Card of the Day - Wandering Corpse

The maximize cost on Wandering Corpse is really high!  If you look at the type line, you'll see why.


  1. Interacts well with the basic supertype! If basic ever appears on a nonland card in a set, it'd be best to have a new keyword that does something to interact with it, like maximize is doing here.

  2. If I understand correctly, the Basic super-type overrides the 4-card limit, then Maximize allows you to 'dump' as many of the Basic super-type as you have in your library into play? Except for a board wipe in response, that seems a but overpowered, but a heck of a lot of fun!

    1. Normally I include the reminder text: (Basic cards aren’t bound by the four card maximum rule.)

  3. *bit overpowered.... sigh.

  4. Overpowered? Since when is a 9 mana win condition that takes a turn to sent up over powered? or a 2/2 for 3?

  5. Absolute worst case scenario? Opponent gets swung on for 84 damage on turn 10. (Provided my mental calculation is correct)
    Granted, that's a pretty deep game; however, this is Magic the Gathering, not Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume You don't get bonuses for overkill.
