Vorosh, the Hunter

A G/U/B dragon? That gets SIX +1/+1 counters whenever it attacks and connects(if you pay 2G)? It looks absolutely amazing. But let's think about it seriously for a while--you amass 3GUB, and cast this guy. He attacks, you connect, he grows to a 12/12. Attack again, you connect--wait, do you get more counters? No, because the game's over. Or your opponent Condemned it or something. The phrase "put six +1/+1 counters" hints at a size this guy will never grow to. Also, G/U/B is an almost unheard of combination, so I don't see this guy seeing nearly as much tournament play as his brothers. But he'll always have a slot in Sam's five-color dragon deck that he likes to bring out every so often to show off to the kids at the card shop. And his steadily increasing beatdown could be useful in breaking up the Martyr of Sands combo wreaking havoc in Standard currently. Also, he is in the colors of mana acceleration and reanimation, and he does demand to be answered fast, so there may be a rogue deck waiting for him.

Constructed- 2.5
Casual- 4.5
Limited- 4

Vorosh the Hunter

I think he will be useable. Lately, it seems the dragons comeing out of Wizards R&D are pretty strong. I don't reall ylike this ability as much as the other dragons in this set, but it's still a solid finish. The only downside though is that this color combo already has Simic Sky Swallower.

Constructed: 2.5
Casual: 4
Limited: 4.5

Vorosh, the Hunter

A Timmy card if there ever was one. Part of a spin-off on the cycle of Invasion dragons, Vorosh gets bigger every time he hits...much bigger. He does win the game quickly, but he's tricky to cast. If U/G/B control ever pops up as a deck type, expect this guy to be in it as he finishes off your opponent very quickly. Right now, however, I don't see him getting a lot of play due to the colors he is.

In casual, he's a big dragon. He'll be very popular.

In limited, I'd grab him if I were playing 2 of the 3 colors and then splash the third. He's an absolute bomb.

Constructed - 3.5 (with potential)
Casual - 5
Limited - 4

Vorosh, the Hunter

This card is part of a cycle that mirrors the very popular cycle of Legendary Dragons from Invasion. Each of the new dragons use a twisted combination of colors to help quench Timmy's unslakable thirst for huge flying fatties.

And what a fatty! You thought 6/6 was big? Smack someone with this once, and it becomes a 12/12. This thing can get HUGE. Over the course of a chaos game with some friends, provided you somehow stop the rain of Putrefys, Condemns, and Pongifys (Shielding Plax, anyone?) this thing can grow to truly epic proportions. While clunky in a constructed tournament as a win condition, the wow factor of this card is quite high in a casual multiplayer game, especially when it starts destroying opponents with a single swing.

Constructed 1/5. This is not a constructed card, plain and simple.

Limited 4/5. Running the right colors or some Zombify variants? You just got your bomb.

Casual 5/5. Huge flying dragon. Cool art. Huge effect. Savage beats. You will have loads of fun with this, as well as the other dragons of the cycle.
