[CON] Shambling Remains

    Quote from zesty234
    The new "Gouger" isn't a 4/4.... he's a 4/3 and has unearth..... he's fantastic..and uncommon obv....


    This is Zesty's quote from the Bolas thread. I thought it deserved its own thread.

    From the creator of the Bolas thread, his friend said it was the new gouger and costs some combination of red and black. So I presume it has a CC of 3, but I don't know if it's 1RB, or RRB, or RBB.

    Don't know the name either.

    Update (Thanks Zesty!):

    Shambling Remains :1mana::symr::symb:
    (Creature - Zombie?) (U)
    Can't block
    Unearth :symr::symb:
    4/3

    The compiled orb results show a hit for 1RB but not for RBB or RRB.

    If his Unearth is any cheaper or perhaps something like :symb::symr:, it would be out of this world good. Blightning Aggro FTW! Smile

    Think you forgot that this is a gouger... therefore it should be something like:

    Awesome New Gouger
    :1mana::symb::symr:
    Uncommon
    Creature - Horror(?)
    Awesome New Gouger can't block
    Unearth 2R(?)
    4/3

    it needs something to balance cost / power ratio.

    If he's being referred to as the new "gouger" it will mean he can't block. Otherwise, why reference gouger?
  • #10
    Well the drawback on gouger was that he can't block.
    This was originally being called the new "gouger" because they thought it was a 4/4 for 3cc.
    But Zesty said he is 4/3 not 4/4.

    Scarland Thrinax?

    My guess is Toxic Iguanar.

    Iguanar says lizard says red. Toxic says black. Toxic also says some sort of disgusting, poisonous ability ... like rising out of a graveyard.

    Infectious Horror could fit the flavor just as easily though.
    I just opened a Planar Chaos booster and pulled an Extirpate and a Damnation in the same pack.

    Doesn't mean it can't block just cause it's a gouger. Toxic Iguanar could mean that you lose 2 life when it comes into play, making it hurt more with unearth......

    Toxis Iguanar sounds right.

    Infectious Horror sounds like it has an activated ability beyond Unearth.

    Also, this is all still speculation? The drawback could be terrible- I'm sure by Gouger, he just meant RB 4 power creature for 3, not so much the Can't Block part. (not saying it can't happen, just saying it sounds a little overpowered still...)

    It can't be toxic iguanar - it is red accordingly to Zesty in numbers crunch and the same apply to infectious horror - it is black.

    So, the Scarland Thrinax makes more sense, specially because we know that the name sounds both Grixis and Jund

    He said the drawback was better than Gouger. So, at least, it's something different.
  • #17
    There isnt a lot that could be considered better than cant block and at the same time a drawback. What is that blocking it speaks of anyway?

    Actually, a toughness of 3 makes all the difference in a world where Incinerate and Nameless Inversion are seeing play... Unearth is very nice though!

    I'd wish he'd just be 3/4, even if he cant block. A 3 toughness makes him vulnerable to most of the removals in Standard.

    That's a nameless inversion that didn't hit ram gang or FoD and with unearth he still comes back and beats. Seems good.

    He doesn't really say that it is a gouger so being a thrinax is a possiblity.
    Here is my stab at the card. Grin

    Scarland Thrinax
    :1mana::symb::symr:
    Uncommon
    Creature - Lizard
    At the beginning of your upkeep sacrifice Scarland Thrinax unless you sacrifice a land you control.
    Unearth BR

    Sacrificing a land is not better than can't block, especially since his 3 toughness doesn't make him the best blocker anyway. I could maybe see a one time sac, but not every turn.

    Scarland Thrinax

    When Scarland Thrinax comes into play, sacrifice Scarland Thrinax unless you sacrifice a land you control.

    Or even better...

    That makes him kind of bad if you ask me. This drawback seems like to much.

    Someone said his drawback is better than gougers..( and thats just not blocking)
    This would be unplayable i think..
    Why would you sacrifice lands just to keep alive a 4/3? Smile
    You can also sac a land and then get it killed so its a 2 for 1.
    And dont tell me unearth covers for it Grin
    I think its more like you lose 1 life at upkeep or something.

    I would bet it's more like this.

    perhaps?

    If Scarland Thrinax would be dealt damage, instead it deals that damage to you.

    Punisher effect? and less hasseling than not being able to block....
