    new toy for pauper!

    • Jay Kilian

      Jeez. This will make for way more stompy decks in the meta

      More like new addition to the Pauper banned list.

      If Wizards would ban Cloud of Fairies for the reason they did, they’ll ban this too for the exact same.

      • Shagoth

        The ficker combo doesn’t work here.

  • JD Farrell

    Oh it’ll be fun trying to collect a lot of these in draft XD

  • Kevan Kramer

    Place your bets now on when this card will be banned in Pauper!

    • Shagoth

      I don’t think this will be broken. It’s a rare shift creature which replaces itself mana wise, but the important thing with the Cloud and Drake is that the lands could easily produce extra mana.

      • Zombie

        “Free” creatures are notoriously overpowered in Pauper. Cloud of Fairies was essentially the same thing in a way, a free CMC 2 creature that refunded its own investment. That was banned. Then Peregrine Drake came along. Banned.

        This will likely get the axe in Pauper.

        • Shagoth

          Like I said, those untapped lands that could net extra mana, this card can’t.

          • Zombie

            Just because it’s not an infinite loop combo doesn’t automatically mean it’s not problematic.

            “Free” creatures are dominant powerhouses across the entire Pauper format.
