There's an old joke that adding the text "draw a card" to anything will make it playable. By that logic, Brainbite should become a staple, and it would if it weren't still just a little expensive for what it does. Gotta love that art, though.

Constructed: 2/5
Casual: 2/5
Multiplayer: 2/5
Limited: 2/5
The Missing Linc

-Balding for just over 5 years
-Playing MTG for just over 10


Lobotomy just got an upgrade. Now it is a cantrip on top of the prior ability. This is a real nice addition to a card that has always seen love in any casual room. Not a top pick in limited but if I get one in draft it will go in my deck. The problem with the old lobotomy was that it provided strategic advantage but not card advantage. This does both.

Constructed: 2.5
Casual: 3
Limited: 3
Multiplayer: 2






Constructed: To make someone discard any card and draw a card for yourself is a great deal. Four mana not to bad. Good thing is says 'opponent' or it could help Unearth decks.


Casual & Multiplayer: Okay card for budget decks.


Limited: This can be a great card for Alara Reborn only drafts. For the other limited formats it is okay. Being commons makes it a very solid pick.


Overall a good common.


Constructed: 3

Casual: 2


Limited: 4
