RCotD #79

Random Card of the Day #79:

Hipparion - 1W
Creature - Horse
Hipparion can't block creatures with power 3 or greater unless you pay {1}.

Initial thoughts:

Honestly a terrible card. I just look at it and wonder why a 2-cost 1/3 creature has to have a drawback. I really don't think it was necessary. I mean there's already Temple Acolyte, which is decent, but particularly strong against aggro or swarm decks. Kithkin Zealot could prove to be more powerful in certain situations.

Even a vanilla 1/3 creature for two mana would be playable in Limited; but because of his drawback, you can't chump block a Lightning Elemental without paying mana--its really unnecessary.

I'm not sure if this cards needs to be fixed. There are enough 2 cost 1/3s in the game that you can safely ignore this one without ever seeing it again. Ever. 1/5
