game store owner in CA,
I'm sure there must be some strategy that gets all
your opponent's fat creatures tapped back in the
days. What that was, I have no idea. I've only
been playing since Invasion block, so.... Maybe
they used removal to take out the fat... dunno.
He's a big guy for a relatively small amount of
mana, so, take that as you may. He'd be house
against a light/no creature control, though.
Casual players love
their fatties, so I can't imagine Orgg being very
potent in Casual (which isn't a big control
In limited, well, who
the hell is playing Fallen Empires in limited?
Well, I'll admit that our Website store does have
a ton of FE packs, so I guess you always could.
Woohoo! He's crap.

An old school predecessor of Goblin Goon, it
served much the same function
as Goon does not. It was even higher on the mana
curve than Goon is now,
since Sligh was quite fast in those days, and
often ended with "Ball
Lightning, Fireblast you."
It was good in the mirror, but I never played with
it because of its high
In casual, there will be plenty of creatures with
power >2 by the time this
comes out, so I wouldn't bother.
I never played FE limited, so I can't give it a

Look, he’s huge! He’s
red! He has a pet! How can you not love this guy!
Oh yeah, he’s from
Fallen Empires, and he’s not really useful.
Details, details, details.
Orgg has long been a
favorite of IRC’s #mtgwacky, and something of a
mascot for us. As such, I am compelled to point
out that he is amazingly fun in any deck with
significant removal or bounce, and he likes fried
dwarf on Rye.

The orgg is
interesting but its drawback is pretty
substantial. It cant attack If you opponent is
sitting with a 3/3 in reserve as a blocker and
that means that he becomes pretty useless as an
attacker. Then he cant even block the 3/3 that’s
holding him off. In limited he might be okay, but
in constructed I give him no real value. In casual
play I would still play things like Shivan Dragon
over this guy.

He’s the big dumb guy
that everyone made fun of in school. He’s George,
and he likes to play with the bunny. Whatever
else you might think of him, just remember the

Anyhow, I remember
playing this guy wayyyyyyy back in the day; you
might remember the format where you were required
to play with at least five cards from each
available expansion (Ice Age, Alliances, Fallen
Empires, Homelands, etc.). Orgg was one of my
choices for the FE cards, and he was quite the
house, let me tell you. Against control decks,
this guy came out pretty quick (especially with
the aid of Orcish Lumberjack) and laid down the
beats in pretty short order. Ain’t nuthin more
fun than a dish of warm, sweet Orgg love.
Who gets more casual
than this guy? Really, quite the monster, he
should evoke fear in the hearts of everyone around
the table who can’t at least manage a Hill Giant.
For Mental Magic, I wouldn’t bother with him;
there’re better guys to cast for RR3 in Mental, as
you’ll see later this week.
He is absolutely awful
in draft. Don’t draft him unless you happen to be
collecting a binder full of him.
oldie but a goody! Orgg, simply put, is a bad ass,
and I wouldn’t resort to swear words if Orgg
wasn’t such a scary monster. Drawbacks aside, Orgg
is delicious 6/6 fatness for a low five mana cost.
One of the most efficiently costed creatures that
ever appeared in red. Simply put, Orgg doesn’t
attack unless he is likely to survive. I feel the
same way as the Orgg. Orgg is the king in a deck
full of, what else, red direct damage spells to
get rid of the creatures in Orgg’s way. In
reality, Orgg never got that much constructed
play, but he’s very cool and extremely powerful in
a narrow sort of way. Orgg also appeared in one of
the only Magic: the Gathering TV commercials years
ago. All you need is a brain, a deck, and a
is like a bad version of Goblin Goon. The worst
part about it all is that Orgg came first. I
can't think of many players that would want to
play this guy.
Sort of like
the beginning of the mechanic that Mogg Toady
and Goblin Goon have. Basically it says “I can
beat on you if all you have is weenies”. If you
were playing beasts or whatever against weenies,
they would have killed you by turn 5 most
likely, or, they would have too many creatures
that this wouldn’t make that much of a
In Casual, I doubt that people will be
playing weenies, and instead will be trying to
lay down the beats. That means that this won’t
be able to attack very much.
In Limited, same problem as casual.
