Disrupting Shoal pitching Frost Titan to counter this!

Yeah I'll admit, this card isn't that great to hard cast, but getting it on the table with Quest for Ula's Temple certainly is pretty fun :)

Blue doesn't get good fatties at common guys. That's the price you pay for your countery shenanigans.

Still not bad for what it is though. No-one likes to fight against bouncing and countering and then have a 5/5 turn up right where they don't want it.

this is a good card (for a common) it is a blue fatty that doesn't require ur opponent to have an island to attack, just that you play one. are we suddenly gonna get mad just because not every blue creature is as good as inkwell leviathan

This art is so damn funny. The fish looks so retarded I can practically hear it going "DDUUUUUUHHHHHHHHHHHH!"
Yeah, it was probably not a very good idea to turn its head upside-down... ;)

Just remember that with cards like Sleep and other blue manipulation, it doesn't need big creature to get the job done. Making this card unblockable or just throwing down a Soaring Seacliff suddenly make this guy a threat, especially if you have some counter spells in had to counter act anything your opponent might throw down on this guy. Blue isn't often blessed with big creatures(yes, even Vizzerdrix carries its weight when equipped with Steel of the Godhead), especially ones like Sphinx of Jwar Isle or Goliath Sphinx.

Now I'll usually argue, most bad cards are funny and have their uses if you really try, at least casually.

But this guy was a waste of a common, and I'm getting tired of seeing magic just not try on commons. Defender should be, AT LEAST, -1 CC, not +1, no matter how easy it is to get rid of. Blue isn't much for fatties, no, and to show this it likes to give them huge drawbacks, but this just isn't funny. Give it Islandwalk, and MAYBE. MAYBE. But this? No. Not even worth running with Ula's Temple.

Did Magic just get its own Dopefish?

Hey Wizards, please explain this card before I kill you all.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
