RCotD #136

Random Card of the Day #136:

Skyclaw Thrash - 3UR
Artifact Creature - Viashino Warrior
Whenever Skyclaw Thrash attacks, flip a coin. If you win the flip, Skyclaw Thrash gets +1/+1 and gains flying until end of turn.

Initial thoughts:

Man, I hate coin flipping cards. Or even cards that have a random factor to them. For example I would be much more likely to play Faithless Looting over Desperate Ravings because of the discarding at random. But Desperate Ravings actually nets in card advantage.

Cards I hate:
Sorcerer's Strongbox
Goblin Bangchuckers

I'm pretty sure R&D is just creating coin flip cards because older cards had them anyways. They are definitely trying to cut down on randomness factors and get this game more strategy-based anyways.

It's at least a 5-cost 4/4 that can potentially win drafts. That said, it is out of bolt range, and becomes a 5/5 flying crocodileman if it the coin flip happens correctly. So it is a 5-cost 5/5 flier at best. That's pretty good--but it's unreliable. 2/5
