He's a dwarf and he's digging a hole...

Throw Curiosity on him. Then the real mind games begin!
...or, your opponent will just kill him. Fair enough.

sorry bhunji42, that wont work. You target a land before the opponent chooses. And yes that matters. (sac or bounce the target land to counter the ability)

I used 4 of these in my mono red "choices" deck for a long time. They fit the "choice" theme well, but they're pretty weak, even for casual play. Best case scenario, you do 2 damage per turn starting on turn 5. Now, it's not a great comparison, but Chandra's Phoenix can start doing 2 damage per turn starting on turn 3 AND can be easily returned from the graveyard when it is inevitably killed.

This card is interesting.
Two damage are a too low burn to make the choice interesting, but the zero-mana cost of the ability makes it something like
Tap: Dwarven Driller deals two damage to target land's controller.
It's a sort of free Shock every turn! Not that bad, huh?

Very nice and powerfuld card. Not a tremendously weak creature, 2/2 will survive a lot of "all creatures take 1 pt" type effects. And ANY card that allows you to weaken the opponents Power by reducing their Mana Pool, OR their Hit points, hastening their demise and your victory, WITHOUT having to send your creature into harms way, is a wonderful card.

Maybe they could have worded it like the Alliances spells that give the opponent an option like
Fatal Lore
Library of Lat-Nam

Something like:
Tap Target opponent chooses one - Destroy target land that opponent controls, or Dwarven Driller deals 2 damage to targetted opponent.

This card is really confusing to players who don't understand exactly what it does. It should read something like this "Destroy target land unless it's controller allows Dwarven Driller to deal 2 damage to him or her".

It's a bit like Book Burning, if you misread the card then it is ridiculously over powered.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
