Now here's a Mythic rare.
A big beefy creature with really brutal artwork and a powerful, but not broken ability.

Okay, it's now official. "Platinum" has become synonymous with "KILLITKILLITKILLIT!"

Excellent card, though, and it'll make a number of cards that once were harmful to their user much more playable.

Got this on turn 4 with Grand Architect. Kept me alive far longer than my terribad deck had any right to allow me to be. =D

@scumbling1: You're right about it not preventing damage, but I think you need to take another look at Oath of Lim-Dûl. The enchantment's Oracle text only says:

Whenever you lose life, for each 1 life you lost, sacrifice a permanent other than Oath of Lim-Dûl unless you discard a card. (Damage dealt to you causes you to lose life.)

BlackBlack: Draw a card.

With a Platinum Emperion on the field, the reminder text in Oath actually doesn't apply any more; damage dealt to you won't cause you to lose any life. DacenOctavio is correct.

EDIT: @scumbling1: It's certainly counterintuitive according to the cards-as-printed, which is what I assume you must mean. That's a mild sore point I have about some oracle updates; I certainly do appreciate that WotC provides us with more modern templating of certain cards, but Oath of Lim-Dûl made sense as printed; what they've "oracled" it to seems like a functional upgrade. I don't understand w... (see all)

Grab the reins or Threaten & Fling this guy and watch your opponent cry!

Give it hexproof and you pretty much win (except for infect!)

"Hey Mirran comrades!
I have a really powerful ability! Your life totals are now totally safe!"
"But the Phyrexians have infect."

It neither ignores death nor entropy, it dies to destroy and it can get -1/-1 counters, very unprecise flavour text.
Other than that, I like it. A mythic that feels epic, but is not for tournament play, as it should be. I'm so tired of overpowered undercosted mythics at 60 dollars. This creature is the way it should be.

This. lady's and gentlemen, is the honest to goodness flagship Mythic of the set. This is what should be by the definition of a Mythic Rare. It represents the set, leaves an impression, but isn't necessary for tournament play and it isn't an automatic inclusion in decks.

It also tag teams nicely with Platinum Angel. She's one of the few forces that can stop poison counters from killing you, but lets you drop to negative life. This big o'le loveable guy braces you against the most savage facebeatings so you can still live if someone nixes him, but he's hopeless against Infect in general. The Platinums make a cute couple. :P

Anybody else think teaming this gent up with Indomitable Archangel is an insidious idea?

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
