Card of the Day - Brood Hydra

Now that Alara Reborn is finally (pre)released, I don't feel the need to show only multicolor cards any more (or to color critique every card I show). This is the last one. Starting tomorrow, there'll be a new theme week. It will be just like Land Week except without any land.

Power/toughness tied to number of something - All colors. Frequently tied to that something's main color. For hydras, that's red (although green is secondary).
Token generation - All colors. Most common in green, then white, then black and red (about even), then blue.
Card drawing - Blue, then green.
Sacrificing things to draw cards - All colors, but particularly green/blue/black.

Brood Hydra should probably just be green, but blue is excusable.

Original Art


  1. Reminds me of the Lich Lord of Unx...sort of. Maybe a hybrid of Soulless one and Lich Lord of Unx. Not a bad card, especially since you can use it to cheat a progenitus into play fairly easily.

    Yay Hydra Tribal.

  2. Uh... There are no Progenitus shenanigans here. Brood Hydra only makes tokens.

  3. Yup. Use Cryptic Gateway and tap two hydra tokens to pop a Progenitus into play. Hah! No progenitus shenanigans indeed...

Empty your mind.
