Who doesn't love modal spells? I certainly do! They're a very straightforward way to add some flexibility to a deck without compromising on power. We now have Charms for every monocolor, pair, shard, and wedge, and Commands for every monocolor and allied pair - that's a lot of options!

One thing we haven't seen much of so far, though, is the modal principle applied to other kinds of card. So your goal this week is as follows: Design a permanent card with a modal ability that is not an enters-the-battlefield trigger. It can be activated, triggered, even static if you can find a way to make that work - but it must be attached to an artifact, creature, enchantment, planeswalker, or land.

Please remember: You're not allowed to vote for yourselves. For further information please look at the CotW Rules.

I believe the first letter is missing in the card name of @Mocandragon5's entry.
