Read the prompt, your submission must be a “Legendary” Massive air quotes Minion. Main focus is on the minion aspect, not the legendary one.

This is a Juror card, plz don’t nominate:wink:
6 mana 8/8 Provoke
Neutral Legendary minion
Opening gambit: Add “ZA WARUDO” to your hand. This minion has a 20% chance to skip his turn.
Hidden effect: If your waifu is on the field, teleports to it and kisses her before you ever can!
You thought you would be her first kiss, but it was I, DIO!

ZA WARUDO: 1 mana spell.
Choose a minion. Stop the turn timer for 2 seconds. Give the minion ability to attack twice. Enemies cant counterattack, while the turn timer is stopped.
If used on DIO: Stop the turn timer for 5 seconds+Intensify: Add 2 seconds to stopped time. Give Dio Flying and infinite movement turns.

Lore: Jojo’s Bizzare adventure: Phantom blood and Stardust crusaders.

Ability explanations/relations to lore

Provoke because he charming af. Hidden effect tied with his first appearances in Phantom blood.
Miss chance tied to the fact that he is always playing with those he considers weaker. Special effects on DIO from ZA WARUDO, because he is the OG user. Infinite movement turns mena he can move as many times as he wants during the stopped time, but he can only attack twice. The first time Za Warudo stops timer is stopping it for 5 seconds, then 7, then 9 and so on.

Edit. It’s still not a legendary though :frowning:

Unstoppable warmachines of death are not limited by the Duelyst constraints of “balance”


Atlas, the Brawler
Vanar General

Whenever your General attacks and destroys an enemy, reactivate it. After attacking, gain +2 Attack until the end of your turn.
Atlas is Invulnerable while attacking. Atlas cannot be stunned or displaced.

Attack buff caps at +4 attack

BBS: Landslide
Dash to and attack an enemy within 2 tiles. They do not counterattack you.

Landslide does not count towards your attack limit, so you can attack twice, and then use Landslide for a third attack. If Landslide kills an enemy, your General is reactivated, allowing for 2 more attacks. This does not refresh Landslide.

Lore: Warframe’s Atlas and Immovable and Landslide.


Chroma, the Dragon
Magmar General

Whenever your general takes damage restore 1 health and gain +1 attack. At the end of your turn, attack all nearby enemies.

0/10 Structure

Allied minion deaths can revive Inaros. The 2 damage does not have to kill a minion.

^^ There’s something wrong, I’m not seeing the text “Magmar” anywhere on this card


After looking at my current jury, I realized your not a juror so you can submit a nomination if you like. Maybe a minion that transforms your general into atlas or chroma. Your decision.


Finally got an idea

Legendary Songhai Minion
5 mana (1/10) Backstab (4) Celerity
This minion is unable to move and counterattack.

Lore-SCP foundation
