When people heard about Creepy Doll, they were hoping for Wizards to out-do their old Stuffy Doll, a rare from Time Spiral. For 5 mana, it gave you a 0/1; not very impressive. But it’s¬†indestructible, and whenever damage is dealt to Stuffy Doll, it deals damage to the player you chose when he came into play. Stuffy Doll can also deal 1 damage to itself and therefore hurt your chosen opponent. Creepy Doll isn’t as good in Multiplayer formats, but it was played in Standard while it was in, creating a creature that made your opponent weary to swing into the red zone with. All-in-all, much better than Creepy Doll.

Creepy Doll is interesting, however. Also a 5 drop, but a 1/1 indestructible instead, that whenever it deals damage to a creature, you flip a coin, and if heads it kills the creature. Like Stuffy Doll, it makes your opponent’s think twice about attacking, but it’s much less effective as a¬†deterrent than Stuffy Doll, as it only kills the creature half the time. But I enjoy the flavor text; “A child’s porcelain doll went missing one night, as did a pair of kitchen shears and the town magistrate.” It’s a flavorful card, but not really playable outside of limited.
