Oh, and mention yours truly, Mineko Charat Lucky, when someone asks who made it.

This is pretty much a small project I've been working on. Ever since the Lissandra patch, I found out that all the pieces (Major Arcana) are in place, and can be finally implemented into a Tarot deck.

Champions that have already represented an Arcana will not repeat again on another, just so to maintain variety.

Alright, time to show and explain what, how, and why the champions represent the various Arcana. This will be ridiculously long though, so bear with me.

The Fool

MCLucky 0 - The Fool2
Main Choice
"Yep, that tasted purple!" - Lulu Lulu

Lulu fits a lot of descriptions of a Fool, she may not be stupid, but her way of thought is different even for yordle standards, let alone humans. She thinks outside of the box. She learns faerie magic purely because of her desires. She may be a bit lunatic. She appreciates Nature, and the beauty itself. A Fool's journey, ever since meeting Help, Pix!.png Pix. With her absoulte lack of common sense, she is oblivious to other people's thoughts and is unable to fit with other yordles properly.

Alternative Choice
"A new journey begins." - Wukong Wukong

Wukong is a solid contender as well. Born from stone, he's pathless, aiming around endlessly. Until he met Master Yi, and from then on, a new journey begins, to fight skilled warriors.

The Lovers

"Charmed, I'm sure." - Twisted Fate Twisted Fate (and Evelynn Evelynn)

There's only one pair of couples that is featured together in a splash, so this is perfect.

The Chariot

Main Choice
"Send me to battle." - Hecarim Hecarim

Hecarim fits this perfectly, he's a horse, and his symmetrical design fits the Chariot's theme of "split in half".

Fortune, Ship Wheel, ring any bells? Wheel of Fortune indeed.

Strength

The Tower

MCLucky 16 - The Tower2
Main Choice
"Succumb! It's inevitable." - Lissandra Lissandra

She's tall (and I mean really tall) slender as a Tower, don't you think? Besides, the Tower is never a good sign, meeting her always spells doom (all the lore involving the Ice Witch never ends well)

Alternative Choice

"Do not deny your instincts, summoner." - Udyr Udyr

The world signifies completion, and is represented by 4 things - Man, Beast, Bird and Fish. Udyr here has Bear, Tiger, Phoenix, and Turtle, which covered all four of the symbols. The four complete him.
