    What we really need is legendary Oozeatog - Eat an ooze, create 2 copies of the ooze it ate. In Jund or Temur


    Or an ooze that can make a token clone of a creature that died except it is an ooze in addition to its other types...

    Or an ooze that gets bigger for every other ooze and creates copies of itself whenever it takes damage.

    Wizard's Lightning prevents this from seeing Constructed, but still a fantastic card. Arena Pauper players will surely love this.


    Not exactly... Rakdos based aggro wont really have enough wizards to meet that cost reduction... But htis can be a 1 mana, 3 damage with many of Rakdos's cards.. like that demon, the acrobat, and the new 2 drop that shocks for 2 if you sac a creature on your upkeep... that is potentially 5 damage turn 3 without even attacking...

    This seems potentially hilarious with High Alert in an Arcades deck...


    That is what I was thinking in the "Big butts Matter" deck comment xD. that would effectively be 9 power on the board for 5 mana.

    So you run it in decks where your deck was built to profit from a symmetrical boardwipe. Like, say, Afterlife. Or Undying.


    But very few of those decks would prefer to blow up their whole board over just keeping the creatures and swinging in with them... And if you are introducing undying, you are now looking at formats that have Wrath of God/Day of Judgment/Supreme Verdict/Terminus.... and this card doesnt come close to those cards in power...

    It looks underwhelming at first, but you're more or less getting a 6-loyalty planeswalker for three mana, which is pretty good. The decks that run this should have plenty of creatures on the board (having to run a creature-heavy deck is not a problem - Gruul WANTS lots of creatures), so Domri really doesn't have to protect himself (although his -3 does help a bit). The ultimate seems weird but it can get overwhelming pretty quickly. Overall, I like this Domri and I think he might see a fair amount of play if a Gruul (or maybe Temur) Stompy-type aggro deck materializes.


    I wonder if Temur or Jund will be bigger. With Temur you have mana sinks in Adapt creatures, but with Jund you have much more durable creatures (lots of recursive creatures) and access to some heavy hitting demons. Combining Domri with that new Rakdos enchantment can also let you have an pretty consistent and powerful filter/draw suite.


    That's a good question. Domri seems to work better in Jund rather than Temur, but I could see him being run in either one. I guess which deck ends up being better depends on whether the Simic +1/+1 counter mechanics are strong enough.


    The other thing that Temur has going for it is that Riot also syncs nicely with Simic's focus on +1/+1 counters. Like Zegana would be brutal with Riot.

    Afflict 1 on 3/2 body for 1RB? Color me unimpressed, Rakdos cult.


    On a COMMON... this is the important part.
