    I adore this. I have a special love for cheap deathtouch creature.

    • Hedronal

      In something other than black, no less.

  • Nharzhool

    This seems pretty good for a Delirium deck.

  • SmolderingButcher

    This card seems pretty good.

    Simple. Effective. Elegant.

      Just left a comment on Blessed Alliance. Really impressed with these Uncommons. Once again, One mana 1/1 that has DEATHTOUCH. If it stays on the battlefield long enough for you it becomes a 3/3.

      Dear I say Eternal Formats as a stopper to Goyf? Idk, I don’t play Magic like I used to but something that is cost effective and can come down before Goyf and plays great later into the games just seems good.

  • TogetherAlone

    This seems really good in limited….. chance at standard play as well.

  • Zombie


    This might actually be viable outside of Standard…

    • Happy The Cat

      can be if modern Naya zoo can hit delirium fast enough. this could be nacatl 5-8

      • Zombie

        I was thinking more along the lines of being Modern’s Nimble Mongoose in a Delver shell.

        RUG Delver:


        Gnarlwood Dryad

        Snapcaster Mage


        I’m already sold

          I guess, but wouldn’t the slot be better with goyf or some anti tech that deals with stuff like affinity/tron and the eldrazi whatever they want decks? this definitely will make a case as the poor man’s goyf though.

  • That Guy

    I like this. I love making my opponent go mad deciding whether or not to waste removal on a one drop. And it reminds me of nimble mongoose which gives it bonus points.

  • Nolly

    What I like about him is that he’s useful as a creature even without the delirium.

  • kmk888

    Hm. 1 mana 1/1s that upgrade to 3/3s are historically playable, and the unupgraded version has deathtouch…

    Seems certainly good in Standard, and a Tarmogoyf deck with Mishra’s Bauble could run this in Modern.

    • Happy The Cat

      Naya Zoo to comeback maybe? it would be the version with sorcery token spells like outburst followed up with instant speed alpha strike spells. It would do my Nacatls good to get out of the trade binder for a bit.

  • Zhengyis .

    wow great creature

    • Bostorket

      Seems good, right?

  • Vizzerdrix

    Deathtouch nimble moongoose? *** yeah! i wanted a nimble mongoose functionally similiar card since i saw delerium

  • wwww

    With Hexproof instead of Deathtouch, we could have a Mongoose Horror instead.

    Still a great card. It fits well in Midrange deck : stall the game early to stay alive by taking down opponent’s creatures that attacks you and beat down the opponent later when the graveyard is filled with stuff you played earlier.

  • disqus_A12YL8TXnr

    A better Sedge Scorpion. I can dig it.

  • Benjamin Simonds

    This card basically reads “1 drop that completely nullifies Thing in the Ice.”


    call me idiot but i think this card has potetial in modern shadow Zoo, Jund or Abzan would love to have a 3/3 for 1 that can tradewith any creature, while they can have delirium very easy!
