General Mayhem : You Remake the Legend
Elzaban the Ethereal keeps winning these. It's up to you to stop him! Scion's gonna help you, by throwing you guys the biggest bone in Legends.
For those of you just tuning in: I'm doing this challenge/contest to redesign Legends legends. I have the full 55-name list and I'll be choosing one at random for each contest. I want to see what YOU, the YMTC community, can do with the stories and flavor of these legends. This contest will (presumably) run as one-of contests going through as many of the 55 as we can before folks get bored. So far so good, so here we go!
Without further ado:
Careful boys and girls, Scion's got a spicy one for you this time. With one badass surname and one of the best card arts in all of Magic history, he has captured the imagination of new and old players alike for nigh on two decades now. This is a creature that players are happy to shim sideways into their esper decks just to lay him on the field and marvel at his awesome power.
Problem is, he's never been on-pie. It didn't stop people from loving to play him, but more than any other Legend, I believe this guy encapsulates what it is to be awesome without any support from the text box. So, let's see what YOU can do with one of the grandpappys of Legend-dom!
Please pay particular attention to Rule #7 below. Good luck!
Rules of the Road:
- Contest is open from now until 48 hours later.
- I'll be grading these super-quick on a 1-10 scale.
- The redesigns should be made with fun gameplay at the forefront and with Commander in mind.
- The card has to have a new name (think Kamahl, Pit Fighter and Kamahl, Fist of Krosa).
- Stats and mana cost are up to you, but preference will be given to entries whose mana cost, creature types, and p/t stick as close as comfortable to the originals.
- I know there've been a number of similar contests in the past, so please try to submit something new. Honor system!
- No Planeswalkers, please! I know Nicol Bolas ascended, but we're keeping Dakkon and the rest of the Elder Dragons rooted on the ground.
