New Card - Griselbrand

The Monday Avacyn Restored previews continue with a demon that just broke out of the Helvault:


First Impression

Yawgmoth's Bargain on a stick. He's awesome, he's great, and he's a hell of a lot more playable than Avacyn, Angel of Hope. If left unattended, he can rival or surpass Jin-Gitaxias in terms of raw card drawing power. If dealt with right away, he still has an immediate effect through instant draw. He flies, he has lifelink, and he doesn't have a "reshuffle Griselbrand into its owner's library" clause tacked onto the end of his text box. Griselbrand is basically everything you want in an 8cc fatty.

Deck Ideas

Reanimator, but what kind of reanimator? Well, I'd say you definitely want him in a deck that can dump your hand quickly after multiple "draw seven" effects. Other than that, you can go a little wackier if you want and try your hand at a Laboratory Maniac Deck? Or would that be too goofy?
