  1. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    But if you play it, when you only have three cards in your hand, your throwing your whole hand away to clear the board. Surely this doesn't combine with the idea of weenie decks to apply a lot of pressure early on and keep pushing until the opponents life total has dropped to zero?

    It feels like a panic button, but perhaps that is not such a bad thing :)

    I don't know...

    I think it's too expensive for most decks... I don't like the ACC. 3 cards to clear the board is a lot... I don't see how that's better than 4 Mana, unless you have some card drawing engine...
  3. Gizmo Composite: 1860

    Creatures can regenerate. That's quite key.

    Me likey. Me really likey. I've lways been a far of Tradewind Rider and cards of the like. Additionally, the card really shows the flavor of the "bad-guy" wizard whose power relies on the cold.

    EDIT: 3,000 POSTS!!!!! WOO!
  5. BigBlue Magic Jones

    Wow... a key to making it even less useful, I hadn't even noticed that... 7 mana or 3 cards to only destroy all creatures... I would say it's a typo... Not even if it were an instant... Though that would make it more compelling.
  6. BigBlue Magic Jones

    He's cool.... and gives reason to want to use snow covered lands... but now "snow covered permanents"... I'm wondering what else you can cover with snow... :D

    Monkeys can be covered in snow!

    Ponies can be covered in snow!!!!!!! :D
  9. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    Dwarven Ponies are so awesome, however, that they melt the snow upon touch AND STILL count as snow-covered!

  10. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    It's no Tradewind Rider. But it might still be viable...
  11. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Yeah, I don't think this card will see too much use after the initial interest has died down.

    The count of snow permanents ran pretty high in coldsnap according to the orb of insight. Accordingly, I dont believe It'll be a problem to get Heidar up and running. And once he's running.....ughh!

    I see a key part of a lockdown combo deck. The combo gets going and your opponent can just sit there and say "Can I die, now?"

    Ohran Viper

    A green Ophidian-Basilisk! I like! It's cheap, draws cards, and chump-block/kills a large monster (or keeps them at bay)! AND it's a snow creature!!

    Now we know what this well-known art really does!

  15. Nightstalkers Creature — Nightstalker

    It's rare too. So at least they know the value of the abilities.
  16. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    I always loved Voracious Cobra.. and this is definitely a step up!
  17. DarthFerret Evil Sith Weasel

    I like this card. If things keep going this way, will definately consider drafting some green in the pre-release on the 8th (or 9th, depending on my days off!)
  18. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Too bad they don't print a green version of Forbid too...
  19. BigBlue Magic Jones

    The way they have hacked up the color pie bugs me...

    I don't know why, especially since I don't play much anymore and buy even less (though I will likely be buying some coldsnap... don't ask why since I don't play much... I'm a little crazy...)
  20. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    I expect to see this card get some play. I hope a lot of play, but we'll see what else this set has to offer.
