Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
Mortivore is a card
that tends to play out better than he looks like
should. I have seen his ability to regenerate and
be pumped by the
graveyard make him a dominant creature in many a
limited game. I would
always take this guy in a heavy black limited
deck. Constructed is a little
different story. Currently black has so many great
4 drops that Mortivore
will not usually be the creature of choice (See,
Braids, Butcher, Shambling
Swarm, etc). However in the right deck (one that
kills lots of creatures) he
can be a dominator.
A really interesting card. One would want to build
a deck around this card
in order to make it work properly. (Black has a
tendency to remove it's own
graveyard.) In the right deck, however, it could
work very, very well. I
think that it would also be very interesting and
fun in a limited
is the perfect example of a card with unlimited
potential, and no deck to put him in. The
card is pretty ridiculous for what he does, but
just never seems to make the cut due to
powerhouses like Nantuko Shade, Braids, and
more. Even comboing him with cards like
Buried Alive isn't good enough when good 'ole
Balthor can do one better by bringing them back.
In limited, it's an
freakin' monster. God he's almost impossible
to deal with and he will wreck your day real fast.
Limited - 4.5
Current Price - $3.70
Limited: 3 1/2
Constructed: 1 1/2
I can't really remember ever picking Mortivore or
seeing it in limited, but I assume that it's not
horrible. That is, in the right conditions.
hate taking conditional cards. In
rather play Balthor.dec or Nantuko Shade instead
this guy. For fun decks, I assume he could
huge. Just think: 4 Entombs, 4 Buried
A new twist on Revenant on the original, Lhurgoyf.
In the color it should be
in, since black is the color that deals with this
type stuff. However, this
is only good late game, when a bunch of stuff has
gotten killed already.
I've played it, but I wasn't impressed. It doesn't
seem to really fit in any
In limited, however, this is a great card, as it
becomes unbearable as
creatures die. Play it if you're going black.
|Mortivore is the best of the
Llurgoyfs of Odyssey. It capitalizes off
of creatures in the graveyard, which is a very
common experience in in
Type II and block right now. Mortivore has
the potential to be very
devastating, because he regenerates, and he can be
really really big.
In constructed, even early in the game
sometimes, he is a house, and
often supplemented with stuff that can die, thus
protecting him somewhat
from Edict. A 3.5 in constructed.
In limited, think about it: You usually run
14 to 18 creatures in a
deck. Your creatures die often, especially
those little sac creatures
like Dedicated Martyr. Playing this guy wins
the game. It's self
explanatory, a 4 in limited.
regenerating Goyf is not something to sneeze at.
He hasn't seen much play in Constructed as there
are some decks that play almost no creatures. He's
a definate first pick in Limited though. Limited a
4.5 Constructed a 3.
is a nice card, but one that will rarely see play
in today's world of type 2. There's not enough
justification for a creature that can't do squat
against Tog, and will get tapped down by
opposition. Maybe back in the day...
