Name: Magmarex
Cost: 5
Race: Rock Beast
Civilization: Fire
Type: Creature
Rules Text:
Shield trigger (When this creature is put into your hand from your shield zone, you may summon it immediately for no cost.)
When you put this creature into the battle zone, destroy all creatures that have power 1000.
Flavor Text:
Is it hot in here, or is it just me? Oh . . . right.
Power: 3000
Mana Number: 1
Artist: Norikatsu Miyoshi
Rarity: R
Collector Number: 43
Set: Shadowclash of Blinding Night

Civilization: Fire kills mass amounts of small stuff.

Effect: Shield trigger for one, which is always good. It's second effect is the reason why you play it though. It kills every thing with a power of 1000. It helps take care of Rush decks which saw a lot of play at the last CC, one of them making second place. It's also a soild drop with 3000 power.

Cost: shield trigger, 3000 power, and a mini burst shot effect for 5 mana what's not to love?

Combos: set it as a shield, and wait for them to trigger it.

Constructed: 3.75/5 A very nice drop for what it can take care of, and a soild attacker
Limited: 4/5 creature kill is important here

This week, we're looking at some fire cards with a lot of potential.

Magmarex....what to say about magmarex.... It's nothing amazing. You get to kill all your propellor mutants and/or kill all your opponent's emerals and locomotivers. The only problem with this is that you're killing your own creatures too.

I've seen a survivor deck using 4 of this and it looked like it worked fine.

Cookie cutter cotd:

Race: bad

Power: Ok but vulnerable to searing wave

Effect: Good if use at the right time or in the right deck and it's a shield trigger.

Civilization: Hot

Constructed: 3/5

Limited: 4/5
 
Ferret Mage Magamarex
Fire Civ.
Rock Beast
Cost: 5
Power: 3000
Effect:
-Shield Trigger
-When you put this creature into the battle zone, destroy all creatures with 1000 power.
Text: Another dead baby!?! Sue the parents!! Sue them for every dime! Hahahahahahaha!!!!

Cost: 5 mana...hmmmmm. Not so bad for what this card can give you. Not good, but no bad. The major downfall would be that it cost's the same amount as Searing Wave, and your opponent will have enough mana next turn to cast most majorly used kill spells.

Race: Rock Beasts have two evo's as the current time. One of whom I see from time to time, that would be Valkrowzer of course. It's cheap enough to use as evo bait, not much else to say here folks.

Effect: Sheild Trigger is nice to have. It get's even better that it destroy's all creatures as soon as it hits the battle zone. Buuuuuuttttttt, and this is a big butt, it acts as a double edged sword. It's going to suck when you lose a shield only to have a sheild trigger creature that kills off all of your weenies. Although it would be awesome when paired with Propellor Mutant. Yeahhhhhh.....

Power: 3000. Meh.

Constucted: 2/5 I'm kinda on the fence on this. It's nice to kill a whole bunch of weenies like Emeral. But bad when all you have is weenies.
Limited: 3/5 A little nicer. Your best hope is to have it kill a whole bunch of 1000 blockers.
Art: 3/5 You see, the parents violated the copyright law on the phrase, "Baby Deathtrap."
