Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
Worldslayer - Very interesting spin on Obliterate,
I think this is a very interesting and fun card
just not very playable in a tournament
environment. I would love to see someone build a
deck around this and astral slide.
Player - "Attack with
Exalted Angel (or insert a creature you like more)
with Worldslayer, when the Worldslayer's ability
goes on the stack I slide out my Angel."
Opponent - "%&$*"
"Pop Goes the
World." 10 mana and an unblocked attack later,
you have a reset of the board. Unfortunately,
the only deck that may want this would have long
since ended the game by then. If you want a
reset, use Obliterate. It's less conditional,
and you can plan around it.
In limited, probably
not. again, you could still plan around this,
but you have to get through unblocked (or
trample through). No thanks.
A touch slow, but a blow-up-the-world effect is
still a blow-up-the-world
effect, so it may see some fun use in
constructed... but not as a 4 of.
And especially not since the new disk is
available. But perhaps some deck
will really need to blow up land. And a reset
button in limited will often
make the deck, but I'd say only if you have a
neurok spy or something
similar to assure the hit.
limited - 3
constructed - 3
Basically its too expensive for constructed,
but in limited its a restart button, but its
hard to get through if your already losing and
need a restart button.
Worldslayer is interesting as a reset button but I
am having a hard time thinking of decks that would
look to this over similar cards. Perhaps it would
be nice for quick aggressive decks except it costs
5 so these decks would have to ramp up to 5 mana
quick. It seems great but I don't think it is as
good as it seems.
Constructed - To me it just
lacks synergy with the decks that would be able to
use it best - 2.85
Limited - Having a solid reset is always
attractive but can you get your critter through-
"I like swords"
I love the art.
This is my favourite Mirrodin art. :( Why has
it been attached to this card?
There has to be a
combo for this in constructed. I just have no
idea what. As far as my knowledge goes, you
can't slide anythign out to save it, as once the
slide goes, your creatures are gone for good.
Same with the new "safe haven" card, Synod
Sanctum. The only time this would be good is if
your opponent had board control, but if they
have board control, not much of a chance of this
getting through. And if you can get this
through, odds are you wouldn't want to anyway.
Maybe we should keep our eye on future sets for
this to combo with something.
Limited, I can see
it being more useful. Creatures with evasion
are few, and if your opponent has greater number
of creatures/artifacts and what not, and you can
get past his defenses, it can break a creature
lock. Also, you can prepare for this coming,
your opponent cannot. As long as you play it
smart and dont slap it down as soon as you can,
announcing to the table to hold back resources.
