Is this supposed to be written in doge-speak? If not it makes zero sense. 
Eruner Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2014
doge-speak makes no sense with this card. If you haven't seen anime "Claymore", then you should at least know how to play Magic the Gathering and read abilities in "(" and ")".
It's fan card of main character, and I believe that it makes sense and it's quite accurate description. However, I've chosen unusual way of description in MtG rules, which may confuse keen MtG fans. But still, this card is playable.

The wording makes absolutely no sense. 

"She calms down and gains control of her" isn't even proper English, let alone proper Magic terminology. It's not "unusual", it's just wrong. 

You put abilities where explanation text should go. So, as the card stands now, her first ability does nothing. 

According to Magic rules, this card is basically just a 5/5 for 5 mana. Her abilities need to be reworded and have less flavor in the ability text.

then what should be Rule text according to you?

Clare, the Claymore
w/b w/b w/b w/b w/b
Legendary Creature — Human Soldier
WB: Clare, the Claymore gains +1/+1 and first strike until end of turn. 
WB, Untap: The next time Clare would be dealt combat damage, prevent that damage and put a +1/+1 counter on it.

and now change rule text to non-MtG text. Imagine that you are a writer and write same abilities without using MtG terminology.
clokverkorange Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2014
No, because then there's no point in talking about the card. 
Eruner Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2014
Then stop lecturing me when you are unable to convert MtG rule text into non-MtG one. You clearly haven't seen anime and have no experience in writing stories. 
Obviously, I didn't want correct MtG wording like "deals one damage to target creature" but the more epic like "archer fires an arrow and hits target creature (1 dmg)" with the same meaning. If my english wasn't proper, as you claim, then fine, show me proof/example of how it should have been written. But in my way.

And the second ability is: Untap: Clare, the Claymore gains absorb 1 until end of turn.

What do these abilities mean?
Is this MAGIC?
This follows none of the keywords or format, and grammar is a bit off ( and gains control of her?).
Art is bananas cool and flavor is exquisite though. Reformat it to MTG wording and I would play it in a self-craft deck.
WB, Remove X damage from @LEGENDAMEHERE: @LEGENDNAMEHERE gains Bushido X and first stike until end of turn.
UNTAP: @LEGENDNAMEHERE gains shroud until end of turn. (Activate this ability only if @LEGENDNAMEHERE is tapped and attacking.)

This card does not follow common MtG wording and rules by purpose.
However, you need knowledge of the "Claymore" anime to understand why and what I described on this card.

And, btw, this is "Fan Card", and I mixed MtG wording with regular language :-)
