@MaximumCDawg Valid points, except that Mentor doesn't win in a vacuum, either. Mentor is clearly better, that card could profit from its prevalence, though. Not affected by effects like Moat or Propaganda. To be fair, I overlooked the once per turn clause, makes it less explosive.
This card falls in the same class as mentor, kill on sight or die a few turns later. You will need to build more around it, it's not as universally good as the white OP monk, on the other hand it skips the combat step.
I foresee alot of burned faces when people dont't respect the threat he presents.
Seems to be good in Turbo Tezz / Steel City Vault etc. A bit harder to resolve but if it lands unopposed by sphere effects, it is a recall at minimum in these decks, while not giving the opponent a fresh 7.
It's obviously rather bad versus spheres and chalices.
I think the only thing which prevents this from being totally OP in formats with free/cheap spells, is that it is a creature and can get interacted with easily. I wonder if Mindbreak Trap becomes a MD staple again? Jace is good, but that gal draws more cards and cheats mana.
