Skill Borrower

Skill Borrower

If one card embodies the phrase "sometimes, WotC doesn't consider all of Magic when making cards", this is it. Here are just some of the ways this card can be broken:

Infinite Green Mana: Transmogrifying Licid (or any Licid) + Devoted Druid. Turn this card into a Licid, attach it to a creature, then turn it into Devoted Druid. Since it's an aura, not a creature, -1/-1 counters won't kill it.

Infinite Colourless Mana: Training Grounds + Basalt Monolith. I don't really need to say much aside from it'll tap for 3 and cost 1 to untap.

Infinite Turns: Sensei's Divining Top + Time Vault. Tap this for an extra turn, then put Time Vault second from the top. Draw a card during your next turn, repeat.

There are a ton of other ways to abuse this card, but I think I've made my point. The major issue with this card is that it needs other cards to support it. On its own, it's a fairly big gamble but if you can support it, it can be pretty great.

Pros: Big combo maker
Cons: Requires other cards
Rating: 3.5/5
