We won't change item value/rarity for the purposes of Aloyzo's Arsenal so please do not expect your submissions to spark card rebalancing. One of the reasons I strongly suggest you stick to cards that are currently on items is that a lot of the cards not on items aren't balanced.
This is answered in the submission thread... but yes and yes, assuming the old idea meets any requirements in future months. (If you submit a legendary this month, and next month the restriction is 'common only,' you shouldn't resubmit the legendary.)
I didn't say you can't make up your own cards... though that should go without saying. No new cards, no changed cards, and if you want your submission to be selected you should probably play it safe and stick to cards that players have access to currently.
May I suggest you use the Smithy to discuss potential items?
I think you show a want of ambition. Why not this?

Ahh good ol' Cardotron!
Oh! Another thing to keep in mind. Right now, we have a vendetta against cycling. So, the fewer traits on your submission, the more likely I am to like it! (This does not apply to skill items.)
Now, as far as balance goes, that would be one of the best pieces of news in quite a while
I'm also assuming you're using the term "traits" in its broader meaning, i.e. including handicaps with the "trait" keyword?
They are traits, I'm not sure how else to interpret "fewer traits."
Am I to guess that some cards are off limits (other than cards that do not fit in with an adventurers typical fare) like Bungled Heal?
I know they are, ofc. But most people would use the term "trait" to refer to the beneficial ones only (or, possibly, also to the semi-beneficial ones like Blind Rage). Interestingly enough, hardly anybody seem to be aware of the "boost" keyword. Or, at the very least, the very rarely use it when talking about non-handicap traits.
So, in essence, since I could easily see somebody else posting the very same question, why not ask myself while I was at it?
If it's not an item right now, it's a risky bet.
(Can someone help me be clearer about this? I think I've had to repeat myself about 5 times.)
That card doesn't exist anymore.
Do not repeat yourself. Quote yourself
My mistake. I was ignorant of the rules and didn't bother to read the first page.
Huh... interesting idea, not sure about the execution exactly. Really hope we don't see some competitive level items come out of this. What rarity would the item be? Would it be based on the cards included by the formula or manually set?
Rarity would be based on the formulae, most likely. Never really know what Alozyo's up to.
Gah, looks like the two I had on the top of my head have already been submitted (or close to the same): stepping staff (for Elf Wizards) and handicap martial traits (for quests).
Now I'll actually have to put some thought into it... ><
Or, don't submit anything, in order to increase the chances one of those gets selected ;D
