Why is Master of the Feast $60?

Hahahahah. Nah. It's only 60 cents.
A 5/5 flier for 3 mana is insane. But still, because of the drawback (see what I did there?), it's only worth pennies.
So what would it take for this card to actually become valuable?
"Hexproof, Whenever your opponent draws a card, they lose the game."
That would do it, lol

Although to be fair I do have a Demon Tribal deck I built at home with scraps I had lying around that benefits from a playset of him. Deck is like 1/3rd removal + draw so it's quick on its feet. Other than Soulcage Fiend, everythig else has Flying making it a very hard deck to stop if you're not running constant removal either. At work now but when I get home I'll post the decklist and link it here.

How to make magic card better: Remove drawbacks on card. Seems like an easy solution to me. Becuase who doesn't love a 5/5 flier for 3 with no downsides.
But that's not the point here. Not every card has to be Tarmogoyf level good. a lot of magic cards, even at rare, need to only be ok. Otherwise the definition of a good card would change. Not every card can be amazing and I think people need to get over that.

Or you could play it in a Nekusar, the Mindrazer style deck. Therefore turning the card's downside into a boon.

enpc: that line of play assume you already have 4 lands in play.

MegaMetagross: It's a purely hypothetical situation in a non-format specific deck. This could be vintage and you just windmill slammed a Mox Jet that same turn. Or you used a Simian Spirit Guide to get the extra mana. Or you you played Master of the Feast turn 4 with mana up for a Brainstorm/removal spell. The post was about making the card more playable, not semantics of exactly the turn order of play.

enpc: just makin sure you weren't thinking you could untap, land drop for turn, upkeep..

All good thoughts. Hey Catalog9000, lets see that decklist! I wonder if one day they'll make a one or two drop that pairs perfectly with this. Suddenly it's the hot card everyone wishes they got a set of.
