Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
Terravore in and of itself doesn't make much
sense, but put it in a combo deck built around it,
and this thing can be quite the large creature.
There are plenty of ways to get lands into the
grave currently, including sac lands and cycle
lands, plus other spells that can send land to the
grave. You can even do an armageddon or
obliterate affect and cast this guy out fairly
quickly... you'll have a huge creature and your
opponent will have no way to adapt in time,
Don't even think about
it in limited.

fun. This likes to team with Balancing Act, and
a bunch of sac lands from Invasion.
Alternatively, he also goes well with land
destruction. But Magnivore is much better in the
land destruction deck, since you will be casting
so many sorceries anyway. Not a bad creature,
but too dependant on lands being in the
graveyard, and that's the one permanent type
that is least likely to be in the graveyard.
Not too expensive, plus trample, means this guy
may see some play aside
from the obliterate decks. In limited though,
there's not yet been a
landkill (or land cycle + sac) heavy enough
environment for him to be
constructed - 3
What a fun creature to build a deck around. I
picked this card from my Oath
of Terravores deck. The only creatures were 4
Terravores. Oath of Druids was
used to get them into play, and get all the land I
can into the graveyard.
Other cards in the deck were Moments Peace, which
I could use if oath put it
into my graveyard, Steely Resolve so the
Terravores could'nt be targeted.
Sterling Grove was included to protect my
enchantments, or search for the
needed Oath. There was of course other search and
helpfull cards included.
And if my opponent does'nt play with a lot of
creatures, i could'nt use the
oath. In this case, the Treetop Villages and
Forbidding Watchtowers were
Other Terravore decks are RG land destruction with
Stone Rain, Wild Fire,
etc. I decided to go with Oath since I've never
seen it before, so there
was'nt really any outside influence on my deck
