making us review my second favorite card today.
While this week was supposed to be "cards we
won't see at nationals week", I decided to throw
this one in (even though I will be running him.
Today's bonus question, how many will I run?
You know the drill. That being said, onto the
Zagaan, Knight of Darkness
Card Type: Creature
Race: Demon Command
Flavor Text: "If I were to send him to the
field, he would overwhelm the enemy in an instant.
Where is the fun in that?" -Lee Sandow, pwner of all
Rarity: Super Rare
Zagaan is the man. He was the first Super Rare
card I ever pulled, and it turns out he's STILL
decent in play to this day. Let us review!
Civilization: He's a big,
beefy, darkness card that doesn't have any
adverse effect to summoning him. Nice. Demon
Commands also have a pretty sweet evo out in the
US, and another (even more pimping) evo in the
future. He's not the best for this purpose, but
he's far from the worst.
Cost: Six mana is a decent
amount, but with mana accel or proper timing,
it's not bad to pull off. It's worth it
Power: 7000 power runs over
pretty much any blocker used in the current
environment, and runs over most creatures that
see play that aren't named Fighter Duel Fang or
Bazagazeal Dragon. *Huggles Zagaan*
Abilities: He double breaks.
What's there to say? Two shields for one swing
is something your opponent won't want to have
Constructed overview: Well,
he's mostly good for Terror Pit bait, but he can
overrun most tapped creatures, and your opponent
will generally not want to have it get to their
shield zone. Also, it's odd, but I've also
noticed that many people have difficulty dealing
with Zagaan, namely because they aren't sure how
to deal with him since they never encounter
him. For extra fun, play him the same turn as
an Emeral, and watch your opponent debate which
is the bigger threat. It's fun. 3/5
Limited Overview: Pull it.
Use it. Love it. 5/5
THOSE THAT DON'T KNOW...
doing a little contest at the moment. Look at
the underlined part of my review (not the next
time line, but something else), and tell me what
that line is from, or where I got it from. The
first person to e-mail me five times with the
correct answers will win a copy of the card we
reviewed that day, plus a little... Bonus.
has done it again, having been the first to say
that Friday's question resembled Lost Soul's
flavor text (as it should). Also, brine found
the answer in Wednesday's review, where I
mentioned the GQ gamer who used Dark Reversal.
I hid the name Austin in there by using white
letters, that you needed to highlight to read.
Keep your eyes open, as I may try that trick
again. Like right now.
Next week: Steven Cantrells last week, and
EPIC DRAGONS!!! (Scary set)
