Alright, here we go. I haven't done a competition in a really long time, so I may be a little rusty.
The aim of this competition is simple enough. Design a villain!
Having looked at Magic villains as a whole I've come to the conclusion that while there is the occasional interesting stand-out they're mostly largely generic. This isn't necessarily bad as I'm sure it gives the writers an opportunity to create some really interesting heroes, but I feel like that needs to be made up for.
Here's what you have to do:
- Create a villain. They can be represented in a Legendary Creature or Planeswalker card..
- They can be whatever colours you like, don't be afraid to try something interesting and new.
- Provide a little backstory. This can be in the form of a written section accompanying your entry or you can put it in the flavour text of your card.
- Only one villain per entrant, so make it count. Feel free to create supporting cards representing minions, friends, signature spells, etc... Anything that adds to the identity and motivations of your character.
Tip: I say that I dislike 'generic' villains. This doesn't mean I dislike characters who are 'pure evil.' Feel free to make your villain an irredeemable monster, I just want an explanation as to why they're an irredeemable monster.
1st Place reward: seven favourites of your choice and a follow (ten favourites of your choice if I follow you already.)
2nd Place reward: five favourites of your choice.
3rd Place reward: three favourites of your choice.
Competition ends on the seventeenth of June, so you've got quite a long time.
There we go... good luck! Create an awesome villain!
