    When I first saw this I thought it was pretty meh, but just realized it might be pretty decent in token decks. You could sacrifice eldrazi drones, for example, to tutor and cast mono-colored creatures from your deck, or use mono-colored token creatures to get 2-colored creatures. The fact that you have to cast the creature you tutor means it'll never be as good as cards like Birthing Pod but still.

    This reminds me of one of my favorite jank cards Eye of the Storm. This is slower, but might be more practical, especially since your opponents cant take advantage of it.

    Infinite tokens and life with Presence of Gond and any soul sister.
    Edit: well technically not infinite, but as much as you like

    Quote from Chalsis »
    Glacian was latent planeswalker.

    He was greatest, most brilliant artificer of the Thran, the genius of his time.

    With Rebbec, he shut Yawgmoth and Phyrexia out of Dominaria for 9,000 years.

    His soul dwells in the Mightstone and Weakstone that became Urza's eyes.

    It's implied that Urza's Planeswalker's spark might actually be Glacian's.

    And this is his card?


    I'm absolutely with you, but to play devil's advocate, the fact that this is a creature card and not a planeswalker card implies this is before his spark ignited (duh), so maybe that's why it's not that powerful? But I'm also not 100% familiar with the story so...

    Just in case there are other people like me who don't know Natural Order by heart :|

    I agree with the majority sentiment. I hate it.

    But also... are we maybe overreacting a little bit? How often will these cards actually come up? It might annoy me if I sat down to play commander and someone had a commander deck with one of these cards, but realistically, how often will that even happen?

    Mostly, I just hope WotC doesn't do more of stuff like this, but if they do this and nothing else... it's w/e
    Also, just in case it needs to be said, don't let the hatred directed towards this prohibit your enjoyment of it if you like the cards. If you like it, you like it, have your fun. Hopefully, though, even if you like this particular incarnation, you can understand why this is an undesirable precedent.

    This couldn't give +3/+3? Because I'm not sure it'd be good even if it did.
    I guess it's decent in limited, though.

    I love the art on this one.

    The over all art direction of this set is kind of disappointing, but this is good. Also, pretty decent card. I could see myself putting this in some of my EDH decks.

    What a badly designed card.

    But my criticism doesn't matter because I'm clearly not smart enough to understand. I, too, must bow to the incomprehensible brilliance of this card.

    (For real though, what you did here, I see it.)

    I like the concept. I have some questions.
    Have you tried playing this? If yes, what formats? How did those games go?

    My guttural response is that I feel mono-green decks and decks that produce a lot of colorless mana might get the short end of the stick, unless there are plenty of black or red decks to piggy back off of. Could there be like a "3: Target opponent takes a drink"? It would be inefficient, but it would give green, colorless, and WU decks a way to make other people drink.

    Inkwell Leviathan was bad the first time they reprinted it. Why do they keep doing this.

    Replace draw with X seems like an under-explored design space, and I certainly could see myself using this card in some of my decks.

    Not really a criticism, but using this card against someone struggling with card advantage would probably be a slap to their face. Kind of like a "I'm drawing so many cards, I rather Scry 3!"

    Makes me wonder what else could be done with a "the next time you would draw a card, do x instead" type effect. The only thing about this that makes me not want to use it is the situation where I Scry 3 and realize the top card was exactly what I was hoping to draw.

    Looks like they haven't kicked out The Professor yet...

    Yea... Watching his most recent video is a stark contrast to the video's where he interviewed people(or just person? I can't remember) from WotC. I admire his integrity though.

    It's been increasingly difficulty, at least for me, to get excited for new sets because of stuff like this. Although I think it has more to do with the frequency of products being released and less with price points (although I am not a fan of the price either).

    Without even seeing the spoilers, I'd feel this set will probably be something I would get excited about under more traditional circumstances.

    Would it be fair to say spoilers coming late seems indicative that they're not confident in the contents of the set? Like, raise the hype RIGHT before release so people buy it before they have time to take it in and realize it's bad?
