Each week I'll post the collector’s information for one of the cards in the set’s card-list.
Contestants are free to create whatever card they see fit for that slot in the card-list, keeping in mind the surrounding cards. As the contest progresses, the card-list will become more and more defined, guiding the contestants’ choices.
The theme of our set is Decipher! You're free to interpret this how you want, but in my mind, I found myself going down one of two rabbitholes, those being...
- the secretive, possibly •Intelligence based path, or
- the keyword path (keyword's being the key to deciphering ciphers)
Each week a poll will go up for the previous week's entries. Simply vote for one you like the most. In the event of a tie, I'll let a random result generator make the decision.
Last week's winner... Congratulations to WeyounsLastClone and his Business Priorities for becoming the twenty first card to enter the set.

This week’s contest is...
Card #6 is the dilemma, Regional Dispute, and Card #8 is equipment, Dataport, so this plugs the gap. That leaves you with:
- a dilemma (after Regional Dispute)
- or, an equipment (before Dataport)
Note: This'll be a 36 card set.
