Card of the Week Contest: Round 2

Holiday theme! (and a pretty obvious one at that...)

Welcome to the second CotW competition. As I'm sure is obvious, this week is going to be a holiday contest. What I'm asking of you this week is to create a card using the following as a guide:
- The card must be humorous. Holiday cards are always tongue in cheek affairs, just look at the Holiday Cards put out by WotC for inspiration.
- The card does not have to be, but is encouraged to be, either Artifact, Colorless (non-artifact), Multicolor, Land, or a Hybrid. WotC has already done WUBRG, and I think it would be interesting to see something that hasn't been touched on.
- This card can break the rules, it is, if you've followed the first guideline, an Un themed card. Have some fun, make people laugh. A happy smile
- Design your card with Magic New Extra in mind. This means anything you can do in that template, you can do for this contest (extra colors included, but please don't overdo it.)
- And finally, you must use one of the following pieces of art as inspiration for your card, and please note in your post which you've chosen (saying "Art A" or "Art B" is perfectly fine.) Entries without this specification will not be added to the poll.

The pieces to choose from are in the spoiler below:

Ralph the Flying Reindeer by Lisa Payne (blindedangel (DA))

Polar Mess by ktshy (DA)

I has a presents... by Kevin Chin

Good luck everyone! The entry deadline is Sat. 25th 11:59PM CST. Due to the deadline falling on a holiday, the subsequent poll will be open for 2 days (48 hours) instead of 1 day to allow people more opportunities to vote during the muck of running about on the holidays.

@windandfire, Sensei Le Roof, Sewn-Eye, The Demo: You guys are making me institute a new contest rule... email or PM me at pifro what art you've based your cards on. From this point on (and for you four as well if you don't contact me - and not in this thread please...): Entries without this specification will not be added to the poll.

EDIT: Ok, I'm narrowing that to windandfire and The Demo... I think the other two are obvious, but you guys created more ambiguous card entries, so please contact me or I will have to disqualify you. Sorry, but the contest is to design for a piece of art. In the future, everybody should be more careful to list their chosen piece of art in their entry.

Dragonstocking 6 mana symbol
Artifact (R)
As Dragonstocking enters the battlefield, choose a Dragon card you can see from your seat and put it into a Christmas stocking.
When it's the 25th of December, sacrifice Dragonstocking. If you do, search target Christmas stocking for a Dragon card. You may cast that card without paying its mana cost.

Ruling:
- its second ability triggers if you set every clock in the room to the 25th of December and you are wearing winter clothing, but only if you hold a Cheatyface in your hand while searching the stocking. [ElmdorMesdoram 2010/12/21]

As an aside, I drummed up a little something to use for my "I made this for a forum game" set. If anyone's interested, I can put the .mse-symbol file up on Pifro.

Pichoro's handy rarity symbol style was instrumental in making this. Winking smiley

Spoiler:

Maybe it could even be used for the site? It's been bothering me, now, how the color for the mythic symbol I made is off when compared to the MSE-rendered symbols. Stick out your tongue Compare M Mana for MTG Extra and !

I dunno. I've just been tootin' around. I was thinking maybe it could be used for the winning renders, but really I've been wanting to make an M10-style symbol for a while.

As Dragonstocking enters the battlefield, choose a Dragon card you can see from your seat and put it into a Christmas stocking.
When it's the 25th of December, sacrifice Dragonstocking. If you do, search target Christmas stocking for a Dragon card. You may cast that card without paying its mana cost.

Awww, for me, you shouldn't have.

Since I'm a nice guy, and it is Christmas, I'm going to give everyone one chance to change the rarity of their card. Any entry not featuring a rarity was given the Special rarity by default. Also, I'm going to ask pantherpage to read the rule he ignored about the card art inclusion. I don't like repeating myself, and in the future I won't. If you don't contact or email me with the info as to what art you used your entry will be disqualified.

This brings me to my next point, pay attention to how your individual entries look in the spoilers above. With the exception of the art links, this is how I would like submissions to look in the future. It would save me a lot of time as we have a lot of entries if I could just open up your post, take the bbcode you typed, and copy it over. What you see above took me about an hour to arrange... I just ask that everybody keeps this in mind, or I may have to institute a rule that improperly formatted entries will automatically be disqualified (this means you must include rarity, creature type, etc. and in the case of art contests, the art chosen.) I'd also like to remind everybody that when you post a card, that entry is your final entry, so think it out, take your time, and don't try to submit something else or tell me "I'll get back to it" later. Finally, please do not submit entries without a text version. I don't care how nice you think you're render looks, I still have to rerender it, and I still have to type it out for the poll. Thanks for reading this, and I'm really trying not to be nasty here, just asking for some help. A happy smile

EDIT: And for everybody going nuts over the new emotes (and not actually contributing to the discussion of their use or replacing the old ones, etc.... just "trying them out"), spam is spam and that doesn't belong here. DO IT ELSEWHERE.

*quiet cough* @modly gods, or godly mods: Art_Freak's last post somehow caused my entry to vanish. Obviously Art_Freak saw it and included it in his spoiler, but it's no longer on this page. (as a quick find for "Lord of 13" tells you).

Ooops, I deleted it... you had one before kiku, then one after, so I deleted that one because I thought it was a duplicate and you were just dinking around with the new rarity symbols. Go ahead and repost it if you want. Sorry about that. A sad &#039;frowny&#039;
