Hot or Not? Scars of Mirrodin Prediction Contest (First Challenge)

In celebration of Magic‘s 17th Block, Scars of Mirrodin, MTGOAcademy will be hosting another Hot or Not contest! New sets are always exciting, and we here at the Academy are just as curious as everyone else to see which cards will be the next big things! This edition of Hot or Not will feature one challenge every Sunday until October 2, 2010. The prize will be 100 web store or bot credits (for MTGOcardtraderbot- check us out in game!), and the winner(s) will be announced after October 31, 2010 (after all, we need time to see what is hot and what is… not)! (In the event of a tie, the prize will be split evenly, rounded down, among the pool of winners. Only registered members’ votes will be counted. It’s fast, free and easy to register! Only one entry per Challenge per member. Please do NOT create multiple accounts. We do have means to check and cheaters will be banned from the site and contest! Contributors may participate!)

This week’s challenge will be accepting entries until September 18, 2010 at 23:59. Don’t miss the deadline- you won’t be counted if you do!

First Challenge – Planeswalker Preference!

Rank the above three Planeswalkers according to how many copies you think will be in Standard Premier Event Top 8s from when Scars Prerelease Events start (presumably October 15) until the October 31, 2010. This is a pure popularity contest among competitive players for the three newest Planeswalkers on the block! Their price will not be a factor; only the sheer volume of appearances between Standard Premier Event Top 8 main decks and sideboards!

For example, your submission may look like this:

  1. Elspeth
  2. Koth
  3. Venser

Good luck, and check out the WotC visual spoiler for all of the Scars of Mirrodin goodies!

  1. 1. Koth – RDW just got better
    2. Elspeth – More Soul Sisters? and U/W?
    3. Venser – Toss up with some sorta aggro control?

  2. 1. Elspeth – is just straight up good
    2. Koth – got the potential to be insane
    3. Venser – does not do anything really

  3. 1. Elspeth
    2. Koth
    3. Venser (all the planeswalkers will be great, and saying this is the worst card shows that)

  4. 1 Elspeth (she works in u/w control and white weenie)

    2 koth (hes mono red and i see alot of potential)

    3 venser (hes good for u/w control but unlike the other two hes dual color.)
