time you ask," Karn replied. "There is no time."

I'm doing that thing where I nominate too many cards again but you guys are doing a good job this week so i guess it is what it is

Messenger's Demise
Sorcery (U)
Return target creature card from your graveyard to the battlefield. Then sacrifice it.
"The spy returned, weak and wounded, delivering the news of the impending onslaught. As he perished before us, we shuddered, knowing we would soon be joining him along the ranks of the dead."
—Maira, journal entry

I imagine this might get restricted in Vintage if it saw print, but it's still cool.

Totally agree. As I was designing it, I literally thought "this would be super broken with Protean Hulk."

I mean it's fine and all, but it just seems a lot like Footsteps of the Goryo.
