Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
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.
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.
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
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
Constructed: 2.0 (Hey at least its a big fun

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.
