A number of megamorph cards are actually
quite useful when played for their "normal"
costs as well - for instance, Belltoll Dragon
here is a pretty good upgrade to the usual
five-to-six-cost evasive creature for limited.
If you're lucky enough to have picked up a few
other dragons, the bonus can have a noticeable
effect; that depends partly on luck and (in
draft) what other people are playing, but every
so often a stalemate comes along where you'll be
glad to have it.
Today's card of the day is Belltoll Dragon
which is a six mana Blue 3/3 with Flying,
Hexproof, Megamorph for seven, and when it is
turned face up you put a +1/+1 counter on each
other dragon you control. The mana cost is
fairly high to manage and dragons are somewhat
awkward as a theme, particularly for Blue which
leaves the already minimal benefit of the flip
effect to be further reduced in value. The
only strong points of the card are having
evasion with Hexproof, but attached to a 3/3 at
that mana cost it is probably far better to just
play Cloudform instead.
In Limited this can be very difficult for an
opponent to deal with as options for blocking
are reduced and direct removal is prevented.
The mana cost is still very high for a 3/3,
though with only a single Blue in the base cost
it is easy to splash and the slower format
should have little trouble fielding a six mana
creature. A solid threat to pick second or
third in Booster and a fairly easy inclusion for
most Sealed builds.
