Hello all. I am a lover of angels and all things that are filled with Holy light (in fantasy lit, games, anime, etc.). However, one of the most interesting tropes is to see such things be corrupted, either by willful choice (the priest forms a pact with a demon), without recognition (the knight is so zealous that he becomes that which he sought to defeat), or by force (the vampire turns someone who can't help but now become filled with bloodlust). MTG has this in spades in New Phryexia (hello Glissa Sunseeker), Innistrad (Emrakul would like a word with everyone), and elsewhere. So... for something a bit different, this contest will focus on that idea.
For this contest, I want you to make 2 creature cards that show the before and after of a character's corruption. The first card should show the character in their normal un-corrupted state, while the second should show them in their corrupted glory. As a note, however, if you want to do the opposite (the corrupted is the original state, for example, and it becomes pure), I will accept that at well.
- 2 cards per person. You may also make up to 3 supporting cards to help flesh out the character's story.
- Realism: Cards should be balanced and have proper formatting.
- Creativity: Try to avoid a card that just shows a bald eagle as a 2/2 bird with flying and no skills.
- Story: The chief point of this is to tell the story of the corruption. So 2 random cards with no context won't mean much. Cards should, where possible, have flavor text, and brief explanation should be provided with the post if needed.
- Art: Please do NOT use any actual MTG art on your cards. I will heavily penalize cards that use MTG art.
- Newness: Please submit new cards and ideas. If you want to submit older cards, you may do so, but this will be used as a tiebreaker (where new creations rank higher against similar older cards).
For the winners:
- 1st: a follow, and 5 likes of your choice.
- 2nd: 4 likes of your choice.
- 3rd: 3 likes of your choice.
- Honorable Mentions: 2 likes of my choice.
Lastly, this contest ends at 12:00 PM EST on June 17, 2019. I will post the winners within a week of that day at the latest.
Thank you, and best of luck to you all.
