My response...es were specifically directed at limited because this card is too bad to be usable in standard.
1. Massive amounts of creature kill or bounce
2. Sacrificing of card advantage
3. Loading your decks with otherwise unusable cards
4. Mass of artifact kill
I don't see what use this has in standard with the above being relevant.

Quote from Tawnos »My comments were directed more toward casual and block decks. I don't really know how you could assume I was talking about standard constructed at all.

Quote from Tawnos »Nice! Besides the obvious Myojin/Shoal uses it also provides for an instant creature when you're in a pinch.

Instant - Arcane (U)
Destroy target attacking creature with power 3 or less.
It's a surprise, it's Arcane, and it's cheap white creature kill. I think it kills about half the creatures out there, on average. Decent!
Quote from rancored_elf »Slumbering Tora -
:2mana:, Discard a Spirit or Arcane card: Slumbering Tora becomes an X/X artifact creature until end of turn, where X is the discarded card's perverted mana cost.
Chimeric Staff? This is a little cheaper, but requires you to empty your hand... although it has the potential to be nice and meaty if you discard a Myojin. I don't like it, but I bet some people will. You perverts.
