Kjeldoran War Cry

This card provides a good combat trick for limited play for a good cost.
Obviously, this card gets better and better the more of them you have in your deck, but the beauty of this card is that it's totally playable even if you have only one or two in your deck. This card's value is not dependent on you having a large number of them in your deck. Many limited players have pointed out that Coldsnap has virtually no green or white cards that are unplayable in limited. On the other hand, this card is strictly for limited, its ability being nowhere near useful enough for most constructed decks, even mono white weenie.

CONSTRUCTED: 2.0
CASUAL: 2.5
LIMITED: 3.0

Just stay away from this card. White has so many better cards for enhancing your creatures that are more efficient and advantageous. Just stay with the tried and true cards like Glorious Anthem and Crusade.

Kjeldoran War Cry

Combat tricks are nice, especially in White Weenie decks like the ones this card was obviously intended for. And this trick gets better every time you play it, so if you play it, you're playing as many as you can. Looks like it would be good in Limited, especially since you can play more than four copies, but you'd need lots of copies AND lots of combat-ready creatures to make it work. Jordan Kronick could tell you how good a gameplan this is in Limited.

Constructed- 3
Casual- 3.5

Kjeldoran War Cry - I've seen a lot of people getting very excited about the War Cry in draft.  Honestly, I don't see what all the hype is about.  There are some great "kindles" in this set, but this one seems a bit lackluster.  Like most morale effects it has a chance of totally turning the game.  Or it has a chance of doing absolutely nothing and sitting in your hand while you wish you had removal or a creature.  I'm not a huge fan of taking a lot of pumping effects in limited.  One or two at most is all I'll run and this thing requires you to be running more than just a couple to be effective.
