    This is gonna be a cool bomb.

    So, if I read this right, if you cast it for 7, it’s a 10/10?

          Still very vanilla. Somehow I expect Modern Masters series to include cards that are able to deal with vanilla creatures.

            It has a ping ability, you know.

    • Jazzyboy1

      Yep, but that’s actually not particularly impressive.

      I’d rather play Dragonlord Atarka, an 8/8 trampling flyer that deals damage as it enters for 7 mana. Sure, it’s 2 less power but the flying and trample already make it a better play.

        Oh, I have no doubt it’s not that impressive, I just thought it was pretty cool, that’s all.

        • Jazzyboy1

          Could be cool with Doubling Season or with Kalonian Hydra, I guess. Then it’s a 20/20 for 7(or soon after you cast it). You’d have to build the rest of the deck around Doubling Season though, of course. Can’t rely on drawing it and this and casting both :P

        This is less for beating and more for pinging a bunch of little dudes. Especially in limited, where I imagine there will be some *very* nasty little dudes.

  • Melissa Juice

    This art is fantastic. I love the weird mammal-worm look of the hydra.

  • Doubter

    This should have been Thrun The Last Troll instead I think :/

    • Melissa Juice

      Both! (I hope.)
