Stocking Tiger - 5
Artifact Creature - Cat Construct (Promo)
Stocking Tiger enters the battlefield with a sealed Magic booster pack under it.
When Stocking tiger deals combat damage to a player, unwrap the booster pack and put it into your hand.
Just hope yours isn't full of coal golems.

Stocking Tiger can be a very powerful card, provided it deals combat damage to one of your opponents. You'll get from four to 15 extra cards in your hand. We recommend "Modern Masters" packs for some broken goodness like Path to Exile, Gifts Ungiven, or Sword of Light and Shadow. You'll want to stick away from "Fallen Empires" and (as Booster Tutor notes) "Homelands."

Although Stocking Tiger won't be legal in official DCI sanctioned tournaments, it's sure to show up in many Commander decks. Just hope that your opponent doesn't steal your Stocking tiger with a Control Magic and hit you with it. If they do, then they'll be the one who gets to open your booster pack and add the cards to their hand.

Expect to pay or trade a premium for Stocking Tiger. Due to its scarcity, it will no doubt become a highly sought after collector's item.
