Advisor tribal mill Relentless Rats variant. Even with all of the craziness in this set, I think this is the weirdest card spoiled yet.
EDIT: Hold on, nickname idea:
The type was likely chosen specifically to be non-tribal, just like crested sunmare. As it is, it's almost as if it required copies of itself with some slight room for other cards. Imagine this in a tribe that is actually supported, like merfolk...
Okay, I know this is totally silly but I kind of want to build this with a huge control element - stall the game until I get to 8 mana and then play 4x in one turn (run maybe 10 total to facilitate this). Play 4, tap them all on your end step. Untap, play 4 more (I don't know how) and win with epic mill. Just for the lolz.
Yeah, the playtest name was almost certainly "Relentless 'Crats".
And I don't think this is a Sunmare 'we don't care about the creature type', and more focusing on a creature type that predominantly only shows up on Ravnica. Notably, Teysa has always been an Advisor.
As for the card itself, it has a nice payoff for hitting critical mass, which likely explains why the small mill has a mana cost.
Honestly, I'm a little curious as to how viable a strategy built around them could be for draft or even sealed. If you can snag 4 in Draft, you are just ridiculous, I would think.
I am tempted to make a standard deck with these for the lulz xD.
And why did WotC not give them defender -.-..... MISSED OPPORTUNITY. One of the few times I WISH a creature had defender (if this had defender, this would be what Arcades Decks need to push in a win)
EDIT: This... may just end up as a combo in COmmander... Combine this with Thrumming Stone... you have the protection of U counters, the ease of tutoring artifacts in U, and these guys get around summoning sickness with their second ability. The potential is... kind of hilarious
I am curious to see how this will stack up with Thrumming-Rats style decks or Thrumming-Shadowborn Apostle decks. Personally I would be tempted to add Paradox Engine for lulz. Reveal a dude, in response to cast, tap all my dudes, cast the petitioner, untap all my dudes, rinse and repeat
