I played this card with Skull collector, and on turn 5 I've locked down my opponent completely ... specific but very good card,

Predecessor to the greatest combo engine of all time, Chimney Imp, but worse because of NO FLYING!!!!! Plus, it costs BB instead of just B!!! AWFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!

i love that card. the "anti-cantrip" ability is quite powerful (and at least annoying for your opponent :D) in my eyes, and you still get a solid 2/2 guy for 1BB.

as sotrmkeeper already said, combined with Soul Foundry, you can easily create a soft-lock :)

on top of this, i like the artwork and name as well as the creature type. while it isn't a too powerful one for a tribal deck, it's still not useless.

besides, i'm always glad to see such interesting cards released as commons without suffering regrettable losses.

Jokes on you, I had Temporal Mastery in my hand.

Not a bad card. I can see it being a pinnacle of a Rat tribal deck; and I like the art.

Overall, not a bad card, nothing that stands out, but -definitely- playable.

Unnoticed Chimney Imp trolling ftw. Thanks sweetzombijesus.

similar effect to Chimney Imp, but its worse because it doesn't have flying.

A nice tempo engine in Rat ninja.

Take THAT, Chimney Imp.

@ krockgreen: I would prefer playing a 2/2 with this effect two turns earlier, than play a 1-power flyer that has to die to get the anti-cantrip.

That said, this is in my top-ten fave creatures in MTG; I love throwing this into a casual mono-black deck, its slows them down a bit and provides a decent 3 turn creature.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
