This is one of the new Eldrazi that most makes me wonder how someone forgot that Eye of Ugin exists. Worldwake wasn't even that long ago in an absolute sense! To be fair, World Breaker would be worth playing even without cards like the Eye. A creature this size, that removes almost any non-creature on entrance - and also doesn't die permanently! - is worth looking at for most mana costs. Even in a "regular" ramp deck it feels kind of unfair, and you could argue that that sort of deck can more easily spare lands to sacrifice and recast the Breaker.

A massive green creature... that isn't really green. It's a 5/7 that comes with an automatic Creeping Mold effect, and has reach to dominate the board for a while. And if you can generate colorless mana, you can even bring it back to your hand after it dies, forcing your opponent to deal with it all over again! The only trouble is that it doesn't come down until Turn Seven, but the Eldrazi have always had ways of getting big creatures into play 

Constructed- 2.5

Limited- 3

What, did acidic slime not do enough? Get out of here. Overcosted bull****. Seriously, I don't care if you have a recursion effect, I don't care that you exile. This is a waste of a mythic slot. It's barely worth a rare. I can't be nice about stuff like this anymore. It seems to be the way the winds are blowing and it annoys me as a card player, and enrages me as a consumer. But I get it. You have to have junk like this to make the chase rare look even better. But that's bad business, unless you're dipping your hand in the secondary market. ...I seem to have gotten off topic. Sure, people will play it, in tribal, or whatever. But that doesn't mean I have to like it. Pedestrian nonsense.
