Sweet! Ferrets!

I love how one of the best cards in Homelands is a ferret. This is a really efficient creature. A great first-turn play.

Awesome little creature, and it's amazing that a common from Homelands was so powerful that WotC decided to upgrade it's rarity to uncommon.

No, apparently it has been the case for some time that the ability to tap down blockers only works if the Ferrets are still alive (the ruling dates back to late-2008; M10 was mid-2009). As far as I can tell, it's being treated as a normal triggered ability and not as a delayed trigger. Looks like I've been misinterpreting the card, too. If it worked the way I used to think it did, then maybe it would read something like "Whenever Joven's Ferrets is blocked by one or more creatures, tap those creatures at end of combat. They don't untap during their controller's next untap phase."

Just to add to the confusion, Thicket Basilisk from Fourth Edition uses the exact same style of wording for its ability, but later reprints changed the wording to make its... (see all)

I don't know about you guys, but the more I discover about this Joven character, the more I like him

Zoah is right. My friend used to play this card against me and it was WELL worth the one mana cost. You never want to block it with your 1/1 and 2/2 creatures because you'll lose them the next turn. So, you end up letting this thing get in a few free hits until you can have out a creature that can kill it. It's not overly powerful, but definitely worth a 4/5.

Extremely fun with Rancor, since there's no good answer to it.

Let it through? 3 damage a turn starting from turn 2.

Block it? You won't have anything big enough to kill it for a few turns; it'll trample over any chump blockers or small regenerators, and tap regenerators or high-toughness blockers. Even once you finally have a fatty big enough to kill it and with enough toughness to avoid dying (meaning at least 3/4, generally), you'll be losing it for two turns in the process, which is a pretty big price for dealing with a one-drop.

Removal? Congratulations, you wasted removal on a one-drop... and I got my Rancor back so I can drop it on something bigger.

Also, these creatures got to keep their unique creature type. I'm surprised they weren't errated to beasts in the grand creature type update, or at least ferret beasts.

Also, if you want to use more recent cards with it in casual: Madcap Skills.

The only ferret creature type in the whole game! LOL!

AND it actually has a good ability/CMC! Enchant/equip your ferrets and annoy your opponent to death!
