Let's get started:
Urza, Academy Headmaster
Urza, Academy Headmaster
This card is unique. It was created for a "joke" set called "UnStable" (link to Wizards full set list). A "joke" set meaning wacky abilities, effects, and challenges that gain you in game bonuses for completion of the tasks. Some cards ask you to involve players outside your game. Things like get as many high 5's in the room in 1 minute, which gives you bonuses to creatures. Others are effected by the type of clothing you are wearing. (i.e. denimwalk, this creature is unblockable if opponent is wearing denim.) This card is the only card in the history of the game requiring you to visit a website to figure out what it does. It's abilities are determined by going to askurza.com and clicking on the appropriate ability. It generates a random effect from a list.
Some examples of these abilities are:
+1: Create a 3/3 black Beast creature token with deathtouch.
+1: Reveal the top card of your library. If it’s a land card, put it onto the battlefield. Otherwise, put it into your hand.
+1: Until end of turn, up to one target creature gets +1/+1 and gains first strike, vigilance, and lifelink.
-1: Reveal the top five cards of your library. You may put all creature cards and/or land cards from among them into your hand. Put the rest into your graveyard.
-1: Draw three cards, then put a card from your hand on top of your library.
-6: You get an emblem with “Whenever you cast a spell, exile target permanent.”
-6: Create three 1/1 black Assassin creature tokens with “Whenever this creature deals combat damage to a player, that player loses the game.”
-6: You get an emblem with “Whenever a creature enters the battlefield under your control, you may have it fight target creature.” Then create three 8/8 blue Octopus creature tokens.
Whether fighting Phyrexians, founding the Tolarian Academy, or just enjoying retirement, Urza always kept his head.
