I'm bored, so I'm doing a You Make the Card of the Week contest this week.

Simple rules:
  • Only one card (or group of cards, if asked for) per person per criteria.
  • No Un-cards unless specifically asked for (will use the term "Un-card," so a "card with/about a joke" is not an Un-card).
  • Do not submit any of these cards to the Card of the Week thread until "grades" are given.

Simple information:
  • "Grades" are just my opinions of the cards. I can be easily impressed or overbearingly scrutinous, so poster beware.
  • There will only be two criteria. If this becomes a weekly thing (again*) only special events (like new sets or certain holidays) will possibly yield more than two criteria in a week.
  • The winner of each criteria will have their card nominated by me to this week's Card of the Week.
  • In the case of a criteria that asks for multiple cards, the card I perceive as the "best" of the bunch from the winning selection will be submitted as a nomination, as opposed to all of the cards. Exceptions may apply.

*


1st Criteria: CLOSED
This is what it was



2nd Criteria: CLOSED
This is what it was

Rampant Brawler
Creature - Minotaur Warrior
First Strike
Whenever a creature blocks Rampant Brawler, Rampant Brawler fights it.
3/5
The Brawlers of Deredos are in fact, oracles with a very limited view of the future. Few know of this secret, perhaps because prophecies of imminent battles are often self-fulfilling.

You said minimum of ten words. How about 35?

Flickering Anomaly

Had this idea for a purposefully badly designed card.

Bloodied wand Battlemage :g::r:
Creature- Human wizard
discard two cards:target creature gets +1/+1 until end of turn.
"Mumbling the invocations and a simple, cudgel-like wand both point to a lousy mage, but the latter also points to something else."
3/3

If I do grade this on Friday, it would be about 24 hours from now. Depends on how late FNM runs. Worst case scenario I'd end up grading this an additional 10 or so hours later.
