    That is, without question, the most absurd sentence I have read in a very, very long time. And I read Naked Lunch recently.

    Just so people have the context:



    My guess is some variation of a treasure token. Maybe, sac it, gain 3 life?

    It'd be narrow but flavorful if Devour was coming back, and these like double counted as sacrifice fodder. But that's a RG mechanic, nowhere close to UG.

    Clue and Treasure tokens were good in any color, hopefully these have some evergreen capabilities and it isn't a dead end keyword.

    Actually, because tezzerret has the treasure knock-off in energy cells Im thinking "Sac this: add a +1/+1 counter [or a loyalty counter] to a thing"

    This is also MTGO, so it looks 50% worse than it actually is (which is still kinda bad)

    I'm just guessing it might be Life, since a Clue leads to knowledge, which is drawing cards in Magic terms. So, Food, as something that nourishes and sustains, I'd guess is Life. Bountiful Harvest, Feed the Clan, Gnaw to the Bone, Hunters' Feast, Taste of Paradise, so the link between food, eating and life gain is precedented. Even though this is not proof per se.

    Maro confirmed they're artifact tokens (which makes sense, given how Oko is designed with artifacts in mind). How artifacts can be food (or vice versa) flavor-wise is beyond me, though. And no, you don't eat the tin cans themselves.

    I'm not sold on food being life gain. +1/+1 counters seem far more like, given how WotC is focused is on creature combat.

    How does Flaxen Intruder work? You can either cast it as creature for or as a sorcery for - is that correct?

    I hate this so god damn much. Thoughts of how it works:
    • Aftermath redux
    • kicker
    • opponent casts the Adventure half, you get something (GG in the mana cost kills this)
    • maybe you cast the Adventure and your opponent gets the creature? Seems bad.


    EDIT: oh wait. It's gonna be "you can cast this while this creature is on the battlefield"

    I'm going to choose to believe that only opponents can play the "Welcome Home" half.

    Not gonna lie, having a drawback of "if your opponent is in your colors, they just murder you in the late game." would be pretty hilarious and somewhat thematic.

    That's my assumption. It's a split card, but the gimmick is that Goldilocks is a creature and welcome home is a sorcery.
    They haven't said officially, but there's no indicator on the card that says otherwise (like "fuse" or "aftermath")
    I'll admit though: the adventure subtype might have an impact (thematically, the creature goes on an adventure and comes back with three bears) but I would expect some reminder text, and the text box is already pretty cramped.
