Angus Mackenzie - Legends. Rare
WUG: Summon Legend
WUGT: Creatures attack and block as normal, but none deal damage during combat. All attacking creatures are still tapped. Use this ability any time before attack damage is dealt.
"Battles no longer served a purpose in Karukas.

Awesome control card. As long as this card is in play and you conserve your mana, your opponent will be speechless on the issue of attacking. It's out atleast 3 turn or even less since you can mana accel with the 1/3 green mana. The 2 body is kinda harsh... 1/3 would be even better for this guy. Either way, it's pretty cool.

The Duck's Rating: 3/5

A nice card that control can use to stop aggro until it's able to find it's win condition, only problem is the effect would have been better if all you had to do was tap it. 3/5

Old school. IMO though, Dawnstrider was better overall. Cheaper and splashable and a good discard engine. But that's just me.

Anyway, Angus is the infinite Fog/Holy Day/Darkness. It's somewhat useful, but not particularly amazing, as there's nothing to stop an Aggro player from playing a Shock to kill Angus. Also, the legend rule is still a kick in the crotch.

THE LEGEND RULE MAKES CLONE THE BEST LEGEND REMOVAL SPELL EVER!!
