Its ability is narrow to the point where this is sideboard material. Stymieing discard with a free 5/5 is a powerful trick, especially since most discard is in black, the color of Terror and creatures with fear. Dodecapod is an artifact creature and thus immune to both of those. Slaughter Pact, however....

Dodecapod is an excellent sideboard card against Rack-style decks, since not many of them can deal with a 5/5 creature on the first or second turn. The Rack isn't too popular right now, which explains the drop in use of Dodecapod (which is too bad, if you ask me, since it was one of my favorite cards in Apocalypse and I was happy to see it come back). Hang on to your playsets of foil Apocalypse Dodecapods, though, because discard decks never truly disappear.

Constructed: 2/5
Casual: 3/5
Limited: 2/5

Friday's card is Dodecapod, a Time Spiraled card originally from Apocalypse. Dodecapod is a great anti-Rack option as instead of going to the graveyard when it is discarded, it comes into play with 2 more counters making it a 5/5. You can't discard it yourself for something like a Spellshaper, but if you get Stupored, Funeral Charmed or Thoughtseized, you have a pretty big body for free. It's a great sideboard option against discard-heavy decks.

Limited: 3/5
