Dimir Cutpurse

I can't really complain about this guy, but I'm not overly impressed, either. He still needs to bust through to get a cool effect; otherwise, he's just a Gray Ogre. However, if you are playing blue-black, Dimir Cutpurse definitely warrants consideration. No matter what format, I see Dimir Cutpurse as an overall above-average card, but no more.

Amusingly enough, I just bought a playset of these on Magic Online last night. I decided that I wanted to put together an aggressive blue/black deck for Ravnica Block Constructed, and this little guy seemed like a necessary purchase. Having had a chance to test the deck (which is doing just fine, thanks for asking) a bit, I recognize this guy for the solid creature it is. In most cases it presents a must-answer situation for your opponent, if played early. With a bit of quick removal, you can quickly set up a card advantage situation that will be hard for the opponent to overcome. He's a spirit, too. That doesn't matter so much for Ravnica block, but there's fun stuff to do with him in a more casual format. Kami of the Waning Moon,anyone?

Definitely a card that has found popularity in some constructed builds. It takes discard a step further, and gives you the added bonus of drawing a card. If card advantage wins games, this takes card advantage to a new level if you can get through with it.

In limited, it's a must play, or at the least it's not a bad D-draft that you can get some $ value for. So if you find it in your hands, you probably take it. It's also a fun casual card worth playing.
