Card Design Challenge: the forum game
« on: July 24, 2014, 02:01:48 PM »
Once upon a time I used to be pretty active on the Magic Set Editor forums
 and had a lot of fun there. So I decided to bring this game to the IW forums.

So here are the 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. No double posting allowed, you may however edit your post till the deadline.

3) After an announced deadline The Judge decides a winner. The winner then becomes The Judge for the next round.

4) Any rewards are a plus, though entirely optional.


So to get this started I'll ask you to make me an Exiles' Aleta.

I'm not gonna set the deadline now, let's see how much replies this gets.

To encourage you to participate I'm gonna award a GOLD BORDERED FIGHT! to the winner.
(I don't care if nobody want's it I'm a poor player  :'()

Aleta, Immortal Maniac
1 Purity Exiles, 5 resources
Unique Character - Human
6/16

If Aleta is in the Graveyard for 4 consecutive turns, she returns to play.
Discard a random card: Swap the attack and health of Aleta until end of turn.

EDIT: Realized I didn't specify random, which would have made her more powerful than she was intended. I guess I could also add that the reason for her coming back after 4 turns is due to how easy it is for her to die with 6 health after the swap and she's more intended to be a combat character in this fashion anyways.

Just so you guys know, if you're ever vs WWK, just start putting out random numbers and mathematical symbols, he will surrender.

Aleta, Immortal Wanderer
1 purity Exiles, 5 resources
Unique Character - Human
6/16

If Aleta is in the graveyard for 6 consecutive turns, she returns to play.
Exhaust, Pay 5: Discard a random card from your opponent's hand into your graveyard. The discarded card gains Exile X, where X is the cost of the discarded card minus 1. If this card already has Exile, the lowest value is chosen.

Was trying to think of a useful ability and also wanted to deviate from the other aletas by making one you'd actually want to play on the battlefield instead of just sticking in command/support, saw that fight was a prize and well...


Aleta, Immortal Slaughterer
1 EX, 5/5
Unique Human
6/16
Consume 2

If aleta is in the graveyard for 6 consecutive turns she returns to play.
Pay: (uhhh, 1?), If aleta is in a combat zone target an enemy card in the opposing zone, if that card is still in the same zone when aleta or the target card enters combat aleta ignores card order and attacks or blocks that card.

Aleta, Immortal Shapeshifter
1 Purity Exiles, 5 Resources, 5 Morale cost
Unique Character - Human
6/16

If Aleta is in the graveyard for 6 consecutive turns, she returns to play.
Exhaust, Pay 1: Target Demon gets +2/+2 permanently. Discard a random card.

My idea for this Aleta was to create an Aleta based off of the lore of the Exiles. Since most of the Exiles are humans that are being shapeshifted into Demons, I decided to name her the Shapeshifter. I created her ability to buff one of those new demons and to follow the fun play style of Exiles I wanted her to be able to discard a random card in hand as well. This Aleta would eliminate the need to have a Ritual Master in command zone and would be a bigger buff to one unit, but doesn't affect the whole field like Ritual Master does.

Aleta, the Immortal Reclaimer
1 Purity Exiles
5 Cost
6 Morale
Unique Character - Human
6/16
Exile 2

If Aleta is in the graveyard for 4 consecutive turns, you may pay the Exile cost to return her to play.

Exhaust, Pay 3: Choose a card in your graveyard. It gains Exile 'X' where 'X' is half the cost of the card (rounded down). You may pay the Exile cost next turn to bring the card into play.

Explanation: this Aleta will allow you to finally, finally, FINALLY "reclaim" those high cost and/or non-exile-able cards that Ritual Master accidentally discarded. Also, can be used to bring back important characters that died in combat.

Aleta, Immortal Descender
1 purity Exiles, 5 resources, 5 Morale
Unique Character - Human
6/16
Rare

If Aleta, Immoratal Descender is in your graveyard for 6 consecutive turns, she returns into play.

Pay 1, Exhaust: All cards in your hand and graveyard gain Exile X until the end of next turn, while X is the cost of the card. If the card already has Exile, the lower number is selected.

Flavor Text: (1)One descender, thousands of descendees.
                  (2) (After a short while of time) This may be the start of cooperation of Exiles and other factions.

Card Idea: Currently, Exiles is a faction that is not easy to splash. The most important reason is that cards from other factions don't have Exile, so the player suffer from discarding cards from other factions. This Aleta, with purity 1, can significantly reduce the lost from discarding a wrong card, and therefore significantly increase the possibilty for splashing. Also, I believe this card will not be OP, but if further test prove her strong, she will be changed to "Pay 2, Exhaust" or so.

Lore Idea: Aleta, Immortal Sorceress was caught by Vasir. In order to punish her, Vasir turned her into Immortal Descender.

Edit: The part that cards in graveyard gain Exile does not mean the player can bring back cards played before. It is just used to ensure the discard mechanics to work, as Exile effect triggers in graveyard.

Not sure if I still fit the deadline, but oh well:

Aleta, Immortal Prisoner
1 Purity Exiles, 5 resources, 5 morale
Unique Character - Human
6/16

If Aleta is in the graveyard for 6 consecutive turns, she returns to play.
Pay 4, exhaust: Discard a random character card from your hand (fails if there is none). Target character on the battlefield becomes a Demon in addition to its other subtypes and gets +X/+Y, where X/Y are the discarded character's power/health divided by 2 (rounded down). Discarded character gains exile 1.

It seems a lot for a card, but I like the concept. Coyle does a similar stuff for himself, even though his effect is a bit crappier. The general idea is to use Verore Aleta's power, now that she' s imprisoned by Vasir, channelling her dark magic to help them demons :v
