Quote from dschumm »Dear wizards,
Chandra's Phoenixwas cool for cube 5 years ago but now...
Flamewake phoenix never quite got there but was cheap to buy back
Phoenix of Ash shows that you know a 3 drop can/should do more than 2 damage
Lightning Phoenix is almost perfect but you forgot that my adding downsides to a card you could exchange them with upsides
So next, pretty please can we get a 2 mana Phoenix?

Because maybe those cards didn't show up in the draft. Or because you might not draw those cards during the game. And maybe you draft and draw this card and can play it to execute your gameplan.

Quote from ELPsteel »In reanimator decks, this will on average be better than a looter. They can remove your looter while it's summoning sick, but with this guy you get as many guaranteed discards as you want when it resolves. Also hits for 2, so it's like an upgraded Looter Il Kor with upside.
Edit: not quite Looter Il Kor because of the upkeep activation cost. Still a great card though and I will be running it
