The Rain in Spain gives me a pain


#1

Were all of you sitting around late one night with blood alcohol levels above the recommended range when someone piped up, “What this game needs is a very silly card that increases the randomness of the game and totally unbalances the Gift of Rakoa!”? Because I can think of no other explanation for the Rain of Fish. If you must keep this card in the game, I have two suggestions for balancing:

  1. Change gift of Rakoa to read “Give target creature +1/+1 for every green card in play”
    or
  2. Have the raining fish die upon striking land immediately, rather than at the end of turn. Lands in this case would include lakes.

I would probably recommend option number 2, but I still don’t think this card adds anything to the game.
