Discard Decks Get New Asset In Tinybones, Trinket Thief

Tinybones will steal your heart and your opponent’s chances of winning!

Courtesy of Wizards of the Coast (WotC) and Val & PL, check out this cute yet oddly terrifying Skeleton Rogue from Jumpstart – Tinybones, Trinket Thief!

It is important to note that while Tinybones is not Standard, Modern, or Pioneer legal, this powerful Mythic Rare is legal in Commander and is already turning a few heads.

A two mana 1/2 may seem underwhelming, but Tinybones’ abilities definitely make up for its lack of stats.

At the beginning of each end step, if an opponent discarded a card this turn, you draw a card and lose 1 life.

In discard-themed decks, it’s almost guaranteed that you’ll be able to utilize this ability each turn, and since Tinybones is not an immediate threat, it’s likely your opponents will save their removal spells for bigger targets, allowing you to draw a few extra cards.

4BB: Each opponent with no cards in hand loses 10 life.

Okay, now it’s a threat. Like Bennie said, this little Skeleton Rogue may be adorable, but cute only goes so far when each player at the table has no cards in hand and is staring down an imminent ten (or more) damage. It’s also important to note that Tinybones’ doesn’t tap when activating this ability, meaning if you have enough resources, dealing 20+ damage in one turn isn’t unrealistic.
