I play this with chains of Mephistopheles so I shut their card advantage down, while mine runs rampant

This is card advantage when it is best.

Confidant aggro is the best way to win any game ^^

Chandler Bing would be on one of the best black cards.

Wow, it only forces me to have only cards with very low mana cost in my deck...
And soon I'll likely have to burn cards cause I can only have 7 in my hand...
I'm new to magic, so I hope I'll one day understand.

This card is as good as your 2 CMC or less cards and your library manipulation. Throw it into any random black deck and it will likely kill you. But if you've got Tarmogoyfs, Delvers of Secrets, Brainstorms, and Divining Tops, then he's just flat out amazing. A one-sided Howling Mine.

I think there's a deck to be made with counterspells and controlling instants, Delver of Secrets, Divining Top, Bob, and Stoneforge Mystics. I'm working on it, but I thinking UBW could be big in Legacy.

I understand why Bob is good, really, I do. What I don't understand is his ridiculously extravagant price tag. You could buy Bob for $8 when rav block came out and now he's $40!? How the hell? I don't understand how he could have gotten THAT much better as newer sets came out to merit paying more for him than for a rav block dual land

Otherwise, yes, properly played he's an amazing card, just an expensive one with a mildly ironic flavor text

Anyone else thinks he looks like Syndrome from the Incredibles, only in a different getup? Put him in a black and white jumpsuit, and you have an awkward supervillain, my friend.

why is phyrexian arena rated higher than him? this guy can bring you free extra lands! and also can swing for 2, if you are a smart deck builder, life loss wont be a problem with this guy.

I really understand the advantage here, but at the same time, I've never used it once. Know why?

I've beaten far too many opponents by simply sitting back as they drew a tarmogoyf or something and killed themselves. Suicide Black is one thing, but its ridiculous when a creature works against you almost as often as for you.

I started playing magic during Time spiral, however my local store only had Ravnica booster packs at the time, so it was like i started with Ravnica and in one of my early boosters i pulled out this guy... And i was like WTF is this! Why would i pay 2 mana for a 2/1 that hurts me? And its a rare? Screw it im playing grizzly bears!

So for like two years he was sitting in my trade binder and nobody wanted to trade for him because we all thought he sucks. Until i met that guy in high school who was apparently a bit more knowleadgable about Magic and said he needs him. I was like *why, he sucks* and he grinned and said *yeah but im kinda making a new deck and he fits perfectly*.

I immediately got a wierd feeling but i just wanted to finally get rid of the confindant so i traded him...and a magus of the tabernacle for a....HUNTED DRAGON!

Until i realized how much money a confidant costs, i was actually happy with the trade...

I've seen this bro induce enough foolish suicides to honestly believe that those flaming noobs on Gatherer for misunderstanding and/or underestimating Bob's power have contributed directly to rampant misplay of the Confidant. It's like people believe he's good but somehow still don't really get why. Incredible card, nonetheless.
