5 Time Pro Tour


This card is very useful, in the right kind of deck. Late in 2005, the “right kind of deck” was a Zombie deck built around pushing lots of cards into the graveyard via Dredge, and then allowing the Ichorids put into the graveyard to pop out and attack turn after turn. Almost single-handedly, Ichorid qualified perhaps dozens of players into Pro Tour Honolulu. In limited, Ichorid is NOT all that. In limited, the advantage gained by Ichorid’s ability would not be as powerful and would not affect your games nearly as greatly as in constructed where you can have four Ichorids in your deck.




Anyone who knows anything about the Extended tournament scene knows that this card and the deck built around it is THE deck to beat, rivaling even Psychatog. It doesn't look it at first glance, though, because to really shine it needs the whole deck built around it. Of course, there are plenty of ways to build a deck around it, ranging from cut thraot tournament builds to goofy combos that'll give the lunch table a good laugh.
