After playing against it in the Pre-Release... yeah, stupid good in limited.

Why has NO ONE mentioned his art? Intimidating, wicked, Infected. It's cards like this that make me feel Phyrexia.

Probably better that Giant Spider, since this will be playing defense. Still, I liked Giant Spider just fine.

One of my favorite Creature types of all time. Finally got a really strong offence to go with that defence. Thank you WotC. Great for those playing Spiders and HUGE for limited.

Considering you're mostly gonna be blocking with it anyway this is usually preferable over Giant Spider.

The only thing I don't like about this card is that now people are really starting to seriously dis my buddy giant spider. Just stop the hate and agree both are good. please.

This card needs full art. It really does.

Infect is how it is because it's a parasitic mechanic. There are some 12,000 cards in all of Magic. Of those, only 80 of them have infect or proliferate, and they're spread over all five colours. Infect is something you must build your entire deck around to be good, which is impossible when you don't have enough cards to build a deck with.

Blightwidow is not fair compared to Giant Spider. Wizards knows this. If they were making this thing's power relative to the Spider, it would have cost more. But they weren't. Giant Spider is a junk card that's useless outside of Limited, and merely good in Limited, so making something stronger than it isn't going to destroy the balance of the game. Indeed, Blightwidow has literally never been played in a Standard deck that placed in the top 8, 16, or even 32 of a Grand Prix or Pro Tour. Blightwidow is quite powerful in limited, but is still a useless junk card in Constructed.

Wow, talk about an upgrade.
Plus, it's a phyrexianized card that actually looks cool. Rather than all of the ugly monstrosities of that god forsaken hellhole of a plane.

Poor, poor Giant Spider.

I never thought you were all that bad to begin with.

edit, back from the prerelease: Jesus God, this card is stupid good.
I really don't think this should have been at common.
