It's not necropotence.

I love how the lord of atlantis is giving the opposing wizard the finger. No wonder the art was changed on the next reprint.

Style points for using this to redirect a Lightning Bolt to toast one of their own creatures instead of your Lord of Atlantis. Makes the "No. 1" salute quite fitting.

3 = R, and a step down in rarity. By this logic, Necropotence should cost 1R and be a basic land.

I would think "fish" would be a derogatory name for merfolk or is the Lord of Atlantis appropriating it?

"3 = R, and a step down in rarity. By this logic, Necropotence should cost 1R and be a basic land."

Oh, come now. That's quite a leap. Yes, Swerve has both dropped in rarity and cheaper mana-wise (but don't forget it's also MORE color-intensive/restrictive, which usually comes with a bit of a CMC discount), and there has been plenty of power creep. This is just how the game has changed and adjusted as the years have gone by.

But remember that there are also effects that have been made MORE expensive. Gone are the days of 2- or 3-mana land destruction (the standard nowadays seems to be 4 mana minimum, usually 5 with an extra effect) and 2-mana counterspells with no restriction (these are the closest cards to Counterspell that we've gotten in recent years: Corrupted Resolve, Deprive, Unified Will, and Stoic Rebuttal - all four require some deckbuilding r...

Would have been so, so much better if you'd been allowed to change the target of an ability as well.

But that's why we have Willbender
