Quote from LucidVision »3/2 menace is fine stats, but as a body independent of an ability, that's closer to 2 mana worth of value than 3 mana.
Quote from Salmo »
Im saying that getting stuck at 3 mana because of it is awful and is not a floor I want to give my control decks for a card that is best in those decks when Im ahead.
Quote from sunshinesoldier »I think the biggest strike against this card is when the card you reveal with its trigger is the spell you need (e.g removal, wrath, even cheap burn). Often times you want the card more than the pts. of damage you'll get from them binning it. It isn't the lands I worry about, it's the occasional time you'll lose a key spell and instead just get a negligible amount of damage. This card is incredibly fun though and I think it helps more often than it hurts you so definitely worth testing.
Quote from Sliver Lord »
Seems good enough to test at least, probably going to push out flip Chandra for good.
Quote from cuttups »I might not be comprehending the argument fully but isn't there just as much a chance that the land could be the card you draw normally and not be the card you reveal? You still get a normal draw? Also, isn't there a chance there are two lands in a row? Also, who cares, draw cards all day erry day?
Quote from wtwlf123 »This is a 3/2 menace for 2R that will occasionally deal some extra direct damage. What happens to the top of your library isn't part of a logical evaluation of the card.
Quote from wtwlf123 »
Also, I think this is a good cube creature. It doesn't "hard-lock" you out of additional resources like Countryside Crusher might, but it limits your drawn lands ...which is a net positive in aggro. After that, you're either getting free reach or card advantage. All of the outcomes are positive for aggressive shells.
Quote from hardb0dy »I'm 100% buying in on this guy. This is an amazing card on so many levels.
