5.0: First pick no matter what.  I will always play this card.
4.5: Splashable and first pick worthy.
4.0: First pick pack 1.
3.5: Early pick though not always a first pick.
3.0: Solid early/mid pick.
2.5: Solid pick in color.
2.0: Should generally make the deck if in this color.
1.5: Decent filler.
1.0: 23rd card if you have to.
0.5: This card will sometimes be sideboarded in.
0.0: I will never put this card into my deck (main deck or after sideboarding).


I don't normally like running this guy.  He's expensive for both his mana cost and scavenge cost.  Granted a permanent +5/+5 is nothing to sneeze at there is still better options in my opinion.

1.5. If you don't have bombs, he's a good curve topper. Usually he'll trade for two things.
Check out my cube!

Since i've got a good eye for color so it looks great to people who don't get the "joke" (it's a niceley divided circle after all: the outline gives you 4-6 "regions" to work with), this has actually got me put on platter design more often, resulting in Phyrexia's presence at more private and industry events.

I'm going to go 1.0 as well.
0.5 in my book.

I can't give this a 1.0 as I'm NEVER looking to play this. I could see sideboarding it against a slow deck if my top end was light and I felt I really needed to.
bulletd Guidelines: 5.0: I will take this card no matter what. Creature 1 or playable 1 or hate 1.Archangel of Thune 4.5: Bomb and splashable. Creature 1-2, playable 1-2, removal 1. Jace, Memory Adept 4.0: Excellent first pick first pack, will sway me into same colors. Creatures 1-4, removal 1. Haunted Plate Mail 3.5: Excellent first pack pick two, will confirm colors or possibly sway into second color. Doom Blade 3.0: Good in-color addition, or splashable removal/creature. Creatures 3-9, removal 1-3. wall of Frost 2.5: Solid pick in-color; creatures 5-12, removal 3-5. Dark Favor 2.0: Creatures 10-16; removal 6-7. Elvish Mystic 1.5: My 23rd or 22nd card, depending on removal. Act of Treason 1.0: 23rd card if I don't maindeck an additional land. Lay of the Land 0.5: This card will sometimes be sideboarded in. Brave the Elements 0.0: I will shred this card for counters. Darksteel Forge
1.0 I have played it when I needed a big critter at the top.
Maybe I'm a little too dismissive of it but this card is a zero in my mind, currently I feel like there will always be something available that is more playable.
1-1.5. Deadbridge Goliath is a lot better... But this is not as bad as people think.

Yeah, but deadbridge goliath is a bomb rare.

Playable in draft, but better in sealed.

Anyways, I guess when you're busy doing space stuff you can't always be around to ensure quality control. It's no wonder they choose Garfield, they're so much alike; that's exactly what happened to him and Magic.

is what makes this not Goliath. That's certainly substantial, but it's not a complete game-changer.

I've maindecked him because I had to, and he's actually pretty efficient once he's in play as removing him doesnt erase the threat, but you generally don't want this guy in your deck. The 7 mana slot should be reserved for bombs. This is not that.

Goliath comes down on turn 4 making him an absolute beast. This comes down on turn 10 usually. I want my games to be over by then.

Regularly see this guy come back for 13th-15th pick.

I'm just saying that "worse than (bomb rare that you play every time it's in your colors)" isn't a very useful comparison to make.  It doesn't tell you how good the card is, or when you should play it.

1.  I've never played this guy, i'll most likely never play this guy, and i've only seen him be a factor in one game ever.  Golgari and Rakdos both play pretty aggressively, and a 7 drop just isn't needed.
