I like this card better than its cousin Ebony Owl Netsuke. Combine this with Ivory Tower and you’re in for a fun time with your (probably) mono-blue lifegain deck. I had one and, while being a bit slow, was still a really fun casual deck that my opponents sometimes had a hard time dealing with. Since your own hand size is a lot easier to control than your opponents’ (at least in terms of keeping a big hand), you’ll see this trigger a lot in a well-built deck. In short, I like Ms. Crane better than Mr. Owl.
Pros: Lifegain based on hand size
Cons: Requires a big hand
