CCL December Finals/Round 5

"A New Crew"

Welcome to the Card Creation League! Everyone is free to participate in either or both of the first two rounds. Come join us!

Theme

It's Deep Magic Lore Month here in the CCL and for a lot of players, the defining storyline of Magic remains the Weatherlight Saga. This was the first time Creative attempted long-term storytelling, and the characters remain some of the most significant figures in Multiversal history. Unfortunately a lot of the cards originally created for those characters don't really hold up from a gameplay standpoint. Recently new versions have been created for several of them, but there's enough meat in these characters' storylines for further cards!

Challenge
Design legendary creature cards for two characters from each of the following lists.
Weatherlight: Gerrard, Sisay, Squee, Starke, Takara, Ertai, Rofellos

Phyrexia: Yawgmoth, Crovax, Greven, Tsabo Tavoc, Volrath, Davvol, Gix
Clarifications
Show
  • That's four cards, exactly two from each list.
  • Make sure to include a rarity.
Contestants:
@netn10
@Ryder
Your submissions are tentatively due Friday, January 10th, 23:59 EST.

Special note: Due to this being a busy month for many people in terms of traveling, seeing family, working overtime, school/university finals, et cetera, a lot of deadlines have been extended. In this case I am explicitly planning to not begin the final round until the beginning of January!
Schedule
  • Round 1 — Open to Everyone (December 1st–8th)
  • Round 2 — Open to Everyone (December 9th–16th)
  • Rounds 1 and 2 Critiques (Due December 19th)

  • Top 4 — Open to top 4 finishers (December 29th–January 2nd)
  • Top 4 Critiques (Due January 4th)
