Chromanticore

    Oh that is smart to use champion. And with karametra you can easily get all 5 colors.
    Champion himself wouldn't be too bad of a target himself. Honestly you can slap it on anything 3/3 or bigger to net major value. Scooze would certainly have fun with it.

    I don't think the juice is worth the squeeze on this one.

    In modern at 5cmc I would be just as happy casting Baneslayer Angel. Though the bestow is nice, I can be doing a lot of good things at 7 mana that don't require warping my deck around.

    If this card is going to be good, it's going to be in standard where there is nothing near that power level for 5 cmc and the 7cmc side is imo comparable to the best things to be doing in standard. But as it stands I don't think there is enough support, even though I would love to play with this card Grin

    It's a pretty cool card

    I'm bummed that my current meta is pretty damn competitive; I will never be able to run this card

    Think everyone in this thread completely forgets it has Bestow or even how Bestow works. Not saying this card has much potential but the whole "dies to removal" argument is very flawed with a bestow-enchantment.

    It's an instant speed 5/5 trampler for 4. Wtf do you people want seriously? It has applications in populate/ above the curve beats decks, or in Bant control/ flash. I seriously think anyone mad at this card for any reason other than losing an attacker to instant speed wurm, should go home and make their own awesome card game and leave the rest of us alone.

    For five mana you could cast Stormbreath Dragon which is far better than this thing.

    Will never see play and it's not even legendary to make it EDH-worthy. I mean some people might jam it into a child deck or some other 5c deck but this thing is basically just a waste of a card slot.

    Mirage I would happily race your stormbreath with this guy. Oh yeah and can you bestow stormbreath onto your 3/3 to make him an absolute monster? No I don't think you can. Chromanticore is obviously a more powerful creature, the mana cost is just restrictive which can be worked around.

    And sylphior don't worry, I had a dream to take first with a battle of wits deck in draft and I did it on the first try.

    All that's needed is a reprint of Channel the Suns or Composite Golem and this gets way better.

    Honestly, all you need is Farseek or Prismatic Omen to
    make this work.

    Use your head. If I'm running red do you think you'll have the chance to bestow or let alone ramp up to it? Not to mention with white I can splash glare to exile it and blue just needs a Gainsay to stop it (the bane of running all the colors). If you just normal cast it then mortars are all you need to stop it. Your threat is down then Stormbreath for game.

    Also I'm sure Smelt is in standard, and one mana answer to your cute lantern hehe.

    Remember that if you are playing five color bant control you have supreme verdict, dissolve, voyage's end, etc. Smile

    if only it could have been a 4/5 or had haste or cheaper bestow...hexproof would have made it OP so I get it...but changing abilities because of text not fitting in the box is horrible design when they could have just omitted the bestow text. Hell they could have just made it a 5colorless artifact with rainbow bestow cost and it would see more play. So many abilities and amazing art to waste on a bad card. I want to love it SO SO much and I can't.

    Difference between cute $4 EDH card and Standard playable $15+ card that spawns a newly viable deck.

    How many 5 drops are there in standard that don't dodge a lot of removal(or have haste, hello stormbreath)? The jolly green giant is the only one I can think of. ok I guess it dodges abrupt decay, doom blade, and selesnya charm...but heroes downfall, Mortars, and abrupt decay will be errewhere because of BROmance.

    The fact that this isn't legendary and isn't indestructible makes wish for a 5 color god a little more realistic, at least. It seems like a 5 color enchantment god would just be too epic an opportunity to pass up.

    As for this card, I'd say it is pretty cool and its always nice to see 5 color get some love. The creature is a bit fragile when not Bestowed, though.

    Also props to the artist. This card looks amazing.

    Yawgmoth's Will is like a big set of knockers.

    It isn't going to make a fat cow become suddenly attractive.

    But if the girl is already hot, then a big set of knockers makes her even better.

    Maybe the problem is your 6-10 mana spells make a giant, fat, ugly cow.
