Here's Caleb Durward playing Legacy Experimental Charbelcher, in a game state after he's traded off a lot of spells against a Grixis control/midrange deck:

Audio is muted for the first part of the video, sadly.

Card did look pretty real there.

The flavor text on this card is pretty wild. Has a magic card ever referenced an earthly beverage before?

Is the coffee grown in the city?

Tell me that isn't coffee.

I sympathize with this decision more than I'm comfortable with. I hope to still see you in my Twitch chat from time to time!

I'd really like to know more about the "Mardu Planeswalkers" deck, do you remember much about the match? Do you know who played the deck?

There are other, earlier examples of black creature exile as well. The earliest example I can find is (93/94-legal!) Ashes to Ashes, but there's also Eradicate, Gild, Sever the Bloodline, and Silence the Believers. (And in more recent sets, Hour of Glory and Reaver Ambush.)

Exile target colorless creature. You gain life equal to its power.

I want some copies of this in the sideboards of all my Grixis decks immediately. Every part of it is relevant -- incredibly mana-efficient; it hits both artifacts and Eldrazi; it exiles (nice Hangarback Walker over there); incidental lifegain.

Any event is better than no event.

And a large tournament of paper Vintage, with proxies allowed, has plenty of mystique.

Your efforts are very appreciated @Prospero. I'd be very sad to see the NYSE be a thing of the past.
