Will-o'-the-Wisp

I don't even know what to say here. This card was great in the beginning. And I mean like way back in the beginning of Magic. I'm talkin' like year two or three. Unfortunately, we are much better at Magic now as a community. That's bad news for the WotW. It is a cheap regenerator. That's always neat. However, it doesn't fill much of a need or void for any particular deck type or color. And it's a small creature at that. So I wouldn't worry too much about this card. It's neat for limited play, but not much else I'd imagine.

Will-o'-the-Wisp

Absolute poo. Yes, it is a small creature with regeneration, but why would you waste slots in your deck playing a card that does absolutely nothing? There is no reason for this card to see play; if you are thinking of putting it in your deck, please don't. Think of the children. You know, the ones who will be looking at your deck and copying it. They'll think it is good, and then a bunch of people would have a bad card in their decks. So, for the sake of Magic as a whole, please don't play Will-o'-the-Wisp. In any format.

Will-'O-The-Wisp

An interesting thing to bring back for Black. Will could be a good add if you were trying to set something up and you need something to hold off any creature, including flyers in the meantime. That being said, it's probably better suited to casual play where you have something elaborate to pull off.

In limited, it's not a horrible add to a black deck, though I can think of a few things I'd much rather see for my build. Still, it's good filler if nothing else.

Constructed - 2
Casual - 3
Limited - 2.5
