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.
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
In limited, it will more than mess up your
opponent's strategies. Take it, and take it high
if you are a blue mage.
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.
This guy is the
king of good peoples. Lets review shall

capabilities. Throw in flying. That alone

makes for good control. Slows down goblins,
and all other aggro decks. I honestly think
this guy could have his day in the sun.
