Frost Raptor

It's Wind Drake with benefits. In Limited, it's a win condition if you can get enough snow mana. In Constructed, you'll have enough snow mana, so it gets better, but can it compete with all the other 2/2 fliers soaring around?

Constructed- 2.5
Casual- 3.5
Limited- 3.5

Wind Drake is decent in draft. And this, for most situations, is just a Wind Drake. The untargetability can come in handy once in a blue moon, but the double snow cost of it can be tricky. Still, this is an excellent limited card. Blue likes cheap fliers and this is a cheap flier. This is one of those foundation cards for any limited deck. You need to have one or two of these to be the filler between your bombs.

Constructed Rating - 1.8
Casual Rating - 1.7
Limited Rating - 2.6
