    It’s like a really bad Lorthos wannabe that was taught by Dungeon Geists.

      I wish these Monstrosity cards were capable of having some merits to them when not monstrous. They are basically vanilla creatures until they become monstrous and a bit poorly costed compared to other Vanilla monsters of the same power and toughness. I mean I pretty much have to deal with having a 6/6 vanilla creature for a turn or two until I got the mana to spend on Monstrosity.

      Here is hoping that we will get some form of Monstrosity support card that can trigger Monstrosity in some form without paying the specific Monstrosity cost. Kinda like the double face support cards in Innistrad that would trigger transformations or keep werewolves from transforming back.

        The only revealed red monstrosity is vanilla before monstrous but it’s does have a higher toughness than casting cost and a power equal to it’s casting cost. So even if they are all vanilla before monstrous activates (which is unlikely, or even if all from this set are, nothing stops there from being different ones in “Born of the gods” and “Into the Nyx”) some of them might still be worth the mana cost before monstrous activates. The hydra from the duel deck is another example of a bigger creature than the mana cost, with a nice monstrous effect. Don’t jump to such negative conclusions.

          I will admit that now seeing two more examples of Monstrosity that Polukranus is suddenly that much more appealing. I still have hopes for Monstrosity support cards to allow more strategies focusing on the mechanic. I just get that sick feeling that I know full well that most of the big ones will probably be taken out long before they can wreck some stuff with their effects.

          Man I wish I was still in college with that big group where we played only multiplayer formats. Being unable to play anything in multiplayer format means I can’t pull off fun stuff like this as easily… and it’s affecting how I view these cards… gaaaaah.
