At the beginning of your upkeep, each player reveals the top card of his or her library, loses life equal to that card's converted mana cost, then puts it into his or her hand.
4/4
Hey there sexy, looks like Dimir gets the only playable mythic.

3,000th post: September 5, 2010 4,000th post: March 24, 2012 Winner of the YMTC Ravnica War of the Guilds contest as guild Dimir.

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

Bob on a stick, fatty flier for 4. Interesting.
Standard Pauper! (play it on MTGO)
Well, they really want blue/black/(and white) control to happen...
Seems like this could speed up some games.
This seems really playable. A more resilient Bob that gives your opponent cards as well, but they likely haven't built their deck to survive losing life to their draws every turn. Not to mention they're getting beat in the face with a 4/4 flyer.
Love this guy! Art is cool too!

4/4 Flyer for 4 with a Bob effect......I like.

Bob on a stick, fatty flier for 4. Interesting.



Bob was already "on a stick." What does that even mean? "On a stick" is a term referring to determinate repeatable effects, due to Isochron Scepter ... aka, "the Stick."

This is a universal Bob: You bleed, you bleed, we all bleed. You just need to guarantee your stuff is cheeper. This card will be FUN in EDH.

"Possibilities abound, too numerous to count." "Innocent, unbiased observation is a myth." --- P.B. Medawar (1969) "Ever since man first left his cave and met a stranger with a different language and a new way of looking at things, the human race has had a dream: to kill him, so we don't have to learn his language or his new way of looking at things." --- Zapp Brannigan (Beast With a Billion Backs)
Bob for all! Oh wow! And a 4/4 flier for four to boot... what's not to love?
And mad props to Echo_Robin for beating me to this thread by 20secs!

Funny story: InQuest Magazine (I think it was InQuest) had an oversized Chaos Orb which I totally rooked someone into allowing into a (non-sanctioned) game. I had a proxy card that was a Mountain with "Chaos Orb" written on it. When I played it, my opponent cried foul: Him: "WTF? a Proxy? no-one said anything about Proxies. Do you even own an actual Chaos Orb?" Me: "Yes, but I thought it would be better to use a Proxy." Him: "No way. If you're going to put a Chaos Orb in your deck you have to use your actual Chaos Orb." Me: "*Sigh*. Okay." I pulled out this huge Chaos Orb and placed it on the table. He tried to cry foul again but everyone else said he insisted I use my actual Chaos Orb and that was my actual Chaos Orb. I used it, flipped it and wiped most of his board. Unsurprisingly, that only worked once and only because everyone present thought it was hilarious.

Hi guys! So, I'm a sort of returning player to Magic. I say sort of because as a child I had two main TCG's I liked. Yu-Gi-Oh, and Pokemon. Some of my friends branched off in to Magic, and I bought two pre-made decks just to kind of fit in. Like I said, Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon were what I really knew how to play. I have a extensive knowledge of deck building in those two TCG's. However, as far as Magic is concerned, I only ever used those two pre made decks. I know how the game is played, and I know general things, but now I want to get in the game for real. I want to begin playing it as a regular. My question is, are all cards ever released from the time of the inception of this game until present day fair game in a deck? Or are there special rules? Are some cards forbidden or restricted? Thanks guys, and I will gladly accept ANY help lol.

10/10. Amazing.
Speaks for itself. I wants it...
I've never been a fan of letting the opponents draw extra cards, to be blunt.

That, combined with this guy's lack of protection or any kind of immediate advantage, makes me think he's not going to be that great.
Well, they really want blue/black/(and white) control to happen...



This isn't a control card.

Bob already wasn't a control card.  Make the effect no longer one-sided and it becomes even less of a control card (the last thing control wants is for the opponent to trade life for cards).

This might be alright as an aggro card.  It kills pretty fast in spite of being a non-hasty creature.  And it beats up resto angels; that's a nice plus.

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.

Certainly interesting. The effect only on your upkeep makes it not symmetrical, which is really really nice.

At least with this guy, you're both guaranteed to get a card out of the deal, unlike Rites of Flourishing type effects.

Except when it dies to sorcery speed removal before it does anything
Standard Pauper! (play it on MTGO)
I could see this seeing play because it's just the right size. Brawls with restoration angel and lives, doesn't die to searing spear and can't be hit by selesnya charm. UB decks rarely want to close the game out quickly with damage, but if they do this guy probably has a home.
Triggers on your upkeep...
They get instants. You get the rest of your cards.
If discard is strong enough this might mean making them hurt for a card they need and then tossing it.
Hm. This could be useful.
Can't wait to set up the kill with Dimir Charm.

"on a stick", when referring to an effect, means that it's on a creature.  It is occasionally also used to refer to scepter, but typically only in cases referencing isochron scepter.  You can usually tell the meaning by context.  For example, this thread has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH ISOCHRON SCEPTER.

I hope all this helps you to see things in a greater light—and understand that Magic: the Gathering was really created by extraterrestials using Richard Garfield as a medium. The game itself reflects the socio-psycho realtivity between living beings, and the science that takes precedence over them—to define reality for them all (like telekinesis, weather, scientific reaction, phenomenon, ingenuity, how the brain works, etc.). I'd also bet there is an entity floating thousands of miles above us, looking down on the current state of game, shaking its fist like... "Wtf are you doing?! You're getting it all screwed up!". Awkward—to be evolved, and yet still subject to the ladder that is the concepts of the game. In this case, misconception, corruption, and deception. With the realities of each color becoming distorted (through oblivious designers), leading the game to reflect a false state of reality that warps the understanding that other people have about those things. For example, people thinking that white could be anything except pure good. This shouldn't be too far off though, I mean...Magic is designed based on reality after all, so that entity (those entities) should be subject to those things. Anyways, I guess when you're busy doing space stuff you can't always be around to ensure quality control. It's no wonder they choose Garfield, they're so much alike; that's exactly what happened to him and Magic.

hmmm your upkeep, you and everyone get to draw a card...

This will be horrible against control but awesome against aggro. 

I'm not exactly sure how to break this... maybe azorius charm their biggie on the end of turn? That's pretty much the only thing I can think of. You need to reveal the cards to the opponent too...

And on your upkeep, means you're actually GIVING them card advantage, the have an extra card on your turn.

Unless you dive into Orzhov, I don't see how you can afford the CA; you can kill yourself just with this creature, especially if they have thrags or something. I donno, seems really weak. A bit disappointed.

I think the ability might be the DOWNSIDE, seeing it's a 4/4 with flying for 4 mana. Would drawing lands be 0?
Use it along side Maralen of the Mornsong.

I believe the term is "on legs" when referring to a repeatable effect on a creature. On a stick refers to repeatable effects on artifacts, namely isochron scepter.

10/10. Amazing.
It seems bad as long as [CARD]Lingering Souls[/CARD] remains a card.

Bob on a stick, fatty flier for 4. Interesting.



Bob was already "on a stick." What does that even mean? "On a stick" is a term referring to determinate repeatable effects, due to Isochron Scepter ... aka, "the Stick."

This is a universal Bob: You bleed, you bleed, we all bleed. You just need to guarantee your stuff is cheeper. This card will be FUN in EDH.



"on a stick", when referring to an effect, means that it's on a creature.  It is occasionally also used to refer to scepter, but typically only in cases referencing isochron scepter.  You can usually tell the meaning by context.  For example, this thread has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH ISOCHRON SCEPTER.


Actually the technically correct term for an effect on a creature is "on legs" but most people just use " on a stick".

No, most people don't.
Cashgrab design. It rhymes with Bob, so spikes will feel obligated to get a playset.

Last time I frequented this forum (which was like in 2007). "on legs" was used quite a bit.

use this guy-> use dimir charm. Can use on yourself to give yourself a land (take no damage), or use it to make the opponent grab their biggest card and bleed them out. Seems silly. Plus... wont this lead to a decent amount of "draw" games if it is a tight match?

Regardless, seems pretty good, and will be a build-around

EDIT: he is basically suicide black-esque, which punishes the opponent for having a non-cheap deck. And dont forget people, you are in blue, the deck manipulation color and black the discard color. Even if there is no cards that allow you to manipulate in standard, other formats do (preordain, ponder, brainstorm, etc) to set up the top card, and of course cheap discard to negate the opponent extra card. Also- he can actually attack and do damage with evasion.
the Dark Confidant ability is symmetrical, people.  In blue, which suggests you probably have a higher curve than most decks that really liked running Confidant

While he wouldn't be a mythic, he would be a better card if you took away "Confidant for everybody" and left him as a 4/4 flyer for 4.  That would be a respectable, evasive clock that doesn't, I don't know, give the other guy his Dreadbore for free. (well, 2 life, but for a card that's basically free)

Unless u/b aggro that curves out at 4 becomes a thing in a major way, this is a rotten waste as I have come to expect from poor House Dimir.

VAMPIRE wizard...

Ahahaha...
I only noticed AFTER I thought to myself:
"This works with Vampire Nocturnus; He lets you see the top card at all times!"

DOUBLE synergy with the Nocturnus <3
You draw the cards on YOUR turn. They can't use theirs right away. That makes this playable, IMO.

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

but then... simics get their instant, gruuls get their combat trick, control gets their counterspells for cheap and aggro... well, you might hit them for 4 with hellrider, but you're also losing life, which to aggro means less life to chip off you with said hellrider the next turn.

Reanimator maybe will not like it, but this card isn't really useful in any way... other than maybe attacking them in the face at turn 4. But something about Gruul charm dealing 4 damage to fliers?

Dimir Charm so they get something that they can't immediately answer with, or take a lot of damage for.

Gruul Charm deals 3 to fliers.

Instants are plentiful in Magic.  I can use Unsummon, Murder, Dismember, Plummet, Terminate, or Path to Exile right away. Counterspell and all its ilk are also online immediatley, as are any combat tricks: Midnight Haunting, Giant Growth, or anything else that'll make you think twice before attacking with your shiny 4/4.

Anthos, could you fix that quote? I didn't say that second thing.

Yes, and a good 1/3 to 1/2 of the cards in your deck are lands. On average, at least 1/2 of the remaining cards are going to be sorcery speed.
Also, they have to leave mana open for your turn to be able to use their card. If they draw the sweetest instant, it doesn't matter unless they left up the mana to be able to cast it.

Double Edged Bob o-O; This card is very VERY hard to read in terms of playability. I could see it as a 1-of in UB Control or Midrange.

Tell me please why would you ever play this in a control deck? I'm dying to know.

it's more playable in a control deck; you lose little with all your low cost instants while gaining card advantage.
