I really want to like this card. On one hand, it's a frickin' robot owl of doom that replaces itself and gives you a deathtoucher. On the other hand, it's unabashedly overpowered (in the words of Aaron Forsythe: "it is fun because it is overpowered (too good for Standard)") and would not have been printed outside of a casual supplement like Planechase. And finally, I'm disappointed in the competition this gives to Coiling Oracle. Whatever happened to Green having the best creatures? Looks like Black is stealing its thunder now. Everyone's favorite Snake Elf Druid had better get an upgrade in the new Ravnica block.
... sigh. This card is better than it has a right to. And this may or may not be a bad thing.

When you play this card, it's essentially +1 for the boys back home, if you know what I mean.

This little guy would perfectly fit in an Esper-Control deck with cards like Restoration Angel, snapcaster mage and maybe Venser.
Although i never played vintage or legacy, i guess a 4 drop like restoration angel is not rly playable in such fast formats :(

@General_Naga: Or you could both name it Card Advantage and call its creature type that, like a token. Of course, if something made tokens of these, the text would have to be changed to "You gain CARDNAME"

I'd put it on par with Coiling Oracle, since both essentially draw you a card. In exchange for deathtouch, this guy gives up the chance of putting you a land drop ahead (assuming you already dropped a land this turn, anyway).

Well, I know which pre-con I'm buying now. B)

Good thing this is only good for Legacy/casual play, anywhere else and it'd be way too good.

Very powerful, but NOT over powered.

For anyone to complain how 'blatantly OP this card is' lets look at a few facts about it first.

1) It can only be put into a BlueBlack deck, or a Variable ColorlessBlueBlack deck. It would defiantly make BlueBlack decks stronger with the card, but it isn't exactly something that would make this blatantly Overpowered. In my opinion, color balance has just as much effect on the 'balance' of a card then core sets or not.

2) Second, drawing a card is nice, as it replaces a card in the hand. But as much as it is drawing a card, that said card could mean that you just have an extra land when you don't need it, or a huge creature that you can't play. Top-decking draw cards with a card like this is a lot harder unless you use production methods, and because it doesn't have flash it also increases your chance of a dead miracle in hand.

3) Flying is decent, and deathtouch is also good, but being that it is only a 1/1 for BlueBlack it would mean that it could kill one thing unless made indestructible.

4) If this WAS printed in a... (see all)

While there are better Tinker targets- this is a good Tinker target.

No, this card is not overpowered. Overpowered would warrant it more than 5 stars in terms of power. It's actually right on the money.

What you're seeing here is a good card; they are far and few between, as many cards are either overcosted or bad, so I can understand the surprise. However, it does probably deserve to be a rare.
