View Full Version : MTG COTD: Triassic Egg

22nd February 2006, 9:23 PM
Triassic Egg - Legends, Chronicles. Rare
4: Artifact
3T: Put one counter on Triassic Egg. If there are at least two such counters, you may sacrifice Triassic Egg to take any creature from your hand or graveyard and put it directly into play. Treat this as creature as though it were just summoned.
3,T: Put a hatchling counter on Triassic Egg.
0: Sacrifice Trassic Egg to take target creature from your hand or graveyard and put it directly into play as though it were just summoned. Use this ability only when there are at least two hatchling counters on Triassic Egg.

This card seems kinda useful to me. Sure, it takes 10 mana total, but by turn 6, you could play a Darksteel Colossus, or help multi colored reanimation A LOT. It does take a couple turns to set up, I'll admit that, but it isn't as bad as it looks like since what are you gonna use with your late game mana?

The Duck's Rating: 2.5/5

Takes ten mana to get going, but being able to take a creature from your graveyard or hand and put it into play is pretty powerful, though while this is in play it will have a big target on it's head. 2/5

Not bad. A useful Darksteel Colossus summoning ultility when not using Mycosynth Golem/Lattice combo. Of course, this can allow you to bring back big monsters that get killed......like my friend's Krojan Colossus. >_< 4/5.

I LIKE it. A lot. Granted sacrificing the Egg is quite sad, but it is good and good all about. Do you see me complaining? No.

Um....With stuff like Skeleton Shard and Ritual of Restoration from Mirrodin and Darksteel respectively, I don't see anyone complaining about not enough artifact regen. -looks around-

Of course assuming you're playing a Block set...

Well that entire block is about artifacts. Anyway, cards like this one are reasons why Voltaic Key is restricted.

There's enough artifact regen floating around out there for abuse, thank you very much.
