Daily Card Redesign #124: Sylvan Yeti

Daily Card Redesign is a daily Magic: The Gathering design exercise where I randomly choose a card for the scenario of it being killed late during its own set's development. I design a replacement card that uses the same art, is the same color, is the same rarity, and has a name that, alphabetically, keeps it within the same collector number for the set.


I was trying to tap into the flavor of the Yeti - how it's one of those mythological beasts like Bigfoot that folks may stumble upon or go looking for. And this is why the Yeti can't come out unless there's someone else to have drawn it out of hiding. And voila, this redesign.

Note, that the design had to be simple and avoid certain things due to the fact that it first appeared in a Portal set.
