Today we take a look at one of the most
enjoyable cards of all time. Of course at
first glance it doesn’t appear worthy of the
term “super rare”, but after witnessing the
effect in live play, you’ll be pushing for
more copies in you deck.
(This spell is put into your mana zone
Destroy one of your opponent’s creatures
that has power 5000 or less. When your
opponent puts that creature into his
graveyard, search your deck. You may take a
creature from your deck that has the same
cost as that creature and put it into the
battle zone. Then shuffle your deck.
At 6 mana, this card will most likely be
compared to the most popular 6 mana
destruction spell out there…. yes, I’m
talking about Terror Pit. So why not go
with that comparison?
For one thing, Terror Pit has this card beat
in the playability factor. You just can’t
beat the shield trigger effect. A lot of
people will also argue that Terror Pit is
better because it destroys larger creatures
and is unrestricted. Now while this
statement is true, just consider what types
of creatures you’ve killed with Terror Pit (Corile,
Pyrofighter, Pala Olesis, etc.). A lot of
the creatures killed by terror pit don’t
ever get up to 5000 power. In other words,
the 5000 power restriction really shouldn’t
be a bother. Although Miraculous Rebirth
cannot keep up with Terror Pit’s shield
trigger ability, it is pretty much just as
What’s even better is the fact that you get
to summon a creature from your deck with the
same mana cost of the target creature for
FREE! This is unprecedented and deserves
recognition. You basically kill a creature
then get a creature. This can be considered
as accelerated field control. A lot of
players can get discouraged because of the
fact that the creature has to be the same
mana cost but just consider the
possibilities and combos. Just remember
that all you need is at least 1 copy of any
card with that mana cost and Miraculous
Rebirth will fetch it. Think about it… You
kill your opponent’s Corile then search your
deck for a Corile and summon it. Your
opponent just lost 2 creatures!!!
And that’s only the beginning. Think of all
the chains you can pull off. Cast
Miraculous Rebirth, destroy your opponent’s
Shadow Moon, bring Rothus the Traveler out
from your deck, destroy Kyrstron, Lair
Delver, your opponent destroys a creature,
Summon Veliryka Dragon (with Kyrstron’s
effect), and search for Uberdragon Bajula
(with Veliryka’s effect). Pretty vicious,
eh? Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be
complicated. Just build your deck, think of
the creatures with the best effects for each
mana cost, and put at least one of each in
your deck. I’ve used Shocktrooper Mykee,
Legionnaire Lizard, Rothus, and Wind Axe
just to name a few.
Remember, this card is Fire/Nature so don’t
forget that you’ll be able to play it before
turn 6. That’s all for now. Keep coming up
with new combos and don’t forget to post
them in the forums!
Destroy a creature then summon a creature
for free! You can stack combos like crazy!
This card might be a little slow so either
add in mana acceleration or don’t play with
I killed a Bolzard Dragon and summoned a
free Legionnaire Lizard to take the win.
Take that you Bazagazeal spammers!
4.5/5 – The mana acceleration option is
always there and the possible combinations
are out of this world. All you need is at
least one creature for each mana cost (up to
six mana) and you’re set.
2.5/5 – The options might not be the
greatest but at least you might be able to
get a free wave striker.
