Quote from MonopomanThis is obviously a powerful guy..
He passes the Abrupt Decay test!
Be prepared for the new test that every card must face.
Quote from Serpos of UrugSo does Skyline Predator. OBVIOUSLY POWERFUL
Quote from LullyThey have to SACRIFICE a creature to tap him down. This is not optimal for most decks. You guys are treating it like it can't block at all.
Quote from varoanthe best comparison for this guy in limited would be a juggernaut creature.
This card will be the worst rare in RTR and less remembered than skaab ruibator in three months. It struggles to be on the same power level as mass of ghouls, even in limited.
That its not simply "not good enough for competitive", or underpowered. But that this is offensively bad, the real stinker tier.
Still, my best evaluation is that its approximately on the same power level as a 4/4 for 4 vanilla beater.
Quote from KingGatoGravecrawler has been mentioned a lot on this thread. Can we agree that yes, that specific card in that specific deck is an extremely effective counter? There have to be other arguments worth making.
Quote from parkwaySo, in 5 years, we're going to be playing 2 cmc 10/10 creatures.
Quote from InfinityAlarmMadness and genius are separated only by degrees of success.
Quote from benbuzz790It's good if you can clear their board. It's basically a two-card combo with Mutilate or bonfire of the damned. I can see him being strong only in a deck with a lot of sweepers.
Quote from KingGatoAre there any otherwise overlooked morbid cards that might merit a second glance from this card? You were always able to sacrifice your own creatures to force the effect, but it seems like making your opponent do it instead would be better.
Probably too cute of an idea to be of any real worth though.
