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

--- Card Design Challenge Rules ---
1) The Judge appoints a challenge, it can be anything, making new card, redesigning an old one or whatever you wish.
2) All that wish to participate submit their card design. Each participant may only submit one entry per challenge, you may however edit your post as many times as you wish till the deadline.
3) If you edit your post you should make an additional post in this thread informing of the edit to make sure that the updated version of the card will be judged. The post should contain the full updated card details as well as a brief summary of what changed from your original submission.
4) After an announced deadline the Judge decides a winner. The winner then becomes the Judge for the next round.
5) All entries submitted before the deadline are guaranteed feedback, either in this thread or in another detailed feedback thread.

1st place: 3 alt art packs and 3 collection penta packs
2nd place: 2 alt art packs and 2 collection penta packs
3rd place: 1 alt art pack and 1 collection penta pack

Cyber Reconstructed Dragon
Character-Artificial Undead Dragon
10 morale

Flying, Unstoppable, Infect
Whenever a character is raised from a graveyard, it becomes artificial and undead in addition to its other types and gains +2/+2 permanently.
At the beginning of the turn after CARDNAME dies, select target character in a graveyard that costs less than CARDNAME and raise it to your support zone. It becomes artificial and undead in addition to its other types and gains +2/+2 permanently. This effect only works if CARDNAME is still in your graveyard at the start of the turn.

Initiate combat_protocol.rawr
Initiate reconstruction_protocol.rawr

It's like Infested Scavenger, but bigger. And permanent. And a dragon. That can resurrect Hehkeem (well, besides the whole 'purity' thing) when it dies (along with whatever it killed, assuming it killed something). Stats aren't fantastic, but at 8-cost I didn't want it to be strictly better than Cyber Infested Dragon. On the off chance that your opponent used Banish or managed to get in a hit with Soldier of Purity/Cheryl, the effect doesn't work in an homage to an old interaction with Exile and because it's just polite that way.

Split- When you play this card from your hand, two copies are deployed.

1p Zerg
2 cost
1 morale
Character- Zerg



Now all we need is a card that bounces a creature you control as a cost to get some effect.

The World Killer
3 CoV
Unique Ability
Cost 15

Destroy all permanents. Then do it again. Then both players discard their hands. Then CARDNAME does 25 damage to both players and both players lose 25 morale. Then remove all copies of CARDNAME from both players' hands, decks, and graveyards. Then remove both players' graveyards from the game. Counter all other abilities that would be played this turn. Players cannot use the trading post next turn.

Mountains crumbled to dust, forests wilted, oceans dried up, the sky burned. And as the spell finished, the caster herself knew despair--and finally death.

There will be no survivors. It might seem odd to destroy all permanents twice, but this does a few things. Firstly, I hope you weren't counting on shield. Secondly, you can't kidnap your own characters to escape. Thirdly, characters that transform on death or leave behind tokens on death are also gonezo. The idea is to wipe the board completely clean (except for those pesky Paladins). This is a devastating and awe-inspiring spell.
It might seem odd to prevent players from using the trading post the next turn, but that's designed to reinforce the destruction left in the spell's wake and to prevent an asymmetrical draw 3 from the casting player (do you really think the opponent upped their resources as much as the caster did?).
Exiling graves after hand discard prevents cards with Exile from being cast (also prevents reanimation shenanigans like The Last Sleeper and Recurring Nightmare). Damage and Morale hit can but won't necessarily win the game on the spot. Also, this is a super one-time-use spell. Once you blow up the planet, you can't do it again.
