Last Week's Winner


Waiting on results.
Last week we explored the world. But Mown's so eager to get back to exploring he didn't even wait.

The Contenders


BelangiaJo wrote:
Signs of the Apocalypse -
Enchantment - Saga | MR
I - Create seven 1/1 black Horsemen creature tokens with flying, haste, and indestructible.
II - Destroy all creatures.
III - You lose the game.

neru wrote:
Elspeth the Returned
Legendary Planeswalker — Elspeth (M)
You may only cast Elspeth the Returned from your graveyard.
: Create two 1/1 white Soldier creature tokens.
: Until Elspeth the Returned leaves the battlefield, creatures you control get +1/+1 and have first strike.

neru wrote:
Leapfrog
Instant
Convoke
Target creature you control gain flying until end of turn. If you spent no mana to cast Leapfrog, that creature gets +1/+0 until end of turn.



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.

Elspeth seems like frustration incarnate to play against, just an endless token avalanche that doesn't really slow down if you do get through the soldiers to her.

It bothers me that Signs makes seven, not four Horsemen. I know more damage is better but you could make them larger.

Leapfrog gets my vote.

Yeah, 7 horsemen was a misstep. 4 horsemen that were 2/2 or even 3/3 would be fine. I don't even know that they need flying or haste. Just make them represent a decent amount of power and be indestructible. Once the wrath hits you won't need the evasion anyhow. Haste I could go either way on.

I'd probably have wanted to see Horsemanship, honestly, if you're going to make them evade.

I should have done 4 2/2s, but wanted to go wide instead of staying true to form. It was more *inspired* by the four horseman of the apocalypse. Another missed opportunity that would have been a little less "on the nose" would have been making the horsemen Spirit Knights or Horse Knights or something similar.

I think the 4 horsemen would have to be demons.

considering the nomenclature and nature of the horsemen, they could probably be incarnations
