While I enjoy nicknames, and the 'make a nickname for everything' podcasts do amuse me, a lot of the times I wish more effort would be put into some of them... :P (Or maybe that's just wanting to put more thought into them myself, who knows.)

I shall think on them, but on Sheer Drop , my initial thought was just 'First step's a doozy!'

I am claiming no originality for this, but BY GOD do I love what someone called the new Duals.

dietl from the MTGSalvation forums called them the Tango Lands.

Because it takes two to tango.

I just find that so perfect, and a lot of fun to say.

(And it sounds more fun than Two-al lands.)

Ok, so the dominator drone whenever I look at it I don't see the arms but see those little things on its back like skinny little arms, so I always see it like it's trying to do a sexy pose. With that in mind...I'm too sexy for my drone.

I feel that Hero's Landfall would be good. This seems more like Hero's Landfill.

Given Omnath is a big green rage guy, he seems like "Hulk" to me.

I wanna call Horribly Awry "Blue Grit"

Mostly because I'm a fan of Westerns and awful "puns."

But I think it's safe to say it'll just be "I think your plans have gone..." in a kinda smarmy voice.

BFZ duals should be <nickname> lands. That is because everyone wants to insert their own nickname and/or because I will forever remember them by the massive argument over what the nickname should be.

I'm less confident than the X-Ring nickname, but for Gideon maybe: "The First Azenger" or "Captain Zendikar"?

Pretty obvious, but Void Winnower is "You can't even", although I personally refer to it as "Voidfriend". It is also hands down my favorite card of this set.

It's gonna be hard to do very many art-based nicknames I think.

Cloud Manta: Cheep Cheep Gone Horribly Wrong
Boiling Earth: Scion-B-Gone
TIghtening Coils: "I fixed the bident!"
Downer of Hope: "Sit Down!" (won SO many game at pre-release by keeping the opponent's giant Eldrazi tapped with this)
Voracious Null: No-Face
Demon's Grasp: AAAAAH Chokeslam!
Skyrider Elf: Solve for X

My suggestions:

Drana, Liberator of Malakir - Peter Pan (is traditionally played by a woman, leads the Lost Boys, flies, and sprinkles friends with Pixie Dust)

Coastal Discovery - She sells spells by the seashore.
Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper - [Dethklok] Awaken Awaken Awaken Awaken [/Dethklok]

and 2-parter
Infuse with the Elements - by your powers combined!
Woodland Wanderer - Captain Planet
