    Instant wraths? I hope you don't mean Alchemist's Refuge/Supreme Verdict.

    ive been patiently waiting for something to get excited about in red and white and i keep being disappointed. i get the feeling that theyre designing this guild to be a 'better than the sum of it's parts' guild with individually weak creatures that synergize with each other to be decent. not what i was hoping for. i look at that new ghost council compared to this and the other boros stuff released so far and i feel so let down.

    What's the link to this on the mothership?

    The art looks like it was just cropped out of the planeswalkers guide...

    Edit: I guess not, still I'd like to see the link.

    Foundry Champion is a "nuetered" flametongue kavu and to be honest with the amount of pushing creatures they're doing... they should have done a BETTER version of it. This guy is pretty terrible in all thing outside limited... Frown

    with the batallion mechanic and some of the creatures printed, i think wizards might have one more card against board wipes...right now theres what, rootborn defenses and golgari charm? otherwise boros will be limited to human or rakdos aggro Frown
    Who cares if its good in EDH or Limited? 95% of cards are.

    This could've been 3RW or 2RRW or even RRWW, but eh, great in limited.

    Would have been far more reasonable at RRWW

    I know exactly how you feel Frown I'm sure the best is yet to come, but I don't like the whole you-need-lots-of-creatures-or-everything-fails vibe I've seen so far. Maybe we had the wrong expectations for Boros.

    Realistically, its ETB ability probably won't be doing too much damage unless you set it up the turn or two beforehand, but it's pretty good. It definitely fits what we managed to see of the prerelease card, so I look forward to playing him. Still wish the promo was Firemane Butt-kicker, though.

    Just realizing it can hit creatures, too, you don't to have too many guys out to make him a removal spell. Not bad.

    looks weak. the only thing that has an appeal for boros so far is aurelia. and its best for EDH.

    how have you been patiently waiting? we're on day 2 of official previews. there are only 40/249 cards known so far, 10 of which are lands that we knew about when RTR was spoiled because they complete cycles. To me, it sounds like you're incredibly impatient. I have no idea if Boros will end up being good, but the reason I have no idea is that I HAVEN'T SEEN MANY CARDS YET. maybe you'll end up being right, but it's still too early to say.

    This card is absolutely awful.

    Prolly meant waiting since the annoucement that Boros would be in block 2...

    Foxtrot is right. We've only seen 4 non-land Boros marked cards, so yes, it is way too early to be disappointed. But all the other guilds have already got some pretty cool stuff compared to Boros.

    No. Wood Elemental is absolutely awful. This card is just average.

    Now, if we could just get that goblin walker. Preferably before the part in the storyline where he planeswalked right into Progenitus.

    Whoever had Battalion in R+D needs to get their head checked. It's just a rehash of other mechanics, and it's terrible.

    I guess its alright, nothing amazing about it but alright, as others have said its an Inferno Titan who went to the vet and got fixed.

    Meaningless in constructed, but still pretty powerfull in Limited, like any creature that also acts as removal.

    Boards easily stall with 4-5 creatures, then this guy kills something and acts as a heavy attacker and hard to kill, as its a 4/4 "shade".


    So easily a Limited card, totally fine at that.

    10 bucks says it will be on Boros Charm. I mean...it just screams PUT LIGHTNING HELIX ON THERE! Although it doesn't fit the theme of One thing one color does, one the other does, and then one thing they both do.....dangit, just shot my theory in the foot.

    Lol. I had to check that Wood Elemental a couple times to make sure what I was reading was right. Now THAT is a bad card. Requires you to sacrifice lands to give it any power AND the lands have to be forests AND they have to be untapped. Whoa...

    You could play it as a 4/4 on turn 8 after sacrificing half of your lands. Nice card.
