Today's Challenge:
Spirit and Arcane

.::To Enter::.
In a single post:
  • Name exactly two other players to vote for their entries for the previous challenge. (In the event that there are two or fewer entries that you are allowed to vote for, you may vote for only one.)
  • Make a card that fits the current challenge.
  • Include an "If I Win" (IIW) for tomorrow's challenge if you win.
Each day we use the challenge of the previous day's winner. In the case of a tie, we'll use the IIW of the tied player who has least overall points. In case of a further tie, the IIW of the earlier poster will be used.

Gonna use a loose interpretation of spellshaper.

Shaping Spell 3
Artifact (R)
Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell, you may discard a creature card. When you do, copy that spell. You may choose new targets for the copy.

Bah was meant to edit mine a little, but mtgNexus was playing up. I don't expect it to win because those are some of the best entries I've seen, but if it somehow does just roll with the urban fantasy/horror thing Pygyzy put up as that sounds like an interesting take on magic cards.

Pygyzy - I am confident, that substracting infinity - or adding negative infinity - from infinity results still in infinity. There is this "infinite guests and hotel rooms" example of how it works. So your creature is infinite/infinite after the first spell exiled with make-believe counter.
Savant of Will
Creature - Human Spellshaper (R)
, discard a card: Exile Savant of Will and lose 1 life unless you pay , then counter target spell.
1/1

Mimicvat I'll make a few and they won't be silver-bordered. It's one of my favorite genres. I think it has a lot of untapped potential and would be distinct enough from Innistrad. Also you could get away with making "superheroes". I'm thinking like Detective Noir vibe with a character that's some sorta Sherlock/Batman type.
