Our literal hands. I can’t help feeling like the MTG Multiverse would be so much better if everyone just used metaphors a little more liberally. Why do we need a cage made of hands?
This card is just legit weird. Crud. I feel like I should just rip into this one pretty hard, but…I don’t know. Here’s the thing. This is Kamigawa block, the plane inspired by feudal Japan and Japanese myth. Japanese myths can get kind of weird. Traditional Japanese art depicting kami and other supernatural beings is bizarre, and the MTG artists took that ball and ran with it hard. So…welcome to Kamigawa, I guess? Enjoy your stay. I won’t be joining you.
