This Week's Card Selector

limited ****
constructed ****

Flying is one of the oldest and best forms of evasion in Magic.  Giving all your creatures flying in Limited is seriously powerful and can make a normally pathetic army look fierce in a hurry.  Even if you can't get Wonder into the grave it's still a 2/2 flier for 3U which all by itself is pretty good.

You can pretty much say the same good things about Wonder in constructed formats... except in constructed you won't have to worry about playing with sub-par creatures!!

Would Levitation be played if it could be cast for free and occasionally attack for 2 damage? Somehow I'm guessing it wouldn't be, but here we have another example of how good bad cards can be when put in the Odyssey block. Make no joke about it, though, this card can be a killer. If you are running a creature based deck in OBC, you better be able to deal with Wonder (while its in the graveyard, that is). 

In Limited, this guy is quite good. Evasion often breaks games wide open and this guy gives all your creatures evasion. While not a first pick, this should go in the first 4.

Constructed: 3 (4 in OBC)

Limited: 4.5

On 1st glance this card appears to be just another 2/2 flyer for 3U and then you read the text and Wow. Although I think the incarnations mechanic is a bad thing for the game this card's graveyard ability makes it incredibly good. The game is really screwed up when putting a card in the yard becomes a road to victory. But since we have to live with another dumb concept from R&D we might as well use it especially when it makes all your 1 and 2 drops have flying on a more or less permanent basis.

A component in the Quiet Roar deck. This card allows your Wurms and other creatures to fly over potential blockers. Nice to have, but I have found it is not absolutely necessary.

In limited, the ability to give you creatures flying helps to end games quickly. Even if you can't get it in your graveyard, a 2/2 flier for 4 isn't that bad.

Constructed: 3
Limited: 4.5

This card is all around good.  Good in limited, good in constructed.

It's an ok creature on its own, but wihen it's in the graveyard...well it's all good.

When this guy gets rollin..."Business is about to pick up!"

Constructed: 4.0
Limited: 4.4

Wonder is an incredible card. There is nothing worse for your opponent than a flying 6/6 Wurm on turn 4. Wonder can easily house any deck in Type II or Block right now, with only a select few cards being able to do anything about it. A 4 in constructed.

In limited, flying is a major commodity. A flying creature automatically gets brownie points for evasion, no matter how crappy it is (Might not change where it gets picked.) How about you give all those fatties on the ground flying? Wonder easily can change tides in draft, and win games as well. A 4.5 in limited.
