I'm the GW swarm theme, but it's too late for dibs on convoke eh I'll try to have something up tomorrow.

Quote from clan_iraqI'm calling it right now- worst rare in the set. Even good limited players will find better bombs at common and uncommon no sweat. Worst. Episode. Ever.
Quote from clan_iraqI really do predict this to be our worst rare in set award winner. I'd be happier opening a jar of eyeballs, so I think anything worse is highly unlikely. This card wont just have zero constructed potential, but not be significantly better than a mass of ghouls in a draft.
One of your favorite mechanics from the past
Quote from k-radQuote from Sir AureusThere's a reason that Ixidron says "nontoken".Because a Saproling being flipped into a pro player is super tech?
