    Jaya, Task-Mage Ascendant 2 mana red mana red mana
    Legendary Planeswalker — Jaya [M]
    At the beginning of your upkeep, and when Jaya enters the battlefield, discard a card. Put a number of loyalty counters on Jaya equal to that card’s converted mana cost.
    \-3/ — Jaya deals 2 damage to target creature or player. If a creature dealt damage this way would die this turn, exile it instead.
    \-7/ — You get an emblem with “If a source you control would deal damage to a permanent or player, it deals that much damage plus 2 to that permanent or player instead.”
    | 1 |


    I need this card in any Madness deck. The wording is slightly off but thats fine. This card is pretty bonkers if it goes unchecked, it feels very "All in" and very red and fresh. It might be too strong becouse you can just discard an Emrakul when she enters the battlefield and just go to town. I like this design but it might be too much.

    Serra Reawekened 1 mana white mana white mana white mana
    Legendary Planeswalker - Serra (M)
    Whenever you cast a spell, put a loyalty counter on Serra Reawakened for each white mana symbol in that spell's mana cost.
    -1: Your life total becomes equal to the number of loyalty counters on Serra Reawakened.
    -2: Destroy target artifact or enchantment.
    -X: Create a white X/X Angel creature token with flying and vigilance.
    //3


    Devotion meets planeswalkers. Now this is a build around be planeswalker I can get behind! I don't like X/X angels, that's more of avatar's territory but that's just a nitpick. I can see this card single-handedly make new archetypes possible and that's fresh and exciting. I like it!

    Karona Revived WUBRG
    Legendary Planeswalker - Karona (M)
    Whenever you cycle a card, put a loyalty counter on Karona Revived.
    [-3]: Exile up to one target permanent for each card you've drawn this turn.
    [-3]: You may choose a card you own from outside the game and put it into your hand for each card you've discarded this turn.
    [5]


    Karona and cycling... Interesting. I'm not a flavor expert but the last time we saw Karona, it was a tribal-centric legand. Anyway, this card seems very narrow as it require 5 colors of mana and building around a mechanic that isn't present in many blocks. the two -3 abilities doesn't mesh that well but I can see how they "mirror" each other. All in all, seems fine for casual but I don't feel this design.

    Squee, Goblin Ancient 2 red mana red mana
    Legendary Planeswalker - Squee (M)
    Squee, Goblin Ancient can't be attacked.
    0: Create a 1/1 red Goblin creature token.
    -1: Squee, Goblin Ancient deals 2 damage to target creature.
    -1: Target creature you control gains "When this creature dies, return the card to its owner's hand" until end of turn.
    At the beginning of your upkeep, you may return Squee, Goblin Ancient from your graveyard to your hand.
    1


    "Squee, Goblin Ancient can't be attacked." - that is the sentence that hooked me up. Then, I read the rest of the card and yea, that's exacly what you expect Squee to be. 1 loyalty for 4 mana and it can't go any higher but the abilities create so much cool tension and the last ability is so fresh! This card is very flavorful, creative and fun. It might be even playable in a goblin modern deck, as it does it all.

    Ajani, Soul's Pleroma 1 mana red mana green mana white mana
    Legendary Planeswalker - Ajani (M)
    0: Ajani, Soul's Pleroma deals damage equal to his loyalty to target creature.
    0: Add an amount of mana of any one color to your mans pool equal to Ajani, Soul's Pleroma's loyalty.
    0: Create an X/X white Avatar creature token, where X is Ajani, Soul's Pleroma's loyalty.
    {[3]}


    Three 0 abilities without a way to increase loyalty is very interesting. Ajani as a Naya card, three balanced abilities, this card is very fresh and clean. I like it and it is very down to the ground and printable.


    Quote from FreshMeat »
    Jaya Ballard, Uncaged Inferno 1RR
    Legendary Planeswalker - Jaya (M)
    At the beginning of your upkeep, Jaya deals X damage to you or target creature you control, where X is the number of loyalty counters on her.
    +2 > Jaya deals 2 damage to each creature you don't control.
    +2 > Until the beginning of your next upkeep, creatures without flying can't block.
    +1 > Jaya deals 3 damage to target player.
    [2]


    This card is broken in half. The drawback is very interesting but the first ability is way too strong. The second one is a fine way to finish the game after you killed your opponents' board but it doesn't mash well with the first ability. The third ability is more of the same and a way to kill Jaya if she's becomes too risky... so that's interesting. Overall, interesting card but I think it is a bit too strong.

    Red treefolk makes sense more then white and less then black. I imagine it as a savage kind of treefolks that draw their power via flames. The Terrain mechanic is interesting but I don't know how much design space it has. All in all, pretty solid.

    Foxes in blue makes perfect sense as a sneaky, non-flying and mystery tribe. Your card as a nice combo of sneaky keywords and the whole package makes something pretty impressive and an interesting tension. Prowess + Skulk + 0 power + abiliy that makes your opponent want to block it - perfect, flavorful, fresh.

    When I first read the challange, Red Rebels is the first thing that came into my mind. Nice! Red rebels makes perfect sense and I'm amazed that Wizard didn't made ones before as red is the most emotional color. Your card feels mono white though, and I would have liked to see what red can bring into the mix. Flavor is spot-on, and there is a lot of design space that you could have exploredl

    Green makes sense of Dwarfs. However, your card is broken in helf. It is an efficient land destruction on a stick as an uncommon. Any fetch land turn this card into a busted LD mechine and I don't think this card makes sense as a whole package.

    1/1


    Red Illusions makes perfect sense. The ability is nice, but coping spells is a rare territory. It might be fine as an uncommon becouse it doesn't copy just any spell though. My issue with this card is that it doesn't feel very Illusion-y. It could have been a human just fine. Red Illusions may have their own identity and I would like to see it.

    Red Dryad makes sense as red can be a nature color too. Dryad that cares about basic lands makes perfect sense, and your card is very strong but not busted. Fits the uncommon rarity pretty well. All in all, classic package but nothing extraordinary.
