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 voted for:

Send to the Frontlines, because it just looks like a fun card to play with, and it feels like a straightforward effect that hasn't really been done before,
and
Treetop Junta, because it's a clever use of first strike.

I'm happy to be nominated for next week's poll, but I like a lot of the other nominees as well, so it's gonna be a tough fight.

Put a -1/-1 counter on target creature. Target creature you control fights it.

Prey on the Weak is so good, but it probably needs an "another" in there. I know the rules support a creature fighting itself, but it's dumb and shouldn't happen.

Two really good cards tied for first place here. I don't know how you guys manage to pick favourites every week.
I have to give it to Send To The Frontlines this week. Both cards are innovative in a way that seems obvious after having seen it. Both would open up new strategies for their respective archetypes. SttF's effect has appeared on different cards, but never in this form. Treetop Junta's ability is a fair bit like Gustcloak Sentinel, but better and in a colour that really wants it.
On Rememebrance day I have to give the nod to Send To THe Frontlines, for being a card that plays into my WWI fantasy fantasy card set dreams and for not missing an obvious guerrilla warfare joke. I mean come on, it's right there.
