Without a planeswalker to fetch, this is almost unplayable (you can do so much better than a 5-mana 4/3 these days). Let’s take a look at the grading scale, with the usual caveat that what I write about the card is more relevant, as there are many factors that aren’t reflected in a card’s grade. In a beatdown deck, this just makes blocking impossible, as you can play this on turn 4 and exert another attacker, then attack and exert this next turn.

This combines well with pump spells and fight effects, and is a passable 5-drop for decks that lack them. This is on the low end for tricks, but giving it cycling goes a long way. Every Zombie offering at least 5 points of evasive damage is no joke, and I suspect this will finish many games that looked unwinnable for the Zombie deck. FOILS ONLY! There’s a saying about not looking a gift horse in the mouth that applies here, as this is solid + upside more than a strict build-around. It’s a fine card, but you will often be able to do better. When you combine two medium effects, you get a pretty good card.

(Renegade’s Getaway. (Dawnfeather Eagle. This is largely worse than Hekma Sentinels, and despite the number of them I drafted, isn’t a card I’ll defend to death. Other complicated black cards.). I suspect Angel will be about the same, with a slightly worse cycling cost but much better power and toughness. There are some decks where this will be great, no doubt, but I don’t like this level of variance in my 6-mana cards. I’m in for the -1/-1 counters part, and the rest is just a bonus. A 2/1 flyer for 3 with upside is something I’m always in for, and the more exert running around the better it gets. Luis is one of the most accomplished players in Magic: the Gathering history. Watchful Automaton.) 2. Thes… The Boneslasher is a good beater, and the rest of the top black commons kill creatures, one way or another. Angel of … You can set this up so you win two combats with it, though that comes with the downside of not being able to save a creature whenever combat gets large enough. Make sure you have fodder, though it’s cute that this works with small crappy creatures and big ones alike. (Ironclad Revolutionary. Cycling ended up being a bit more of a cost than I thought, given Amonkhet’s speed, but Winged Shepherd still was rarely cut. Herald of Anguish. I’d take this early, as a card that’s this efficient is good even if you get to play it a little less than half your matches.

8 mana is steep, and this won’t stabilize the board nearly as well as something like Sandwurm Convergence (which has become my bar for 8-drops). (Renegade Freighter.

Basically, the only time this is really bad is when they have a lot of mana and multiple spells to play, which won’t be often enough to mitigate the times it’s good. (Renegade Freighter.

This promises up to 19, and that just may be good enough. Plus, if they are on the chump block plan, this whacks them for 3 every time, which is pretty sweet too. ChannelFireball - Magic: The Gathering Strategy, Singles, Cards, Decks. Herald of Anguish. Precise Strike.)

5.0: The best of the best.

When you add all that up, I think you have a good card—one that will be a blowout when good, even if it won’t always work out the way you want it to. I was hoping for more of these. 0.0: Completely unplayable.

Retired and inducted into the Limited Hall of Fame: Pack Rat.

Limited: 2.0. This might be a pushover, but it’s still a 3-power flyer. Luis is one of the most accomplished players in Magic: the Gathering history.

He can often be found playing Vintage in between competitions and loves any format where Force of Will is legal. You won’t want an 0/5 Wall all that often, and paying 2 to cycle it is a real cost. Magic: The Gathering Hour of Devastation Black Rare Lord of the Rings Collectable Card Games. 2 mana for +2/+2 is about what I’ve come to expect, so getting two upsides past that does the trick. Even as a strict sideboard card, this is still a high-priority pickup. Winding Constrictor. That’s good enough for me, even if I expect to never see the secondary text happen. I hope the cycling deck has legs, and if so, this is one of the ways that it will manifest. Just from the name alone, I was ready to give this a low grade, but cycling for just B is enough to make me reluctantly play it.

I will offer some pros and cons for these …

This might not be the most efficient card, but I see an 8-mana finisher and am immediately interested. Meanwhile, a name like this kicks enough ass that I was predisposed to give it a high grade, and it delivers. A 1/2 menace that chips away at their hand is pretty sweet by itself, and works really nicely with pump spells or removal. In combat involving just two creatures, giving a permanent +0/+3 is solid, even if it doesn’t help kill anything. Threat activation is here in spades, though an Eternal not having eternalize seems like a flavor punt to me.

Once you have a ‘walker, this becomes great, though you will still probably wheel it. You don’t have to activate it to get value, and it lets you attack without fear.

Scrounging Bandar. Watchful Automaton.) A second big flyer at common gives white some late-game punch, and the 3 life attached makes up for any lack of speed. I liked the 3-mana 2/4 version a lot more. (Bastion Mastodon. White’s best commons are creatures, with two aggressive beaters and a good curve-topper, though I can see passing on Aven of Enduring Hope more often than the first two cards on the list.

Adorned Pouncer. Black has its usual mix of removal spells and mediocre creatures, and I’m not entirely sure how aggressive it will end up. 0.0: Completely unplayable. Something went wrong. Prophetic Prism. Yes, this is a giant fearsome Demon, but it’s also an 8-mana card without lifelink or anything. View cart for details. Other complicated black cards.). Leaving mana up and passing is really hard for the opponent to beat, as you can flicker anything with the first ability and use the second when you don’t, losing use of the Angel for a turn. The Planeswalker decks contain 10 additional cards that are considered to be part of the set (2 mythic planeswalkers, 2 rares, 2 uncommons, 2 commons and 2 common dual taplands). Gets cut about half the time. 2.5: Solid playable that rarely gets cut.
