Eldrazi Mimic
 
This is one of the most explicitly Lovecraftian-vibe creatures in the entire block, and for a sub-genre of horror that emphasizes dark secrets and the corrupting influence of creeping insanity, the Mimic is awfully public about what it does as part of the Eldrazi deck that's caused so much discussion - and crisis - in Modern. The thing is, it's actually a reasonably fair effect when you're casting other Eldrazi and similar creatures more or less on curve. But it seems like nobody is doing that right now: the temptation of discounted colorless cards is just too great, I guess (some sort of modern version of the Tinker phenomenon, I suppose). Even when Eye of Ugin and Eldrazi Temple become out of fashion, either by agreement or by executive order, this card will still remain pretty solid as long as green gets mana acceleration of various types.

Wasn't the overall idea for Eldrazi to be somewhat control oriented this time around? Sure, you've got some beaters, but this card just wants to be the exception to the rule. It's something, but it isn't good.
