It's not hard to find the good in an 8/8
trampler for 5 mana, especially when its only
drawback is having difficulty untapping. Scryb
Ranger has proved that little liability to be
naught but meaningless, and anyone playing black
will find themselves suffering a great deal.
Even if you can't get it to untap every turn,
it's a fearsome play.
The fact that this card specifically mentions
black might make it tempting to put it in your
sideboard and wait for a Rock or Doran deck to
show up. Why, though, would you need an excuse
to play an 8/8 trample for five mana with a
nominal drawback? If you have the (admittedly
more fragile due to its one toughness) Scryb
Ranger, that drawback becomes almost
nonexistent. Spectral Force is a card that
deserves to be played in Standard more than it
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go write a
letter to Mark Rosewater and ask him to consider
this card for the Eleventh Edition. Yes, I
really do like it that much.

I always loved this guy, just because he was so
big for so little cost. He costs a bit much
against control right now, but can certainly
wreak havoc on any aggro deck that fails to
inflict the necessary damage by turn 4.
In limited, this thing is huge, and hopefully
your opponent is playing black.
