Okay, I felt like
being self-deprecating today. Okay, I got
26th at GP-Boston. I assure you, I still
suck every bit as much as I did before. I am
at least proud to say that I sucked with 100% of
the cards I opened at the tournament and 0% of the
cards I had buried in my pocket to replace a
random Words of War.
Oh yeah - Dermoplasm.
Sorry I haven't been around to review these
suckers, but when you're not home, it's hard to
review. This guy is good. Seriously.
I think there will be decks in OBC that use him to
bring out some fun stuff. Imagine turn 4
Angel coming in without fear of the shock.
Turn 4 Krosan Colossus. Turn 4 LOTS of
stuff. This thing is neat. Yeah, they
can shock it, but they HAVE to. What's even
Turn 2 Skirk Alarmist
Turn 3 Dermoplasm
Yes, this now means
that any attempt to kill your Dermoplasm get met
with a response of flipping the Plasm, and
bringing in a nice fattie...TURN THREE!!!
Yes, this is very odd,
but in an environment that right now is VERY light
on removal, I wouldn't be shocked to see someone
try to pull this off. I will certainly see
what I can get away with on it. Plus, you
can use Alarmist to turn things into weird-like
Ball Lightnings, but that's another CotD.
In t2, I dunno.
I don't think the environment is really gonna
support this guy, but who knows. It's kinda
blue weak. If this was a Wizard, maybe.
Outside, not sure the combo is solid enough to
hold. You can forget Extended all together.
In limited, it's
scary. VERY SCARY. I'm pretty much
gonna crap my pants of my opponent flips this
after I have attacked. Who knows what
monster they're gonna bring down. If you
have Morphs, definitely play with it.
Alterternately, it can be an Ogre, or a VERY
overcost Flying Man.
