Unlike most cards that make you draw and discard, this guy makes you discard before drawing, which is obviously nice if you have an empty hand (or some madness cards / incarnations / retrace / unearth /flashback / threshold or whatever).

Definitely a useful twist on draw/discard.

Too bad it takes 6 mana total or two turns to pull it off.

The reason he looks so strange is that during the Onslaught block (in which he was originally printed) the Mirari, an incredibly powerful artifact that grants the desires of its possessor, has been stuck into the ground of the Krosan Forest. This causes the Mirari to leak its power into the surrounding land; eventually pulses of magic from the Mirari reach the entirety of the continent of Otaria. This has a warping effect on its inhabitants: they become exaggerated versions of themselves. Soldiers become hugely-musclebound and lose their mouths, elves become massive, almost tree-like beings covered in vines, and wizards become fluid, almost water-like beings made of energy.

However for the most part, mechanically, the cards themselves retain their original creature type, though some gain the "mutant" creature type, as well.

I demand this guy's creature type to become Human Wizard Survivor. The Alliances card Varchild's War-Riders, creates Survivor creature tokens so it is a valid type and it is in its name.

Ok, justify the human part of your demand?

He'd have been cooler as a Zombie Wizard. You know, if the riptide killed him. Ha. Ha. 1.5/5.

I really like this idea, and it probably deserves its own keyword, Call it 'Filter' in recent sets the ability has gone to Red and I understand why. You are discarding then drawing so you have no idea if you are getting value out of your cards, while Blue draws then discards 'Looter' hence you know the card you know in advance which cards are good to keep and which to discard.

In a Perfect world creatures like Red and Blue would have:
When this creature is turned face up Filter 2, Discard 2 cards then draw 2 cards or
When this creature is turned face up Loot 2, Draw 2 cards, then discard 2 cards

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
