This Primordial is easily the best one of the 5. Unlike the others which have potential card advantage, This one is almost always going to get you card advantage. You are in a 4 player game, you cast this or reanimate it. Lets say they have nothing of real value on the board. Who cares, destroy 3 lands and fetch 3 forests. And they can be nonbasic as well. There are only 2 instances where this thing doesn't give you a major card advantage swing. Either all your opponents stuff is hexproof/shroud/indestructible (Which its possible for one of them to have this but very unlikely for all of them to.) or they have no permanents on the field.

Another Shadow of the Colossus card.

Going straight into my ramp deck! ^_^

I wouldn't say it's strictly better than Terastodon or Woodfall Primus, but it's not too shabby. You get to destroy permanents and not only do you get a giant body with reach, you get lands, too.

probably the best of the cycle, since it is basically a cheaper woodfall primus, which is already edh gold

Behold the lovechild of Terastodon and Primeval Titan, which are both nuts in EDH.

Now that's a Commander / EDH card. :) Lots of card advantage, pretty versatile, filters your library a bit, good stuff. Especially if you can keep triggering it's enter the battlefield ability, by flickering it or reanimating it a few times or copying it or whatever.

It's a shame it got not rample or any sort of evasion, but still nice.

EDh gold. This will end up destroying 3+ permanents more often than not, accelerate your mana, thin your deck, block a 6/6 flyer and live to block again or swing for 6. That's not even some far-fetched scenario. That's what this card does.
That's what I call value.

The late ramp may not always be directly beneficial, but it at least thins your deck of otherwise dead cards and provides a nice body. 3.68/5.

This art makes me so happy. :*)

How did this guy banned in EDH while Omniscience, Palinchron, Deadeye Navigator and the devil itself, Sol Ring are all still legal? ALL OF THOSE CARDS DEGENERATE FASTER AND MORE CONSISTENTLY THAN SYLVAN DOES!!!!


I guess now I just have to kick Rite of Replication, which is also busted, on to Inferno Titan now, and take someone out of the game immediately instead of rectifying the nonsense that the degenerating players try to pull.

It's not like Tempt with Discovery doesn't essentially do the more important half of Sylvan's ability anyway, and better than Sylvan does...

Here's a list of ten (or more) cards that need to be banned in EDH more than Sylvan does, in no particular order:

1: Omniscience - Busts any mono-blue deck...actually it pretty much busts any deck, period.
2:... (see all)

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
