Mindleech Mass

This card is utterly terrible. It cost 8 mana for a 6/6 creature. Yeah it has an ability. Yeah, it has Trample. That still doesn't make it acceptable.

By the time you cast the creature, the ability won't be that great. Your opponent has probably played through a large number of their key cards at that point. Unless you're using some graveyard manipulation trick to get it into play, I wouldn't even bother with this creature.

Constructed: 2
Casual: 3.5
Limited: 1.5

Mindleech Mass

Brutal, but a bit slow to hit the board. Still worth throwing in your limited deck if you have a worthwhile Blue Black build (they do exist). If you get to hit your opponent, you will definitely hear some groans. In casual, this could be a card that some sinister casual player would like to build a deck around.

Constructed - 2
Casual - 3
Limited - 3.5

Mindleech Mass

I just do not like cards that cost eight mana. They usually aren't good enough to see play, and even if they are, it is usually because you are either (a) tricking them into play or (b) basing an entire deck around getting it into play. Now, don't get me wrong, there have been good eight-drops -- Akroma, Angel of Wrath for one. However, Mindleech Mass just isn't doing anything for me. It costs too much for too small of a body and an effect that is mediocre at best. As long as you have a turn to react, Mindleech Mass isn't that frightening to be across the board from.

Constructed Rating: 1.5
Casual Rating: 1.5
Limited Rating: 2.0 (eh, big body)
