"The effects of Xathrid Gorgon's ability don't depend on the petrification counter. If that counter is removed, the creature remains a colorless artifact with defender, and so on."

I wonder how many counters have been taken off with Hex Parasite only to have the creature remain a defender. I guess the designers thought the counter was a useful reminder?

This card is awesome. Use it as the only ground troop in a deck full of fliers, and leave them with a bunch of fatty defenders that can't even block your creatures.

Inversely analogous to Dark Imposter

This isn't the best card in the world, but against a slower, beefier creature deck, you can basically them down entirely with just with this card. It's very anti-green honestly. I wouldn't recommend for competitive play though, but in Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013, this card can win you the game against a lot of the decks in that format just on its own.

Since when is imobilizing a creature and making it an arifact black? The ability should cost 2Blue.

What exactly is the petrification counter there for? It doesn't do anything other than remind you that the creature is "petrified." Still, 4/5 for flavor.

The guy to the left's like, "FLAVO-"

Combos well with Vandalblast for a boardwipe, although too slow for multiplayer. A fun card for casual and limited, but nothing else. 4/5.

I've killed Eldrazi with this. This thing is ridiculous.
It's only 3/6, but who the hell cares? It's deathtouch! Could've been a 1/6.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
