Now for the review ;-]
 
 
Cost to Mana Ratio: Four for 2000.  Let's just say I've seen better. xp
 
 
Type/Civilization: Both are good here especially Beast Folk...but then again if Beast Folk is already good then it will take a good card to make it better..(you're probably lost. :D  So I'm saying that if Beast Folk is already good then it needs something that makes it better, which means the card would have to be great...If you're still lost, I'm sorry :p)
 
 
Effect: Okay..If you have played any other TCG you know that hand advantage makes the duel easier for you to win.  This card completely depletes your hand advantage.  You could use this in combo with Thrash Crawler, but that would be just two cards and it isn't that great, plus why even do the combo when you can just play the card from your hand and you won't have to go through all the trouble for nothing xD.  
 
 
Rating: Constructed :1.5/5 Because I'm generous :p
Limited: 1/5 Even worse here since hand advantage is even more necessary.
Art: 3.5/5 Kind of looks like something out of Halo...
 
Overall: 1.25
 
Well that is it.  Want to comment you can e-mail me or Instant Message me on MSN at danieljs@bellsouth.net That is all for now.  Good luck and happy dueling.

Tangle Fist, the Weaver

Type: Creature
Civilization: Nature
Race: Beast Folk
Mana Cost: Four (4)

Rules Text:
Instead of having this creature attack, you may tap it to use this ability:
Put up to three cards from your hand into your mana zone.

Flavor Text:

Power: 2,000

Rarity: Rare

Set: Thundercharge of Ultra Destruction


Power/Cost: Four mana is neither too expensive nor too cheap for Tangle Fist. It’s a good slot because Nature doesn’t have many solid four-cost creatures (though that may be because BAT lets you skip turn four). His 2k attack is unfortunately the downside. Tangle Fist will not escape any of the commonly played kill spells, and his power can only kill other weenies.

Civilization/Race: Surprise, surprise, it’s another Nature card that produces mana! This makes a total of about 20 Nature cards capable of accelerating your mana count (though not all of them are good at it). This guy also fits into the omnipotent Beastfolk line. There are now thirteen different Beastfolk as well as two great evolutions.

Effects: Notice that his ability specifically states that you may place up to three cards into the mana zone. Going for all three really hurts hand advantage, and one isn’t worth the trouble, so gaining two mana seems like the best option most of the time. Now Water and Nature have a knack for working well together as many of you already know. Tangle Fist is no exception. Water can provide the cards to fuel his ability, as well as providing the cards to cast with all that mana you’ve accumulated. Just be careful of not becoming too overzealous with Tangle Fist by sending your entire hand to the mana zone.

Limited: 2.5/5

Tangle Fist is okay here mainly because he can supply a decent body. You probably will not use his effect very often in the draft format.

Constructed: 3/5

Tangle Fist is more useful in Constructed because you can reap the full benefits of his tap ability. A Combination of Nature/Water would be most effective. Overall an average card with potential to be abused.

Well, we are reviewing weird cards from thundercharge this week.  I really don't know what to think about this card.  I tried playtesting it and it worked okay.  You REALLY lose hand advantage though.  If you use this at all use it in blue / green.  At least have those 2 civs.  This card may come out before bliss totem but, it is not as good and certainly doesn't deserve to be rarer than bliss.  Is there some combo with this card I just haven't figured out?  I don't think so but, I might be wrong.  Anyway, its cost to power ratio is alright.  So is being a beast folk.  Here are the scores:
 
 
Constructed (blue / green): 3/5 -3 cards is still bad.
Limited:  1/5 Draining your entire hand is very bad.
