    @Wailor - thanks for your kind words, but I do like to stand out, so I was ready to discard Magical Seed itself, but not give up on the similar mechanic, as it was already standing out. I'll see if it will pan out, it will be up on me.

    Ok i guess i have to rework my card are little - overall it is fine but a few people said it has not enough Tradeable flavour. 

    I mean the OP said:

    You must create a card with Tradeable, or that synergises with the Tradeable mechanic

    • We're looking for direct synergies like Auctioneer Jaxon, not something more tangential.

    I mean it is a Tradeable card - the OP said make this or that not both ... but i guess if it will hurt my rating im going to rework it.

    Edit:

    Here is my first rework:

    Hopefully it now has enough Tradeable Flavour :) - even tough im not sure if it is not too strong now - maybe get rid of the Immune? ... also had the Idea that whenever this gets traded that the Attack will increase or something like that.

    Tradeable cards need to be situational. If the right situation might be coming up, you keep the card. Otherwise you trade it. Hero Immunity is something Demon Hunter can profit from in many situations (the first card didn't have a lot of value to trade), so I understand as to why a change was necessary.

    The issue I see with the new version is the exact opposite: it doesn't have any value to play. Who would want a 5-cost 4/4 if you can get a different card AND Attack/Immunity for the turn for only 1 Mana instead?

    I hope this explanation helps you with your final design. I think you're on to something!

    That's not what I meant by "Tradeable flavor". What I mean by "Tradeable flavor" is that most cards with Tradeable represent some aspect of acquisition whether it be something that acquire (such as Heavy Plate, Fire Sale, or Imported Tarantula) or a person that you acquire the item from (such as Impatient Shopkeep, Persistent Peddler, or Shady Bartender). Some of these are a little bit more broad when it comes to their theme of acquisition like City Tax or Overdraft, but the flavor idea is still there. You can argue some exceptions may exist, but for the most part, Tradeable cards all share this style of flavor.

    Your card lacks Tradeable flavor because it doesn't have the flavor of acquisition that existing Tradeable cards have. It's not an item or service to buy, or a person who would offer that item or service. It's just a big hulking demon. Is he going to trade his axe with you? Is that why your hero gets the +1 Attack from when you Trade him? I could reasonably buy that, but the general flavor of the card doesn't make this too apparent. It would do a better job if the card had different art or even just a different name to suggest that he's a demonic ally who can trade weapons with you.

    And I also agree with AeroJulwin. Another problem with the card is that the only reason you'd ever use it is just to use its on-Trade effect since you would never want to play a 5 mana 4/4 with no other effect. I like Tradeable cards that have a bonus effect when Traded, but there should probably also be a reason to actually play the card as opposed to just using it for trading.

    Ah ok, now i know what you mean - thanks for the clarification!

    Made a new one because i couldn't think of a suitable rework right now.

     

    I think this is way more flavourful for the Keyword Tradeable - and hopefully balanced :)

    Congrats Lundy! 

    I notice I am confused. Something I believe isn't true. How do I know what I think I know?

    Each season of these competitions has been 20 weeks long. Unfortunately this was the 20th week, therefore meaning we're gonna have to wait until season 4. I don't know when that will be, but I'm looking forward to it whenever it comes around.

    EDIT: Forgot to say, congratulations Lundy! Well deserved winner.
