    Remember, +1/+1 counters and -1/-1 counters negate each other entirely. If I had a Peema with a +1/+1 counter on it, then put a -1/-1 counter on it, it now how no counters, so would not be unblockable.

    • james hansen

      Not true I believe they are both still present and counted seperately

      • TheAweDude

        121.3. If a permanent has both a +1/+1 counter and a -1/-1 counter on it, N +1/+1 and N -1/-1 counters are removed from it as a state-based action, where N is the smaller of the number of +1/+1 and -1/-1 counters on it. See rule 704.

    Sultai Constrictor, gg

  • Shagoth

    That would suck to open this as a rare. Feels like such an uncommon. Abzan Falconer is just generally better.

    • xSiNx SHADOW

      unblockable is generally better than flying…

      • Shagoth

        Three mana is generally better than four…
        Also Outlast.

  • Writerofthings

    Atraxa edh?

    • Shagoth

      Too many options IMO.

  • Scott Mc clean

    MARCHESA edh. Attack, get dethrone, now unblockable. YES!!!

  • Random Guy

    Wow.

  • ROHAN W

    I think that this would work with the aether automaton

  • Luca La Marca

    depends, a different merfolk deck with Metallic Mimic isn’t bad.

    Simic Ezuri likes this. Even has 2 power.

  • Jonathan Reynolds

    I like this for Ezuri, Claw of Progress, but I wish it was three CMC instead of four. Four seems a bit rough.

    Infect Ezuri players will probably love it though.

    • Vizzerdrix

      Honestly ezuri is busted all ready at least how I built it with morph and heavy tokens, this makes it even more busted

      • Jonathan Reynolds

        One thing I like about Ezuri is that there are many ways to build him. Do you have your list posed somewhere to see?

  • Vizzerdrix

    This will do wonders in myezuri deck so many cards I’ll be able to use for edh in this set

  • Happy The Cat

    Grimgrin, Noyan Dar, Marchesa, Animar, Mimeoplasm, Thraximundar, this’ll have a long edh life.

    • Seant Ryan

      Don’t forget Ezuri, Claw of Progress

    • Robert Seaman

  • Chris

    I think this could have been uncommon. Abzan Falconer is a comparable creature. Some cool tribe visuals in this set, but mtg seems to be running out of fresh ideas.

    • Edward

      Becoming unblockable and gaining flying are 2 totally different things. Creatures with reach and flying can both block flying creatures. Unblockable creatures can never be blocked except in the rare instance something is put directly in to play blocking the creature. Also Merfolk is a relevant creature type giving added synergy to the card. That is why this is 4 mana instead of 3 and why it is a rare instead of an uncommon.

  • Zack Garvin

    Metalurgic Mimic with this card makes me want Merfolk to be a thing in standard

  • Derek Niles

    My Vorel EDH deck just made a girly noise….the deck….it wasn’t me….stop saying that
