Last Week's Winner




Waiting on the poll
And god looked upon CotW and saw it was good. Seriously, Neru's on a tear here.

Discard a card.
At the beginning of your upkeep, you may return Bad Ideas to your hand from your graveyard.
Fast and furiously, he cast curiously, the novice little goblin mage.

Racket :b:
Sorcery (C)
Target player discards a card and gets a debt counter. (Players may pay to lose a debt counter. A player loses 1 life at the beginning of their end step if they have any number of debt counters.)
At its highest levels, the Orzhov is horrifyingly beautiful, full of blinding virtue and masked sin. At the street level, dealing with the Orzhov is little different from dealing with any other gang.

Out of the Loop
Sorcery
Take an extra turn after this one. Exile a target permanent until the end of that turn. Exile Out of the Loop.
- What are you all talking about? Have I missed something that went over yesterday?
- Brother, it seems that you just missed yesterday,
period.





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 nominated the first two and wanted to nominate the third, so my vote is sort of pointless this time around.

I like the three cards this time.
Already commented on bad ideas on its thread.
Racket is simple, but works.
Out of the loop reminds me of Karn's Temporal Sundering. It should probably have a delayed triggered to return the card to the battlefield (instead of just being "until end of turn") tho.

Caveat is debt counters is a WotC mechanic. It was the original Orzhov mechanic for RNA before afterlife.

I really wish Out of the Loop targeted a player like Karn's Temporal Sundering in order to avoid potential fizzling. That's a small nit, though, and it's still my favorite of these designs.

+1

Also I wish it exiles the permanent until the beginning of the next non-extra turn. could be more flavorful.
Like your extra turn is the loop and that permanent is Out of the loop...

Just a bit short of perfect.

At the beginning of each player's upkeep, that player investigates. (That player creates a colorless Clue artifact token with "2, Sacrifice this artifact: Draw a card.")
Mystery Machine can't be blocked as long as defending player controls a Clue token.
Crew 1
