Tasty. I could see this sticking around in core sets for a while. Dig that art, too.

U for a 1/1 Merfolk is fair enough, then it has islandwalk and that extra ability. I can't see anything bad about this guy.

iirc rules are that the revealed card must be distinguishable‚ so if for some reason you need to know if it's been played or not or w/e you can require it to be set aside or marked or something

knowing you can go through this extra hassle is oh-so-important because some day in some game revealing one freaking card just might have some measurable value

I like the little Urza's Bauble bonus trigger on top of the Islandwalk.
Plus this ability is both great for beginners to have in a Core Set.
And it makes this already badass-looking Merfolk Spy also more convincing about what it does.

It might not be Spike's choice, but this card is overall an example for great design.

True blue flavoring.

This looks like one of the best one drops blue has ever had. Plus, super flavorful. I wanna try it.

this doesn't seem too shabby. especially if you've got it in a deck with stormtide leviathan

What? a card at random? Bleah, you should get the whole deal if he gets through.
Would I draft Port Inspector over this? perhaps.

I don't like the combat requirement.

The perfect spy would be a Sleeper Agent with "you play with your hand revealed".
