I am both selfish and instinctive. I value growth and community, as long as they favour my own objectives; I enjoy nature, and I particularly enjoy watching parts of nature die. At best, I am resilient and tenacious; at worst, I'm uncontrollable and destructive.
Oh, but wait, there were multiple answers that fit my thoughts to some questions. What colors did they say I was?

Creature - Demon
At the beginning of your upkeep, tap the paired creature or tap ~.
Halogen Artifact Creature - AtomAs long as ~ is paired, it gets -1/-1 and the creature it's paired with gets +1/+1.1/3
As I graded these, I began to remember why I don't host more contests.
Harmonist of Union Creature - Spirit Priest SoulbondImprint- If the creature ~ is paired with would leave the battlefield, exile it instead. ~ and the creature it's paired with have all abilities of creatures exiled by it.She sings a chord joining lives and souls, waiting only as each new member of the collective wanders in one by one. 2/2
Mimeomancer Creature -- Human Wizard Soulbond As long as Mimeomancer is paired with another creature, it is a copy of that creature.I could never be myself. You see, there is no me. I do not exist. There used to be a me, but I had it surgically removed. 1/1 Hooray for fun Clone variants.
Devoted Shaman Creature - Human ShamanSoulbondAs long as Devoted Shaman is pairedwith another creature, each of thosecreatures has ": Creatures paired with thisget +0/+3 until end of turn" and ": Creatures paired with this get +3/+0 until end of turn"2/2
Blood Mistress - Creature - VampireSoulbond, Lifelink, FlyingAs long as ~ is paired with another creature, ~ gets +2/+2 and has "At the beginning of your upkeep, sacrifice the creature paired with ~ and put a +1/+1 counter on ~."3/3
I want to Soulbond two Mimeomancers together.So, there are no colourless/artifact soulbond creatures. I can understand why but, in a way, skimming through the Soulbond creatures that they did print, this is kinda sad.Dusty Puppet Artifact: This artifact becomes a 1/1 colourless creature with Soulbond, and "As long as ~ is paired with another creature, both creatures have : Draw a card" until end of turn."To feel life - even if only for a moment - the warmth, the fear, the sadness, and the beauty that come with it are worth more than any mortal can know.""What does man know of dreams? The truest dreams come from those that yearn for cognizance."
Peaceful Harmony - Tribal Enchantment - SpiritSoulbond~ can Soulbond as though it were a creature.The creature paired with ~ is indestructible, has protection from everything, and cannot attack.
Elvish Chieftain Creature - Elf Druid WarriorSoulbondAs long as you control 4 or more paired creatures, paired creatures you control get +3/+3 and have trample.2/2

Chainbreaker Demon Creature - DemonTrampleSoulbondAt the beginning of your upkeep, sacrifice ~ or a creature paired with it.You rarely see the servant of a demon. At least not alive.7/7
Spirit of the TarmSoulbondCreatures paired with Spirit of the Tarm have "This creature's power is equal to the number of card types among cards in all graveyards and its toughness is equal to that number plus 1."2/1In a cycle alongside Spirit of the Forge, Spirit of the Confidant, Spirit of the Piledriver and Spirit of the Snap.
If you don't mind, I'll use an old card of mine I like. It would require a rewording of the ability from "pair this creature" to "pair this permanent", which is fairly minor.Possessed Blade Artifact - EquipmentSoulbondCARDNAME can only be attached to the creature it is paired with.Equipped creature gets +5/-3 and has first strike and trample.Equip It begins with the blade claiming: "You're my master. I exist to serve you."It ends with the wielder repeating the same thing to the blade.

Cautious Blinkwielder Creature - Human WizardSoulboundWhen Cautious Blinkwielder is paired with another creature, both creatures gain the ability: " , return this creature to it's owner's hand."2/2
Soul of Souls Creature - Spirit AvatarWhen you play Soul of Souls, you may unpair any number of creatures you control.Soulbond.When Soul of Souls enters the battlefield, it may pair with any number of creatures you control.1/1Design SpaceDo you think it should also have "All creatures paired with Soul of Souls have all Pair abilities of creatures paired with it."?I thought of that, but it seems like too much for CMC 5. I believe this creature is viable as-is.I wasn't really buying a lot in that set, I do have a few Soulbond creatures. I'm going to "Gather" some info to see how scary it can be.Soul of Souls maxbondingAssuming you control exactly one of each printed Soulbond creature, here is your Soul of Souls.Soul of Souls Creature - Spirit AvatarWhen you play Soul of Souls, you may unpair any number of creatures you control.Soulbond.When Soul of Souls enters the battlefield, it may pair with any number of creatures you control.Flying, Vigilance, Doublestrike, Trample, Deathtouch, Lifelink, Haste, First Strike, Reach, Hexproof, Protection from ZombiesWhenever this creature deals damage to an opponent, draw a card.: This creature gets +1/+0 until end of turn.: Target player puts the top two cards of his or her library into his or her graveyard.: Untap this creature.: Exile this creature, then return it to the battlefield under your control.8/8Perfectly reasonable as a CMC 5, right?!?
Lost Revenant Creature - Spirit ShadeSwampwalk, soulbondAs long as Lost Revenant is paired with another creature, each of those creatures has ": This creature gets +1/+1 until end of turn."Wandering the marsh, a lost soul ever in need of companionship.1/1

Gavony Housewife Creature -- HumanSoulbond, lifelinkWhen the creature paired with ~ dies, transform ~.1/3//Avenging Widow Creature -- Human BerserkerFirst strike~ attacks each turn if able.3/1these should definitely get flavor text but i used up all my limited flavor-sense on the concept, even these mediocre names took like ten minutes to think of.
Anyway, that's what went through my head when I read your card. Dripping with top-down flavor. The wife loses something precious and goes out on a quest of vengeance to rain blood upon those that killed her precious whatever. Overall, it's not bad. A 1/3 with lifelink for is okay, not anything to really leap out of bed for, but whatever. On the other hand a 3/1 with first strike at is actually pretty decent, even if it did cost you a creature to get there. Overall, I really like the flavor and the card itself is decent.
scratch that.Frenzied Jackal Creature - HoundSoulbound, hasteAt the beginning of your end step, if ~ is not paired, sacrifice it.3/1
Fastbond Arrester Creature - Human SoldierSoulbondWhen ~ etb, you may gain control of target creature. If you do, pair it with ~. You control that creature as long as it is paired with ~.as long as ~ is paired with another creature, those creatures can't attack or block, and their activated abilities can't be activated.2/2
Done...and no more of these for a while, or perhaps ever.
Creature - ElementalSoulbondAs long as ~ is paired with another creature, each of those creatures gets +3/+0 and has trample and haste.At the beginning of the end step, sacrifice ~ and the creature it's paired with.0/1
Frenzied Jackal Creature - HoundSoulbound, hasteAt the beginning of your end step, if ~ is not paired, sacrifice it.3/1
Thank you to all the participants and I hope you'll compete again next time.
A slight issue, given that it creates an infinite loop when it loses "As long as ~ is paired..." upon bocoming a copy because its still paired (see rule 702.92e and the notes following it, specifically the last one).
A slight issue, given that it creates an infinite loop when it loses "As long as ~ is paired..." upon bocoming a copy because its still paired (see rule 702.92e and the notes following it, specifically the last one).Where are you getting this? There's no infinite loop.
Read the section on layers. The copy effect applies at layer 1. True, it goes away after that, but it's already been applied, and none of the later layers deal with copy effects.
Hooray bdsm demon!
