Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
Chriome Mox turned out to be the chase card in our
Pre-Sale eBay Mirrodin auctions a few weeks ago.
People were going wack over this thing, and
bidding it up like crazy, with some bids going
over $25 per card. We have it for $22 at our
shop and on our Website, and we still can't keep
it in stock. So, whether anyone feels this
card is crappy, amazing, or whatever, people are
falling over themselves to own it. Time will tell
if it finds its way into constructed decks.
limited, it really doesn't seem worth the slot.
Ah yes, the other
chase word - "Mox." As a result, no matter the
playability of this card, it will sell for much
higher than it should for a while.
I just have a
problem seeing where this can fit in. Most of
the decks that want mana acceleration don't want
to have to give up a card to do it. And if they
do, that card will usually come back at some
point (Skirk Prospector). Maybe I'll see this
card's full potential after states, but until
then, it's just not worth chasing.
In limited, it's
crap. Don't bother playing it, or even drafting
it if you're not keeping what you draft.
In constructed you may not want to remove a
piece of a combo card in your hand for mana,
which is where mox diamond would be better. No
ones heard of any real ways to use this card,
and Mox Diamond didn't see all that much play
so... we'll see, but looks bleak.
In limited its just not worth the slot.
Chrome Mox is just great for fast aggressive
decks. While it represents inherent card
disadvantage in a deck with 30 creatures do you
really care if it gets you 1 turn up on mana
drops? This card is really a great one - catch 'em
while you can.
Constructed - Mana is good, Speed
is good, Mox is good - 4.50
Limited - Less important in a format where
games are always a bit slower - 3.45
"Any card with the
word Mox in it will be a chase rare"
I don't like this
card much. Sure it is mana acceleration, but it
comes at the cost of card disadvantage. And I
don't know about anyone else, but if I put a
card in a deck, it's there to serve a purpose.
In playtesting, my
friend has these in his white weenie deck. While
it occasionaly helps him get a turn one
Skyhunter, it is often a dead card late game,
and it sucks up card advatage. If i were to put
this in myd eck, I would do one copy, but then I
wouldnt be sure to have it in my opening hand,
so yeah. Dead card.
In limited, it is no
better. Just be happy that your limited event
paid for itself (if you pick it), and use other
2.5 (Being a little generous)
Limited rating: 2.5
Rare Draft value:
very high, considering it wont upset anyone else
because they weren't gonna play it either.
