Incursion Specialist
Creature - Human Wizard (Uncommon)
Whenever you cast your second spell each turn, Incursion Specialist gets +2/+0 until end of turn and is unblockable this turn.
1/3
"Work for the Dimir again? That depends. Tell me more about this maze."

I want to know more about this maze, too!
This cards made me really sad. At least its cost is really agressive.

Maybe it could work as a cipher enabler, but the situtaion it will work are not easy to come by. 
I play for fun
Not bad, in my opinion. A lot of the time it will end up as a 3/3 Unblockable for 2 mana at uncommon. Even aside from that, 1/3 isn't a terrible 2-mana body.
Came for the flavor, stayed for the game. (10/4/2013: Discovered that I suppose I most closely resemble a Vorthos player, right after my odd obsession with making hyper-budget but effective decks and right before being a Johnny)
I wish this trigger was non-combat based, so at least it could trigger off Cipher..

Good with nice flavor.
doesn't work with cipher, yet is uncommon. honestly if they're going for cipher at least make cards that synergizes with it...
PLEASE, tell us more about this maze!

Has this set really given us any story so far?
Seems fine to me.

Unfortunately no.

It does seem strange that they print something that is so clearly a Dimir card meant to go well with Cipher (unblockable), but when it is triggered by cipher it's incredibly pointless because he's already done damage.

I guess if you have cipher on a first-striker and attack with this guy and the cipher'd first-striker, you get the +2/+0 if you cast something in pre-combat mainphase? The unblockability is useless at that point but I suppose it's nice that there is a way for cipher to trigger the ability and have it matter.
what's the cost of bounce and crearures with comes into play effects these days?

Oh cool they're updating gatherer.
Terrible.  You're going to be playing control in this color 85%+ of the time.  When are you going to consistantly cast 2 spells on a turn when he's already out?  That would mean you can't really have/hold bounce or kill effect cards...all you could run are other cheap creatures and card draw.  If you could do it, you'd be out of cards in 2-3 turns anyways.

And even if you DO manage to trigger him....3 damage with no other trigger of his own?  Who gives a f***?
