I had an interesting experience against a Gomazoa in planechase... we were on Lethe Lake, and both my opponent and I were down to barely any cards in our graveyard. All my removal was in the graveyard at that point, but my opponent was going to be the first to empty his. That is, until, at the end of my turns he would use Goma's ability to put it back in the library, then redraw it, ensuring he didn't lose from being unable to draw. Of course, not having any removal left and not being close enough to kill range, I was doomed to exhaust my cards first.

Echo Circlet may be the only consistant way to get it to block multiple creatures for its ability, but I've found some success with cloning it via Cryptoplasm as well. What's worse than 4 Gomazoas? 4 more cloned up that can all block 2 at once! Especially since the equiptment stays on the field and is cheap to equipt. Very nice in my mil deck, since when their creature gets shuffled, it's 50-50 that they'll lose it to mil rather than redraw it anyway. And damn is it ever a nice lure for Lightning Bolt... good thing we blues have Redirect, Deprive, Negate, Turn Aside, Dispel... or even Unsummon, really. The lack of haste serves as a great mindgame if you have the mana and cards to defend it, in any case.

Don't underestimate the ability to shuffle your library at any time as well. For instance if you Ponder or use Halimar Depths and don't find what you're looking for. Anything that deals with Eldrazi and Baneslayer is a friend of mine.

Love it. Have a ability that goes through shroud. Can activate before combat damage is dealt to stop tramplers/lifelinkers. Gets through indestructibility/regneration. (this thing can kill Marit Lage (see dark depths))

As mentioned, the summoning sickness is quite a big letdown though.

Just got back from FNM with blue/white control, and this card was spectacular for me. This is an extremely underrated card.

Emrakul attacks.
Gomozoa blocks.
Gomozoa and Emrakul are shuffled into their owners' libraries.
4/5

I would like it more if it weren't affected by summoning sickness...

Vaguely reminds me of giant oyster. It doesn't remind me of spiny starfish, but I'll link that anyway. Okay, I'm done...

Two tricks Gomazoa has up it's sleeve that you can have fun with: Valor Made Real makes that obnoxious elf army vanish. And if they try to kill it, you can use the ability outside of combat to dodge the vast majority of removal effects. Plus, come on, people, we need Jellyfish in tribal!

I think people miss the point of this card... it isn't designed to be a massive stopper like Wall of Denial. It basically gives you a flying defender who can instantly bounce any attacking creature that it can block... It is pretty awesome.

Sure, you can drop something bigger like Wall of Denial, but Gomazoa will punt a giant creature like an Eldrazi from the board... Effects like Umbras, indestructable, combat boosts, etc are all worthless against this.

It can also save itself from removal by "hiding" in your deck, so if an opponent tries to hit it with a lightning bolt, it will dissapear.

Incredibly useful creature!

4.5/5
