    Evil Endless Swarm of Insects B
    Creature - Insect
    Whenever <this> would be put into a graveyard from play, instead put a +1/+1 counter on it.
    5: Remove <this> from the game. Any player may play this ability.

    I dunno, just thought of it off the top, but it's meant to be somewhat strong so don't go off saying it's WAYYYY too strong. Gimme a reason.

    turn 1 - play it
    turn 2 - some altar, attack for infinite

    This card could definitely rock with Altar of Dementia.

    Altar of Dementia
    Sacrifice a creature: Target player puts a number of cards equal to creature's power from the top of his or her library into his or her graveyard.

    2nd turn win.

    Ransac, cpa trash man
  4. Istanbul Sucker MCs call me sire.

    Orrrrr you could use it with Goblin Bombardment.

    Bah-roken. There are WAAAAAAAAAAY too many ways to win with this on turn two. This is little more than DCI fodder.

    How about this, Add: you cannot sacrifice <this> to permanents you control.

    how about giving it a sort of lifeline ability- if you control another creature, return it to play at end of turn, plus with a counter- still allows it to be used for milling but it's a lot slower as you can only use it once per turn (still hideous in a big multiplayer, but so is the existing altar of dementia / lifeline combo), and allows it to survive wraths, infi-block mongers etc, but not abuseably broken.

    You could remove the control another creature stipulation to make it better, or replace it with control another Evil Endless swarm of insects to make it worse.

    Finally, you could have it so that it only returns if dealt lethal damage / destroyed by a source controlled by an opponent, so it's useless for sacrifice purposes (other than getting around edict)
