guys. I’m back with yet another exciting
card review. Today’s card is not one of my
favorites in the set, but like all cards, he
can be used in certain situations (not that
I have found any of these yet).
– Stomp-A-Trons of Invincible Wrath
– Armored Wyvern
Speed attacker (This creature doesn't get
creature can't attack players.
the end of your turn, return this creature
to your hand.
– There is no flavor text on this card, so
I’ll make some up!
Our enemies won’t get far with this kind of
Civilization and Race
all the Card of the Days from this week,
Cutthroat Skyterror belongs to the Fire
civilization. This card falls into the
Armored Wyvern race next to the ever-popular
Twin-Cannon Skyterror. Armored Wyverns
haven’t been very popular to play (other
than Twin-Cannon Skyterror of course)… and
they still aren’t.
Power and Cost
Power to cost, this guy is pretty good. A 3
mana 5000 attacker. So you’ll have a 5000
attacker on the third turn. This can take
out most used blockers and harassers such as
Horrid Worm and Skullsweeper Q. Now if you
look at this card like that, you’ll think
“Whoa! That is awesome!” And then you look
at its effect…
first ability: Speed Attacker. Not a bad
start. That means you’ll be able to attack
right when you summon it on turn 3.
second ability: This creature can’t attack
players. I know, I know. This isn’t really
an ability. This is where his only downfall
is. Not being able to attack players pretty
much ruins his stats. If you are trying to
play speed attackers on turn 3, you are
running rush, and most likely trying to hit
third ability: At the end of your turn,
return this creature to your hand. A better
ability. This protects this guy from be
hammered by a stronger creature. I
personally love cards returning to my hand
because 1. I like to protect them and 2.
They can be used as mana next turn if need
and Decktypes to Go In
have only found one use for Cutthroat
Skyterror… mana. Honestly, I haven’t found
any type of deck to fit this into well. Sure
it can go into a red black creature kill
deck, but I still see no point there. If it
is a creature kill deck, your opponent
shouldn’t get the chance to have their
creature tapped. So Cutthroat would never
get a shot off anyways.
To Use Instead
you are running a rush deck, run the
annoying Pyrofighter Magnus. If you are
running a creature kill deck, run Bazagazeal
Dragon (one of my personal favorites from
3/5 – In this playing format, rush is very
popular for this set. Therefore, this is a
decent card to stop that. I’d run blockers
over this guy though.
1/5 – Like I said… Cutthroat Skyterror
doesn’t fit into many decks. He is very
close to useless unless you are either
facing a rush deck or are running a creature
kill deck (which he still usually goes to
is plain and simple guys… Cutthroat
Skyterror just doesn’t cut it (That is what
is called a pun boys and girls. Sorry, we
are studying Romeo and Juliet and… yea, you
get the point).
