Weekly Card Design Competition: BIG Spells
Congratulations to SeraphicFire for winning last week's One ManaCost Class Minions competition with Town Guard!
The fifth card design competition is underway over on the Fan Creations forum, and our topic for this week is BIG Spells. Your spells must be class specific, cost 10 mana, and also must work with everything that already exists in-game, so no custom key words or new summonable creatures. You can submit your own card in the submission thread, or comment on other cards in this week's discussion thread. Don't forget you vote on your favourites by using the voting button!
You have until February 25th to enter, and the winner will get bragging rights and get to choose one of the future card creation topics. So what are you waiting for, go create a card!

thrall was the first dude i bought in heroes of the storm hehe
Kolento Champion ! (easy guess)
I really like the card design competitions (and the Gelbin Mekkatorque's workshop posts too), it is very entertaining to see the new card concepts!
It's like a new expansion every week - except from the fact that we will never be able to play with these cool card-ideas...
Glad to see Dog getting into more tournaments. I like watching his stream and value his descriptions of the plays he makes.
xixo Hype :)
Everytime i see this photo of Kolento I have to think about Glum ... Would i be so hard to give him some photo when he resembles human being?
Also is there still somone who likes Ek0p? That guy pretty much turned to Idra of HS community
This just reminds me how much I still have to learn xD
Rooting for Kolento!! :)
Are we ever going to see streamed tournaments where people actually have to qualify? For a lot of players I see in these tournaments, I find it very hard to believe that they were invited for any other reason than being at least a semi-popular streamer.
There's actually a couple of upcoming events which will have more open qualifiers.
It's understandable that invite only tournaments are going to be preferred for most events though because you're pretty much guaranteed to get ROI. If a qualifier produces a full roster of noname players, no one may want to watch the event.
I agree with you though, we definitely need more open events in the scene, and more importantly, open events with good prize pools so even the "pros" will attend.
The Lore Junkies video was interesting, as someone who never played any of the Warcraft titles. Looks like they've done Thrall and Jaina so far.
No MagicAmy in this tournament?
The other caster is Monk, Amaz announced it yesterday in the stream
Germany strikes back, huh?
