The fact that it triggers each turn definitely ups the durdle factor.

Hello, TCG player? Cancel those monoblack cards, My new -1/-1 counter deck is going Golgari.

As Foretold scared me deeply at first.

Then I thought about it some more, and realized it's not even Aether Vial.

It's better than Vial in that it generates mana for more than creatures and doesn't force you to match casting cost with charge counters.

But it doesn't do what really makes Vial strong - turning creatures into free, nigh-uncounterable instants.

It isn't Aether Vial. Aether Vial doesn't trigger every turn. Aether Vial does make the creature spell uncounterable, but it's only for creatures. As Foretold is for all spell types. The flexibility and utility it provides, especially in EDH, is above and beyond vial (at least in this format).

No it's not Aether Vial; you can't activate it whenever you want. There's no surprise combat tricks with this.

Edited for clarity: You can't drop a creature mid-combat. You can, of course, cast an instant as normal.

I like it, but not as much as I would like the dual or tri colored Cat Legend we have been waiting for since TSP.

Preferably GW or GWX...

Hapatra makes me smile. I like it.

And I'll likely get groaned at every time I cast 'Prepare to Fight' (That's Right!)

The opposite of fast draw, what Simic doesn't like. Nice design though.

Wee bit of Speculation. Looks like Proliferate is going to return in the next year or so. Or it's just another cool Commander card for Bant Enchantress or Atraxa. Neat stuff.

Actually, proliferate was supposed to be in Kaladesh but got pulled in development.

Wait, isn't proliferate useless with this card?

Girlfriend has been using Gahiji for her kitty tribal deck. Red doesn't offer a ton, but Gahiji kind of looked like a cat and has an awesome buff they sort of need. If they did, maybe we get one in a precon and it's a nacatl from Naya.


Proliferate does nothing with Bounty, and the card seems like a durdle fest. I try to avoid sounding spiky and tryhard, but 4 cmc for so slow an effect does not feel worth the slot.
