Copperhoof Vorrac

This card is as hard to love as the boar-ish face that adorns it. In limited, this card is just fine, giving you a creature that can seriously mess with your opponent's head. If they have a lot of untapped permanents on their side, your Piggy is GIGANTIC, if they want to tap some land and possibly risk mana burn, they can adjust the size of your Vorrac. This card was USUALLY good enough to play in limited, just don't mistake the Vorrac for a BOMB, because he's not THAT good. The obvious problem with this card is that it lets your opponent have a lot to say about how good it is. As problematic as Vorrac's ability is, it is his casting cost that really sinks him from contention as a constructed deck entry. In constructed, you don't run a five casting cost creature without getting something very close to a win condition on your side of the board. Copperhoof Vorrac just doesn't qualify.

CONSTRUCTED: 1.5
CASUAL: 2.0
LIMITED: 3.0

This card seems like it could be good, but it's all an illusion. You can't control your opponent's permanents that well. And there are a lot of ways that they can tap them. So, more often than not, your best is just going to be an overcosted 2/2.

Constructed: 1
Casual: 1.5
Limited: 1.5

An interesting card, at least. While it would never be seen in the tournament realm, it is something kind of fun to watch in limited games. If you're opponent is willing to take a bit of burn, they can sometimes tap mana just to kill it in some cases.
