You may not like it*, but this is the theme for this week. Thanks to BMcGill for the theme for this week! Here we go...
You must create a minion who deals damage based on it's health, rather than it's attack. This is what perfection looks like.
Furthermore, you are allowed to have a minion (not a spell, weapon, etc.) give another minion this ability.
Your card may phrase this however you feel best exemplifies this, but the phrasing we suggest is "This minion's Health is used to deal damage." We are leaving it open this time, so as long as it deals damage based on Health, however you want to do that, we're supporting it.
Examples: Lightspawn (We know it's not clearest example, but it's there).
BONUS POINTS: Shirtless Dudes. We would like to see Shirtless Dudes. For the record, we're now adding a half-point to your score when calculating for the final poll, and that's how we intend to handle these extra points for now. If you need a shirtless dude the mods have folders full of them.
* C'mon, who doesn't like Ricardo?
Below is a list of all the deadlines for this contest:
Preview Phase (Nov. 26, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] - Nov. 27, 2019 [10:00 PM CST]) The Discussion Topic is made available, previewing this week's competition theme. Entry and Early Voting Phase (Nov. 27, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] - Dec. 1, 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 (Dec. 1, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] - Dec. 2, 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 (Dec. 2, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] - Dec. 3, 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!
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.

My only idea so far. Maybe it's too complex and I'm not even sure if it fits the competition. I'll try to come up with something else later.
I like this idea but I think it would be better if the choose one option of nothing was changed to "gain +1 attack". That way you either give the minion a way to easily die and do the lesser damage or have to have an activator for the higher damage. It still keeps the tactical design choice of being able to choose the 2 or 4 damage affecting your own minions.
