think this guy is horrible looking at his
drawback. However, I don't think that is
terrible. Also, getting a large creature for
3BB is a pretty great deal. The downside is,
that in constructed, you can get a Sengir Vampire
for the same cost.
In limited, I have drafted this guy a couple of
times and I have passed up on him a couple of
times. It just depends on the mood I'm in or
what I'm going for. However, if you just
need some more hitters, he's well worth it.
I won't give him a thumbs up or a thumbs down.
On this one, I'm like Mills Lane in a Tyson
fight...calling it right down the middle.
guy is really amazing. A 6/5 for 5 is solid
in any limited
environment. Sometimes he does no damage,
but graveyards are so important
in today's environment. I think he'll see

screws with your opponent's haed. It's not like
they'll have cards in their graveyard for long,
and they'll constantly be scrutinizing their
graveyard for ways to make this fattie less
effective. But eventually... they're doomed.

that much fun. Early on he's pretty

death for them. He might see constructed
play in block, but I'm not even sure of
that. He's okay.
