Murasa Brute – More Than Meets the Immediate Eye
Is Murasa Brute “just” a 3/3 vanilla for three mana? With no rules text?
Patrick argues that that doesn’t just cover what’s really going on with this card… There is actually some hidden rules text!
First off, Murasa Brute is a little bit better than onetime tournament Role Player Gnarled Mass (a card Mike was once famous for advocating). But unlike Gnarled Mass at 1GG… Murasa Brute is a little less restrictive to cast.
But besides that, it’s also a Troll Warrior.
With Zendikar Rising, being a Warrior can help you out in building your Party. So you might just have a little more incentive to consider a creature like this one.
Now that said…
Tajuru Paragon can Help You Fill Your Party
Tajuru Paragon is a three power creature for only two mana. A 3/2 for two (with a lot of potential types), this card has a heck of a fail state.
It can help get your beat on early… While filling any slot in your Party. In addition, a late game Paragon can dig up other Clerics, Rogues, Warriors… Or Wizards.
What about nabbing a Fae of Wishes or Gadwick, the Wizened?
Snowballing card advantage is quite a possibility!
Maybe he’s friends with Red Decks; enabling Wizard’s Lightning or buddying up with a Rogue like Robber of the Rich.
