Isn't it funny how the censoring actually makes things worse? I would have never in a million years associated anything vulgar with Roo***er Hunter until the auto-censor pointed it out with a wink and a giggle!

How do you make prodigal sorcerer better? Make it a merfolk!

Originally, waaaaaay back when, the ability for creatures do deal direct damage was a blue-aligned ability.

Originating with Prodigal Sorcerer and Pirate Ship.

@achilleselbow: Tim's the original, with much of the rating based on nostalgia rather than power. This guy's just a copycat, albeit a much more useful copycat.

I don't know why they didn't keep pingers in blue. Hasted red pingers don't seem too useful when you could use a ton of other cards that are more efficient at the same cost.

I don't know how this creature has a ping ability, but I do know it runs well with Merfolk Commerce. Ping on your turn, untap at the end of turn using Commerce, ping on another's turn, then untap during your turn. Nice. By itself no better or worse than Prodigal Sorcerer, but much better with Commerce. It just doesn't make any sense though.

should be classified as summon laser merfolk

Why is this rated so much lower than Prodigal Sorcerer when it's the same thing with better tribal interactions?

I don't know that I would really say merfolk are BETTER than wizards as a tribal. Both are well supported.
