Slum Reaper - 3b
Creature - Horror (U) 
When Slum Reaper enters the battlefield, each player sacrifices a creature.
4/2
With all the tokens, I don't see this being that by of a deal.
Favorite set: Arabian Nights Favorite planeswalker: Taysir, the One Made of Five Favorite book cycle: Ice Age Favorite creature type(s): Elephant (W), Minotaur (R), Shade (B), Spider (G), Cephalid (U) Myr (Artifact) Pauper: Monoblack Control Modern: Zombie Tribal; Unyaro Stax Cube: The Moons of Mirrodin
A bigger (and thus un-Sun Titan-able) Fleshbag Marauder. Blah.

Seems bad for this set.
Meh I will avoid playing this when possible.

Eeh, im not feeling it. Not that good.
Good against decks slower than yours. Their first creature will most likely be bigger than most of yours, but you have a creature that is fine to pitch to the effect and you end up with a better creature.
4/2 for 4 is fine if you have a dork to sac.

Not too bad. Maybe plyable.

Selesnya and its tokens will laugh at this guy. Golgari's Scavengers will likely be able to rebound from this. It's not as intimidating as it should be, as much as I would like it to shine.

Lady and gentlemen.... I present to you the Edition War without Contrition, the War of the Web, the Mighty Match-up! We're using standard edition war rules. No posts of substance. Do not read the other person's posts with comprehension. Make frequent comparison to video games, MMOs, and CCGs. Use the words "fallacy" and "straw man", incorrectly and often. Passive aggressiveness gets you extra points and asking misleading and inflammatory questions is mandatory. If you're getting tired, just declare victory and leave the thread. Wait for the buzzer... and.... One, two, three, four, I declare Edition War Five, six, seven eight, I use the web to Go!

D&D should not return to the days of blindfolding the DM and players. No tips on encounter power? No mention of expected party roles? No true meaning of level due to different level charts or tiered classes? Please, let's not sacrifice clear, helpful rules guidelines in favour of catering to the delicate sensibilities of the few who have problems with the ascetics of anything other than what they are familiar with.

Just a quick note on the MMORPG as an insult comparison... MMORPGs, raking in money by the dumptruck full. Many options, tons of fans across many audiences, massive resources allocated to development. TTRPGs, dying product. Squeaking out an existence that relys on low cost. Fans fit primarily into a few small demographics. R&D budgets small, often rushed to market and patched after deployment. You're not really making much of an argument when you compare something to a MMORPG and assume people think that means bad. Lets face it, they make the money, have the audience and the budget. We here on this board are fans of TTRPGs but lets not try to pretend none of us play MMORPGs.

Something like Tactical Shift is more magical than martial healing.
Telling someone to move over a few feet is magical now? :| I weep for this generation.
Given the laziness and morbid obsesity amongst D&Ders, being able to convince someone to get on their feet, do some heavy exercise, and use their words to make them be healthier must seem magical.

Blah. I'd prefer Fleshbag Marauder.

I am okay with a bigger Fleshbag Marauder.

But this is Golgari, or Rakdos. Though I don't see pitching a creature as being a good idea for Rakdos as all your creatures are just a little above the curve with no abilities and the inability to block. It's really a more dedicated sligh style, at least that's how it feels to me. For Golgari being able to sac a guy and still get value out of him basically means you won that trade.

Clearly not designed for standard given the token thing that's going on. Still, it's efficient. What more can you ask?
But this is Golgari, or Rakdos.

Somebody didn't read the flavor text.  This is an Orzhov early arival, just like the angel was an early showing for Boros.

@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.

Fleshbag Marauder's too weak with a 1 toughness butt. This is stronger in Limited IMO.

I'd say in limited the difference between 1 and 2 toughness is actually less emphasized than any other toughness difference. Goblin Piker and Grizzly Bear are very similar, because nobody wants to play a Squire.
But this is Golgari, or Rakdos.

I can't read the flavortext because it isn't written and I'm at work. Also as this card will only get played in this limited environment, grudgingly, in Golgari, I'll call it a Golgari card.

Does the player using Slum Reaper need to sacrifice Slum Reaper if it is the only creature in play as it eneters the battlefield?
Yup
Thanks!
