Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
Monday - Elf
This week we talk about the Replicas, 3 casting
cost artifacts from Mirrodin, with an ability
for 1-4 mana (one colored).
Today, we have the green replica, which you can
sacrifice to destroy an enchantment. This seems
to be a neat trick, giving you a body with the
flexibility to destroy an enchamntment, but its
not effecient enough. I would rather have
Naturalize, myself, to deal with the artifacts
as well as enchantments. Enchantments seem to be
a lesser problem compared to artifacts these
In limited, however, this works quite good, as
stuff like Arresttends to clog down your side of
the board. If I were green, I'd probably put
this in, and look to get at least one in the
In limited, it's a morph with an ability.
Terribly overpowered in Onslaught block, nothing
worth mentioning in Mirrodin. Funny how the
world works in mysterious ways. In a draft, you
would wanna pick this low, as it's ability is
near useless. (Arrest is the only enchantment
you need to ever worry about in Mirrodin
limited) in normal limited, you run it because
it is a creature, and it is a very creature
Constructed, he could be more useful. Onslaught
block had a lot of enchanments that needed to be
rid of, not to mention 8th edition. Worship,
Form of the Dragon, Oversold Cemetry, Risky
Move...*shifty eyes*... Anyway, I would use this
in any green deck, not just elves as I have
heard it suggested, because it can bring
enchantment removal to black and red decks. I
like him as a sideboard option in B/G cemetry,
because it recurs your enchantment removal.
Constructed rating - 2.5 (Sideboarded of course)
Limited rating - 1.5
Tree hugging hippy machine rating - 5
Ahhh my first COTD.
Today is Elf Replica. A Mirrodin common.
Pros: Hes an Artifact, he can go in any deck.
He can destroy an enchantment for 2 mana
Cons: 3 mana to bring in.
Overall, this card is not that bad. In
constructed, stay away from him cause ther is a
lot more posssibilites.
In limited, I would probably use him.
In Casual, You can try an use him in a artifact
End review here
A morph in limited that can only solve some
things like arrest. Its usualy just a morph,
In constructed its seen some sideboards... but
thats about it.
