You Make the Legend II - You're Famous or Something, Right?

Long, long ago, in the age of the pre-Gleemax shift, there was a thread. This thread was taller than a giant, stronger than a dragon, faster than Split Second, more cunning than an archmage and wiser than a druid, and all that knew it loved it, for to gaze upon its face was to know desire so pure, so transcendant, that words alone cannot describe it.

It was called You Make the Legend.

Now, after far too long of not having it, I've decided to revive the idea. The rules are simple:

- The card you create must either be Legendary, a Planeswalker, or be a Sorcery or Instant with the keyword Epic, using the name provided by the previous poster. When you're done making your card, post a name prompt at the bottom of your post.

- Feel free to critique the designs of others. Yes, we're here to have fun, and critique isn't required, but we're also here to become better designers.

So, what's our first name prompt?

Hey, I forgot this game thread existed.

Yarium: OTT. Even a moderate swing followed up by dropping this and activating the X ability gives you pretty good chance of just ending the game when you trigger the Ult next turn. Of course I might be overestimating that given there's no starting loyalty.

Hi Xander, I strongly recommend checking out the primer for tips on formatting your cards so they're easy to read! It also helps you pick up issues with your cards - yours for example, doesn't have a creature type! With that in mind, your card might look more like:

Yilandra, Heir to Rynock |
Legendary Creature - Human Knight(?)
Exalted
When Yilandra, Heir to Rynock enters the battlefield, put a red 1/1 knight creature token with doublestrike and a white 1/1 knight creature token onto the battlefield with ": Target creature gains guard 3 until end of turn."
6/6

And while the card is too long for guard reminder text, for guard 3 it would read (Whenever this creature is dealt damage, redirect 3 damage to a creature you control), subsituting 'a' for 'target' if you really wanted to target for whatever reason.
In general, I think the cost is a bit wonky and the card is trying to do too much, but it's a neat concept.

Anyway, onto your challenge!
