One of the strongest of the retrace cards,
Spitting Image will effectively trump any bomb
creature your opponent has, by giving you
multiple copies of it.Especially effective with Lieges, be they
your own or your opponent's.The only real downside is that at six
mana, it takes a while to get online.Once you do get it, however, you can
fairly safely discard all further lands you draw
to retrace it, as you likely won't need more
lands than that.
I could imagine a niche for this card in
constructed sideboards, mainly because it
destroys legendary creatures; and sometimes the
best answer to an Archon of Justice or Demigod
of Revenge is one of your own. The fact that
it's reusable is just gravy. It reminds me of
Followed Footsteps, only more mana-intensive. I
like Followed Footsteps.
Too slow, too expensive. WOW copy a creature for
6. Only good thing about it is Legend removal.
This is a good card for casual, but everybody
uses either Clone or some other way of making a
copy of a creature. There is this crazy goblin
that is more fun to play with.
Great card for draft or sealed deck. Just have
to wait for the right opportunity to play it. It
is a Sorcery so you have to be careful when you
Overall an ok card that has the fun factor with
the Retrace ability. If it were an instant it
would have been ten times better.
Monday - Spitting Image
A good card in theory, and it certainly has the
potential to be very powerful as you just churn
out token after token of [insert powerful
creature here], but in practice I think this is
way, way too mana intensive to be played. Maybe
if a more traditional build of U/W control pops
up, but not in the faerie decks.
In limited, however, I think this will be a bit
more useful. You can copy your bomb, or copy
their bomb, and reuse it by pitching extra
lands. I'd take it if I was in either of its
