Zur's Weirding

A weird card to say the least. It's definitely a cobo piece, as on its own it's a bit useless and too symmetrical. In Constructed it's turning lifegain into lockdown, but it does little else.

Constructed- 3.5
Casual- 3.5
Limited- 2

Zur's Weirding

I swear that this card has spent more time going back and forth between the crap rare bin and the top decklists of each format than any other card I can think of. In every format it begins by being poo-pooed by the elite, until someone finds a way to abuse it. And it's a very abusable card, by the way. It just needs to have the right team to play on. Currently, in something like Firemane Control, it fits the bill perfectly. A little narrow to be earning a high rating, but good nonetheless. The politics this elicits in a group are worth the fact that you're probably going to get beat down by all your friends. Because, to beat you down, your friends first have to convince all your other friends that they should let you have that great topdeck they've got coming.

Constructed - 3
Casual - 4
Limited - 1

Zur's Weirding

A card that has seen lots of casual play, and recently has gotten some attention in the Firemane Control decks. With a couple of Firemane Angels in your graveyard, this card becomes a soft lock on your opponent's draw phase, which can easily seal up the game. Outside of that deck, though, this hasn't seen high-level play, and it isn't even played much in that deck these days.

In casual, pair it with some good lifegain and lock your opponent out of their deck. This can be easily abused here.

In limited, it's not worth it, as it's symmetrical.

Constructed - 3.5 (in the Firemane deck)
Casual - 4
Limited - 1

So today we have Zur's Weirdling, I like this card because if you see something scary coming up, you can put it in the graveyard, however your opponent do the same to you, so it's a double edged sword...if you play this just make sure you have something to combo it with.

Constructed: 3/5 If you can combo it, go for it
Casual: 3.3/5 Johhy's of the world unite!
Limited: 4/5 combo to your hearts content.
