    Yeah, making it a druid card is definitely the right call here. I'd actually put this at 1 mana... maybe even as a 1/3 but I'd wait for more opinions before doing a 1 mana 1/3 with an upside. As we can see from Lucentbark druid, it is hard to restore health so that is where my justification comes from.

    Nice photoshop, btw.

    As a deathrattle, this makes this rather slow but necessary, I think, compared to void contract. It's also a strong option against bomb warrior.

    I like the second wording better. 7 mana 3/4 is more in-line with Lord Godfrey, who has a little bit more stats but will usually clear your own board too.

    Quote from Screwjank >>
     

     A solid value card. Could possibly see play in highlander mage. You could either do a spell, or simply a mage card. Both work fine, just depends how much variance you want.

    Quote from Perothvius >>

    Solid card. Great to get in the res pool. A bit low impact, though, the turn you play it. The current wording is fine, but to be more consistent with the rest of Hearthstone's cards, I'd use: "Whenever a minion is played, Silence it."

    I'd also advise getting better art if you have time, the current one is blurry. I couldn't find the exact image but there is a surprising amount of tol'vir art out there.

    Way too strong. Vilespine was a 5 mana 3/4 with a conditional assassinate. That card was already OP. This is a 7 mana that can destroy 2 minion very reliably, with a 5/5 body.

    This concept has been done many times before. On such a cheap minion, this will be akin to Raza the Chained pre-nerf powerlevel. It is better to have this on a 5 drop with good stats, but as an aura effect, like Houndmaster Shaw. A 5 mana 4/6 with "Your Combos are Battlecries" is much more manageable.

    This is the Discussion Topic. The Submission Topic is here.


    Competition Theme: Snake Eyes

    Congratulations once again to MrBurger for winning WCDC 10.1. He gave us mods a few choices and we settled on:

    Competition-Specific Restrictions:

    • You must make a card that has only 2 lines or less of text.
    • Bonus points if you use Sethrak or snake art.

    We're also adding this extra rule, as most tokens invalidate the spirit of this week's competition:

    • You entry cannot generate tokens with text. (So something like Silver Hand Recruit is ok.) This includes making a Hero Card that would change your Hero Power.

    That's it for the restrictions this week! Really short (literally, and design-wise) so the examples given are just some unique two-liner cards: Splitting AxeMayor NoggenfoggerVoid Contract

    While here are some "smart", "clean", yet effective designs:
    DinosizeOctosariWhirlwind Tempest

     Competition Process

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

    Preview Phase (August 24, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] -  August 25, 2019 [10:00 PM CST])
    The Discussion Topic is made available, previewing this week's competition theme.
    Entry and Early Voting Phase (August 25, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] -  August 29, 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 29, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] -  August 30, 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 30, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] -  August 31, 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.

    Looking for more information about the WCDC or Fan Creations in general? Why not check out this FAQ to see if your question is answered there? You can also PM one of us Fan Creation Mods!

     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. 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.
    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 (August 24, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] -  August 25, 2019 [10:00 PM CST])
    The Discussion Topic is made available, previewing this week's competition theme.
    Entry and Early Voting Phase (August 25, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] -  August 29, 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 29, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] -  August 30, 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 30, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] -  August 31, 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!

    Good Luck!

    Good stuff. I advise you to properly upload images rather than as an attachment. You can do so by uploading your cards to imgur.com, then copy and pasting the direct link (it will have a .png at the end). Then, find the "Insert/edit image" button and use the direct link there.

    These work for the competition requirements but I feel like they're too complex. You don't have to force yourself to fulfill so many quests. For example, Hare Heta. It has 5 keywords! That's far too much, in my opinion.

    Btw, any thougs about my card?

     

    This sort of wording (Lightning spell, Ice spell, Fire spell) is something I've seen countless times but still has not appeared on a collectible Hearthstone card. Therefore, I don't think it should be used.

    If you really want to use this concept, I'd do "Add a random spell that restores Health to your hand."

    It's a solid concept otherwise, though perhaps not very showy.

    Ok, so, basically all three of you used the same concept, more or less: A Zephyros like effect that is an easy way to progress a quest.

    While this concept does fulfill the competition requirements, just ask yourself does it fulfill the spirit of the contest restrictions? If you think it does, then you can submit it. Conversely, if you think you have a better idea, perhaps try that.

     PSA: The submission topic is always locked for the first day. Please check the "Competition Process" section if you have any other questions.

    Quote from Yami_Yugi >

     Hmmm... the wording is a little bit strange as return sort of means it doesn't die which looks odd on a deathrattle. I'd say "Deathrattle: At the end of your turn, add a copy of this card to your hand."
