Welcome to Winner is the Judge, Week 5!
How does this Work?
I will give you a theme and you will create your own original card based along the topic. I judge the cards, and whoever wins the competition also wins the rights to create and judge the next WitJ blog.
This week's Theme is: An Eye for an Eye
How do I do this?
Also simple, post your card (this includes Name, Cost, Type [And Subtypes if they exist], [Rarity isn't necessary, but it can help determine the power balance of the card], Rules Text [Flavor Text if you want to.])
Here's an example:
Jorbolad's Final Pledge
Legendary Enchantment - Rare
At the beginning of you upkeep, you may sacrifice a creature. If you do, place a pledge counter on Jorbolad's Final Pledge.
Remove four pledge counters: Put a Legendary */* Black and White Spirit creature token with Hexproof named Jorboldan, Fulfiller of Oaths onto the battlefield, where its power and toughness are equal to the sum of the power and toughness of the sacrificed creatures.
"For every man I kill in your name, I require another to remind all of my power" - Jorboldan
I will be judging each card according to several criteria:
Balance: Whether the card itself has balance when it comes to the cost/power/rarity ratio. Also, whether or not the card feels like something WotC could create and print. Don't create that "Epic card" that WotC would obviously never consider making. Just don't.
Creativity: You guys all have great ideas, I'm sure. I'm positive that you can at least think of one that would fit this contest. This is supposed to be fun! Think! Wow me! In the terms of birds, make it a parrot, not a pigeon.
Flavor: Flavor is nice. Flavor can be funny, serious, or add to the MTG storyline. I will not take off points if you don't have a flavorful but I will award bonus points if you do!
Form: Try to think of how WotC would word the card. Don't make it like the reminder text for Banding. Potential loss of points for bad form.
How do I know whether I haven't disqualified myself by accident? (aka the Rules!!!)
(The rules can vary a little with each judge, here's what I am proposing.)
1) One entry per person. This means you have one shot at this, so make it count!
2) Be ready to win. This means you have to be prepared to become the judge for next week (ie post the fifth installment, choose a theme, and judge during the whole week and ultimately choose a new winner).
Here are the past winners:
