Land Commanders - Contest (Closed for judging!)



  • Closed for judging!

  • How’s judging going on this?
  • @Aggroman15 - Hey! Thanks for asking!

    I've added all 66 entries to my judging files, and the judging has gone smoothly... when I had time to do so. These past 10 days or so, a few short projects had been thrown onto my lap, so I've had to work on those nonstop.

    Worry not, I'll resume judging very soon, as I'm aware that two entire weeks have already passed when I closed this! The projects are almost over, and I'll have enough free time to judge this.

    I hope you understand, and I thank you for your patience!
  • That’s absolutely fine, you do what you need to do. Life comes first. Thanks for the response!
  • Judging Results!

    First of all, thank you everyone who joined, and for your patience! I've hosted exactly 10 non-Tournament contests here in Cardsmith, including this one, and I can easily say that this has had the fiercest competition of them all! Judging took roughly five weeks thanks to the abundance of your wonderful entries and the busy schedule of this year's end.

    It's been exciting, while also a bit heartbreaking, to only choose three winners for both Land and Creature categories. There are 8 Honorable Mentions for each category, more than I have ever mentioned in any earlier contest. Without further ado, let's start with...

    Since this contest got so popular and people seemed to have a fun time, I would happily host another one around this mechanic! That new contest will have slightly different rules, and I'll most likely start it after New Year's Day. We'll see!

    One final time: Congratulations to our winners and thank you everyone for creating your cards and joining the competition! I hope to see you on the next one!

    Happy holidays!
