Seasons greetings, fellow cardsmithers, and welcome to my newest contest!
I got the idea for this contest from another cardsmith's card created by @JerroTheDerro
Now, the image is a bit creepy (to me), but I thought "Why not make a contest based around snow cards?" So, I did some talking with a few other cardsmiths, and this contest is the result of the talks I had!
For a special treat, one of the cardsmiths I talked to has teamed up with me to bring this contest to you talented cardsmiths, please welcome fellow cardsmith @murkletins
as a guest judge for this contest!
So what exactly is a snow card? Here is some examples of some real magic the gathering cards:The breakdown:
I would like to see you guys create cards that are Snow cards. The examples show permanents, but there isn't any cards out there that support snow permanents that are nonpermanent cards, are there? So here is your shot. Make some cards that are either snow permanents, or make cards that support snow permanents. Be creative!Examples of nonpermanent snow cards, and snow permanent cards I made for you guys:Rules!
1.) Up to 5 entries only please.
2.) Entries can be old or new.
3.) Limit of 1 old card. Cards made before November 1st 2019 are considered old as of this contest's opening. (So if you submit 1 old card, you still have 4 more cards you could create for this contest.)
4.) Editing is allowed on all entries up until the final day of accepting entries.
5.) No magic the gathering remakes or already used magic the gathering art. Doing so your entry won't count. We are looking for as close to original work as possible.
6.) Credit the artist of the art you chose. This will count towards the judging of the contest (yes, it will hurt even if you provide it later if you don't edit the card to include the artists name. That credit is extremely important.)
7.) Rules subject to change. If there are any edits to the rules, they will be stated along with the entries.
8.) No magic set editor created cards allowed please.
9.) Entries are due by Monday, December 9th, 2019 11:59pm est, USA.Prizes!
