    Default MTG COTD: Mystic Snake



    MYSTIC SNAKE

    Apocalypse rare, Time Spiral "Timeshifted" reprint

    1GUU: Creature - Snake

    Flash (You may play this spell any time you could play an instant.)
    When Mystic Snake comes into play, counter target spell.

    Its fangs are in your flesh before its hiss leaves your ears.
    2/2

    Good GOD, this will be broken for Simic decks. It's a counterspell attached to a 2/2 essentially. It's almost a free card for you interms of card advantage because this guy doesn't cost you a card to counter a spell.

    3.5/5
    Props to MysticFlames for these!

    This card got broke. It's...potential is overwhelming. Free 2/2 AND it counters a spell? Think Counterspell + Creature. Pretty worth it. The mana is about the same, but it's in one card. More efficiency.

    4/5.

    I love the flavor. I love the mechanics. I love everything.

    Everything EXCEPT the mana cost. GUU is very mana intensive and you should think twice about your mana coverage before you stick this guy in.

    I like how you can have soooo many options with this card. The obvious one is a counterspell with a 2/2 snakey gift. The other is like a Flash Foliage. Im sure youd use the counterspell option 97% of the time. But atleast you have options when you're in a deep hole.

    3 color specific mana? Bad.

    Counter? Good.

    It all works out in the end. 3/5
