Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
Blood works to bit by bit build up your creatures.
In constructed, a little slow, but in limited can
eventually break the game, though I guarantee that
your opponent will jump through their arse to get
rid of it before it gets out of control. All you
need is one creature with some kind of evasion or
nasty virtue, and you can pump it to beyond
manageable proportions for your opponent. Cool
An old school
favorite that has come back in Mirrodin.
Unfortunately, as good as it is, it's slow. That
makes to unusable in most non-casual constucted
In limited, slow is
fine. Play this if you have it.
It used to be amazing in limited, now it's just
ok. Good with a spikeshot
goblin or pentavus, but otherwise, you compare
it to a battle gear and it
takes at least twice as long and 12 mana total
rather than just 6 to give a
This card is obviously a limited only card,
but its a good one. A bit slow, but it can take
over a game with the right stuff... especially
that spikeshot goblin guy. This card all in all
is a good reasonably early-mid pick. Sometimes a
goes a bit late and if you can - scoop one. Lots
of evasion + this = hard to deal with, but
normally this can be hard to deal with. Just
remember: its slow, but worth it when it works.

This card is a bomb
in limited. Friday night, I saw a guy hold off
a swarm of attacker switch a few creatures and
dragon blood. It really screws up with the
maths of the game. And, if you let it scare you
into not attacking at first, you then have to
worry about huge creatures late game. If your
drafting, pick it pretty early. 3 - 5 pick I
Constructed, I don't
know. I never understand why a card can be
really good in limited, and not constructed.
This just feels to me liek it wouldn't do too
good in constructed. Creatures aren't important
in constructed, at least not as important as
they are in limited. And lots of decks can deal
with creatures easily. Wasted mana investments.
It could be comboed with tomorrow's card though.
Limited: 4 (Hate
pick if anyone around you is playing green. You
do not want this with a trampler)
(creatures are too much of a liability)
