Brainbite

There's an old joke that adding the text "draw a card" to anything will make it playable. By that logic, Brainbite should become a staple, and it would if it weren't still just a little expensive for what it does. Gotta love that art, though.

Brainbite

Lobotomy just got an upgrade. Now it is a cantrip on top of the prior ability. This is a real nice addition to a card that has always seen love in any casual room. Not a top pick in limited but if I get one in draft it will go in my deck. The problem with the old lobotomy was that it provided strategic advantage but not card advantage. This does both.

Brainbite

 

Constructed: To make someone discard any card and draw a card for yourself is a great deal. Four mana not to bad. Good thing is says 'opponent' or it could help Unearth decks.

 

Casual & Multiplayer: Okay card for budget decks.

 

Limited: This can be a great card for Alara Reborn only drafts. For the other limited formats it is okay. Being commons makes it a very solid pick.

 

Overall a good common.

 

Constructed: 3

Casual: 2

Multiplayer:2

Limited: 4
