Return to Ravnica – Spoiler – Deadbridge Goliath and New Mechanic!

Hello Nurglings!

Now we got our third card from Return to Ravnica! This one with the new mechanic for Golgari: Scavenge (that’s what I think anyway since it doesn’t feel very Selesnya). To see it, just read the rules for the cards here below.

Deadbridge Goliath 2GG
Scavenge 4GG (exile this card from your graveyard to put x +1/+1 counters on target freature where x is this creatures power. Use this ability only as a sorcery)

Okay so people are really underwhelmed by this card so far by the fact that the Scavenge ability cost way too much. Maybe we should look at the creature instead, we’re getting a 5/5 for four mana. Four mana is not a big issue in a green deck, and having a 5/5 beater early is never a negative thing. Not sure if it will cut it in the future of green, but we will have to wait and see what the rest of the Golgari cards do for it.

Another thing is the fact that once this creature is taken care of, you get another spell to play with just like with flashback spells. It’s “just” a pump spell, but that seems like a good deal if your opponent had to waste a removal or a creature to take care of it to begin with.

I would say this card, is probably a new and better version of…

Yea, so until next time Nurglings, take care.
Cya soon!
