[CDC] For Free!
« on: September 12, 2017, 02:45:38 PM »
Greetings, fellow card design contest veterans (and newcomers, should any show up).

This contests challenge:

Design a card that you can play for free!

The card can have 0 cost from the start or can have a condition which must be fulfilled to be free. Cards with a cost reduction system like oblivion, although eventually free, do NOT count for this challenge. It's either full price or for free, nothing in between.

Existing examples from the game would be Echo of the Battlefield or the graveyard mechanic of Last Sleeper or the Aletas. (I think there is no straight forward 0 cost card yet, but those count too).

--- 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.

PRIZES
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
All participants who submit an entry will receive a collection penta pack

However, now that Rita had seen what her rival was up to, can she prove herself to be as capable as the Head Researcher?"

Lyssa, the Flicker-Knight
1p GI + 1p FD
3 cost
7 morale
Unique Character- Artificial Human

Charge

If Lyssa enters your hand in any way during the turn resolution phase, she is automatically deployed to the assault zone.

At the end of the turn, shuffle Lyssa into your deck. Lyssa retains all permanent buffs even if she leaves the battlefield.

8/6
---

Includes drawing her, return to hand (from anywhere) or fetch cards. Does not apply if you drew her with trading post or during the beginning of each turn. Also works with parallel rift because that happens at end of resolution not planning

Distribution Attacker
2p FD - uncommon
0 Cost
4 Morale
Character - Human
0/1
Charge

When you deploy Distribution Attacker, you can target a deployed character you control.
Move half the power of the target character(rounded down) over to Distribution Attacker.


Distribution Attacker is good for when too much attack power is focused on one character. For example it does not help you to stack a lot of power on to Flame Dawn Centurion if he is just going to fight 6/6 or 8/8 characters. Playing Distribution Attacker will also give Flame Dawn Centurion +2/0 before taking half his power. Rapier Fanatic is another example of a good combo. Distribution Attacker is good for when you just want your attack to be more evenly distributed.

Just gotta say this sounds like a pretty awesome concept. Also adds more bodies for Bromich and Sacculas.

3 DoD
0-cost
Ability
Uncommon

Target character gets +0/+2 and your fortress is healed for 2 health and morale. Return CARDNAME to your hand at the end of the turn.

Take a moment to center yourself, even in the fires of battle.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you incremental advantage. 3 DoD to avoid Aether Acolyte shenanigans. Note that there has to be a character to target.
