Get your hands on this card RIGHT NOW! This guy
is good. Hell, he's great. For four mana you get
a four power creature. And that creature has
trample. And that creature has haste. Oh, and if
that weren't enough, he can't be targeted. He's
good. He's real good.
A very nice card for aggressive decks. Solifuge
hits the ground running, and running hard.
Trample and haste are what makes it an excellent
card, along with being untargetable. Giant
Solifuge gets in there.
Constructed - 4
Casual - 3.5
Limited - 3.5
A 4/1 for four mana. That bodes well right
there. Trample, haste, and untargetability
sweeten the deal. Its only flaw is its one
toughness, combined with its untargetability
mean that it'll probably trip over a Saproling
and die on its first combat phase. Even in this
even though, trample ensures that the 1/1 token
won't save your opponent from taking 3. Think of
it as a burn spell. A burn spell that your
opponent can direct some of the damage to. And a
burn spell that can be sacrificed to Scorched
Rusalka for an extra damage. And on top of that,
it's a GREEN burn spell. The best one Green will
ever get by a wide margin. In Red, not quite so
much, but it's seeing use in pro tour decks that
like lots of burn.
When a Pro Tour champion’s deck is packing a 4/1
in the same slot that could be one of several
5/5s or even a 6/6, you need to ask yourself
why. What makes the evil spider better than
Rumbling Slum and Iwamori of the Open Fist?
Easy, the powerful combination of haste, trample
and untargetability allow the Solifuge to swing
out of nowhere, run over annoying little
blockers and evade targeted removal. The one
toughness keeps this guy from being a complete
and total wrecking ball, but it can usually
guarantee a good three points of damage before
it hits the graveyard.
Constructed – 4/5
Limited – 3/5
Just like everyone else I’ve played my share of
R/G when I didn’t feel like making many
decisions and wanted to play a simple deck. I’ve
always given this spider an odd look but I can’t
complain too much about it, it’s a really good
Side Board creature.
Now I see it being played main and can’t say I
agree with the idea. It’s great if you run into
certain decks but I very much believe this
creepy crawler and his toughness of one belong
on the side lines.
Has game breaking as this critter can be in
constructed I can’t say I like him a whole lot
in limited. Most of the time he’ll get one hit
in and that’s about it, because his extremely
low defense is too much of a draw back for
