What do you guys think? Can be a real pain in the ass for almost every other EDH deck out there?

I guess it should work 'til everybody in the room knows that Gaddock Teeg is your general. And this will be exactly 10 seconds after he hits the table. Sure he's a good cards, with "GW-T2-Meddling Mage" written all over it, but it won't work for long. With him as general your deck is automatically a Mid-range-Aggrodeck, with two colors, which means you lose time for every round to you have to search for the right mana you need to fuel your engine.

General Isamaru, Hound of Konda for mono-white sounds much better.

He certainly appears to be a pain, but he can still be targetted by all kinds of cheap removal. Standard is full of them. Terror, Sudden Death, even Pongify.

But when you play EDH, the field is much much wider for removal - and waaay more creative ways to dispatch this threat. Terminate, Swat, Last Breath, Smother, list goes on an on.

I wouldn't worry too much.

Yeah, I wouldn't worry too much...if he's in play, everyone is bringing out creatures sort of with immunity, so...the Red Zone ftw!

It shuts down your color's best multiplayer card, Wrath of God.


Brion Strongarm seems more appealing for EDH purposes.

Everyone please be more careful about Spoilers in this forum... officially leaked or not. Until prelrelease day, any posts containing information about a future card should clearly be marked *SPOILER* in the subject.
