It's that time again, fellow Cardsmiths. The time for villainy to show its dreadful, monstrous, awesome face. Time for the greatest, most devious, most mighty, most wicked and merciless to step forward. Time, I think, for the third incarnation of my design a villain competition!
This time we're going back to basics. Design me a villain- give me about a paragraph of lore about their background and history and an awesome, powerful legendary creature card. I'm looking for originality of both story and mechanics- the perfect union of flavour and function. Impress me as you have so many times before!
One caveat: No Planeswalkers (They tend to be less flavourful than creatures).
Here's an example: Orc general Azag began his war against humankind after they began to build settlements in orcish ancestral land, turfing out his people. He mustered the orcs into a fighting force and led them into battle against the humans, hoping to drive them away. The war lasted for decades, the orcs saved from extinction only by Azag's tactical brilliance- he starved the humans of resources by cutting off their supply routes. However, as the years passed Azag became less and less concerned with protecting the orcs and more with wiping out every last human- sending his troops on suicidal missions just to eke out a tactical advantage. Titled Azag the glorious, he now sought only renown, and aimed to achieve it through the obliteration of his enemies.
