See the Mersalen design page for more information on the plane. Here is the creative thread as well for reference. Current set file.

This task will be to design the Red/white mana symbol legendary creature. Admiral Sefkis commands the largest fleet on Marsalen. Tasked by Histia with keeping order of the chaos he patrols the waters to keep pirates, whale poachers, and smugglers from causing trouble. Although intended to protect, his methods are often seen as too oppressive and heavy handed. Most of the groups would rather be left to their own devices than have their own affairs meddled and micro managed. His prowess in naval tactics and tenacity in battle is unprecedented and leaves him feared by anyone but the most reckless of pirates.

  • Legendary creature (creature type open)
  • Must be hybrid Red/white mana symbol and rare
  • Interacts with vehicles in some way.

When ~ enters the battlefield, search your library for a vehicle card and put it into your hand. Shuffle your library.
You choose which creatures block attacking vehicles you control and how those creatures block.

Whenever attack with a vehicle, create a token that is a copy of that vehicle tapped and attacking. It is an artifact creature until end of turn and has "at the beginning of your end step, exile this permanent."

Ooh I like the vehicle tutor version. Nice added benefit that it makes multiple copies not completely dead.

So this does bring up a rules issue. If you attack a vehicle and a non vehicle then how does blocking happen? Do you choose first which creatures block the vehicle and then they choose who blocks the non-vehicle?

Again: the designer credit for Homarid Elder is wrong. I designed it, not fluffy. Also I had made it a common, but then you said you were going to put it at uncommon, but now it's a common. Is that bit intended?

@guitarweeps: I figured it might be a bit dicey considering the rules. It will need to be reworded I just put it up there as is because that's essentially the effect I was going for.

@Neo - That has been corrected just haven't uploaded the new file yet. I will probably keep it common but I sometimes switch things around when adding new cards.

@Horizons - I would think the best way to do it is you choose first then they choose from remaining blockers maybe? Of course then it can be used to make everything unblockable.

Going with Horizon's version on this although I am not sure that it needs to also have the search effect or that it should be something you can do in mono-red.
