    These need some discussion...

    Ancestral is strong but probably fine. It is immensely strong if you can pair deathtouch and first strike but at 1/1 it should be mostly reasonable.

    Arcane is unprintable as is because I think it does weird things with global +X/+X effects... besides, what do you mean anyway? Highest power or toughness? Both? But we might be able to use "base" technology (Diminish, for example)...

    This creature has base power equal to the highest base power among Spirits and base toughness equal to the highest base toughness among Spirits.

    This is too good for one mana. Look at Eldrazi Mimic, I guess. That only lasted for a turn.

    Veil is completely broken and format warping at 1 mana. I have no idea what this should cost, maybe like 4 to 6...

    Ire is interesting but I'm not sure. Likely fine but could lead to some degenerate combos.

    Soul... No.

    But, change it to squirrels and maybe you can work it into the next Un-set (Unplugged) in 2024.

    While I'm sure there are "easier" versions that exist (agreed the ones you cite are more elegant), I'm not sure it's a math nightmare as you say it is.

    It's all players responsibility to take note of currently "marked" damage on creatures in play. If it was not, then how could any one kill a creature from multiple sources of damage (and -X/-Y effects) in a turn? First / Double Strike? Combat damage, and damage post combat? How would Inflame work? Ogre Enforcer? Etc.

    This would simply double the damage marked on it and add more if the discard effect was used.

    Might be best suited for a repost / link in the Custom Card Ruling forum, but the idea seems fascinating.

    How or does it work with cards revealed from your library? Future Sight and similar.

    These are awesome and seem well balanced. Nice job.

    Staycation is a bit non-ituitive since we've only seen explore tied to a creature, when a creature comes into play or something similar. So... did you mean "target creature explores" or did you mean you explore which would probably change the rules:

    (Reveal the top card of your library. Put that card into your hand if it's a land. Otherwise, put a +1/+1 counter on this creature, then put the card back or put it into your graveyard.)

    The bolded part wouldn't make sense. But omitting it would still work with a rule change, then you would print this reminder text on this card.

    Also, this should trigger once per combat (barring being hit by first strikers) not once per creature, yes?

    I have some (hopefully) helpful thoughts I think no one has yet touched on, but I don't think I can get to them today.

    I'll be back soon, or you can message me if I forget!

    Have you checked this out? Yeah, I know - another forum I guess you would have to join, and it looks like there is not a lot of activity, but there are some blokes mucking about there.

    Failing that, there is a Contact link to the left.

    Something is wonky with Final now. Are you saying if they can't reattach to someone not you, then they lose the game? So if they are the last opponent, they lose? Or if you are playing 1 vs 1 they just lose? No way, no sir or madam.

    The self reanimate clause needs an cost. It's too easy to dump or self mill into the grave really early, and then 4 life is automatic every turn (depending on how you are fixing the above problem).

    Also advice: Try to keep the old versions of your ideas in your posts at the bottom or spoiler tagged. It's always weird to read feedback that doesn't make sense then come upon "changed everything" notes.

    I hate it.

    I appreciate every Unglued, Unhinged, and Unstabled card so far, but I just don't get this one.

    But that's okay... Unstable has been amazing so far!

    Accelerated Growth 3G
    Double the number of counters on target permanent.

    Inspired by Doubling Season

    Accelerated Growth and Growing have a problem according to Wizards, and that problem is planeswalker counter doubling. There is a reason very few cards since Doubling Season haven't had the clause where it lists all permanent types except planeswalker.

    Is it balanced at 4 mana and an one shot? Yeah, probably. But Wizards wouldn't do it. They seem okay with incremental counters (Proliferate) but the doubling seem to be non-set releases for now... Deepglow Skate for example.

    I would say it can be non-planeswalker and be 1 cheaper like everyone else, or it can stay but be more green or 1 more to cast.

    False Guide I like better as Loyal Sentry.

    The rest seem cool!

    I assume any kind of rental, card sharing, or account sharing via a third party violates the MTGO Terms of Service?

    If it's not your account, then maybe the risk to you is low if it's pay per month.

    Correct me if I am wrong, I'm just curious.

    EDIT: Is it this?

    How do you choose an opponent in multi-player? I assume changing "an" to "target" should fix.
    It works like Fact or Fiction. You choose the opponent on resolution.

    Huh. How come I never noticed that? I play FOF. Weird, but thanks for letting me know.
