Brom, oh how we love you. From your art of Athas (Old school Dark Sun), to your wicked elementals.

Melira would just prevent you from paying the cumulative upkeep, forcing you to sacrifice it.

I like how the aboroth attack played out in the story line. It was attacking Llanowar right around the time Gerrard showed up to find Mirri. He managed to kill it using some random artifacts on the Weatherlight; a Thran Forge and a touchstone so it slowly died from its own upkeep.

I love that about the older sets, the cards matched the story. Nothing like that in new stuff now with there fancy planeswalkers that don't appear on any other card and "legends" that exist in flavor text alone.

He was pretty solid in drafts, but it's a shame he is without trample. Anyway, Eon Hub might make him somewhat playable.

And yes, it was brilliant how cards used to match the entirety of the story. Ah, the good ol' days....

@kiriyama9000: Sets before Exodus didn't color code the rarity.

Card of the Day - Tuesday, April 15, 2008
AborothWeatherlight rare. When Weatherlight was released, there was no formal system for tracking cumulative upkeep from turn to turn. Aboroth's -1/-1 counters thus made it one of the cleaner cumulative upkeep cards from a bookkeeping perspective. When the rules were updated for Sixth Edition, age counters were added as a means of cleanly tracking how many times a cumulative upkeep cost had been paid, somewhat ironically making Aboroth—with two types of counters almost guaranteed—one of the messier cumulative upkeep cards to keep track of.

Okay for Fling-ing, otherwise not worth it. There are plenty of better green beasts out there than this elemental.
