Conflux Spoiler 20

Late yesterday, we have word of two very intriguing Shards of Alara Conflux creatures which we will spoil now. For a great write up on these critters, read what Mr. ForestHowl has to say over at the Planeswalker Writes blog .

Progenitus - WWUUBBRRGG
Legendary Creature - Hydra, Mythic Rare
Protection from everything (This creature can't be blocked, targeted, equipped, enchanted, or dealt damage.)
When Progenitus is put into a graveyard from anywhere, shuffle it into its owner's library.

Right. Protection from EVERYTHING. Did you happen to see the mana-cost ? This is what a Mythic Rare should be.

So Progenitus - this is one of those crazy cool cards which will be pretty much unplayable in all but very few specific decks. You will first need to be able to feed a rainbow of mana to get it out on the board or be able to 'cheat' it into play via the graveyard or with something like Dramatic Entrance, Deathrender, or a Hideaway Land. The Timmy in us will want to build a deck around it and start stomping, the Johnny in us wants to abuse this card sooo badly - - I'll be reading reviews and watching builds of players more advanced than I to see just how far this card can go.

Apocalypse Hydra, XRG
Creature - Hydra, Rare
Apocalypse Hydra comes into play with X +1/+1 counters on it. If X is 5 or more, it comes into play with X additional +1/+1 counters on it.
1{R}, Remove a +1/+1 counter from Apocalypse Hydra: Apocalypse Hydra deals 1 damage to target creature or player.

This is the nasty guy that eats Bant Knights and Angels as we have seen from all the WoTC promo material. This may be a nice ping for your game but I'm certain there are more economically effecient ones out there already. I would simply have seven to drop on this and use it as a beat stick.
