Imperial Mask, nyah nyah :p

EDIT: The point with Imperial Mask is that the Engine's ability is NOT OPTIONAL. If your opponent casts the engine while you have a Mask out, they are forced to target themselves.

Wow, yeah, even one of these floating amidst 60 cards can turn a deck with infect as a back up plan to a deck that kills with infect on the regular. Did for me. But the real fun isn't the poison counters. It's -1/-1 counters to your oppoents creatures, and the +1/+1 counters for yours (ala steel overseers and the like).

The turn after I drop this I nearly always kill almost all of my opponent's creatures (and turn the rest into mush), and my 4/4 myrs (for example from a galvanizer and two turns with a steel overseer on the board) suddenly become 7/7 MYRS!!!, then I drop another Galvanizer and a Tempered Steel and my opponents proceed to fold. Good times.

Now with the new blood thirst key word in m12 this is even more brutal. This thing massacres the opponets whole side basicly in two turns and your blood thirst creatures just got two more +1/+1 counters. DEFINITELY worth 6 mana. 5/5

Im thinking of combining Unwinding Clock with Contagion Engine, and using Sol Ring and artifact lands so that every upkeep i can re-tap for mana and double proliferate even on opponents TURNS!!!!!

stuff like Imperial mask won't save you from gain two new poison counters each turn. It doesn't target nobody.
Combos with levelers, bloodthrist blood suckers, poison decks, Curse of Stalked Prey decks...
Good enough and nor even a little bit overpowered.
