RCotD #187

Random Card of the Day #187:

Nikko-Onna - 2W
Creature - Spirit
When Nikko-Onna enters the battlefield, destroy target enchantment.
Whenever you cast a Spirit or Arcane spell, you may return Nikko-Onna to its owner's hand.

Initial Thoughts:

At first I read that and I was like "Oh, that's cool. Some flavor on spirits destroying enchantments."

Then of course there's Enchanted Evening. I might not have to explain any further.

It does somewhat remind me of a recent game I had where my opponent use Naturalize/Ancient Grudge on my lands with Liquimetal Coating. Later on in the game it wasn't just lands, it was any permanent. Man, that was an annoying game.

But that's a different combo. As for this card, I suspect it was pretty good in Limited. First of all, it can bounce itself. A 3-cost 2/2 is a little underpar but because it can bounce itself with Instant Arcanes like Consuming Vortex or Reach through the Mists can bounce it, getting it out of Harm's Way.

A pretty versatile card. It would require some deck building around this and other cards like it--but I could definitely see it working. 4/5
