Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
plug: You can pre-order this card and all
109 other rares though our ebay auctions!
Just check out the auctions for www.shuffleandcutgames.com.
first thing to remember about this card is that it
can grab from ANY graveyard, and be used as soon
as it comes into play. This is a pretty
strong ability, but the question is how useful is
it? Things have to die for this to be
useful. Plus, mass removal REALLY hurts this
thing from going off. I think you'll find
this is not much of a constructed card.
this thing can utterly rock the house. Could
provide infinite chump blocking, provided you can
get 5 zombies. I'm not sure that will be
THAT hard in Onslaught limited.
Another of the
tribal cards that seem to be creeping up on
Fridays. First, you can take a creature from any
graveyard. So feel free to stael your opponent's
creatures. Second, it's reusable.
Having said that, it
costs 5 mana to play. This means it is right out
in constructed, as it is too slow.
In limited, however,
if you are able to get 7+ Zombies, I'd start
this. Theres a lot you can do in that situation.
Keep in mind that this is a zombie itself, so
you only need 4 other to activate its ability.
I generally like the
new cycle of Lords but this one seems to be a
little weak compared to others. First it is
really expensive to cast at 4BB there are just
so many better black cards you could use that I
don't see this making the cut. Secondly it's
ability to bring a creature back to play by
tapping 5 Goblins is an effect you can get
cheaper and easier with cards like Stitch
Together and Zombify. Additionally if you are
playing the type of black deck that casts five
Zombies you should be using them to smack your
opponent in the dome not tapping them for
As a side note if
this ability was tap 5 Goblins drain your
opponent for 5 life, this would be a much more
Limited: 6 mana for a 3/3 is
waaayyy too much - your unlikely to have 5 zombies
in your deck, let alone have them in play at the
same time. A 1 in limited.
Constructed: Its too
expensive and its activation cost is too high as
well. All I can think of is some kind of combo
with zombie infestation (discarding beefy
creatures to the infestation then bringing 'em
back) although you'd probably need some kind of
card drawing (eg deep analysis or obsessive
search) to keep it going. Overall though, I'd give
this card a 2.
not sure I like this card. You have to have
several other Zombies in the deck or a way to make
them, to make use of this card. It's also
fairl yhigh cost to play.
On the other hand it could be great in limited.
Also, it may be bale to pull some weight in the
future extended environment. Only time will
