Maulfist Revolutionary
 
This card wants so badly to be a combo with everything, its game text is phrased just about as broadly as it's physically possible to be. It's a proliferate card without proliferate, and if it had infect it'd be adopted immediately in Modern. It boosts things to ridiculous heights in conjunction with the Theros block, and it kills things outright in conjunction with the Shadowmoor block. It's every planeswalker's new friend and it's even a 3/3 for three. It wants to be a combo with everything, and I think it just about succeeds.
 
Constructed: 4/5
Casual: 5/5
Limited: 4/5
Multiplayer: 5/5
EDH/Commander: 5/5
James H. Maulfist Revolutionary is a single-shot proliferate…or a double-shot of proliferate. You can get more charge, energy, loyalty, +1/+1, or other kinds of counters...or give your opponents more poison counters, I suppose.
 
It does this twice, coming into play and dying. It's also a 3/3 with trample for 3...green can get slightly more efficient at this cost, but this is definitely priced well in conjunction with its abilities. I can see this doing damage in Standard as an ancillary piece in some of the counter-heavy decks.
