Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
wonder about this guy in OBC. In the cleric
deck, he could be very annoying. I don't
quite think he'd make the cut.
Solid in limited.
Blocks morph, is real annoying, and with multiple
clerics in play can shut down an attacker or
blocker. Not outstanding, but solid.
This guy is almost
interesting, but not quite. In constructed, you'd
have to have a focused Cleric deck, but I don't
know if he's worth the space. It's freakin' 1am here, and I
just don't want to hurt my brain thinking about it.
In limited, his
only works if you pull a mondo Cleric deck
somehow, or make it to late game. White does have
the potential to do that. It does have the nice advantage of being
able to block early morphers with it's 3 toughness.
A nice cleric.
First, you get a 1/3 for 3. Nice backside to
stop morphs. Next, you can pay 1W, and make them
pay mana equal to the number of Clerics in play
to attack with that creature. This is also
cumulative, so if you target a creature twice,
they have to pay twice that much, etc.
In limited, the
ability gets even better, as you can basically
shut down their Silvos/Rorix/etc.
My favorite dude in draft. Pass it to me and I'll
gobble it up. Too
mana-intensive for constructed though.
limited - 3.5
constructed - 2.8
Whipgrass Entangler is
interesting. It helps a lot that the card has
consistency it is defensive, has a decent
toughness, and combines well with Clerics who are
generally able to keep themselves alive. A little
slow for overall but an interesting pick.
Constructed May be
playable against the new storm of WW, Sligh, and
the Wurm decks but only in Cleric decks that
havent seemed to take off 2.35
Limited Everyone has
a lot of mana and a lot of creatures and the
number of Clerics in your deck is probably low,
though not too bad nowadays. Basically, his
ability is weakened in this format where all the
creature battles would make it most useful. In
some ways the issues become a wash, almost 2.15
PEZ Clerics are
playable here and there are a lot of creatures
decks so this guy will probably make the cut
I like this guy's effect, even tho you can't use
it until turn 4 I still
think he's pretty cool. Granted I would take the
white muse over him any day
of the week but I still consider his effect....
neat. In limited he coul;d
save you and force your opponent to wate a removal
speel on him and if they
don't have one he could keep your opponent from
attacking for a while.
I know IQ keeps
threatening me that he'll pair this with the
Windborn Muse to get a soft lock against his
opponents creatures. It has potential but I don't
know if it will be fast enough. Whipgrass
Entangler just doesn't look like he can win the
card slots from the actual tappers who are in the
environment, but if you need to slow down a whole
army it just might be what you're looking for.
Limited: This guy
is amazing early game and horribly annoying for
your opponent's late game. Many pros think this
is the best common from Legions, I haven't found
many who disagree.
This guy is good times. The power and toughness
on this creature is decent. Looking at the
constructed aspect, you have to go a little out of
your way to take advantage of this creature.
However, if you do, you might be able to stall out
your opponent's side of the board while your
creatures keep serving through.
Obviously, this is a creature that is much better
for limited than constructed. Its fairly easy to
draft into the cleric theme to take advantage of
its ability as well. It's not a first pick by any
means, but it is a decent pick if you don't see
much else to help your deck along.
This card is pretty good in sealed if you can
get him. Hes a little underrated. I try to avoid
playing white in draft though, unless I must. He
is 1/3 though so if you go first he makes a good
morph blocker. If your opponent has lots of
clerics too this guy can be insane, but its real
rare for that to happen. Seeing how legions is the
last pack you open you can't make a deck around
him without guessing to get these and if you do
you'll usually only get maybe one.
And as for constructed, this is a legions
card and its not rare. Its useless here.
