Magic: the mechanics

So awhile ago I came up with the amusing idea of coming up with computer game mechanics based on various magic:the gathering mechanics when I found this list

I put this idea on the backburner for awhile until it came back up when hanging out with a friend of mine. I gave him mechanics and he came up with quick ideas on some of them. So I am going to get around to starting this up and posting here. If you come up with any yourself I’d love it if you posted your ideas in the comments section either here or in the posts where I actually post my idea for a mechanic. First one to follow later today. Any suggestions on what mechanic to start with?

edit: as a note these may follow the mtg keyword either in flavor or mechanically but I’ll try to do both if i can
