This guy is ENORMOUS, but the cost is heavy.  Three colors, 2 creatures, -2 card advantage, AND 2 life for a 10/4 regenerator.  You probably could not pay me enough to play this in constructed .  Very scary, but good if they can't off him.  MAYBE play it in a reanimator type deck with Ashen Ghouls and stuff like that, but not otherwise.

In limited, 10/4 black regeneration is almost impossible to stop.  I would almost undoubtedly find a way to play this guy if I had him.

Constructed: 1.5
Limited: 4.5

Well...speak of your big badarses, this guy definitely qualifies. Though you do have some inherent problems with playing it, like going Blue, Black and Red, and actually *seeing* that mana early. But if this fattie hits the board, then it's your opponent that will be having problems, like facing a 10/4 regenerator. Not real in today's general environment, but still fun if you can play him in a casual game. I actually get orders for these through our Website relatively often, so someone sees some goodness in him!

In limited, Big - Black - Regenerating... Need I say more? Splash if you need to.

Constructed - 2.5

Limited - 4

The fact that this guy's a 10/4, and regenerates, screams to me to Reanimate him. Unfortunately, you have to have 2 creatures to sac to this guy, so you really can't go the quick reanimation route. Also, giving your opponent two cards isn't the best thing in the world. That makes this a huge body with too severe of an upkeep.
In ALICE limited, though, this guy could be a real house. There weren't that many creatures to begin with in ALICE sealed, so the fact that this guy beats for 10 each turn makes you want to play him. I never got the chance, though; and seeing as how he is 3 colors, it might be a bit tough to do. If these were your colors, I'd take a long, hard look at playing him.
Constructed: 1.25
Limited: 3

     And to wrap up the weekend we top it off with this... thing. Its a 10/4 for 4 mana which regenerates for 1 black mana. Can you say, "big fat fun card?" This guy always lands up in my fun decks. Hes a monster-hes cheap, hes just nuts. Hes no where near tourney playable since his bizzare "tribute" you have to pay to him as he comes into play. But notheless, another example of how they should make crap rares. Hes seen many a fun deck, including 5 color pandemonium with pangosaur and hidden herd. =D

     In limited... I would probably play him. As long as your sure you wouldn't mind the drawback, I'd probably play him. Especially since in ice age block, not many creatures there can even remotely deal with this beast.

     In sealed... same thing. Depends on if I feel like I can afford to lose 2 creatures. In ice age block, thats most likely a "yes".

Constructed: 2.0 (Hey at least its a big fun card.)
Limited: 4.0
Sealed: 4.0

4 mana for 10 power and regeneration to protect itself. It has a few
drawbacks, sure, but it also has potential to win a game very quickly. In
a constructed deck, it would have to be a pretty specific deck to support
him, but in limited you throw away a couple of your weenies and then win
the game shortly thereafter.
constructed- 2.75
limited- 4
