MTG COTD: Clutch of the Undercity

Discussion in 'Alternate TCG Discussion' started by klducks, Dec 20, 2005.

    Clutch of the Undercity - Ravnica: City of Guilds. Uncommon
    1UUB: Instant
    Return target permanent to its owner's hand. Its controller loses 3 life.
    Transmute 1UB (1UB, Discard this card: Search your library for a card with the same converted mana cost as this card, reveal it, and put it into your hand. Then shuffle your library. Play only as a sorcery.)

    I like this card. I really do. Maybe because it won me a match where I was going to lose next turn, but drew this card and won. I dont know, but bounce + 3 life lost seems like a good deal to me. Basically a Boomerang + Volcanic Hammer in one card.

    1UUR: Clutch of the Overcity
    Return target permanent to its owner's hand. Deal 3 damage to target creature.


    Anyway, if you dont find a use for this card (i dont see how you can't, bouncing a permanent aint half bad) then you can always transmute for Circu, Dimir Houseguard, Keening Banshee, Moroii, Strands of Undeath, and Vedalken Entrancer. Again, this ain't half bad.

    The Duck's Rating: 2/5

    Wow that could really be a pain. I don't have any but I would use it even without the transmute. With a bit of hand control you can make them discard the bounced card as well. Kind of reminds me of recoil. Except recoil is a discard not a life loss.

    A very nice card, bounce one of your opponent's permanents and they lose three life, the Transmute is not bad either. 3/5

    This is a very interesting card indeed, not overcosted or anything. It doesn't need the transmute but it is really nice to have. 3.5/5

    This is so much better than That Which Was Taken. They don't deserve the same score.

    This card is awsome. Seriously, bounce AND life loss, OR get 4-drops (a lot of good dimir cards.)
