So, it's been brought to my attention that the monthly Deck Challenges I've been doing make it hard to bring new members into the AGM. Tinkerer (the other judge of this contest) suggested a kind of "trial run" challenge, where prospective members could show off their card design chops for review by the group.

Ergo, this contest.

Like a regular AGM archetype, this will revolve around an archetype in the Archetype Game thread, selected for its ability to check for the strengths and weaknesses of someone's card design.

There is a 100-Point entry fee per person, as well as a base pot of 5000 Points, just in case the winner isn't particularly interested in becoming a member of a semi-Legacy (Links aren't a thing in the AGM, but Cyberse-Type is, and we use a mix of old and new OCG) format group.

This contest will come in four distinct card-making "phases", which will occur over the course of a week each. During each "phase", a contestant will make a piece of the archetype which indicated at the bottom of the post after the contest begins. Each phase will be graded separately at the end of its respective week, and as parts of a whole at the end of the contest.

Any questions or concerns can be addressed to myself and/or Tinkerer, either via PM or in the Archetype Generator Meta thread proper.

Current Pot


Rubric


Current Phase: 4
Prompt for this phase: Create a set of bosses (1-2) for the Arachne Pirate archetype! Hint: typically, a boss is best defined by their protection (Ulti-Falcon), ability to stop your opponent's plays (CDI), or sheer raw force and ferocity (King of the Skull Servants).

Arachne Pirate
Spider pirates; that's all you need to know. Oh wait, the original laddie be wantin' more words.

Archetype of WATER Insects that, as their name implies, focus on piracy and looting the opponent's resources with extreme ease. They're not that powerful (think of Majespecter stats), but what they do, they are extremely proficient at it. Unless the opponent can handle multiple direct attacks and losing their resources, it's going to be a long day for the opponent as they struggle with resource deficits.

For this phase, you're not making any bosses or ED presence, so just focus on creating a solid Main Deck monster lineup.
Yeah, I favor Spellcaster and Dragon monsters. Yeah, this comes from seeing so many awesome ones in the early "Yu-Gi-Oh!" anime. Does that invite a problem?

Welcome all!  A prompt has been decided on and the contest should open up with the information and requirements soon.

 

A grammar tip in case you want to utilize this in the archetype: the AGM pseudo-Legacy format also has a zone for banished cards.  If you want to reference it, it is simply called the "Banished Zone".


Hello, fine peoples!

Phase 1 begins!

You have until Tuesday, July 4th to create and submit your submission!

Recommendations regarding possible things that you can use as a guidebook for this contest:
AGM WATER and Insect support

Yeah, I favor Spellcaster and Dragon monsters. Yeah, this comes from seeing so many awesome ones in the early "Yu-Gi-Oh!" anime. Does that invite a problem?

Directly post it here. As for explaining, that's entirely optional. That said, it may help us make the same logical leaps you did.
