Inkwell Leviathan

With cards like Maelstrom Archangel, Cruel Ultimatum, and (gulp!) Progenitus out there, there's no such thing as a prohibitive mana cost anymore. Prohibitive secondary market prices, however, are still alive and well, and if you don't want to shell out the cash for a chase rare beater, this'll do just fine. It doesn't die. To... anything, really. Well, okay, deathtouch, but not much else.

Constructed- 2.5
Casual- 4.75
Limited- 3

Inkwell Leviathan

There are certain things in Magic we take on faith: protection is a uniformly good ability, creatures that die easily are bad, high mana costs make a card unplayable. Most of those "certain things" are not true. Protection from white and protection from red are often better than protection from black; Tarmogoyf and River Boa still rock the house despite the literally thousands of removal spells around; and Inkwell Leviathan is in the same set as Master Transmuter, not to mention benefiting from older cards like Dread Return, Vedalken Engineer, Mycosynth Lattice, or even Tinker. Be afraid.

Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 4/5
Limited: 4/5
