How is this guy rated so much lower than Disruptive Student? Disruptive Pitmage is a strictly better alternative (and this is a case where the "strictly better" is actually accurate)!

I find the beard on this wizard quite disruptive

Always a fun guy. Basically forces your opponent to always have one extra mana open, which effectively slows them by one turn.

very disruptive

Compared to the Student, the Pitmage has the element of surprise. Well, at least the first time you turn him around and counter a spell. But mischievous kid Teferi is more fun than some random "Pitmage" - they seemed to be getting a bit desperate around the Otaria blocks with the creature names.

This card depicts some weird blurry white dude. Disruptive Student depict Teferi antagonizing Barrin during class at the Academy. Therefore, this may be near-stricly better, but it is rated lower for good reason.

A fair number of people don't understand strictly better. Yes, we know there is some fringe case where one card can be better, those of you who are serious need to stop being obtuse. :P

The addition of morph is not trivial here. Play him face down and you have a Force Spike lying in wait, even if you have no cards in hand. Assuming you are playing other morph, you can trick your opponent into tapping out playing a spell, pass a Blue and counter it. The alternative is even better, your opponent will hesitate to cast anything they would have to tap out for as long as you have a face-down card in play; effectively setting them back a turn.Morph is beautiful for mind-games and mind games are what counterspells are all about. Suddenly some dude with a sweet 'stache is popping out of a crab thing and straight up palming your spell. That is blue.

This is a Disruptive Student with Morph. I mean, come on.

No, not strictly better. Disruptive Student can't be Backslided.

blabla even if they try to backslide then you have a pumped creature, still think this is the "strictly" better wizard

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
