  • Wolvrik

    wow this card is soo broken lolz

  • Empyrean

    It seems this set has serious issues with rarity as most of its mythics seem to be complete and utter crap while its rares and even uncommons seem to be amazing and even broken at times.

    • Jared

      I would agree, look at everwolf. do you see a resemblence with this card? maybe they will make uncommons like this for every tribe in innistrad.

  • Macgunes

    wtf?! uncommon?!

  • Wisdom

    Wow… +1/+1 and first strike from a 3 mana requires 2 colors creature than can be controled with the most basic tactics being a 2/2 and all… is BROKEN?

    *sigh* They have one for every tribe, and like the guildmages of ravnica, they are good… not broken.

    However, some of the commons are far better than some of the uncommons and I cant think of a mythic I have seen so far I dont like (that includes the 8 mana gain 2 life for each creature in your graveyard card… because that card just-so-happens to be white which is one of the spirit colors… and I happen to like drawing a card for each card in my graveyard… and of course flipping chalice of life…)

    Rememeber That standard when this comes out is rotating so that mirradin is gone altogether. Not as many… “broken” things.

    I disagree with it being ‘broken,’ though I had that feeling at first as well. If it was just one color and/or said “Creatures you control…,” then that would be awesome. But, it only works for Vampires, does not give the +1/+1 to itself, and can be smoked by something as small as a Scorch. I do agree that it should have been a rare, like Death Baron, for what it does. If by ‘Broken,” you mean it should not have been an uncommon, then I would tend to agree.
