Add Assassin's Trophy for good measure. I like the way how you ramp, probably consider adding Spiritmonger , Lotleth Giant , Carnage Tyrant and Ghalta, Primal Hunger

DemonDragonJ: looking at the list of top 50 most used creatures in legacy, Spiritmonger isn't on the list. can you show me a legacy deck that uses Spiritmonger ?

DemonDragonJ could you please explain why Spiritmonger is too prowerful for modern and would make it more like legacy?

PlatinumOne, I believe that Spiritmonger is too powerful for modern, since I highly doubt that WotC wishes for modern to become too similar to legacy.

I do, however, think that both Bind and Phyrexian Tyranny would be nice in this set, although WotC may be hesitant to introduce bind to modern, since it is a strong bend of the current color pie.

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor: i already own a playset of Spiritmonger , all old artwork. i like the new artwork, but i started with 3 of the old artwork and found a vendor who had both new and old art. i like my stuff to match lol. i'll take that beast (pun intended) to FNM in a heartbeat if its reprinted.

PlatinumOne - Now that would be a blast from the past, but only if they bring back the O.G. Spiritmonger artwork.

DemonDragonJ: as fun as all of those cards may be in a casual setting, im not sure that they're quite on par with the power level of modern. the reprints they choose will need to be powerful cards if they want to sell packs that will have an impact on modern.

that being said, i think Spiritmonger could be strong enough to see modern play. cmc 5 dodges Fatal Push while being easy to ramp into, and its in the perfect color combo for mana ramp and interaction until you can cast it. at the very least, it would be an excellent addition to Heartless Summoning decks.

Spiritmonger is just a big dumb beater that turns sideways though;

No evasion built in, a small amount of protection in Regeneration, and a color changing ability that would need to be worked with to be at all relevant. I don’t understand what’s “over-powered” about it.

When I think overpowered for the mana cost/power creep I’m looking at Serra Angel vs Baneslayer Angel, the evolution of the 2/2, reds variety of threatening one drops (Goblin Guide ever?), ridiculous enter the battlefield abilities (Titans, Grey Merchant of Asphodel and Siege Rhino?) and stuff that’s hard to get rid of.

I think the point of all this though is with the increased power level of removal spells, forced sacrifice and other things that make creatures less effective, creatures need to get stronger to balance it out. It doesn’t mean P/T higher than CMC, because that’s always been more of a guideline for a starting point than a hard and fast rule. It just means that the creature needs to be balanced for the environment it’s in. A 6/6 trample for 6 isn’t even that scary in limited any more because you probably have a bunch of options to deal with it, unless you didn’t hold one in preparation. That’s how creatures beat people, not because they’re bigger than their mana cost...
