If you would draw a card, you may put a copy of ~ onto the battlefield instead.
If you would discard a card, you may sacrifice ~ instead.
Othik never had a problem acquiring materials for his research. Truly, those ghoulcallers didn't know the potential of what they were wasting.
1/1

I really have no idea. I have a little bit of time so I decided to post a stupid idea here.

I like it. It can serve as a token generation, and/or stop you from losing, and or get you a lot of cards down the road.

I like this, I feel like you can use the may asymmetry to your advantage, but it is hard to really abuse 1/1 fliers.

I'm bothered by the fact that this looks like exponential growth when it's actually linear, but ok.

I think this would be more exciting as a relevant body. Either give it a relevant creature type or give it 2 power.

This used to be a 2/1 that costed 3, but I really didn't know whether or not being able to turn any card you drew into a 0 mana 2/1 flier was too good. I mean, after you cast the first copy, the other copies you get are essentially 0 CMC spells, so I was hesitant to make this too strong.

Also this started out because I wanted to do something weird with hands. I originally had a card that made your opponents look at totally irrelevant stuff when they tried to look at your hand, but that interacted really dubiously with discard spells and various other cards. So I took a mishmash of ideas that spawned from that, slapped on some floating brain flavor because floating brains are cool, and called it a day.

But an Illusion wouldn't combo with Basilian, now would it?

I'm gonna go ahead and say that an Assassin doesn't combo with Basilian, but I like making fun of Razorborne.

I'm not sure how reading and discussing my designs is making fun of me

an Assassin here doesn't interact much with Basilian. if you make this a Faerie it's pretty nuts with Speaker for the Court. or Brownie Attack.

But... brains.

When I was making the card, I was thinking the art would be something like Overwhelming Intellect. What other creature type could possibly fit?

I mean, it can't be worse than the Eyes.

Well, it's a brain all on its own with no viable way to support its life...

Zombie?

I love that this is a brain. It's deliciously offbeat and fits the mechanics quite well. It could totally have a class though.
Advisor, illusion, wizard, minion... human? those are the only ones that come to mind at the moment.

I find the idea of a replacement effect for looking at hands oddly funny...

"If an opponent would look at your hand, that player looks at Cranarium instead."

Look!
LOOK AT IT!!

I can't believe people are moaning about the creature type. No Goblins Allowed more like No Fun Allowed am I right

I have no problem with "Brain" as a type, I'm just saying this'd probably be more fun to play with a type that has lords to give you an avenue to exploit its proliferation.
