[CON]MtG.com Jan. 19th - Bloodhall Ooze, Nicol Bolas, tokens

  • #1
    Since no Rumor Mill mod is on, I'll do this. One thread for all previews, locked until time, yadda yadda yadda. Watch the spam.





    EDIT:

    The English render of Nicol Bolas is the only that has not his left wing reaching out of the box, all other languages have it, see here. Apparently a mistake of the WotC's web team. So please, no more "Why is Bolas not reaching out of the frame?" posts.

    The Ooze will be a $30 rare. Count on it.

    One mana for that thing is silly.

    I read the ooze wrong at first. Didn't realize it GREW each turn. YIKES. That thing will get big.
  • #7
    I think that the ooze will definately see play in the "Jund Ramp" deck that is currently in Standard. Overall in constructed, it doesn't seem that good. The art on the tokens is SO amazing!
  • #8
    when is the five color aggro deck coming out? seriosuly, that just gets more insane with every card made in conflux.
  • #9
    Ooze really isn't that good. The fact that it starts out as a 1/1 and essentially requires good board position to be decent makes it terrible on its own and late game its a crap 1/1. I mean... it's not bad...

    i just hope each other color has one of these 1 drops that care for other colors

    turn 1: lotus petal for red, ooze, bayou and cast a black/green hybrid 1 drop.
    turn 2: taiga, rancor, rancor, swing for 7.

    it even sounds sick in vintage

    I seriously doubt that the ooze will be able to enlarge itself on turn 2 without some special help (cards like elvish spirit guide or simian spirit guide or other zero-mana accelerators), but the potential to be seriously scary after turn 2 is nuts.

    Bloodhall Ooze- Best Ooze ever(not that there was much competition), play this 1st turn and then follow it up with a Necrogenesis(or another cheap GB creature like Woodland Mimic) and you've got a 3/3 attacker turn 3, a 5/5 turn 4 etc. etc., This is limited solid(even trigger only on 1 of the colors each turn is solid) and constructed test worthy.

    Nicol Bolas- as spoiled, still think he's a bit expensive to have a major impact(maybe worth a 2 of in a QnT or Grixis control deck).

    Tokens- Both unusually ugly, particularly the angel, it's probably my least favorite angel art ever.

    And I like Bloodhall Ooze...

    bloodhall isn't that good in standard, limited wise it might do well but thats about it. tokens loooooook so good.

    Bloodhall Ooze is some good with Bitterblossom and Fertile Ground.
    The only good thing about this post is the edible chocolate roaches they gave out! Mmm mmm!

    Wait a minute, edible roaches don't crawl! EDIBLE ROACHES DON'T CRAWL!

    Not quite each turn, only during your turn. But still, awesome for one mana.

    Let's see - the only one mana G/B card is Odious Trow. Not exactly stellar in constructed. Two mana has more possibilities, the best being Darkheart Sliver.

    Nice design. I don't think it's going to be broken in constructed, but super-awesome in limited.

    seriously? in a world of hybrids and multicolor, there's bound to be something even marginally ok with this.

    too bad paradox haze isnt around anymore.

    that will really turn this thing into a beast

    I don't have any hard numbers on this, but I'm targeted more often than a black guy driving a beat-up sedan with a broken tail-light and no license plate, and Cy's well aware of that.

    Bloodhall Ooze doesn't fall right into a jund ramp deck that well short of t2 fertile and turn 3 thrinax and most of the ones I've seen don't run thrinax.

    I have to admit I let out a little "why would you print that" chuckle when I saw the Ooze.

    The ooze is great, but unfortunetally, it wont start to grow until turn 3. It only lets you put counters on during the upkeep, but still, +2/+2 permanently from turn 3 and on is nothing to sneeze at at all. I dont think its goyf 2.0 but i think it is incredibly powerful that deserves some mention in some decks.

    Did anyone notice that Bolas doesn't have the partially-out-of-frame artwork like all the other' walkers had. That sucks, they could have his horns pop up a bit or something like that, looking at the card, it wouldn't be that difficult...

    Wow Ooze is cool probably going to be an underrated card till some pro designs the perfect deck that can hallmark the card.

    It is by far the best ooze ever made though its not even close.

    I think people are underating the fact that even if he only gets +1/+1 for each upkeep thats damn nice. If he is pulling in +2/+2 a turn great thats awesome but just like tarmo you don't need to build a deck around him to make him pretty dang good.

    I like this play though

    Turn 1 Forest Bop
    Turn 2 Swamp Bitterblossom+Ooze
    Turn 3 Get 1/1 faerie+3/3 ooze.

    Not really a god hand there just a pretty damn nice hand.

    It does. It's just that Bolas fits in the standard card frame. Because he's that awesome.

    The Ooze will not be played in competitive standard. Feel free to sig this.

    Then I did this:
