Last week I was talking about the Atog tribe,
and I think a lot of what I said flavor-wise
applies just as well to Lhurgoyfs. There are
plenty of things that have similar mechanical
function, but the Lhurgoyf is something that is
all Magic's own, and which makes the universe
unique. That's why it's a little sad that we
haven't seen them for such a long time, aside
from the various Masters printings of Tarmogoyf.
Yes, he's the king of the tribe for tournament
play, and there are almost no creatures as
purely efficient (again from the competitive
standpoint). But I think we lose out a little if
he's the extent of our interaction with what
should be one of Magic's signature creature
categories - let him be the reminder to go nuts
with Mortivore and Traumatize, or use Magnivore
in your prowess deck.
Until next week, play with older cards, and
don't lose track of what's in your graveyard.
