Last Week's Winner

I'm going to Echo Robin's sentiment and advise you all stay home this new year.

Spoiler


The Contenders


Echo_Robin wrote:
Vea, God of Artificial Reality |
Legendary Artifact Creature - God (M)
Indestructible
As long as your devotion to colorless is less than five, ~ isn't a creature. (Each in the mana costs of permanents you control counts toward your devotion to colorless.)
At the beginning of your upkeep, you may return target artifact card from your graveyard to your hand.
5/5

Echo_Robin wrote:
Spell Shatter |
Instant (U)
If was spent to cast ~, counter up to one target creature spell. If was spent to cast ~, counter up to one target artifact spell. If was spent to cast ~, counter up to one target instant spell. If was spent to cast ~, counter up to one target enchantment spell. If was spent to cast ~, counter up to one target sorcery spell.

Echo_Robin wrote:
Devagath, Bone Revenant |
Legendary Creature - Skeleton Knight (M)
Double strike
Undying (When this creature dies, if it had no +1/+1 counters on it, return it to the battlefield under its owner's control with a +1/+1 counter on it.)
When ~ dies, if it had exactly one +1/+1 counter on it, return it to the battlefield with two +1/+1 counters on it. If it had exactly two +1/+1 counters on it, return it to the battlefield with three +1/+1 counters on it instead.
2/2


Cato wrote:
The Shadow Amulet :5:
Legendary Artifact
At the beginning of each upkeep, tap or untap target permanent.
If you control a planeswalker, you may instead tap target permanent and untap another target permanent.
In the wrong hands, it could enslave an entire city. In the right ones, it could enslave an entire plane.



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?
Nearly any card posted since the current CotW thread went live is eligible. It doesn't even have to be the first time the card was posted. Un cards are valid.

What's Not Eligible?
  • Your own cards. You can only nominate cards by other people
  • Cards from an old thread you reposted yourself.
  • Nominations that result from collusion. If a nomination is made in exchange for some sort of favour, or under some sort of threat, then it 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.

The Shadow Amulet should say "...you may tap or untap target permanent," so it doesn't run into weirdness where you target something intending to tap it, your opponent activates a tap ability in response, and you're forced to untap it because of the wording of the ability.

Good call, I had forgotten about that weird rules clause. Here's hoping BelangiaJo also forgets about it when he does grades.

I think TP just nominates my cards as a way to humiliate me by showing that nobody would vote for them.

I think that on spell shatter, and should be switched (so that green is artifact and red is instant), as makes a lot more sense on artifacts than instants or sorceries.

As far as design choices go, I support green for anti-instants.

:paranoid:

Mostly it was just that I didn't want to run a CotW with just 2 nominations and I can't count gud. You did however, beat out all the other cards I found in my hasty search.

Jane Wandering
Planeswalker — Jane
When Jane Wandering enters the battlefield or whenever you planeswalk, you may create a 1/1 black legendary Cat creature token named Woof.
— Planeswalk. If you planeswalk to a phenomenon or to an unstable plane this way, shuffle Jane Wandering into your library, then draw a card.
— Exile Jane Wandering. If you do, search your library for a Jane planeswalker card and put it on to the battlefield. Then shuffle your library.


And all the cards from that whole damn thread because DAMN.

I hate to do this, but here we go again. I am too sure this is nice.
Self-advertisement time ! (Since this is my card, I can't nominate it. But YOU can.)

Smoking Pipe
Artifact (R)
: Target player shuffles his or her library.
Come, my honored guest ! Let your suspicions and worries be cleared by this sweet, thick smoke.



Can I ask for Card of the Week nomination ?

Myr Mindservant is pretty close. Moreover, shuffling your library too much is frowned on in competitive circles because it wastes a lot of time.

Useless Common, this is a card of the week thread. You did not make that card this week. It did not get a nomination the last time either. It is disqualified from being nominated.
Also, a lot of good cards, even great cards get overlooked by card of the week contests. This board has its tastes and its fetishes, it's not like cotw cards are objectively the best, just the most popular of the ones people bothered to bring up. So let it go, and make more cards.

I feel guilty for doing this...
I reserve the right to behave like a classic cartoonish villain and to make a (doomed) takeover attempt every Saturday morning.
Now, I'd like to notice that nothing in the rules says that proposing (!) a nomination of same thing multiple times is illegal. (It would not be a joke nomination, even if I am joking. I am not.)

Nominating something twice isn't really effective. Not because, it's banned, but because being doubly nominated isn't a thing. The card still only gets one checkbox on the voting list. If you make a nuisance of yourself though, there are rules about that beyond those governing CotW.
If this is about not getting nominated, know that I almost did nominate you UR card from a few days ago. Also know that I've only won this friggin thing twice. Twice! People are going to start thinking that there are better designers out there then me.

I'm not sure how many times I've won, but it felt like a very long time for the first one if I remember correctly. I'm actually emotionally invested in it as well. I watch it and get excited when my cards are nominated and even more so when I win. Even after all these years.

Wouldn't it be better to include a ridiculously high equip cost, like :8: or something, so that players can feel clever and subversive for cheating the equip?
