Welcome to the Card of the Week Contest! To participate in this Contest you'll have to design a card along the contest guidelines and throw it into the arena with other competitors' entries! At the end of each week, a winner will be determined by forum poll. The winner's card will be rendered and featured on the Welcome page, and the winner decides the challenge for the next week's Contest!

Here we go, competitors: our hundred and forty-sixth challenge!


The winner of the "Go Big or Go Home" poll was Ziolang with...

And the challenge issued by our winner was...

There is a rather rare concept that has been used throughout Magic's history. This concept is when an effect does something plus something else. For some recent examples, we have Hardened Scales (which changes +1/+1 counter placement with a "plus one" clause) and Welding Sparks (which does set damage "plus" the number of artifacts you have). So, for this contest, design a card that has an effect using the word "plus".

To increase your chances of winning and to also make creating the poll easier on whomever is doing so, please try to use a render.
Additionally, please try to keep your entry edits all in one post - if you need to change it you can put your old entry in a spoiler marked "Old entry" and leave the newest rendition to be seen. Just use the edit button in the bottom/right of your original post.

And now, time to begin the challenge!

Best of luck, competitors!

First idea
Harpy's song 2 mana symbolBlack mana symbolBlue mana symbolWhite mana symbol
Sorcery Mythic Rare
Each player discards their hand, then they draw cards equal to the highest number of cards discard this way plus the number of harpies you control.
Then each opponent reveals their hand, you may cast a creature card revealed this way without playing it's mana cost.

Old Entry
Early simple idea

Presents for All 2 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlue mana symbol

Enchantment Rare

Flash
If a player would draw any number of cards instead they draw that many cards plus one.

Not a massive fan of this and will probably try and think of something better if I have time


New Entry not sure on the wording might not actually work
Didn't like my original so I have updated to the below:
second old
Apprentice Necromancer 1 mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Creature - Human Wizard Mythic Rare
Whenever any number of creatures would be put on the battlefield from your graveyard, you may put that many plus one onto the battlefield instead.
2/2

Updated from feedback on wording and costs

Necromancer's Aide 1 mana symbolBlack mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Creature - Human Wizard Mythic Rare
Whenever one or more creatures would be returned to the battlefield from your graveyard, you may return that many plus one to the battlefield instead.
2/2

Also thought this might be fun since Dierk was raised from the dead

Decided against dierk maybe next time
Dierk, Geistmage 1 mana symbolBlack mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Legendary Creature - Zombie Wizard Mythic Rare
Whenever one or more creatures would be returned to the battlefield from your graveyard, you may return that many plus one to the battlefield instead. Those creatures become a Spirit in addition to their other types.
2/2

Really going to need help with the wording if anyone has any ideas. I will sort out art and a render as I know I have a decent art already saved for this kind of flavour.

looking for feedback and help on the wording as well.

Apologies if the wording of this is a bit skewed, but had it when I read the challege, and just got the inspiration for the body for it to inhabit

Edits

Thanks Sylphiod, changing Whenever to If A happy smile

Looked on the wiki for a better word than action, and found effect. Hope that works better.

Instead of plus X more times, adding in plus X instead

Bayley, The Hugger
2 mana symbolWhite mana symbolBlue mana symbolGreen mana symbol
Mythic Rare
Legendary Creature - Human Warrior

If a spell or ability has a player perform an effect, that player does that effect plus X instead, where X is the number of players.

2/4

What this card wants to do, as an example Divination in a two player game would allow you to draw four cards. If an opponents uses thoughtseize in a 4 player game, they get to pick 5 cards from the players hard. Help on the wording to make this effect a reality would be very much appreciated.

"Wizard? More like wizNERD hahaha am I right??"

for those of you keeping track, yes, that does work out to -3/-0 and +0/+3, every time.

edit: it's now -1/+1, every time.

@Sylphiod you have a problem with harpies
@daij_djan would be a little confusing with sac costs but otherwise it is good enough.
@Finofashark that ability is normally on much high CMCs otherwise fine enough.
@Nhoj2307 Not sure on the wording but <if> should be used not whenever.
@marshmallow Of course it will equal 3 it is 2N/N+1 though if the number of cards in your graveyard or battlefield is zero. Then X equals one

@marshmellow am I doing maths wrong? With 2 nonland perms + 3 lands I got 4 after applying BODMAS so:
2 + 3 * 2 / 5 + 1 RD.
Multiplication goes first (as its to the left of the division) so we get:
2 + 6 / 5 + 1
Then we have division(as it is to the right of the multiplication):
2 + 1.2 + 1
Add it all up:
4.2 round down to 4
I'm sure I am wrong but would be good to know why
@sylphiod howling mine, kami of the crescent moon, Dictate of Kruphix are the cards I had in mind for the effect as it applies to all players. Is it because it applies to all draws? It probably can go up in cost but I will likely just scrap the card and try something else once my brain turns on (as indicated by basic maths causing me problems)

For this one, I was inspired by the recent failure of Seth-Probably-Better-Known-As-Saffron-Olive's mono-blue mill deck. I have a bit of a love-hate thing with mill decks- on the one hand, I hate playing against them, since they are generally miserable. On the other hand, they're a really underdog deck in modern (and in general), so I feel like I have to root for them.

So, I figured if I design a card to make it a tiered deck, then I can just hate it without having to root for it. Big smile

@Fin correct because it effects all draws is why it should probably be more.
But on the math when applying Bodmas in written it is (2+3)2/(5) +1 using your example. Look at the commas. The comma divides it up so the addition goes first. If it wasn't divided up with commas you would be correct.

@sdfkjgh: No.

I get that you design your cards with flavor in mind, but no.

Everything I can identify that's wrong with this card has been pointed out many, many times over by many, many designers - the overly complex mana cost, the unnecessary keyword soup, the unnecessary typeline soup, the sheer length of the card text, the apparent belief that a card is better and cooler and more exciting just by virtue of having more stuff on it, the wildly varying power level, the weird nonstandard frame that makes everything even harder to read, and you have clearly listened to exactly none of this critique. So I'm half-tempted not to bother even pointing this out.

But please, for the love of all that's good and holy, next time you enter one of these contests, stop and think: Does this card really need all this stuff on it? Even if you've designed it to be a flavorful card, discard flavor for a moment, and look at it from a mechanical perspective, and if, mechanically, it's an ugly, inelegant, overloaded card, swallow your artistic impulses and change things.

@sdfkjgh Just as a rule of thumb, when your design has so much text on it that it makes the text on the card barely readable, you might want to simplify.

If a spell or ability would target a number of cards in a graveyard, the owner of that spell or ability may choose that many targets plus one instead.

@sfdkjgh well thehuw could have said it better. I am in the flavour camp But he is correct. I'll try to say it a little less.
1st. Too much in here, it would be a different argument if it was a single large ability with some keywords at top, but this card has too many abilities.
2nd. It makes every creature everywhere a vampire, then why does it say vampires in the other lines it should just say creatures. Also it has an ability that effects every creature and one that affects yours only.
3rd. The ability with the counters is just no on square creature it triples it'a power every hit. On itself it gets +8/+8, it makes a 2/2 unblockable a three turn kill at 20 life. And with life gain it makes it almost pointless not to swing.
4th. Sac to make it indestructible and hexproof, the I can't be removed is completely unneeded.
5th the odd mana cost doesn't justify this card, at 7 or any cmc.
Sfdkjgh you know I love flavour cards and think power cards do have their place, but this one goes to far. Take a look at some of you past few entries though, they are much better then this, buddy.

That being said well I don't think you can change this to fit into this COTW it would certainly be possible to make it a viable card, remove that make al vampires part and lower the counters to +1/+1 only. I'd recommend removing the giving lifelink:

@jacqui-pup, if I understand correctly, which I very well may not, isn't the third ability(sorry second) unneeded? As with out it, you should still gain 2 life.
Because, extort goes on the stack, life loss is boosted to 2, opponent loses 2 life, you gain 2 life as extort reads "gain that much life" in regards to the life the opponent lost.
Also, is it meant to effect damage rather than just straight life loss?

@Wapulatus, in your flavour text, I believe a comma should follow "wants to".

@thehuw, the name "Oni Grip" seems pretty odd to me, may I suggest "Grip of an Oni"?

I've got a little idea here.

Ruthless Repurposing 2 mana symbolWhite mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Sorcery Uncommon
As an additional cost to cast ~, sacrifice a creature.
Distribute X +1/+1 counters among creatures you control, where X is the sacrificed creature's power plus one.
"I no longer have a need for you. Don't worry, there are people on Vatraquaz that might find parts of you useful."

(I feel like this can be Black/green mana symbol, but I want to try it as White/black mana symbol first.)

@sdfkjgh, I must agree with Sylphiod on this, you should probably drop the card down to something such as this

Shikhli, First to Feed White mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlack mana symbolRed mana symbol
Legendary Creature - Vampire Mythic Rare
Flying, first strike, lifelink (no deathtouch for the last ability)
Vampires you control gain "whenever this creature deals combat damage to an opponent put a +1/+1 counter on it".
Sacrifice a vampire: ~ deals 1 plus the number of +1/+1 counters on the sacrificed creature damage to target creature.
4/4

The last ability also makes it contest viable.

Headin in with my entry. Honestly not too happy with it but I actually did have trouble coming up with an idea I was comfortable with. So the entry might be subject to change either way. It is always a potential spoiler for a set I'm thinking up at the moment. As usual, spoiler about the design, then the card.

Design Philosophy
As I said, this contest definitely was harder for me. Most of what could be done with the idea was already done by other entries. It seems like a very open ended challenge, but most things will just end up being "plus 1" added on to something you do normally already. An additional card, an additional damage, and additional life. So I was already brooding on what I wanted to try and do that wouldn't exactly be too much like this.

Funnily enough, I was very recently looking into making some cards using "plus" as the set this card will probably be in is essentially a purposely old styled set. So it will call back to mechanics that aren't seen much now a days. Such examples are Angry Mob or Gaea's Avenger. Besides this "gimmick", the entire set will have a focus on another style of gimmick that might make for interesting play, but thats for in the future if I plan on even doing anything with this set idea.

Anyways, knowing that I'd want to aim for an older styled card, I thought it'd be a good idea to do the art first...but I made the card idea first. To be honest, this is one of the few ideas that just kind of...popped up in my head. There wasn't a complicated thought process for once, I actually just thought of this product and thought it'd be interesting. Such things that might have inspired it would be Ball Lightning styled cards along with things like Blind Seer that I've loved for changing colors of permanents. It's not commonly an effect that is too useful, but for protections and things like Blue Elemental Blast you could really get interesting benefits out of it. Another inspiration might have been Terra Ravager as well slightly. Could have maybe had the trigger be on attack alike it too, but for the cost it feels better to have it be permanent.

Now like I said, I'm not too happy with my entry but either way I find it to be an interesting card. The name itself will be referencing the set it comes from more than likely.

Crelvorian Lions 1 mana symbolRed mana symbolRed mana symbol
Creature - Cat
Haste, trample
Whenever Crelvorian Lions enters the battlefield, all nonland permanents become red until end of turn.

Mahx:

You could probably word it like this:
"Converge — Rainbow Cannon deals X plus four damage to target creature or player, where X is the number of colors of mana spent to cast CARDNAME."

Compared to the old wording:

"Rainbow Cannon deals 4 damage to target creature or player, plus one more damage for each color of mana spent to cast it."

So you are correct in that the Converge wording is longer. I still prefer it, but a case could be made for the simpler wording.

Actually, I just had a quick talk to her and she has two ways in mind to approach this. If the shorter one works, it'll take her around five mere minutes - if it doesn't, it takes a little longer but definitely still can be done. So should I ask her to give it a try tomorrow - and the most important question: Which template version would you like to use? It would be best if you could prepare a render with the given template (in case I simply don't have it!) and already correct artist credit.

Should I add her name somewhere as well?

Both would be the best indeed. So credit goes to BackwardEcho as well as studio Sanzigen.

EDIT: It actually doesn't matter much, but I'd say yes.
EDIT 2: If there's still room left, this would be nice (yet as far as I know her is no must Winking smiley ).
EDIT 3: (concerning below: I'll send you a message to not go too much offtopic here any further Big smile )


Hiatus is finally over!

Didn't Ordet (Studio) also participate in the creation of the Black Rock Shooter tv series?
EDIT: Yeah. Got a little bit carried away, sorry bout that

Didn't like my original so I have updated to the below:

second old
Apprentice Necromancer 1 mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Creature - Human Wizard Mythic Rare
Whenever any number of creatures would be put on the battlefield from your graveyard, you may put that many plus one onto the battlefield instead.
2/2

Updated from feedback on wording and costs

Necromancer's Aide 1 mana symbolBlack mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Creature - Human Wizard Mythic Rare
Whenever one or more creatures would be returned to the battlefield from your graveyard, you may return that many plus one to the battlefield instead.
2/2

Also thought this might be fun since Dierk was raised from the dead

Decided against Dierk maybe another time
Dierk, Geistmage 1 mana symbolBlack mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Legendary Creature - Zombie Wizard Mythic Rare
Whenever one or more creatures would be returned to the battlefield from your graveyard, you may return that many plus one to the battlefield instead. Those creatures become a Spirit in addition to their other types.
2/2

Really going to need help with the wording if anyone has any ideas. I will sort out art and a render as I know I have a decent art already saved for this kind of flavour.

looking for feedback and help on the wording as well.
