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 sixty-eighth challenge!


The winner of the "100% Discount" poll was jacqui-pup with...

And the challenge issued by our winner was...

jacqui-pup wrote:
Inspired by the best Creative Direction of 2016 and its accompanying mechanic (A Tourney at Whiterun's fabled mechanic), design a double-faced card that has a different card type on each side. A canon example of a card like this would be Startled Awake or Westvale Abbey. Please note that "artifact -> artifact creature" is acceptable under the parameters of the challenge

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!

Current Idea.

Render

Tibalt, Spiteful Necromancer Black mana symbolRed mana symbol
Legendary Creature - Human Wizard Mythic Rare
Tap symbol: ~ deals 1 damage to target creature or player.
Whenever a creature dies, if there are at least five creature cards total among all graveyards, exile ~ then return him to the battlefield transformed under his owner's control.
2/2

Tibalt, Maniacal Torturer
Black/red color identityPlaneswalker - Tibalt
+1 Loyalty: ~ deals 2 damage to target player. That player discards a card.
-3 Loyalty: Destroy target creature.
-8 Loyalty: You get an emblem with “Whenever a source you control deals damage to an opponent, this emblem deals that much damage to each creatures that player controls.”

My first idea for my entry:

Quote:
Prophetic Revelation 4 mana symbolBlue mana symbol
Sorcery Mythic Rare
Draw three cards.
Miracle Blue mana symbol (You may cast this card for its miracle cost when you draw it if it’s the first card you drew this turn.)
3 mana symbolWhite mana symbolWhite mana symbol: Put Prophetic Revelation from your graveyard to the battlefield transformed. Activate this ability only any time you could cast a sorcery.

//

Child of Wonders
White color identity Enchantment Creature — Spirit (Mythic Rare)
You may cast spells with miracle for their miracle cost any time, and as thought they had flash. (It doesn’t have to be the first card you drew this turn.)
Discard a card with miracle: Child of Wonders gains protection from a color of your choice until end of turn.

Yes, if not, the Vanishing ability won't trigger.
Then I also suggest you give it haste in order not to waste one of the three wishes on summonsickness...

Yes, it'll receive haste and be changed to being Blue/red color identity. Fits nicely with the art anyway.

Hmm.. on the one hand, I really like the flavor, but it is kind of wordy. Might replace it later on.

Wording is a lot nicer if you make the back side a 0/1.

When Curious Mirror blocks, you may pay Blue mana symbolBlack mana symbolRed mana symbol. If you do, transform it.
When this creature transforms into Dark Reflection, exile target creature it is blocking until Dark Reflection leaves the battlefield. Dark Reflection becomes a copy of that creature except it is a Demon in addition to its other types.

@Huw - To make a long story short, a "Shrike" in the Hyperion universe is an eldritch metallic horror that is capable of, wait for it, manipulating time. You basically did a spot-on reference.

@ spazlaz - That's a very clever way to encourage people to draft multiple copies of this card!

@Zephyr: it's treated as a new object when it enters the battlefield, so it won't remember what the front face exiled. Also, this just reads like a complicated way to make a flash creature with an "as this enters the battlefield"

I really like that design. Very creative!

sdfkjgh:

I don't think this works quite how you want it to, because I don't believe it ever actually transforms into Blade of the Divine.

EDIT:

Also, just saw your entry, Ma_Rul. I think your wording for Scrap could be cleaned up a bit:

Scrap X (X, Tap an untapped Artificer you control: Put ~ onto the battlefield transformed. Activate this ability only if ~ is in your graveyard.)

Things I'm considering:
-Making front side not a mummy (if not, I'll just say "don't think about it too hard")
-Messing with Embalm cost
-Ditching card because complexity
-Upping cost of zombie making
-Leaving cost of zombie making but they enter tapped
-finding art for the token too

@Inverness
Not sure if this is after the fact but sdfjkhklhjlkasd's card does say to transform it. Or you mean that it won't actually transform before it says to attach. Either way, there'll be a misunderstanding somewhere--

@Kajarakakakak
I'd consider it being a 1/4. That's just me, because having a land deal 2 to me every other turn in UG seems kind of annoying. That's just me, though, so I could be wrong.
Also, small thing, but the name of the card and the thing that's being told to transform on the back side are different. Just a typo I know, just pointing it out.

@Gurfle: Thank for catching that! I have edited the text to the correct name. I think I'll keep it at 2 power for now unless someone else speaks up about it, but as is I think 2 damage on turns 3, 5, 7, etc. should be ok. I could be wrong, also of course... lol. Also, concerning your card, I believe your wording needs a slight changing. I think it should be written as: "Sacrifice Accursed Mummy, Tap symbol: Return target face-up exiled card that you own and that shares a name with Accursed Mummy from exile to the battlefield under your control." Also, with your other notes, I agree with the note to make the Zombie tokens enter the battlefield tapped. Also, also, do they have to be WB tokens? Seems weird (to me) to make them WB instead of the usual B just because of "flavor".

Edit:

@Gorgonzola: I would think that Meld cards do fit this challenge as long as the back sides of the cards are different than each of the front sides of the cards.

@sdfkjgh: I don't understand why it's free. Turn 1, play a creature. Turn 2, play a creature that can sacrifice itself or another creature for free (e.g. Viscera Seer, Cartel Aristocrat, etc.), then put the aura on a creature you can sacrifice. Sacrifice the enchanted creature. You now have an incredibly powerful creature on turn 2.

@Yoshi: check again. The equipment itself has hexproof & indestructible, but it doesn't grant them to equipped creature.

@Yoshi & @Asthanius: Let's examine it for a second. Blessings of Faith does absolutely nothing on its own until the enchanted creature dies. Once that happens, you've got a super-powerful equipment that on its own can't ever be equipped to anything else. However, that equipment automatically turns whatever it's equipping into Carnivorous Death-Parrot's fltxt; which, once that kill spell has been used, bounces Blade of the Divine.

Ok, so you say that's not very well balanced. I sincerely ask how you would balance it.

soopur seekrit tek
So, you think that the Blade is the part that's horribly OP. Obviously, you're not Johnny/Jenny enough. Think of all the ways in which you could completely break a 0 mana symbol-cost Aura, then come back to me.

@sdfjgh: Just make the aura cost some amount of mana. The only singular color that gets first strike, haste, and lifelink is Black (the first two abilities are tertiary, though), but you'd want to change the name of the aura, then. Personally, I'd make the aura cost Red mana symbolWhite mana symbol, but I could see it costing something like Black mana symbolBlack mana symbol.

@sdfkjgh: So to be clear, you're saying your card is balanced because the creature can still die to removal? The whole "dies to removal" argument isn't a good one. Just because a 4/4 first strike haste lifelinker for ~2 mana symbol can die to Flame Slash doesn't mean it's balanced. And even if the creature does die, the card just returns to your hand which means you can reuse it. Not being able to reequip it is a minor issue at best because of the return-to-hand part. Also, I don't see how pointing out how broken another aspect of the card is helps your case.

Gurfle
Gurfle's picture

@sdfghjk - for a while I liked your design, then I realized it was 0 mana symbol instead of White mana symbol, and that the equipment is so cheap/easy to put onto something that it's a bit... overwhelming. I'll be honest, I like the front half of your card (I'd like it more if it costed White mana symbol, by the way). Back half needs some work. Maybe just have it transform into the weapon, and then have like a 3 mana symbol or 4 mana symbol equip cost? Probably higher, though I don't know. Overall, I like the premise though. (Also I know if it has an equip cost it could clash with the flavor of being "chosen by the divine" but like, if their champion drops the sword why couldn't a lizard pick it up).

Overall, in case that was sort of hard to understand because I'm bad at paragraphs:
PROS -
-Interesting concept
-Front side works well
-It's not 500 words

CONS -
-0 mana symbol is a bad cost. Free things are always abusable somehow.
-Waaaaay too efficient to have turn 2 a giant dude
-If you really have to keep it as 0 mana symbol, cut some of the effectiveness of the artifact side. Cut the P/T boost and probably first strike?

@Kajrakles-
I dunno, I like WB zombie tokens. It represents the mummification part (the purity of death and how it's not fun but it's okay which is white) and the "evilness" associated with the living dead (which is the black part). That's just me though. And I'll look into wording. Messing with exile is bizarre.

Oh, also, another typo that I just caught - (sorry I'm bad at catching all of them) - the flavor text has the wrong "weight" on it. "Weight" is like a heavy thing, such as a world, but "wait" is an action or command, depending.

Ignore the grammar lesson- you probably knew that stuff- but pointing it out. (Apologies if it seems petty, I don't mean it like that, just trying to help out)

@Herzi: It is, though it doesn't have the Basic supertype or the Plains subtype so you can't search for it. Adjusted a few of the parameters to make it more of an investment, but do you believe the removal of the super/subtype and the rarity bump aren't enough to balance out the second ability?
