Hey everyone. In magic, black is the colour of ambition. It's about power at any cost. Many people mistake it for the 'evil' colour, since it doesn't have any moral compass. Nevertheless, black's philosophy means it is deeply driven and will do whatever it takes to achieve its goals. It's deeply protective of the things it loves.
On the other hand, it's also capable of this kind of magnificent evil:
Archfiend of Ifinir is my official favourite magic card of all time. I love it more than I love the Scarab God (whom I love a lot). I love it more than I love even Diregraf Colossus. The awesome art, the good stats, that fantastic build around ability. It shows that if there's one thing black is as a colour in magic, it's awesome.
Your challenge is to create a monoblack rare or mythic rare card. It has to be powerful but simple. It has to make my opponents cringe in fear. Most importantly, I have to be able to do a maniacal laugh whenever I play it.
1st prize: Five favourites of your choice, a follow and a spot in the hall of fame.
