Garv


Show me a player who undervalues garv, and I'll show you one misinformed chaotic player! Ever since he came out all the way back in the Dawn of Perim block, he's been a force to be reckoned with. This card is a bit of nostalgia since one of the very first blog posts was talking about a nifty card combo of Garv and Orb of Foresight.

Flipping battlegear is a HUGE ability. This one creature can nullify a heptadd's crown, get rid of a Weightless Energy Vessel, let you reuse a destructazooka, or let you use any battlegear of a creature who hasn't seen combat yet. I know that I've made several decks with this creature, including the deck I played at worlds.

What do you guys think of garv?

I like Garv. He's a funny hippo. Like you said, his ability is pretty powerful, and if the player can devise a way to continually fuel him with counters (which wouldn't even always be necessary, but a nice little benefit) you can control the game quite a bit. Not only that, but he even has a good bit of Energy and Wisdom so he wouldn't be that bad a creature in battle. Overall a really cool creature.

***½/5

Garv's cool. There are many strategies to use him in, especially the Bodal FDR decks. The only disadvantage is that he only has 2MC's, but have Dibanni on your team and he's a BEAST. Overall I rate Garv a decent 4/10, I would have done it 4.5/10, but I hate this guy messing with my decks that I so value to have BG in...

If I can find a way to get him into infinite mc I'll use him, but he is very useful against burn decks
