Not sure if he needed to be a rare but he makes for a decent uncommon.

I play him with Wonder in my U/G Madness deck. I didn't expect much out of him, but he's actually been surprisingly useful for repeated card draw. He draws most of the removal, too, meaning Wild Mongrel and Basking Rootwalla can operate unimpeded.

Not the best card ever made, but quite useful in the right situation.

Not bad and not great. There are better creatures that have this effect like Ophidian. To weak for Standard, needs something else to make it strong enough to play overall.

I think the point of this is totally missed - this card isn't trying to be another Cold-Eyed Selkie. It's using Ophidian's strongly-blue ability to make a Taunting Elf-style green blocking control situation. Drawing cards with him is not the issue. the threat of you drawing cards with him is what makes your opponent block him over your Wolf token or whatever. It's sortof like a 1/1 with infect, but not as immediately clearly dangerous.

That being said, it does feel awesome to get Mythic Proportions to cantrip.

Strange card the more I look at it. Seems like they left out something important. Something that would of made it more appealing.

Gomorrah: Whispersilk Cloak can't really be wasted. You can switch equipment to other creatures- so, this to draw you cards in the early game and then equip it to bigger creatures for face smashing in the late game. Not that you would ACTUALLY do that, becuase this isn't that great of a card, but you COULD. In theory.

So, anyway, this is blue/green. It gets card drawing from blue and green gives it....personality? Getting a toughness boost from mama green -to the tune of making it a 1/2- sounds better, so that when you swing on turn three, there won't be a chuckle from your opponent as they consistently eat it with their much bigger two/three drop. But I guess if you get a card off of this, it's already become a Elvish Visionary, so what more could you ask for? Well, that's IF you get a card off this. Which you often can't. I wouldn't take the gamble.

Giving it evasion at this cost would be absurd. Unblockable 1/1 at two is already balanced, you don't need to tack on a cantrip. A... (see all)
