RCotD #69

Random Card of the Day #69:

Homarid Warrior - 4U
Creature - Homarid Warrior
{U}: Homarid Warrior gains shroud until end of turn and doesn't untap during your next untap step. Tap Homarid Warrior.

Initial thoughts:

A 5-cost 3/3 with the ability to gain shroud. As much as I like having on-demand shroud, that last sentence completely ruins the card. The doesn't untap clause doesn't help it's case either.

There really isn't much to say about this card. All you have to do is read it once and see how useless it is. Maybe even a redirect ability like Quicksilver Dragon would be better.

How to fix this card:

Simple, take out the tapping clauses from it, reduce it's cost. Unless you want it to be completely absurd with recasting from graveyards as long as you control a creature with islandwalk--or other ridiculous things. Let's keep it simple.

Fixed Homarid Warrior - 3U
Creature - Homarid Warrior
{U}: Fixed Homarid Warrior gains shroud until end of turn.

Well it was a common, so I don't know what to expect. I'm tempted to give it a 1/5 but I could imagine it being a decent pick in limited.

Limited: 2/5
Constructed: 1/5
