Demigod of Revenge

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 any doubt?

Constructed- 4.5
Casual- 4.5
Limited- 4.9

Demigod of Revenge
 
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 Buried Alive...

Demigod of Revenge

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.

Constructed: 1.5/5
Casual: 3/5
Limited: 3/5

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 Chameleon Colossus.

            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: 4

Casual: 5

Limited: 5

Miguel Demigod of Revenge

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.

Constructed: 3
Casual: 4
Limitied : 5 for a solid creature, 1 for the ability.

Enjoy.
Miguel
