Putrid Leech

It's better than it looks. Remember folks, the only life point you need to care about is the very last one, all the rest are expendable. This functions like a 4/4 for 2 mana. Remember Tarmogoyf? Well, it might not be that good, but it's good enough in all the same decks. Don't pass this in Limited, please. And don't underestimate it in Standard.

Casual- 3.5

Putrid Leech

I like playing aggressive decks, and so I like cards that encourage you to be aggressive. Putrid Leech's cost is just right, and its ability (hopefully!) doesn't hurt you too badly as long as you stay on the offense. And it's a Zombie, too - I'm sure someone out there can find a way to make that relevant.

Constructed: 4/5
Casual: 3/5
Limited: 4/5
Multiplayer: 2/5
Paul Magic The Gathering COTD: Putrid Leech

Welcome back readers I will keep today’s review short, Putrid Leech is a G/B bear that allows you to pay 2 life once a turn to pump him up to a 4/4. This leech is efficient and a deal with me threat that draws removal away from your other dudes. In standard if your playing G/B you need to play this guy as it’s the most bang for your buck mana wise in Standards creatures. Extended possibly come rotation with a plethora of other good G/B cards. Casual and multiplayer still good slightly less so as there are more opponents for you to deal with but big creatures for small mana investments are a keeper. Limited a solid creature pick as it is big and turns sideways not much else to say about this guy a personal favorite of mine that deserves some recognition. Being a zombie never hurts matters either.

Constructed: 4.0
Casual: 3.5
Limited: 4.0
Multiplayer: 3.5
