Wild Devastating Nessian is one of the newest "Born of the Gods" spoilers revealed today Jan. 11, 2014 in a post on and is one of five prerelease cards for the set. This spoiler card showcases an interesting new mechanic, Tribute. Tribute allows one of your opponents to perform an action or else. Either way's a win-win scenario for you.

Wild Devastating Nessian - 4GG
Creature - Hydra (Rare)
Tribute 6 (As this creature enters the battlefield, an opponent of your choice may put 6 +1/+1 counter on it.)
When Wild Devastating Nessian enters the battlefield, if the tribute cost wasn't paid, you may have Wild Devastating Nessian fight another target creature.

Wild Devastating Nessian gives your adversary the option to make Wild Devastating Nessian into a 12/12 creature for just six mana or for you to have it fight and potentially kill one of their threats. Wild Devastating Nessian isn't that effective if your opponent is playing a control deck with very few creatures, essentially being a 6/6 for six.

Many times your enemy may choose to have it grow if they're holding removal, and unfortunately Wild Devastating Nessian doesn't trample. It's against other aggro decks though that Wild Devastating Nessian will shine, especially in limited. One place Wild Devastating Nessian may find in in Gruul sideboards, allowing you to gain the upper hand against weenie or midrange decks. Wild Devastating Nessian could be a great asset to Domri Rade decks, allowing you to kill multiple creatures in one turn.

How will you use Wild Devastating Nessian?
