Swap your Juzam for this 50 cent bird, and it's a cantrip to boot!

Lemme tell ya, this card was everyone's friend.

Wow. This is only an uncommon. That makes it even better, I guess? If you were playing for ante, why *wouldn't* you run a playset of these in your deck?

This goes into the list of "Cards with activated abilities you really don't want to play with Experiment Kraj"

When your Lord of the Pit is sittting in the ante pile and you've got Animate Dead in your hand top decking this thing is spooge-tacular (and yes I played a black ante deck, 4 contracts = you win the other players cards)

This card is actually pretty useful if you use things that involve anteing more yourself (especially if they encourage your opponent to ante more, too, like Rebirth.) Ante a bunch, then swap it all for one bird.

But if this card is so useful why would you want to ante it instead?
I could only imagine someone having like 100 copies of this card :P

If you run a recursion deck with two of these and Demonic Attorney, I'm quite sure your nose will start suddenly bleed. Great card though.

They should add ante on Magic Online. Consent of course.

It's also dumb spelling "lose" as "loose"...

I just threw up in my mouth.
EVEN IF YOU WERE PLAYING ANTE, THIS WOULD ONLY MAKE EVERYONE HATE YOU ANYWAY.
Man, I'm glad I jumped into Magic on Mirrodin. Some of these early cards... Bleck.

"Quit being a sissy, we used to HAVE to play for Ante back then."

Is that why all ante cards state that they have to be removed from your deck if you aren't playing for it? That's not the Oracle text; that's what is printed on the actual cards.
