Personally, I like Resist unless there is something else in your game that might need to be resisted.

For purely stat card purposes, abbreviations are fine:
MR
ResistM
Death is light as a feather; duty, heavy as a mountain.

Poof.
i.e. spells that don't work go poof.

Heh..I like that one - "Poof" - the chance that the spell is useless, despite the effort thrown into it.

...maybe you have to roll above the Poof Percentage for it to work.

Squelch is a little too sci-fi-ish anyway.
I think I've settled on "Resistance," which will be shortened to "Resist" on the stat cards.
