Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
of the Hunt is another token maker for the week.
It's downfall is that it's a creature and more
easily dealt with than enchantments that produce
tokens. It's up is that if you have lots of mana,
you can make multiple creatures a turn. Another
down is it's cost... wth is up with that?
It's because it's an old Legends card that is
difficult to find and low stocked. Ah well.
In limited, it would
be a nice card since the ability to add creatures
over and over can give you a huge advantage.
Though I really can't imagine too many people
playing a Legends draft.
Finally, a totally
random card to end the week. A 2/2 that produces
1/1s. Unfortunately, you can pay 1 more, and
have an enchantment instead, which typically has
less solutions in your opponent's deck. Fun, but
not very useful.
I won't even try to
rate it in limited, since I never played that
format, and probably never will.
Master of the Hunt is
just weak for Green. 4 mana for a 1/1 just isn't a
trade-off I want to make, not even for banding.
Expensive and relatively weak - 2.25
Limited - Chump
blockers count for something - 2.50

Lol, I haven't seen this card in such a long time.
One of the first creature
producers in the game, and about as dated as it
sounds. Currently there are
better choices such as Centaur Glade or Voice of
the Woods, but this guy's
The funniest part of the card is that the wolves
have banding... I bet you
$100 that if you put up a poll asking kids on the
site what banding does,
they wouldn't have a clue. Its a nice bonus, but
not really all that amazing
since it costs 4 mana to make yourself a pretty
puny 1/1 creature that
bands. even if you were able to produce one per
turn, thats a lot of mana
being tied up for a creature that will do little
to nothing to win you the
Also, Master of the hunt is a creature himself.
Unlike Centaur Glade, or
Kjeldorn Outpost, one swift burn to his head as
small as a shock ruins all
your fun. I just don't see this guy being worth
while when there are many
more suitable options available.
Limited.... Well, he IS a creature creator, so I
have to give him higher
marks....but that doesn't mean I would personally
pick him out.

I liked this guy a lot, especially in big group
games, you could construct
huge ball-o'-hounds to send at people, or use as
very efficient ground
defense. And since the ability doesn't tap to
use, you can pump out lots of
guys every turn. Today though, he'd see a bit
less play, although he'd
still be quite good in limited, for similar
reasons. Mobilization tokens
are good... give them banding (even with just each
other) and they're that
constructed - 2.5
limited - 3.4
