[Battle for Zendikar] Guardian of Tazeem

nde bannerThe World Championships are running right now at PAX, and while I’m excited to see no less than two Swedes fighting for the title, I’m also excited for the new Battle for Zendikar spoilers! This little thing showed up in the middle of the stream yesterday:

As of right now, I haven’t found a better scan, so I apologize for the quality.

While this fellow probably won’t make a splash in any of the constructed formats I care about (Legacy and EDH), he is a complete Limited bomb and a very effective beater. 4/5 flier for 5 is above the curve as-is, and the Landfall ability makes it crazy. Despite what I said about constructed formats, fetchlands make him even more crazy, since that means he can tap down two things.

Overall, I’d say it’s a good card with a neat design. What do you think?

    Yeah, it’s pretty boss actually. Get this guy in a draft and you’re pretty much playing blue. While I’ll probably not be intressted in playing the card in any of my EDH decks I still like the design, very elegant use of landfall. The illustration is neat as well.

    • Very true, I didn’t even comment on the art, but it is also really cool. Getting closer to my hypothetical EDH Sphinx tribal deck! 🙂
