Squealing Devil

This card is OK in limited play, but isn't that great for anything else. Don't go out of your way to squeeze this guy into a deck any time soon.

Casual: 2

Squealing Devil,

For Red Black decks, an okay idea. It would be infinitely better if it had haste, too, or if you could play it at instant speed. But because you cannot, that really removes some of the punch that would distinguish this card. Still, as a 2/1 for 2, and being a Red creature with fear(!), it's a'ight.

Squealing Devil

This card really has me on the fence. As a red card, it's Enrage for one more mana and sorcery speed. That's not very good. But if you spend black on it, you get the Enrage plus a 2/1 with Fear. For no additional mana, just a different color of mana. Nezumi Cutthroat was a 2/1 with Fear, and it was one of the more potent two-drops in Kamigawa block limited for the duration of the format. So, if you can pay black and red, this is a good card. But if you can only pay red, it doesn't really seem worth it. +x/+0 effects are only really useful at instant speed.

Constructed-- 2.5
Casual-- 2.5
Limited- 4

It’s a Sorcery speed Enrage that costs one extra, but comes with a 2/1 body if you paid a B. The inherent advantage being you don’t have to pay the extra mana until the spell resolves, preventing you from tapping out just to foiled by an opponent’s counterspell.

Constructed – 3.5/5
Limited – 4.5

hmmm... I like what this guy stands for, I just don’t like him very much. He screams R/B rush but as you can see in my Hellbent deck I have a very unique way of approaching R/B suicide. He’s a 2/1 with fear for RB that may give another creature and average of +2/+0. I’m sorry but I’ll take a Rakdos Guildmage over him just about any day of the week.

1.5/5

LIMITED

This little devil is interesting. He has fear, could drop on turn two and put your opponent on a clock but I don’t like the cost of RB to be able to keep him in play. If you get him later in the game his ability to pump up a creature could come in handy, but it’s close to useless if your opponent has any untapped creatures. If you go with R/B I could consider him but if you splash a third color I would have to think about him really hard.

2/5
