SUCKED INTO A ~~JET~~ THOPTER ENGINE
Bro Launch Mishap is tragic, what the hell? Like, the art is already giving me anxiety but the implication is even worse. Is the thopter enough to keep her aloft so now she's just... dead, hanged by her scarf, and flying around the city? Is that why the spell makes a Thopter token?
Zooming in on the art, the scarf is no longer wrapped around her neck. She's fine, the thopter's probably not.
She's standing on a balcony and the scarf isn't wrapped around her. Worst case scenario the broken thopter lands on someone below.
I read the title and assumed they had made a legendary creature named "Launch Mishap, Merfolk Pupil". Weird name, that.
Launch Mishap, Merfolk Pupil
When Launch Mishap crews a vehicle, that vehicle gains, When this creature attacks, you may sacrifice it. If you do, it deals damage equal to its power to any target.
What the fuck id actually play this legendary
Maybe I'm just too used to poor QC from WOTC but I saw "Launch Mishap" and immediately thought "oh what did they misprint this time?"
I love the whimsical art :)
She's about to have her neck snapped
Nah, it's not around her neck anymore.
I think they meant the second card
The merfolk pupil is kinda reminiscent of the BRO dog we just got, expect it's looting, not rummaging, and the graveyard effect is a bit more flexible in terms of mana and timing, and you don't get a second body.
I already liked the dog, but I like this even more.
Launch Mishap is pretty live in a spells EDH build. Reduces to U, counters commanders, and has a synergistic upside in that a lot of those decks care about artifacts as well.
It’s like [[Access Denied]]’s little brother

I'm kind of in for this thopter counterspell in my Sai, Master Thopterist deck. It's a very good design, slightly sub-optimal on rate for the average use case but with some kind of synergistic upside if you're doing the right thing.
Launch mishap really should've countered vehicles too
What's the flavor here
"Prepare thyself, knave, for I tap six lands to cast my Blue Eyes White Dragon!"
"mmm actually you were testing out this thopter prototype (see here it is) and you got your scarf caught in it. this kills your dragon"
He's just so happy to be there
I love the art of Merfolk pupil. Looks so happy, and I like that he goes with a water bubble everywhere
So do you guys think this is a Kaladesh Dwarf?
This card does everything Dredge wants to do. Activated ability from the yard? Yes. Draw a card? That's a dredge effect. Discard the thing you just Dredged afterwards? You betcha.
I assume the alt art version of launch mishap is going to be a picture of the Blizzard logo
