In a void, this guy's probably a better game-ender for artifact decks than Master of Etherium since he's got evasion. Still, I'd say this is the worse card (not to say it's bad by any means). For comparison:

Harder to chump block (either should kill anything in its path a few turns in, flying or no)
Possible to cast for UU
Having a high CMC is useful in a few cases

Master of Etherium:
3 CMC, can be played for U with two Etherium Sculptor (why wouldn't you run those in an artifact deck?) - basically it's always going to be cheaper
Very easy turn 2 3/3 or 4/4, racking up early damage
For the above reasons, much more useful against aggro decks, since you can start picking off their weenies quickly and easily
Can be tutored out on turn 5 with ... (see all)

Played with the correct cards and Broodstar can become a nightmare for the opponent. The artifact lands from Mirrodin, the borderposts from Alara Reborn, and the mana accelerant myrs from Mirrodin, all have enough synergy potential to allow Broodstar access into play as early as turn four, with a power/toughness total of at least five.

love this guy. in my opinion he is better than master of etherium, but thats because in my casual I normally drop him turn 2 or three as a 4/4 or 5/5 minimum.

love the artwork here to, the only improvement he could use is being an artifact himself. either way a definite 5/5 in my book.

Like like this guy. Not only does he get stronger as you play more Artifacts. But he also will cost less!

Flying is nice too.

Oh, come ON!!! It's a freaking giant fly that's like IMMA FIRIN MAI LAZORZ!!! And his name is BROODSTAR!!!!!!!!!!! 5/5

Also, played against one in an affinity deck, it is INCREDBLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!

if it were an artifact, it could get better than master of etherium, when it costs only 2 mana

but its not

Pretty much worse than Master Of Etherium. Master of Etherium looks better, too.

The card isn't even remotely good unless you have six or more artifacts in play. Which you seldom will.

He isn't an artifact or a lord, but he's got flying and wouldn't be too expensive in the right deck. I say he is equally on par with Master of Etherium as he has some evasion.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
