RCotD #191

Random Card of the Day #191:

Spellwild Ouphe - 1G
Creature - Ouphe
Spells that target Spellwild Ouphe cost {2} less to cast.

Initial Thoughts:

Okay, so a 2-cost 1/3 is about on par. It could potentially win the game slowly. More of a defender, but at least it can attack. And his effect is obviously a huge potential target for Canopy Cover and then all the enchantments/equipment you can fetch out.

Though if I were running an enchantment deck, this guy wouldn't be part of it. It's hard to say because he does lower the cost of everything, but he is still vulnerable to a lot despite his 3 toughness.

Trying to make a deck around this would be wonky. Because obviously you are going to have four of these guys, and to get the best bang for your buck you are going to have overcosted pump spells like Might of Oaks. But then your little creature dude is so vulnerable to a Doom Blade or any other spot removal.

Maybe it could work, but seeing as the most obvious and most popular counterplay: removing creatures is it's weakness, I don't see this card going very far. 3/5
