Viashino Sandstalker

Interesting if you have something with "when a creature comes into play" effect. More for the casual fun deck builder. In limited, you'll see this guy stalking the board on occasion, bouncing in and out of play.

Viashino Sandstalker - I've always thought that the sandstalker's self-bouncing ability (later seen on Viashino Cutthroat and Glitterfang, among others) was one of the most interesting abilities ever featured on a creature. There's a lot of levels to it. At first it seems like a drawback, as you have to recast it every turn. But there's a couple good sides. First, it dodges your opponent's sorcery-speed removal. When you're playing against someone that relies on Wrath of God, that matters a lot. Second, it lets it come into play multiple times. This didn't matter much until Glitterfang allowed you to take advantage of "spiritcraft" triggers every turn. Sandstalker is with us in 9th edition, and pleasantly so.

Constructed Rating - 2.3
Casual Rating - 3.2
Limited Rating - 3.4
