    um, that sounds like a much nicer version of ghonti’s trigger. just only happens the once.

    • Jazzyboy1

      Gonti’s trigger also only happens once. The only thing Gonti’s trigger has over this is that Gonti exiles the card face-down, so your opponent can’t see what you might play.

      • TogetherAlone

        that and gonti is good, this is likely bad. This requires you to have a way to kill the creature which will likely cost you another card so unless you have this on at least a 3+power creature you are actually losing card advantage. Gonti just gets it for by entering and is also a death touch body which is always relevant.

        One plus side to this is it does count towards ascend and is not beneficial to your opponent to remove most times.

          “so unless you have this on at least a 3+power creature you are actually losing card advantage.”

          This should be 2+. Yes you pay two cards to kill it and draw, but you would have spent 1 card to kill it anyways, so you’re only paying the extra one (this) for the purpose of draw. 2 mana draw 2 is okay; subpar when you have to wait a turn to have enough mana to kill the creature though.

          It is a card which is very strong but also fairly situational.

    Noice flavor. Effect isn’t too bad either.

    The flavorful Pirate cards are amazing. I love taking my opponents cards in interesting ways. I really just need a lord and a Legendary Creature to be happy with Pirates.

    It doesn’t say face up or face down, I’ll assume face up. In a GP game I got Gonti’d twice and he pulled my two Approaches and eventually beat me with them. HARD way to lose.

    • TogetherAlone

      How? They get shuffled into your Library when casted and they can only win if they are cast from hand. Did you get cheated? That is unless you mean you lost to Gonti beatdowns.

  • Random Guy

    2 mana draw a bajillion from opponent’s deck when target big creature dies. Very strong but also very situational as usually you want to kill the big threats ASAP and need a wide variety of removal to do so, so hard to say how much play it will see, probably sideboards but maybe a few mains.

    …..i dont know if its good but i like it.

  • Marvin Sürig

    Okay. Maybe this can turn into an interesting interaction with Dubious Challange. If your opponent has no creature give him one of your big ones while cheating out another of yours. Then kill your own creature after enchanting it with this.

    • Tolle

      I am dubious you are up to that challenge

    wow WotC, 2018 and still using gender labels? why not dead woman’s chest?!

      Es una referencia. Se te escapó, amigo.

      • Happy The Cat

        Don’t think I’m the one who’s misunderstood the reference here…

  • Aurore

    So enchant a creature early, then steal it with my Dragonlord Silumgar and let my opponent kill their own guy?

    • DouglasM

      You can’t steal it. The second you steal it, the aura is on an invalid creature and the aura goes to the graveyard.

    • Happy The Cat

      Or just kill it, shouldn’t be that hard, plus you’ll get free stuff.

    So if your opponent is using Infinity Elemental….>.>

    Seriously, though, what is stopping you from using a beefy pump spell on your opponent’s creature before killing it?
    Become Immense + Kill spell? (A 2-for-6+X)
    Vines of Vastwood + Kill spell? (A 2-for-4+X)
    Might of Old Krosa? + Kill spell? (A 2-for-4+X)
