For the past several years, Wizards of the Coast has sent each brick and mortar store that runs Magic: the Gathering tournaments a special Christmas card - a unique, silver bordered Magic: the Gathering card not legal in tournament play. 2009's Holiday Magic: the Gathering card was Season's Beatings, and last year's was Snow Mercy. For 2011, store owners will receive a special foil Yule Ooze.
Yule Ooze - 2RG
Creature - Ooze (Promo Rare)
At the beginning of your upkeep, destroy another nonland permanent chosen at random, then put a number of +1/+1 counters on Yule Ooze equal to that permanent's converted mana cost.
RG, Eat some food: Regenerate Yule Ooze.
It loves having family for dinner.
The key to making Yule Ooze into an unstoppable blob of epic proportions is to keep mana untapped and have a readily supply of snacks.
Some delicious candy that you can eat in order to help Yule Ooze regenerate include Skittles, M&Ms, Nerds, and Pez - all can be eaten in small single unit portions.
For those who may be on a diet or have diabetes, baby carrots, apple slices, raisins, and grapes make tasty alternatives.
Whatever your personal food preferences may be, expect to pay or trade a premium for Yule Ooze. With only one copy sent to each store, the 2011 Holiday Magic: the Gathering Yule Ooze will no doubt become a collector's item.
Several other promotional Magic: the Gathering cards include Flusterstorm, Xiahou Dun, Force of Will, Dark Confidant, Mana Crypt, Wild Nacatl, Sinkhole, Sword of Fire and Ice, Maelstrom Pulse, and Ajani Goldmane.
