Choose not to discard a creature card, sacrifice it, then play a Necrotic Ooze. Proceed to win game.

I passed this card up 3 weeks ago at a draft.
I have yet to stop slapping myself.

has someone been pouring mercury into the water supply? why is this rated below 4 stars? oh yea, it has a single drawback. and despite this actually being slightly beneficial, people have become too accustomed to their BSA type cards.

seriously, between this and a wurmcoil engine, this wins with just 6 mana available, and cleans up the tokens.

I just pulled this yesterday from my first pack ever of Scars. I'm so happy with it :)

If your opponent tries to destroy the masticore with doom blade, then you can simply regenerate it for 2 mana.....assuming that I understand the rules of regenerate properly. I seldom use it, so I can't exactly be an authority on it :)

Friends with Ember Hauler. Sac Hauler for 2 damage in the mid game, exile it from graveyard for another 4. But definitely Training Grounds is what makes this bad boy playable.

@ mlanier131:
You can't exile tokens from the graveyard yourself because SBAs don't use the stack. The tokens just stop existing immediately after they get to the new zone. At the time the tokens are being exiled, you wouldn't even get priority to activate this card's ability, or any ability, or even to cast a spell. And here's why:

704.3. Whenever a player would get priority (see rule 116, “Timing and Priority”), the game checks for
any of the listed conditions for state-based actions, then performs all applicable state-based actions
simultaneously as a single event. If any state-based actions are performed as a result of a check, the
check is repeated; otherwise all triggered abilities that are waiting to be put on the stack are put on
the stack, then the check is rep... (see all)

Ah... Molten Tail Masticore, I appreciate your insane power level. This insanely amazing and overpowered creature turned one of my worst decks into one of the most powerful decks I've built in a long time. The whole deck focuses on searching up the Masticore, getting it out as fast as possible and then the rest of the deck is merely the Masticore's feeding dish. Om Nom on my cards while I destroy my opponents side of the field. I don't play a deck, I play a Molten Tail Masticore.

Best Masticore IMO. Why? Because 1. It can hit creatures and players, and 2. the synergy with the usual "discard upkeep" for masticores and its other ability that burns things.
So what's a masticore? Part scorpion, part lion, part human?

I'm*** SCARED of Masticores!
