    Lol so if you go off that turn it's just Grim Tutor and you can even split the cost over multiple turns? And if you have key etc then you can easily do it twice? Donate it to the opp then chain of vapor it back to your hand or whatever

    Definitely going to see play somewhere

    Edit: you can search for animatou with it and then blink it with the -1 ability which is pretty funny (or Brooding Saurian)

    The Brooding Saurian idea is super funny actually because the Monkey Paw can search for itself also and it's not even legendary
    I could imagine some Nicfit variant where you thoughtseize/hymn your opp to make sure they have no removal for your 4/4 and then chain off a bunch of these

    Stoneforge decks generally aren't in the market for Temur Battle Rage I don't think
    It's a super weird design because it wants 1 Big Creature for the trample/doublestrike but also wants you to go wide for the cost reduction

    Tutor for Karn, the play it and Null Rod it with Karn's ability. There are plently of ways this could be abused.

    Once Upon A Time is great, though, especially as its design clashes heavily with Xerox decks and provide consistency to non-Xerox decks.
    Good post. I really like the idea of green decks getting a bump; most are in the market for creatures and lands. Turbo Depths seems to gain a little from this card, it's a 'free' early cantrip that doesn't suck ass in the mid-late game. It even gets around Chalice@1. I can see playing this before even making any land drops to plan the game better right from the start. I'm willing to bet any deck that could play both a cantrip and a Thoughtseize turn 1 without any card disadvantage would love to do just that. It also somewhat offsets a 1-land hand, but that could lead to bad mulligan decisions.

    Re: Throne of Eldraine Spoilers

    WotC is really going all out trying to help people realize Blade is no longer playable. Kcomm into Plague Engi into PW killer, and even a [why isn‘t this a sorcery] cantrip that digs 5 towards the Questing Beast (or Engi) or the Wasteland for the Karakas.

    There‘s a lot wrong with that cantrip, and the only positive thing it‘s doing is eating a Chancellor trigger. The whole dig for Macabre would be cool....but it doesn‘t solve the issue with B/R leading on discard your Surgical with Chancellor backup.

    Much more intelligent design would have been “if you have not cast a spell this game, no effect controlled by an opponent can make you discard a not-Once Upon a Time card.“ Then the whole 1G look at top 5 for land or dude.

    Re: Throne of Eldraine Spoilers

    Oh yeah it's also another 0 mana spell for the green phoenix decks (with land grant) to up the consistency of Ritual/Buried on turn 1,and if you use that jund build from reddit it digs through your deck for young pyro and reveler. I like it

    In this case we already have stuff like Swarmyard that really ought to work with mice, and stuff stuff like Pack Rat where it maybe shouldn't.

    Don't know about anyone else, but adding unnecessarily specific creature types that only end up conflicting with already existing ones is a practice that seriously bothers me.

    At first this might sound like a solution, but then you learn that 40% of all mammal species are rodents and realize why this would be a problem

    Yes actually. I have no trouble with Peasant.

    Would any of those rodents be of unusual sizes?

    So I think it's time for a rule's update, there is no way Questing Beast should be able to bypass Riptide Biologist. This is a massive flavor fail.

    If you get this guy's power above 2 for the block, he should not take the damage.

    Giant Killer might be alright as a tutor target for Recruiter or Ranger-Captain of Eos. I like it.
