One of my favorite things about Magic is how often (and how well) the story is told through the card art. I think Deicide is a pretty great example of this.

With Magic Origins coming up pretty soon, I want you to make a card from that set will help tell the story of one of the five featured planeswalkers (on the off-chance you don't know who they are, it's Gideon, Jace, Liliana, Chandra, Nissa). However, in addition to all the normal stuff you'd put on a card, I also want a short couple sentence description of what the art would look like.

Moment of Enlightenment W

Instant [Rare]

Target creature gets +1/+1 and gains indestructible until end of turn. Transform that creature at the beginning of the next main phase.

After staring into the Blind Eternities, not even the multiverse could satisfy his need to know all.

-----------

Depicting when Gideon gained his spark. Source

Art would be something along the lines of Smite, except depicting Gideon against a much larger and stronger-looking opponent.

Promo art could possibly be a picture of Gideon with glowing eyes and an aura of light around him as he witnesses the Blind Eternities.

So what's this Spark thing? Is it like the moment of conception when God pokes the zygote and the next soul in line gets a body?

Escape From Memory - 5UUU
Sorcery - [M]
Exile the top half of target player's library, rounded down. Restart the game, leaving in exile all cards exiled with Escape From Memory.
The past can be forgotten, but not undone.


Art Description:
We see Jace kneeling with his head in his hands, almost in the fetal position, his face close to the camera. An elderly, bearded man in a dirty, ruffled tunic stumbles in the background, a blank expression on his face. His empty eyes stare into space without focus. Upon closer inspection, we see that Jace is holding his head in despair while casting a mind erasure spell on himself.


Story Explanation:
Alhammarret (Jace's master) kept the fact that Jace's spark had ignited a secret. When Jace found out, he destroyed Alhammarret's mind and then erased his own memories to avoid the pain of his actions. This card represents the destruction of Alhammarret's mind (milling the opponent) and then forgetting that it ever happened (by restarting the game), although the effect of Jace's actions cannot been undone (the milled cards are still exiled).

Wake of Corruption

Sorcery [M]

Suspend 2 - BBBB

Until end of turn, whenever a player taps a Swamp for mana, that player adds BB to his or her mana pool (In addition to the mana the land produces).

Much was visible, though there was no light.

{The Dark Realms, post-Liliana: several planes of swampland depicted in the same physical space, in the style of M. C. Escher.}

Will to Live

1BG

Instant

Uncommon

Choose target creature on the battlefield. That creature's controller sacrifices that creature unless that player discards cards from their hand equal to its mana cost.

Nissa is lying on her back with her eyes and mouth wide open while grasping at her chest. She is in pain as her heart has stopped completely. She knows that the possibility of death may be upon her. The poisonous mushroom laying close to her other hand. She has two choices, fight through the pain and find the will to live or let go and die an agonizing death.

Live to Fight 2RRR
Mythic
Instant

Target creature deals damage equal to it's power to each other creature without flying and each player.

"The sword had swung, the gavel fallen. She had lost everything, but still she knew she could not die here."

Art depicts Chandra, surrounded by soldiers. She's on her knees with a sword being swung, it's only inches from reaching her neck. Fire is beginning to radiate from her entire body. In the background is her burning village. View point is looking at the scene from an acute angle, about 20 feet in the air.

If Csquared doesn't judge, I guess the runner up gets to: Bejeezus.

He just won a Trial a few days ago, so I think he's still active.

It's been a week since you said this. Is it time to give the judging to the runner up?

Looks like WOTC agrees that my idea is pretty good, Chandra's Ignition is scarely similar.
