It's intended to be used to make, I dunno, something valuable into the player's hand, in preparation for causing them to discard it.
This could get really naughty, really fast. Fun!
Um. I guess so - and I'm not sure. A gelatinous cube, I think?
Maybe Gelatinous Cube*?
Has C28120 been deleted, then? I'm really curious as to what it was.
I like this guy.
I like that this is a planeswalker with flavor text and no ultimate. That entertains me.
Yup. And also can't be used to selectively mill their good stuff as easily since it comes off the bottom.
Probably ought to send to graveyard; but then it's probably too good on yourself.
Nice. More effective than Millstone but undoes your attempts at damage-based winning at the same time. And can be used on yourself to keep yourself alive while setting up your defence. Nice.
SadisticMystic had a mini-rant about Aqueous Form over on Cloak of Jace.
Yesterday, I found out why Invisibility doesn't get reprinted. Wow. Aqueous Form blows it out of the water.
Yes to both the joke and the reference. Didn't realise all the existing ones only counted elves. Maybe this is slightly overcosted, I guess?
"Shrine Philosopher" being a joke on Traveling Philosopher being a grizzly bear?
This is pretty interesting. Reminiscent of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx (presumably what your Theros reference was alluding to?); also reminiscent of Cabal Coffers and Crypt of Agadeem for that matter. For actually counting creatures, this isn't as good as Gaea's Cradle, which is good because that card is broken in half. It's more flexible than Priest of Titania / Elvish Archdruid though, which is a pretty good spot to be in. This would be fairly popular if printed.
Btw, Shock Troops is taken. They even cast Shock!
Good point. I guess it's hard for it to be better than Lava Spike. But something pushed it up to uncommon later. In fact, I wonder if it's not rarity, but that wizards have been reducing the number of these.
Fair point :)
Given the single-mana cost was also on Slaughterhorn and Rubblebelt Maaka, I think Skinbrand Goblin's bloodrush cost is just "we can't go any cheaper than 1 mana and still require it to be red" :)
Spark Elemental was common originally.
Like Skyshroud Troopers or Elvish Aberration. Heh - or Princess Lucrezia or Riven Turnbull. Which show that blue has precedent :P
get rid of colons
Yeah, I don't know why I didn't. I think I barely played with it, but just found it confusing that an important mode of the card was buried in the rules text. I don't know why I found that worse than other "discard this: " effects.
Not sure about cost. That would make it better than Skinbrand Goblin, but that wasn't a very strong bloodrush card, so probably ok.
I was honestly surprised there wasn't a straight-forward trample-haste-sac at common I could just copy. I'm not sure if trample+haste is too good for common at a cheap price, or if "sac at end of turn" is too disappointing.
Or it's just that at common you'd basically have "1R 3/1 trample haste sac" and that compares unfavourably to the uncommon versions with upsides.
Oh... hmm... right. Yes, the "power" box is hidden while type planeswalker is selected, but it's not blanked, so that if you accidentally make a creature a planeswalker then undo it its power doesn't disappear.
I guess that is a bug. Thing is sometimes people want both numbers to appear in a planeswalker's field; I think of Jeska, Mending Medium.
For a workaround for the moment, you can make the power box reappear temporarily by selecting any type other than planeswalker (deleting the "r" on the end).
It's a planeswalker now. Only; uh.. what the heck? It's gained a VERY odd loyalty. That's an edit bug, Alex.
Create as a creature; (2/4), change mind and select planeswalker, hit preview. (loyalty shows up as 4) decide to change it to 3, hit confirm - everything looks sane, but now you make me look it's done this. And the edit box still only shows '3', so I can't fix it.
So... um... is this a creature or a planeswalker?
