Five power for five mana... with an evasion
ability.... and haste.... and an ability that
lets you put more than one out for the price of
only one? Yes this is awesome. Was there ever
Not much to say about this guy; he hits fast,
and he hits amazingly hard. Removing him is
almost a waste of time with three other copies
in your deck, and the timing of the "return all
cards..." trigger is sure to catch out an
over-eager blue player at least once. Like
Guildpact's Ghost Council of Orzhova or
Kamigawa's Seshiro the Anointed, this is a card
that it's worth building a deck around. Too bad
he'll spend so little time in Extended with
Magic Noob in Canada since 2002
5 mana for a 5/4 haste flier is decently
efficient, and its revival ability works even
when its countered. Sadly, I do not think there
is a efficient way to dump enough of this guy in
the graveyard to make it playable in Standard.
In other constructed formats, there are better
win conditions for a graveyard dependant deck.
It's decently efficient, but I'd rather play
Tombstalker over this.
Demigod of Revenge
This card has serious
constructed potential. Black is chock full of
quality control cards right now (Damnation,
Tendrils of Corruption, Corrupt) and this is an
excellent finisher. Splashing red for Void or
Molten Disaster gives the deck extra answers for
Casual players always
love big dragons, and this is even better.
In limited, I would
have a tough time letting this guy get past me
at any point. Pick to play or to hate draft.
Constructed: With four of these little guys in
your deck you will have to find a way to get
them into the graveyard. Standard there is not
much outlets for this to happen, except maybe a
madness deck or u/B draw and discard. Maybe
Dredge might use it, but the Extended season is
over for this year. Five for a 5/4 flying, haste
is not bad at all. We will see for constructed.
Casual: This guy will be everybody's favorite
new big black or red flyer. It should be really
good for any causal deck. But some of your
friends will not like to see it as much.
Limited: This guy is a bomb for Sealed and
Draft. Sealed he will work with any deck with
red or black in it. It does not have to be both
colors, but you will need five red or black mana
if you try to splash him. Most players will make
that mistake when building a deck with him in
it. I would stick with just black and red, and
hopefully the card pool will have some good red
and black spells to support it. First pick in
draft, for all three packs. First pack first
pick and will try to stick to those two colors.
Second pack, if I was not going r/b I will try
to change colors or splash one if possible.
Third pack, not in colors hate draft. 5/4 flying
with haste is not something I would want to
face. His ability sucks for limited, but if
someone somewhere ever got 2 or even 3 in a
sealed deck, I would like to know about it.
It's cool to see the Hrybid mana back. I think
this card will see some serious play. But
Tormod's Crypt and Extripate are still in the
majority of sidedecks to hose its ability.
Limitied : 5 for a solid creature, 1 for the
