This card is very powerful, but not likely to
stick around long enough in a booster draft or
sealed deck game in order to deliver much help
for your side. By the time you have enough mana
to tap out and make your opponent discard two
cards, your opponent will have either used all
the cards in his hand or found a way to destroy
your Stalker. Constructed play is where this
card shines the most. Disrupting Scepter was a
main stay of control decks many years ago.
Control players happily tapped four mana and
their Scepter (at Sorcery speed) to cause their
opponent to discard a single card.
Ghost-Lit Stalker only costs one more mana (a
black mana, though) to make your opponent
discard TWO cards. Very powerful in the right
In limited, this card is much better than it
appears at first glance. Because it's a
realistically costed 1/1 for 1 mana, it doesn't
really hurt to have it in play. Then, when you
get to 5+ mana, it really is nice when you don't
have another use for your mana. Used with the
Black Honden or other discard effects from the
block, and it can really hurt your opponent. In
casual, it could work with a discard themed
Constructed - 2
Casual - 3
Limited - 3.5
Ghost-Lit Stalker is kinda funny, that in it's
easy to bring out first turn,
but its other effects cost quite a bit. Great
for spirit decks i see it with
an effects that if you can afford it, can really
disrupt your opponets hand.
The channel ability is kinda unique i think in
that yes it's expensive mana
wise, but nontheless really a disputer hand
wise. What it really is, is a Waking
Nightmare on a stick, except it's a little more
expensive, but you can use the
effect over and over again.
