to what I assume Mohammed chose as
‘interesting water cards’ week. I’m sure he
has a cooler name for this, though. Today
we review our last survivor (For a while, at
least). He’s nice, but is he playable?
Split-Head Hydroturtle Q
Race: Survivor/Gel Fish
Survivor (Each of your Survivors has
this creature's ability.)
Whenever this creature attacks, you may draw a card.
fair! The more Survivors there are, the
stronger they become!" -Mini Titan Gett
doesn’t directly make your survivors any
more powerful/deadly, but his effect is
great for drawing massive amounts of cards.
Especially when combined with Friday’s card…
Civilization/Race: Gel Fish, like this
guy, don’t see play for their race. They
have no evolutions, and even if they did,
there are SO many better choices than this.
He’s also a survivor, which means he’d
probably do alright in a survivor deck.
Actually, that’s the only place I’d use him…
He costs five mana, like several other
survivors. However, blue doesn’t really have
a designated fifth turn drop (except Corile),
so this guy won’t mess up your mana curve if
you are running blue.
He has 2000 power. Ouch. I don’t like
creatures that cost five of my hard earned
mana if they can be Crimson Hammered.
Unless, like the aforementioned Corile,
their ability is worth it. Which leads us
to the abilities section:
Abilities: The ability to draw a lot of
cards, while nice, isn’t quite worth this
guys cost. Since he has summoning sickness,
he won’t be able to attack for one turn,
which will give your opponent time to
counter it. Still, he affects ALL your
survivors, so a mad rush with this guy on
the field will yield many cards. In a
survivors deck, his ability is worth it.
Anywhere else, use Hypersquid Walter.
Better race, better cost/power ratio, better
that I’ve reviewed these stats, let’s see
how they stack up.
Constructed overview: I’m going to
review him for a Survivors deck. If you are
running water, or simply enjoy having
multiple creatures attack and you get to
draw for them, run this guy. If not, then
I'd suggest skipping water altogether. Use
the darkness cards, who tend to have better
effects anyways. 3/5
Limited overview: This guy allows you
to get hand advantage over the other guy.
Always nice in limited. Just remember how
weak his power is, cause he porbably won't
live too long. 3/5 Same ranking,
is a HyperSquid?
