Phyrexian Plaguelord
A great card to start off the week. You can sacrifice other creatures you control to make your opponent's creatures slightly smaller, or you can tap and sacrifice him to make something really small. A great way to control the creatures on the table, and if you have a lot of creatures, and are playing black, I highly recommend this.
In limited, this guy is the nut in black. There is no card I would rather have if I'm playing black in 8th edition limited than this guy.
Constructed: 4
Limited: 5


Phyrexian Plaugelord is always a strong pick, although 5 mana is where I begin to want something that will win the game all on its own. Still, 4/4 for 5 is acceptable with good abilities and the Plaugelord has some great abilities. Nothing can control the ground game like one of these.

Constructed - Maybe look for a more powerful win card but still great - 3.75

Limited - What is not to love about making all your creatures into a psuedo-Fantastic - 4.50



What a great guy, that Plaguelord. Getting a 4/4 for 5 mana is a good deal,
with the handy abilities you get. When one of your creatures die, after that
creature deals dmg, just sacrifice it to the Plaguelord, to give -1/-1 to
whom ever you would like. An example, is blocking a Grizzly Bear with a
Llanowar Elf. The elf deals 1 damage to the bear, then you sacrifice him to
the Lord, and give the grizzly -1/-1, killing it : ) Mr. Plaguelord works
nice along side Festering Goblin too btw.
