Featured in the "Boros Battalion" intro pack, Bomber Corps is one of the newest red cards from Wizards of the Coast's latest expert "Magic: The Gathering" expansion set "Gatecrash" and an all-star in limited Boros decks.
Bomber Corps - 1R
Creature - Human Soldier (Common)
Battalion - Whenever Bomber Corps and at least two other creatures attack, Bomber Corps deals 1 damage to target creature or player.
"Subtlety is for lawmages and spies."
There's a whopping 29 creatures in "Gatecrash" with a toughness of one. Setting aside Spark Trooper (which you won't be able to target) and High Priest of Penance (which you may not want to destroy), there's still 27 potential threats for Bomber Corps to take out - making it an MVP in "Gatecrash" limited.
Bomber Corps can be devastating in a Boros mirror match. Many of the deck's key creature have a toughness of one. Getting rid of an opponent's Firefist Striker or Boros Elite can be a deciding factor, helping to prevent them from ever taking advantage of their Battalion creatures.
Many of the Evolve creatures like Cloudfin Raptor, Experiment One, and Fathom Mage all begin with a toughness of one. An active Bomber Corpse will put your opponent in the position of having to play multiple creatures a turn so that you can't destroy their creatures when you attack.
Even if your opponent doesn't have a creature with toughness of one Bomber Corps can prevent them from blocking or just help inflict that extra bit of damage that puts the game in your favor.
