2/1s with haste for two are always cool.

pretty nice beater for limited.
Lol

Only when they reanimate. Seriously. All of the useful 2+/X for 2 with haste cards are reanimators.

The art is kind of cool.
Art is nice, flavor is nice. Overall, not spectacular, but not terrible, either.

Please, let's not sacrifice clear, helpful rules guidelines in favour of catering to the delicate sensibilities of the few who have problems with the ascetics of anything other than what they are familiar with.

Just a quick note on the MMORPG as an insult comparison... MMORPGs, raking in money by the dumptruck full. Many options, tons of fans across many audiences, massive resources allocated to development. TTRPGs, dying product. Squeaking out an existence that relys on low cost. Fans fit primarily into a few small demographics. R&D budgets small, often rushed to market and patched after deployment. You're not really making much of an argument when you compare something to a MMORPG and assume people think that means bad. Lets face it, they make the money, have the audience and the budget. We here on this board are fans of TTRPGs but lets not try to pretend none of us play MMORPGs.

Telling someone to move over a few feet is magical now? :| I weep for this generation.
Given the laziness and morbid obsesity amongst D&Ders, being able to convince someone to get on their feet, do some heavy exercise, and use their words to make them be healthier must seem magical.

It's good enough that I could maybe picture it showing up in constructed if there was really nothing better at those colours and you just needed to fill out your mana curve.  Kinda like how some pretty trashy 2-drops have been played in zombies.  Seems unlikely, though.

Cats land on their feet. Toast lands peanut butter side down. A cat with toast strapped to its back will hover above the ground in a state of quantum indecision.

Was it really too much to ask for for this to be 2/2?


notice your cars are gold, i.e. more restirctive in cost (only 1 way to pay for it). This is hybrid (3 ways to pay for it). The gold versions should be slightly better.

Slightly better is +Vigilance, a 2/2 Haste is par.
As MC said though, slightly underpowered might still be good enough for Satanic Sligh to work.
zombie would have been nice, but human is actually a relevant subtype in current B/R aggro (makes for a tasty treat).
I would prefer this as a 2/2, otherwise it is weak to tokens. But I'll take what I can get.

One of those is Just a 2/2 haste for , hence why I said slightly worse. Not expecting it to make splashes, but not unusable.

It is still weak to tokens: we already know of 2/2 vigilence token in the set, that can be flashed out in a few ways.

You can't really call that weak to tokens, both cost and a card. By weak to tokens I mean trading with something like half a Krenko's Command.

if they have one of those 2/2 knights this dies to half an Eyes to the Skies (or half of any populating card). And we don't know if other cards are making other knight makers, or how many rhino makers, or if the land is the only 8/8 maker, or what other tokens are in the set. And 2/2 wolves are still being thrown around from innistrad.

Needed Unleash. Although that'd probably push it to uncommon at least.
Not amazing, but certainly playable.  I'd consider running it in BR aggro...
Read this as Rakdos Shed Freak and was like "Why is this guy so freaky aboot his shed?"

I love the flavor text.



It refers to the rejection of dualism, which included anatomy lessons with teasingly saying "Can you find the soul?"

Why no Unleash?



Assumedly because a 3/2 Haste for 2 at common would break limited something rotton.

But we'd finally have a constructed-viable unleash-er. Holding out for the 1/1 double strike unleash two drop.

I read this as "Rakdos speed freak".. 

BR needs good 1-2cc creatures atm, and while its nice to have a hasty creature that can be cast by either monoB  and monoR, I'm not sure if this is good enough yet. I will definitely consider using these though.

Not bad. I would use it if there was no better two drop for Rakdos.
