RCotD #157

Random Card of the Day #157:

Dodecapod - 4
Artifact Creature - Golem
If a spell or ability an opponent controls causes you to discard Dodecapod, put it onto the battlefield with two +1/+1 counters on it instead of putting it into your graveyard.

Initial thoughts:

I always loved these kinds of cards. It's not exactly like madness, but it's got a penalty for opponents playing discard. It's always atleast a 3/3 for 4, which isn't terrible, it's fair-costed considering it can be put in any deck. Obviously with the drawback that it also dies to artifact removal.

It kind of makes me want to make a "please discard me" deck. Chain of Smog works with this card quite well. And obviously the most well-known card for this effect: Psychic Purge.

It's at least a decent card. It could be better, but it's just a silly card that would probably never see play outside of the kitchen. 3/5
