Is it too late to concede to UC? I have to contend with snakes in the house (don't ask; I'd rather not go into a tirade) and I don't believe I'll be able to put my best foot forward for this contest.

Diving Skyknight |
Creature - Human Pegasus Knight | {C}
Flying
When Diving Skyknight attacks, you may have it lose flying until end of turn. If you do, it gains +2/+0 until end of turn.
"Through cloud and sky, we hear the cry.
Through pain and sorrow, we bring tomorrow."

— Oath of the Knights of Pagi
[2/2]


I thought for a while as to whether I should keep a Common as my entry, but I quite like it. I think it gets the idea across that it's losing flying because it's diving in from the sky to increase the power of its attack, so it takes the flying keyword and makes it into something that matters beyond just what can or can't block it. It's pretty good at teaching newer players to attack often, as it gives a safety for attacking into a defending creatures (due to flying), while also giving extra power for attacking into no defending creatures (going up to a 4/2). As the player goes up in skill level, they'll realize that they can use the +2/+0 boost to kill a creature that's got 3 toughness or higher through attacking even if they couldn't kill it while defending. My only real question to myself is if this should be a 1WW or 3W cost creature. 1WW makes it a bit harder to cast early, but really great when you do get it out on turn 3, which is where this shines, but 3W means you're more likely to get it out on turn 4, and it's probably worth 4 mana overall. In the end, I stuck with 3W because it feels more in line with Charging Griffin rather than Wingsteed Rider.

I have to say your first criteria was significantly more compelling than any of the other ones.

because all of the criteria were similar or because the criteria itself was interesting

JV vs Mata is the fight of the century and it is a shame we're blowing this load in the round of eight

2/3
