i didn't think we were gonna see cards with mechanics on them :P 

truth be told, do you think people will run this in populate decks? i mean druid's deliverance offers fog for one more mana...

A 1 sided fog 
Token decks only. But has possibilities with bigger tokens... Could make cards like Stolen Identity and Cackling Counterpart have more value. Maybe.

I wish it was :gwm:. Populate is as much green as it is white, no?

That's cheap for a free angel token from Gost.

too bad it's a sorcery and GoST angel tokens die at the end of combat

Exava, Lavinia, tajic and Varolz all had their guilds keywords. there is also the simic dude with evolve that puts a counter on other stuff whe he evolves. Not to mention being told they had to make fuse simple since they already and 10 keywords in the set (and being told all 10 would return back before spoilers of RTR). I mean  really it was kinda obvious.

As for the card: It's nice. Good tempo, sort of. 3 mana for two 3/3's is pretty good from what I hear. If you have a token it makes another body cheaper then they can remove it, which is always nice. But you have to have that token first, and theres the rub. Not to mention a couple other utility spells that populate fairly cheap and have added benefits. A nice simple card, that I really wish was named populate.

meh...sorcery.

outclassed by instants such as: Sundering Growth, Rootborn Defenses, and Druid's Deliverance
Agree, it should be 1 cmc WG instant or maybe sorcery speed and cantrip
This falls under the catagory of: "common is common"


Nothing unexpected here, I do agree, I wish it was instant, but it is not so bah. 
Feels more green than white, but I like the card.

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

A bit of a gamble in Limited, which is really the only place for it.  You'll have to pick it in pack one, when (presumably) most of the good token stuff will be in pack three.
Why is this a Sorcery. What purpose does that serve?
Has there ever been a Sorcery with one word on it? This is cool for that if nothing else.

So very meh

Making a copy of a token on your turn???????? Comprehension, people.

And I like this card. It's a common and it's cheap and it does a useful thing. A 3/3 for two? How about a 3/3 for one right after that?

It's to prevent you from putting out two 5/5 wurms out as instants would be my guess. Still has a place in my decks, makes hordes VERY quickly.

Agreed.

If this had been an Instant I would have played it. If it had populated twice I would have played it. But when there are other choices that do more, I would rather play them instead.

I think that's rather the point, it DOES populate twice for the same cost. If you don't need to fog, or destroy immediately you'll just be holding on to those cards. You could play two reflections for the same price and not have to worry about it.

Im not usually worried about a difference of 1 mana when populating, since you alreadyneed mana to be making tokens to begin with (its not like this needs to be played on a curve as a 1 drop). What does matter is the number of cards used, and the timing restrictions.

This is fine. Would you rather have some terribly overcosted, unplayable populate effect?
Standard Pauper! (play it on MTGO)

At least make it an instant.
Just for that, you get this:

I think we have a winner for shortest rules text ever.

CURRENT EDH DECKS: Sek'kuar | Kraj | Teysa | Wort | Purphoros | Varolz | Reaper King | Rakdos | Isperia | Ultimus | Iroas | Macar | Roon | Marath | Kruphix | Karametra | Marchesa

I think we have a winner for shortest rules text ever.



Just the shortest in a noncreature.  For creatures, you have creatues with no rules text whatsoever, but even considering those that have rules text, "Haste" (as on Goblin Chariot), and "Flash" (as on King Cheetah) is less text than "Populate".

FWIW, the old record for noncreatures was Reach Through Mists.
See I was expecting something like this for proliferate

Seems pretty unassuming until you see someone make a 5/5 Trampling Wurm for and leave mana open for tricks/counters/more creatures/etc...

I enjoy Cynthia Sheppard's art.  
MaRo got his one word card text.

Friggin reminder text ruining it.

That.

But you can't argue that it's elegant and intuitive design. I just wish it was printed in RTR instead of taking up valuable space in DGM....
