Card of the Week Contest: Round 6

This week we'll be doing something a little different. This week we're going to pay homage to a classic movie: Disney's Robin Hood. What I want you to do is submit your idea of a card representing either one of the heroes or a card representing one of the villains. The final stipulation is that the card must be a creature card. Two winners will be determined by the poll - the best hero, and the best villain - and both will go on the front page. There will be no runner-ups this week.

Now, I realize that Disney is not everyone's first choice, but come on, most of us, if not all of us, grew up on these films, and this one features so many unique animals and classic fantasy classes that I'm certain you'll be able to create some very interesting entries.

For those unfamiliar with the film, you can actually watch it on youtube, and here is the first part:

Video in here:

Rules (failure to follow the following will result in automatic disqualification):
1) Absolutely do not post a rendered image of your card. It will not be used anyways, and will be removed. Only text entries will be accepted.
2) All entries must be complete. This includes type, rarity, and all other aspects of the card.
3) All entries are final. When you post a card, that's it. No changes may be made to that card.
4) If the contest revolves around designing a card for a piece of art of your choice, you must list what piece of art you've chosen.
5) Please help keep this thread clean, and do not post anything but entries and questions directly pertaining to the current competition in this thread. Questions about rules and requirements are fine to post.

*) All entries should be in the following format (if you are unfamiliar with BBcode, click here):

Name [COST]
Type - Subtype [RARITY]
Rules text.
"Flavor text."

Something like this with all the info in place:

This rule is not mandatory and not following it will not disqualify you, but it is a suggestion and would make my job easier and if this does become a serious issue, it will also become a rule. Just a heads up and a polite request that we don't get to where it needs to be a rule.

The rules are not optional. If you take a tl;dr (too long; didn't read) approach to them, then I take the same to your entry and will not include it in the poll. Please keep this in mind.

This week I will be giving out no warnings for violating the contest rules. If you violate them, I'm not going to waste my breath on it, I just won't include your entry in the poll at the end of the week.

The entry deadline is 11:59PM CST 01/22/11. Voting will last 1 day after that, so please be prepared to cast your vote!

Robin Hood 1 mana symbolWhite mana symbol
Legendary Creature - Fox Rogue {R}
Whenever Robin Hood deals combat damage, you gain a gold counter (you may spend a gold counter to gain 1 life or add 1 mana symbol to your mana pool).
You may move gold counters from yourself onto other players.

I think it should be noted that gold counters isn't my own original idea.

I just wanted to chime in and think that this competition and the front page winners are a fantastic addition to the site. I haven't been joining in and voting because there is just too many cards to choose from, and I haven't the time to wade in. But I did want to say that I really enjoy the front page card contest and wanted to give my support. A happy smile
