As of today, both in case of a no-deal, a yes-deal, or a delayed Brexit, will EU citizens be required upon entering the UK after 29 March 2019 to fill in a landing card? If yes, how does it look like?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.

I'm afraid that this falls into the category of "we don't know at the present." If free movement persists under the Immigration (EEA) Regulations 2016 or successor legislation, the landing cards will not be required. But the timing of the repeal of that legislation appears uncertain in the event of a no-deal departure. If there is a deal, the timing will depend on the precise details of the deal, which are as yet indeterminate. The prospect of a delay, of course, makes the already uncertain timing even less certain.
Once the EEA regulations are repealed, EU-citizen visitors are likely to be required to fill out the landing card, but the cards are also likely to be scrapped entirely (perhaps only after immigration authorities have had a chance to catch their breath in the wake of departure from the EU). In August 2017, the Home Office announced plans to stop using the cards, expecting to implement those plans by the autumn of 2017, but this never happened.
