What nicknames do you have for cards that you think should catch on?

Kelly Digges: I've got a couple that need no explanation, most of them simple but hilarious misreadings like Flavor of the Overbeing, Orzhov Enthusiast, or my personal favorite, Bacon of Immortality.

A friend of mine, though, introduced us all to an unlikely nickname for an unlikely savior. His early Limited experiences with Hovermyr were extremely positive—it just did everything he needed a card to do in those particular games—and so he took to referring to it as Hero Myr.


We quickly realized that Hovermyr can be easily anagrammed into Hero Myr V, which sounds like an anime or something. Our social circle has since referred to that card, and occasionally each other, as Hero Myr V.

More recently, the little Myr that could was joined on Hero Squad by a new partner: the extraterrestrial space ranger Moon Hero N.
