He looks mighty confident, though.

Wait... aggro wizards? Is that even a thing?

There are 24 wizards with more than 3 power. 6 of them already have flying. Of those that don't already have flying, 12 are cmc 6 or more and 2 others have to flip first.

And beyond that, nearly every wizard has an activated ability way more effective than their brute strength. When I see Azami, Lady of Scrolls hit the table, the last thing I'm worried about is that she might gain flying.

Stop making fun of my dad! You know full well that we are not allowed to choose our powers!

Check it out dudes, the first and only time in the history of Magic that blue got the worst of something!

Those flying wizards in the back make this card hilariously awesome. Now I want to build a deck around him, bad though he is, just for them.

Actually, in some ways, this is the best Gempalm card. No, I'm being serious. It takes a while to accept the potentials, but consider:

"Wizard" is probably the most common type after "Human" (I think?) Don't think about this like a Green-Red Mage, who wants all their creatures to be 4+/4+ and have trample if they are striking-- think of this as your BETA plan, not your ALPHA one--

Check out all those Power 2 or less Wizards. They are pretty great cards. There's at least one Wizard Lord (though I forgot the name) AND of all the CLASS types, WIZARDS is the easiest to 'break into' with RACE Lords-- ie ELF Wizards, GOBLIN Wizards, HUMAN Wizards, ZOMBIE Wizards, MERFOLK Wizards...I think even BIRD Wizards exist and have a Bird Lord. Here is how I would suggest using Gempalm Sorceror to best effect:

U/R/G Riku of Two Reflections or U/B/R Nicol Bolas. Usually Nicol Bolas wants to play as much power as you can muster, but for flavorful funsies, wh... (see all)

More like Facepalm Sorcerer.

I don't know which is more hilarious, the fact that he looks like he's about to give someone a massage, or the little flying wizards in the background. I didn't notice them at first, but my goodness my heart just about stopped when I did.
It's like they were desperate to compensate for the lameness of the effect by making it look really scary... And failed horribly. I want to see an animated version of this card where they're flapping their little arms.

Definitely the worst Gempalm creature, but the wizards flying in the background of the art are hilarious.

The guy in the foreground would be a lot more intimidating if it weren't for the "flying" wizards in the background.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
