@Mahx: shouldn't it be a Demon and a Faerie?

I like how in the text version its a "Fearie". I know that's just a typo, but I actually like it better that way.

No, the demonfairy is a sub-race of faerie that are reffered to as "demon-faries" because of their dark powers and hostile nature, as well as their slightly demonic apearance (if you count out the fact that all faeries on Lorwin have horns either way).
They are not demons at all, though they are just as powerfull. They are said to be able to grant any wish, but not unless you pay the price... But it's still a bit cheaper than bargaining with a demon. Unless of course you piss it off and get yourself killed...
To bad I can't add a description in the poll.

No, Fearie is not a typo. It is how the word "fairy" was originally written. The new spelling "fairy" has come later probably because it is easier to pronounce or something, idk.
Ooops! I didn't realize that was what you meant... English isn't my first language, so i sometimes mess up the order of a and e in some words... Pretty much because it is never the same and english doesn't make any sense to begin with
Well, the render is correct, so I won't change the text verion for now...

@Mahx: You're not the first to struggle with the inconsistencies of the English language, and you certainly won't be the last. The problem has its roots way back in the Norman Conquest. Since that time, English has become the linguistic equivalent of The Borg:

Just out of curiosity, what is your native language?

The +1/+1 counter text should be i line with the starting point. So "put" and "creature" should be under each other. Also I would nealy always choose to draw a card.
If you make it so you change "Draw a card" to "Create a 1/1 white Human Soldier creature token". that way it will be more situational on what to choose.
If you do that, you should make it cost Green mana symbolWhite mana symbol instead.

Thought I would throw something over here.

My Entry

Some gimmicky Simic +1/+1 counter shenanigans with weird tokens.

Flavor is that he harvests mutated bodies to research (card draw), creation of more mutants, or he just throws it on himself.

@BurningCreator: Welcome aboard! I don't see any wording issues, and the card looks pretty well-balanced to me - though do be aware that the text version is missing the P/T from the render.
