    Ok, I was really tempted to go with Magnetic Fisher as a Paladin card, however, Warlock is my fav class and had a nice feedback, so Clutch of the Deep it is!

    And now, another round of feedback:

    Show Spoiler

    Dapperdog: It seens you wanted to keep the original flavour and text, that's fair, but I'll they you this, people here love flavourful cards that fits the competition theme. Also, you should DEFINALLY make an effort to make it 4 lines maximum and add the VttSC watermark, I know at least one guy here that will be quite pissed about it…

    Neoguli: It seens you already submmited, but know that I think you choosed tthe best one.

    Nirast: Honestly, I'll have to agree with Linkblade. It has flavour and an interesting effect, but it is kinda inconsistent and it is not really clear about where it wants to go. What about switch the effect to Legendary minions or 8+ cost minions instead of colossals and sunken cards? It loses a little bit of flavour but at least it will be more consistent and look more realistic. Also there's nothing wrong with the art, but it could definally be better.

    BasilAnguis: Looks simple, flavourful and nice. I think you should change the art and mess with the statline a bit, but overall it is a very cool card.

    Wailor: I'm in love with Blessing of the Ocean, amazing effect and flavor, Buuuuuuuuuut, I have a feeling that Yogg'Siren will do better, the flavour is also awesome and the art is pretty neat. The only suggestion I give is to raise the cost a bit and maybe make it targets enemies if possible. (and by the way, the name  Anchor Guy was just a place holder :P )

    ChickyChick: Grotesmal is my favorite overall, however, it is quite problematic as Demon pointed out. That said, I think you should either go with Fussy Lobstradon and change it to a Beast, or make some adjustments to Grotesmal's Tentacles.

    Alfi: Personally, I like it, quite solid and flavourful, for me you should just change "library" to "deck" and add the dot to the end and you're good to go. However, it seens some people here are confused and overthinking about the effect, that's definally not a good sign for your card, think about it before submmiting.

    Would slapping "(up to 5)" on Grotesmal's Tentacles be too brutal? I thought that having 10 cards UI is possible, but I'm not convinced anymore.

    Ok

    More feedback:

    ChickyChick
    I think Grotesmal is your best card, but I agree with the general sentiment about its tentacles' effect. What if you move the "Dredge has an extra option" to the main body and the tentacles reduce the cost?

    About your other cards, I like Fussy Lobstradon (even if I seem to be alone with this), although it should definetly be a Beast.

    Alfi
    Your card is good, but its text should use the word "deck" instead of "library" and end with a full stop. Also, I think you could come up with a less generic name than Mgrlglr that still sounds like a Murloc name.

    @Wailor

    The idea was that Tentacles increase reach, allowing to Dredge more things, so I would rather keep the effect on them. That said, I suppose with more complicated cards people have to focus more on effect from gameplay perspective, so flavour may have less meaning, so I can at least consider your idea, though I will probably just add limit note in parentheses.

    Ok

    Welcome back, everyone!

    I wasn't quite inspired earlier this week, so I decided to silently sneak in my submission. Looking forward to all the amazing prompt Sunken City and season 5 may bring!

    @Alfi

    Effects which resolve at the end of your turn trigger after timer for your turn ends, so they can't allow player to make actions, they are always resolved automatically, so this would just Dredge randomly.

    Ok

    @linkblade91: I only card I could find with an equivalent text is Roll the Bones which doesn't use "has a Deathrattle", so I'm gonna leave it as is.

    Followed the feedback and came up with this guy. Keeping the Sunken effect, but the Colossal effect has been replace with a "minions that cost 7+" one. The only colossal that can't be summoned is Crabatoa. Also made it Epic, see how it's received.

    Feedback:

    Show Spoiler

    BasilAnguis: I like it, simple, but effective design. Great if you can kill it the turn it's summoned, like with a Rancor, or in a Warlock deck.

    Wailor: Yogg'Siren simply because of the name. The others aren't bad either.

    ChickyChick: So Grotesmal would give you 5 options for dredge? Not sure how the UI would work if you have more than 2 tentacles. Either way, I like the Herald the most.

    Alfi: The shuffle effect is basically meaningless unless you Dredged, or you played Lorekeeper Polkelt before, Ambassador Faelin, or Sir Finley, Sea Guide, in all the cases the card being anti-synergistic (except for maybe Finley). Also, you can't really interact with the game after the turn ends.

    You've got a little less than 24 hours to submit.

    Alfi
    I got what the shuffle is trying to do now, but Dredging at the end of your turn means that you just get one of the three cards at the bottom of the deck randomly (effectively making the shuffle effect now almost entirely useless). The stats are fine, but it should use the VttSC watermark.

    Nirast
    The two effects are quite disparate from each other which you don't typically find on most Hearthstone cards, but I do like what the card is trying to do. The two effects don't seem that outlandishly strong, so I'm wondering if you could possibly give it an extra stat. The draw effect in particular is quite slow since 7 mana is quite a lot of pay for something that draws. I'd probably give this a solid B+ for design.

    Congrats! Guess today I learned not to submit half assed cards when I don't have the time for something better. Whelp! 

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

    I don't think people disliked your card's effect, but the fact it was trying to remake an existing card. If you had used a different name and art, it may have even reached the finals IMO.
