This with Basilisk Collar. Enough said.

Weak because you have to pay. Phyrexian Plaguelord owns this thing.

I am new to Magic and i was wondering why you can't use the same Eldrazi Spawn for both mana and sac. I tried to look up the answer to this question in the comp rules for mtg however i am not a lawyer hehe. I understand that you have to sac the spawn for one colorless, the question is why the sac cannot count for both.

time for awesome combo.

This and Dominus of Fealty

kill your opponents stuff, planeswalkers this means you.

as i did it in a R/U deck, rite of replication on the Dominus, then start sacing their stuff to kill them.

Not good? How about this.

You've got them down to 5, but you can't seem to get past their largest creature. Sac everything you've got and you win! It's not like they are going to have 4 trickbinds and a stifle in hand.

Not great but it has niche applications. I run an Act of Treason/Mark of Mutiny + Fling deck that uses this guy to blow up stolen stuff if I don't have Fling handy.

Now that Eldrazi has been around for a while, it's interesting to read what people said back when it was brand spankin new. This card really is poo, and I have an elevated level of hate towards it because I think between my brother and I, we've pulled like 9 of 'em. I don't even bother with Eldrazi anymore. Don't get me wrong, there are some stellar cards in the set, but overall I always feel like i'm disappointed if I don't pull a Wall of Omens (not counting the rare). The uncommons and commons in this set are really sub-par.

I sure hope that the hate this thing is getting is because it was printed at rare, and people are disappointed to open it instead of... I don't know... Gideon Jura?

I have a hard time believing that allowing people to sacrifice lands wouldn't push this card too far in the other direction. Cards like Squandered Resources and Zuran Orb were extremely popular in their day; if you let Magmaw eat lands, he turns every land you draw into the equivalent of a flashed-back Lava Dart, which seems rather good. (it's not a perfect a-n-a-logy, I know)

Anyway, to the card as printed: I think that while he may not be jaw-droppingly powerful, the utility he provides could be handy in a drawn-out game. Admittedly, I am biased, as I was able to put a Snake Umbra on him at the prerelease for profit.

Sun Titan, this and Sprouting Thrinax. Only problem is in a R/W deck is getting Thrinax to the graveyard.
I'd use lots of other token generators. Kinda weak especially for extended but, fairly powerful once it gets going.

Does this card remind anyone of Arc Slogger?
