[CDC] Lords of the Sky
« on: November 11, 2017, 04:22:57 PM »
Create a character card that is a Dragon and requires at least 2 different factions in its purity cost.

Resource cost can be pretty much anything, but seeing as its a Dragon I expect the card to be pretty dramatic, but try to keep it balanced.

Flying is not a requirement.

The card itself has to be a dragon, it cannot be a card that turns into a dragon or makes a dragon (like agent coyle or Descension).

It can be a Dragon that turns into something else though if thats what you want.

--- 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

Corrupted Wyvern

Character - Demon Dragon
Epic
Cost 6
Morale 10
Stats: 7/7

Consume 4, Disturbing Presence 2
If Corrupted Wyvern's health is 13 or more it has Flying, at 20 or more it has Unstoppable.
Exhaust, Sacrifice a Character: Corrupted Wyvern gains +4/+4 and heals 4 damage.
At the end of each turn if Corrupted Wyvern is not exhausted and has not entered combat this turn it enters combat with a random Character you control.

"Originally they were a smaller, inferior species of dragon, but thanks to demonic corruption they've become strong, fearsome, bloodthirsty monsters."




Basically its a winged reptile that starts relatively small but can get big and strong if you keep it fed, you can't stack the manual sacrifice consume with the regular combat consume but it can still get quite strong if you handle it well.

Kinda designed after hunted dragon in that its a cheaper dragon but with a drawback and demon of gluttony/nysrugh in that you have to feed it to really make use of it, though unlike them you can just let it feed on the enemy.

If you're going to use it in command you'll need characters to sacrifice to not have it go out of control and hurt itself or key units, also you can exhaust it through other effects to avoid having to sacrifice characters and keep in mind it counts as a warpath card for untapped wilderness & corrupted forest.

Although you don't need to sac characters if its in combat the opponent could always fear/stumble it and then you end up with a problem and obviously if its temp removed from the game the stats will be reset and that could be a pretty big blow.

Cyber Reconstructed Dragon
GI/SoA
Epic
Character-Artificial Undead Dragon
8-Cost
10 morale
15/15

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.

Name: Godfather of Drakes
Faction/Purity: 1 Cult of Verore, 1 Overseers of Solace
Type: Unique Character - Angel, Dragon - Champion
Rarity: Legendary
Cost: 7
Morale: 15
Attack/Health: 15/15
Rules Text:
Pay 1: Transform a target deployed Character into an 8/8 Dragon with Flying. It is Exhausted for the next turn. This ability can be activated up to twice per turn.
Pay 2: You may activate the effects of an Ability card from your Graveyard by paying its cost. It is then removed from play at the end of the turn.
Flavor Text:
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
Type: Character - Dragon
Rarity: n/a
Cost: 4
Morale: 6
Attack/Health: 8/8
Rules Text:
Flying
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.

Note:
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...

Yorn, Herald of Chaos and Decay
Purity: 1Exiles/1SoA
Cost: 8
Morale: 14
Type: Unique Character - Undead Demon Dragon
Stats: 12/12
Rarity: Legendary

Flying, Consume 2, Infect

As an additional cost when you deploy Yorn, you must discard at least 2 cards (you may discard more though).
For every card discarded this way, Yorn gains +3/+3 permanently (this persists through death and removal from play).

When Yorn is in the graveyard, you may discard your entire hand to return Yorn from the graveyard to your hand. You cannot use this if your hand is empty.

Sightings of the two-headed dragon Yorn are regarded as omens of horrible disaster in Reish.

A demonic dragon changed by the infection or an infected dragon corrupted further by the demons? Nobody but Yorn himself knows the answer.

CARDNAME may not be placed in the command zone.
At any time, if you have a card from every faction in your graveyard, move CARDNAME from the library to your hand.
Sacrifice a deployed Enyah you control: Shuffle your graveyard into your library. 
If CARDNAME would be placed into a graveyard from anywhere remove it from the game instead.

Yes. You must discard a minimum of 2 cards or you can't play him. You may discard more than that though if you want to.

EDIT: Slightly changed the wording on Yorn to reflect that the discarding is an additional cost on deployment.
