RCotD #121

Random Card of the Day #121:

Veguild - B
Creature - Horror
Vebulid enters the battlefield with a +1/+1 counter on it.
At the beginning of your upkeep, you may put a +1/+1 counter on Vebulid.
When Vebulid attacks or blocks, destroy it at end of combat.

Initial thoughts:

It reminds me of Primal Cocoon, but somewhat worse since instead of the enchantment being destroyed, the creature is.

Of course it is just destroy effects so you can abuse it with Indestructibility but instead of splashing White you should probably use Darksteel Plate. But even still, it would just be a cheaper costed Predator Ooze.

Even if you got this turn one, most games last 5-8 turns, so you might get a 9/9 to swing once. Without trample. It's not exactly a good card, but it basically cries out to be able to be regenerated or become indestructible. Definitely a kind of combo-aggro card. Not exactly the most popular archetype but I could see a few people using this card in a deck if it was ever re-printed. 3/5 if you can get it to work right.
