The Maro ability is a slang term used by Magic R&D to describe the ability that a creature's power and toughness are equal to the number of cards in its controllers hand. This ability is nicknamed after the first creature to have it: Maro from Mirage. In turn, this card was named after Mark Rosewater, the head designer of Magic R&D.
