Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
bit expensive, but pretty decent for what it
does. Especially if you can play it with a
lot of Bird Soldiers (and yes, there are a LOT of
them) they all get +2/+2. Get 2 of these in
play, and they are both 5/7s. If this type
of deck really is playable, then he'll be the man
to fuel it. Played with Shared Triumph and
maybe even Glorious Anthem or Divine Sacrament,
you might see a somewhat nastly Bird Soldier deck,
if they can survive the first few turns.
limited, it's a 3/5 flier that pumps probably a
lot of your stuff. Exceptional.
A card that pumps
both birds and soldiers. Unfortunately, it costs
6 mana, and as such, will probably not see a lot
of play, as it is not worth the 6 mana you are
spending, at least in constructed.
In limited, however,
this is a 3/5 flier for 6. Big fliers are always
good. You just have to worry about giving the
bonus to your opponent's creatures, and so, I
would probably not play it if my opponent was
playing white or blue. Great otherwise, though.
In the new, slower upcoming format this guy is
somewhat playable even with his 3WWW casting
cost. Straight up a 3/5 flyer at that price
would be a bad deal but his bonuses for birds
and soldiers, the predominant white creature
types is a large enough ability to merit
consideration in white creature decks. In
limited he is also at the outer limit of casting
costs but probably makes the cut.
Firstly, I'll never be convinced that birds are
to make a good deck type. They're either to weak
too expensive. Soldiers on the other hand may
there are some good soldier cards in the set
(whipcorder, mobilize). That being said, I
want to pay for the "bird bonus" just to
"soldier bonus", especially when the
bonus also works
for your opponent. Yes, a 3/5 flyer is kinda meaty
its too much for 6 mana. A 2 in constructed.
Conversely, this guy is a brick in limited. Very
difficult to kill with burn. Flying makes him
difficult to block. WWW in the mana cost may cause
some people a few mana problems not too many. A 4
