    I don't understand why everyone plays Chimeric Idol in Fires instead of Horned Kavu. Let's see...

    Chimeric Idol - 3/3 for 3

    When you have it out, you skip your second main phase.
    Disenchantable (Hullbreachable)

    Horned Kavu - 3/4 for 2

    Kills Chimeric Idol
    Kills Noble Panther
    Un-Disenchantable (Un-Hullbreachable)

    Any other thoughts?

    Chimeric Idol:
    playable even when your Elf or Bird got shocked

    Gating is just too unreliable to be good!

    Why not BOTH? Both have their adv and disadv.

    I'd lean towards the last reply about the gating features..if your deck is made strictly to fires rules..then this might be a waste of time.

    I have been sitting there with a couple kavu in hand and no green or red creature to bounce..dead cards..especially since alot of variants of fires are playing more and more removal.

    Test and see for yourself (Apprentice baby).
