Seven mana is a high price to pay for something
that doesn't win you the game in and of itself.
But I like the fact that you can drop this and
then swing with whatever creatures you have,
greatly modified. Now if only it gave itself
protection from red, so it could dodge
Shatter-type effects. In Constructed, this is
likely to be too much mana for not a direct
enough impact. But in Limited, where games drag
on and artifact hate is never maindecked, this
could be a veritable bomb. And of course there's
casual, where everyone wants to turn their
Grizzly Bears into Bears of Wrath.
A card that, if your opponent cannot deal with,
will probably win you the game. However, there
are much better win conditions available, as a)
this requires other creatures to do anything,
and b) it's fragile. Just stick to the many
better win conditions that are around in
Standard, and if you're running an aggro deck,
you'll never hit 7 mana anyway.
I bet this will see a lot of play in casual.
Akroma is very popular, and giving all your
creatures her abilities will probably be popular
In limited, it's expensive, but it wins you the
game if you drop it.
So this is
the final card of the Akroma set and by far the
worst. For 7 mana all of your creatures become
the original Akroma. I just feel that this
card is not that great. It looks good to turn
all of your creatures into beasts but you still
have to creatures to boost up. At this late in
the game when you drop 7 you want to win the
game. This card may do it but doesnt guarantee
anything. Now against red/black decks this card
will probably win you the game as it makes all
of your stuff untouchable. Will see some play
in weenie decks to finish off opponents. It's
biggest problem is it gives many abilities but
no addition to the power of the creatures.
Constructed - 3
Limited - 3
Casual - 3

Well, this selection is in honor of Memorial
Day. It's certainly an interesting card and does
pay tribute to Akroma very well, however, the
card itself is overcosted by at least 2. If it
were 4 or 5, I'd be happy to play it, in limited
at least. For what you get, it is probably
costed properly by design at 7, however, it is
unplayable at that cost.

Wow, That's a
lot of keywords! But for 7 mana, I can a lot of
that will essentially win me the game. Simic Sky
Swallower comes to
mind for the 7 mana spot.
But let's say this is already out for some
reason, you still need to
have a decent size body for the abilities to
shine. For example,
trample doesn't do much with a 2/2.
In casual, my friend used it, but seeing as how
he never used it as
he lost every time he had this in his hand, you
know this card is bad.
