Megamorph 1 ManaGreen Mana

When Den Protector is turned face up, return target card from your graveyard to your hand.

  • Xero

    That’s a pretty cost-efficient card. I’d use it.

  • Sequoyah Sebastian Hoffman

    Still really unhappy about this whole Megamorph cycle. I still don’t want to pay 5 for a raise dead, a lame 2/2 and then an okay (but not 5 okay) 3/2. Even without the ability it is still just a pseudo evasion 2/1 whereas the blue one is at least Flying the whole time.

    • Melissa Juice

      It’s not Raise Dead, it’s Regrowth which is WAAAAAAAAY better.
      This is solid, and that effect is quite rare.

      • richardshort2001

        Exactly, this card is either a 2/1 psuedo evasion, or a 2/2 for 3 that lets you put a Regrowth in your hand from outside the game that you can’t be forced to discard unless the creature dies, and when you cast it the bear gets better. That doesnt suck. Not at all.

        EDIT: Oh and the Regrowth is at instant speed instead of Sorcery, so you can “cast” it as a response to the creature dying.

        • Blake

          Don’t forget that when you Morph this bad boy it becomes a 3/2 with psuedo evasion and regrowth.

      • BlahBlahBlahBla

        Yep. Waaaaaaay better is right. This is the first morph card i’ve been excited about. Very good stuff.

    • Zombie

      They’re not meant to be played all on one turn, and certainly not on curve.

      It appears the cheap, aggressive Megamorph cards are designed to be toolbox additives to aggressive decks that are otherwise lacking the kind of ability those cards provide.

      The two we’ve seen so far aren’t bad, and I could see both of them seeing at least SOME competitive Standard play.

      As for this card specifically, it’s a more expensive surprise Eternal Witness that has built in evasion. That’s not too shabby.

      • Sequoyah Sebastian Hoffman

        Generally I can see your point but, when the surprise starts off by being an ability lacking 2/2 for 3 I am immediately much less excited about where it is going.

    • Sequoyah Sebastian Hoffman

      At the risk of sounding like a troll. I still don’t think it is good enough. Yes, good point about Regrowth, but, each mode kinda sucks overall. 5 for a semi-evasive 3/2, even over two turns, is a poor creature. The regrowth makes it more palatable but I still don’t like it. Also, the dischordance of fighting their own CMC just so that you can get value later is a woefully unfun and slow mechanic in my opinion.

      Personally, except the blue one so far, I don’t expect these to see anything approaching Standard play besides maybe a 1 of out of the sideboard.

  • Melissa Juice

    Wow. Nice multipurpose card.

  • Zombie

    I can easily imagine this seeing play in Abzan Aggro lists.

    It’s cheap, efficient, and is fairly powerful.

    I like these cheap Megamorph cards. There’s definitely some Standard playability here. Can’t wait for the others.

    • Alex Egertsen

      Mega-Morphin Power rangers!! Lol

      • Alex Egertsen

        I had to say it

  • Kameenook

    This one is good. I like it a little more than Eternal Witness.

  • Bloodrus

    Wandering Wolf is back~ Too bad Gruul left otherwise we’d have an unblockable on our hands.

  • This is actually pretty good, should definitely see some Standard and EDH play.

  • BlahBlahBlahBla

    Ok, here we go. That’s what i’m talking about. This does some work!

    I like the way this differs from Eternal Witness in that you can Regrowth at instant speed. Very powerful.

  • screamerchris

    So basically the assassin with a different color and extra effect.

  • Keoma Kaiser

    Hmmm i just start to think that the new megamorh cards work rly well together wit the manifest mechanic. Maybe there will be a standand Deck playing cloudform and co

  • Fbn Dnl Schlr

    Stupid morph… why no ETB option? -.-

    • Melissa Juice

      Because it’s effect would be WAYYYYY too good at two. If you want eternal witness, you’re going to be paying significantly more mana.

  • Ryx

    Yes, early game unblockable and mid-game graveyard retrieval, love it.

  • Derpachus

    It’s a standard, but better eternal witness!
    *cheers in joy*

    • Happy The Cat

      better at offence not as a utility card like E witness

  • Gafratt

    And this is the least-broken card spoiled so far…

  • Happy The Cat

    hunter’s prowess finally has a card to make it good
    five mana draw six with pseudo buy back for two
