(RAVNICA) Applied Trans-Temporal Studies
The card was leaked in Spanish. What you're seeing is the translation fotoshoped over it.
By the way, the flavour text is something like "All I ask is for faith, loyalty, obedience, trust and a complete and absolute devotion".
What's the source for the card?

I... like it - seems like plenty of ways to abuse this
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.
I'm not really sure what to think of this one; I can think of all kinds of silly combos of pump and ping that take about 4-5 colours, but nothing I've thought of is terribly practical.So...what's the alternative? Play it, and hope they attack into it? I'm.........not actually convinced that's a good plan. Unlike Dreadbore if they don't want their permanent removed they have lots of options like attacking with evasion creatures, removing the blocker with something like detain or Tragic Slip or any variety of non-red removal, to...not attacking if it's not needed (for example, if they plan to win by using a planeswalker ultimate). Or they can just only attack into it when they have untapped for Restoration Angel.I'm not as sold on this in constructed as others seem to be. Of course, it will be good if there turns out to be a practical combo for it, but running it without a combo just seems...easy to play around.
For early OR late-game shenanigans...Revenge of the Hunted. Personally, I'd go for late-game, since it'd pretty much be a win-con card to pull while this guy's out. Your opponent might not be caring about his board presence as much as they would if he's out earlier....likely easier to hardcast RotH later on, too, if the Miracle draw had bad timing (opening hand), and winds up getting stuck in your hand.EDIT: AND it's a neat way to clear a path for that Orzhov creature that got spoiled just before this.
Ooooh, yeah - Ring of Xathrid belongs on this guy's finger, permanently.
getting blocked by multiple guys lets you blow up multiple permanents, correct? (until he's killed)

FAAAAAAAKEWe'll ignore the fact for now that the flavor text and rules text are in TWO DIFFERENT LANGUAGES --- just look at the text itself in the rules, someone wrote that in from a digital program on a blank field.
