Challenge wrote:
Legendary cards will almost always be rare or mythic rare, but throughout Magic's history we've seen a few examples of common and uncommon legendary cards as well.

This week your challenge is to design a legendary card that's either common or uncommon.

Please remember: You're not allowed to vote for yourselves. For further information please look at the CotW Rules.

This challenge must've really been salt-inducing if Vectron's winning. Stick out your tongue

It's salt inducing that Bloodfire Twins is second. That's three copies of every spell if you control two of 'em, folks

Tbh I'm very curious about voting preferences this time in general. Is the need to protest a single unrepeatable COTW challenge so great that we're prioritizing a joke entry over serious attempts to solve the challenge? (I haven't voted, ftr.)

Voting preference goes toward every entry either being:

a) Not legendary disguised as a legendary permanent
b) Absolutely not an uncommon effect.

Vectron just happens to be funny and sums up my feelings about the challenge
