I suppose he gives you something to do with all those spare lands, as at 8cmc you won't be needing many.

He'd be alright in a good ramp deck though. Probably wouldn't live long but any card that draws that much fear you can't argue with.

I would absolutely love to see a ramp deck with this guy at its core take off in Standard. Sadly, that doesn't seem likely.

Turns Caravan Vigil into either an undercosted Rampant Growth or a Lightning Bolt tutor.

Gruul seems to have gotten the raw deal in this set. Some of them are good, but I feel like they as a whole lack potential. The guild could be extremely awesome, but I think wizards desire to distinguish them from Boros ultimately weakened them.

@Monkeypantsa: you do know that EDH is played with 40life and more commonly multiplayer, right?

I prefer the original Borborygmos over this new version, but this one definitely has merit. I like having land ramp and extra burn capabilities should I need them, but I'm not a fan of my other cards going to the graveyard, even with cards like Wildwood Rebirth in the same set. Flipping his power and toughness was probably a good idea too.

If nothing else, at least he wasn't a remake of the original, like Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius or Obzedat, Ghost Council.

Borborygmos... I thought he wasn't great.

Forest, Plains, Mountain, Breeding Pool, Stomping Grounds, Temple Garden and Razorverge Thicket is the best starting hand I've ever had.

I wasn't so sure I liked the idea of throwing my lands away for damage but once I play-tested a proxy, I found out just how good he is. By the time you have 8 mana, what more could you need? will be especially good with a boros reckoner and harvest pyre... not that you really need it tho. super stoked i finally pulled one out of a booster!

would've liked it better as a 7/7, the 6 toughness makes him too susceptible in combat. Otherwise, a great gruul leader!

Ravnica rule #1: Never make Borborygmos mad.
Rule #2: If Borborygmos gets mad, then - Oh NO! WHO made Borborygmos angry?!?!
