Since we have been talking in the car back from a GPT modern we noticed that there is not realy a good 2 mana cost drop in modern for the collor red.


Blue has snapcaster

black has dark confidant

green has tarmogoyf

white had stoneblad mystic ( banned ) se we need on for this collor too

but Red does not realy has something like this so I thought of a card like this 


1 red mana and 1 collorless


for a 2/2 creature


it has haste , persist and when eh enters the battlefield he does 1 dmg to target creature or player






what do you think of this is this:


- overpowered

- not good in modern

- not a stapel

- useless

- ...

I'm not playing Modern (although it is one of the few modes in which my decks are usually legal),

but doesn't it seem like this combination of abilities a bit strong on a 2-drop?

It's like a one card-combo. If your opponent is unlucky enough to have a X/1 on the board, this 'lil daredevil can just

burn a creature and attack in its first turn. If you come to use its persist, that are like four damage for 2 mana; That's no longer value, that's GOLD!


Why persist anyway? It's not that much of a groundbreaking/strong mechanic (at least since Undying, Geralf still too stronk!).

You know what I would go for?

Haste, whenever [whateverthefuckitsnamed] enters the battlefield or is put into a graveyard from play, it deals 1 damage to target player or creature.


Btw, what about Ash  Zealot and Blood Knight? Aren't they viable 2-drops (or are they like banned for whatever reason or something?)

Anyway, I like that you're actually concerned about cards missing to the current pool, instead of posting some kind of random ideas.

well they are not banned but they cost double red and are not stapels for modern at all they don't do enough damage since this is a good card it can easyly be played in red deck wins and goblins

and for that it will again be a played deck and not a rogue deck.
