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.

Please message me immediately if you notice a discrepancy in your entry or another's entry.

As Photobucket wants me to pay 400$/year to link to my images, I'll relocate all renders.

First place is currently tied between a protest entry and two mythics in an uncommon trenchcoat.

Phasing
This phases in or out before you untap during each of your untap steps. While it's phased out, it's treated as though it doesn't exist.

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
