Energize: Untap this creature.

Well it's not a new idea-MTG had a mechanic where cards with activated abilities had to untap to use them, instead of tapping. For some reason this idea didn't last long(I think only one block).

Imagine the combat tricks you could do with this keyword.

Ideas?

The word, minus the mechanic, might also be useful as simply the opposite of 'Exhaust.' Untapping a card could simply be called Energizing it. And the untap phase could be the energize phase.

I think right now they are using the word 'ready.'

Ah. I figured they were using a keyword for it already, but it was late and the alcohol was running through my veins :P
