Creature - Human (Common)
If Curious Child was cast from Exile, it enters the battlefield with a +1/+1 counter.
Down the Rabbit Hole
Instant - Adventure (Common)
Return target nonland permanent to its owners hand.
Considering it can hit planeswalkers, I don't consider it a little high at all. Compare to other blue bounce spells that can hit planeswalkers (other than the ones designed and printed before planeswalkers was a thing. I am certain Boomerang would have cost more if that was the case back then.)
That is an excellent point actually, but a 2/2 for is pretty hard to beat. Not to mention it works well with cards that allows you to increase the number of +1/+1 counters on it. And that is not even accounting for things that allow you to return creatures you control to your hand easily, which exist in certain formats. I will be reducing the cost of the bounce spell adventure to though. That should make the card considerably more playable in limited formats.Mookie wrote: ↑4 months agoRe: costing the spell half - I'm going to point to Into the Roil / Blink of an Eye, Disperse, and Leave in the Dust - two mana is the standard rate, or four if you draw a card. Bumping it to three due to the creature half is probably fine. You do sort of draw a card due to the creature half, but as it is a 2/2 that won't come down until at least turn 5, I don't think it is currently worth a full card.
Ah, but in the story the card is based on, it's the transition between Alice's world and Wonderland. Thus the bounce spell effect.spacemonaut wrote: ↑4 months agoIn a void "Down the Rabbit Hole" sounds like it should involve discarding or milling, as that's usually how a journey into insanity gets represented.
This is a fine card though. Nice effects. Cast-from-exile-matters is a nice mechanic to have on adventure cards, and I like how it ties in with her adventure.
I could, but then it wouldn't feel like a common or at least it would be pushed such. I could be argued into giving her vigilance, as I was contemplating that from the start, but ended up going with the +1/+1 counter.

The one problem was already covered by Mookie - bouncing something and then paying one mana for a bonus 2/2 is something players would want to do, whereas a 1/1 vanilla that costs any mana at all is unplayable even in Limited. You could make her 1/2 or give her a minorly powerful keyword, or both.
