This Week's Card Selector

Quite the strong permanent, if you don't have something stronger in play. Right now, blue has so many good finishers, that this will always be overshadowed. Still, I think this is a pretty good card. The fact that its toughness is greater than 4 helps too.
 
In limited, this is very strong. typically the best thing when it comes out, and you'll lose a minor creature or land. Play it if you've got it and are playing blue.
 
Constructed: 3
Limited: 4

This guy is a beatstick...period. In Limited he can be a game winner and his drawback usually amounts to not much. He is good enough to see constructed play but I really haven't seen the right deck for him just yet. He should be a high draft pick and is a gift from heaven in sealed.

Limited- 4.5

In constructed, I think you'll find some people will use this as a control finisher in OBC.  Maybe, maybe not.

In limited, this card finishes people all the time.  3/6 unblockable is hard to deal with, especially when it hits fast.

Constructed - 3
Limited - 4.5
Current Price - $.95

I beat down with this guy more than once in the last team qualifier. He's
uber hard to deal with, especially if he's your 1st non land play. He can be
more of a detriment if you draw him in the late game when you have quality
permanents to bury.

Limited: 3
Constructed: 1

Limited *****
Constructed ***

There are many forms of evasion, but not many of them are perfect.  Wormfang Crab has the ultimate form of evasion and can come down very quickly.  Not only does swinging for 3 every turn generate a serious clock, Wurmfang Crab is VERY difficult to remove thanks to it's big fat ass.  I consider this a bomb in Limited.

This guy could easily be the next control deck 'kill' mechanism.  Its very
difficult to kill, can't be blocked, and when you're only playing these guys
and land, chances are the drawback won't be much of one.  Always playable, a
3.5 in Limited, a 4 in Constructed.  Too bad this card is way outdone by
other kill cards like Psychatog.
