Dinrova Horror |
Creature - Horror (U)
When ~ enters the battlefield, return target permanent to its owner's hand, then that player discards a card.
"Welcome to the Dimir Public Offices. Not responsible for death or loss of property. Basement off-limits."
-Sign outside Dinrova Building
4/4

Oh look, Recoil with a 4/4 body and funny flavor text. I dig it.
It's fine I guess for limited.

I'm glad the Dimir are advertising their position. Such an on-flavor thing to do.

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?

6 is expensive... but mind this... target "PERMANENT".

Chain this with deadeye navigator and blink this repeatedly and bounce all their lands back to their hands. then discarding them promply.
Recoil stapled to a 4/4? I definitely like this one.
What is the Power/Toughness?
i wouldn't mind this being a 3/3 with evasion or something but as is it's alright ish.
Perfectly reasonable creature for limited
Insanely powerful card for limited

Pure sarcasm, I assume.  I'm not huge on flavor, but this flavor text makes me sad as well.

It almost seems more like the note was a prank. Probably Krenko.
well, synergy with voidwalk (cipher blink spell)
I play for fun
Good creature though the flavor text seems a bit weird.
The Dimir do exist as a public guild is my understanding.

A perfectly innocent guild devoted to record-keeping and the distribution of the news of the day.  Why, we'd never hurt anybody, we're just a harmless guild full of couriers and merchants.
Destroy target permanent huh? Definitely a Limited all-star.

I could also see this being good in edh.
Brutal with the Cypher that blinks creatures
My first thought was



My second thought was Wait, Dimir has a public anything?

I think the flavor text is intended to be tongue and cheek: based on the art, Dinrova is clearly in the bowels of the undercity.  That sign might as well have "PS: If you're reading this, you're already dead" tacked on.

"Enjoy your screams, Sarpadia - they will soon be muffled beneath snow and ice."

Maybe a constructed playable?  Provides both an immediate impact on the board and card advantage.  Might be a mana too expensive, but it's worth considering.

The art's supposed to be the basement referred to on the sign, and the sign's clearly noted as existing outside a building.

This: Plus I believe they also run libraries and work as archivists. Which is awesome because it gives them information about what other people curious are about.
My rug deck may have become bug. Or bur....

Wiat, they're librarians now? I mean, I know in America, librarians were among the first to oppose the Patriot Act, but still...
