Nefarox, Overlord of Grixis
Legendary Creature - Demon (R)

Flying
Exalted
Whenever Nefarox, Overlord of Grixis attacks alone, defending player sacrifices a creature.

5/5
NOTE: This is the foil rare for the black Magic 2013 Intro pack.
What?

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

Yeah, black Exalted is weird. I guess this is where it makes sense, though... pitiful masses worshiping their overlord.

Looks like a good replacement for Grave Titan post rotation I also hope this is the new cycle replacing titans seems sweet.

Edit. Didn't see it was legendary now it's much less powerful than I thought but still probably decent as a UB Control finisher after rotation.

>grixis card in core set

also why is this legendary? :/
Huh, so not only are we getting multicolor in a core set, but legendary creature(s), too. This seems to be the intersection point between Exalted and Avacyn Restored's loner theme. Nice distinction from the way Bant handled it. Hope it's not just in black, though, I've got a fun exalted casual deck that could use some new tools.
Exalted in black: bowing to the greater power. I like it. And yeah the sacing a creature on attack (when this would be a 6/6 or more) can me mean. It's a mini eldrazi if it attacks along.

Legend in core set is interesting. Alara shout out is interesting...my interest in this core set is raised.

Grave titan didn't see play? I remember it being in the u/b tezz deck. It was outmatched by caw-blade. But it was used in player of the year match 2 years ago.

Anyways, I'll take a moan of the unhallowed on ETB, +1/+1, deathtouch, not being a legend, and giving a moan on every attack instead of an edict, and getting that ability even if it attacks with its buddies over... exalted?

This is a bad grave titan, and grave titan didn't even see any play.  I see no reason to believe that this will, even after rotation.  Oh well, it's time for Niche to pay another visit to Mrs.  Rosewater...



Wait... Grave Titan didn't see any play since when? I think this card is probably good enough in a dedicated control deck like UB once the titans and sphinx rotate.

Comparing rare to mythic rare. Comparing a card designed to be ridiculously powerful to one designed for one deck. 

And I'm pretty sure Grave titan saw play plenty, Inferno titan is the only one I don't remeber see a lot of, and even he showed up from time to time.

Inferno Titan is showing up right now in a tier 1 deck the least popular titan has always been Frost Titan mainly due to the fact that Consecrated Sphinx is in the same colour and is a much better card.

Frost Titan was rocking a while back, even before consecrated. It has been a while since it saw major play though. Basically they all saw play: With Prime and Sun being the most consistently played.

I think it's a good card, though.  Creature sacrifice is pretty good.

Pretty sure this^^ was said in jest guys. We really need an internet sarcasm detector sometimes.

Edit: Also....now we know who Nefarox is!
"I have existed from the morning of the world and I shall exist until the last star falls from the night. Although I have taken the form of Gaius Caligula, I am all men as I am no man and therefore I am a God."
I like it.
I'm sad to see move Exalted from Bant to (supposedly) Grixis, my Rafiq deck wanted new toys.

I see they haven't found any new design space with Exalted yet.

Grixis?  Legendary in a core set?  Exalted in black?  What on earth is this?

Don't forget we'll also have gold cards on this same core set!



This is madness, I say! Madness!

Exalted makes scents in black cult followers/worshipers, I like how in core sets there planar chaos-ing old abiltys. Like giving bloodthirst to vampires. Invisible stalker is going to be more fun in the rotation

I am both selfish and chaotic. I value self-gratification and control; I want to have things my way, preferably now. At best, I'm entertaining and surprising; at worst, I'm hedonistic and violent.
This card is just really cool.
This card is cool but not great.

I like how black stole two core set mechanics in a row.  And it had scry too, though I think it always had scry.

Yeah white is due for some coreset mechanic love.

Scry was artifacts, blue, and black. Bloodthirst was black/red/green. this is black and we don't know yet. Hopefully it'll be white too.

Considering exalted was originally white I don't see why not.
Yeah other colors need some old none of the origal color mechanics.

I'm guessing Exalted will be Esper colors. It never made too much sense in green, honestly.

Cult followers/worshipers sounds more like part of white than part of Black, with all those religious nuts and whatnot. Exalted does fit a demon like this fairly well though.
I see they haven't found any new design space with Exalted yet.

Returning mechanics in Core Sets aren't supposed to find new design space. That's one of the rules of letting them exist in core sets.

I'm really interested to know how many legendaries are going to be in the set, and whether or not they'll all be from Alara.

I think the problem they had with the legends in 10th Ed is that none of the characters were relevant to the current storyline, so it was sending mixed signals.

"Here! have some way cool significant characters!"

"Oh wow, thanks miste-"

"They all died hundreds of years ago!"

I'd like Hostility, Vigor etc. to come back.

I loved seeing a bunch of characters from the past show up, and the little booklet that came with the Fat Pack explained who (half) of them were. Between all the Timeshifted cards in Time Spiral, and the Legendaries in Tenth, I got really interesting in the story of the game.

Now if only I could find the old books. I hope they reprint some more, like they did with the Artifacts Cycle.

Dunno if i like those 3 colored mana in there but guess its ok too.



Also, I don't think they were heavily played during their STD time. I'm not sure they would be iconic enough to be the poster mythics for the set.

They'd be cool as a cycle of rares, tho. 
There aren't going to be random guys from random planes beyond the storyline.

The push for the core set in cooperation with Duel of the Planewalkers 2013 is all about Bolas and his return into the storyline.
And remember that he used to have a lair and allies from the Grixis, so if he wants to make another grab for power I would assume he is using every asset he has available.

He appeared to very few people on Alara, he mostly used his agents as middlemen.

Which, on Grixis were Malfegor, who is dead; and the Split-Eye Coven, who are far from the most significant influence on the plane.

He would currently have very little direct influence on Grixis.
I disagree, but we will find out.  All we know for certain is Bolas is a huge push for this summer and he use to dwell on Grixis.  Yes the plane has changed but he may have either allies or enemies in the new Grixis, but it has something to do with Bolas.
He would currently have very little direct influence on Grixis.

Rakka Mar was a Jund girl wasn't she? 

@mikemearls The office is basically empty this week, which opens up all sorts of possibilities for low shenanigans

@mikemearls In essence, all those arguments I lost are being unlost. Won, if you will. We're doing it MY way, baby.

@biotech66 aren't you the boss anyway? isn't "DO IT OR I FIRE YOU!" still an option?

@mikemearls I think Perkins would throat punch me if I ever tried that. And I'd give him a glowing quarterly review for it.

He would currently have very little direct influence on Grixis.

Indeed she was.
Ajani kind of exploded her.
