Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
Wow...this guy has it
all. Unfortunately, you'll almost never get
to see it face up on the table in front of it
because YOU CAN'T AFFORD IT!!! If you haven't won
by the time you have 10 mana, there is something
seriously wrong with your deck.
In limited, he'd be
one scary guy if he ever saw play, but he's just
too expensive. You *might* be able to spring 10
mana, but do you have 4 red to pay for his upkeep?
Yeah, he can break a stalemate, but usually
someone wins before you get to that point.
But hey, in DC-10,
this guy is HOUSE!!
Sorry, had to get
that out of the way ...
In constructed, he
doesn't even fit in the reanimator deck, since
he has an upkeep cost. So that limits him to the
Dragon deck in block. And this guy is nice, but
I don't know that you don't have more efficient
dragons for that deck.
In limited, DUH. If
you have 5 mountains in your deck, you should
Dragon Tyrant is huge
but with matching mana issues. A true beast with
Trample and Double Strike and pumpability but the
10 cost and upkeep, which keeps this from being a
good option for reanimate decks, is rough.
Constructed - If
you can get it into play quickly it would be
great, otherwise this card is no good except for
fun - 2.25
Limited - If Red is
your main color this is a game winner but the mana
cost still worries me here - 3.00
PEZ - yeah, that is
a joke :)
expensive even for limited.
I'm too expensive, I don't have haste, you can't
re-animate me unless you've
got 4 red mana to pay. I win in limited, but
again, I'm too expensive. Oh,
and I don't have high enough toughness to feel
totally safe from burn. I'm
so expensive I probably don't even get considered
for the fattiest block
decks in history. Thanks guys.
This guy is a bad reanimator creature,
unless it has haste, because of the upkeep cost.
Although once he hits, its usually, 'good game.'
In limited this guy is WAYYY too much to
cast, but if he hits play game ends next turn when
he swings. His RRRR upkeep should be easier to
pay. Upkeep + pumpability = not a combo either.
Constructed: 2 (Must have haste to be any good.)
Limited: 2 (should be 1.5, but he hits harder than
most jillion mana casters.)
