This is an interesting creature. My only issue
is that it's a tad bit expensive, even for
green. And in Red/Green decks, it's very likely
that you will have better creatures or something
better to do with your mana when you reach the
point that you can cast this guy. I'd expect
this card will be popular among the casual
hey peoples, if there is one thing to get myself
off my lazy butt and do CotDs again, its
Guildpact previews, today we have the Gruul's
leader, Borborygmos. Borborygmos sort of has a "psudo"
bloodthirst(the guilds mechanic), and thanks to
his trample the ability is actually quite good.
This dude has a huge body of 6/7 for only(haha
only) 7 mana. but his double red and green mana
cost keeps him from going out of his guild
colors unless the deck has heavy color fixing.
After looking at some of the other Gruul
spoilers this guy just seems like a joke simply
because he is just so expensive for his ability,
infact his ability supports swarms more than
guys that are already big (and the gruul has
lots of those), which possibly makes him useful
in a block R/G/W deck, which seems rather
powerful when you add in things such as
lightning helix, selesnya guildmage, glare of
subdual, and so on.
constructed- 2/5 he just isnt a very constructed
limited- 4/5 he is a big fatty that makes
everyone bigger fatties, sure ill take him
casual- 5/5 a great casual card for token decks
final thought- i dont see him being much of a
constructed player, or even casual since fangren
firstborns ability is just better
Oof....a bit too expensive to play in
constructed, but this thing is a bomb in Limited
play, and probably a lot of fun in casual. Borby
uses unfriendly colors of its guild, and it may
be hard to swing in limited because of that, but
Wizards has done a decent job of smoothing mana
for this block thus far, and I have no reason to
believe that will change but a bit. Fun offering
from the new Guildpact set!
Constructed - 2
Casual - 4
Limited - 4.5
