With the cost of this card being a little
expensive and an ability that's nowhere near
guaranteed to go off much in a constructed game,
he's got limited uses. But, speaking of which,
in limited, he's definitely a bit better. And in
a group game, this guy has potential to be
Ginormous (pronounced jeye-norm-us, a cross
between gigantic and enormous).
It's like reverse Psychatog! I'm sorry, unless
you're running a milling deck and are using this
as a sort of "Plan B", it's really just Leyline
of the Void with a 4/4 attached. Hardly worth
getting excited about.
Void Maw - One
of the most powerful mechanics for limited in
Coldsnap is Recover. It lets you use your spells
over and over to great effect. There's only one
total disabler for recover in the set - and
that's Void Maw. But it does so much more than
just prevent recover. It stops any
goes-to-the-graveyard effect, but without
preventing cards from eventually reaching the
graveyard. It's also a whopping big trampler.
Black doesn't get tramplers that often, so it's
important to take notice when one does pop up
(and when it isn't called Lord of the Pit). Void
Maw can be incredibly strong in limited, though
it's probably a bit too slow for any real
This… is a weird card. I can’t really see it
being played main deck in today’s Standard
environment, because Skeletal Vampire is so good
right now. Later, however, he may be sideboarded
in against Knights a la Haakon or Reanimator. He
costs 6, though, so time will tell if he is good
or not. He yells, “Abuse me!” but I don’t know
if he can be.
In casual, this is a fun card. Hose your
opponent’s grave and get a big fatty with
trample = casual player’s dream.
In Limited, this guy should be picked very
highly. Once he is in play, the only things that
can stop it are Chill to the Bone and Gelid
Shackles. After that, the opponent has only a
few turns to live.
Constructed- 2/5 for now
