Armored Cancrix is crying in a corner somewhere.

Reprints from Ravnica block are always A-OK with me!

This thing is a house in limited, where small cheap fliers reign. It can block them all day and force your opponent to mill in a format where running your deck out of cards occurs at a much higher rate. And if you have nothing to block you can get in 2 evasive damage.

I'm a fan of this, especially for limited. In M12 draft, this goes near the top of my draft board.

I like how M12 has a big creature at uncommon for each color. Serra Angel for white, this for blue, Sengir Vampire for black, Volcanic Dragon for red, and I'm not sure abot green. Cudgel Troll or Carnage Wurm, maybe?
Good card for mill. In mill high power shouldn't be a concern. This guy would mostly stay on the defense.

This card is ok in standard play, but is an absolute beast in booster draft tourneys, where mill is a more viable strategy if you draft wisely. I was lucky enough to get two of these in my last booster draft - my first opponent fireballed one and ended up milling Chandra, Incinerate, Doom Blade, a mountain and a swamp. Then I cast the second one and used Alluring Siren to force attacks. 40 card decks disappear quickly.

Cheza, please stop thinking about color, because it's clear you're doing it wrong.

I would use this guy as a defender for my mill deck, but he's just a little too expensive. At the point I would get him out, my engine would already be running with other defenders. Still worthy of consideration, though.

Best use for this card? Block a Little Girl and make your opponent tear his card in half.

Yes Ravnica!

@ Kyzer: They're bringing back mill because Innistrad is shaping up to be a graveyard based set. Hell, they're bringing back FLASHBACK.

As for the card.... AT LAST! Azure Drake, go *** yourself!!
