you don't play him because he's good. You play him because he looks awesome.

Oh man, I did a double-take when I saw the art. I thought that he was giving the middle finger.

Shame, too. That would have been a perfect explanation for how he taunts creatures into attacking.

There is thematic reason why defender alone wont save the creature.

There is a conceptual difference between walls and non-wall defenders. Walls are rooted (even flying ones as you cannot walk under) constructs or plants, which need magic to get moving. Non-wall defenders on the other hand are homeguard who are instructed not to attack. If they are tempted they can and should attack.

Based on this WoTC should check all defenders and reclassify them. For example Glint Hawk Idol should be errated as 'count as a wall' because it's clearly seen that a Dwarven Demolition Team could sneak on it and blow it and that Norritt couldn't tempt it.

Icy Manipulator, Royal Assassin and Norrit. Nice trio huh?

Played this the other day in my commander deck with Gwendlyn Di Corci as my general and it was so awesome. He's like a Nettling Imp, plus he can untap gwendlyn for extra random discard or whatever else. Solid 4/5 for the two abilities.

Anyone who's seen Gremlins 2 knows who this guy reminds them of.

@bigrig69 - he works greate with Merieke Ri Berit or any other blue card where tapping gains you an advantage.

My first combo was this guy and Sengir Vampire, but as I only had about 2 of each and my deck was around 250 cards it didn't see much play

This + Jace's Erasure + pretty much anything that lets you draw and discard a lot (e.g. Cephalid Broker or Enclave Cryptologist) is a great way to draw a ton of cards while simultaneously milling your opponent.

For even greater effect, add a dash of Elixir of Immortality.

If you happen to have a few Icy Manipulators in your deck, you can even use this guy to murder creatures when you don't need to draw any extra cards.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
