Friday - Red Hot
I can see how
this can be quite fun. It's also a great 4
mana creature, as it has a large rear. But I
don't find the drawback very fun.

Red Hot Hottie
Last Tuesday night, my opponent had two of these
2/5 girls in play, and I had to repeatedly allow
them to attack me unblocked. You see, we were
playing in the Guildhall, the upstairs loft
where the team practices each week. Downstairs,
I had a wife and a five year old trying to
sleep. The Unhinged ability of Red Hot Hottie to
make me scream real loud (like when someone says
the secret word in Pee Wee's Playhouse) caused
me to take LOTS of damage. If this were not an
Unhinged card, without the special
making-you-scream ability, a 2/5 for 2RR would
be decent at least.

Red Hot Hottie
I don't know what to think of this card. It
looked good when playing in a couple drafts, but
I've never seen it actually do anything useful
in a game when played. I wonder if making it a
3/4 would have been the way to go. It is a good
filler for a draft deck but far too small to be
good in a constructed deck. Feel free to take it
as a middle pick in a pack, or play it as a
20-22 card in a sealed deck, but don't put too
much faith in it.

Red Hot Hottie -
I looked at this card and it's freakin' cool!
Unfortunately, it doesn't really do a whole lot.
For four mana you don't get a real powerful
character. It was interesting to her some people
scream "AAAAAHHHH!" each turn. There was one guy
that had to scream it three and four times a
turn. It was good stuff. So from a humor
standpoint, it's pretty funny. It can be a bit
disruptive though in many situations. Neat card,
but not that strong.
Red-Hot Hottie --
I'm sitting on the fence with this card. On one
hand, you do have a good shot of putting some
counters on creatures before Red-Hot Hottie
eventually goes down to larger creatures.
However, you will need your opponent to opt to
block with a creature that will stay alive *and*
that won't send Red-Hot Hottie the way of the
dodo. Otherwise, you'll have to leave her back
on defense and hope that she can do some good
blocking whatever comes your way. Overall, I'm
going to say this card is mediocre at best.
In limited, I won't complain too much about a
2/5 body, especially when I don't see too many
huge creatures in Unhinged. She should serve as
a decent blocker.
