 Triskelion

Ignoring the Mephidross Vampire combo-ey chewy goodness, the Triskelion is still a great card. In the worst case it's a splittable Lightning Bolt for six colorless mana. In the best case this is a nice four power creature you can cast with any color mana, and can trade with a 4/4 and kill a couple smaller creatures and throw damage at your opponent's head. Even in limited this card is a high pick.

Constructed: 3
Casual: 5
Limited: 4

 Monday - Triskelion

It's funny how cards like this never go away. I remember way back when, it got played a lot. Then, for some reason it's popularity faded. Then it was rotated out of the format. Then it got reprinted in 8th Edition. It went overlooked for a long time, and is now slowly finding its way into more decks. Unfortunately, the card, as fun as it is, only fits specific purposes for a small percentage of decks out there.

Constructed: 2.5
Casual: 3.5
Limited: 3.5

Triskelion

Yes, Trisky came back to us last year in Mirrodin. Triskelion is one of those rare opportunities to love a card as a competitive card, then as a casual card and then as a competitive card a second time. Way back when Antiquities first came out in 1994, Triskelion was a perfectly playable six colorless casting cost lightning bolt that could be divided up between up to three targets. As a little more time went by, it became obvious that Triskelion was a little too expensive for competitive use. Last year, Mirrodin brought back Triskelion. In Mirrodin limited formats, Triskelion was a solid gold first pick in a format where six mana, particularly six COLORLESS mana, was not too hard to manage.

CONSTRUCTED: 2.5
CASUAL: 3.0
LIMITED: 4.0
