Sisters of Stone Death

Wizards of the Coast is DARING you to try to play this card. The casting cost of 4GGBB is extremely daunting. However, should you manage to get this giant thing into play, be prepared to take advantage of a creature with more SICK abilities than anything this side of Morphling. You get to force creatures to block you for just one green mana, if you are blocked by are are blocking a creature, simply push the REMOVE CREATURE button for one green and one black and the creature is removed from the game. Later, why not return one of the creatures you have removed from play for the low, low cost of 2B. This creature's abilities are frighteningly powerful. Of course, you have to get her into play...

CONSTRUCTED: 3.0
CASUAL: 3.5

Man...oh....man. I'm not sure how many of these will see tournament play because of it's cost, but I definitely expect to see a lot of the Sisters of Stone Death sold to casual players. This thing can force creature to block it. It can kill creatures. Then it can take those creatures to come work for your side. Crazy. Again, the cost is a bit much, but once it's in play, it's likely to be pretty strong.

I'm diggin' this card for any form of Magic that doesn't go too quickly, meaning a lot of games outside of tournament play. For any level of competitive play, Sisters of Stone Death is just going to be too expensive to see any play; however, casual players should give this card serious consideration.

I hate this card. Seriously. This card is unplayable in constructed formats because it doesn’t do enough to justify playing it in any format. It is extremely expensive for a 7/5 body, and using all of its abilities requires a truckload of mana. In any constructed format there’s far better things to be doing with fourteen mana over two turns. So why do I hate it? This is a ridiculous card in limited. The only saving grace of this card is its high casting cost. This is, overall, a card that removes skill from the game. You play this, it dominates the board. Due to its size and the black mana in the casting cost, this thing will be impervious to most removal. I hate cards like this. If a card is going to be a limited bomb, at least it could be remotely playable in constructed.

Constructed 1.5
Casual – 2
Limited – 4

Geez...this is pretty damn scary. Also very mana intensive in cost. But if you can manage to get this on the board somehow, the Sisters are totally brutal. Basically, it's 6 mana, steal a creature that can't evade blocking. A must play in limited, but be sure to support it with mana accelleration. Sisters is game over if you can pull it off.

Constructed - 2.5 (unless someone finds a way to reanimate this, then 4.5)
Casual - 4.5
Limited - 4.5

Everyone loves combo cards. And with this one you don’t even have to worry about not having one of the pieces because.. it’s all in this card! I’d love to bust this gal in sealed at the prerelease. Just think of how awesome it would be to slowly destroy your opponent’s army, one by one, stealing a few too, and they can’t do a thing about it! :D

I think that too many people are going to dismiss this card unfairly. You don’t have to pay six mana per turn; three mana to remove something from the game is still very good. No creature is safe when Sisters is on the board. People are going to try this gal in Rock. I don’t think he’ll do too well due his casting cost of eight mana, but if you can get him out, she’ll be very good.

Constructed: 3.5
Casual: 5
Limited: 4.5

This may prove to be a very useful card indeed. With the new Concoke
ability coming in, i can't wait to see what kinda game play the new set is bringing in. Very good for retrieval and is going to show magic players that you don't really need alot of mana to get your creatures out, you just need some creatures out to get others.
