    also this is am example of (I’m pretty sure) organic matter being corrupted, for all you emrakul supporters

    • Dr. Burn Crow

      Lamps aren’t organic, silly child.

      • Trevor Terry

        .. Metal is not an organic substance? It’s certainly not synthetic….

        • Mr.Mayhem631

          “organic” means derived from or part of living matter.
          Being an intolerable pedant on the internet, though something I can respect, only works when you’re right.

          • Bige Boiy

            no fight pls

          • Trevor Terry

            Everything in our universe was created by the stars (Save for the element Hydrogen) through nuclear reactions. So you’re saying the stars in the universe aren’t considered “living”, that’s funny – because astronomers refer to a star that’s left the main phase as a “Dying” star, how can something which doesn’t live, die?

            Everything created by the stars should be considered a part of living matter, as it was was part of a star. “Inorganics” or “Synthetics” are things which are created by mankind (or alien races) from the organic matter found in the known universe.

          • Mr.Mayhem631

            We get it, you think you’re smart.
            However, I think if you ask anyone with any brains they’ll tell you stars are not alive, and that nobody has said that.
            Or are batteries alive? People say their batteries “die” all the time.

          • Trevor Terry

            Batteries are man-made. Stars (as far as we know) are not.

          • Mr.Mayhem631

            the point
            your head
            whoosh

          • Trevor Terry

            Oh, I understand the point you were trying (and failing) to make. You attempted to compare them using their tentative similarities, along with the fact that we refer to batteries which no longer generate energy as “dead” to prove your point.

            Your point however, fails to take into account that batteries are vastly different from stars, on almost every level. Yet you attempt to compare them like they’re both the same. Yes, we refer to a battery as “Dead” but that is meant to imply that the charge it provides is dead, not the actual battery.

            When we refer to stars, we refer to the star itself, not it’s chemical reaction, because when a star DIES (depending on the mass) it turns into something completely different from what it was previously.

          • Mr.Mayhem631

            If you understood the point I didn’t fail to make it.
            The point is that nobody has ever said or implied that stars are alive, and you’re saying that since “dies” can in one context means “was once alive but now is not” that it must mean it in this context.
            Again, being an intolerable pedant only works when you’re right.

          • Trevor Terry

            What I find most entertaining about this argument of ours is that at first, I just wanted to see how much time I could waste, so I threw out some word vomit that might begin an argument, but over the course of the last four hours. I have grown quite fond of my very poorly made argument. And now desperately seek to find nonexistent data in an effort to prove it.

            All that being said, even if the metallurgic properties of the metal contained carbon, I think that’s a bit of a lore stretch for WOTC, and would be much simpler to say “he’s a wizard, and can animate lamps”.

          • Mr.Mayhem631

            Yes, yes, you were, trolling, I get that.
            Also he’s not a *wizard*.

          • Trevor Terry

            … He’s not? I’m pretty sure it says “Human Wizard” right there on the card.

          • Mr.Mayhem631

            Hence the **.

          • Trevor Terry

            Now who’s trolling?

          • Mr.Mayhem631

            *shrugs*

        • Dr. Burn Crow

          You don’t know the metallurgical qualities of those lamps.

          • Mr.Mayhem631

            Yeah! He doesn’t know the somethingsomething of the lamps!

          • Dr. Burn Crow

            You tried. Get yourself a prize from the prize chest and a packet of gushers.

      • Bige Boiy

        the distortion we previously saw on the houses is also visible here on his shoulder. clearly I wasn’t referring to the lamps

        • Mr.Mayhem631

          So then what’s messing with the lamps?

          • Bige Boiy

            the gitrog toad

          • Mr.Mayhem631

            yas

        • Dr. Burn Crow

          But the lamps are walking. So nothing about what you said was clear.

  • Bige Boiy

    it would have been cool if he had annimated clues

  • SmolderingButcher

    That art is DOPE.

  • Kevan Kramer

    Great uncommon and I love how he makes clues as well.

  • Aarhg

    Dude, those lantern crawlers look dope as hell, brah. Gnarly moves!

  • MrAptronym

    That art is stunning. Notice the lamp he is holding… Five legs. Like a Five Legged Moon Shrew!

    As for the card, I am in love with investigate, even if it isn’t the strongest ability, even if it has an effective upper limit, I just want to build a deck filled to the brim with investigate now.

  • kmk888

    Beautiful and creepy art.

    Good limited card. We now have a grand total of one piece of clue support.

    • MrAptronym

      Tamiyo’s Journal begs to differ :P

      • kmk888

        Oh, you’re right. Make that one good uncommon and one horrible rare

        • Angrygnome

          And Briarbirdge Patrol. Yet more is likely to show up, still.

          • kmk888

            That’s neat. It certainly looks like U/G investigate is a limited theme to me.

  • khan1104

    Why don’t this dude make your clues into 1/1, that would be awesome

    • Deadly Berry

      Clues are not creatures to begin with, but I think you say it because the lamps are walking hence indicating they got animated. I also agree he should make clues creatures at least 1/1.

  • Dominic Ng

    … So he got a clue of how to become a wizard. Cool.

  • Grant us eyes.

  • Here is hoping that they make a Clue token as one of those lanterns.

    • Jonathan Mueller

      I’d be guessing we’ll be getting four different clue images.
      At least that’s the amount of Eldrazi Spawns we had, which were similarly common.

      It would be a cool motive, but I feel like it is too specific to this one card, and they’ll probably use more generic images.

      • Jonathan Mueller

        Then again, didn’t they talk about making tokens with flavor text revealing details about the story?
        If those lanterns have some significance relating to the plot, we might get one with such flavor text after all.

    • Melissa Juice

      Now that is a fantastic idea.

  • Jonathan Mueller

    Why does he stop being a Rogue, though?

    If searching for the source of “these strange happenings”, he still keeps his search up if you investigate when dealing damage to an opponent, which is a very common metaphora for rogues of succeeding in their raid and acquiring knowledge.
    So in this case, doing what he had been doing before his transformation.

    Maybe they simply scrapped the third type since it’s an uncommon and they didn’t feel like giving him three types.
    I hope not, though.

    Character at the beginning of Bloodborne vs. the end of Bloodborne.

  • Vizzerdrix

    Kark clan ironworks not necessarily a deck to play but you don’t need to play the 2 for a card like this just sacing the clue will transform him
