    There seems to be a lack of activity in our create a card sub-forum, so lets try to encourage some participation.

    Rules

    1) Someone will be the head, and think up of a topic; "Leader"

    2) People will post their card idea/s that fit that criteria the "leader" chose.

    3) After either 5 or more people posted, or... a week has passed, whichever the leader likes, the leader will judge the entries declare a winner from the entries

    4) The selected person will then act as the new leader, and the cycle goes on

    5) If a leader hasn't made up his/her mind for a long time, anyone can judge the entries; but if you joined that contest, you can't vote yourself as the winner

    This rounds theme is

    criteria: Create a parasitic card: A card that degrades/drains another card to empower itself.

    Example:

    Draining Leech
    ******
    Dark/Insect
    2000 ATK / 2000 DEF

    Effect: Pay 500 LP to decrease the ATK and DEF of a face-up monster by 500 and increase this mosnter's ATK and DEF by 500.

    Note, it doesn't have to be ATK/DEF. it can be:

    -discard/draw
    -draw/put top card of deck to graveyard
    -put card from deck to graveyard/put card from graveyard to deck
    -lose LP/gain LP (Goblin Thief)
    -destroy 1 monster/special summon (Magical Dimension)
    -destroy 1 magic or trap/set 1 magic or trap (aka Dust Tornado)

    any other similar theme
  2. DarkLogicianOfCaos

    DarkLogicianOfCaos Eschew Obfuscation

    Voltage Regulator
    Continuous Trap

    Equip this card to an opponent's Synchro Monster. That monster cannot attack. As long as this card is equipped, reduce the equipped monster's ATK by 500 and increase your Life Points by 500 during your Standby Phase.

    Rules:
    **This card targets one of your opponent's Synchro Monsters.
    **If the Monster cannot reduce it's ATK by 500 you do not increase your LP.
    **The reduction and increase do not start a chain.

    supreme sponge of destruction 8 star aqua water effect
    3000 atk 2500 def

    this card can not be normal summoned, set or specail sumoned except by removing 5 aqua,water type monsters in your graveyard from play. when this card is summoned destroy every card on the opponents field and discard every card in the opponents hand then inflict damage to equal to opponents life points x 200 for each card discarded. You then add cards from the deck to field equal to the number of cards destroyed you also draw the same number of cards your opponent discarded and gain 200 life points for each card.you can not attack the turn this monster is summoned.

    Poisonous Kiseitai
    Effect Monster (Fiend / DARK / Level 4 / ATK 600 / DEF 800)
    When this face-down Defence Position card is attacked, negate the attack and equip this card to the attacking monster as an Equip Spell Card. A monster equipped with this card because of this effect loses 500 ATK and DEF, and its effect is negated. When this equipped card is sent to the Graveyard, you can remove from play 1 DARK monster from your Graveyard to Special Summon this monster in face-down Defence Position instead.



    "Poisonous Kiseitai"'s effect activates before it's flipped face-up, before "Mystical Swordsman LV2" activates. I don't know if that's possible, since I'm not intimately familiar with the Battle Step, but that's how it works.

    It doesn't exactly power itself up, unless you count the revival thing it has because of having been a leecher (which I do, otherwise this card would be ineligible for this competition).

    Any rules on how many cards a person can submit in a round?

    Looks like good stuff so far. In case anyone is wondering my judging will be done with a category system.

    Relevance /10 (how well your card applies to the theme)
    Creativity /10 (uniqueness and interestingness of your card)
    Wording /5 (how well your card using established wording conventions and capitals)
    Elegance /5 (ability to understand your card ex.Okazi is good Ladd is horrible elegance)
    Balance /5 (no I win you lose cards)
    Total /35

    Future judges can feel free to judge how they see fit.

    @Murano Generally the judge will say how many cards are to be submited. For this particular competition 1 is fine, but some others may require more.

    That's the first time I've been called Murano, I must say. Has an interesting ring to it.

    Sorry about that, but what do you expect on the internet.

    Judging time!

    Relevance 9/10 certainly hurts the host monster and I like the keseitai reference
    Creativity 7/10 very similar to original kiseitai
    Wording 5/5 you've done this before apparently
    Elegance 5/5 nothing is overly wordy
    Balance 4/5 very slow card, but recursion is going to make getting rid of it a hassle

    Total 30/35

    Relevance 2/10 chaos emperor dragon does not equal parasite
    Creativity 3/10 super powered chaos emperor dragon
    Wording 1/5 you missed a few capitals and misspelled special summon
    Elegance 0/5 Several unclear effects
    Balance 0/5 summoning condition does not make up for the effect

    Total 6/35 I am not trying to be harsh, but this card simply is too powerful

    DarkLogicianOfCaos

    Voltage Regulator
    Continuous Trap

    Equip this card to an opponent's Synchro Monster. That monster cannot attack. As long as this card is equipped, reduce the equipped monster's ATK by 500 and increase your Life Points by 500 during your Standby Phase.

    Relevance 9/10 parasitic without actually being a parasite
    Creativity 8/10 very different way of approaching the criteria, but pretty standard equip card
    Wording 5/5 perfect
    Elegance 5/5 very straight forward easy to understand
    Balance 4/5 only works on synchro makes it a potential dead draw, and it is unlikely that you will gain more than 1000 lp with it except in a stall heavy deck

    Total 31/35

    And the winners are

    1st DarkLogicianOfCaos
    2nd Maruno
    3rd Jinzo64

    The Next criteria awaits

    DarkLogicianOfCaos Eschew Obfuscation

    Okay.....

    We have cards that move from RFP to the Graveyard, or onto the Field, or into the hand. I want to see some decent, playable, not needed to be banned cards that move card(s) from RFP back to the deck.
    Make it creative.
    Make it Ancillary.

    somthing to move cards from out of play back to the deck.

    o.k lets see.
    macro returner 4 star dark warrior 1900 atk 0 def
    When this card is normal summoned return any 5 cards that have been removed from play back to your deck you then shuffle your deck.

    Collapse of the Different Dimension
    Counter Trap Card

    Negate the activation of a card that includes the effect of removing a card(s) from play and destroy it. Then shuffle all removed from play cards into their owner's Decks.

    Stops: DAD, Plauge Spreader, Macros Cosmos and some others I'm sure.

    Dimension Restoration

    It has been more than a week. If the judge does not judge by tommorow I will do it.

    Patience bobandjim...It hasn't quite been a week. That will be tomorrow. Besides, I was hoping someone would do something this weekend, but I guess my challege wasn't cleaver enough *tear*......Okay, here we go......

    The Theme:
    I want to see some decent, playable, not needed to be banned cards that move card(s) from RFP back to the deck.
    Make it creative.
    Make it Ancillary.

    And the scores are.....

    Jinzo64
    macro returner 4 star dark warrior 1900 atk 0 def
    When this card is normal summoned return any 5 cards that have been removed from play back to your deck you then shuffle your deck.

    Relevance 8/10 (how well your card applies to the theme) Does the trick, fairly ancillary.
    Creativity 8/10 (uniqueness and interestingness of your card) Great name!
    Wording 3/5 (how well your card using established wording conventions and capitals) Capitals and commas needed and they don’t usually say “shuffle your deck” anymore.
    Elegance 5/5 (ability to understand your card ex.Okazi is good Ladd is horrible elegance) Easy peasy!
    Balance 3/5 (no I win you lose cards) Good solid card, not too powerful, 1900 ATK balanced a bit by 0 DEF, but made a little too recyclable by Recurring Nightmare as a Dark, and 5 is a lot.
    Total 27/35

    Relevance 9/10 (how well your card applies to the theme) Well done, all the cards!!
    Creativity 9/10 (uniqueness and interestingness of your card) I like the punishment factor!!
    Wording 5/5 (how well your card using established wording conventions and capitals) Perfect
    Elegance 5/5 (ability to understand your card ex.Okazi is good Ladd is horrible elegance) Quite right.
    Balance 3/5 (no I win you lose cards) A little strong. Like a reverse Big Burn only skipping the Graveyard. It’s saving grace is that it is situational, the problem is that the situation is too common: Bottomless, the D.D. Warrior class, Allure, 3 of your secondary Polymorizations, it's not even limited it to “your opponent” activating a card. So you have a tremendous recursion rate by negating your own cards to get your (Exodia?) back into your deck for the draw.

    Maruno
    Dimension Restoration
    Continuous Spell Card
    When 1 or more cards are removed from play, you can select and add the same number of cards - 1 that are removed from play to the bottom of their owner's Deck.

    Relevance 9/10 (how well your card applies to the theme) Good job. Fairly ancillary
    Creativity 10/10 (uniqueness and interestingness of your card) Number of cards -1 how cleaver.
    Wording 3/5 (how well your card using established wording conventions and capitals) Nowadays, you would say: “Each time a player’s card(s) are removed from play, they can add 1 less than the number of cards that were removed from play to the bottom of their Deck.” [Rules: This effect is continuous] [The controller of the card gets to select from their removed from play zone.] [If your opponent’s card that you control is removed from play, you cannont select that card, as it is removed from play on it’s owner’s removed from play zone.] [If you do not have enough monster’s in your removed from play zone this effect does not activate.]
    Elegance 5/5 (ability to understand your card ex.Okazi is good Ladd is horrible elegance) Well understood, though.
    Balance 5/5 (no I win you lose cards) Good balance, it allows the for the opponent and prevents the 1:1 if Macro is on the field.
    Total 32/35


    Maruno wins by a hair.


    BTW bobandjim, how long should we wait (sorry, but I only have internet at work M-F 8-5)? I maybe should have done this Friday, but was getting UD Day ready.

    They wouldn't necessarily say that, though. I did suspect I'd lose marks for incomprehensibility, but I couldn't really think of any way to make it clearer without making it long-winded.

    My turn.

    Goal: The Extra Deck always seemed to me like it should have cards like "Gate Guardian" and "Dark Sage" in it. You know, the cards that do absolutely nothing other than waste space in the Main Deck. But no, it's just for Fusion and Synchro monsters. Your goal is make the Extra Deck live up to its name. How you manage that is entirely up to you.

    I think i understand were altering the ruling on the extra deck.

    New extra deck ruling applies from the 1/3/09
    The extra deck can contain up to 15 cards.
    These are Syncrone monsters, Fusion monsters and monsters that require tributes of 1 or more specified monsters. Example gate guardian, Valkyrion the magna warrior.

    Sorry for my rushing. These seems to be a little doom cloud following me around whispering in my ear, "It's going to die you know". I should have had more faith in you, you do tend to on here quite a bit. Funny thing is I'm in the same boat. I only get on at school every week.

    On to the challenge!

    Dead Weight
    Normal Trap

    Discard one card from your Hand. Both players take 500 damage times the number of cards in their repective Extra Decks.

    Tee hee hee, sometimes I sneak off to the public library and get on....

    Ummm, Maruno......I don't get it. We are going to attempt to "Create a Card", right? That interacts better with the "Extra Deck" concept and potentially makes use of previously useless cards, right?

    Like.......

    Emblem of Retrospect
    Normal Spell Card
    Randomly select 1 monster from your opponent's Extra Deck. This card gets the following effect based on the selected monster:
    *Synchro Monster - Special Summon it to your side of the Field, ignoring the Summoning conditions.
    *Fusion Summon Monster – Special Summon 1 monster from your Extra Deck with the same level as the selected Fusion Monster.
    *"Contact" Fusion Monster - Your opponent sends from their deck to the Graveyard all copies of the Fusion Material Monsters listed on that Fusion Monster.

    It's up to you to come up with an idea. I want to see what you guys think up. I hold creativity in high regard, so remember that.

    Logician, your posts are a nightmare to quote. You use colour and font tags around each paragraph, including blank lines. You don't need to, you know. Just put them around the whole post, and it works fine.

    Actually, that is because on the big things, or things that take creative processes, I have to hit them at several intervals (I am at work--in and out), so sometimes I start them here, get interupted, so I copy-paste to Word.doc and when I am finished, copy-paste back and that kinda messes with the format rather. Sorry.

    Heh, heh, heh....he said "colour" I love that accent.....I never "tyre" of it.... Just teasing.
