Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
Forgotten Ancient is
the result of Wizards "Build A Card" feature,
where you and I were allowed to give input and
effectively "create" a card for the new set. And
Mr. Babycakes, as he was nicknamed early on, truly
is the nuts. I'm not sure what kind of constructed
play he will see. But in limited, he can truly be
game over for you opponent. I've lost to this guy
more times than I care to recall, thank you very
much. If he hits the board, you better have
Pinpoint in hand and it better be the next spell
played. Otherwise, it's up to black removal to off
(Hey everyone, if you guys
get a chance, check out our
Website...we just gave it a new look. If you
get a chance, write us and let us know what you
think about it...for instance, what you like
about it, and what you'd like to see improved.
We complained when
the mana cost was increased by one. Turns out
that this is a good thing, as Mr. Babycakes
can't be Smothered.
This guy is great.
Less so in constructed than in limited, since by
the time he starts to get counters, the game is
over or effectively over, but in limited, this
is the nuts. I dare say you find a way to
include him in your deck if you open him.
Forgotten Ancient can
get groovy with Spikes and has some other neat
tricks. Overall, however the card just doesn't do
it for me. Cards that develop slowly just aren't
what decks need to look for although the play
implications are kind of cool.
Constructed - This is
more of a card to build a deck around rather than
a card to add to a deck - 2.85
Limited - Nice to
help tip the balance of the creature battles -
He gets bigger, and bigger, then makes your guys
bigger, and bigger.
Undercosted for sure in limited play, and a
constructed card (maybe the win condition in a
control deck, maybe just as
the "fatty" end of a beatdown deck). Hard to say
