Last Week's Winner



Neru got the jump on last week's competition.
Spoiler


The Contenders


Ghostfire Arsonist
Creature - Merfolk (U)
This creature cannot be blocked.
: This creature gains +1/+0 until the end of turn.
0/1

Stupid Pun
Instant
Counter target spell if it's not the first spell its controller cast this turn.
Barrin had always hated leather. Unfortunately for Mirri, his opinion could not be suede.

Communal Research
Enchantment (R)
If a player would draw a card, instead each player draws a card.



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.

Orrery of Skulls
Artifact (R)
Orrery of Skulls enters the battlefield with a skull counter on it for each creature card in your graveyard.
You may cast creature cards with converted mana cost is equal to or less that the number of skull counters on Orrery of Skulls from any graveyard (You still pay their costs). When you do, remove a skull counter from Orrery of Skulls.

I think the templating for removing the counter could be better, but this is a cool card.

Q wanted to know if his card got nominated so he could update it with flavour text, but I only nominated it seconds before starting the new thread so he didn't have a chance. Sorry Q.

Blue has a history with group hug draw effects, like Prosperity.

In the absence of card draw effects, Communal Research plays a lot like Howling Mine, and those effects are historically either colorless or blue. (Kumena's Awakening is a recent example.) Despite how white the flavor is, white shouldn't have access to that sort of card draw.

Speaking of Howling Mine, I'd be much more interested in Communal Research if it cost .

Eye of Hazoret-
Creature-Sphinx
Flying, Menace
When Eye of Hazoret enters the battlefield, target opponent guesses "win" or "lose", then you flip a coin. If you win the flip, draw a card. Then, if your opponent guessed wrong, Eye of Hazoret deals 3 damage to them.
"I eat, I live. I breathe, I live. I drink, I die. What am I?"
4/4

Mogu of Temperance
Creature — Demon
Vigilance
You can't play more than one card each turn. (This includes lands.)
Those who stray too far off the path find their only way back to society through contracts with the Mogu; powerful creatures with a demonic conviction for austerity.
6/6

At the beginning of your upkeep, another target creature you control becomes a red 6/1 elemental creature with trample and 'At the beginning of your end step, sacrifice this creature'.
Life's short, but demons do their best to speed up the process.
4/4
