With the massive amounts of legendaries that Dominaria is dumping into the ecosystem, and the advent of Planeswalkers as legendaries as well, let's do a YCtA that runs a similar vein.

Here's some art I've been holding onto for a bit:

Spoiler


I'm looking for a legendary creature or a Planeswalker card to fit this art. You have until Friday morning, when I close this thing and do the grades.

Have at it!

Liadora the Despoiler
:2::r::b:
Legendary Creature - Elf Vampire Pirate
Whenever a creature you don't control blocks, its controller sacrifices a creature.
Whenever a creature you control attacks and isn't blocked, create a colorless Treasure artifact token with ":t:, Sacrifice this artifact: Add one mana of any color."
The captain of the Wavespawn knows neither restraint nor decency, and favors her crew with frequent outlets for their own sick desires.
4/3

Play with the top card of your library revealed.

Had to balance it a few times... might need a higher mana cost?

This is closed. I'll get around to grading it sometime today.

Yeah, so grades time! >_>

"Tevish Szat"

I like the feel of this card, but I think it is a bit too strong, especially in a "go wide" situation. I think if this card's abilities triggered on "one or more creatures," then it would be a bit better as it would only cost an opponent one creature per combat and you would only get one treasure per opponent attacked. also "Legendary Creature - Elf Vampire Pirate" is quite a typeline. I like it a lot, but I'm not sure if it would all fit.

"Yarium"

I'm not sure if there is just some curse on 2-man 'walkers that paints them into such painful designs. I'm not sure how playable this card is as both it's basic abilities hurt you and build up to an effect that will more likely kill you. I'm almost certain I'd much rather just play Pyrohemia. I'm not sure the damage from the extra red mana a turn is really worth it.

"Johnny Valdez"

I'm not really reading Avatar from the art. Also I'm not quite sure about the cost for this. I think it should sit in the 6+ CMC range to be sure If you blend together all the red enchantments and sorceries that sort of mimic this card's effects, I think what you have here is somewhat undercost.

"gd1w"
I think this kind of suffers from having just a bit too much stuff thrown in for good measure.

"Dudibus"
Seems pretty straightforward, though I guess it would take a special sort of set to see two normal keywords on a card like this. Granted, she'd be just as printable if you took off the keywords and left the actual card text since both are pretty static ETB triggers anyway. Over all I like her, and, ignoring her pointy elf-like ears, I think she'd fit right at home in the Dire Fleet of Ixalan.

"Confused"
This is an interesting Dash lord. I think something about her feels a little off. Like I sort of don't want her to have first strike, but she needs the protection. I do like that she can dash in and give a temp boost to things in play long after their Dash effect basically becomes worthless.

"Mown"
I'm a big fan of non-planeswalker uses for Emblems. This is an especially fun way to slowly bleed an opponent out that tortuously grow over time.

"Q is 564453"
While I love that you picked up on the Blood Moon feel of the art, I think you went a little too into the red LD flavor and ended up making something that didn't quite pan out. That -2 is especially punishing and weirdly broadly written.

Overall we had some interesting designs, many of which were a little awkward, but all had a nice nugget hiding within them. I'm going to give the winner medal to Mown though.

It's specifically worded so that it synergizes with the ultimate. Though I can see how it could be too powerful.

Thanks for running the contest! :)
