Let's not forget that R/B/U is the BEST color combo for stealing your opponent's creatures. Who says his hit's play effect is a drawback? Sac their stuff to it, and cry about how your mean old card made you pay a whopping 2 life.

If I'm going to use Torpor Orb, Stifle, etc. to negate creature drawbacks, then I'm going to use Phyrexian Dreadnought. I don't think his regeneration ability makes up for: being susceptible to chump blocking, costing 4 times the CMC, having 3 colors in his casting cost, having 2 less power, being legendary, etc. I believe he's rated slightly too high at the moment. I think a rating of 4 would be more realistic.

@atali; The flavor on this guy is that he was built from the flesh and bone of a dozen Kjeldoran heroes and sits in Tresserhorn telling stories about how he mangled and ate Lim-Dul's enemies back in the day, waiting for his master's return. He also likes to sing old Kjeldoran battle hymns when he's feeling melancholy. Oh, and Tresserhorn is a fortress built over a bottomless pit on the ruins of the Monastery of Gix.

Notice how nearly all the removal everyone's bringing up that can deal with this guy was printed years later. It's not his fault that Wizards needed power creep to attract new players and help their bottom line. In his own day, he was immune to every black removal, and if you cast Swords to Plowshares - well, ok, I guess I'll just have to gain 10 life. The only other cards I can think of off the top of my head that could kill him were Reprisal, Exile, Fissure, and Wrath of God, only one of which was ever played by anyone. The biggest threat was actually from blue, since Unsummoning him was just as bad.

@megapossum, i agree. it's also my favorite color combo. i have a deck that i use with this dude, sol'kanar the swamp king, gwendlyn di corci, and a bunch of creatures and staples like hypnotic specter and stuff. it definitely stomps. this guy is particularly awesome when i stick him with invisibility. that's obviously not going to win me any tournaments, but it's fun.

It's like a mini Cruel Ultimatum to yourself! Except, then you win the game.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but, Isn't Lim-Dul the lord of Tresserhorn? This guy does not look like Lim-Dul, more like of of his servants.

I heard this dude screams curse words at the mother of his children. And he will totally wreck your room and not even clean it up.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
