enchantment that's almost... acceptable? A 3/3 for
3 is above average for Green, and while you're
waiting for it a creature you own gets +3/+3. As
an enchantment, this paints a 'Don't you dare kill
me' sticker on your more useful monsters.
In constructed, the sign
instead reads 'Please bounce me' against Blue. The
card could really be good in limited however,
where combat tricks are always appreciated.

Rancor in it's power, but not quite do to the

In constructed, it will see
play, but not to the extended it could, and most
likely should. At 3 mana, it's not effiecent
enough to make it in any deck, and with blue

having numerous possibilities in extended.
In limited, this card is

Judgment. This is a card that if your color is
green, or one of them is, is a first pick much of
the time. There are some creatures in draft, such
as Genesis or Glory, that you take over this
without questions, but there aren't many. In

this card will see some play. The amount of
available bounce keeps this card from being
ridiculous but it is still solid in a heavy
green deck. Throw it on a trampler and it
becomes a must deal with quickly creature. This
card is really fine in limited where bounce and
instant speed removal are at a premium.
