Cosmic Horror is. As is Ebon Praetor. Why then, does the governing power level decided upon yield cards on a different power curve than what yielded good fatties with drawbacks? I like my fatties with baggage, dammit. Why, I remember the third time I rage-quit Magic. It was over this new-fangled creature that was enormous and had no drawbacks. It was Darksteel Colossus.
Why then, did I quit? I'd been one-upped by something anti-thetical to my preferences. There's no merits to card design, just value judgments. I hate watching Deadliest Warrior for the same reason. Who's to say giant robots are tougher than Cthuhlu monsters? It's silly every which way!
So when something comes along and corrupts the sentimentality of what I despise, I can't help but grin. Thank you, Blightsteel Colossus, for stopping the bad man.
It begs the question though...now that I think about it. How tough is an Orc? Or an Otyugh? How about a NaOcho? Who says so? It`s just another reason to hate creature spells that aren`t Worldgorgers or kobolds.
Who are the toughest creatures in Magic? Pit Spawn? Engulfing Slagwurm? A Talruum Champion equipped with a Runesword? Who do you think? I just wish that power level didn't not equal concept. And who's the Matt Ward-shaped object that keeps upping the power scales, anyhow?
Just so long as I don't have to look at Darksteel Colossus anymore.
