Jovial Benefactor :2::b::g:
Creature - Human Rogue
When Jovial Benefactor enters the battlefield, you may put a +1/+1 counter on another target creature you control.
Sacrifice a creature with a +1/+1 counter on it: Put two +1/+1 counters on Jovial Benefactor.
"My dear boy, what good's an investment if you can't cash out?"
2/2

This card is inspired by Slughorn from Harry Potter, who I think is a good example of a B/G character who isn't all death-rot-plants-circle-of-life-bollocks

I don't know if it should be :2::b::g: or :1::b::g: with :1: to activate its ability.

I think it should be , but distribute TWO +1/+1 counters among other creatures you control.

Also, in the art, I'm picturing a fat guy in a top hat giving coins to a small boy

I think Slughorn is UB, though. 1) he is a teacher (and a tutor :V) 2) he manipulates his network of influence, and manipulation and influence are blue 3) he is a big time liar 4) he is capable of memory-manipulation and transmutation.

The card is gold. Worthy of nomination.

I had a thought that I could have it ETB with +1/+1 counters on it and have an ability to move them onto other creatures in addition to the sac ability, but that'd be a lot harder to balance and significantly more complex.

Is the flavor here supposed to be a legitimate benefactor, or a predatory loan shark who only appears to be affable? Either way, I like the card itself, but I always appreciate seeing black-flavored cards that aren't inherently evil.

You know that irritating thing people do where they answer 'or' questions with 'yes'

If you want to be loved like your card, you need to act like your card. You need to start sacrificing people and eating them, or you're going to be single forever.
