Well, they may never name a Magic card after me
(although I sort of claim Zanam Djinn.) but at
least they have now named a card after the
neighborhood I grew up in.
Yes, I like this card. In limited play AND
constructed, I think there will always be a
place for a 5/5 monster for four mana. Decks
featuring red and green are generally
aggressive, so the one point of damage to each
player each upkeep is really more of a positive
feature than it is a drawback. Much better in
limited than constructed, Rumbling Slum sounds
like good times.
You should always give something a look when it
is undercosted. This one seems pretty good. A
solid G/R deck should be able to generate the
mana to cast it. It's ability fits hand in hand
with beatdown decks. It's also not a legend, so
you can have multiple in play to speed up the
Wow, now this is a card that could see
constructed play. Everyone is talking about the
strength of Red/Green with the new Guildpact
cards, and Slum is no exception to it. A strong
5/5 for only 4 mana, Sum comes out ready to
swing hard, and to do a little extra damage each
turn just to get the job done that much quicker.
The damage to yourself is pretty much
inconsequential, as you will easily win this
Solid in casual play, and a must play in any
limited R/G build. Rumbling Sum is a top quality
offering from the new Guildpact set.
