"actually, the designers knew what the colors he was supposed to be. Look him up on google; it says he was a fighter for green mana, and was sent to destory white/ blue. Before he was supposed to attack, he had a vision in his sleep, saw that the white/ blue was too majestic to destroy, and so he deserted the battle force. Still, a great warrior."

The stories behind the Legends legends were written after the cards were designed and released. The actual inspiration from the cards came largely from the designers' Dungeons and Dragons characters. The others are just seemingly random mish-mashes of numbers and colors.

I like Richard Thomas's art here. The detailing on his weapons is really cool.

Weeeeeell. Islandwalk is only NATURALLY(Aquitect's Will, etc.) a threat if you play U. So, if he wasn't U, he'd be absolutely useless.
Still. This BLOWS.

Actually, some were also based on real-world legends, like Nebuchadnezzar. After they decided to avoid real-world names, the big N was the only one to slip through with the original name.

You can tell the artists had no clue about what colors these cards were. A very red looking human warrior, of course costs white & blue.

7 for a 4/4 first striker, islandwalk wasn't that prevalent either, making this quite useless...

How is this guy rated above a one... I love Legends, and this guy is simply not good. 7CC for a 4/4 first strike who blocks landwalk? Ugh.

The worst part is that Blue is one of the few colors who can pull off an offensive landwalk with many of its creatures, what with Lord of Atlantis and the like... so you're probably hurting yourself more than anything.

.5/5

You can also tell that the designers didn't know too much about color. Since when is a 4/4 warrior that stops islandwalk creature blue/white?

This guy has first strike, and 4 power. that can kill how many of the other legends again? Giant Growth says everyone. that's how the designers and developers were thinking. "If this guy can kill everybody else, shouldn't he cost just shy of a Dragon?"

they were WRONG, but that's what they were thinking. and tbh, I can sort of see how that line of thinking is actually relevant on some of these guys. They have ridiculous power/toughness numbers for humans!

(compare to Rafiq of the Many, the most impressive human we've seen in a long time, possibly ever, who only has 4/4. granted, his ability is MUCH MUCH better than most of the Legends Legends, but still...)

If you combined old school P/T numbers with new school ETB effects and stuff like Exalted or Battle Cry...well....damn. That WOULD be pretty Mythic!
