3 cost Underworld

Meatmarket get plus 1/1 for each card named
Meatmarket in you KO’d pile. I think this is one
of the cards that puts Underworld over all the
other teams. Deaths Embrace means this little
guy is a nice 8/7 after powering up. Now that’s
a 3 drop I’ll enjoy playing. Of course I’d wait
attack up the curve into my opponents 4 drop and
swing for free with mine but that just how I
roll I guess. The fact that Underwolrd has so
much search and KO’d pile effects means at the
least Meatmarket is a 6/5 which is still very
Sealed 3/5 only because it’s not unreasonable to
get 2 of them since there common. But still a
nice body for a 3 drop.
Constructed 4.5/5 This guy wrecks boards in a
hurry. I’m a fan odd initiative and Satana on 5
normally means I win.
Level 2 Judge
Underworld is looking like the dark horse (no
intended) team for the upcoming Modern Age. Of
course, if we keep spoiling the secret tech, it
won't technically be a dark horse anymore.
Anywho, today we're looking at Meatmarket. Not a
gamebreaking 3-drop, but one that can lay down
some beats and fits right in with a classic
Underworld theme: the KO'd pile.
Meatmarket has generic 3-drop stats; 5/4 with
However, Meatmarket can get pretty big, pretty
quickly. Meatmarket gets +1/+1 for every copy of
Meatmarket in your KO'd pile. The best way to
use this effect is to discard an extra
Meatmarket in your hand to power up, then once
the card hits the KO'd pile, the continuous
effect kicks in, making it a 2/2 pump. Slaughter
Swamp and Soul World are great for being able to
make that play over and over, and who doesn't
want a 7/6 3-drop every turn? With 3 copies in
the pile, she's an 8/7, which is slightly above
average 4-drop stats. Not bad for a common.
Meatmarket is also good in draft, where you'll
be looking at a lot of cards, and pulling
multiples is not a bad proposition in a
mono-Underworld draft deck.
Meatmarket, Lilin for my first review, and
it's a pretty cool card, especially in
Underworld decks. It is a 5/4 at 3 cost,
which is an average-above average bargain.
It also has an ability which says it gets an
additional +1/+1 for each Meatmarket in your
KO pile. It might be hard to get multiple
copies of this card as it is an uncommon,
and not all stores sell uncommon singles.
Also, usually, having cards in your KO pile
is not a good thing. In an Underworld deck
though, this is one of the main strategies,
and there are plenty of ways to get copies
of this card into your KO pile, and others
on the field. This makes it a good move on
turn 3, especially if you have been able to
put one of the in your KO pile first.
3.5/5 Good card, availability might be a
