Put a 1/1 blue and black Horror creature token with flying onto the battlefield.
Cipher


Shame our guild will be shafted on flavor text due to Cipher's massive bulk.
Oh, and before you ask, you can cipher onto the token.

Voidwielder certainly isn't getting any worse.

Snapcaster Mage is the best card of all time. How do you deal?

This definitely doesn't mean what you think it means.
I was referring to the painting The Treachery of Images.
I know.

I'm not a dimir fan, but god do I love cipher. 

This on invisible stalker/tormented soul is nice, free 1/1 flyer every turn has potential.

It seems Cipher cards will be overcosted. This should really be 1:U::B: at sorcery speed, when we have both Midnight Haunting and Lingering Souls at 3.

You can Cipher onto the token?! o.0

That just makes it so much better.

I'm already assuming this will be my favorite card of the set. I just can't imagine a card that just hits all my buttons just right like this one.

Well, if the tokens were Vampires and looked like mini-Moroii maybe, but that's just being selfish.

That is cool... Still, not very relevant. 1/1 that poops out a 1/1 each turn sometimes, big deal.
Standard Pauper! (play it on MTGO)

You can encode onto the token.

YOU CAN ENCODE ONTO THE TOKEN.

I have no idea why this makes me so happy, but it does. Best card ever.
Rules Nut Advisor
probably a common though, too expensive
Awesome card, though I'm kinda bummed that it's a sorcery. End of turn this, encode onto token, untap, encode something else on the token would be so cool.

make an evasive dude that makes evasive dudes, seems situational but potentially decently strong.
A bit expensive but with the possibilities Cipher offer it can be worth it.


Wonder who he's calling though.

Eh.
Next thing you will tell me Browbeat is bad.

Staticaster.

You are both rational and emotional. You value creation and discovery, and feel strongly about what I create. At best, you're innovative and intuitive. At worst, you're scattered and unpredictable.
Ok I'm not as excited as a lot of you seem to be.  This card is overcosted.
wheres the card art?
I play for fun
In the Standard format, players have cheaper blockers, play flash blockers, or efficient removal.

Should be interested in limited, though.
This is very decent in limited. Not so much out in the constructed world.
It's worth noting that you can draft this card without the influence of staticaster or electrickery for quite a while.

I'm guessing there will be some kind of black "all creatures/all your opponents' creatures get -X/-X" card in Gatecrash.  If not, this card becomes much better.

Of course it is. It's not really a very good card, though almost certainly playable in Limited. There's absolutely no reason this card should excite me.

It's still awesome.

Sometimes it is worth a laugh to just look at the difference between limited and constructed.

Meh this mechanic has not impressed me so far.

SwDS: 2/5

Four mana to put four 1/1 fliers into play eventually, if you connect with a creature. I'm not saying it's a bad card, I'm just saying you shouldn't be running this with Doubling Season. You probably have much better options in GUB. 
Khyber is a dark and dangerous place, full of flame and smoke, where ever stranger things lie dormant.
xD Encode the keyrune, make chump blockers, ???, profit.

this is nice for control, which is the angle that Dimir is going for. You put it on dimir keyrune and use it to poop out a chump-blocking spirit every turn.
Man being able to cipher onto the token makes it feel like they're just trying to be too clever.

Fridge Brilliance there: This way, no one finds out more about House Dimir than is necessary.
