Cost: 4

Rules Text:
While "Avarrach Has Risen" or "The Virus of Avarrach" is in your graveyard, The Weeping Statue gains Infect and deals 1 damage to every Character in play at the start of each turn. Damage inflicted by this effect is increased by 1 at the end of each turn.
Exhaust, Pay 5: Discard any number of cards from your hand. Gain 5 morale for each card discarded this way.
Exhaust, Pay 6: Discard a card from your deck. Gain Health equal to the discarded card's cost.
Flavor Text:
After the scientists of Genesis Industries had thought the plague from Avarrach had been cured, one of their exploration teams had stumbled across a curious statue from the ruins of a castle. Perpetually leaking some type of cloudy liquid from its eyes, the statue was taken in for further research.

I may have quit IW but I miss playing Sleepers and Verore together.
I still like Virus-based decks. :(

A peculiar man on his striking mount of dazzling emerald scales, his descent on the battlefield only served to exponentially add to the casualties. His allegiance fickle, there was no telling what he could do when the techno-organic undead scourge was finally conquered. The angels, witches and mercenaries all regard the mysterious conscriptee with wary and dread-filled eyes.

Flavor Text:
A knight in gleaming black armor on his glorious winged mount of dazzling diamond scales, his inclusion to the battlefield only served to further the indiscriminate purge of weak-willed fools across the Rifts.
Flavor Text #2:
A high-ranking lieutenant in the unprecedented alliance between Rita and Sol, their maddening lust for power and conquest exacting countless lives from the other factions. Aberion, the champion of the Flame Dawn, would have to return with this dreaded knight's head so he could prove himself as the mightiest warrior among all those whoever dared to walk on the battlefield.

Name: Drake
Faction/Purity: 1 Cult of Verore, 1 Overseers of Solace

Morale: 6
Attack/Health: 8/8

Flavor Text:
"One of the many subjects of the Godfather of Drakes..."

EDIT: Removed other two effects because I think it made the card an easy swiss army knife on the unconventional CoV/OoS combination deck. Increased Morale for Drakes. Added restriction for transform effect. Added new second activateable affect.

He still transforms deployed characters into Dragons. Handy with Rita, Cornicen and Irial among other things. Stops things like Klore, Avatars, Last Sleepers as well. Up to twice per turn to stop abuse with sudden dragon armies or total shutdowns.
Second effect mirrors Superior Symbiote but targets abilities instead and then removes them from play to prevent cycling them repeatedly. So you can Mass Death for 8 resources but you don't even give a warning to your enemy besides having the Godfather anywhere in play.
Also helps with removing your own Unique abilities so you can play another one from your hand. Calamity or Die Another Day maybe...

Hmmm... I suppose I was way too late post-judging.
But I was wondering what the judge was talking about my entry being too OP with Omnitron decks.
I find it to be a more annoying troublemaker in other hybrid decks as a back-up wincon or residual damage.
Point taken in consideration with Flame Dawn and Descendants of Dragons though.

You can't sac Rita to herself. You can, however, use Blood Arrow to kill her after she eats the Last Sleeper.
Point taken though. Should've added a clause that says "Doppelganger dies at the end of the next turn" after it raises itself from the Graveyard to prevent the abuse of 20/21 bodies.

Rarity: Rare
Cost: 4
Morale: 0
Attack/Health: 0/1

Flavor Text 2: "Would you kindly stare into the reflection of your own death?"

EDIT: Removed permanent +20 bonuses on each successful rezz. Changed "target" to "select" for Untouchable bypass... for copying Marina'd Sols or whatever.

Name: Agent Amy, the Treacherous
Faction/Purity: 1 Cult of Verore, 1 Overseers of Solace
Type: Unique Character
Rarity: Legendary
Cost: 8
Morale: 15
Attack/Health: 1/1
Rules Text:
While Amy is in play, all Characters with Charge, Vigilance or Haste are unable to enter combat.
Each time a Cult of Verore or Overseers of Solace card is sent to the graveyard, Amy gains an extra life.
Flavor Text: "Agent Coyle, it has always been a pleasure to double-cross you every time!"

Comment: So your Ascended Gao Han will pretty much never fight with anything as would your Hasted Champions. Likewise, your opponent won't be surprising you with Impervious or a flying Emberstarter or a handful of Agent Coyles. And she can do it all from the comfort of the Command Zone.
Amy dies to all indirect damage but, if you're spamming Lightning Blasts and chump-blocking with Followers (via Cornicen, Heaven's Assistance and Irial) or Rita's Guards, she might not have to.

Well, it doesn't have to be canon to be serious.
I mean, they might as well be tales of the various horrors Aleta the Tinkerer faces while trying to rescue the Sufferer. Like, she could've had to traverse the barren Old World and fight with Hehkeem and Exhumed Mammoth, dying and only to be Reborn again to steal the Sufferer away.
Or we can get nitty-gritty details of Candit and Rita's catfight. Like, Death Rays and Reflective Shields everywhere a la Harry Potter duel.

But I do want IW on Crack.
I mean, Nysrugh and Thanksgiving preparations in Torment sounds like a total kick to me.
Or what about a parody of Shrek with IW characters? Someone has to be Prince Charming but I can't figure out who...
Or the Rift's Next Idol? Aberion can be the top model though... er... maybe...

Is this going to generally be a serious-y establishment of IW lore?

Will we have occasional IW characters on crack?

Like, what does Rita and Candit do in their spare time if they're not warring with each other? Do they argue on gimp suits for their thralls or are they trying to outdo each other with their wardrobe/s?
Or what do the Exiles do during the Rebellion when the Angels are busy fighting with each other? Does Nysurgh cook? Does Tygrugh do any Shakespearean plays? Is Grimmish the Jester of Torment?
Who would win a game checkers between Gao Han and Kung Ji? Does Aberion sing to Mulan's "I'll Make A Man Out of You" while recruiting for Purifiers?

And what about Factionless cards?
Will we ever touch upon the mysterious dimension Evellee and her DDs come from?

I kinda don't get the instructions but I patterned this one slightly after Eaten by Zombies.

Name: Inhuman Fate
Faction/Purity: 2 Sleepers of Avarrach or 2 Exiles
Type: Unique Ability
Rarity: Rare
Cost: 3
Rules Text:
Neither player can inflict any form of damage to non-Human Characters, fortress or morale until the end of this turn.
After 3 turns, choose one of the following preemptive effects to activate:
-Send all cards in play to the graveyard
-Send both players' hands to the graveyard
-Remove all cards in both graveyards from play
-Both players have their fortress health and unit morale divided equally between them
Flavor Text: "Those who fear death have not known any horror worse than it."
Alternative Flavor Text: "Did he just ragequit?"

Basically, a Unique Ability which is a bit of a toned-down version for Die Another Day in that you can still lose because of Ju Lin or Grimmish or something alternate victory condition.
A one-off stall effect with an added bonus of character preservation from damage.
While you still have to wait for 3 turns before you can use its more potent effects, your access to Adaptive Ritualist can net you up to three more additional uses of the card.
Sort of favoring mill strategies, this card also encourages you to use Tygrugh or Sleepers cards as you and your opponent are forced to dump cards in the graveyard.
Also, countering control and mill are its graveyard removal and fortress/morale equalizer.

The odd purity is to stop it from being easily splashable and largely confined to the least friendly of the factions.
Worth of note is that you can stall with Fear or Wholesale Slaughter while also having access to Infested Abominations, Last Sleepers, Ixxi among other things to be dumping in the graveyard.
EDIT: Changed effects to resolve preemptively and increased cost slightly.
