Let's Have Some YMtC Fun: Game of the Year Edition

Anyone else remember this game? Why did nobody ever bring it back?

This is how it works. I post a card, and the next player has to make a card whose name shares a word with the name of the previous card. The name doesn't have to have the same length, the card doesn't have to be of the same colour or type or CMC, its name just has to share a word with the name of the previous card. It doesn't have to be the exact same word (for example, if the previous card was named Great Calamity, you could make a card named Calamitous Failure) but don't be stupid about it. One-word names, and linking words like 'of' and 'the', are obviously discouraged

Not the most elegant explanation, but I'm not exactly feeling sharp at the moment, so let's just get to it.

Enormous Growth
Instant
Put three +1/+1 counters on target creature.


Giant Growth
Enchantment - Aura
Enchant Giant Creature
At the beginning of your upkeep, put 3 +1/+1 counters on enchanted creature.

ITS FUNNY BECAUSE GIANT GROWTH IS ACTUALLY A CARD.
A little bit of courage is the real magic.
Don't you dare do this to me.

Pit-Dweller Giant
Creature- Giant
Sacrifice a Swamp: Destroy target creature with power 2 or less that's attacking you. Activate this ability only once each turn and only if Pit-Dweller Giant is tapped.

4/4

'Pit' and 'Dweller' count as two different words in this case. 
Bottomless Pit
Instant
Destroy target creature without flying.
It's funny how the ground can just drop out from under you like that.
A little bit of courage is the real magic.
Pit Fighter
Creature - Human Barbarian

3/2

Silvercore, Bane of Nxaztrithicke 
Legendary Artifact
When Silvercore, Bane of Nxaztrithicke enters the battlefield, exile all permanents named Nxaztrithicke Jazal, then search each opponent's graveyard, hand, and library for any number of cards named Nxaztrithicke Jazal and exile them. Put a charge counter on Silvercore for each permanent and/or card exiled this way.
: Draw a card for each charge counter on Silvercore.

I think this balances Nxaztrithicke Jazal pretty well.
