Ok look at the man.

He's an awesome-bearded, bionic-eyed, steampunk lightning-wizard.
What's he carrying all that crap for? Who knows?
He does.

Of course, I kind of wonder why he doesn't have a power of at least one, with all those swords, daggers, and potions he's carrying.

Pretty much what I'm trying to say is that the artwork is awesome enough for a legendary, I think.

Deceptively powerful. Even without the Collar, he surgically removes 1 toughness creatures and puts your opponent on a nigh unblockable clock.

Prodigals have always been good, and trading off that point of power that they never use for haste is a bargain.

I remember smashing the collar + pinger combo in constructed tourney with Naturalize. Yes I maindeck that thing... came in handy didnt it?

Anything that can wreck Ball Lightning without needing to combat it is a friend of mine.

Worldwake sure did do a good job of neutering RDW. Ironic that one of the key RDW stallers is red itself.

It can also sneak a surprise kill on a Steppe Lynx or Plated Geopede and keep the pressure on Boros Bushwhacker players.

Besides, I've always loved the "pinger" creatures, and bringing Vulshok Sorcerer with better art and an easier mana cost at the cost of a point of power (pfft) is a welcome addition.

best red uncommon in worldwake for limited. too bad the rest of the red uncommon and common pool can't back it up. My prediction: Red = easily the worst color in wwk for limited.

Awesome card, the haste makes him devastating against a lot of landfall style creatures. After that, he is a Prodigal Pyromancer that blasts away.

Combine with Basilisk Collar and watch people get very concerned... bwahahaha.

The best part is, if someone tries to mind control him, he can ping himself :)

Other than that, this guy with basilisk collar sure wins a lot of arguments. Except for indestructible arguments.

He's not as amazing as people say he is. People seem to be rating this creature as if it already has Basilisk Collar attached.

Generally, pingers are good in Limited. This one is no exception. Easily a top pick.
