Premise
In case you are unaware, the actor that portrayed Robbie Rotten, Stefan Karl Steffanson, passed away some time ago. For me, this hit me especially hard despite having never watched Lazy Town for two reasons.

First, as someone who was heavily influenced by internet culture in high school, the loss of a meme's inspiration feels like a piece of the internet--and thus myself--has been taken away forever.

Second, the song, "We Are Number One" and the portion of the show that accompanies it brought back the joy of bumbling villains for me. Not going to lie; I'm a fan of the psychotic and edgy bad guys--the ones who know how to get what they want and do from time to time. However the character of Robbie Rotten as depicted in the song, along with the instrumentation of the song itself, got me hooked back on other bumbling villains such as Jesse and James from Pokemon, Eggman from Sonic (well, sometimes him), and others.

Criteria
As much as I would love to see Tay Zonday, Planeswalker or Sneezing Panda as cards, focusing on the meme aspect suits neither M:tG's fantasy setting nor my current mood. So your task is as follows:

Create two cards: one depicting an original bumbling villain, and another depicting one of their "misdeeds"

Deadline
I will be closing this contest at 12:00a EST on 8/24/2018, and will get to grades within the week (earlier if time permits; later if not). Any entries with a timestamp after that time will be dismissed for grading, though I may opt to comment on them.

Snidely Whiplash
Legendary Creature ─ Human Rogue (R)

Sylen Spring-Heel
:2::b:
Legendary Creature - Azra Rogue
: Sylen Spring-Heel gets -2/-0 and gains Flying until end of turn.
Whenever Sylen Spring-Heel attacks, create a colorless Treasure artifact token with ":t:, Sacrifice this artifact: Add one mana of any color."
Despite never having won a match, Sylen's theatrical nature (and penchant for partnering with a "lovely assistant", most of whom go on to better careers) have kept him among the most popular fighters in Valor's Reach.
3/2

Huzzah!
:1::r:
Instant
Choose any number of target creatures. Create two colorless Treasure artifact tokens with ":t:, Sacrifice this artifact: Add one mana of any color." Then you may sacrifice any number of Treasures. Huzzah! deals damage equal to the number of treasures sacrificed this way, divided as you choose among its targets. (Targets may be assigned 0 damage.)
Sylen Spring-Heel's famed fighting style is predicated on bounding across Valor's reach, gloating, and hurling the flashiest looking objects he can get his hands on at anything that looks like it can dodge.

Bonus card

Preferred Pronoun Set: T3KK-TP
Thanks to unstable, villains are technically a creature type!

Mephisto, Master Traptition | :1::u::b:
Creature - Human Villain

Play with the top three cards of your library revealed. You may play trap cards revealed this way.

"Get it? It's like trap mixed with... you get the point."

2/3


Aethernet Trap | :3::u:
Instant - Trap

If an opponent cast a legendary spell or attacked with a legendary creature this turn, you may pay :1::u: rather than pay this spell's mana cost.
Exile target spell or attacking creature. That card's owner adds it to their hand at the beginning of their next upkeep.

"When I say go, be ready to throw!"

Dr. Wahoozit |
Legendary Creature - Human Monkey Artificer | {MR}
When Dr. Wahoozit enters the battlefield or untaps, sacrifice an artifact. When you do, choose one at random—
  • Create three token copies of the sacrificed artifact.
  • An opponent reveals cards from the top of their library until they reveal an artifact, puts that card on the battlefield, and the rest on the bottom of their library in a random order.
  • Each artifact becomes a creature with power and toughness equal to their converted mana costs until end of turn.


Mad Machinations |
Sorcery | {R}
Target opponent chooses for you to draw three or seven cards. If you draw seven cards this way, whenever you discard a card this turn, you lose 1 life.
