Hey Wolfunit here, I posted this topic to help kongers within kongregate community for elements the steps to get there card ideas into Elements.
READ THIS BEFORE POSTING YOUR CARD IDEA: Card Suggestion requirements
To all players who wants there cards to one day end up in Elements i suggestion you post your idea’s here: Card Ideas and Art
This area known as Design Theory is for details and articles related to the construction of cards.
Your topic belongs here if:
– It discusses components belonging to a card
– Is Theory about how cards should work?
– Is a Workshop teaching how to gather and produce ideas?
– Is about what problems in game can be solved with card ideas
Your topic belongs in the Main Card ideas section if:
– It states any idea directly
– It states a direction for a card or group of cards
Design Tools (Use these tools to design your own card ideas).

Card Art (Submit art that can be used in Elements or request art for your card idea).
Due to the overwhelming amount of requests for card art (regardless of whether the card has been voted up to the Armory or still in the Smithy stages), this thread will consolidate those topics into one to prevent clutter as well as assist aspiring artists to find and choose which art they want to design illustrations for.
Series (Section for card ideas that belong to a specific group).
Series is a group of 6 or more cards that share a function or a theme. Best way to make a series is to choose a specific game mechanic or a theme, and then design 12 cards (one card from each element) using that mechanic or theme. You can also design more than 12 if you so choose.
Once you finish at least 6 cards belonging to a series, you can start a series thread which explains the idea behind that series and also introduces all the cards belonging to that series. Cards that belong to a series, will still have their own individual threads just like all the other cards. Series thread is just a “bonus” that helps community members and developers find other cards in your series more easily.
If your series is one mechanic identical across all cards then put them all in the one idea submission. A good example of this is Pillars/Towers which all belong to different elements but are mechanically identical.
Currently there is no template for series threads. You can pick the look and layout yourself.
