    Zara, something or other
    When she attacks, look at defending players hand and choose a creature card. Put that card into play tapped and attacking that player or planeswalker. Return that creature to owners hand at end of turn.

    my hope is sterling grove or false prophet, but its probably the seb cuombajj witches

    I would love the bathing beauties by seb. I hope they continue to utilize mtgo art - I would love the red elemental/blue elemental, Pyro and hydroblast, elvish spirit guide (bad fit for this product), quirion rangers and several others.

    The problem with these cards is the maintenance of the IP rights. As it stands, a card's uniqueness for deck construction is defined by its English card name. The Godzilla cards had a functional, but cumbersome way to preserve the card name. In order to preserve the reprintability of crossover cards, can they ammend that rule to indicate that cards possessing these names are treated the same way as a foreign card name? If they can't give the promise of reprint potential - this is an extremely dangerous precedent.

    2x arctic merfolk + Kefnet's Monument or sapphire medallion - I just broke legacy Smile - honestly, there are only about 8 cards with kicker before this set that are worth playing - most of them are limited cards that are designed to smooth out mana curves. In order for this card to be relevant in any format we need to see a lot more cards like thieving skydiver.

    It is too bad that one of our commanders wasn't a kicker payoff commander - the timeline for another opportunity like that is at least 2022

    I like it! I think it's got to be one of the better 3-mana rocks in EDH.

    Baseline is darksteel ingot and the kicked version is a better gilded lotus - I think this may just be the first 3 drop rock for most commander decks (even over commander's sphere}

    Its really too bad they didn't have a quintessential party and just a blank outline around the rogue. If you are gonna give us unhinged don't half-donkey it.

    Very elegant design on a card that probably will see 0 play outside limited. The only potential that I see on this card comes from a kicker matters archetype - eg kicker clover? Everytime you pay a kicker cost, double the kicker effect. If we don't see a good payoff for kicker, neither version of the card would be better than the average card power of just drawing. (You could draw a land a 1/3 of the time; but you could also draw a questing beast - would you gamble that on a 5/5 for 5 guarantee)

    The cute combo of great henge and this is exactly that, cute. 75% of the time great henge is win anyways - and thus makes that interaction trivial.

    I would hate to get such a boring card as my preview card. I think i would rather have a 2/2 for 2 over this in limited. In a world of bears with upside - couldn't they have made this a bear? You would think they would give cats a bit of love after the dog showcase in m21 lol.

    Look at the top X cards of your library, where X is 3 plus the number of creatures in your party. Put three cards from among them to your hand, and put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.

    wow... they did remember Titans' Nest exist right? (it would create Dig Through Time but one card more with a full party)

    but really at worst just draw 3 and not near as powerful as dig with delve missing

    If you are spending 4 mana to set up an efficient card draw turn 5 or later you are doing something wrong. If titans nest did something relevant on its own - maybe but two bad cards that make an okay effect is not going to impact any format.

    I feel like the extra creature types would be able to fit on the creature type line rather than it being an ability.

    Because it is not a "this card" does that mean he is only a human in any zone besides the battlefield. Could be an intended restriction for the black reanimate spells where type counts.

    I really wish the french name translated to "Perturbing Jwar" or "Jwar Perturbation". Disturbing sounds like Nys Dal is coming to Jwar Isle, knocking on the wall, "Hi, can you tell me where the roil is?". Perturbing is such a more forceful word, like ringing the door bell 15 times, until the denizens of Jwar are forced to answer "Hello, have you heard of Heliod? We have these scrolls showing you his love for you and how if you don't believe you will go straight to the underworld. And I'm talking about Phylias, not Ilysia. Can we count on seeing you at temple this Sunday?"
