Master 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.

Constructed: 3.25
Limited: 3.75
Current Price:
$14.95

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.
 
Constructed: 1.25

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.

Constructed - 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
a classic.

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
game.

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.

Constructed: 3.0
Limited: 3.8

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
much better.
constructed - 2.5
limited - 3.4
