Here's this little guy's backstory.
Plane: Lorwyn/Shadowmoor
The plan moves along perfectly. The few meddling slugs that have gotten in my way were quickly disposed of by my minion, Kraj. All of the multiverse now moves to my whim, for the planeswalkers are but pawns in my master plan. They think I am the weak servant. My froggy suit fooled them easily. As the Darksteel Reactor counts down, Even those who were my greatest foes cannot stop me now. Today I take over this pathetic little plane, tomorrow, the entire multiverse!!

Don't underestimate an Ouphe in a frog suit.

Cute little ouphe! I love these guys, and the Bairn here, along with Kitchen Finks, are probably the two most famous.

@Diachronos Speaking of planeswalkers, how about Ral Zarek?? Potential infinite-turn combo right here:

Turn 1: Lay down Gilder and Ral. Ral taps Gilder and untaps a land (or something else you need). Ral is now at 5 loyalty counters. Gilder untaps and doubles Ral's loyalty counters to 10.
Turn 2: Unleash Ral's -7 ultimate (flip 5 coins -- each heads = extra turn!).

On all of your extra turns (unless you somehow got all tails), you rinse and repeat stacking loyalty and extra turns when you can spare the counters. All you need is some better-than-awful luck and mana for Gilder's ability cost (-1 if you keep having Ral untap land). Of course there may be some gaping hole in this plan, but for now, I think I'm gonna go find some of these Gilders and see how a deck fares with them and Ral.

Overall: 5/5
Art: 10/5
Ability: 20/5
Foil: 40/5

No really, this card has the best foil ever. Under the right lighting angle, this trinkets really do glow in the night.

Can you imagine how insane this would have been back during Urza's in an Enchantress deck? This card has amazing synergy with its entire disruption package: Parallax Tide (Oh look, you'll never have any lands in play, ever), Parallax Wave (Creatures? Hah...no), Smokestack (annnnnd, sack your whole board), Tanglewire (tap everything. have fun with that), Opposition (What? I can use your untap ability until the end of time? Cool. And while I'm at it, tap everything) ... I mean, probably completely unnecessary win-more, but still. It fits in perfectly, and is in the right colors, and one thing enchantress was never short on was obscene amounts of mana.

Paradise Mantle will do the trick.

@NobleWhiteGangsta You are, in the game, essentially considered a Planeswalker. The Planeswalker permanents are basically like other players with certain spells they can play, that you have temporary gained an alliance with, hence the 'loyalty' counters. There are certain auras that allow you to {enchant player}. This being said, I would say that you could not double poison counters. Although I did have the same hopes at first, haha.

This would work well with Shape of the wiitigo. Just put it right on this guy. He would immediately turn into a 7/9. Then each turn you attack with him. Next turn, he gets another +1/+1 for attacking, and after attacking, pay to untap him and double it for the next turn.

If the turn when you play the wiitigo is called turn 1, it would look like this:

Turn 1: Shape of the wiitigo makes him 7/9. Attack.
Turn 2: +1/+1 for attacking makes him 13/15. Untap. Attack. Play his ability to double it and make it 26/30.
Turn 3: +1/+1 for attacking makes him 27/31. Untap. Attack. Ability again to make him 54/62.
Rinse and repeat if they are still alive.

For more fun, find a way to give him trample.

I'd untap that!

This guy has synergy with the two most over-linked cards ever: Doubling Season and Training Grounds.

I use all three in my Simic deck, along with Graft creatures and Evolution Vat.
The Vat can be used to add counters to any creature you want them on,
or to tap Bairn if you have no better way.

Psionic Gift is also hilarious on him, especially if Training Grounds is out-
One G or U to ping for one and double the counters on something,
as many times as you care to pay for it.

And while he may not be my favorite foil ever (that's Hallowed Fountain),
he is certainly one of the best.

With the Rise of the Eldrazi set out, you can essentially do his ability an infinite number of times if you have a Training Grounds out and Paradise Mantle on him. Tap him for {(G/U)}, use it to untap him, and keep doing it until you're satisfied.

I can see him being extremely useful for Planeswalker users. All but four of them (Ajani Vengeant, Nissa Revane, and both versions of Jace, but their abilities are so good that it's worth having to wait a bit longer) would be able to use their best ability on the turn they were dropped, and that's if you only used one!
