Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
This card is nasty. It's
well cost at 8, but the brutalness happens if you
can bring him into play via Supplicant early.
It has a chance to be very disgustingly bad.
Black 6/6s have always been notoriously hard to
deal with, and this one would REALLY punish you if
you don't properly deal with him fast. Look for
decks to get built around this guy.
In limited, you definitely play him. Almost
impossible to deal with, and his ability is just
wrecking, not to mention being a trampling fat
Nasty ability, but the
casting cost is high. Of course, as you know if
you read yesterday's CotD, he has an alternative
cc with Dark Supplicant. Still, outside of
constructed, not easy to pull off at all. Luckily,
in it's defense, it can cycle, which keeps it much
more in the playable category for limited. In
constructed, I suppose you could play him with a
deck built around him, but still seems to run a
bit slow for the environment.
Scion of Darkness
This guy has 2 things that make him very good:
1-he cycles, thus he not
only doesn't clog up your hand, but he puts
himself in the graveyard to be
re-animated. 2-he has his little buddy to also
help yank him into play.
fatties without paying their casting cost are
rarely a bad thing.
constructed - 3.6
limited - 3 (maybe more if you've got the
Scion of Darkness
6/6 Trample Reanimator, WOW and cycling, He's just
asking to be reanimated. He's powerful and Dark
supplicant can get him out 3rd turn if your lucky,
I'd just play this guy in reanimator, maybe MBC.
Limited, he's a bomb!
Scion of Darkness –
Like I said yesterday, I believe that this card is
playable. In a cleric based deck you can fetch him
early with the Supplicants or you can have a
recursion type deck and cycle him out of your hand
and then bring him back to life. With 2 good ways
to get around his high CC I would say his
abilities are well worth the discounted price.
Constructed – Build a
deck around him, I don’t know if it will be the
deck to beat but you can bet a lot of other
players will be doing the same thing. Also, cards
with internal synergy are really neat – 4.25
Limited – He is a
super huge card advantage beat stick if he comes
out, but I don’t know how likely you are to see
him and have the mana. Only steal him if you are
going Black – 4.50 (going Black)
