@Weretarrasque: Why are you comparing this to Sea Serpent?

Sea Serpent costs 4Blue this 2WhiteWhite; Sea Serpent cannot attack if oppenent doesn't have an island, this has no such restriction; Sea Serpent is from Alpha, this is from The Dark; Sea Serpent is common, this is uncommon and this is white wheras Sea Serpent is blue. So nothing in common.

It's a variable-strength Sea Serpent, basically. I suppose you could sideboard it if you expect to face mono-black...

Combos with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth elegantly: both profitably, And efficiently :) A very easy start to a not-so-bad, not-very-aggressive Black White deck! ^_^

tavaritz: 4C translates to 2CC for color-weighted mana costs, so it sits in the same spot on the curve as Sea Serpent... :P Both cards' power and toughness are effected by Basic Land types...the similarities are sort of there? Does Sea Serpent count your Islands or only your opponents?

This is, I THINK, BETTER than a Sea Serpent because it has at least 2 P/T without needing the key Land Type in play, whereas Sea Serpent can be turned into a 0/0 if the lands leave play. By 'variable strength' I think Weretarrasque meant "the P/T changes depending on whose turn it is, leaving you with a Black-hating Sea Serpent on their turn, and at least an over-cost 2/2 on you turn."


EDIT: Went back and looked at Serpent. Wereterrasque, me, and I'm sure a lot of MAGIC players make a weird assumpt... (see all)
