Endless One
 
The Eldrazi as a species are inspired by the tales from Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos, and Endless One specifically seems to be Magic's equivalent of a bhole - a wormlike monster which is found in the Dimension of Dream near Unknown Kadath. In some stories, bholes are so large that if you could see their head and tail at the same time, you would become insane; that probably won't happen with this card, unless you get confused by a cost-reducing effect like Eldrazi Temple. Regardless, this is an excellent finisher for a Tron deck, a hilarious Plan B for Heartbeat of Spring, the best late-game plan available in Tiny Leaders, and destined to be incredibly popular in casual play.

Today's card of the day is Endless One which is a X mana colorless that enters play with X +1/+1 counters.  This is an excellent card for any colorless themed deck, decks that can manipulate +1/+1 counters, or multicolor builds that need a flexible option for whatever mana might be available.  It can be played turn one as an early threat or at any point later on a very exact curve, though that does leave it a bit weaker than the top creatures that go beyond the one mana for one power and toughness concept.  Overall a very solid creature in most decks that can offer even more to some dedicated designs.
 
In Limited this is a fairly easy first pick in Booster as it doesn't lock you into a color and unlike other eldrazi it doesn't force mana ramp either.  It is also a great topdeck, a weak but usable turn one play, and has quite a bit of colorless support in the format.  In Sealed it is unlikely that there is any deck this can't be included in as it can always be cast for at least some benefit in any color combination.

Endless One
 
Whew. This is the stuff of legend. For so long, we've been stuck with hydras and whatnot who automatically either had a basic color cost stuck to it, or a double X cost. Now, we've got an X creature where it's all even P/T for the cost. Which hey, is decent. There's plenty of enablers for counter abuse, and this loves it. Trample would've been nice, but you get what you pay for, especially with this card.
