RCotD #141

Random Card of the Day #141:

Soliton - 5
Artifact Creature - Construct
{U}: Untap Soliton.

Initial thoughts:

I was never a fan of Horseshoe Crab or Crab Umbra for that matter, so I guess you can say I'm not particularly excited about this card.

I mean it's fairly obvious with cards like Fire Whip (well I guess if you are in blue you would have to use Hermetic Study) but untapping creatures most of the time seems like a waste.

Okay, yes. In draft, you put Heavy Arbalest on it and he can machine-gun down everything your opponent controls. I always put Heavy Arbalest on infect creatures whenever possible, but that was just me.

It gives it pseudo vigilance, and allows a finite number of tap effects provided you have the mana. It's not particularly game breaking but it does have it's uses. I'm tempted to give this a 2/5 but it has so much combo ability that I don't care for too much, so I'll give it a 3/5.
