Inspired by Inanimate's game of the same name here. (Dead link, left here for posterity.)

How to Play:
1. A player chooses two MTG cards at random (use Gatherer's or magicccards's random function.)
2. The next player must design a card that combines the two cards flavorfully and mechanically and picks two new cards of his own. (If possible, please link the cards for convenience.)
3. The next player rates the above cards and repeats step 2.

Example :

Bob wrote:
Grizzly Bears+Mtenda Lion =
Mtenda Bear 1 mana symbolGreen mana symbol
Creature - Bear Uncommon
Whenever ~ attacks, defending player may pay Blue mana symbol. If that player does, prevent all combat damage that would be dealt by ~ this turn.
3/3

Next : Twiddle + Piracy Charm

Ben wrote:
Up : Great card. 10/10.
Twiddle + Piracy Charm =
Twiddle Charm Blue mana symbol
Instant Common
Choose one : You may tap or untap target creature, target player discards a card, or target creature gains nonbasic landwalk.
Next : (Rinse and repeat)

First two cards : Nightmare and Myr Landshaper

Nightmare Myr: That ability looks weird on an Artifact creature, and anything that uses halves is usually messy, esp. on P/T. Eh, it's okay, but Nightmare is usually much more profitous.

Up: Um...no. Cultivate minus Rampant Growth says that tutoring a basic land costs 1 mana symbol. Of course, you're allowing any land, even nonbasic ones. So let's say that costs Green mana symbol. In that case, you're proposing that we can pass off a Cancel for Blue mana symbol. Even Counterspell doesn't do that, and it's ridiculously overpowered. 3/10

Boreal Aegis 3 mana symbolWhite mana symbolWhite mana symbol

Boreal Aegis sounds like a Wall. Or equipment. Anyways, it's fairly powerful, but unfortunately, like many other Snow cards, it's, well, insular. Also, it's not a Snow Angel D:

lol, Phelddagrif Stick out your tongue (didn't even knew those existed)
The card is decent, but the Red mana symbol: Viashivan Phelddagrif gets +2/+0 until end of turn. is a very strong ability. Especially in combination with flying it could mean the end of your opponent in 2 turns if you just spent 5 Red mana symbol on his ability he would already become 15/5 with flying.
If I understand it correctly, you were trying to compensate this by giving the opponent the elephant. But I still think the elephant would not be a good compensation for a 15/5 Phelddagriff of death. I give it a 6.5/10

When I was busy creating a mixture of those cards, I created two versions, but I couldn't choose which one I would post. So here are two cards. I'm sorry for any inconvience that this might cause.

Card 1:

Artifact Blue mana symbol
Lamp of Wonders enters the battlefield tapped.

Tap symbol: Add Blue mana symbol to your mana pool and put a Wonder counter on Lamp of Wonders.

At the beginning of your upkeep, if Lamp of Wonders has five or more wonder counters on it, flip Lamp of Wonders

Colorshift!!!

notes
On the first card, I was doubting wether I would do 3 mana symbolRed mana symbolRed mana symbol: flip Lamp of Wonders or do the counters stuff. I chose the last one because, at the time of creation (now), I find the counters more interesting than the mana cost.

Why five counters, because the CMC of fire elemental was 5. And it just felt right at the time of creation.

Magmatic Havoc looks pretty sweet for his mana cost, although his downside can be an upside. Think about it, you've got an 8/8 creature that can block anything. Still, I think it's a fair card, 9/10

Unstoppable Force looks more similar to the two cards than the first entry, but it seems overpowered to me, even with the upkeep cost. The indestructible and the creature removal makes it too much for me to think it's fair. It does fit the challenge though. 7/10

I can see the combination of Millstone an Rakdos Pit dragon, and I think you did a good job on this one. the wording of the first ability would be something like: "Whenever this creature deals combat damage to a player, instead of recieving damage, that player puts the top X cards of his library into his graveyard were X is equal to ~ power."
You did intimidate instead of flying, because intimidate is more black than flying. you made it cost only one black because intimidate states that it can only be blocked by artefact creatures and creatures that share it's color with it. So it can be blocked only by artefact creatures, black creatures and blue creatures.
The discard effect, is very powerfull. Discard effect would be to strong in combination with intimidate, be it not for the first ability. 8/10.

Nightsoil Elemental:
Mechanic: 9/10 - This seems like a good incorporation of Night Soil's token production into Cockatrice's original premise.
Flavor: 7/10 - It works, I'm just not sure how the creature type relates to the original cards.
Total: 8/10

Brass Gnat + Goblin Matron =

When Gnatron enters the battlefield, you may search your library for an insect card, reveal it and put it into your hand. If you do, shuffle your library.

Battleflight Vampire:
Mechanics: 9/10. You integrated Battleflight Eagle's bonus into Vampire Warlord's sacrifice ability nicely.
Flavor: 9/10. Can't see anything wrong here.
