with krarks thumb and goblin bookie I got it up to 15/15, without them it would have been a 10/10, this was the first time I played this card, more importantly 11 successfull coin flips made me win the game regardless of his power and toughness because chance encounter.

I find it very funny that a card with a *flip a coin* ability is rated at about 2.5 / 5 as of this posting.

..i rate it 2.5 / 5.

We could use more comic relief for Limited.

"REAL LIVE MATH TEACHER." Real? And live?! The legends are true!!

Come on, who are you kidding. Math teachers don't play *Magic*. Take Richard Garfield, for instance.

Crazed Fircat is virtually worthless unless you have the ability to redo flips.

Statistically Crazed Fircat will be a 4/4 50% of the time, a 5/5 25% of the time, a 6/6 12.5% of the time, and a 7/7 6.25% of the time. That means this is a vanilla 8/8 or more 6.25% of the time and a 7/7 or less (usually less) 93.75% of the time.

Put simply the card sucks. Unless you can redo coin flips, at which point it is marginally playable.

EDIT: Ignore the other person who cannot do math.

SECOND EDIT (for those who have difficulty with probability): Let us ignore the fact that I am a real live math teacher.

Let's pretend you chose to call heads every time (because it will not effect the outcome anyhow). The card begins as a 4/4. You flip once. You have a 50% chance of flipping tails in which case you STOP FLIPPING and have a 4/4. You also have a 50% chance of flipping heads and getting a +1/+1 counter and the RIGHT TO FLIP AGAIN. As you can see there is a 50% chance of being stuc... (see all)

Jesus, there are some retards here. pumaman83 is definitely right. It's 25% because you have to take consecutive flips into account. I wish you could post images here, I've got a great Facepalm for you two.

thaviel is right, you are just as likely to be a 5/5 as a 4/4, it's not like you need 2 flips to make him a 5/5, which is what 25% is suggesting. if you flip a coin and win, +1/+1 and thus a 5/5, you get to flip again. loose the flip, and no +, you get a 4/4 and don't get to flip again, 50/50. sorry pumaman, your the one who can't do math.

still almost useless without the thumb, but with mirror gallery and multiples of it, you have a potential monster.

And here i thought all Magic players knew how to do math..

pumaman83 is 100% correct. (i had the throw in the percentage, as everyone else is so keen on it here..)

I guess with the coin flipping combos mentioned, this could be playable. but 7 for a 5/5 is still bad.
