    A mythic Disperse should put the card into your hand, especially if it is named "Petty Theft".

    i'm not really a fan of its name. what's it borrowing? the name implies theft not bounce.

    Don't get me wrong, the card is good, the flavor is just off.


    Yeah the name and the effect are massively incongruous. I wonder if he did not originally steal artifacts for a turn.
    Quote from SavannahLion »
    I missed the part with Flash, I was just disappointed with the "your opponent controls" part.

    I guess it's OK as a defensive combat trick or to get a Planeswalker off the board but not much else. I would happily pay an extra blue mana or all blue if I could target any nonland permanent OR target my opponents lands as well.

    Well, it does say petty theft. So she feels bad and gives it back to its owner!

    Also, with Adventure in this set, I understand they needed the opponents-only clause. Otherwise you could bounce your own creatures and Adventure them again. Without the opponents-only clause, Realm-Cloaked Giant and Brazen Borrower would probably be really good friends.

    Bouncing lands for 1U a la Boomerang and Eye of Nowhere is horribly unbalanced. And then you get a 3/1 evasive beater after stopping your opponent's T2 tempo? Unless black got Sinkhole again, I can't imagine they'd allow a 2 mana land bounce in standard any time soon.


    Cant bounce lands. Re-evaluation needed

    Too many mechanics, not enough exploration of those mechanics.

    The equipment has gorgeous art but is kind of assy

    The goblin is really solid, especially with greven

    If evolving wilds is a common, and prismatic vista is a rare... why is this not an uncommon?

    as for it being mythic... it doesn't feel mythic at all. it feels like a card that someone said omg this needs to be mythic because it MIGHT be bounced and recast, alternatively someone else said this needs to be mythic because it stands out as a good card in a sea of bad ones and we need a lotto card to sell this set.

    either way... bad form r&d. bad form.

    i like it a lot, its a little winmorey, but also isn't. i can get it out very quickly in a lot of different decks, and at that point its ramp, and draw.

    ...its crap. cards that give cards to your opponent like this, especially in formats with cheap removal, are crap. it won't see play. especially when it dies to shock.

    How does Outside the Game work in EDH again? I feel like it doesn't.


    Since the rules committee pussyfoots around making real rules to standardize the format... it depends on your group

    Some wont allow it to do anything, some allow a wish board, some let you get whatever you can get your hands on

    As for the card... bulk fodder. It gives the impression of being omg strong, but in practice wont be.

    I just dont find food tokens interesting or innovative, as a result i dont find these cards interesting or innovative. To me they feel forced. A mediocre means to support a mediocre mechanic

    I hate parasitic cards like these.

    I think this is one of the more solid ones. Not that cost effective considering you have to lock up 5 mana, but sometimes you want to sit there and be reactionary... and ultimately end up with nothing to react to. Thats where this will shine.

    The another clause kills it for me, but it wouldve been a little busted if it was any attacking creature. At least, at that cmc. Wouldve been a lot more fun if it could target itself though,

    This one... i feel is overrated. The cost is just too damn high.

    5 (you gotta tap it too so 5) mana is a lot, even late game, to leave open just to.. scry 2.

    That said theres about 8 edh decks i want to at least try it out in, but im positive itll never be activated and will be cut for a basic instead.

    Fantastic with that brawl commander. Mediocre a lot of other places. That said i really like white getting these conditional digs. White needs it.

    No reason not to run this in a variety of edh builds sporting red. Has potential in standard and isnt bad pushing stuff through in limited, this ones pretty okay
