We’re finally getting to some really interesting Morph creatures.
For 3U, we have a 3/3 Naga Wizard. Hill Giants are always good to have, even in blue.
But what’s this? A morph ability?
When Kheru Spellthief is turned face up, counter target spell. If that spell is countered this way, exile it instead of putting it into the graveyard. You may cast that card without paying its mana cost as long as it remains exiled.
Essentially, this is a 7UU delayed Spelljack.
Being able to steal a spell is pretty powerful, which is why it comes at such a high cost. Personally, I’d be happy with just a flip to counter a spell at a little less mana, but this is fantastic.
While this card is probably a little over-costed for Standard, this is a pretty cool card. I think it’ll see Commander play, it remains to be seen if it sees play in Standard.
Until next time,
