Last Week's Winner



Ancient Legend recounts how, at the sunset of history, a brave YMTCer found the answer to their Q. And that the real treasure was inside them all along.
Spoiler



The Contenders



Eph wrote:
Illithid Detective -
Creature - Horror Advisor
When Illithid Detective enters the battlefield, each opponent discards seven cards.
"You are probably wondering why I've gathered you all here today. Or what 'today' is, or where's 'here', or who you all are."
3/3

Murderous Naga
Creature - Naga Assassin (R)
Deathtouch
Whenever Murderous Naga attacks, sacrifice another creature.
Whenever you sacrifice a creature, target creature an opponent controls gets -X/-X until end of turn, where X is the sacrificed creature's power.
1/3

Libe wrote:
Yawgmoth's Manifestation

Enchantment (M)
Skip your draw step.
At the beginning of your upkeep, put a -1/-1 counter on each creature.
Whenever a creature dies, draw a card.

Cato wrote:
The Guide :1::u::g:
Legendary Creature - Human Advisor
~ and other nontoken creatures you control have evolve.
(Whenever a creature enters the battlefield under your control, if that creature has greater power or toughness than this creature, put a +1/+1 counter on this creature.)
1/1
"Let's grow together."

Protective Matrix :5:
Artifact
:x::x:: Artifacts you control gain hexproof, indestructible and ":x:: this artifact loses hexproof and indestructible until end of turn. Any opponent can activate this ability" until your next upkeep.
"I'm no fighter, but I have my tools and a plane's worth of untapped starlight. As long as I have an arm that can build, I will keep my people safe."

Yarium wrote:
Atlean Gossamer |
Artifact Creature - Golem Drake | {C}
Flying
Soulbonds with blue creatures. (You may pair this creature with another unpaired blue creature when either enters the battlefield. They remain paired for as long as you control both of them.)
At the beginning of your upkeep, if Atlean Gossamer isn't paired with another creature, pay or sacrifice Atlean Gossamer.
The forms of the wispy constructs were as varied as the people inhabiting them, but they all shared a common weakness; a need for connection.
[2/3]




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.

I may not be around on Sunday to start the next CotW. It's kind of up in the air.
Any volunteers to take the reigns for a day?

Choose one -
  • Target player sacrifices an untapped creature.
  • Target player sacrifices a tapped creature.
The hope of absolution does as much to control a people as the fear of punishment.
