Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
Basically it's a 5/5 flier for 5.
I think this is a kill card. Hard to target
kill, and blue can counter the mass stuff.
Very little takes it down. In constructed,
if the environment slows down any, expect blue
decks to run this as a kill.
limited, it ends games. There is just about
nothing an opponent can do in limited - you just

think this 5/5 protectable dragon will find it's
place in a deck in the new Type 2 environment.
It's ability to Morph and start attacking on
turn 5 certainly doesn't hurt anything, either.
"SURPRISE!... I'm big, I'm blue, I fly, and my
destination airport is your DOME...." Not bad at
In Limited, where
removal can be few and far between, it's even
nastier. If they don't have an immediate answer
to this creature, when you're tapped out, it's
pretty much over. Definitely either a first pick
early, or a late D-draft if necessary (this is
one creature you do NOT want to see your
opponent play against you!)
Constructed - 3.5
Limited - 4.5

Silver Wyvern, reprinted with morph. For those
of you playing back then, do you remember it
seeing play back then? No? Quicksilver Dragon
will see about as much play.
It costs 6, and does
very little to help you win, as either you are
dead when you cast it, or it gets
however, it's a large flier. Blue is so weak,
though, that you probably won't have enough to

This guy will see play for many reasons.
He's a big
blue flyer with high P/T. He's difficult to kill.
fun to use (Opponent says "target your face down

creatures). The cards also has really cool
4 in constructed.
He's a bomb in limited pure and simple. Also, you
splash him. However, I don't think quicksilver
is better than exalted angel so I'll give the
4.5 in limited (just like the angel).
This is another one of those cards that can
do well only in limited.
It's poor at best in constructed. There are simply
better blue cards to
play. In limited, though, I think this is a good
closer. You need to have a
couple strong creatures, and this isn't a bad one.
This is probably the worst of the 5 "X/X"er's.
Since wizards are slower to get out, and much
weaker. Chance are this thing will be at best a
3/3. Mistforms are about the only way to make him
get big. The morph is kinda not much of a sneak
attack, since most people land up playing someone
one game, only having 3 morph creatures and your
opponent seeing what they are. So next game the
surprise value is gone. Also chances are its not
much of a surprise. In constructed this thing is
In draft this could only see play if you
hounded all the picks on wizards. Which probably
means your creature base is weak. Unless you got
alot of flyers, or things to back them up in
another color, this isn't worth playing. Most
likely in a draft this goes around till 15th pick.
And in sealed this is laughable. The prbability of
alot of playable wizards in sealed just doesn't
happen, unless you have 10+ and amazing things to
back them up.
