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 never liked the mechanical trouble of using DFCs regardless if you use a sleeve or a checklist card. But it's worth it if there's something cool on the back.

Dual land could be

:t:: Add :c:.
:t:: Put a counter on.
:t:: Add :w: or :b:, activate only if this has a counter on.

(But then it wouldn't meet the contest criteria and you wouldn't get two lots of flavor text)

Once the week is over, I'll post another line for each vote that it gets. :angel:

Cascade of Failures -
Sorcery
Cascade of Failures deals 3 damage to target creature or planeswalker. If it dies, its controller discards a card at random. If a creature card is discarded this way, its controller sacrifices a random permanent. If a land is sacrificed this way, exile half of its controller's graveyard at random, rounded up. If the targeted creature or planeswalker card, the discarded creature card and the sacrificed land card are all exiled this way, return them to the battlefield under your control.
Historians agree that this was not Argus Kos's finest day.

The text would be so small on the card, but I don't care, it's worth it.

Deaths by damage happen after the card's resolution?

Well, let's make damage an on-cast trigger!

Just change it to " If it dies this turn...", which is only two additional words.

nit: "When it dies this turn..." It has to be a delayed trigger. Delayed "if" doesn't mean anything to the rules.
