I think I like it better if it has to return another creature, not itself. As-is it's way too easy to just start a draw engine going. Forcing you to return a different creature makes you work a little harder but it's still a cool card with other ETB effects.
Agreed. And then you think, "Ah, but if I had two of these..."
Whispers of the Muse with a 3/3 body for 2 fewer mana? Plus it's a creature, so it works with Mimic Vat, Birthing Pod, Heartless Summoning, etc? Yes, please. This is an interesting card in that it's probably too good but it's also unlikely to be a 4-of in any deck.
You can change the "probably" with "OBVIOUSLY".My premier Commander deck is Maelstrom Wanderer-ETB Abusing, and in there it would be uber-broken.This should probably have "another" clause, in addition to costing more and/or being smaller. And I would absolutely run it in my deck nonetheless.That said, it's a pretty fun card, and an interesting one.
Yeva obviously likes this.
