Bllodlord of Vaasgoth is one of the newest cards to be revealed from Wizards of the Coast’s upcoming Magic: the Gathering Magic 2012 Core Set M12.
Bloodlord of Vaasgoth – 3BB
Creature – Vampire Warrior (Mythic Rare)
Bloodthirst 3 (If an opponent was dealt damage this turn, this creature enters the battlefield with three +1/+1 counters on it.)
Whenever you cast a Vampire creature spell, it gains bloodthirst 3.
M12’s Bloodlord of Vaasgoth’s ability highlights the existence of a Vampire theme in the Magic 2012 Core Set.
Provided you’ve damaged your opponent earlier in the turn, Bloodlord of Vaasgoth is a 6/6 creature, who super charges your other vampires. Child Of Night now becomes a 5/4 lifelink creature to reckon with! Even Barony Vampire will be a monstrous threat.
An important thing to note about M12’s Bloodlord of Vaasgoth is that Bloodthirst stacks. That means if you play a vampire with Bloodthirst of two, it will actually have Bloodthirst of five. Likewise, with two Bloodlord of Vaasgoth in play all of your Vampires will automatically start with Bloodthirst six.
Several fantastic vampires to include alongside Bloodlord of Vaasgoth are Blood Ghast, Ruthless Cullblade, and Vampire Nighthawk.
By splashing red you’ll gain access to burn spells like Galvanic Blast, Lightning Bolt and Arc Trail to enusre that you take full advantage of your Vampire’s Bloodthirst.
How will you abuse M12’s Bloodlord of Vaasgoth?
Featured as the Magic 2012 Prerelease promo card, you’ll also be able to find Bloodlord of Vaasgoth in booster packs of the Magic 2012 Core Set when it goes on sale July 15th, 2011.
