What's your favorite card flavor text? For comedy, lore, or whatever other reason.
Mine is Pyroconvergence: "The Izzet are an equation that turns lunacy into explosions." -Leonos, Azorius Arbiter
I love that one because it simultaneously summarizes the Azorius and the Izzet in one card, as well as being funny.
"He didn't have a word for "home," but he knew it was something to be defended.-Ogre Resister

As a general quote, it's probably Soulblade Djinn: He grants endless wishes, as long as you always wish for a blade.
But the card I actually quote the most is Mind Over Matter: 'As ever,' said Urza, 'we wait.' It's great for delayed start times, slow opponents, and slow-buffering videos.

The little poem on Uthden Troll is ace. It always reminds me of my first days playing MtG, too.

You can't leave out Null Rod.

Canyon Minotaur was the first Magic card I ever read, so it sticks with me to this day.
There are plenty of serious lines that come to mind, but the most chilling might be on Fate Unraveler.

I may have an attachment to rather morbid flavors.

Chief Engineer as a way of describing myself (and my playstyle). "An eye for detail, a mind for numbers, a soul of clockwork."
Nekusar, the Mindrazer for being chillingly awesome.
Pretty much anything Jace says with dry humor makes me laugh.

I rather like Near-Death Experience's "Lands ravaged, cities in ruins, so many lives sacrificed, and yet there was no other word for it but victory."

Counterspell (Tempest) - "It was probably a lousy spell in the first place."
Skeletal Grimace - "And then I realized we all have skeletons on the inside. Why wait until the bodies are dead to control them?"
