Greetings fellow Cardsmiths!
For this challenge, we are going to put our superhero hats and design cards with a specific fantasy theme in mind. Your task is to:Design a card that could be printed in a Standard-legal set that is a top down design of something in the Batman mythos.
Your goal is to design a card that would of an acceptable power level in Standard and accurately depicts a Batman character, event, item, place, etc. Rules:
1) All cards must be in color pie.
2) No joke cards (although Batman themed whimsy can be appropriate).
3) Only new entries.
4) Any entries scoring 0 in any category will not be considered for the top 5.
Here are some designs to get you thinking:
You may submit the following card types: Artifact, Creature, Enchantment, Instant, Land, and Sorcery
