Tarmogoyf
 
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.
