Hey you guys remember "Cryptic Command"... Yeah this is its evil twin. The colors are perfect since Grix always stall games for a late finish namely "Cruel Ultimatum"
But what there is to see in this card is how much use it infact have.
1. It's a fog. It prevents you from taking combat damage that normaly Cost 1 mana but hang with me.
2. It do damage to the opponent, and the range is like 1-3 against control up to like 10-11 against Merfolk Tribal. Let's meet in the middle and call that a Lava Axe 5 dmg to face. You know what that's a 5 mana thingy! But lightning bolt is 1 mana and 3 dmg so lets call that 3 mana worth. So now the mana is covered in value...
3. Well the creatures remain tapped.. oh wauw thats funny now you can hit him this normaly cost about 1 to 4 mana to tap all creatures let say 1 mana worth since its only the attacking ones and that's what fog do to.
Now you have 1 Card that can do all the above, but it cost a little more if you only need 1 effect, yet you get em all for the wonderfull prize of it having 3 color types.
I call playable and on the good side at that. 9/10 give the man a cookie.
