The bad news about this card is that it is only
good in combo decks. The good news is the only
combination necessary with this card is a bunch
of cheap spells. In limited formats, players
learned how to use this card to deal six points
(occasionally more) of game-ending damage. In
its time in constructed, Tendrils has been the
win condition of several combo decks, most
notably the Mind's Desire deck.
I honestly can't come up with a lot to say about
Tendrils of Agony. I wouldn't suggest running it
unless your deck is based around abusing Storm
-- it really isn't that hot of a card if it is
haphazardly thrown into any black deck. If you
play a deck based around abusing Storm and you
are playing black, then Tendrils of Agony should
absolutely be in your deck; it can easily win
you the game at a moment's notice. Overall, I
have to give Tendrils of Agony an average rating
across the board, as it really isn't useful
outside of a handful of situations, but in said
situations, it can be monstrous.
While it has no following in Type 2, Tendrils
has apparently found a niche in Type 1 decks,
where the brokeness of the format allows you to
play a bajillion spells in a single turn. Then
you Tendrils with Storm, and put a lot of hurt
on your opponent. Fun, Fun.
In other formats, Tendrils is pretty much a non
Constructed - 4
Casual - 2
Limited - 1.5
Agony- Uncommon- Scourge
hey peoples today we have the #1 "Vintage" Storm
card Tendrils of Agony.
in the beginning there was vintage. and then
came storm. many thought tendrils wasnt good,
but then someone made a deck using this useless
uncommon that made you win usually on turn 1/2.
then the deck boomed!!! ok thats our obscure
history lesson for today. Down here in there is
only 1 person who has a tendrils deck (tho he is
the only one to play vintage anyways...), and it
does usually win turn 1 or 2, making this deck a
force to be reckend with. probably the thing
that makes this card so good is the fact that
even if you counter the tendrils the storm
copies will still drain you dead.
constructed - 5/5 the perfict vintage... ok i
cant do this any more the perfict TYPE 1 card...
there i said it -_-
limited - 1/5 bah, i doubt you will be able to
play a good amount of spells and tendrils on the
casual - 3/5 i guess it could be use casually,
but to less effect then in type 1
final thought - its a Type 1 hall of famer
