Golgari Grave-Troll

This guy is a bit odd to me. Green doesn't worry to much about the graveyard. And if you wanted a similar creature, Lhurgoyf is available to you. And for that matter Mortivore is event better. I'm not so sure, what this card was meant to do. I'd pass on it in every format.

Constructed: 1.5
Casual: 1.5
Limited: 1.5
 

BMoor

Golgari Grave-Troll

The ultimate mid-to-late-game finisher for a Golgari deck, or any Green deck that ends up losing a lot of creatures along the way. Between regeneration and Dredge, it's almost impossible to get rid of, especially after the opponent has likely used most of his or her answers. And dedicated Green decks are chock full of creatures, so every dredge means the Grave-Troll comes back bigger and bigger. Awfully tricky in Limited, where you can't really afford to dredge very often, but a finisher anywhere else.

Constructed-3.8
Casual-3.8
Limited-2.2

Golgari Grave-Troll

Fun card if you build your deck around it. Get a bunch of creatures into your grave, or get IT into your grave and then dredge it. It's very difficult to deal with, especially with it's regeneration. Definitely play it in limited too, but be careful not to deck yourself.

Constructed - 3
Casual - 4
Limited - 4.5
