I had actually wanted to do a critique of this long before I did that critique on your recent DMC twilight, but eh, I hadn't worked up the courage to do so.
Now, on to the art itself. First thing's first: Luna is my favorite, so kudos to you. Originality and impact both get 5 stars because I prefer to see luna as a "good" pony, and yet here you are portraying her as a not-so good pony, and begging us to consider her in such a light. However, at the same time, we see her caring for her snake...thing. (Ah heck, why don't we call it a basilisk?) There's a definite duality there, displaying both sides of the same coin, to speak metaphorically. Plus, you used your own background, which you seldom do for these.
Vision, rather paradoxically, takes a hit for the very same reasons. I can see the possibility of Luna herself becoming evil/malevolent, but I'm sure others would think she would turn back into NMM if that were the case.

Technique takes a minor blow for only one reason. the markings on the columns and on her throne mystify me. If they're cracks, then I am afraid they look more like scratches. And, if they are scratches, where is the beast that made them? The basilisk, fearsome as it is, doesn't seem capable of creating them. I apologize if that seems a bit nitpicky, but (to me), the elements of the artwork should be linked to each other. (which, you did a fantastic job of linking luna with the basilisk.)
What do you think?

I personally like the idea of her owning a snake more than a blue/black phoenix.

The closest relatable thing that snake is, is to a naga, which is a snake with a human face.
