Aaron’s Random Card Comment of the Day #77, 6/6/11

Tribal lords were such an amazing thing to have gotten right at the game’s inception, and I tip my proverbial hat to Richard Garfield for nailing the idea of the flavorful build-around as well as he did.

Zombie Master debuted alongside his more powerful brethren Lord of Atlantis and Goblin King in Alpha and lasted in the Core Sets for a decade—through Sixth Edition—before Seventh Edition became the first Core Set without a Zombie lord.

As charming as Zombie Master was—as a younger man, I certainly included him in decks to enhance my Scathe Zombies—he lagged pretty far behind his Goblin and Merfolk counterparts in the power department.
