Wow. I'd rather run this than Tidehollow strix.

That's a lot of good for just one little bird.

Well, this is certainly replacing the Thalakos Seers in my ninja deck.

Seems like something out of Urza Block - it perfectly and efficiently fulfills its intended role to a horrifying extent (a 0-for-1 trade when it blocks which scares off multiple giant creatures from all of your opponents, and a cantripping nigh-unblockable (good luck getting an advantage out of blocking this with anything other than a token or first-strike flier) attacker for ninjitsu, that also lets you draw more cards over the course of the game because of ninjitsu's bouncing). Unlike most cards in Urza Block, it's only slightly overpowered/undercosted in a way that's still fun to use rather than comboing out instantly in an unfair way. It really makes you wonder what they would've priced this monster if they had to worry about Standard - 2UB maybe?

everything about this card is beautiful. the card draw, the deathtouch, the flying, the art, the artifactness....

This is like a blue-black version of Coiling Oracle, but with evasion.
Had this owl been printed in a real set, I'm certain it would have been a 4-of in tournament decks for the tempo it provides and the ability to equip the Mirrodin swords.

@AlphaWolfs: So what you're saying is that unless a card is literally the best card in print and can single-handedly win games without any back up it's not overpowered? You're wrong, this card is an amazing card for the mana cost, and really you don't use {U}{B} cards in a red burn deck?? I don't mean to be overly harsh but people need to realize that this card IS amazingly overpowered and as far as the swords, the idea of it being standard is Hypothetical and so in theory it could've been printed in Core 2012 or 2011 and then it would've been standard with swords

This card can take out your opponent's best creature and probably cost less than your opponent's creature did, It's very difficult to remove as it is black, it is more susceptible to red however since it's an artifact, but it's immune to almost all black removal.

A very fun card but shouldn't have been printed and it's just a good thing its legal in the formats that have access to much better cards 5/5 for sure

The power level of this card disturbs me. I know it's not Standard-legal, but still... once they start using "not Standard legal" as an excuse to print blatantly OP cards, it becomes a slippery slope, no?

Could somebody quickly inform me as to something this can't do?
