Voting for Challenge #8 is OPEN!

by Charlie Plaine, Chairman

12th December 2011

With one individual challenge in the bag, returning player Conno "WeyounsLastClone" Hendrikson claims the top spot and rookie Mark "BaronMorrath" Morris stands behind him as runner up. But, it's still a wide open game, as anyone can slip up or find a brilliant entry and there are lots of points to be claimed. The game marches on, and it's time to judge the submissions for Challenge #8!

Challenge #8: Make Us Go
Choose a deck type that has not won or placed in the top four (4) of any major tournament in 2011. Design a card that would boost, but not overpower, that deck-type.

The challenge explanation on the MiS forums talks about how design is always looking and researching which affiliations and decks need help, and some tips and tricks for providing that help.

Here are the team's submissions. They are being presented anonymously and in a standard format:
