Gotta love River Boa. And giving it a swamp based Cousin? Cool. And they even made it common!

It wouldn't be fair to expect a card to handle everything, and for the cost and the staying power the Mire Boa always pulls its weight !!

I'm surprised this is rated lower than River Boa, seeing as their abilities are somewhat synonymous and Mire Boa is a common while River Boa is an uncommon. Weird.

As far as the card itself, "{G}: Regenerate" and evasion on a 2 mana creature make it pretty damn good. The 2 power just makes it that much better.

Despite the rampant use of Urborg, tomb of yawgmoth, no one really wanted to use this powerful card as well.

A nice complement to River Boa. Actually, for the casting cost, Mire Boa is really good. With evasion and regeneration, it can serve a dual purpose in your deck as an attacker or blocker.

NO ONE RATE THIS, it's the exact same rating as River Boa , and should stay that way.

River Boa is one of my favorite cards and was in a ton of my decks back in the day, so I was excited when I saw this guy...but I doubt that either of them can hold up anymore with all the wither and other -X stuff that's so prevalent nowadays.

A solid snake with two relevant abilities, made less effective than cousin River Boa by the current environment: there is now a ton of removal like Agony Warp or Last Gasp which bypasses regeneration.

fairly basic snake creature.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
