Reactivation Challenge #46 - Hybrid Contest

Original Challenge

Old Description/Rules:
I recently had a contest that went really well, so I thought I'd try something else. Make a card that uses hybrid mana in some way. This can be in the mana cost, or in the abilities. Old cards are allowed, but new cards are encouraged. Here are some of Wizards various types of hybrid designs:

http://gatherer.wizards.com/Handlers/Image.ashx?multiverseid=179543&type=card
http://gatherer.wizards.com/Handlers/Image.ashx?multiverseid=265418&type=card
http://gatherer.wizards.com/Handlers/Image.ashx?multiverseid=413757&type=card

Hybrid mana is just such a cool idea, I wanted to get people to make a bunch of designs. In addition, I often see hybrid misused on this site, so I'm hoping this contest might help with that. Remember that hybrid cards must encompass a space shared by both colors. Make sure, whatever you do, you stick to the color pie. Consult MaRo's article if needed. Tertiary mechanics don't tend to be on hybrids, but might if the card is cool enough.

Cards will be more likely to win if they are a cool design, a creative use of hybrid mana, or find a niche space in the color pie of the colors. However, keep this to what Wizards might print. Note: a design that uses multiple types of hybrids isn't likely to win, as those won't be printed since they tend to be confusing, but a very creative use could have a shot, and MIGHT even be more likely to win for the creativity if it's designed well and creatively.

New Rules:
Limit of 2 submissions
5/24 is the deadline.


Also, @Stormtide was absolutely right, hybrid mana is difficult to execute properly. Don't rush!


________________________________________PRIZES________________________________________
1st-3rd and honorable mentions will have their submissions favorited.

1st: 1 favorite of his or her choice (at my discretion), and a token of them in this set - http://mtgcardsmith.com/user/Faiths_Guide/sets/5502

Some of you may not have been informed (or noticed), but I favorite only the cards that have
won contests I've (co)hosted, this makes "Faiths_Guide Faves" very rare... I do make
supplemental faves with my @jd_artwork account though.
