Moldervine Cloak

I love this card. It's one of those cards that no one seemed to pay attention to when it first hit the scene, but after a few solid decks playing it made some noise, everyone started wanting it. What makes it even more threatening is that it has dredge, so it may just keep coming back when you need it.

Constructed: 3.5
Casual: 3
Limited: 3

Ugh, pure evil. Especially in limited. This is one card that I dread to see in my opponent's hand. It is also one I will grab and even splash for if I have to. It's just that damn good. There aren't a ton of answers to it in limited, and if you don't have one, it's brutal. Great card...fun to play.

Constructed - 3.5
Casual - 4
Limited - 4.5

Moldervine Cloak

This card has been praised to the heavens for almost as long as it's been in print simply due to the fact that it can regrow out of the graveyard and attach to creature after creature, much like an Equipment. It gets around the difficulty inherent to Auras. But if this were really an Equipment, which Equipment would it be? I think it's closest to Vulshok Battlegear, which saw absolutely no serious play at all. So why is this card taking off? Maybe because you don't pay mana to put it into play and then pay an Equip cost. Or maybe because it can go to the graveyard for whatever reason and still come back. Or maybe because there's just no good Equipment in Ravnica block at uncommon.

Constructed- 3.5
Casual- 3
Limited- 4.5

Enchanted creature gets +3,+3 and the card can be returned to your hand by milling a very reasonable two cards. This card has already proven itself to be a constructed worthy card and a reasonable first pick in limited. This is part of the reason R/G decks are so fast and resilient. Kird Apes become Wildfire resistant and Dryad Sophisticates become 5/4 unblockable powerhouses.

Constructed – 4/5
Limited – 4.5/5

Court Hussar

CONSTRUCTED

I don’t like him. If you’re playing U/W there are better cards you can be using and this guy simply doesn’t do enough to make the cut. His effect is ok but he’s no Telling Time or Compulsive Research, not to mention that a Wrath of God on turn four is a lot better than a chump blocker on turn three that costs 1UW for all intents and purposes.

1/5

LIMITED

I don’t think I like this guy on this format either. His effect is no great thing, he does have the ability to keep a few creatures from coming after you but if you find yourself playing U/W in limited, the last thing you need is more defensive cards.

1.5/5
