It's a rare Rare that is rarely worth its price. Krark's Thumb is one of them. Okay, so that's really not so true... there are a lot of rares not worth the price of admission.

But, if you like a challenge, this could be a fun card to build a deck around. It won't be competitive, but I think it would be fun as hell to play. Or frustrating as hell...one of the two.

Uh, we won't even mention limited here.

Constructed: 1.5
Limited: 1

This card lets you choose 1 of 2 coins to keep. In the right deck, this can give you a much higher chance of winning a flip, or at least having the effect you want. However, they don't print any good coin flip cards any more, as it has been deemed too "luck driven." Anyone who has played since the Mirage block knows why - the one good coin flip card was in that block.
 
Again, in limited, you don't have enough of a focus for this to be any good.
 
(Now, if I could only use something like this to fix the fact I'll find a parking space at the mall this week...)
 
Constructed: 2
Limited: 1

 Krark's Thumb

It's a coin flip card that lets you get more flips on useless cards that you shouldn’t playing. Only get this card if you're trying to make a set.

In Limited..... *@#$^!!!!!!

Constructed: 1 (wouldn't you just love to pull this as your rare?)

Limited: 1

Krark’s Thumb

 

I love Krark’s Thumb. Yes it is a love affair. This card was one of the first cards I traded for on Magic Online. When you get tired of playing all those competitive net decks, this is the card for you. Build a deck for fun with Krark’s Thumb. Cards like this are the reason I still enjoy magic. It has little value in draft considering it only really works well with Fiery Gambit. In standard it only really shows off what it can do in a Mana clash, fiery gambit style of deck. It does have one of the most fun quotes out of the set. Not the best card ever made, but it reminds you that magic is fun.

 

Constructed 2

Limited 1
