Thursday -  When Fluffy Bunnies Attack
 
Unhinged's version of Irradiate. One of the main mechanics in Unhinged is the name of the cards. This takes that "set mechanic," and penalizes the card just like Irradiate does for artifacts.
 
It's better than Irradiate is in Mirrodin, though, as it doesn't matter what you have, only the name of the card. Will reliably kill most 2/2's, as you can usually find a vowel that has 2 instances in a card's title.

When Fluffy Bunnies Attack

This is a fun card to play with, completely plausible and useful. On the other hand, this is not a particularly funny or clever Unhinged card. There is no rhyme or reason, no real flavor relating this card to fluffy bunnies, as the flavor text freely admits. In reality, this is just a strange removal card, decent enough due to its instant speed.

I would swear that they built the Unhinged set to make this card able to kill anything in the format, but I forgot about the Red Hot Hottie. In general tho, this card is the best kill card in the format for draft, and a very high draft pick. In constructed format it seems to be worth playing as well. All in all, this is a solid card you can fit into any deck with any black at all, since its one colored casting cost also makes it splashable.

When Fluffy Bunnies Attack - Thursday

After reading the flavor text, I have to agree. I have no idea what -X/-X has to do with letters and bunnies and what not. The artwork is pretty neat though. This is a card that could definitely be played in constructed if it were legal. It's a bit odd and untraditional, but it's definitely useful. In Unhinged limited formats, something like this is amazing. There are some REALLY long card names in this set.

Constructed: I'm running out of creative ways to say "No Way!"

When Fluffy Bunnies Attack --

I'm not diggin' this card at all. The effect is only OK, but it will usually only be a -2/-2 or, if you're lucky, -3/-3 to one creature for your four mana. I'm not a huge fan of blowing four mana just to kill a 2/2, so I'll look for creature removal elsewhere. Maybe I could use Richard Garfield and any Black card in the set to come up with decent removal.

In limited, I'll change by opinion entirely. You don't get the shot at too much removal, so you might as well scoop When Fluffy Bunnies Attack and hope you can hit a decent creature.
