    Yay we get some looting for Pirates. I kind of wish it was a 3 mana 3/2 but since it loots pretty much every turn I can’t really complain

    • Chris Tomsky

      Yea, or give it menace or something. Why does everything feel like its so expensive in this set? 4, 5, 6, even 7 mana?

      • Aurore

        Treasure Tokens probably.

      • Edward

        Well Dinsoaurs have been the main thing that is expensive which makes sense. This set also feels very Commander oriented which means high costed creatures won’t matter as much. In general though I don’t think the cmc on most cards are too much higher than average but the dinosaurs are throwing it of since 3cmc is the lowest so far

      • Santuli

        Yea, probably the Treasure mechanic. It’s a lot of extra ramp and mana fixing, so I suspect to balance that, a lot of things are more expensive than normal.

      • Hedronal

        Dinosaurs are big and thus expensive, and the treasure and explore mechanics help to cover that sort of thing. Redundant with other replies, but I wanted both parts in one place.

  • Pandancules

    The sequencing of text on this card is nauseating.

  • Chaospyke

    I’m sensing a much better use of the Raid mechanic than in khans.
    Hoping for a mono Black lifegain or mono black opponent sac with a raid.
