Shadow Steed Common
Netherworld Mount [2]
Mobility. Turn and maintain :: Target Character gains +2 Fighting and Mobility, and you may sacrifice this card to cancel an Event that would damage or smoke the target.
MON MON MAG 2 / MON

translation
[2] - This Character has 2 Fighting, so it deals 2 damage in combat if undamaged, and can take 2 damage before it is smoked.
Mobility - This card does not have to turn to change locations or intercept an attack (side effect: it can also intercept while turned).
Turn and maintain - Turn to generate this effect, and you may choose to not unturn this card to keep the effect going.
rules text - Basically the turn and maintain effect adds the Steed's combat abilities to another Character, and also lets you sacrifice the Steed to save that Character.
cost - You must have 2 Monarchs resources and 1 Magic resource in your resource pool to play this card, and you must pay 2 Power.
resources - While in play or in your smoked pile, this card adds a Monarchs resource to your resource pool.

@Ayxmirdyrer - Thanks! Yeah, it looks so much better with the retro template.

If there's no one else posting, why continue waiting? That's just illogical and tends to kill threads. Granted, Hooliganj, you just posted an entry, but otherwise, waiting around for the arbitrary due date doesn't make sense.

I think this is a pretty decent card, but I'm here to nitpick. Immediately, I don't know how well it fits the picture, but I guess it goes as well as some cards Wizards have done. It's a little strange, in what the card does, however. You can look at your opponent's next card, and then draw a card yourself. You would normally expect the two following effects to both relate to the same card, or even the same player. It would flow better, I think, if it had let you choose what to do with that card (unless you chose yourself, of course, your card already works in that way).

Thething1991
Defiant Warhorse 2 mana symbolBlack mana symbolRed/white mana symbol
Creature – Horse Blue mana symbol
Whenever ~ attacks, creatures defending player controls attacks you next turn if able.
Whenever ~ deals combat damage to a player, that player sacrifices a creature.
When defeated, a general surrenders his horse. When a Black Scourge rides into the camp of the enemy, it's a sign of war.
2/2

An interesting card, but it feels odd. It seems like a card made to fill in two missing slots in a design skeleton. I don't really see how the two abilities interact. Also, I think that repeatable removal (which this can pull off by getting through once, and forcing them to tap their creatures out and be unable to block unless they play another creature next turn) should make it a rare card. I also wouldn't have thought of that kinda effect looking at the picture, maybe the second half, but that first ability seems random.

lordofthetoasters
Dark Horse Black mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Creature – Horse Blue mana symbol
Whenever a creature with power less than Dark Horse’s enters the battlefield, sacrifice Dark Horse.
3/3

I think this is a fairly solid card, but I think that drawback is a little too much. Think of how often tokens will be played, as well as (for Limited) how many small common creatures there are. I think you'd be lucky to even get a chance to attack with this, probably not even block. It would've needed to be a larger creature, but that could've been difficult to balance. You'd have been better off with creatures with higher power, I reckon. It definitely fits the picture great though, and “Dark Horse” is a perfect name.

Noahlotr
Elegant Nightdasher 4 mana symbolWhite mana symbol
Creature – Horse Blue mana symbol
Protection from black, lifelink
When the Nightdashers run, there is nothing to fear.
2/4

This is definitely a good card, and I could see the protection from black in the picture, though don't really see the lifelink. Regardless, it's a fairly good card, though I see it as being neglected except in drafts, really. Not really much to criticise on, here, though could be a little costly, seeing as it's not that strong.

Parasitic Affliction Black mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Enchantment – Aura Blue mana symbol
Enchant creature
You control enchanted creature.
2 mana symbol, Sacrifice enchanted creature: You lose 2 life and the creature’s owner loses 2 life. Any player may activate this ability.

I'll go with the word version, though it'd help if it had the same text as the render. This basically reads as “Black mana symbolBlack mana symbol -> Gain control of target creature unless its controller sacrifices it and pays 2 mana symbol and 4 life.” That's quite strong for 2 mana, gaining a creature, or killing it and making them pay mana and life. Also, the sacrifice part of the ability needs to be in the text, not as a cost (i.e. after the colon), because only a creature controller could sacrifice it, as you can't sacrifice a creature you don't control. I can see how the card fits the picture, though I think when scaled down to fit on a card, you probably wouldn't be able to see the eyes as easily and might not understand – flavour text could help here.

Bad Horse, the Throughbred of Sin 3 mana symbolBlack mana symbolBlack mana symbolBlack mana symbol

Protection from white
Other Villain creatures you control get +2/+2 and have protection from white.
Bad Horse, the Thoroughbred of Sin's power and toughness are each equal to the number of Swamps and black creatures you control.
*/*
He rules the Evil League of Evil with an iron hoof.

Interesting. I don't quite get the Villain thing, or the Un-sounding name, but okay. I'm not too sure how the picture looks like a Legend, but I'll go with it. I think it's a decently good card, though perhaps outranks Nightmare a bit too much (the only difference would be yours is less splashable, but who's splashing a card that cares for the number of basic lands of one type?), though it is mythic. The protection from white is a nice, simple touch, although I don't really see that in the picture so much.

F0x3d
Darklight Transformation Phyrexian Black ManaPhyrexian Black Mana4 mana symbol
Enchantment – Aura Red mana symbol
Phyrexian Black Mana Can be paid with either Black mana symbol,White mana symbol, or 2 life.
Enchant Creature
Enchanted creature gains black and horse in addition to its other types. Creature gains forestwalk, protection from white and black, trample, and first strike.
If this enchantment is destroyed, exile it.
The host's body is completely transformed, making it a deadly warhorse that can sneak behind enemy lines. The transformation requires a great deal of magical mastery.

I'm assuming that you've used Phyrexian Black Mana for something else, as we don't have hybrid phyrexian symbols. I like how it works, too. However, I would say that it seems quite expensive (6 mana, or 4 mana and 4 life) to make a creature get trample, first strike and then conditional abilities (vs. forests, or black or white), without giving it a boost to power or toughness. Also, it'd be worth noting that giving it protection from black would remove the Aura. Perhaps if this had cost without the 4 mana symbol, it might have been better.

"Its cerulean glow froze all of our machinery, even my glasses, to the core." -Sai Pao, Head Scholar

This seems a little expensive, considering Stony Silence, though I suppose that's in a colour used to artifact removal. I don't quite see how this fits in with the picture, unless you take a crop of the moon and leave out the horse. Even then, that seems rather odd for this card. I'd say it's fairly balanced, although I reckon it could definitely be cheaper, would you consider using it? I wouldn't even sideboard it, personally. That's not to say it's bad design – there are plenty of cards I wouldn't use that already exist.

Kagerowrs
Lunatic Captivation 4 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlack mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Sorcery M Mana for MTG Extra
You control each other players during their next turn. (You see all cards that player could see and make all decisions for the player.)

I don't really have much to say, this is a fairly good design. I do however think that it doesn't fit the picture that well, I don't really see the “controlling a player” there. Also, in a multiplayer, this would clearly outrank Time Stretch, which is a 10 mana card. You'd take two turns, plus all your opponents' turns. Even 1-on-1 Mindslaver is a total of 10 mana. I think it needed to cost at least 2 mana symbol more.

This horse breaks you.

I think this is a neat card, although it seems a bit off. You could potentially pay 1 mana symbolWhite mana symbolBlack mana symbol to get a bounce effect, which are nearly always blue. Might've been better as White/black mana symbolBlue mana symbol, that way you're stuck needing blue. It does fit the card a little, although I don't see the bounce effect in the picture.

Instant Colorless mana symbol
Choose one or both: Target creature gets -2/-2 until end of turn OR/AND Prevent all combat damage dealt this turn.
The woods is always quiet at night, mostly because there's no one to scream...

I think the card is quite well balanced, although being able to both effects at common might be too good. Also, it does feel a bit as though this card was filling two slots in a design skeleton like they had been forgotten or something. Also, I don't really see how well this fits with the picture, perhaps if you ignore the horse, but...

hooliganj

Again, I'm not so good on this one, but I'll try. I think the boost this can give is fairly strong, and might warrant it to be a rarer effect than common, however it seems fairly highly costed, so I suppose it's alright. I don't know how well it fits the picture – I didn't really see it as a “helping” card.

Card Notes
I didn't want to go Phyrexian with the card, as I though it would be done in a lot of other entries and it would be a bit redundant. The ability compliments the flavor of a dark, yet seraphic, tormentor. You can't get away from it. It just keeps coming back. Think of it as a big, gimmicky Core Set rare to top off all the newbie/intro decks. It could also be easily shifted into black, but I thought white would have some nice flavor.

EDIT: Added some more info to the card notes. Also changed P/T and mana cost.

Thoughts
For me, this art just looked like some powerful White/Black Planeswalker, likely some kind of necromancer.

The first ability shows a separation of the body and soul, which I thought would be an interesting concept. The controller keeps the spirit while you get the body. Obviously you could just keep cycling your own creatures to get around the drawback, but isn't cutting yourself a good chunk of what black is about?

The second ability shows an infusion of power into the undead. But why should it be only your creatures? Trinity throws all of her power into increasing the dead's strength, to the point where she does so indiscriminately.

The final ability is what I envision a truly Necromatic Ultimate. Unfortunately Liliana has already taken mass Resurrection, so Trinity is once again left to her own devices and instead simply rends soul from body and calls them all to service. Sure you'll likely only do it once, but after those effects will you really need to do it again?

Looked like something that could easily be in Coldsnap, so I figured a snow card would work.
