Wizard Replica is a nice early threat for blue, slowing down quick-playing decks to a more manageable pace so blue has more time to set up. While I don't imagine it being played much in constructed, it's not horrible in limited where it works as a slow-down mechanism and it serves to block a lot of the com/unc flyers in Mirrodin. A later pick.

Constructed: 2
Limited: 3.25
Current Price:
$0.25

 Wednesday - Wizard Replica

A neat trick, and spot on for blue. a 1/3 flier (I though white was supposed to be the best flying color? Anyways...) with the ability to be a counterspell in the right situations. The activation cost is the best of the replicas too: only the blue mana. And as this is an ability, only Stifle (and cards like Stifle) can stop it. Probably the best Replica for constructed play, but that's not saying much when you look at the other replicas.

In limited, it will more than mess up your opponent's strategies. Take it, and take it high if you are a blue mage.

Constructed: 2.75
Limited: 4.75

 Wizard Replica

An underappreciated card in draft. This card is a well rounded colorless flyer and the mini-mana-leak is a good ability that can really plague your opponent. A solid limited creature that can also block most all other flyers with ease.

In constructed this is non-existant.

Constructed: 1
Limited: 3

This guy is the king of good peoples.  Lets review shall we?  1/3 for three.  Good defensive capabilities.  Throw in flying.  That alone makes this card a bomb in my opinon.  Then add his ability, which at the very least makes your opponent play his bomb that one turn slower, assuming of course he doesnt forget abou tthis guy, and it all equals to this guy is good peoples.
 
Limited, good stuff all round.  He is a creature with evasion.  TAKE/PLAY him. 
 
Constructed, He makes for good control.  Slows down goblins, and all other aggro decks.  I honestly think this guy could have his day in the sun.
 
Constructed rating - 3
Limited rating - 4
Flying magical counterspelling machine rating - 10
