Imgur is currently not compatible with Hearthpwn. Postimage.org is the recommended alternative.
Competition Theme: WCDC Reborn
You must make a card that directly uses the Reborn mechanic. (Cards like Embalming Ritual or Psychopomp do not count.) EDIT: Cards that *gain* Reborn are allowed. (Ex. When this minion attacks, gain Reborn)
You must also choose one of the three following prompts:
Your submission must be a weapon.
Your submission must be a Neutral minion that costs 7 or more.
Your submission must be a class minion that did not receive a Reborn-related card. (You may not choose Rogue, Warrior, Priest, or Paladin.)
General Competition Rules
These are the rules that remain consistent from competition to competition.
You are allowed to submit only one entry.
After your submit, you may only make minor edits to your submissions (spelling, grammar, etc.). Please PM a fan creations moderator if you have questions regarding an edit you are not sure about.
You may not delete ANY posts you make in this Submission Topic, not even accidental ones. Please PM a fan creations moderator if you make a mistake in your submission.
This thread is for submissions only. Any discussion of the competition must take place in the discussion topic.
These are the rules about your Submission:
Your card cannot be Golden, have a hearthcards.net generated backdrop, or any major photo editing done to it.
You are allowed to post in this Submission Topic only once, only to submit your one entry.
Accompanying the image of your card, you may offer some minimal additional commentary to explain its design, balance, and/or other qualities. Flavor text is also welcome.
You may not plagiarize. An immediate disqualification is the punishment for this offense.
You must host your card on a image hosting website. postimage.org is highly recommended. imgur.com currently has issues on this site and images hosted there do not show up.
Fun and even humorous entries are perfectly allowed, but "troll" entries will be disqualified. If you're worried that your card may be misinterpreted as a troll card, contact a moderator before you submit. Emote-related cards will be considered a troll entry.
We reserve the right to classify cards as "troll" entries as we deem necessary, even if the reasoning is not explicitly stated in the rules.
A Note on Group Submissions: If you team up with other people to submit an entry, you must enclose that information in your submission and none of you may upvote that entry. That would be considered an unfair advantage and we will treat it as vote-manipulation. You are technically voting for yourself, and that is not allowed. Failing to tell us you're in a group is also against the rules, as we'll have no choice but to assume that you withheld the information to ghost-vote your group's submission.
Finally, know that manipulating votes in any way is strictly forbidden. Any violators will receive an official warning, and will be banned from this and all future HearthPwn Card Design Competitions.
This is a posting tutorial for the website postimage.org. If you use another website, the process will be similar.
It is recommended you use hearthcards.net to create your cards. Save the generated card to your device.
Upload the image to postimage.org. Use the "Do not resize my image" option. You can choose either "No expiration" or "Remove after 31 days".
After your image is uploaded, many links will be generated. Find the "Direct link". It will have a .jpg or .png at the end of the link. Copy the link.
On your hearthpwn post, find the "Insert/edit image" button:
Paste the direct link. This is recommended but not mandatory: You may choose to make the image smaller by changing the image dimensions.
Below is a list of all the deadlines for this contest:
Preview Phase (August 7, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] - August 8, 2019 [10:00 PM CST]) The Discussion Topic is made available, previewing this week's competition theme. Entry and Early Voting Phase (August 8, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] - August 12, 2019 [10:00 PM CST]) During this Phase, the Submission Topic will be unlocked. You may also, of course, feel free to give early up-votes to any submissions that you like! Voting Phase (August 12, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] - August 13, 2019 [10:00 PM CST]) During this Phase, the Submission Topic will be locked, so no more entries may be submitted. Instead, use this time to browse the submissions and up-vote your favorites! Final Phase (August 13, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] - August 14, 2019 [10:00 PM CST]) During this Phase, the Discussion Topic will also be locked, and a Finalists Thread will go up. Discussion will be allowed to continue in the Finalists Thread, and it will also include all the qualifying finalists and a poll to decide the winner of the competition!
How do we determine the qualifying finalists? We use the following formula:
( ab ) / ( c ) = x
Where, a = The total number of submissions on the same page as the submission. b = The total number of up-votes that the submission received. c = The total number of up-votes on the same page as the submission. x = The submission's final score.
The formula basically measures which cards stood out the most, with the necessary assumption that each page is about equal in overall submission quality. It will be the entries that receive the highest final scores that move on to the Final Phase.
The bottom line is that, although entries on the earlier pages of the Submission Topic are much more visible and thus receive many more up-votes than entries on later pages, you don't actually have to rush to get your entry in as soon as possible because the up-votes end up being weighted by what page your entry ends up on in order to determine its final score.
But wait, there's more! During each Weekly Card Design Competition, each Fan Creation Forum moderators will be given a Wild Card , which they can use to advance any one entry that they feel was initially overlooked or under-appreciated to the Final Phase, regardless of its final score. Wild Cards are our way of spicing things up a bit, but please don't ask to be given one or be upset if you aren't given one. These are just supposed to be fun. (Also, it should go without saying that, while we moderators are allowed to participate in the competitions, we are not allowed to benefit from Wild Cards.)
Bragging rights are always awesome, but as usual, we do offer a couple of HearthPwn site rewards to competition winners: Their card forever immortalized in our Winners' Gallery! They will be allowed to select the next card design competition theme. And a unique Avatar Border & " Card Design Champion " Title, as depicted below!

Here's my submission for the competition- Guardian of the Tomb!
"You've been spotted, and he's calling reinforcements!"
Guardian of the Tomb is a card that synergizes with many Shaman mechanics. The Battlecry effect allows progression with the Corrupt the Waters Quest, and the Overload effect synergizes with cards like Thunderhead and Vessina. The card also acts a defensive tool with the addition of Taunt, but doesn't overshadow Rain of Toads because of the Guardian summoned with the Battlecry not possessing Taunt.
"As a young prodigy, Ahmanet possessed magical abilities too great for her own good. She could toy with the spark of life, healing her people's wounds, making plants grow and conjuring rivers out of thin air, thus ensuring that her tribe would never have to suffer from the perils of the desert. But one day, her powers betrayed her. Trying to heal a very ill child, she accidentally turned him into an abomination. Being deemed a threat to her own tribe, she was burried alive in a golden casket so that her magic will never hurt anyone again. But as she was imprisoned, her powers were what kept her alive, taking their toll on her mind and body. Risen from the dead, Ahmanet has one purpose: REVENGE!"
I really love simple and still weird to use cards. This minion is a Mage spin on Candletaker- you pay 2 mana for 2 damage to a random minion now, and 4 more over the time. I personally compare the Battlecry and Deathrattle package to a delayed Powershot or a spin on Magic Dart Frog. Also, Mage needs some more Elemental tribe love. Never enough of those.
Stats are comparable with Magic Carpet. A great tool for token druid to keep up with other swarm decks while encouraging trading, collecting enemy souls and building an endless Wisp army. Swipe and Starfall are good combo options.
Card Edit: I changed the card art and the name from Spirit Healer. I didn't change the stats to 5/1 for 3 reasons: balance, don't want to break competition rules by changing my card significantly, and Am'gam Rager doesn't have to be lonely. I edited an unbound air elemental art so it should fit the Uldum theme better. I hope you guys like it.
My idea is a simple card with two effects which work much different together. That's practically 2 cards in one (like Druid choose one effects), and your choice is if you want a 2/2 + 2/1 Mechs, or +2/+2 and Reborn for a friendly mech.
Edit: Grammar mistake in explanation. (There is probably more, I'm not native speaker)
