Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger
 
Each of the Praetors is very powerful in their own way, and absolutely brutal when it comes to keeping an opponent under control. Vorinclex is of further interest because there are very few mana-denial cards in recent sets, and he is shockingly powerful in addition to being a rare example. Most decks hope to spend mana every turn; with him in play, that's reduced to every other turn, and effectively even less because of the Mana Flare effect he grants his controller. The only wrinkle with that is that his cost is high enough that his controller may have already depleted their hand, and the acceleration that can be used to get him out early can fuel late-game cards like Sphinx's Revelation or Feral Hydra as well - he's not essential to using such cards. Of course, I don't think Phyrexians really have the concept of overkill.

Today's card of the day is Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger which is an eight mana Green 7/6 Legendary with Trample that gives you extra mana when you tap lands for mana and can prevent opposing lands from untapping.  The high mana cost and effects both put this almost exclusively into mana acceleration builds that can still benefit from additional mana after this hits play.  It works as a threat offensively, accelerates, and hinders any opponents somewhat.  Overall this is a strong choice for Commander, Multiplayer, and Limited formats as aside from the mana cost it is a very efficient single card to have available and fits into existing builds well.

Double mana on an 8-drop body doesn't instill the greatest confidence. The freeze effect on your opponents lands ain't great either, but... if you cheat it out, maybe? I still don't like it though.
