RCotD #120

Random Card of the Day #120:

Kavu Howler - 4GG
Creature - Kavu
When Kavu Howler enters the battlefield, reveal the top four cards of your library. Put all Kavu cards revealed this way into your hand and the rest on the bottom of your library in any order.

Initial thoughts:

Yes, I've been ignoring my responsibilities lately on Snow Covered Swamp. It's Spring Break and I've been on a bit of vacation. Apologies for me having to post three cards to make up for the losses.

Kavu Howler is actually a part of a cycle. I own the Enlistment Officer one but I traded away my Grave Defiler.

The other important part is that it says all Kavu cards. This means it is not restricted to only Kavu creatures, but also Kavu Tribal cards. It's a shame there aren't any Kavu tribal cards but luckily there are Changeling Tribal cards, meaning it works with the entire cycle!

However, there aren't any Green Tribal Changeling cards. So you may be limited to only Kavu creatures, which means you might splash Red, which means Blades of Velis Vel might be a legit addition.

But those are cards that go with it. Kavu tribes aren't that powerful. Or at least in comparison to other tribes like Warrior, Soldier, Elf, Zombie, etc. it's also a fairly high cost for just a 4/5. I know it can net in card advantage, but I think it would have been a lot better if it had trample on it at least. Probably would have been amazing if you got a good Draft deck, though. 3/5
