RCotD #85

Random Card of the Day #85:

Lu Xun, Scholar General - 2UU
Legendary Creature - Human Soldier
Whenever Lu Xun, Scholar General deals damage to an opponent, you may draw a card.

Initial thoughts:

A better Thieving Magpie. Yeah sure, it's legendary and can't block fliers but it is effectively unblockable and gives you an additional draw each turn.

In case you didn't know Hosemanship functions identically to Shadow and similar to Flying (with the exception of Reach) where only a creature with the the keyword can block another like it--and it's got a higher toughness than something like Archivist.

A really good card. I'd play him over Thieving Magpie if only for the evasion. It is also important to note that it's when he does any damage to an opponent not just combat damage. That is you were going to do something bizarre like Fire Whip. Still a great card. 4/5
