Trygon Predator - Dissension. Uncommon
1GU: Creature - Beast
Flying
Whenver Trygon Predator deals combat damage to a player, you may destroy target artifact or enchantment that player controls.
Held aloft by metabolized magic, trygons are ravenous for sources of mystic fuel.
2/3



This is a really cool card. First of all, a 3 for a 2/3 with a decent effect is nice. Now, being able to destroy artifacts/enchantments for each swing... hello! Bye Jitte, Greater Good, etc. I'm loving it.

The Duck's Rating: 3.25/5

A 2/3 with flying for three is great and the effect is not bad either. 3/5

Not bad. 3 mana for 2/3 + Flying is pretty good. Chuck in artifact/enchantment destruction, and it's as imbalanced as Nullmage Shepherd. >_< Ownage.

3.5/5.

Umm... Nothing is as imba as Nullmage short of a pair of Beacon of Tomorrows.
Anyway, 3 mana 2/3 Flying is a decently good mana -> Body, and the ability is effective to the nth degree without becoming haxed... Yeah, I like it.
Reminds me of things like Rustmouth Ogre if memory serves.

But Rustmouth doesn't eat enchantments.......And it doesn't have Trample, making it hard to hit the player and destroy an artifact.

Bloody REMINDS me of.
Oh, never mind.
At any rate though, it's still not as hax as Nullmage and her destruction of my nth Magemark.

Though a Jitte in a Flying deck will have a hard time being destroyed....
