I smashed some serious face with a Sutured Ghoul this weekend. He is very dependent on the rest of your deck though, and I was not happy when I HAD to play him and he only came out with a toughness of 5. Limited a 3.5, constructed a 1.


I'm not sure why you would play this in Constructed, but I can definitely see his power in Limited. Removing just one or two creatures makes this guy worthwhile, 3+ makes him a monster! 

Limited: 3

Umm... see my comments from yesterdays COTD.  For 4BBB, not only should you get a card that immediately bends over the opponent... but it should dance a jig at the same time. 


First we invoke the 7 mana rule again, i.e. Does this card win the game ? The answer is no. Second it's a creature for 7 mana which dies to a million lower cost removal spells that are played in the current environment. Therefore the card is unplayable in constructed and not much better in limited. This card could have been useful and maybe even very good if the casting cost was reduced by 2 or 3 and you could remove creature cards from ANY graveyard for its power and toughness. But since it doesn't say that it is just another dumb rare for 7.
Limited- 2
Constructed- 1.25

So what we have is the possibility for a very large black creature with trample (which there are few of currently). In constructed, this guy will never live long enough to do anything. In Limited, however, if you are playing heavy black, you might find that this guy can be a great finisher. Still, I wouldn't take it very high. If you absolutely need a bomb, he might be suitable.

Constructed: 1.5

Limited: 3

Doc Mackerel Sutured Ghoul

Tournament regulars need not apply. Sutured Ghoul is a wacky card, solely designed to challenge those of a warped disposition. It can reach gargantuan size, but if you put all your resources into a single trampling fattie then you're just asking for it to be bounced or killed.

In constructed, you either build the deck around him, or don't play him. It's as simple as that. In limited, Sutured Ghoul's not a bad late play to use up your dead creatures, but Balthor the Defiled does it so much better. 

Constructed - 3

Limited - 3.5
