This is a thread idea I've had for a while, and I think it's a pretty good one. Each poster should come up with a card using the name the previous poster came up with, and then post the name of the next card. Mana symbols should be done with capitol letters (WUBRG), hybrid mana being done with a slash (W/U, 2/R). (->) Should be the tap symbol.

Target creature you control gains "When this creature is put into a graveyard from play, you gain ten life." until end of turn, put two +1/+1 counters on that creature.
Next Card: Myr Paradox
Person B wrote:Myr Paradox
Sacrifice a myr artifact creature: Add X+1 to your mana pool, where X is the sacrificed creature's power.
XX: Put an X/X myr artifact creature token into play.
Whenever a myr artifact creature comes into or leaves play, you may gain one life.
(->): Put a +1/+1 counter on target myr artifact creature.
Next Card: Infectious Ultimatum
Second card won't work, it can be abused with an arcbound crusher or with itself by creating a myr with one power, then sacrificing it for two mana, thus creating an (in theory) infite loop. http://www.blackborder.com/cgi-bin/pric ... dOVLMAxEy2
Hey! look! I'm making a creature with infinite power and thoughness (even though infinite isn't a value in magic) and I'm gaining a lot of HP!
Malitar Resdine, Shaper of Planes
3UU, 3/4, Creature - legendary wizard
(->) search your library for two land cards and put them into play tapped with an illusion counter on each of them.
(->) search your library for a creature card, an artifact card or an enchantment and put it into play with an illusion counter on it.
When Malitur Resdine, Shaper of Planes leaves play remove all permanents with an illusion counter on them from the game.
If an ability or spell would cause an illusion counter to be removed from a permanent, remove that permanent instead.
Next card: Word of Destruction
