Because Infect wasn't mean/harsh/almost broken enough...

This card is dripping with Awesome sauce, use with Whispersilk Cloak

Its a poison lords that sits there and S HITS posion counters onto your opponent even if your creatures are countered. I play two of these in my infect deck and give my opponent 9; i repeat 9 posion counters when i play putrefax

Fits so well in my infect deck, it ain't even funny. People already hated my infect deck before I added this boy here, this just makes them cringe. And yeah, it's a creature-based deck, not evasion.

I like how WotC says they're making vampires the black tribe, then they print more zombies than vampires in this set.

Either way, love this card.

eat it emo vamp lovers! Zombies are the black tribe!

He even fits into a deck that only uses Grafted Exoskeleton and Tainted Strike.

Let's say you have 4 of these on the field. Attaching Grafted Exoskeleton to a creature would be giving it +6/+6 and Infect, and throwing Tainted Strike on would mean +5/+4 and Infect.

Now they gave you Glistening Elf for your one drop.

Imagine playing this guy on turn 4 and then dropping 4 Glistening Elves on turn 5.

On of my favorite games, I almost killed someone with infect after enchanting this guy and throwing batterskull on him.

The enchantment was Mind Control. Almost killed an infect deck with infect.

I'm having an incredibly hard time choosing between this BAMF and Phyrexian Vatmother. They're both great, it's almost a toss-up.

Okay, now this nasty little bugger is cheap ... the infect ability so cruel, which ironically is why I love it so much.

@Thanatophagous: Are you suggesting we should use worse cards in our deck so that they aren't hit by removal?
Posted By: awesomeperson007 (5/12/2013 5:12:34 PM)


Awkward if your opponent has shroud or hexproof!
Posted By: LordRandomness (4/21/2013 5:56:51 PM)


Infect already had no real weaknesses... then they gave it this. Really? REALLY?

And the argument dies to removal can be applied to all creatures. Even Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Emrakul, The Aeons Torn die to the right sort of removal (mass removal like Day of Judgment for Emrakul, exile or Tragic Slip for Avacyn in case people were wondering).

Hello i want to ask , if i have a
Hand of the Praetors on the field and then cast unerath and rutern to the battlefield let's say Plague Stinger , that doest trigger the poison ability , does it ? I think no , but for just few weeks in the game ...
Posted By: Skidas (10/7/2012 6:35:44 PM)


Perhaps the best thing about him is his ability to give unavoidable poison counters.
+1/+1 is a great thing for evasion like Plague Stinger or Ichorclaw Myr for the "should I block it?" clause,
Not to mention Putrefax and a hasty Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon.
He's an Infect 3/2, which is pretty solid.
But, he shines with his ability to allow you to cast your infect creatures, and give poison even if it's countered, destroyed, exiled, what have you,
That is what makes this guy so damn powerful.

Anyone here reminded of Tzeench's Lords of Change looking at this guy?
Posted By: Arachnos (4/7/2012 3:15:38 PM)


@ Thana: What are you thinking? You don't just toss this bird on the front lines and hide behind him FTW (although you pretty much can sometimes!), you're doing it wrooong! What lord would have your back when you don't have it's? And you're lookin for that kind of love in BLACK of all colors?!? Hahaha imagine that.. You have to protect him ;)

Hahaha @ "It has swamp walk. You have a swamp." Classic!
Posted By: Mike-C (3/31/2012 5:21:09 AM)


He is the face of your nightmares.You thought you had different nightmares? Think again. Hand of the Praetors gets so much hate from non-poison player that if all the hate were concentrated, it would cause every copy of HotP to ignite, leaving us infect deck players lordless. As it is, bow down to your overlord, who turns glistener elves into ammunition while laughing at all lifegain decks everywhere. Awesome is not enough for the Hand.

I don't know what is all the fuss about this guy, I play 4 of him in my BlackGreen infect and the only thing he can do is sit there on the battlefield for 2 seconds like a wet retard on a stormy night flailing a lightening rod around and screaming "Hit me, hit me, please hit me!" until finally my opponent strikes with his removal spell. I really think 4 mana for a removal magnet is a little steep. Yes his abilities are supermegaawesome, but what is that worth if he only sees the day of light for a nanosecond before he gets effed.
What is a zombie skull/bird good for if you have to sadly say goodbye before you had the chance to greet him.
