    OLGOR! No!!!!!
    That said, great card. Fun and useful.

  • Graymalkin86

    I dunno which name makes me groan more: this or Grizzled Angler/Grisly Anglerfish

    • Phoenix UNBENCHED

      At least it’s a homuculus and not a book wurm.

      • Atarka Effreet

        Ahh see what you did there

  • Jacob Kodicovic

    This goes in my Jeskai Deck. Also, all of these spoilers have been great so far

    • Atarka Effreet

      I thought this would be like Oath of the gatewatch ; bland and only good because flavour. Instead its like SOI version 2; good AND excellent flavour! (this sounds like a comment for a cooking website)

  • Happy The Cat

    wish the backside had flying and couldn’t be blocked by creatures with flying so it could be flying twice as high from taking a look in a book.
    also wish it counted as every color so it would be a reading rainbow.

  • Samuel

    super easy to flip, tbh this feels more rare to me than graft stapler does but understand why it’s at uncommon

  • Jaya

    This is going to see play on 100% of standard blue decks, why is this uncommon? Im failing to see wizards logic more and more…
    It basicly just has to survive 1 turn then its a 3/4 prowess, cheaper instants sorcs, for 2…yeah value town.

  • ye

    Lol what a nerd. Emrakul corrupts this geek and he just gets better at reading.

  • Guest

    It may not be a wizard, but I think I can find a spot for this in that UR spell/wizard/prowess deck I was thinking about yesterday…

  • Fbn Dnl Schlr

    Fblthp, is that you?

  • Geddon

    This card is fun as hell. It reminds me of Uninvited Geist: I’m not sure I’d ever play it (I don’t play blue much), but the flavor and the art and the flavor text of the card are all great. I hope I get a copy just to have it.

  • Mr.Mayhem631

    pls be a cycle pls pls

  • Edward

    So they are really trying to push instants and sorceries in standard aren’t they? Well my Mizzix deck will be very happy

  • kk

    This thing is absurd…

    So powerfull.. and they are printing good draw spells.

  • Bige Boiy

    it sends a wholesome message and that’s what’s important

  • MrAptronym

    I wonder if this I/S subtheme is pushing towards some ability on kaladesh. In any case, this card is excellent.

    • Daniel Scott

      Kaladesh seems like the sort of place where there might be burn decks.

  • Melissa Juice

    Another adorable homonculus. :)

  • Ryū

    Gah, yes, 4 of, NOW.

  • Epiphany

    ridiculously fantastic art

  • Atarka Effreet

    Me 5 years ago : Oh look a book
    Me now : Read ALL the things!!!

  • kmk888

    Good god. A terror in multiple formats. I’m going to put it out there: I think this is quite playable in Modern. Better than Thing in the Ice because of its interaction with Thought Scour. Speaking of, Grixis Delver already plays 27 instants and sorceries including 4 of Thought Scour. It could easily include Gitaxian Probe as well.

  • Mack Tackleton

    I still want an eldrazi for each color. 2 colorless and 1 red. 2/2 annilator 1 with haste, green has hex proof, white has indestructible, blue has when this creature attacks draw a card and black has target player discards a card when this card attacks.

  • Vizzerdrix

    Nice little not to spell mastery

  • Bostorket


  • Nebulium

    Dear gods, the eldrazi are learning.

    • Nick Art

      Worse, they are educating.

      That’s one class I’d sure as hell skip…

  • Jonathan Mueller

    The transform condition might be a bit slow for constructed, but it still seems damn good in a spell-heavy deck.

    The fact that it is out of bolt range when flipped makes me think that Wizards might even intended for this to find its way into modern.

  • Blahblahblahbla

    This card is $$$$$$!! Makes me want to play Limited.

  • kk

    U/B or esper

    Turn 4 flip… Cast Dark Petition (for 4 mana)… Languish ( for 3 mana)… 2 Prowess triggers ( it´s going to survive)

    Attack for 2!!

  • Deadly Berry

    As if librarians weren’t creepy enough…

  • Edwin Marín Castro

    I’m going to buy 8 of them ASAP, this little guy is awesome!!!
