Malignus

But in their fateful hour, the villagers beat him! This card makes no sense.

Snapcaster Mage is the best card of all time. How do you deal?

Fun in EDH I guess? Maybe Heartless can get this guy out fast enough in standard, but I doubt it.
I was just about to make a thread.  Darn.

I first read this as being equal to the whole life, not half of it.  So much for Phage.

This isn't bad, I guess.  Not really worth it though.  5 mana for at best a 10/10... Maybe in Commander.
Best name since Gigantomancer.

This is pretty cool. Inquisitor's Flail mayhaps? I'm sure there are even better equipments outside of the block that can be used to essentially double his size. Fireshrieker?

Edit: Gisela. Looks like it would make a fun casual deck.
Why SCD instead of ICD?
The unfortunate thing is getting out Gisela is enough to win already.  Still, fun for casual silliness, yeah.

Card looks pretty cool. Clicked on this expecting it to be legendary, though.

which part? To beat face in for 9 for 3 mana? That seems pretty awesome to me.

So...

Step One: Play red.

Step Two: Bring your opponent down to six life.

Step Three: Cast a vanilla 3/3 for 5cc. 

Step Four: ???

Step Five: Profit!

The part where it's better than the titans... which it isn't. Not better than wurmcoil either. Even if they're at 20, which they won't be most of the time, especially if you connect with this guy.

For mono-red you would use Hellrider and if you are splashing another color you play the better fatties from those colors like Gisela or the green card-draw fatty.

I feel like this card will only be played in EDH.

Oh, my God. I didn't even notice he was mythic. That's terrible.

So let me get this straight? This guy gets WEAKER the more you hurt your opponent. So he's terrible at any time you are winning the game? And he costs how much? If he had flying or something then maybe but not even that. Ugh. Dollar mythic may be a little high. He may make it as a proxy back cover.

I do suppose if you're going to play this card, you should hope that your opponent is playing Archangel's Light since it combos with this! Undecided
At least he's castable.  And in multiplayer games he can be scary.
Multiplayer card (hint you don't attack the player who's health he is based off). 1 on 1 he's lack luster. He could be a decent soulbond target for either wingcrafter or the trample granting dude. But again he get's weaker and can't kill till they are at one life, without help (the silverheart could help here). 

20,10,5,2,10- 5 attacks to kill alone with him.

Not impressed with him honestly.

Also this is not legendary why?

Because I'm a durdle.

Combos well with Gratuitous Violence, Furnace of Rath, Curse of Bloodletting, Inquisitor's Flail, Blossom, etc
And then suddenly he goes Berserk after drinking Wine of Blood and Iron.

I guess Curse Of Bloodletting and this guy, maybe with blue for Artful Dodge or something?

This guy is pretty cool though, I wonder if he is taking the "dragon" spot in AVR.

Speaking of dragons, to the guy who was saying this would go into the "Inferno Titan" spot once that rotates.. I'd rather play Balefire Dragon or Moonveil Dragon over this guy even at higher cost.

I like the kind of mess it can make of a boardstate, but it's kind of a "fake" threat in that the more it does what it's supposed to do, the less efficiently it does that.

OMG click HERE! OMG! How to autocard and use decklist format
--->
For autocarding, write [c][/c] with the name of the card inside it. [c]Island[/c] = Island For linking a card to Gatherer without writting the name of said card for readers, use the autocard brackets together with and equal sign and right the name of the real card. Then put the message you want inside the tags, like you would do with autocarding. Like this: [c=Curse of the Cabal]Captain Never-resolves[/c] = Captain Never-resolves For using the decklist format, follow this: [deck] 4* Terramorphic Expanse 4* Evolving Wilds ... [/deck] It equals:

Oh, it's a brilliant plan. You see, Bolas was travelling through shadowmoor, causing trouble, when he saw a Wickerbough Elder with its stylin' dead scarecrow hat. Now, Bolas being Bolas took the awesome hat and he put it on his head, but even with all his titanic powers of magic he couldn't make it fit. He grabbed some more scarecrows, but then a little kithkin girl asked if he was trying to build a toupee. "BY ALL THE POWERS IN THE MULTIVERSE!" he roared, "I WILL HAVE A HAT WORTHY OF MY GLORY." and so he went through his Dark Lore of Doom (tm) looking for something he could make into a hat that would look as stylish on him as a scarecrow does on a treefolk. He thought about the Phyrexians, but they were covered in goopy oil that would make his nonexistant hair greasy. He Tried out angels for a while but they didn't sit quite right. Then, he looked under "e" (because in the Elder Draconic alphabet, "e" for Eldrazi is right next to "h" for Hat) in his Dark Lore of Doom and saw depictions of the Eldrazi, and all their forms. "THIS SHALL BE MY HAT!" he declared, poking a picture of Emrakul, "AND WITH IT I WILL USHER IN A NEW AGE OF DARKNESS -- ER, I MEAN A NEW AGE OF FASHION!" And so Nicol Bolas masterminded the release of the Eldrazi.

Doesn't work for a couple reasons. His power will go down before the second strike hits, so you'll only knock them down to 5 with Double Strike. Alsoyou can only bond one guy to him, so you couldn't get him both Double Strike and Haste off of Soulbond.

I like the card, and it's Commander fun, but it's not good.

didn't realize that about bond...

good call on the damage going down, that is lame...bah

edit: One last chance to salvage:

what about as sb card if soul sisters.dec (or the ilk) comes back...if they have 50 life, he's pretty helpful for a red deck
Furnace of Rath + Sneak Attack + this could be a suprising t3-5 win with some mana acceleration. Boring, I know.
But "combos" like that are so unreliable... and red is not my color.
No fan!
Grafted Exoskeleton
Kills at 15+ life in one hit. Never loses power either, so if they're between 5 and 14 life it kills in two hits.
Not impressed.

Or Phyresis.  Or, in a pinch, Glistening Oil or Corrupted Conscience.

So wait, in theory, by itself, can this thing ever kill an opponent? It can never do more than half damage to them and even if they had 1 this creature would disappear out of existence. How is that good?

It's rounded up, so when your opponent is at 1 HP it would kill him. Jay!

At least it walks through Fog and other generic damage prevention. Too bad it doesn't walk through spirit tokens though...
If I'm right, I'm right. If I'm wrong, I still believe I'm right. Think of it as religion. dubito ergo sum.
[...]Too bad it doesn't walk through spirit tokens though...


Haha you just made me realize that I read something on this card, which was never written there!
I thought somehow it could assign its combat damage as though it weren't blocked.
Thorn Elemental like. But every blocker is able to stop this guy, too!
Yeah I'm so not playing this ever, sorry. =<
Make it big in multiplayer using wall of shards and then attack another guy and fling it at yet another.
