Daily Card Redesign #128: Hunting Cheetah

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.


Seeing this field made me want to give this cheetah plainswalk. But, as it turns out, Zodiac Rooster, one of the few plainswalkers in all of Magic: The Gathering, makes an appearance in the same set. So, that option was out.

Haste is in green, but it only rarely appears on green cards. However, this would be a good time for green to get a haste creature, right? Cheetahs are well-known for their speed! Being fast is typically represented in three ways: flash, first strike, and haste. First strike and flash are out because this card appears in the set Portal Three Kingdoms. So, haste it was.
