Card of the Day - Common Knowledge
I was thinking about the card Telepathy today, and I was wondering why it didn't see more play. It's a powerful effect, especially against other blue mages.
I tweaked it to draw a card and reveal everyone's hands, but it didn't feel blue that way.
I thought about what other colors reveal hands, and couldn't come up with anything.
I thought about what color would want this the most, and came up with green. Green has an innate sense of the world that could be attributed to wisdom.
I made the card as it is and showed it to my wife. She asked if there was any precedent for this sort of ability, and as I only remembered Telepathy, I decided to check Gatherer to see if any existed.
It took me a while, but I finally a found a card from a long time ago with the same cost and effect, minus the card draw. (Don't click the link until you guess!)
PS. Hollee is upset that this card is an Uncommon even though it's called Common Knowledge. Let me know what you think on the Facebook page, or tweet at me @madolaf.
