Where have I seen that flavor text before?

I love the art. The evil smile he's giving while clutching the mace behind him. Like he's gonna give you a rap on the noggin for not giving tithe to good ole Orzhova. Also, the little thrull clutching the money sack is adorably helpful. Steve Prescott, I salute your work.

The card itself is neat. I prefer cheap extort creatures so I can flood the field with them, and a bear with extort is fairly useful.

So excellent in limited. You'll play six of these.

@RAV0004 Except this card can be played in mono-white EDH. That w/b? That's reminder text, and doesn't factor into the card's color identity, nor has it ever. The rules didn't change just to screw with extort. Those have just always been the rules. The reason the cost is w/b instead of 1 is for flavor reasons. Only Orzhovic mana can extort people, because of course it can. If a Boros drafter wants to use this guy and extort, he has to use mana that an Orzhov mage would have. He can't use red, red is the color of...not extort.

Tax Bear is really good. You don't often get a two-drop who can be relevant at any stage of the game, but this one is.

It's the Tax Bear!

One of my favorite cards. Simple, and flavor-wise, quite fun. Plus, it has the cleric creature type, so it gets some synergy beyond simple Orzhov and extort.
3.5/5 (but 5/5 for flavor)

Dammit, still not strictly better than Glory Seeker. *grumble*

That look on his face is pure religious evil.

@ flaviola: Gotta work on that material ;)

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
