Hurricane - Wednesday

I like this card a lot. I think this card might be the only green card of quality that dealt direct damage. I think it should be left out of 10th personally. I'm a huge fan of green, but I like the fact that it doesn't deal damage. I think it helps with game balance a bit.

Constructed: 3
Casual: 2.5
Limited: 3.5

Hurricane

I voted for this over Earthquake. While Earthquake was just another "meh" card, Hurricane is a breath of fresh air (no pun intended) for all Green decks. Green is even worse at flying than Red, so Hurricane will almost never take out your best creatures, but it could easily take out a few of your opponents. And it can hit players, which is a sorely rare ability for Green. Green can almost never win the game outside of the combat step, and Hurriane actually gives Mean Green some reach. I really hope this makes it back into the Core Set.

Constructed- 3.5
Casual- 3.5
Limited- 4

Hurricane

The green X spell - Flyers bugging you? Wipe them out with Hurricane. But you have to have the life left to support it. On the other hand, if you're opponent has less life than you, you can use Hurricane to end the game. Decent, but not ground breaking at all.

Constructed - 2
Casual - 3
Limited - 3

Hurricane
XG
Sorcery
Deals X damage to each player and each flying creature.

Hurricane, the opposite (and I believe lesser) number of Earthquake. Unlike the Quake, Hurricane's uses are much more limited. Sure, it gives Green direct damage, but that's really a secondary benefit. It's main use (that of clearing the board of your opponent's creatures) is much less reliable. For the most part, non-flyers are going to be the bane of your existence. It does have a use as a sideboard card, I suppose...

Limited: 2.5 out of 5.
Constructed: 2 out of 5.
Casual: 3.5 (from a theme deck viewpoint) out of 5.
