Quote from Blinking Spirit »Farewell! and if a truer theory's thine,
Impart it candidly; if not, use mine.

Quote from Mockingbird »What I'm more interested in is that it's a blue mana rock.
Yeah, Narset, Parter of Veils is going to be huge thorn for this card, but Narset also hasn't stopped Hydroid Krasis. Honestly, I'll have to see what Planeswalker removal looks like post rotation because playing around Narset may not be that big of a setback if players figure out how to navigate her and Wizards gives us decent tools to do so.
Quote from Xcric »this card...
its not for me. i'm not sure who its for, but its definitely not for me.
its a 3 drop mana rock that taps for blue. neat, but thats not enough to justify the cost. okay...
so i can put counters on it for 2u? but to get to the 12 needed for it to go off i need to dump 36 mana into it... or wait 12 turns. you could use excess mana to dump counters onto it, thats cool i guess... but it also exiles itself. if you've gone infinite you're usually winning already and don't need to dump mana into this. its also in a color that has access to this type of effect in abundance. oh, and it exiles itself so you can't even recur it. even if you have enough excess mana to dump 2 counters on it (6 mana for those counting) that will still take what, 4 turns to go off? its just so slow. sure you can build a deck to dump counters onto it... but then you're building your deck to try and turn something that's hot garbage into being barely playable.
bad rare thats hiding behind word soup to try and seem good is really just bad.
flavor home run at least.
Quote from Erix »I would have expected it to be worded more like:
"When the twelfth hour counter is put on midnight clock exile Midnight Clock, if you do ..."
As it is worded, at least if you have an artifact sac outlet you can sac it in response to the ability to shuffle it in with everything else.
