If CARDNAME is in your hand or command zone, it plays itself automatically.
Whenever CARDNAME enters the battlefield, shuffle three copies of CARDNAME into both players' decks. Then draw a card.

Regardless of which side you're fighting on, nobody likes vermin. Trouble is, vermin like everybody. At least, everybody's food.

Ladies and gentlemen, I have combined Ixxi the Annoying with Tribbles, made them into a beast, and made it everybody's problem. It cantrips, it drains morale, it annoys everyone, and it eats up your resources little by little. In short, I have designed a pest.

Because the strawpoll was abused beyond puffying belief, the poll is now located in the official discord.

I asked Gin about it yesterday and he said "tomorrow," so sometime within the next 24 hours I guess.

Alright, nominations are closed. I'm going to wait a few more days for Tamerlane to respond and then I'll post a poll for voting.

Here lies the judgment.









Drumroll, please.

Congratulations to the winners and thank you all for participating. The decision was rather close for me--including some last minute changes just before posting--as there were so many cards that I liked.

I would like to nominate Tamerlane. Tamer's good-natured spirit and dedication to the game have single-handedly kept the tournament scene alive in Infinity Wars. His support helped me to run my latest special Lore-themed tournament, and his constant enthusiasm has helped to keep the game alive. He's a regular CDC participant and would run tournaments every week, including the month-long Rift-Runners' League and Weekly Rumbles.

Perhaps speaking most to Tamer's importance and awesomeness is his recent absence. He's been unable to run tourneys or keep up with the forums for the past few weeks and his absence is sorely missed.

Tamer ran an interview series for much of last year and into this one before he started running tournaments almost full time. I've worked closely with him and can say that he is truly a fantastic member of this community, one whose efforts deserve the highest praise.

That's right folks. In spite of all of the talk of the game dying before it could happen again, the calendar keeps moving forward and IW's pulse keeps beeping on life support, no matter how slowly. And that means it's time for another Player of the Year vote. Naturally, this calls for nominations.

The Rules:
1) You can't nominate yourself.
2) You can nominate folks for whatever reason, be it a content contribution, gameplay, or just being friendly.
3) One nomination per person.
4) All nominated parties will be notified and must accept their nomination.
5) Yodo1/Lightmare employees cannot be nominated, but volunteers can.
6) Nominations close on December 31st

There are plenty of great folks in this community. Regardless of all of the hardship and salt, let's take a moment to celebrate that.

Even though there was a forum outage, the deadline remains December 10th because there's still a week between then and now.

It's worth noting that your entries do not have to be exact copies of the card its based off of.

Greetings, Card design enthusiasts! This round of the CDC will be perhaps a bit different than others. As many of you may know, I'm a fan of the Star Trek promotional set, playing decks featuring its cards fairly regularly. There are particular Trek cards that I simply love, but have the unfortunate side effect of being, well, not legal in ranked or tournament play. As such, this challenge is to

Design a ranked-legal card based off of/inspired by a card or mechanic from the Star Trek promotional set

One example of a card that exists in the game that would fulfill this requirement is Leader of the Charge, who is essentially Riker except better because they are an overseer and can have flying (the original version didn't have to ascend but didn't gain flying, so that's a thing). Missions were also introduced in this set. A full list of the cards can be found here.

Your card can be based off of an individual card (like Riker) or based off of a mechanical idea (like stealing other players' characters). The exception to this is missions--while they were introduced in this set, if you design a mission you must connect it in some other way to the set other than the fact that it is a mission.

Judging will be based off of how appropriate your shift to a ranked-legal faction (or factionless) is--did you just dump the card in that faction, is that design better suited for another faction?--in addition to normal design considerations.

The contest will close on December 10th
