A 5/6 for two mana, but with an Imperial
restriction. This will likely never actually hit
play on turn two, as the 2 in its upper right
corner alludes to. A Palladium Myr could cast
it, but that's turn four-- the same turn
yesterday's fearsome 5/5 hits play. Coincidence?
I have no doubt that the Superion will find a
spot alongside the Battlesphere, the Turbine,
and all the other powerful Myr cards in the Myr
tribal deck, or perhaps in a deck that runs
Semblance Anvil, thus completely bypassing the
restriction by not paying mana for the Superion
at all. But in competitive Constructed? I have
There are so many creatures that produce mana
these days that it's hard to consider Myr
Superion's game text much of a drawback.
Granted, you might not be able to get this guy
on turn two, barring some kind of Simian Spirit
Guide trickery, but turn three is very feasible
and still before a lot of decks are fully set
up. Really, a 5/6 creature is never a minor
threat at any point in the game. Just ask
Welcome back readers today’s card of the day is
Myr Superion a powerful two drop
with a catch. In standard Lotus
Cobra can power out this creature with some
fetchlands, jorga warcaller and birds of
paradise and other mana dorks can let your
opponents be facing down a goyf level
threat early. In extended this may see some play
as its huge and colorless and there is more mana
creatures around including Noble Hierarch.
In eternal its outclassed by better creatures
and having to use mana creatures
wont cut it. In casual and multiplayer it will
see play in myr decks and is a sizable threat.
In limited its huge but unless you got a large
amount of myr or mana creatures which is
unlikely due to opening less Scar packs, it may
be unplayable. Also the hindrance to
play and its vulnerabilities to both
artifact and creature removal yes I am
aware dies to removal is not a
valuable argument but the artifact hate works
against it. Overall a powerful beater that may
see standard play.
Today's card of the day is Myr Superion which
is a two mana 5/6 with a requirement of the mana
used to cast it must have been produced by
creatures. This should be easy enough for
Myr decks to accomplish and a nasty surprise for
elf decks to get a bigger threat into play
earlier in the game. For either deck this
is a huge and cheap creature that is an
incredibly effective creature despite not having
any other effect like Trample or Flying.
Possibly getting stuck with it in hand prevents
it from being a completely ideal card, but
multiple creatures tap for two mana and a two or
three card combo is reasonable when looking at a
two mana 5/6.
For Limited not having reliable sources of mana
producing creatures really weakens the value of
Myr Superion as getting him into play will not
be easy. Even drafting multiple Myr may
not be enough in Booster and a lucky Sealed pool
can't guarantee a successful casting.
Despite the heavy drawback cards exist to play
this and can be drafted aggressively as they
support any form of acceleration needed.
Myr Superion may often be a dead card in hand,
but works as a first pick in Booster and can be
included in Sealed if several other Myr are
Welcome to another card if the day here at
Pojo.com. Today we are taking a look at Myr
Superion from New Phyrexia. Myr Superion costs
only two generic mana for this 5/6 Artifact
creature. The only catch is the two mana used
must come from creatures.
The stipulation really doesn’t matter, Myrs produce mana, and
that’s what the Myr Superion was designed for,
to give Myr decks another weapon. But there are
much more fun and interesting ways to get him
out. Such as using Tezzeret to animate an
Everflowing Chalice, and use that for mana. Now
that is fun.
Ultimately we all know that this is really going to be used
primarily in Myr decks, which means that they
now have a very real, very quick threat.
Combined with some of the other cards that have
come out this block for Myrs, the Myr Superion
only increases the fact that Myr decks should
start seeing an increased amount of play, and
may very well break into professional play very
