    Oof, a card that’s like a reverse of Odric is pretty neat. It has the potential to be an absolute terror. With just 1 other creature it’s a 4/4. I can see this in a midrange deck for standard, and most decks would probably play it in commander.

    • PAOLO VACALA

      yea same, feels like a odric card except for the fact you need a good amount of creatures to justify its cost of 5 mana.

      • Leotamer

        If you have two creatures, one with haste and the other with flying, then you are hitting for six damage in the air the turn this played. That is not a particularly hard condition to meet.

        If you also have a creature with double strike and one other creature, then you will be doing 20 damage in the air. Much harder to do, but it shouldn’t be easy to do 20 damage in the air. Have you heard of this card called Dark Depths?

        • Aurore

          You mean the card that lets you easily cheat out a 20/20 for minimum effort and mana with good old Thespian Stage and Vampire Hexmage?

          • Leotamer

            And do you think they will ever reprint Dark Depths and Thespain Stage/Vampire Hexmage in the same standard rotation? Well, they did manage to let the cat combo go through, but still.

    • Random Guy

      There are some very strong high CMC cards in HOU.

  • Shawn Michael Diaz

    This thing has a seriously high potential.

  • Edward

    Of all of the Mythics so far this seems to have the highest potential for standard. I mean with 2 other creatures it is already a 6/6 for 5 and that is a low number of creatures for green. That also isn’t adding the abilities it can gain. Play this with Adorned Pouncer to get Double Strike. This could be a good finisher in the right deck

    • Tyler Alexander Phillips

      also any pump spells that give abilities (ie temur battle rage) are nice

  • Julian Allen

    …so it wants you to build keyword soup and an army

    • Shagoth

      Just play a bunch of bottom bin garbage which have different abilities on a curve.

  • Dr. Burn Crow

    Hot friggin dang. That’s a creature.
    Bolas might actually lose between this and the Horse Lord.

    • Grant Jacobson

      this actually gains indestructible off of the horse lord having indestructible if your playing green white

      • Dr. Burn Crow

        Well, seeing as this is going in my Marath tokens EDH, it’s definitely going in there.

      • Random Guy

        The horse lord doesn’t have indestructible, it gives indestructible to its tokens.

        • Grant Jacobson

          sorry didn’t see other, sad panda is sad. (also WotC when is panda tribal a thing?)

          • Random Guy

            OTHER horses

          • Grant Jacobson

            sorry edits didn’t go through first time so my correction was delayed, sad panda is sad.

          • Mov

            When they work out the licensing with Blizzard to have the Gatewatch visit World of Warcraft?

    • Kaiser

      this and the horse are bolas secret weapons anti-oath

  • Random Guy

    But why can’t it be a legendary cat bird snake?

  • dashkatae

    This plus Rhonas can be pretty silly. Have a 5/5 and 4/4 both with deathtouch and indestructible.

  • Loganlovesracing

    Atraxa plus this = Lol

  • Happy The Cat

    oh you sweet behemoth of a swarm leader. I just wish you were legendary so there would be even more reason to love you.

    anyhow Sword of Vengeance.
    and Feed the Pack with grave recursion.

    • ymmij X

      well this is going right into a samut keyword soup deck

  • Ryū

    Just noticed the person in the bottom right corner. That is a big bird-snake-kitty.

    • Ryū

      Or maybe that’s just splintered wood. Well, either way.

      • Hedronal

        I can’t tell, but it makes that thing looke HUGE.

  • Jay Kilian

    Stupid question, but why isn’t the list of keywords in the description alphabetized? Shouldn’t deathtouch be first? After deathtouch they start to go in alphabetical order? Is First Strike first in the list for flavor?

    • Deadly Berry

      Shhh… MaRo is very sensible about his ABC.

    • Vincent Godin-Filion

      Keywords have a strict order on cards. First strike always appear before trample, for example. Why? Only Kefnet knew, and he’s dead…

  • Hedronal

    Is this a cycle of random and good mythic monocolor creatures? If I see one more, Imma start speculating on the other two.

  • Chaospyke

    Wotc Really needs to give that concerted effort a keyword.

    But This is a beautiful card. If this is a cycle this would be a great cycle; A group of random creatures that have no true relation.

  • Deadly Berry

    Blade of Selves- ouch!

  • Akisama Inu

    this would make a nice commander if it were legendary :o
    Already have one with Odric, this guy is a reverse Odric in green, love it :D

    • Mov

      But it will go in EVERY green edh deck though

      • Bige Boiy

        it’s not bad, but i wouldn’t go that far

  • Dante

    Interesting with “CAIRN WANDERER” :)

  • Brandon Bilodeau

    Definately gonna go in my Bant tokens deck when this set comes out.

  • victorseth

    Ok, i REALLY want this.

  • Shagoth

    This seems like it has more abilities to choose from your creatures than most.

    • TogetherAlone

      I think thats just because menace is an official keyword now

  • xSiNx SHADOW

    Atraxa’s new pet look nice

  • DJ Pad

    Interesting creature, unfortunately it’s competing with verdant gearhulk at the 5 spot, which is an 8/8 trample on its own and this is a 2/2 gray ogre.

  • galen150

    i like the idea but trying to put it in a deck that it fits is weird. it wants tokens, but also things like aerial responder that have a bunch of keywords

  • John

    If you use Hour of Eternity will it be a 4/4 or not?

    • De’Elgathor

      Yes, because the ability on Hour of Eternity (and the Scarab God) overrides other abilities.

  • Blahblahblahbla

    This seems pretty legit with Oketra. Turn 2: mana dork > turn 3: Oketra > turn 4: Majestic Myriarch > turn 5: create token and attack for 11 doublestrike, indestructible. Seems like a fun budget standard deck. :)

  • NC

    How many players are going to assume it has flying by default because of the art?

  • kmk888

    T2 Duskwatch Recruiter, T4 Samut on opponent’s end step thanks to Duskwatch flip, T5 Majestic Myriarch as at least a 6/6 with double strike, haste, and vigilance.

    This card is great in any deck that can give it double strike because it scales so large.
