Writhing Bone Ghoul

This guy doesn’t exactly do a lot for dark, being nothing more than a 2/2000 creature. Not a lot of power, no interesting effects.

However, he can be very useful in a swarm/blitz deck as a second turn play following Braid Claw or Marrow Ooze. Now, what makes him a good choice for a swarm deck instead of other 2/2000 guys? The answer is his civilization. Darkness has other cards that work well in swarm/blitz decks, such as Marrow Ooze (1/1000) and Snake Attack (everything gets double-breaker). The Bone Ghoul complements these cards and adds focus to the civilization, preventing a too-many-color deck. Writhing Bone Ghoul is only good if played right in a swarm deck; other than that, he’s weak.

In a draft this card does nothing. He doesn’t have any type of edge over other low cost cards. I’d pass on him.

Constructed: 3/5
Limited: 2/5
Knives101 Well Writhing Bone Goul is cost effective. You pay two mana for a 2000 powered creature. That's a decent trade off. Unfortunatly there's better stuff out there. Both Horrid Worm, and Wailing Shadow are going to be played over this guy. If you are looking for a decent Darkness rusher then Writhing Bone Goul is the card for you. Otherwise don't use it.

Writhing Bone Ghoul- #66(base set)

Ok hi peoples, again I have not done one in a while, I am sorry but high school is rough and I want to spend all my cpu time for home work and games lol.

well today we have a vanilla of a card Writhing Bone Ghoul and since this is a vanilla there isnt much to say about it =/ its a living dead that is a 2000 for 2 not much more to say

Constructed- 2/5 usualy if it is in a dark deck it is mana food though I wouldn't know since I havn't seen it in a deck
Limited- 2.9/5 a little higher here because most normal crappy cards are better in limited and this is a cheap darkness card.

final thought- none tonight folks... not much to say about vanilla, but strawberry short cake on the other hand...

Writhing Bone Ghoul

Constructed - 3.5/5

Yes, I know this is the equivalent of Vorg for Black, but in a deck without Red, this is one of Blacks only cheap attackers that has no drawback. They need to put out some Evos for it. Badly. Like I've said before about cheapies, its Hammer bait.

Limited - 4/5

Cheap. Fast. Kinda big. LOL. As I've said before, speed is a key element in winning drafts, and this card give you that. Yeah yeah I know..its Hammer bait. LOL.

Writhing Bone Ghoul – This guy is a 2000 for a 2-drop.  That’s not bad for a Suicide Black deck where you are just going to rush your opponent, and go for a quick win.  He might get through for an early shield. But Bone Ghoul has no effects and that leaves me wanting a little more.  He certainly isn’t going to get through most of your opponent’s standard blockers either.

Rating – Weenie Deck – 2
Other Constructed Decks – 1
Limited Rating - 2

Hey everyone! Fish here reviewing Writhing Bone Ghoul. it's just Immortal Baron, Vorg for black, which makes it better than Vorg. Black needs at least a little power card. At 2 mana, this is about the most power you'll get, and for black, it's even more important. Black isn't much for power, so Writhing Bone Ghoul really helps in the early game, and the late game when you need an extra creature. Not much more to say about this card.

Constructed: 4/5 Immortal Baron of black. Good for Fire, godd for Darkness as well.

Limited: 4/5 Same thing.
