For linking a card to Gatherer without writting the name of said card for readers, use the autocard brackets together with and equal sign and right the name of the real card. Then put the message you want inside the tags, like you would do with autocarding. Like this:
I like storm crow because I really like crows in real life, as an animal, and the card isn't terribly stupid, but packs a good deal of nostalgia and also a chunck of the game's history. So it's perhaps one of the cards I have most affection to, but not because "lol storm crow is bad hurr hurr durr".
Oh, it's a brilliant plan. You see, Bolas was travelling through shadowmoor, causing trouble, when he saw a Wickerbough Elder with its stylin' dead scarecrow hat. Now, Bolas being Bolas took the awesome hat and he put it on his head, but even with all his titanic powers of magic he couldn't make it fit. He grabbed some more scarecrows, but then a little kithkin girl asked if he was trying to build a toupee. "BY ALL THE POWERS IN THE MULTIVERSE!" he roared, "I WILL HAVE A HAT WORTHY OF MY GLORY." and so he went through his Dark Lore of Doom (tm) looking for something he could make into a hat that would look as stylish on him as a scarecrow does on a treefolk. He thought about the Phyrexians, but they were covered in goopy oil that would make his nonexistant hair greasy. He Tried out angels for a while but they didn't sit quite right. Then, he looked under "e" (because in the Elder Draconic alphabet, "e" for Eldrazi is right next to "h" for Hat) in his Dark Lore of Doom and saw depictions of the Eldrazi, and all their forms. "THIS SHALL BE MY HAT!" he declared, poking a picture of Emrakul, "AND WITH IT I WILL USHER IN A NEW AGE OF DARKNESS -- ER, I MEAN A NEW AGE OF FASHION!"
And so Nicol Bolas masterminded the release of the Eldrazi.
I think the art on this card is good up until you get to the face where it just isn't. Anyway I like the card enough for it's abilities that I just don't care much about the art and would be happy to play it in many of my casual decks.
I don't think she looks fat so much as that her trunk and her legs are just highly disproportionate. Someone with a trunk that short just wouldn't have long legs like that. It's... off.
And I wouldn't have a problem with some characters being both kick*** (rather than the butts of visual jokes) and being big. I mean, I do think that in Magic characters would probably be more likely to be lean, since they do a lot of fighting, but I don't see why representing some variation in sizes should be more controversial than representing variation in skin colors and features.
(Aside: I would like to see some dark skinned elves in Magic -- and I don't mean "drow" types either. If humans living in tropical climes in Dominaria are dark-skinned (eg. Teferi, Kaervek, etc.), why aren't any elves? What makes them all white, and does that really make sense or is it, as I suspect, a kinda sketchy stereotype ultimately based on Tolkien, who is far more than kinda sketchy about race himself?)
Yeah, I know that some of the male audience (and, heck, some of the female audience, too, including me) like seeing stereotypically "beautiful" female bodies represented on some of the cards. But surely including female characters that aren't skinny, and showing them as effective and accomplished mages or even fighters on occasion is no big deal even if some people find them unattractive. These cards' art is not, after all, primarily about titillation. Not every woman represented on a card needs to be alluring. People who want that will gravitate toward art that depicts them that way; people who don't care won't care.
But back to my point. When I did martial arts, I knew a couple of black belts who were heavy -- and who I would not want to have been fighting against. Yeah, exercise makes most people lean.
