    Its a shot because, well, damage, and if the thing lives, well you get to protect a minion.

     I like the continued effect each turn, seems well costed to me, fits the theme well.   7/10

     

    Quote from FHillz >>

     I like this effect ALOT.  Sleep is way cooler than freeze, though I might call this "Traquilizer Shot" hahah 8/10

     

    Quote from DeraVCC >>

     This is pretty creative.  Versatile, as it can be used to buff a minion with 6+ health, or destroy a minion with 5 or less.  Out of all your ideas i'd go with this one.  7/10

    Quote from Covetousj >>

     

     Again, i feel this is another card that puts a creative twist on a mechanic that kind of already exists.  Very clever and i think it fits the power word theme nicely. 8/10

    Quote from Wailor >>

     

     

    I like both of these cards.  They FEEL very Un'Goro, which is fine.  Extinction is my favorite of these two though because i really loved the adapt mechanic.  8/10
    Quote from Blightcaller>>

     I agree that shadowform is totally overlooked, and could be a cool archetype if it just got some card support.  Cool idea, but would definitely need a few more cards to supprt it.  6/10

    I'm a newbie to this process myself - are we able to post card ideas in this preview thread? I understand we'd also have to post in the submission thread, but I'd love to try and get in first with an idea before someone else has the same thought. :-P

     Yes. The idea of this thread is to post your ideas here, get feedback on your concept, and perhaps MOST importantly, provide others with your feedback about THEIR ideas.   Everyone helps each other out here.

    Competition Theme: Skill Share

    Congratulations once again to Wailor for winning WCDC 10.9. They add yet another contest idea to their already long line of competition victories: 

    Competition-Specific Restrictions:  

    You must create a spell from any class that is either:

      • A Power Word - a Priest minion buff (Power Word: Shield)
      • A Shadow Word - a Priest removal that destroys (Shadow Word: Horror)
      • A Shot - a Hunter removal (Quick Shot)
      • A Blessing - a Paladin minion buff (Blessing of Might)
      • Or a Mark - a Druid minion buff that gives stats (Mark of the Loa)
      • Bonus points this week for "sharing" of a skill. Basically, let's say a Warrior has a Power Word, or a Druid has a Shot.  However, if you do a Warrior Power Word, it would still need to be a minion buff.
      • Zanywoop will only vote for entries on the Submission Thread sharing skills across class lines

    General Competition Rules

    These are the rules that remain consistent from competition to competition.

    Posting Rules

    • 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 qualification 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.


    Posting Tutorial

    This is a posting tutorial for the website imgur.com. If you use another website, the process will be similar.

    1. It is recommended you use hearthcards.net to create your cards. Save the generated card to your device.
    2. Upload the image to imgur.com. You do not need an account.
    3. 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.
    4. On your hearthpwn post, find the "Insert/edit image" button: 
    5. Paste the direct link. This is recommended but not mandatory: You may choose to make the image smaller by changing the image dimensions.

     Competition Process

    Below is a list of all the deadlines for this contest:

     Preview Phase (Oct. 22, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] -  Oct. 23, 2019 [10:00 PM CST])
    The Discussion Topic is made available, previewing this week's competition theme.
     Entry and Early Voting Phase (Oct. 23, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] -  Oct. 27, 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 (Oct. 27, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] -  Oct. 28, 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 (Oct. 28, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] -  Oct. 29, 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 ) / ( ) = 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.)


    Rewards

    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!

    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 ideas for this week. Ask for better names, thank you.

     Love the name, given the theme.  BUT this card seem dangerous. Off the top of my head Leeroy Jenkins + Rapid Fire + Tank You! + Angry Chicken (magnetized) + Tank You! + Young Dragonhawk (magnetized) is 28 damage for 10 mana haha

     

    On second thought -- This makes Angry Chicken viable, so now I like it lol

     Man, this is creative.  I'm a huge fan of this card, and love how it fits with rogue's bounce mechanics.  8/10

     

    Quote from Nohva >>

     As you stated: simple yet effective.  Also, the art scares me.  Thanks for that...   6/10

    Quote from mrqwertymind >>

     Great card name!  I also love the effect.  Fits class identity perfectly, and like all the GOOD combo cards, It's great with the combo and sucks if you have to play it without activating it.  I like the cost at 4.  Draw 2 for 4 mana SUUUUCKS, but discover two cards in your deck for 4 mana seems pretty nice to me.  Nice art.  7/10

    Quote from Blightcaller >>

     I think this is the best out of your three submissions.  I'd definitely want to play this card against Quest druid's big boards!  7/10

    Quote from Perothvius >>

     I want to like this card.  I think the effect could be extremely useful, but if it was me,I'd either re-stat this competely (too weak) or I might make this a weapon instead of a minion, maybe losing durability every turn or something to that effect.  I could be wrong, idk.   Nevertheless, like the idea 5/10

    Really big fan of Herald of the Sun. I feel like its a really creative way to take advantage of BOTH Class's hero powers.  Got my vote!

     You didn't seem keen on this card, but I REALLY like it.   Both classes generate minions with their hero power, so I think this is genius, to be honest

     

    Quote from ffinderous >>

     

     This is also a nicely balanced, fun to play card.  I love tribal decks, so this is right up my alley.

    Quote from Blightcaller >>

     

     I love the idea of this, but stealing the minion AND giving them essentially a lost board spot, seems a bit harsh, given that the minion cant attack.  Maybe I'm wrong, but the idea is super cool.
