Prophet of Kruphix

You don't think untapping on your opponent's untap step is powerful? You've never encountered Seedborn Muse. Best used in conjunction with an activated ability that costs mana, it can get out of control very quickly, especially you can never again be caught "tapped out". Being able to drop creatures into play during end steps or combat phases is also far stronger than you might guess, as everything now might as well have haste... and also be a combat trick.

Prophet of Kruphix

Both of the effects on this card are clearly powerful. The first is based on Seedborn Muse, which has been a dominant force in casual games in particular for many years; the second on Teferi, who has been a dominant force in competitive games for many years. The real power of this card is having both of them in one place. That's more deck space for cards to defend her with, more deck space for things to cast at times they should never be cast, and more deck space for effects that help you find whichever of those you need. And the art is pretty awesome, too.

Today's card of the day is Prophet of Kruphix which is a five mana Green and Blue 2/3 that untaps all creatures and lands you control during each other player's untap step and you may cast creatures as if they had Flash. This has two very powerful effects that really shine in Multiplayer and Commander alongside even moderate card drawing support.

The mana cost and color combination put it into more of a control theme, which reduces the design options for Simic and Bant decks using this.

Overall two strong effects on one card make this an obvious choice for settings that can work this in and may boost Simic into the higher tiers of current Constructed formats.

In Limited this allows great flexibility by playing your creatures on an opponent's turn, either as surprise blockers or after the final main phase, and the extra untap is beneficial for the tempo advantage. Any card drawing advantages are the best support and having this in your Sealed pool should strongly encourage using those colors or at least splashing one. In Booster starting with a multicolor card is always risky, but with the advantages this provides it is worth taking the chance.

Prophet of Kruphix can become a fun little toy to play with. Maybe you want to sneak a Kalonian Hydra in on their turn or counter whatever your opponent tries to play. Even better, you can use the Prophet to speed up Monstrous creatures by playing them at the end of the opponent’s turn. I like the sound of an instant Master of Waves or a Clone to copy a fatty that is headed your way. The list of possible creature interactions with this card can go on and on. “OUCH” Tidebinder Mage just poked me in the side. Ok, ok I get it! You’re not afraid of a Stormbreath Dragon! (Pushy little Merfolk!) Let us get back to the Prophet of Kruphix. The bad things about this card are fairly obvious. She is a 2/3 for five mana that has no evasion or protection. This means that you might be spending all of that free mana to protect the Prophet instead of dropping creatures at instant speed. Casual players have access to better options with the Prophet than do the Standard players. There is a good chance that this card will get much better in Standard as the Theros block continues.

Constructed: 3
