Here is a MTGO game featuring, rather conviently, the MTGO version of Wild Evocation Deck. Watch with awe as my opponent gets owned by 8 4/5 plant tokens.

Eight M11 Cards I really like

Posted by Mr Z on Tuesday, August 24th 2010 at 13:49

It's been over a month since M11 hit the world, and it seemed to be a good time to comment on the Eight M11 cards I really, really liked. These are cards that have found their way into decks that I have been working on and have impressed.

Knight Exemplar
Knight Exemplar

Who doesn't like indestructable knights? This little guy can be a real handfull if you get two onto the battlefield at the same time with the means of protecting them.

Phylactery Lich
Phylactery Lich

The star of my Lich Mob deck. I'd rate this as the coolest card from M11 by far.

Crystal Ball
Crystal Ball

Scry is good... repeatable scry - priceless.

Stormtide Leviathan
Stormtide Leviathan

This dude is surprisingly effective at what it does. with Mass Polymorph
Mass Polymorph
this card forms the backbone of my Mass'o'Morph deck.

Mass Polymorph

I was unconvinced by this care when I first saw it. After playing with it though I found it to be pretty effective.

Cultivate
Cultivate

I have managed to use up all of my copies across a number of different decks. Simply superb.

Sun Titan

Great at bringing back knights, Oblivion Rings
Oblivion Ring
, and other neat cards. Rated highly.

Grave Titan
Grave Titan

Ten power of dudes for six mana - what else needs to be said!

Mass-O-Morph

New kid on the block!

A Mass Polymorph
Mass Polymorph
deck featuring Three Big Fish
Stormtide Leviathan
, Three Big Elephants
Terastodon
and One Big Sphinx
Goliath Sphinx
. Initial testing suggests that this deck could be a contender at FNM, coming from left field and hopefully being able to crush all and sundry.

It seems to be fairly robust, and can very suddenly kill out of nowhere. The Terastodon
Terastodon
/Stormtide Leviathan
Stormtide Leviathan
combo is viscious, destroying their lands and giving them an army of useless elephant tokens who sit by while the fish and Sphinx go bash up side their heads.

Watch this space for a report when I next get to FNM...
