Gruul Guildmage

First of all, I love all Guildmages. This Guildmage comes closer to being constructed-worthy than most of the others. Obviously, this card will be most valuable in limited play, where both of Gruul Guildmage's abilities will be very useful.

Gruul Guildmage

Again, another solid offering for Red/Green decks, and one that may see some constructed play. Sacrificing some land to get in that last bit of damage to finish off your opponent is awfully appealing. The Guildmages have a great advantage in that they are only 2 cost creatures, most with some very solid abilities. Everyone is raving about Red/Green possibilities this set, and Gruul Guildmage could fit right into that. A first or early pick in limited, too.

Gruul Guildmage

I wish this card were better. The activation cost on it make it less than favorable I think. Seeing what tricks Red/Green has at it's disposal, paying four mana to activate this guy is only going to be worth it if it's setting up the kill.
