I never thought I would ever see the creature type "Human Insect" actually printed.

Possibly stupid question. If I have more than one of these guys, because I'm just revieling the top card and not losing it or moving it, can I transform all of them? I'm really digging this guy.

Best thing ever was when a guy put Bonds of Faith on my Aberration, because he thought it was an Insect Horror. RTFC, guys.

Here is where this card becomes better than reckless waif and others like it. Here is why its legacy and vintage playable.

It doesn't flip back. It is pure aggro for a control (instant sorcery heavy) deck. If it flipped back, it would be common. The way it is, there are decks built around this creature, and has made itself seen in legacy and vintage on occasion because it works.

There is absolutely no negative to this card. Therefore it's a 5.

A 3/2 flyer for 1, and just a common, the ONLY common that currently runs $1.00. No commons run a dollar...

You thought Human Insect was weird? Add Wizard to that.

I kind of wish they had found a way to use the letters M and S in the name, so that the card in its entirety would be MS-DOS.

But hey, 3/2 flier for {U}, you can't have everything. :)

Obviously, Delver of Secrets is a rather worthless card unless it transforms into Insectile Aberration.

The reason it was reliable back in M12 Standard was because Ponder could increase the odds of Delver flipping from roughly 40% to near certainty. Adding Gitaxian Probe and Thought Scour, while unable to stack the top of the library, increased the odd of having both Delver and Ponder to work with in the early game. Lastly, Mana Leak and Vapor Snag could control most of the metagame with Snapcaster Mage extending the reach of the deck.

Would a similar (Delver based) strategy work in Modern? Perhaps, but since the closest thing to Ponder is Serum Visions, and the metagame is more diverse, blue's go-to one-drop just isn't what it used to be.

Hilarious. Very clearly dies to Giant Spider - notice that in the picture he is a dried up husk in a web.

funny how just one point of power is the difference between a strong card and a dominating card.

that said, very good flavor in the card.

@Comicsaurus
Your opponent will have a chance to Gut shot the second one or force you to draw, but if they don't all of them will transform.
