HELLO EVERYONE, and welcome to the return of methods to get into the AGM that don't require in-depth knowledge of our existing archetypes! This will also be the first time we're running one of these contests since Link format became a defined thing, so here's our current policy as per "Series 9.5" card text, using Legacy rules (that is, imagine Master Rule 4 never happened).

Changes in a nutshell


ANYWAY, the way this works is simple. On Saturday, December 2nd (~18:00 PST), the contest will begin in earnest, and the archetype that you will be designing for will be revealed. Then, over the course of the following 4 weeks, you will design an entire archetype, piece by piece, with the final week (which used to be reserved exclusively for boss design) being an opportunity to make small alterations to individual cards, to save scores from previous weeks (a suggestion by Eshai during AGM Archetype Design Contest #2).

Entry fee is 500 Points, feel free to ask questions below.

Prompt:

Parnimal
A Fusion archetype whose Main deck monsters are Beast-Warrior, Spellcaster and Warrior Gemini monsters that turn into animal-ish Types (Beast, Insect, Dinosaur, Reptile, Dragon, Winged Beast, etc.) when their effects are gained ("Gemini Summoned"), taking inspiration from "Skelesaurus", or while they are in the grave.

Meanwhile, the Fusion monsters are Dragons that are also treated as an animal-ish Type by a continuous effect (like LADD's "treated as DARK" effect) while on the field or grave. They take advantage of Dragon's Mirror, Raptinus being a Fusion and a Dragon, as well as Beast-Eyes Pendulum Dragon.
In addition, unlike standard Geminis, these are also treated as Normals in the hand, deck and while banished, and thus benefiting from Normal support like Rabbit, Unexpected Dai, etc. In other words, if their Gemini effects are not applying, they are Normals, while still being Geminis of course. This means a Parnimal Main Deck monster can be searched by, let's say, Woodland Archer and Summoned by Unexpected Dai.
Moreover, they get Spell/Trap support that make them effective at gaining and using their effects, despite the requirement of the extra Normal Summon.

I'm Eshai (if you don't already know me). I'm the second judge in the description. 

 

More or less what you can do to impress me is to abide by the technicalities of the prompt, but be weird about it. There's a famous Shigeru Miyamoto (The guy that made The Legend of Zelda) quote that basically sums up everything that I want to see:

 

"A good idea is something that does not solve just a single problem, but rather can solve multiple problems at once."

 

Whatever the prompt is, I want you to put all of the pieces together in a way that convinces me everything you put into the archetype was necessary but without putting too much stuff on each card. 4 or more effects and you make me a bit skeptical. Less is more, and if you do something really creative and awesome, that'll earn you bonus points from me.


Duelist Port Royal (link here): Will be making cards, archetypes, and hosting tournaments on the Duel-Portal. If you have good ideas, like creating card art, or you would just like to test your own cards in real gameplay on the Duel-Portal, feel free to PM me or contact us on the club page.

Really like the rubric. A little hesitant from the OCG requirements, despite your clear effort in making it clear, as I'd only recently properly gotten into Series 10, and don't want to get mixed up now. Regardless, whether I lose marks there or not, I'll be able to determine if the marks were lost due to my normal mistakes rather than not following your formula, and I'll be able to know how I did.

 

But yeah, entering.

I'm tempted. I'm truly tempted to give this a go. Why the fuck not, I'm in, I suppose.

Here's confirmation of the first week! You'll be designing for the "Parnimal" archetype, whose prompt was created by Darj!

In this first week, you shall be designing Main Deck monsters- a minimum of 5, and a suggested maximum of 10 (although you won't be penalized for going over, it might make grading interactions a bit harder).

Signups have been closed, and submissions for this phase close 8:30 PST on Thursday, December 7.

I'm working on my entries right now, and just to make sure before I deliver, because some of these are more implied than said but:
-We are to use Graveyard instead of GY.

-We are adding the [----]-Type part to Types.

-At the moment you want nothing but Main Deck monsters, and S/T and Fusions, etc. are for further rounds.
-The entries are to be posted in the thread rather than PMd,

-Entries can be written or come along with the card.

I wish I had the time to draw the images and present them in card forms, but holidays and stuff xD

 

Bold = Name and other stats.

Italic = Gemini clause (varies in Types they go into).

Regular = The rest of the effects.

Blue = My personal notes.

Hopefully I got the prompt right here. Iffy about the wording of the first clause (maybe I should have said "This card is always treated as a Normal Monster", but then its Gemini Summon becomes an issue I think). Do forgive me if the entry isn't that good; archetypes have not been known to be my specialty. However, I do hope the themes I presented shine through.

 

Main Deck Monsters
