Last Week's Winner




Still a good ways to go yet.
It took 31 failed attempts but Yarium's persistence paid off.
Spoiler



The Contenders



Jace's Decree
Enchantment - Aura
Enchant planeswalker you control
: Prevent all combat damage that would be dealt to enchanted planeswalker until end of turn.
: Return target spell targeting enchanted planeswalker to its owners hand.
"Here, my word is law," - Jace Beleren, the Living Guildpact

Sepulchral Dawn
Enchantment — Aura (M)
Enchant creature card in your graveyard
You may cast enchanted creature card. When you do, attach Sepulchral Dawn to target creature card in your graveyard.
If a creature card would be put into your graveyard from anywhere, exile it instead.
"Get up, lazy bones! You still have a debt to pay."
—Silvissa, pontiff of resurrection

Branches of the Abyss
Creature — Hydra Horror
Haste
A deck can have only one card named ~.
If ~ would leave the battlefield, it's owner shuffles it into their library instead. Then, for the rest of the game, if that player would draw a card named ~, they may put it onto the battlefield instead and draw an additional card.
It sprouts throughout reality like weeds, until all remaining is a thicket of its heads unending.
7/2

Lernaean Blood
:1::b::g:
Enchantment - Aura
Enchant Creature
Enchanted creature has Infect
If enchanted creature would be destroyed, regenerate it and it deals 2 damage to you.
"It will cure what ails you... but you will ail the world."

Silly wrote:
Spreading Darkness
Sorcery (R)
Destroy target creature.
Overload
"The power to strike down thine enemies," the demon agreed. It did not mention however, the ability to control such power.





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.

Faithful Companion -

At the beginning of your end step, if a creature you control has a loyalty counter on it, return Faithful Companion from your graveyard to the battlefield tapped.

Reign in Blood
Enchantment — Saga (R)
(As this Saga enters and after your draw step, add a lore counter. Sacrifice after III.)
I, II — Destroy target permanent.
III ─ Create a 4/4 black legendary human warrior creature token named Teryoc the Usurper with Delirium ─ +2/+2 and Threshold ─ Indestructible.
The secret to warfare was knowing when to sacrifice.

Infesting Souldrinker
:2::b:
Creature - Worm Horror
If a creature you don't control would die, instead exile it and Infesting Souldrinker, then return it to the battlefield under your control. When you do, it gains "When this creature dies, return an exiled card you own named Infesting Souldrinker to the battlefield".
2/2


Mineralis Crafter
Creature — Elemental (R)
3/3
When Mineralis Crafter enters the battlefield, target land you control becomes a copy of another target permanent until Mineralis Crafter leaves the battlefield.
The crafters of Vissage weave the vines that populate the plane into patterns that help its travelers find their way.

Create a card that uses a keyword mechanic first introduced in Time Spiral Block

Haunting Fury
Enchantment - Aura
Enchant Creature
Whenever enchanted creature attacks, it gets +X/+0 and gains trample, where X is equal to the number of creature cards in your graveyard. Sacrifice enchanted creature at the end of combat.
Aura Swap

Death Spiral
Sorcery
Put a -1/-1 counter on each creature. Exile Death Spiral with three time counters on it.
Flashback (You may cast this card from your graveyard for its flashback cost. Then exile it.)
Suspend 3 - (Rather than cast this card from your hand, you may pay and exile it with three time counters on it. At the beginning of your upkeep, remove a time counter. When the last is removed, cast it without paying its mana cost.)

It can be countered, but it'll just keep coming back. I love recursion.

Architect of Perfect Worlds
Creature - Human (U)
Fabricate 2
Afterlife 2
2/2
