Bleak Battlegrave
Snow Land
:t:: Add one mana of any color. If this mana is spent to cast a creature or artifact spell, that permanent enters the battlefield tapped and doesn't untap during your next untap step.
What is covered by snow may be lost but never forgotten.

Spectral Streamers
Creature — Jellyfish Spirit (C)
Haunt (When this creature dies, exile it haunting target creature.)
Spectral Streamers and haunted creature have flying and can’t block creatures without flying.

Referendum of the People
Instant
Referendum of the People deals damage to target opponent equal to the number of creatures and planeswalkers you control. Referendum of the People deals damage to you equal to the number of creatures and planeswalkers that player controls.

Mathematics Class
Enchantment — Class
When Math Class enters the battlefield, create a 0/0 green and blue Fractal creature token and put X +1/+1 counters on it.
Level 2
When this Class becomes level 2, draw a number of cards equal to the different powers among creatures you control.
Level 3
At the beginning of your end step, double the number of +1/+1 counters, loyalty counters, and/or charge counters on target permanent you control.







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 don't like that battlegrave has no drawback if you just play it in a creatureless control shell.

Doesn't creatureless control still normally play mana rocks?

To me, the requirement to not have any creatures or artifacts is as much of a deckbuilding restriction as Ancient Ziggurat or Secluded Courtyard but ymmv.

Ziggurat and Pillar of the Paruns don’t seem so bad until you realize they can’t pay for abilities
