Gotta say, I really enjoy this one.
Now that's a clever twist on looting.  This seems like a pretty good pick in limited.

I can't imagine that's actually good.

Check out my twitch.tv stream below where I play magic online limited queues. Don't forget to follow if you enjoy what I'm presenting to show your support!

Amazing. It lets you store things away until you need them, and draws you cards in the meantime? plays around discard too, so cool.

In limited it's amazing. Ignoring everything but the first ability, it's a 3-toughness looter for 3. That's good in limited.


The other abilities are just cute-ish. Fun, but... not really at all in keeping with why it'll be sweet to have about in limited.

Neat. Not great.

first time I read it, I thought it was Bane alley hooker.

that aside, nice looter-type card.  
Eh.
this works well with whispering madness... 
also she's really cute >.<
Love the art. Card itself is just weird, but the interactions are interesting. Still, the art is enough for me.
Looters are always welcome in limited, and this one is especially good. Not only does it give you the option of getting cards back if you find you need them later on, but it also doesn't give your opponent any information about your deck.
seems anti discard in a way, store what u want away for later with the caveat of drawing into something better... if it doesnt get killed beforehand
seems like an alright card, i mean a looter is a looter.

QFT.  I remember initially people were upset by Rummaging Goblin being strickly worse than Merfolk Looter.  Then they realized that in limited, any looter is still a looter. 
This isn't even a looter. It's an Archivist that goes half the speed.

But it has a much nicer body.

pun intended?
Makes Misthollow Griffin better but still not good enough.
This is one if my favourite cards in the set. This is really potent.
Why are people comparing this to looters?

I mean, I get the basic premise of the assumption. "Draw a card, Exile a card" does sound a lot like looting, but unlike looting, this actually gives you CA since you get the cards you exile back (albeit slowly). The only situation where looting is superior to this ability is when looking to specifically dump things into the yard (Flashback, etc).

I just wish it didn't have to tap a second time to get the card back.

Combos with Misthollow Griffin in standard! In all seriousness though, she's a good card with an ability better than looting for non-madness, graveyard based shenanigan decks.

Hehe, same here.

It's a nice new take on the typical Looter flavor, but I doubt this is gonna be used much in Limited....

Well this sure is interesting. A bit vulnerable though.

Agreed. This card is pretty sweet. Her 3 defense should keep her around for a little while at the very least. However she is a target and will probably have everything and the kitchen sink tossed at her.

Heh heh heh heh heh.  Solid.  ;)

I think I'm remebering this wrong but, if I use "Bane..." and she goes to the graveyard. Then play a second one, I don't get to look at or return the already removed cards?
Interesting Looter variant. Seems pretty cool.

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.

That's correct. When a Bane Alley Broker is on the battlefield, you may look at and return the cards exiled with that particular Bane Alley Broker. Blinking it also breaks the connection, as it comes back as a new permanent.


this is card draw for 2 , very good

i like the text plating
It's good because you can get rid of dead cards in your hand like lands and to avoid the opponent from eating important cards in your hand with Appetite for Brains or Duress.
When Gotham lies in ashes you have my permission to get this card back.
Nice looting trick.
