What's your Favorite Plainshift critter? I voted Hippo all the way. I want to know what you think.
why is Meddling Mage not on the list??
Anyway, I vote for Flametongue Kavu
Well, I would have said Questing Pheldagriff as the weird one, but it's not the weird one anymore, DARN IT!
So I'll say Marsh Crocodile. I call him Fluffy.
Sorry I didn't include more options, but I was really tired.
That's a tough choice. Possible candidates include:
Voice of All
Okay, let's try to pare that down a bit...
Hmmmm. I can't decide between these four.
I think FTK is best.
Not my favourite, but it`s certainly the best.
My favourite would probably be Thornscape or Thunderscape Battlemage - I`d struggle to choose which, but probably go with the Thunderscape. He`s a powerful individual.
there is no doubt in the power of Flametongue Kavu, but there is just something about Voice of All, if i played white this angel would probably be in a deck
FTK is my favorite!
This guy just screws blocking schemes, makes a lot of creatures obsolete, and forces you to consider him in constructing your deck, the same way Blastoderm does.
In the constructed environment, it's seems that Voice of All is this best creature that Planeshift has to offer. It just stands up to so much. Hello, mister Blastoderm. What's that, you are attacking? Nah, you just stand there. Mister FTK? Why are you trying to shoot me? You know that you'll just miss!
Ransac, cpa trash man
I voted for Voice of All. I like angels and this one is pretty good and the Art is okay. I think FTK and meddling mage should have been on the list.
I voted for Voice of All. There's few creatures in Magic who can change or chose their protection. Being invunerable to an entire color is great, the card singlehandedly discourages monocolor decks. Plus the name is just cool
After that, probably the Flametongue Kavu, but his effectiveness is really weakened playing against white. Which has the Voice of All as well as Acolytes.
Thunderscape Battlemage is a close second to Thornscape Battlemage for me. All creatures that get killed by FTK can be killed by Thornscape, and Thornscape kills Orbs, Webs, Millstones, Bridges and Idols. Tough to say that this is better than killing Opposition, Story Circle, Teferi's Moat, Fires or Burst in all cases, but it is a little less situational. So here goes:
Voice of All
for a Top 10.
Hmmm. I still say that Scuta, FTK, Mage, and the Wurm go Top 4.
Can be a 5/5 for 4
Can be a 3/3 if you don't wanna pay the life
Beefy-phat for black
Costs you 3 life to grow him
Bereft of any other powers
Bounce is not your friend
You still pay 3 life if your opponent counters
Deals 4 when he comes in
Lightning Blast's big brother
Big in front
Can be forced to hit himself
In-flavor for W/U control
A 2/2 is easy to kill
Only handles one card
In Type 2, what combos?
Did I mention he only costs 5 mana?
Works great in Fires, an established archetype
Gotta bounce something when he comes in
Still vulnerable to tapping and/or Dark Banishing stuff
So it looks like it's down to Shivan Wurm vs. FTK...both very good choices. Amusingly enough, they're good friends. Play FTK for a 4-point splat, play the Wurm, and replay FTK for another splat.
My favorite deck type is UW control so I gotta go with Meddling Mage.
If the Mage were harder to kill, I'd place it higher.
I'd like it more if it were a 1/3. Heck, I'd even be cool with it as a 0/4.
