  Onslaughter Triceps

Base Set

Date Reviewed: 8.18.04

Constructed Average Rating: 2.87
Limited Average Rating: 3.5

Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst. 3 ... average.
5 is the highest rating.

Knives101 Onslaughter Triceps is kinda like a miniature Ucarn. Three mana for 5000 power is bound to help a deck deal with mid-sized blockers, and creatures. Losing a mana isn't that bad of a drawback. I prefer to run Flametropus over this though. Flametropus gives you a similar effect, only you get Double Breaker too. Flametropus can deal with Angler Cluster. It can also kill off Barkwhip, and others without dying. Oh and Flametropus doesn't have a problem getting bounced, like Triceps does.

Rating: 3
Stegyman Onslaught Triceps

Oh, love that picture.

Triceps: Fire Creature, 3-Mana, 5000 Attack. Not bad, huh? You have to discard a Mana to get him into play. Not too bad..

Is this card good? In Mono-Red, yes, it fairs pretty well, but is merely "ok" in other decks. Why? Well, discarding a Mana hurts, especially on turn 3. Of course, if you're playing a Rush deck, playing Triceps is not a bad idea. You would have two Mana deck turn, so it would be easy to play Immortal Baron Vorg/Brawler Zyler/Mini Titan Gett/2 Deadly Fighter Braidclaw.

In Limited, I'd draft this only if nothing else catches my interest. It's a very nice card in Draft and can deal with nearly every Blocker that is a Common/Uncommon.

Tournament: 2.5/5

Limited: 3/5

Monte Eads
a.k.a. NFG
Onslaught Triceps

Constructed - 2.5/5

I give this card a big ol' meh. If you care about advancing faster than your opponent, then by all means dont run this. I would rather put down a Broze Arm Tribe or Aqua Hulcus. I really suggest you don't run it.

Limited - 4/5

Beastly, just beastly. This card can give you such a huge advantage IF you get it on turn 3. It can't be Flamed or Hammered (LOL) so it has to be Smoked or Terror Pit'd. Terror Pit is a hard card to come across of in a draft, and Death Smoke is a turn later than this guy's summon. So basically this guy should stay on the field until something stronger can kill it.

& Chips
Hey everyone! Fish here talking about Onslaghter Triceps. Now this card is considered bad by many people, because of the fact that you lose mana when you play it. but if you think about it, it's not so bad. 3 mana for a 5000 creature may catch your opponent off-guard. If you add the lost mana to the mana cost it's still 4 for 5000. Fire is cheap anyway, so losing one mana won't affect you as much. it's still a big loss, but one that can be made up for.

Constructed: 3.5/5

Limited: 4/5 It's big and cheap.

Chips has the day off.
