This is basically a 2-drop 2/1 that allows you to get in an early attack without worrying about holding back to block. It actually reminds me a lot of the red creature, Goblin Shortcutter, only a lot more versatile. So it'll see play in Limited certainly, perhaps a small amount in Standard, and in Pauper? We'll see if White Weenie can make room for it.

I like this card. It is a 2 drop that makes stuff lategame. And that's very good for a common!

The big draw here is that it's a useful early drop (stops early blockers and can take some of the pressure out of an aggro matchup, has 2 power and so contributes reasonably to your offense) that isn't a dead draw late game (still detains!)

Early game you can detain and attack.. later game.. bounce it to let the heavy hitters through and he can sit back and chump block.

4 please!

I don't know why she's not scored higher... she's a second turn detain against Vexing Devil or other irritating one-drops, and the 2/1 isn't horrible.

I like you Wayne Reynolds, so I'm saying this because I care. But you really need to step back from the Rob Liefeld zone with this one here.

This art strictly needs more Fblthp.

But.. but but, I was just standing on this Ravnica street corner when I decided to slice a pedestrain to bits with my 18 Rakdos arm blades... is that a crime!?

Eh, not sure why it couldn't have been a 2/2, but I'm not complaining. Detain gives a cheap creature like this value even if he's cast later in the game. Honestly, if you put him out too soon, there probably won't be much for him to hit anyway. Well... mana dorks, I suppose.

Would you like a 2/1 or a card with your detain?
