The Father of Machines reminds me a lot of General Motors.

When messing around with such an unexplored field like instant-speed discard, Wizards needs to be cautious.

It's a bad card, but it's virtually impossible to tell before it's released to the general public whether an unusual card is overpowered or useless.
Esper Charm was a really good card, but it was limited by it's very narrow mana cost. The best decks that would've wanted instant speed discard like that couldn't justify all three of those colors.
A cycled Resounding Scream is prohibitively expensive.
My point stands.

This card is so overpowered. I feel bad running it in my deck because it's unfair to the other player, they need at least some hope that they could possibly win.

@NoobOfLore: I have personally built an instant speed discard deck, and I can attest to the fact that my opponents hate it. I combo Words of Waste with a Merfolk Looter to make them discard during their draw step. This isn't unexplored ground. This is intentionally avoided ground. I run Nezumi Shortfang in the deck, and while it is instant speed discard, its flip clause is there specially to prevent lockdown. Wizards doesn't like it.

No wonder Azax-Azog isn't the Black Praetor, when he made this **** while Sheoldred was busy making Skinrender.

Yeah, we finally got this sets Chimney imp. I new they would make an homage to it some how.

at least it has cool art and flavor text... but with a cmc like this it wouldn't have been broken with infect.
