Gaze of Gorgons XBBG
Destroy all nonland permanents with converted mana cost X or less.
How is this not getting more love? In a format where people are whining about aggro and/or are having to deal with Lingering Souls tokens, it seems like an obvious choice to find a home for this in GBx something. I mean, at least in a sideboard, amiright?
If 6 CC sweepers like Terminus, Merciless Eviction etc are not good enough, why would this be good enough? Because of green? As if GBx like Junk Reanimator really needs this. Just sayin'.
I love the card, but the only colors that really want to support this are decks that are not going to cut the butter with this, or they have a color set up where it just really is not needed all that much.
Isnt this just a green/black Planar Cleansing? I know its supposed to be like Pernicious Deed, but meh. The casting cost is prohibitive. I guess in a Junk colored control deck with thragtusks, prime speaker etc, but how would that be better than wolf run bant? After rotation.
Yeah, it might be best positioned for post-rotation. Specifically, I would predict that value junk midrange creatures plus this (instead of rites) could work well depending on whether another sweeper gets added to Supreme Verdict. I guess we'll see.
Until then, it's certainly something somebody would have to brew with to make good. You probably can't just plop it into something we have right now.
