So in the flavor text, it says Karn's creation is now his master...could Memnarch come back in New Phyrexia? I know he was deactivated and destroyed, but maybe...that would be AWESOME!!! If he does, he might be a planeswalker! I think that it would be cool for the mythics to the the five praetors, Karn the Corrupted (maybe as a planeswalker), and Memnarch Reborn (again, maybe as a planeswalker), then maybe Yawgmoth Reincarnated (a stretch, but it would be SWEET!!!)

Also, can't you enchant one of your own guys to give him infect?

Mind Control and Volition Reins are my favorite blue cards in casual play. Meet your new best friend! This card DESERVED to have Karn on its cover. Heck, worst case scenario you equip one of your own fatties with infect and win the game.

@ Robram89: blue has infect, this card right here. Oh, a proliferate. But it's not like that gets along with infect at all :P

This card and Distortion Strike are the only reasons to splash Blue in Infect decks.
My guess would be both will be featured in the UB Infect Event Deck.

Okay, who else was super excited when the art for this card was revealed in that Arcana a few weeks back?

Now I'm ***ed. I was so hoping for Karn to at least be a creature. :<

The card's good, don't get me wrong. I just really wanted to cast him and yell out "KARN IS DISPLEASED WITH YOU WRETCHED MIRRAN SCUM. I HAVE COME TO TAKE THIS WORLD IN THE NAME OF PHYREXIA."

@Thraxan_Number_14: Well, they WERE made with the same Style guide. That DOES matter.

My favorite moment of the Prerelease was using this on a Molten-Tail Masticore. I felt really bad for the guy for about half a second, and then I hit him in the face for 4.

I can really see UB Control sending in Skittles and this instead of the Titans. Maybe a sideboard card.

Slapped it on an opponent's Victory's Herald during the prerelease and laughed heartily.

Hell, you can do this on your own beefy creature just to give it infect. Probably one of my favorite blue cards in this set.

A beefier mind control with infect? Sick, I'm glad I got 3 of these!
