A Wild Dack Fayden Appears!

Are you a Quiet Speculation member?

If not, now is a perfect time to join up! Our powerful tools, breaking-news analysis, and exclusive Discord channel will make sure you stay up to date and ahead of the curve.

UPDATE:  The entire card has been revealed!  Check it out!


We all know Wizards loves to bury spoilers for cards. We've seen Jace pieced out all over the world. We've seen Innistrad spoilers hidden in cryptic messages disguised as flavor. We've seen Return to Ravnica story spoilers brought out because of a one-point difference in font choices.

Well, Conspiracy is no exception.

So... what's it mean?

To be honest, I'm not sure what to make of that. Luckily, people on Reddit are smarter than me sometimes.

After some complicated logistical work (seriously, read the entire post to find out what they did), we're left with this in the end. Which, of course, is what everyone really cares about.

Now just to find out where they've hidden the rest of the text...

Pretty cool, right? Now get to figuring out the rest!

  1. Ok, I’ll make a call:

    +1 Faithless Looting

    -2 Steal Artifact

    -6 Whenever a player casts a spell that targets a permanent, you may choose new targets for it.

    Starting Loyalty 3

    Mana Cost – 1UR

        1. Yeah. I’m working on the logic that he’s the multiverse’s greatest thief, not the multiverse’s greatest borrower (he’s be a lot shorter if he were), so a permanent steal of an artifact makes more sense than an act of treason effect. So looting (stealing), steal artifact (stolen) and the last bit (misdirection to facilitate stealing, plus I can’t think of anything else that fits that bit of text).

  2. The abilities are:

    +1: targeted faithless looting

    -2: Gain control of target artifact

    -6: You get an emblem with “Whenever you cast a spell that targets a single permanent, counter that spell and gain control of that permanent.

      1. I think you guys are all close I’m betting on
        +1 target player draws 3 cards, then discards two cards
        -2 gain control of target artifact
        -6 you get an emblem with “whenever you cast a spell that targets a permanent, gain control of that permanent”

        We’ve already had a red planeswalker with a loot esque +1 and I think they’ve realized that without actually giving card advantage it’s bad. And I don’t think the ultimate will counter your spell this is more balanced because you can’t lightning bolt a 3/3 to gain control of it

    1. If you don’t think of looting as him bringing something and leaving it, then taking something he wants, but rather as the two cards you get being the loot and the two you discard as the dross you have to rifle through to find it, its much easier.
