Somehow becoming a Lich makes you cost less. Poor Egotist.

I swear, it's like half the commenters here don't know what kind of creatures colors other than green get.
a 2/4 for 4 is fair for blue.
the fact that it's an artifact and that it has a sweet esper ability is icing on the cake.

Braid_of_Fire's Card of the Day #3

At first, it's easy to decry this card as lazy design, as I am often tempted to with many Shards block cards. However, I think this card is more than the sum of its parts.

Lore-wise, it's excellent. Tezzeret's de***ion is haunting and captures what Esper (and to some extent, Blue) is with such terrifying accuracy that it's enough to give this card a pass on that alone. The art plays into this very well, so much so that it's hard to discern if the art, the flavor text, or the name came first. Esper's art direction was fantastic, certainly the best of the block, and this card is a perfect example of why.

Flavor-wise, I can see why a slight infusion of black mana would push him over the top in the "I don't want to block this thing" category and grant him fear, but his vigilance presents more of a "how do we make this set feel three-colored?" resonance. With everything else on the card, I think it's fine to overlook this for the most p... (see all)

I don't actually hate this card. If your environment is casual enough to play it, I can see it being a lot of fun. As an uncommon...

The only creature out there that has both fear and vigilance on its own. Being a near-unblockable, doesn't tap to attack creature is sweet... a little costly for what it does, but the 4 toughness makes it playable in casual (hold the lightning bolts, please). Would be a bomb in limited, I imagine...

It was pretty decent when I didn't have many esper artifacts and I threw him in to fill out a deck. But it's not good enough to throw in any legit deck, just useful for brief early deck. Heck, I run a b/u zombie deck and splash of white, and I don't play this guy because it's really not that good.

Darth Vader would look great wearing Quietus Spike and being a 5/5 via Mr. Tezz. You guys are missing it, he's just plain good in the Esper deck with a bunch of Etherium Sculptors.
