Grimoire Thief

This 2/2 for UU not only provides a solid attacker, but a perfect segway between Merfolk and Rogues. Rogues appreciate aggresion and attacking, while Merfolk like to be tapped. This thing can swing away efficiently to trigger its milling ability, and if need be can sacrifice itself to counter anything it's stolen off the top of your deck. It also fits excellently into a Merfolk milling deck, since tapping it with Drowner of Secrets means four off the top.

Constructed- 4
Casual- 4
Limited- 3

Grimoire Thief

This looks a very good creature to me. Not only is it very efficient statistics-wise (something you don't see too often in blue), but the ability to make your opponent lose cards essentially randomly from their library can be very disruptive. The counterspell ability is just a bonus. It's probably better than Silvergill Adept in Merfolk decks, and it can even go in non-Merfolk decks with a heavy blue component.

Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 3/5
Limited: 2/5

Grimoire Thief

            This card could be a great part of any Merfolk build. It has great synergy with a number of Merfolk cards, including Merrow Reejerey, Lord of Atlantis/Aquitect’s Will, and Drowner of Secrets. However, it probably won’t be enough to turn Merfolk into a competitive deck.


- Constructed: 3

            A good card in an average deck.

- Casual: 2

            Mill in casual? Not so much...

- Limited: 2

In limited, it becomes more difficult to get the other Merfolk this card needs to
