The winner's card will be rendered and featured on the Welcome page, and the winner decides the challenge for the next week's Contest!
Here we go, competitors: our two-hundred and sixty-second challenge!
I'm a flavor guy. I'd like to see cards that help tell the story of the War of the Spark without being Planeswalkers (Planeswalker-friendly cards are fine.)
To increase your chances of winning and to also make creating the poll easier on whomever is doing so, please try to use a render. Additionally, please try to keep your entry edits all in one post - if you need to change it you can put your old entry in a spoiler marked "Old entry" and leave the newest rendition to be seen. Just use the edit button in the top/right of your original post.
I felt like redeeming Naga Eternal, as that flavor text deserved better than a vanilla 3/2 for 3. So, I took a design from around the spoiler season of Hour of Devastation, changed the typeline a bit, added flavor text, shamelessly ripped off some artwork, and voilà:
Creature--Zombie Naga Wizard
Prowess (Whenever you cast a noncreature spell, this creature gets +1/+1 until end of turn.) Afflict X, where X is the number of noncreature spells you’ve cast this turn. (Whenever this creature becomes blocked, defending player loses X life.)

Fitting as its title is both a new ending for Magic and it shares the title with the end of a major movie franchise ending their decade long cycle at the same time.
This card provides removal of most permanents on your opponent's battlefields, while simultaneously pumping up your loyal planes walkers. It is the end game for Bolas to re-ignite his pre-mending spark into a god-like power. This card epitomizes his goal. The colors are based on his flavor. While the casting cost, a converted mana value of 5 may seem low for this, consider that it requires 3 distinct manas to cast. Is it underpowered? I believe no, because it is a massive board wipe at 5 mana, while at the same time allowing boosts of your planeswalkers. Is this great for a limited deck? Nope. It relies too much on your own deck construction and your own opponent's construction. If you run these colors, a deck splash may be worth it. For a planeswalker heavy deck it may be worth it to field more. This is one of those cards that is either worthless or priceless; given the circumstance. In War of the Spark it could be near priceless.
**Fun Fact-- There has been no Magic card named 'Endgame' or 'End game' yet at the time of this post!**
