I think this card did very well to make the top
five, for a card that's consistently overrated.
No, really. I've heard so many people comment
that it's a good thing Ravenous Baloth didn't
make the Tenth Edition because Chameleon
Colossus is "strictly better." I always tell
them that I disagree - Chameleon Colossus may be
generally better, especially against
Bitterblossom and Shriekmaw, but it's worse
against Oblivion Ring and other Pacifism-type
effect, as well as Sower of Temptation. The
Chameleon never falls to Sudden Death, but it
sometimes falls to Flame Javelin... so it evens
out in the end. Nonetheless, it's a very strong
card, can win games on its own, and is possibly
the best green Merfolk ever printed; and despite
my loyalty to Ravenous Baloth, if there was a
way to play both of them at once, I would.
Another card I did not pick, but still is high
on my list. It's cheap and the most importart
part is that it is pro black. The pro black made
this card ten times better that what it could
have been. It gave green a fighting chance
against blacks superior removal spells. Again I
do not own a play set of this card but when I
do, I will use them in a deck.
5: Chameleon Colossus
The reason this is such a good card is not
because of its pump ability, although that
certainly helps. The reason CC is so good is
because it fits in the metagame. Immune to most
burn spells at the time and resistant to one of
the most common forms of removal, Shriekmaw, or
terror/nameless inversion in Fae and you can see
why this is a valuble card.
In addition to that it is a very effcient beater
for G. Limited bomb with the ability to end the
game in a few turns and a fairly easy to pay
This is one of the best 4-drops they've printed
in a while. It's in the color that usually has
extra mana to devote to abilities like this, the
trample he lacks, and you can even put it in
your elf deck since it's a changeling. Not to
mention one doubling of its power plus double
strike can be lethal(where Rafiq comes in) or
loxodon warhammer to get the most out of him.
Monday - Chameleon Colossus
One of the better green fatties printed
recently. The changeling is useful, but the
pro-black ability is what makes this card good.
Unfortunately, nowadays you do really need to
keep 4 mana open after you play him or else he
might get burned off the board in no time. He's
also missing trample, but you can't have it all.
If you're playing green and not using this,
you'd better have a good reason.
Good in limited too. Even without the pump, a
4/4 pro-black for 2GG is hard to pass up.
Constructed - 4
Casual - 4
Limited - 4
