Predator Ooze

Look out! It's the Blob! Actually, it's much more dangerous because it can't be killed even by magic (short of Dismember)! And you have to block it but there's no point in blocking it! And it's even more ridiculous than usual if you give it a Basilisk Collar! If you didn't have to be mono- or close to mono-green to use it, I'd probably advise everyone to give up now.

Today's card of the day is Predator Ooze which is a three mana Green 1/1 that is Indestructible, gains a +1/+1 counter whenever it attacks, and whenever a creature it deals damage dies on that turn it gets a +1/+1 counter.  The triple Green limits this to mono-Green decks, but with any equipment or aura support it is a very impressive threat. 

Indestructible that automatically increases in size is an excellent basis for a creature and if Deathtouch, Hexproof, Trample, or others are added it can definitely win games.  Green has many choices for a three drop, but expect to see this in at least a few builds as a midgame focus.
 
For Limited the triple Green is a major drawback which can keep the Ooze from seeing play until the later stages of the game in anything that isn't mono-Green.  Being Indestructible is still useful at any point though as it can block an attacker until removal is available, which can help increase the Ooze's size, and it is quite difficult for an opponent to stop.  Even a few attacks turns this into one of the larger creatures in the format and an opponent forced to block it is often delaying the inevitable.  A first pick in Booster if you feel confident in sticking to the color and for Sealed is best used when your Green pool is already strong and can form the bulk of your build.

       Welcome to Pojo.com’s card of the day section. Today we are looking at Predator Ooze from Dark Ascension. Predator ooze is a green rare creature ooze that costs three green mana for a 1/1. Predator ooze is indestructible, whenever Predator Ooze attacks it gets a +1/+1 counter, and whenever a creature dealt damage by Predator Ooze dies put a +1/+1 counter on Predator Ooze.

      Predator Ooze is one of the more practically awesome cards from Dark Ascension. Predator ooze has a low casting cost, making it easy to play. It has three really amazing abilities, making it a worthy grab, and useful in any green deck. Whether used for defense, or just to keep sending on attack runs, this guy is extremely useful in every situation.

     I really have nothing bad to say about the good old Predator Ooze.

Welcome back readers todays card is an indestructible ooze how cool is that? In standard not that cool it is slow to become powerful and is shut down early by -1/-1 counters and by powerful cards such as Tragic Slip relegating this card to mostly non competitive play. In extended and eternal this guy suffers the same problems, high commitment to green, slow, and just doesn’t fit into any existing archetypes for now although it could change. In legacy and vintage too expensive and not worth a slot in your deck or the mana cost. In casual and multiplayer is where this card shines an infinite chum blocker or a creature that can become huge is almost always useful. It is also powerful in commander and I can personally attest to it combined with The Mimeoplasm. In limited its heavy green commitment and slowness are strikes against it but it could be a solid creature. Overall a powerful ooze for casual not nessecarily constructed players but an interesting and fun card.
