Switch the power and toughness of target creature you control with the power and toughness of another target creature until end of turn.


What do you think?
Seems complicated with +1/+1 and -1/-1 counters. Is it permanent or until end of turn?
Ugh... Until end of turn. I forgot to tack it on.

The card looks fun, but it would have a lot of rules issues. It could be done, but I'm pretty sure the reminder text would be longer than the Aeneid. So no.

I guess I'm not sure what's difficult about it...

I attack a 4/4 into your 1/1, you play the card, then you have a 4/4 and I have a 1/1. Seems pretty simple, no? 
If you want to use the term "switch", then I think it would only take a minor addition to the rule about switching power and toughness to work. Then it would be a p/t altering effect that's applied after all other p/t altering effects (like switching a single creature's power and toughness). If done this way, it would have a strange aftereffect. Borrowing the 4/4 vs 1/1 scenario...in order for the now-altered 1/1 attacker to benefit from a Giant Growth, the other (blocking?) creature would need to be the target of the Giant Growth instead. Wicked Weird...

That part makes sense, but Giant Growth, +1/+1 counters, Dark Favor, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, and on the flip side, Dismember, -1/-1 counters, Dead Weight, and Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite!

Just look into rules questions concerning Riptide Mangler, it will be about twice as complicated as that...
