Notes and Nonsense
I think the only time I don't write nonsense is when I make sandwiches. Anyhow, this time I made a Magic the Gathering concept. Why, you ask? I'm not even sure myself, but I take it as a challenge from a certain person. Shauku is a black card that has the powerful effect of banishing any monster by tapping it, at the price of unable to attack when other creatures are present and high upkeep costs. According to the lore, Shauku was an evil vampiress that awoke against the Jamuraan people during the Mirage Wars. She was a dangerous creature, capable of draining the life from all other beings to assist her undead existence. At this period, she also spawned a covenant of mages that made her a strong political power.
P: Vampiric passive, Shauku gains free lifesteal and spellvamp as long as she continues attacking, easily done with her gap closer and autoattack resetter Torn Asunder.
Q: A simple nuke with a light health cost, rewarding you with a longer magic resist reduction that can help boost your ultimate if you can attack a few times. This also helps on-hit effects, so it's recommended to get a few while you're at it.
W: Gap closer and reset. This makes Shauku a very potent chaser so as to take down her targets. Again, helping you to trigger a few extra on-hit effects while you're at it. Note that even though it has a high AP scaling at 110%, it works with lifesteal and not spellvamp since it's an AA buffer.
E: AoE slow that basically prevents a target from moving for 3 seconds if you land it properly. can also be used to disrupt.
R: Single target finisher ultimate. Very deadly, as long as you don't have nearby friends.

Her kit is simple enough to understand, Phtisis your victim, Torn Astunder to chase, Entombment when necessary, throw in The Eraser for the finishing blow. Shauku excels at single-target focus with a little utility with Entombment. Hmm, this does seem like a nice twist to my usual Touhou concepts.
