Thanks for the win! I agree with the assessment that it should have been a Legendary land after going back and reading my card again.

For this Create a Card, create a Planeswalker that could see print at the Common or Uncommon rarities.

I'll be judging on Flavor, Balance, and Creativity as always, with one minor change. All of the areas will be worth only 5 points so that the scale isn't so biased towards Flavor.

My submission for this contest, were it to be presented to me, would be as follows:

Eleai, Llanowar Bone-Breaker GB

Planeswalker - Eleai [Common]

+1: Add G or B to your mana pool. Eleai deals 1 damage to you.

-1: Target creature gets -0/-1 until end of turn.

-4: Add GGBB to your mana pool.

{1}

I understand the -1 ability is a little powerful but when you think about it. if you use that first she dies. being the "ice queen" i would assume she could freeze or unfreeze at will.

Conditions are everything for this planeswalker, he's not that powerfull on his own.
He creates baby Plants.
He protects them and all babies.
He loves Birds of P, Eldrazi minions and Elf so much, they got extra strong with him.

Gonti, Aether's Will - BB
Planeswalker - Gonti (Uncommon)
{0}: Put a 0/1 black Minion token onto the battlefield
{-1}: Target player discards a card
{-1}: Put a -1/-1 counter on target creature
(3)

The key for me here is the idea that uncommons can exist multiple times in a world, while rares and mythics are.. rare. This card gives Ghirapur's Aether its own conscience, with that essence showing in replaceable manifestations.

Yashini, Cursed One
1BB
Uncommon
Planeswalker-Yashini

+1 Deal 1 damage to target creature or player. You gain 1 life.
-1 Put a 1/1 Black Aetherborn token onto the battlefield.
-5 You get an emblem with "Creatures you control get +1/+2 and lifelink."

2

"Hopefully all my brethren will get some freedom."

It's a small drain to something, with a backup strictly worse Lingering Souls. I expect this to be fringe playable in Standard, and good in Limited. The emblem is just there to ensure interaction, and is intentionally dead on a small board.

Notes: The good news is that this isn't completely busted because you can't -1 her without killing her. Otherwise, this seems a bit too generic for my tastes. As written, yeah it's an ice queen. It does ice things.

Notes: Who doesn't love Fblthp? Also, I like the uniqueness of this card - it does some things that planeswalkers don't normally do. Cool.

Notes: Not technically a planeswalker, but it has the same concept behind it. I like the concept of a colorshifted and nerfed Deathrite Shaman, though this seems really weak even for an uncommon.

Notes: I like this card a lot, we don't see many planeswalkers that have all zero and minus abilities. This one does seem a bit strong though, even for an uncommon.

Notes: As someone who loves Knights/Soldiers as an archetype, I'm drawn to this card. This card seems reasonably balanced, if a bit on the weak side. I wouldn't look to slam 4 of it into my Knight/Soldier deck. I do like the idea of planeswalkers having more static abilities, though. I feel like they're getting stale with three loyalty abilities all the time.

Notes: Seems reasonably balanced and can't do anything crazy the turn you cast it, which is pretty on-par for a 4-cost reanimator card at Uncommon. I like it.

Notes: As I mentioned earlier, I really like the idea of static effects on Planeswalkers. This seems pretty powerful but not overly so. In limited it seems like it'd be a slam-dunk for red decks.

Good job everyone, I'm pretty happy with how this Create a Card turned out. I will admit I was a bit disappointed I didn't see anything costing more than 4 mana because one of the easiest ways to drop rarity is to make a card cost more, but otherwise well done to all.

The winner is Antalagor, with Grokk, Goblin Archmage.
