General Mayhem : You Remake the Legend


FirstTurnKill turns in a whopper for the whopper from Legends, Dakkon Blackblade. It's spicy, it's juicy, and flame broiled with Vindicates on demand! He got a 10 out of 10 for his design, but Elzaban, slayer of contests notably did not enter. Will he return with a vengeance? Will FTK double down on wins? Or will someone from the shadows come in and swipe the victory?

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:


Rubinia Soulsinger


She's got a powerful ability and a hauntingly beautiful picture. The original Control Magic on a stick is due for an encore performance. Her ability never stuck to very much, feeling more mono . What's funny is that she was originally called Titania. How will you YMTCers craft a benevolent fairy godess of the woods and make her feel like she belongs in all three colors? We'll see! Good luck! 


Rules of the Road:



  1. Contest is open from now until 48 hours later.

  2. I'll be grading these super-quick on a 1-10 scale.

  3. The redesigns should be legendary creatures made with fun gameplay at the forefront and with Commander in mind.

  4. The card has to have a new name (think Kamahl, Pit Fighter and Kamahl, Fist of Krosa).

  5. 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.

  6. I know there've been a number of similar contests in the past, so please try to submit something new. Honor system!

  7. No Planeswalkers, please! I know Nicol Bolas ascended, but we're keeping Dakkon and the rest of the Elder Dragons rooted on the ground.

Rubinia, Soulsinger -
Legendary Creature - Faerie Mystic
Flying
:gwm::gwm:, exile a creature card from your graveyard: Put a +1/+1 counter on ~ and target creature.
"Rest now, gentle soul, and let us be strengthened by your grace."
2/3 
=================

I know the change to the name is only minor, but I felt that the changing of "Soulsinger" from a surname into a title took the character into an entirely different direction and feel.
Let's do this.

Rubinia, Thrallspeaker
Legendary Creature - Faerie M
Flying, vigilance
: Gain control of another target creature until you activate this ability again. As long as you control it and Rubinia, Thrallspeaker, it has trample, and Rubinia is the source of all damage it deals. (For example, if she has lifelink, it causes you to gain that much life. If she has deathtouch, any amount is lethal damage.)
2/3


(If she's a commander, it counts as commander damage dealt by her. Bit too format-specific to put on the card as reminder text.)
Rubinia, Soul Mimic
Legendary Creature - Faerie
You may have Rubinia, Soul Mimic enter the battlefield as a copy of any creature on the battlefield except it gains "Creatures with the same name as ~ get +1/+1." If you do, gain control of each creature with the same name as the copied creature.
A queen to the end, her best prank was her last.

Whenever Rubina, Soulsnarer becomes the target of a spell or ability you may redirect that spell or ability to a creature you control with a snare counter on it.
When Rubina Soulsnarer would die, you may sacrifice a creature you control with a snare counter on it instead.

2/4

A song of war. A dream of peace.

Are you serious. I was certain that I wouldn't need to fear anyone else doing this, so I delayed entering.

One word for you: IMPRINT

Rubinia, Phyrexian Duplicant
Legendary Creature-Faerie Shapeshifter
Flash, haste
Imprint—, : Exile target creature card from a graveyard (The exiled card is imprinted on this creature).
Rubinia's power and toughness are equal to the combined power and toughness of all cards exiled with it.
Rubinia has all abilities of a card exiled with it.
*/*


I know haste is offpie for green-blue-white, but this card was offpie to begin with.  I needed to give it haste because you have to imprint it the turn it enters the battlefield.  Note that the CMC of Rubinia, Phyrexian Duplicant plus the extra for imprinting equals the CMC of Rubinia Soulsinger. 

It's hard to challenge the seasinger
Rubina Soulsweller

Legendary Creature-Faerie
: Gain control of target creature with power greater than Rubina Soulsweller.
: Put a +1/+1 counter on target creature.

You don't need to consider this, but I came up with something, and this was the appropriate place to post it.

Rubina Leafwhisper
Legendary Creature - Faerie
At the beginning of each player's upkeep, that player chooses a creature he or she controls. Gain control of it until that player's next turn.
Her embrace is like the sunrise, warm and inevitable.
