Congratulations once again to Wailor for winning WCDC 10.3. His initial idea was to have a contest centered around grandmothers. Yep. We honestly couldn't think of a fitting mechanical challenge for that so we instead went for:
You must make a 2-mana minion.
It must have or give total stats of more than 5, non-inclusive. (River Crocolisk does not work, for example.)
The original examples of this are the only two grandmother cards in Hearthstone: Kindly Grandmother and Grandmummy. After much thought, we realized that both these cards are over-statted. Kindly Grandmother is a 1/1, then a 3/2, for a total of 7 stats. Grandmummy is a 1/2, then a 1/1, but also gives out +2/+2 in buffs for a total of 9 stats.
If you use grandmother or art with older women in it, bonus points!
Below is a list of all the deadlines for this contest:
Preview Phase (Sept. 9, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] - Sept. 10, 2019 [10:00 PM CST]) The Discussion Topic is made available, previewing this week's competition theme. Entry and Early Voting Phase (Sept. 10, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] - Sept. 14, 2019 [10:00 PM CST]) During this Phase, the Submission Topic will be unlocked.

Voting Phase (Sept. 14, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] - Sept. 15, 2019 [10:00 PM CST]) During this Phase, the Submission Topic will be locked, so no more entries may be submitted.

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!
Discussion Topic Rules
To make sure that everything runs smoothly, we need to reserve the Submission Topic for submissions only. Everything else goes here. What is everything else, you might ask?
Rules or Process. Do you have a question about the competition's process? Do you need clarification about one of the entry requirements? Are you not sure whether your entry adhered to the rules? Ask here!
Feedback or Ideas. Do you have some ideas you'd like to run by others before settling on one? Do you need help balancing or wording your entry? Do you need help finding art that will fit your card? Or do you just want feedback from the community on your entry? You're in the right place! Remember, although you are allowed to make minor tweaks to your entry after you've submitted it, you're only allowed one submission per week, so make sure that you've settled on your card for sure beforehand.
Discussion! Do you have thoughts on other people's entries? Are there directions you don't like that you're seeing too many people take? Or directions you'd like to see more people take? Would you like to help others and contribute to a greater community understanding of Hearthstone card design and balance? This is where you want to be!
All of that said, please refrain from the following:
Posting TONS of Ideas. Discussion topics become an absolute mess if everybody is posting a dozen different ideas. Please post not more than 3 distinct ideas at a time. Any more than that and we'll have to delete your post.
Advertising Your Entry. As a rule of thumb, please don't pop in here just to advertise your entry only to never be heard from again. This includes only asking short, generic questions like "Thoughts?" or "Do you think this is interesting?". Yes, getting feedback on your entry is one of the purposes of this topic, but we're not just here for other people to help you. We're here for you all to help each other.
Plagiarism. Many people post their ideas here before finalizing them in the submission topic. Directly plagiarizing those ideas to post in the submission topic yourself is absolutely not acceptable.

Just came up with my very first idea. Basically just a River Crocolisk that gives you a 0/3 body. Most of the time it will be just an okay 2 drop, but an additional body can work with buff such as Dire Wolf Alpha. Can also helps deck that has synergy with the Coin without feeling lost in tempo.
Obs.: She adds ANY elemental (NON-CLASS limited, like Snowfury Giant) giant to your hand, independently if got to HoF (Molten Giant, for instance). Also, notice they're all STONE RELATED. Possible giants BELOW (I've thought up a few more):
Thoughts ? The name of the card isn't original... Do you have some ideas ? Thanks :) And is it balanced ? Or can the token be 2/1 or 1/2 ?
This card remind me a lot of Haunted Creeper, but too weak since it's unplayable once you complet the quest, so you could remove the "if you control a quest" part. I don't really like the idea of Holy Undead being stronger than Holy Armored, and I think it's have enough power on his own (basically 4 1/1 for 2 mana). Really like the idea though, without the quest condition it surely will be better !
