Contest Brief

Need to redesign my magic the gathering card game front page to accommodate new features. Only need design work. Will implement the html/css myself. Preferably basing the designs on twitter bootstrap will ease development for me, but only a little.
You can see the existing page at [login to view URL]

The new page should have the following sections
-New Articles. This should have some articles on it. A photo in the shape of a card with a title, author, date, category(hash tags are fine) and some summary text
-Top Decks. This should be a list with the following information: Title, Author name, date, category(Standard, Modern, etc), # of views. There should be 4 tags you can select: All, Standard, Modern, Legacy. Only one can be selected at a time.
-Newest Decks. Same as above
-A call to action to "Share your Deck" which should open a form (the form currently on the page)
-Header which has links to the Home Page, a drop down to each of the major cateogires (Standard, Modern, Legacy), a link to the Feedback page, and a login/logout modal.
-Footer Should include existing links as well as links to social network pages


Other Notes:
Site should translate well to mobile. This is extremely important.
Updated color scheme is definitely desirable, but please note readability is #1.


The new things I want to change are as follows:
- Remove the form on the front page. Instead a call to action "Post your Deck" should be visible on the front page possibly even opening the form when you click it.
- Remove the tags from the front page.
- Clean up the social section.
- Remove the background image. White seems to be boring, maybe some off color thing or something else.

Bonus:
A updated logo would be nice. I'm willing to update the bid for a nice logo.
I like creative entries. If you think something is wrong or could be better, I highly appreciate it.
Clean lightweight designs are good, also prefer lighter colors.
There are some competitor sites to look at ([login to view URL], [login to view URL], [login to view URL]).

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Thank you everyone for helping out. Looking forward to awarding a winner.

Edit: You can see some of what I'm working on in the screen shot, but as you can tell, i'm not very good at making it look good.

    Great contest, I am a magic player myself with 14 years of experience so I have a good grasp of what might you need :). Do you want me to change the background image or should I leave it up to you? As far as the colour is concerned, do you want any specific combination, like UW or GW? :) cheers

      Hi. A different background image is fine. I'm open to anything (different image, no image, etc). Wizards provides community sites with background images for use, so updating it to a newer one isn't a bad idea either.
