    aww, i was hoping for something awesome for my equipment deck . . .

  • Flarb

    omg great cheap card for edh

    • HauserD

      whenever a player loses the game, put thirteen +1 +1 counters? how is this useful in standard?

      • Ragamander

        @ “how is this useful in standard?”

        Not very, except that it’s still a 13/13 with flying, trample, and intimidate. In other words, it’s practically unblockable.

        • Darthozaga

          There are multiplayer formats and casual

          • Ragamander

            In casual you can cheat it in with Stoneforge Mystic or, heaven forbid, an unblocked Stonehewer Giant. Your opponent will never see THAT coming.

    Another Legendary Demon,

  • Scion of Oona

    Best card in the block so far (i say smite the monstrous to deal with this crap)

    • Caveman12312

      flig it

  • Empyrean

    If it didn’t cost 7, it would be great. However, it costs 7 and therefore sucks ass.

    • Mjarvis

      if it cost any less it would be over powered, besides the equip is 1 its not like argentum with the ridiculous equip cost. there are ways of getting it out quickly. besides i dont think they had standard in mind when wizards had this idea

  • Empyrean

    Oh no!
    There goes Tokyo!

    Go, go, Godzilla!

    …Seriously though, the demon looks like he’s trying to rip off Godzilla like Rakdos before him.

    The idea is awesome like most features in the block. But I don’t like the keyword intimidate ability on this one, its awkward . Why you may ask: Because it’
    s damn flip card even with generic mana costs. Trying to be a wisenheimer this one should be ONLY blockable by colorless creatures, because the design of a black frame doesn’t mean anything. A little addition: This creature is black would have dealt nicely with that.

    Please correct me if I’m wrong.

    • Iolin_vanberg

      The frame actually DOES matter. The flip card is whatever colour the frame is. For example, Garruk is green when you play him and Black when you flip him.

      • Caveman12312

        the Dot on the cards flip side ( the one next to the type box) dictates its color.
