Quote from Marek14 »See, this is the problem. You simply throw away nonsense too quickly. You do not recognize that nonsense has a time-tested place in game design.
Quote from Teysa_Karlov »Fun little rule for you:
If the creature being removed costs less than the removal, your creature is not dying to removal, the removal is dying to the creature.
If your opponent wants to Lightning Strike or Anger of the Gods or Bile Blight him away, cool. Your deck has limited removal, and the resources required for this card are so little that you gain advantage by making them waste removal on a cheap creature.

Quote from Imovefasteronmyown »At first I thought cool a decent bolster target but after reading his ability it's not oh well limited card for sure and a decent late pick in draft I guess. The fact that it's an uncommon taking up a slot makes me sad though.
Quote from arruckus »Some things in standard that make use of the downside.
That said, a 4/1 for 2 is good, if people aren't playing anything like those cards, I want to play this.
