A real person represented in a custom Magic: The Gathering card.

Image: A real person represented in a custom Magic: The Gathering card. The lower half of the card contains the rules text for how it would be played in the game. The upper half frames the main illustration: A humanoid bunny stands in the foreground, using one swiping motion to throw, as if they were shuriken, three slices of pepperoni which pop out of the frame. She is wearing a pink polka dotted dress and a necklace with a heart-shaped pendant. In the background there is grass, roses, a large sunflower, and a wooden wall painted to look like wood. The person's name is featured at the top left and in the rules text, but is blurred for the sake of anonymity.

The rules text is as follows:

Type: Legendary Creature - Rabbit Shaman

When [blurred], Patron of Coteries enters the battlefield or at the beginning of your upkeep, it gains your choice of battle cry, first strike, flying, haste, lifelink, or vigilance.
[Tap]: Target creature or spell you don't control gains protection from all colors until end of turn.
[X mana][1 mana], [Untap]: You gain X life. Any player may activate this ability.

 

Translation for those who don't play Magic: This card has three abilities. The first grants itself a new ability at the beginning of your turn, so it gradually gets more powerful. The second lets you protect other cards from most effects, but only your opponent's cards. The third ability can be used by any player to undo previous damage to themselves, but only if you used the second ability or attacked first. Using the third ability makes this card no longer 'used up' for the turn, allowing you to attack, defend, or use the second ability again.
