RCotD #186

Random Card of the Day #186:

Rukh Egg - 3R
Creature - Bird
When Rukh Egg dies, put a 4/4 red Bird creature token with flying onto the battlefield at the beginning of the next end step.

Initial Thoughts:

Card #2 I missed. I would be asking Lolzor to do some of these, but I feel he would be too busy playing Diablo 3 to even be bothered.

As for this card, the first card I think of (and you probably do too) is Roc Egg. Hell they are even pronounced similarly. From the times that I have played with Roc Egg, I can say that it is very hard to get it to die. No, really. Your opponent can easily see it coming and wont swing into it unless they have a transformed Ludevic's Abomination or something similar. It doesn't have flying and for a four-cost defender it's pretty bad. Even Roc Egg is lacking.

In limited Roc Egg is pretty good, but it's still somewhat difficult to trigger, and it takes an uncommon slot. If I opened a sealed and got this card as one of my rares, I would be pretty mad. Good news though, it doesn't have defender. Which means equipment makes it somewhat useful.

Limited: 3/5
Constructed: 2/5
