Noppera-Bo Picture

And now for a segue into Japanese mythology.

This is the Noppera-Bo, a youkai from Japanese Myth. Let's look it up on our pokedex.

Not too familiar with Kamigawa, so I'm not sure if there's already a creature based on this.

Basically the idea is that it's an illusory clone. Once you target it, it reverts to its true form. I consider this a drawback, so the cost is cheaper than normal clones (which are usually around 3U). You can also view it as a reverse-morph.

I got creative with how it loses its copied abilities. (Well actually it was inspired by me finding out about this rule interaction.)
